Introducing... Hint #3?

Corbin wanted to give you another hint before I could have my own blog post to say hello, but I told him it would be pretty mean to make you wait even longer to meet me.  There is no hint number 3, so without further a-do...
Hi, my name is Lexie and I'm Corbin's new foster sister. 

I know some of you were hoping all 5 of my adorable puppies in hint #1 were Corbin's new fosters, but they were all adopted last weekend!  I'm so happy all of my beautiful puppies found wonderful new homes.  You see... when I was pregnant, some mean people chained me to a tree in Kentucky, I had my 8 puppies and did my best to take care of them... by the time rescue came for us, 3 of my puppies had suffocated in the mud that we were surrounded in.  They had ventured away from the length of my chain and I was beside myself that couldn't reach them.  I was very sad, but happy to know the rest of my puppies and I were safe.  They were about 3 weeks old when we were rescued.
5 weeks after our rescue, I was told my puppies were going to New York to find some great homes.  I still have milk left from feeding my babies, so I couldn't get spayed in time to go.  If I stayed at the shelter, there were more chances for me to get sick... or even worse, not make it out alive.
Momma lady couldn't stand the thought of that... so Friday afternoon the nice shelter lady told me how great I did keeping my puppies alive and raising them and that she was very proud of me and that I'd find a great place to live in New York.  I was very excited and I loved hearing what a great job I did with my puppies.  I jumped in the van and was ready for my journey to a new life for me and my puppies.
It was a long ride and I wondered if I we were ever going to make it.  But we did and I was greeted by some wonderful volunteers at Homeward Bound.  I watched my puppies get microchips so they would always find their way home if they ever got lost.  I saw super nice people come back to meet them, and then I said goodbye as they went on to their furever homes.  I wished them luck and told them I'd always love them and to enjoy every snuggly second they got with their humans.
I wondered where I would go... was nice shelter lady right?  Would I have a home?  Or would I go back in a cage?  Or tied to another tree?  Well... I knew the answer as soon as I saw Momma Lady.  She was busy doing stuff at the front of the rescue, but I kept my eye on her, because I knew she was mine.  She finally came over and introduced herself... I snuggled right up to her, I knew I was safe.  She told me I would be going to her home and that she would love me forever and eventually, I'd find my perfect home.  So I went home with her when the adoption clinic was over. 
Not to rain on my parade, but they had 13 dogs adopted on Saturday!  Including Corbin's last foster furiend, James.

Anyway, back to me.  So I got into Momma Lady's car and off we went.  She told me that Daddy Dude wasn't home, so she'd have to leave me in the kitchen while she got Corbin.  I thought to myself... what the heck is a Corbin?
That picture pretty much says it all.... I sure found out what a Corbin was!  It was a big, paw flailing, brown Moose. 
So, this is a Corbin, huh?  Momma lady swore he was a dog, but I'm telling YOU... he's a Moose.  And, if any of you were wondering... Yes, Corbin is a boob man.
"Ok, Moose Corbin... I think you've starred at them enough."
The first day was a little scary for me... I didn't want to let Momma Lady out of my sight because I was afraid she wouldn't come back.  But she gave me some wonderful snuggles on the couch and kept Corbin away from my TaTas.  She would often turn to look at me just to find out I had been staring at her... I couldn't help it, I was just so thankful I had a couch to lay on.  And when it came time for bed... I made it pretty clear that I was not going to sleep a wink, or let her or Daddy Dude sleep a wink if I had to stay in my crate.  So finally Momma Lady brought me in the bed room and tried to make me sleep on a bed on the floor... It took about 3 hours, but I finally wore her down by 4am and she let me sleep in the bed right next to her. 
Corbin let me in on his favorite pass time... the window!  I don't find it as interesting as he does, but it's a cool way to see the going ons of my new home.
He's also helping me learn a few things... like Momma Lady doesn't need to be in view 24/7, she's not going anywhere. I even spent part of Sunday and Monday night sleeping on the couch with him. He is also helping me learn that food comes every day twice a day with treats in between. At first, he came over to check out what Momma Lady gave me to eat and I told him to GO AWAY! But, he was right... and this morning I let him take a little piece of my food that fell out of my bowl.
He gives me kisses and keeps telling me that life only gets better from here. I sure do hope he's right.

Thanks for listening to my story.  I'll be hanging out with Corbin, Momma Lady and Daddy Dude for a while because they need to make sure I can't have any more babies before I can get adopted.  Maybe by the time I'm ready to go to a new home, I'll have convinced Momma Lady that this should be my home... it sure is nice and cozy here.

Oh and Corbin would like me to say:



  1. Lexie... What a wonderful blog post. You told your story so well and you have given us such a wonderful picture of your life with Corbin. I knew that was a special place, but it seems that Momma Lady and Daddy Dude knew just how to introduce you to your new place. Have a great time getting to know your new surroundings and ask them to let you blog again soon.

  15. WELCOME TO BLOGVILLE LEXIE... I am not ONE BIT surprised to have you say that Corbin is a Boob Man... We have always pretty much KNOWN that about him.. that is why he only wants GIRRRRRRL fosters. Ta Tas are obviously a turn on to him.

  16. Welcome, Lexie! You're a doll! Enjoy your respite!

  20. Lexie we're so happy for you and your puppies. We know you'll find a forever home and for now, you're all safe and loved. And enjoying what every dog's life should be.

    xXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  21. Lexie is so pretty. I am such a softie for mama dogs since our girl is a former breeder dog. I know when the day comes that she is no longer with us our next female rescue will be another mama. What a heartbreaking story, great to see she has the help of you and Corbin to heal.

  22. Oh my what a nice story, I was so sad at first and then I was so happy that your puppies will have forever homes. I bet you and Corbin will have a blast together while you are waiting for your forever home. Corbin, you are very handsome.

  23. I'm so glad you found a safe home with people who will love, respect and protect you. Corbin's a pretty good little dude too. Just keep workin' on the nice lady and I bet she'll adopt you.

  24. Lexie, welcome to Corbin's Place:) He is a great pup - and he does like the ladies. We think you might be on to a good thing there - he really needs to have a permanent sister, we think!!! You were such a good mom to your pups, and we are so very happy they found good homes. Sad about the ones who didn't make it, but it sure wasn't your fault. Stupid humans - they so didn't deserve to have you.

    Lots of luck finding your forever home, if you haven't already:)

  25. What an absolute sweetheart! (Also... yay Giants!)

  26. What a horrible, sad story. So glad somebody came to save you and that you are safe at Corbin's house. I hope all your puppies find wonderful homes. Don't worry Lexie, you are in good hands. :)

  27. Oh Lexie... You are so lucky that momma lady and Corbin (the moose) found you. You must be a supersweetheart if you made it up on the bed in your very first night. I'm glad that you have Corbin to teach you about the good life. Don't you worry - Corbin and his family will take care of you... you never will be tied to a tree again. You'll be lounging on couches and beds.

  28. Lexi - You sure are one lucky pup to be Corbin's foster sister! Your puppies are beautiful and we're happy they found their forever homes. Don't worry, Corbin will help you find your perfect forever home when it's time. Just enjoy the big guy's kisses while you're there.

    And YAY for James and his new forever home!
