Arrival Story:
My husband and I had never had a dog together! We always wanted one, but lived in an apartment for our first few years. Finally, we got a house, a nice back-yard, and our opportunity came when Hubby's uncle Tom had a litter of Lab pups! We got first pick, and Roxy just came up to us, happy and bubbling about! Well, we took her home, and that was it!!!

Bio:
Roxy was our first dog as a married couple! We got her when our youngest child was 10 months old! Roxy was so much more work than I thought! We had many hard times together, and I sometimes thought I wasn't gonna make it with her!! Like the time she broke into 10 cereal boxes in the pantry, shred them all over and ate most of them up, then got sick!! Or, one of a million times she jumped our fence, and took off roaming the neighborhood!! But, My mom (grandma) always loved Roxy......and snuck her food under the kitchen table all the time. When my Mom died a few months ago, Roxy became very depressed....so, I made it my mission to spoil her beyond belief to cheer her up! I am happy to say, it worked! Roxy is no longer depressed, although I think she misses mom sneaking her tid-bits now and then;)

Hi!Its been a while...Winter has been so long.Its already Febuary 17th.My sister Olivia is growing up SO FAST!She'll be 11 this year!She says she is excited that she's almost a teen.In my POV,Being a teenager probably isn't that special..You just grow and grow!Well its been so warm lately,and that means I get WAY more time outside to play,walks,and who can forget the TREATS??!!I love summer.Spring is nice.You get to go so many darn places!I think I have to go to bed now.Olivia was the only one out here in the living room with me and she says she's tired....But she promised me that she'll wake up early so we can hang out with mom and watch her play her Wii excersize Zumba game...she said she'll give me a treat!Yay!:D

My Tail of Devotion for Roxy

Dear Roxy,

You and I have had some difficult times together! It hasn't always been rosey, and I have to admit, my patience wasn't always what it ought to have been. But, you stuck with this family, five years now, throught thick and thin, and you are a well behaved, affectionate, loving family member. I used to resent Dad and the kids because they always had fun with you - but, I had ALL the work - cleaning, vacuuming your tons of shedding hair, grooming you, vet visits, and always always cleaning after your MANY MANY naughty things......

But, my Mother loved you so, and always tried to point out your finer points to me! Well, mother died a few months ago, and it left me a basket case....and it left you depressed! I suddenly began to worry about you. What I always took for granted - your happiness, playfulness - well, it was gone!! I thought you were sick, but the Vet said all was O.K. I began researching, and stumbled across symptoms of doggy-depression. Well, I knew that is what you had....and, I knew I was the ONLY one who could turn it around. So, thus began our NEW relationship with each other.

After five years, we have a new understanding!! I always thought you were Scott and the kids dog, but - it wasn't until Mom died that I realized that you were MY dog too!!

I am so happy to say, that you are no longer depressed, and I am not AS much as a basket case! You have helped give me something to do. You, pierre and the kids.....what I would without you - I don't even know!!

So, thank you Roxy, for being patient with ME. I thought it was the other way around, but really, you KNEW better all along!! You are a great dog. And, I am very proud of you. And, yes, I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!
