The Adventures of Lexy and Bruce continue!

We are getting closer to the release of our upcoming campaign to help alter the misconceptions of Pitbulls and Sharks together. If you believe what you see on the Internet - believe this - misconceptions aren't truth. Allow @lexy_the_elderbull to show you how amazing it is to know and love a dog just like her. And let @sharkeducation help you learn about sharks of all kinds! I do my best of course, but they are full of endless resources and excellent photos/videos. And lastly, let @ghettorescue bring it home to show you that it's a magical thing to adopt a soul in need - they really do need you as much as you need them.

Sending a shout-out to the amazing @fluffandtuffdogtoys for their "Bruce" shark creation and the love it has brought to a dog that had to learn what the word "play" meant. Here's Bruce in his glory - tags still attached, but happily swimming with Lexy. :)
-
@ghettorescue and @sharkeducation will receive 100% of the proceeds from the final design. We're hoping to do a giveaway as well so keep an eye out. Much love and thank you all for the continued support. <3

And she ends her day the same way she started it.. lounging on the window seat with her #bff Bruce πŸ’• Hotel living is the best - especially when your hotel is attached to a local craft brewery !

#goodnight friends.. May you sleep well and dream of belly rubs & bully sticks 😴 (Bruce - aka Mac - the Shark by @fluffandtuffdogtoys )

A lazy Saturday morning with her BFF Bruce πŸ’—πŸΆπŸ¬ #lexyandbruce

This is one HAPPY Lexy! After just over two weeks away for business her dad is home and of course he gets a warm and wiggly welcome from Lexy and Bruce πŸŽ‰πŸΆπŸ¦ˆ
(PS.. my home was much tidier when I left for work .. looks like Lexy spent a few hours inspecting the blankets and toys 😁) #reunitedanditfeelssogood #daddysgirl #lexyandbruce

Honestly .. some days I just can't handle her sweetness πŸ’—
Left her for 15 minutes while I stopped in at the shops. You'd think I'd been away for days. Hand / paw holding, playing hard to get .. We played this game for about 30 min before she settled in and slept on my lap πŸ’— But of course Bruce was there as moral support (Shark toy by @fluffandtuffdogtoys )
#shehasmyheart #elderbull

Following our 5 hour adventure today Lexy is knackered. She and Bruce have been cuddled up happily snoring away since we got home.
So #goodnight from #LexyAndBruce 🐢🦈
Sleep well and dream of belly rubs & bully sticks friends.

Lexy and I had a fabulous time attending the protest walk today organized by @hugabulladvocacyandrescue as a stand against the Province of Quebec's Bill 128. This proposed legislation would see dramatic and both tragic & incredibly morally problematic changes to animal welfare in Canada and is marked solely against pitbull-type dogs. A discrimination that cannot be tolerated.
Pibbles, pibble lovers, and animal advocates of all shapes, sizes and breeds came out to raise their collectives voices of "NO"! A huge thank you to the pictured @enerihoo for being such a great friend & advocate! I met her approximately 2 years ago in our neighbourhood while walking Lexy when she stopped and asked "excuse me.. is that Lexy the Elderbull... I'd like to learn more". We've been great friends ever since.. she is like Lexy - gentle, kind, giving, & curious. And of course, without planning we both turned up sporting one of our fav charities!! @standupforpitsfoundation .. myself in my @mister_todd_ shirt & @enerihoo in her Angel shirt. πŸ’•πŸ‘
Who says humanity is broken.. there are amazing people all around us.. we just need to open our hearts & minds and listen.

After a soggy Spring the sunshine is finally making an appearance in #Vancity and with it my prep so Lexy can enjoy β˜€οΈ Following Lexy's cancer diagnosis last year the Vet strongly advised we keep her out of direct sun or keep her covered when outside - sunscreen wouldn't be enough.
Trying to stop Lexy from sunbathing is like trying to stop the sun from rising: she IS a sun worshiper. We will keep her indoors during the higher UV times of the day and in very warm temperatures, as well as whenever we can. But she still needs to be able to enjoy natural vitamin D and warmth. With that in mind we looked around for a light shirt covering and the best fit and cost that we could find quickly for her was this cute white tshirt from @oldnavy .. it says "This Girl Can". So perfect for Lexy! She can and did overcome her abusive past, she beat cancer... there's nothing this girl can't do! πŸ‘Š

This @oldnavy Tshirt is perfect in the interim till we can find a 'pit' sized proper sun shirt. This is a girls size large (10-12). It does exactly what we need it to do - cover Lexy's belly and areas with less fur. Now I just need to find something she can wear at the beach. We also supplement with dog safe sunscreen for her nose and toes πŸ’•

Goodnight friends. Sleep well. Dream well.

Oh look what Lexy's dad brought her from Scotland.. a lovely bathrobe πŸ’— Perfect for keeping cozy aprΓ¨s soggy West Coast walks β˜”οΈ Thank You @edinburghhound for helping pick out the perfect size for Lexy. (Robe made by @dogrobesuk )

Hold onto your seats friends... and get ready for the cuteness!

#LexyAndBruce in an adventure as you've never seen them before brought to life by the ever talented @sharktopia_cc 🎨
We've teamed up with @sharktopia_cc for Lexy's upcoming fundraiser celebrating our love of Sharks & Pibbles. This is a spin off from last year's #DiscriminationIsBullshark campaign where we asked you to consider these two animals - both tragically abused by humans, misrepresented in media, and discriminated against simply because they exist. This June we will once again ask you to help us celebrate these gorgeous animals in support of two amazing charities: @sharkeducation and @ghettorescue
This drawing is just a teaser of what's to come. Can't wait to share the merchandise! ❀ 🐢 🦈

The lovely @lexy_the_elderbull happens to have lots of adventures with her best shark-pal Bruce!
----
I'm actually working on a design for these two that will provide 100% of the proceeds to shark conservation (@sharkeducation) and a dog rescue (@ghettorescue)
----
Just like the existence of sharks having a bad reputation to some people - so do Pitbulls and Bulldogs. Go visit Lexy. You'll fall in love the same way you did when you first came to Sharktopia.

Another sweet #repost from @lexy_the_elderbull
Lexy came from a bad situation and wasn't interested in toys. One day she picked Bruce out at the pet store and has taken care of him ever since. She's since learned to chew and play with other toys but Bruce is only for lovin'. πŸ’ž
A year ago today we shared our first #lexyandbruce photo. It read simply "a pitbull and her shark Bruce". Never could I have imagined how much joy, beauty and hope this sweet relationship would bring to so many.
I am equally honoured that this love opened discussion about discrimination, animal cruelty and abuse, media bias, and raised funds for pitbull rescues and shark conservation groups through our #DiscriminationIsBullshark campaigns.
Lexy and Bruce are the symbol of what we should all aspire to be. Without prejudice or discrimination, open hearts and minds, kind and devoted.
May we all find a love like theirs. (Don't forget you can get your very own Bruce .. aka Mac ... from @fluffandtuffdogtoys )

An amazing campaign by @cjiro that gives back to the animals and all you need to do is post your story with #leveragelove3 (and double check spelling so you don't embarrass yourself with an error like I realized I just did on my chalkboard) .. whoops) ・・・
Lexy came into my life when I needed her most. After losing my previous senior rescue Pete my heart was in chaos. Because Lexy desperately needed a home and to know what it felt like to be loved, cared for and safe... I knew how much she needed me and this gave me the strength to pull myself out of the dark and into the light of her beautiful soul. Lexy has also given me another cause to fight for .. my mission to support seniors and pibbles gets me up every morning with a spring in my step and determination in my heart.
