I’m glad that you found her and that she knew kindness before she died. I’m glad that you found the owner and that he has some kind of closure, and I’m glad that she wasn’t killed by him. Aside from those thoughts there’s nothing but pain and sorrow. This kind of evil baffles me.

This whole saga is so heartbreaking. The only blessing is that he will know for certain she is not lost or stolen or in pain. I had a beloved dog disappear for almost a month. I don't know if someone took her or she got scared and then lost, but that was the longest 3-4 weeks of my life . I was 6 months pregnant and cried the whole time. She just showed up one day, skin and bones and covered in ticks blown up to the size of grapes ( well maybe not that big but big enough).
The not knowing is almost as bad as knowing what someone did to her. At least this man can be spared that.
They will pay for what they did. If not in this life , they will answer to God.

Yes, we are all standing around him and his little boy, covering them with our affection, thoughts and prayers.
I am so sad that Lexie was treated like that. Words cannot express the shock and horror of the sick individual that would do something like that to anything living. And yes, frequently, torturing and killing animals is a frequent precursor to doing the same to people. It is also a device used by abusers. I'm wondering if the killer is known to the owner and his family.
As others have said, bless you and your cousin for taking care of her and letting her know that she wasn't alone and that not all people are like that. While I believe that her killer has a special place in h*ll waiting, I also believe that there is a special place in heaven for those who take care of animals out of the goodness in their hearts, never expecting anything in return. You'll be there.
Let's hope the cut occurred when the person tossed the dog. Recently I saw one dog, a big hunting type hound chasing a truck on a lonely country road. It took me too long to figure the dog was being dumped and the pickup truck was trying to drive away but the dog was fast and the road narrow and crooked and the dog kept up with the truck until they were out of my sight. Somehow I thought they were training the dog to run fast until it slowly dawned on me they were dumping the dog. It would be fairly easy for a dog to get hurt in the process of dumping as all the dogs I've seen that were dumped are totally panicked or doing crazy things. We live where people think they can safely dump their pets. Not so. One older puppy just stood cowering in the center of the road. I stopped to help that one and when I got out she had disappeared. There was brush and woods on both sides of the road and I thought she had dashed into the woods when I got out of the car. Luckily I had a thought to look under the car, and there she was pressed up against a tire. Dumping a dog is bad enough but slitting it's throat and tossing off a bridge horrific. It's hard to stomach that kind of evil, let's hope it was just a misguided cruel act like the everyday dog dumpers I see. I think those characters see a farm and think the dog will be happy there and find a home, not that it will most likely suffer physical and psychological pain. Too bad Lexie didn't make it, but like others said at least she ended in the care of kind people.
claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
