Lexi and Xander…the spastic Vizslas’s Home Page!!
A few years ago I decided I really wanted to get a
dog. I haven’t raised a puppy since I was
(and really I guess my parents did that).
I ran a few internet searches on what dog is right for you and
with the Vizsla.
I’d never heard of one, let alone seen one, but strangely I was
Lexi (Alexia) got her
name from my
extensive search online for Hungarian names.
Alexia means defender of man (although she really won’t defend
she wouldn’t hurt a fly). My friends
went up to
She bonded with me on the way home (I didn’t drive and held her). She seemed to know right away that she belonged with me. Pretty cool!
I’m not a breeder nor do I ever really want to be one so she did get fixed….she didn’t like it much though!!
She’s very friendly with people and other dogs. Although her 2 Dalmation friends try to beat her up, she’s faster…
She’s got a dog walker daily, Emily, who brings her kids over. It’s pretty funny to see the 1 year old girl in the crate hiding from Lexi.
I started training her right away and she was incredibly smart….she picked up roll-over in just 3 or 4 tries.
By the time we took puppy class she knew it all already. Its funny the instructor kept using her for demonstrations.
Lexi likes to swim in the summers, especially off my boat. Go walking with her pregnant buddy, Natalie on the railtrails.
If you’ve never owned a Vizsla, they have quite a bit of energy. Laps around the house at full speed are commonplace. She loves to bark although not as much as other male Vizslas
She’s got her own chair in the living room, for watching TV and looking out the big window at squirrels…don’t even try to sit there.
Oh and did I mention that she’s a disco diva…(yeah I know its not right!!)
I’d not get another breed but a Vizsla again…In fact I may get her a little sib soon….
They definately get along great! Actually Xander
beats Lexi up pretty good at times....
My friend Kathy from work has 2 Vizslas also, although her older one Jessie just passed away.
Lexi and Xander spend time at Kathy and Bob's when I go away on trips. They are getting a new
male puppy soon, should be interesting to see how Xander handles the competition!
(Chellie, Jessie, Lexi and Xander)
How does Kathy get them to stay still like that???
Did I mention that they are huge Steelers fans
Lexi is on the left and Xander is on the right (and didnt like the hat much).
