Governor Hogan: 'First dog' Lexi dies

Gov. Larry Hogan said his "best friend" his dog, Lexi, of 16 years died Tuesday in his arms while he "kissed her goodbye."

Hogan made the announcement on Facebook shortly after the dog's passing, drawing more than 1,000 comments within hours.

"They say that a dog is man's best friend. That sure was true for me," Hogan wrote on his Facebook page. "For 16 years our dog Lexi has been a much loved member of our family. Through good times and bad, she was always happy, and her love was unconditional. It is hard to describe how much she meant to us and how much joy she brought to our hearts."

Hogan said Lexi died while he held her at 10:40 a.m.

He shared three photos of the dog along with his message. One shows Hogan and first lady Yumi Hogan seated in front of a Christmas tree with the small white-and-gray dog in the governor's lap. Another pictures Lexi outside on a field of green grass with the tag, "Lexi, the first dog" on her collar.

2. Considering that Hogan is a Republican,

the dog is most likely in a better place.
