Even though I have this photo on my sidebar I thought that you should know more about my grand-dog Lexie
who is a canine Shiba Inu, a breed which originated in Japan. Son Karl adopted her about two years ago
from an animal rescue shelter. Lexie had been abandoned as a puppy, and lived in the dump on the
Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Before she was one year old, she had given birth to puppies;
all but one died. Some kind soul picked her up and Lexie was taken to an animal shelter in the Twin Cities where
she was checked by a veterinarian and spayed. Karl found her image on an internet site. He met Lexie and her
foster mother at a dog park in Minneapolis, fell in love with Lexie and adopted her. She has been a part of our
family ever since and spends an inordinate and happy time with our much older Maggi, our own rescue dog. Lexie
is a loving, often mischievous dog but has her fears, one of which is a terrified reaction to cameras. Who knows?!
Our first dog, Loki, was a Norweigan Elkhound (still my favorite breed), but being animal lovers we made a
conscious decision only to adopt and own abandoned or neglected dogs. We've even fostered some (with
hilarious results)...Maggi was our first foster dog, but we couldn't part with her. Long story short...have a heart
and adopt one of these many, many animals that need a good home. I guarantee that you will never regret it!!
