Arrival Story: Yes this is for 4 dogs, mom can't keep up with 4 accounts so we're merged into one. :) Charlie the oldest is a Flashy Fawn Boxer boy born 2005; dad has 2 tattoos of Charlie, he is the only dog that can hear in our family. Coco came to us from a rescue at 6 months old on the day after Christmas Eve in 2006; She was born deaf but mom taught her a bunch of tricks in ASL (American Sign Language) and Coco got her AKC CGC for obedience. Rocket was also a rescue and a longer story, he wasn't supposed to be ours but by surprise he came to our home instead. We actually drove from San Diego to Missouri to rescue him on Christmas Eve 2007. He had to have a surgery at 10 weeks old that amputated his penis because he was born with a condition called hypospadias. Rocket knows a lot of signs but hasnt gone his CGC test yet. Dottie is our youngest, a white Boxer with a spot on her eye and dots all over. She is also deaf and also was a surprise rescue. Actually more like a foster failure. She fits right in though :) ...Our mom is a photographer and we've been published in magazines and calendars :) look up 'some like it shot photography'
