The latest on Lexi. She’s growing fast….

My new English Pointer Lexi is almost 21 weeks old now, and she’s growing fast. She’s up to 20lbs – almost 1/2 of how much she’ll eventually weigh – and her dexterity and coordination is improving. Training wise, she knows her name, and she’s picking up some basic commands: Come, Down, and NO (she hear’s that one a lot). I’ve been working on getting her to turn and quarter on command, too, and she’s picked it up very quickly.

Here are a couple videos of her. I shot this first one last Sunday. This was Lexi’s first time in thick, weedy cover, with limited visibility, and it took her a little while to get used to it.

I shot this next video on Tuesday. This is Lexi’s first visit to the local doggie daycare facility. While Lexi has been exposed to lots of other dogs, she’s seen this many at once. This video was shot within minutes of her being introduced to the pack. Lexi handled the situation very well.

  1. She has really nice conformation and is already holding that tail up nicely. That doggie day care video had me freaked out…My labs would have gone berzerk in there…(redneck Labs mine are LOL)

    She appears to have a very light and friendly personality…You done good man!

  2. Thanks – we’re thrilled with her. She’s a great dog.

    Doggie daycare is crazy, and it’s not for every dog. The folks who run it do a good job of weeding out the trouble makers, and there are always several people watching to dogs at all times, looking out for problems.

    Lexi loved it — and came home exhausted.
