My name is Christina and this is what started out to be my dog/horse blog named after my dog Lexi. Slowly my blog has morphed into a dog/life/farm blog. I love to take photos of everything relating to the farm and local events. I am also a Design Junkie and love to take my old run down ranch and redesign every inch into my dream retreat. Join Lexi, myself and all the delightful creatures at Bluebird Farm and have a peek inside our wonderful world... "The World According To Lexi"
Lexi, Nitro, Tallulah, Bailey, Bud and I are excited to participate in this weeks Saturday Pet Blogger Hop!

My love of doing dog and shadow photography started in November of 2010 when I got my first deaf puppy Nitro from the City of Salem Animal Shelter. I took the photo of Nitro in his blue sweater with his blue DEAF DOG tag and his big dog shadow and I was totally hooked!
Below is Nitro's very first puppy shadow photo I took in November 2010. Below Nitro's puppy picture are some "Doggy Dark Shadow" photos I took this week (Nov., 2012). It's as if the shadows tell their own stories for example in Nitro's puppy shadow photo, the shadow seems to say "I'm going to be a big important dog some day" and it seems his shadow was dead on!
It's been two years since we brought Nitro home to Bluebird Farm. Happy 2nd Dogiversary to my sweet Nitro the CED (Chief Executive Dog) here at our sister blog DeafDogsRock.com. He has changed our lives forever by giving us a special purpose of helping deaf dogs and their owners. Happy Blog Hopping and thank you for hopping by!

Dark Shadows Doggy Style By: Christina Lee
My sweet foster failure 12 month old deaf white boxer boy Bud.
Bud with some of my graphic special effects.
His shadow seems to be saying..."did you smell that?"..."I smell an intruder"...
My two handsome deafies and their big guard dog shadows!
Look at Nitro's cute nub of a tail in his shadow...such a handsome boy!
"Rutt Rowwww...I smell trouble"
Lexi and her sweet "big girl" shadow!
"Moma, did you say treat?"
Nitro looking at Bud "Dude seriously?"
The lines in Bud's forehead are his worry lines..he worries a lot.
Nitro's blue eye is his special brand.
Okay, I admit it, I just love to take photos of Nitro's blue eye!
My little Sun Goddess Tallulah! I love her curly tail in her shadow!
Thanksgiving Day Walk on The Salem Greenway
While the Turkey was cooking in the oven, we decided to take Nitro and Bud on a nice long walk on the Salem Greenway. It was a beautiful 60 degrees out on Thanksgiving Day and we really enjoyed getting out and about in the woods.
Nitro is looking at me as if to say "where are all the ducks mommy?"
Nitro checking out the cyclists on the Salem Greenway. Such a pretty backdrop don't you think?
My handsome deaf boxer boy Bud. He just turned one and he came to live with us the first week of September. He is what we all call a "foster failure" and now I am totally outnumbered with five dogs!
I would caption this photo "Bhahahahaha, I made it out of the shelter and I bet those folks who dumped me as a puppy at the river never thought I would end up being the head dog at Deaf Dogs Rock and saving deaf dogs from death all over the country!"
I love taking photos of my boys by the little red caboose!
Chris and the boys.
I decided to add one shadow photo of me and my sweet boy Nitro. He is such a pleasure to walk with on the Greenway.
Bud catching some fresh air in the back of the pickup truck on the way home from our walk.
"hmmm fresh air smells so good"
Bud has a hard time breathing because of his small air passages so he opens his mouth to "gulp" in the fresh air.
My sweet angel boy!
Tallulah is Nitro and Bud's side kick. She thinks she is a boxer in a small package.
Lexi would be mortified if she saw this photos because it makes her look like a "chunky monkey"....
Watching the main gate...
My little Tallulah and her sweet little shadow. I love her curly tail!
If there was a dog GQ, I think Nitro would make a great cover model!
Bud Chillin like a Villain!
I caught these shots just as I was getting ready to upload the shadow photos. The sun was low and it was just perfectly hitting Bud for some nice warm sunset shots. He was very relaxed and ready to take a nap.
