I was in great need of comfort knitting this weekend. I’m afraid I have sad news, Xena passed away last week.
I know she had an exceptionally good dog life which has helped tremendously.
One of the people I called immediately was Xena’s breeder, Lora. Lora, in turn sent out e-mails to every breeder that had Xena’s “line” in their breeding program. She explained the Xena had passed and she wanted to know if their were any Xena progeny available.
Three breeders responded but they all had boys and I was set on a girl. So, Lora graciously gave me one of her dogs who is a Xena grand-daughter.
Meet Beatrix (Beatrix Potter). We will be calling her Bea. She is three years old and is an absolute delight. I am so happy to see how Bea has helped people begin to heal after Xena’s passing. She loves everyone and is such a little bundle of happy that you can’t help but smile and laugh when she is around.
