Eleven years ago, Lexie Lou lost her battle with lymphoma. It is an insidious disease that spread through her in spite of an aggressive round of chemotherapy. She had been groomed by me in October and we went to the vet in November when the vet noticed her swollen neck. I would have noticed it the month before, but there was no sign of it. Despite trying to keep her alive, she succumbed to cancer in a month and a half.
She was one of the litter that Drew gave birth to in 1999. Lexie Lou was a wonderful girl. She loved her mom, my daughter Michele and her first family in my house. She will always be remembered. Rest In Peace sweet girl.
