2008_10_lexi.jpgMan's best friend was saluted as one Bay Ridge's resident savior, as Lexi the bichon frise was honored at St. Patrick's Church yesterday. Last month, when Linda Deutsch was taking the 5-year-old dog for a walk, Lexi refused to go to the elevator and instead dragged Deutsche down the hall. It turned out that Lexi heard the cries of neighbor James Postler--an 85-year-old deacon at the church--who had fallen hours earlier and managed to crawled towards his apartment door to call for help, but only the dog heard him. After the rescue, Deutsch had said, "I was mad at her the day before because I caught her drinking my coffee I left by the sofa," but now, "She makes me so proud. She is a hero."
