Meet our new joy! Baby girl puppy Lexi “Peanut” !!

by on August 7, 2012

Lexi says “Hello Friends!!!”. She’s probably going to be a little confused at all this blogging world, but hopefully you all can re-assure here that you’re all a group of super nice folks who will welcome her to the blog with open arms!

Meet Lexi, our itsy-bity-tiny cute-sy Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy, aka “Peanut”.

Her nickname given to her by her breeders is “Peanut” because she is the runt of the litter of 11 puppies. Lexi “Peanut” is almost nine weeks old now, but when she was born she came in at only 5 oz. Super tiny for a ridgie puppy. She barely even made it in this world, but she has the spirit and heart of a ridgeback and is now charging through life fearlessly. And with lots of love, care and attention from the great breeders, she’s now ours to take home and to love to bits and pieces!

Though Lexi is only nine pounds, she still holds up to her own. She loves to play and explore the backyard garden with curious puppy eyes. Lexi and Sierra have bonded quite quickly and their sisterhood began as soon as they started sharing toys and beds.

As you all can tell, we’re super happy to have our two-dog family back together again since we lost Dante last year. Our little family feels complete again.

So expect many puppy pictures over the next few weeks!! months!! or even years!!

hugs,

diane, todd, sierra and lexi “peanut”

Sierra and Lexi became quick friends

 They can share outdoor beds for now, but we’ll have to get a new one soon!

Lexi and her little “ridge”

Lexi and her first heirloom tomato. She says “yuck, not interested”.

becoming sisters…

back to our two-dog family!

You know, I make an excellent dog sitter. She is adorable! Rhodesian Ridgebacks always make me think of Harry Potter…one of the dragons was a norwegian ridgeback. Sometimes my nerdiness astounds even me.

Hi Diane and Todd, Congratulations on the addition of Lexi “Peanut” to your family. She is absolutely beautiful! I got teary reading how she almost didn’t make it after she was born.

Todd and Diane,

Greetings from Utah! Lexi is just adorable! What a cute Ridgeback puppy :) So glad that you two (and your caring, responsible breeder) saved the runt of the litter. Lexi is fortunate to have both of you as ‘dog parents,’ as well as Sierra as a canine sister. I’m looking forward to many more photos over the next several months and years. Thanks for posting! I’m so very happy for all of you!

Oh my goodness! She is precious. You betcha I welcome her with open arms…just be glad these arms are in NC;). I love her left “milk” leg that matches Sierra’s coat.

What a great picture of Sierra and Peanut on the outdoor bed – the size difference is so sweet. We once had a half Rhodesian-something else dog, the best one ever. All the best to you and your dogs.

Congrats on your Rhodesian puppy! Rhodesians are such lovely dogs. They have such great personality. Mine keeps me laughing. Can’t wait to see more pictures of her.

She is so adorable! How quickly is she taking the training now that she’s 4 months old?

This puppy is so cute! I love her name(s) too. I am definitely a dog person, however, I have never gotten to have one growing up. As soon as I have a house and family of my own, I WILL have a dog or maybe two. I love little puppies. My mom and I have actually gone to the humane society to look at dogs, however, it’s taking a little more convincing on my dad.

Lexie must be about 2 years old now. We have two wonderful Ridgebacks, one of whom is at my feet as I type. They are wonderful, wonderful dogs. We love ours so much. We have a male and a female. Would love to see more Lexie photos!

Lexi will be 2 in June. She’s turning out to be such a sweet and beautiful dog. Fastest dog on the beach – as long as the greyhounds don’t show up. ;) She’s our second ridgie, our first one, Dante, passed away a few years back. We love the breed so much and will always have to have at least one in the family. We’ll try to make sure we sneak a few more pup pictures into the posts for you. Lexi, and our boxer Sierra are frequent subjects on Todd’s instagram. When we were shooting our cookbook, Lexi was just a wee lass and her cute little puppyness is now immortalized in print. Always great to meet another Ridgeback family. Thanks for saying “hi”!

Big body, still somewhat of a puppy mind though. She has turned into such a sweet dog!

Hi!

I stumbled across this trying to find a do chua recipe. I am American and married a Vietnamese guy – hence my new last name – and we are experimenting with banh mi recipes. Your story was great and I will definitely go try these out! Then I saw the puppies. That little ridgeback is adorable! We also have two dogs – both are basset mix rescues – but we think one is half bulldog and looks a lot like a mini Sierra and the other we actually think is half ridgeback! I had a cooking blog for a while as well and just lost the time. But lately I’ve been inspired to start it up again. I love your photography and recipes and will now visit often!
