Arrival Story: Josie then known as 'Bebe' was on the petfinder.com and my husband and i happened to come across her. We went to visit her in Santa Monica where she was being shown along with roughly 15 other dogs, 'Bebe' was the cutest there (in my eyes) and i could see that my husband had also instantly fallen in love with her. After a couple of hours of talking with the woman who was taking care of her and trying to convince her that we would be perfect for 'Bebe' she finally came home with us the same day. Sadly due to the fact that the person she was with wasn't fully able to care for her, Josie wasn't exactly in the best shape. Thankfully, Josie now has a great mom & dad who love her despite her occasional clumsiness and her now fully healed (broken leg) :)
Bio: Josie was born from a full bred Boxer female and German Shepherd dad. When the owner of boxer mom saw that the puppies were not full boxer, they were dropped off at a local shelter.
My mom and dad said that we're moving to Northern California this weekend because dad has to finish school and mom can work up there. The good thing will be that i'll be living with my mom and grandma where grandma has a big yard and it's just dirt, so i'll be able to dig holes and almost do whatever i want. I've been to my grandma's plenty of times so i know that the car ride will be a bit long but mom says it's necessary to help up later.
Today my mommy started going to school again, which means... no more hanging out with my friends at mom's work AKA the vets office. IT'S NOT FAIR! There i was totally happy, i had all of my aunts and uncles there who gave me treats every day and played with me and used to LOVE to pet me, but NO my mom decided to go back to school. She says she wants to be a nurse so that she can save the lives of people and maybe one day just work with babies which is what she wants the most. Anyway it wasn't too bad, as soon as she got home i kissed her and loved on her for 10 minutes; then mommy took me outside, which is when i saw Lucy, my neighbor i love playing with her because she's so much fun and is WAY older than i am. Mom says that one day I'll become a cool old dog like her too! well Lucy was outside and mom didn't let me play with her :( she says my leg still needs to heal (I broke it about a month ago while mommy was away) so if i want to be outside, Lucy has to be in so that i won't go crazy when i see her.
Now i think it's time for me to go to sleep because has yet another day of school and my daddy has to work. which means i have to be on my best behavior tomorrow when they leave me home alone.
