Even though I never met Lexy-the-Elderbull in person, she touched my heart and made my day just a little bit brighter when her posts would pop up in my feed. For those of you who don’t know, Lexy was never far from her trusty sidekick, Bruce the Shark. Together they navigated this world of uncertainty and chaos, educating and advocating for pitbulls and shark preservation. And they did it ALL with kindness and love.Magnificent and incomparable Lexy the Elderbull – we will miss you always and forever.

    Your dedicated cartoon to your Lexy the Elderbull was so touching and sweet. My little Bubbie is only 5 years old but when I see other precious sweet dogs leaving, I well up inside thinking how will ever let her go. I am sorry that I have no magic words to say except that my heart feels your sorrow and I hope Lexy gives you a sign that she still is around you.
    Hugs to you.

  8. Amy– So saddened for you and your family. Sending healing energy and strength. They come into our lives and eventually break our hearts, but we would have it no other way.

  9. I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my beautiful Jessy two year ago and still miss her. I have a new fur baby, Sam, he dis not replace her, I think she sent him to me. I adore him but will never forget her. My thought are with you and Lexi will be waiting for you at the rainbow bridge

  10. Amy L Clinger

    So sorry for your loss.
    It never gets easier, no matter how many you lose. What does matter is that you (and others, I am sure) spent their lifetimes learning from them and becoming better humans because of what you learned.
    Heaven just got a little brighter and Lexy will be waiting at the door to greet you when you get there.

    My heart aches for you knowing that you lost your dear Lexy. This cartoon is so poignant that it brought me to tears. Losing such a close member of one’s furrever family is devastating. Hugs, positive and healing energy go out to you.

  14. A million years spent with our precious furbabies would not be enough. Godspeed Lexy, we will hold you in our hearts, and see you in our dreams.
