Arrival Story:
What can we say! Rox just rocks! She was a rescue street-pup my nowson-in-law got while he and daughter #3 were dating but before they got married, named after Roxie Hart, the Rene Zellwiger character in "Chicage" which was popular at the time. Soon after, son-in-law daughter got married and and were living in a smallish 2-bedroom apartment with a newborn granddaughter, Roxie and the daughter's dog: way too much togetherness for a former street dog! We agreed to adopt Roxie from them; the 1st vet visit (Dr Jan) showed she had bad heart worms. Decision time! We sprang for the treatments. Though they were expensive and darn near killed her, we are now sooooo glad we did it. She's become our 24/7 buddy, 3rd-wheel traveling companion, and all-round joy.

She intensely loves to play!! We have to be somewhat careful when asking if she wants to go play "ball" (throw/fetch tennis balls) or go find "Tinker" (chase a sun-mirror reflection on bright days). More than once she has nipped us and caused whelps on our legs or thighs. Sne always uses her "soft-mouth grab" on our hands, but sometimes forgets this when going for our lower body. I'm sure her ancestor's cattle and sheep charges felt similar pangs when they tried to get out of step. It happens so fast, if she really wanted to do harm, we shudder to think of the possibilities. But what a GUARDIAN!!
