Likes: Guarding Meimi. Playing with friends is the best: running, wrestling, playing tug, swimming. Sand-digging. Visiting grandad, he's so lovely. Sleeping in the middle. Sunshine. Weekends; on Friday afternoons she's so happy she always does a little dance :)
Pet-Peeves: Rumba is a very hedonistic dog, so she hates the rain and the sleet, doesn't like getting up early in the morning, not getting people food, leaving the dog park when there's still friends in there, etc :)
Favorite Toy: Her beloved green rubber Croc! She can carry it around for hours.
Favorite Food: Pasta pesto and rice pudding, yum. Grandad's reindeer steak. Cinnamon rolls. Ice-cream! Meimi's leftovers, and there's plenty :)
Favorite Walk: Tthe forests near her country home. It's not a walk, it's a RUN! Grandad's.
Best Tricks: Pretending she's fast asleep, pretending she hasn't been fed.
Arrival Story: My partner and I wanted to have a boxer for many many years, but were working and travelling a lot and lived abroad for a few years, so couldn't really find the time needed.
Rumba was born the morning after we returned to our home country of Finland. It was also my birthday, so we have a strong feeling that fate was heavily involved :)
We went to see Rumba when she was a one-week-old little rat-looking creature. After that it was pure agony waiting for seven weeks before she joined our family!
Rumba is such a joy to us, we love her to bits.
Bio: Rumba has unfortunately been unlucky with her health, and has had several mast cell tumours removed since 2008, and has had pains caused by a slipped disc in her neck. Despite of her problems she's still her happy and loving self, always friendly and loving towards everybody
I'm the Dog of the Day!
Thanks so much for this honour, it made me feel so much better already! My neck has caused me a lot of pain lately, so I haven't been able to do my normal walks or have any play dates, which is a DRAG!!!
So thanks so much everybody; I'll try and get better so I'll have tons of cool stuff to tell you about!
I know Mummy has been very very VERY bad with my diary, but now I forced her to write an entry;
last night we went to an art event, and I was the artist's muse!!! How lovely! There were at least six pictures of me, all of them very good, let me just add. Meimi and Mum loved them, too, even though Meimi was glued to the bowl of goldfish crackers... well, I had a little nibble myself, just to see if they were ok for lil sis to eat!
Will post pictures as soon as I get them, how exciting!!!
I just got loved by Della May!!!
(Another game of tag!)
Here's the newest dogster tag craze - being loved! Pick 3 dogsters you think are really pawriffic and paw a little about why! Let them know how much they are loved with a rosette or by paw mail! I'm guessing you can't love tag the ones that have 'tagged' you?!?!?
I was loved by Della May Bottomline, my fellow Dogster boxer. She's such a sweetie! We're very much alike, and I wish I could meet her one day!
Choosing only 3 is not easy - or fair, but I guess I just have to do it. So here goes:
1. Magoo, my old boyfriend and neighbour. I miss you! Come back!
2. Mauri. My oldest friend. You've always been there for me. I love you tons!
3. Buster, one of my oldest Dogster friends. And what a great friend!
