Easter Greetings From Abby & Alexis

Abby is on the job sitting cross legged in her PJs (gray bottoms & white top with a gray collar) with a teal Abby logo laptop on her lap. Sporting her signature explosive hairstyle, she is wearing a headset with microphone and her white cane is propped up next to her.

On this Good Friday afternoon, I wanted to take a moment to wish you Happy Easter greetings. I’m relaxing and spending time with my baby Alexis. Even though at 55 pounds she’s hardly a baby, Alexis is my retired guide dog and hence my family.

A Little Interesting Tidbit About Alexis’ Name

From the Greek name Αλεξις (Alexis), which meant “helper” or “defender”, derived from Greek αλεξω (alexo) “to defend, to help”. This was the name of a 3rd-century BC Greek comic poet, and also of several saints. Alexis came by her name honestly as she was the most loyal guide dog a girl could ask for.

Our Easter Message

We wish you not to lose the beautiful Easter feeling of new beginnings. May this spring bring you new hope, new friendships, and new perspectives.

Happy Easter Everyone!

  1. I hope you had a great Easter! … I love learning about your dog and I had no idea that Alexis has Greek Roots, so thanks for that info (I know a guy call Alexi so I´ll tell him!). You have chosen a perfect name for such a faithful dog. Sending love <3

    1. Easter was nice as my brother and I spent time with our mother at the nursing home and then visited our aunt. I hope you had a nice Easter as well.

      When I was searching for a name for Abby’s dog Alexis was always one of my favorites and finding that the history of it meshed so well with Abby’s story made selecting it a no-brainer. At the moment I don’t have a guide dog although I’m much closer to making the committment to getting one because my lifestyle is changing and I think now is the time. Thank you so much for coming by, reading and commenting. It does my heart good to hear from you!😘

  4. Happy Easter to both of you! Woof!

  5. Happy Easter! 🌷

  6. Have fun spending time with Alexis. Love the origin of the name. Do you currently have a guide dog? Wishing the same for you and yours.

    1. Thank you!! I do not have a guide dog now but I’m planning to apply to a couple of schools for guide dog training.
