Bio: Roxy is the biggest goofball you have ever met. She is always full of energy and ready to play. Don't be fooled by her sad eyes, she is the queen of making you feel sorry for her to get you to play with her! When she can't be outside, her favorite games are tug-of-war and hide-and-go-seek (of course she does all the seeking).
Because it’s Thanksgiving time, there is a change to the rules. Each player needs to tell seven special things they are thankful for. Tagged dogs must post the rules in their diary and their 7 things. Then choose 7 pups to tag and list their names. Let them know by pawmail or rosette that they have been tagged and to read your diary for the instructions on how to play.
1. I am thankful for my warm home in the winter.
2. I am thankful for my mom and dad who spoil me to pieces!
3. I am thankful for the family fostered me when I was owned by the shelter.
4. I am thankful for my mommy adopting me even though she was still in college and could have been kicked out of her apartment if caught!
5. I am thankful for everyone who loves pitties and says 'Boo!' to BSL!
6. I am thankful for my new sister Bailey, even though she often annoys me.
7. I am thankful for Dogster and Petfinder for helping people find and adopt dogs in need of loving homes like I once was!
I am tagging my new pals Bella, Poana, Coco, Daisy Jane, Gertrude Irwin, Nezzie, and Petrie!
I just had an accident in the apartment and mommy is not very happy with me. I haven't had an accident in a VERY long time. Mommy is very perplexed as to why it happened, but how should I know? She took both of us out about 2 and a half hours ago, but I don't remember if I actually went when we were out there or not. I just had to go so bad! Usually when I have to go I whine and mommy knows it is my 'I gotta go potty now' whine, but I didn't this time. I just squatted and went. Mom was typing on her computer in the other room and when she heard the noise she turned to look with a very angry face. I think she thought it was Bailey because she seemed very surprised to see that it was me. She yelled at me and hurt my feelings. I know I wasn't supposed to do it. I think she was just so mad because I haven't done that in SO long and she is confused as to why I did it. It's not fair though because Bailey does it WAY more often than me, so why do I get harsher punishment?? Mommy says that I am older than Bailey and more well-trained, but I don't know what that means! I hope I don't accidentally do it again anytime soon!!
