My favorite thing is just to be with my adoptive Mom. I'm really a 'people dog'!
I don't like it when Catfish attacks me for coming in the house! His claws are sharp!!
I love my tennis ball, especially when Mom and I play fetch in the yard. I now understand how to bring the ball back to her and drop it so she can throw it again.
We have a creek behind our house. I love to wade in it and look for frogs!
Tricks? Oh, do you mean looking up with soft brown eyes and saying I love you, in doggy speak? I'm really good at that!
I adopted Holly from a shelter where she was scheduled to be put down the day after I found her photo on-line. I hurried down the next morning to meet her and another boxer. The first time I met her, she licked my fingers then rested her head on my leg and looked up at me with those brown eyes as if to say, 'Will you take me home?' She is named Holly because she was adopted the week before Christmas and came home just four days before Christmas.
Of course, when I met Holly and her shelter pal, now called Bailey, I had to save them both. We thought Bailey was a boy, so I named him for George Bailey in 'It's a Wonderful Life'. We found out at the vet's during 'his' neutering, that 'he' is a 'she'!
So both Holly and Bailey left the shelter just before Christmas for their new home. They walked right into their new yard, had a snack, then played a while before settling down for a nap.
A few months later, friends of ours offered a wonderful home in the country, complete with children to play with, to Bailey. She's a much younger dog than Holly and needed youngsters to play with and lots of room to run. So Bailey's now living a happy country life, while we have our sweet Holly here with us.
She's a sweet, calm dog with the prettiest brown eyes. She rode right beside me on the front seat heading home from the shelter. I think she would have preferred my lap, but she's definitely too big for that! Since we don't know Holly's real birthday, we're using her adoption day, December 19. It seems an appropriate choice to mark the beginning of her new life.
Holly's such joy. She much prefers being indoors with me and follows me from room to room, sleeping by our bed at night.
She does love the outdoors, though, and enjoys romps in the woods behind our house. Splashing in the creek is a particular favorite. Watch out for wet paws!
Never give up!
