Arrival Story: I was born to Daisy Jo and Bodacious Jo on March 28, 2008. I was one of a litter of 4 boxer pups. My Breeder parents told us we were the last litter, as they were going to fix Daisy Jo. They found it hard to get rid of us puppies, as they grow attached to us every day we stay with them. It was getting harder for them to part with us. My Breeder parents almost did not give me up, but then someone contacted them.....
My new Mommy found me on a website, and contacted my Breeder Mom about me. What won my Breeder Mom's heart over - was the questions that this lady was NOT asking. She realized that the lady inquiring about me wanted me to be an addition to a loving family. This Lady also works from home, so I would be able to spend time with her everyday, and not be locked up in a puppy cage or left alone in a house. Well, those 2 human ladies starting chatting, as if they were long lost friends - and the Breeder said the lady could buy me if she got me fixed, micro chipped and loved me to pieces.
Done deal - or so the saying goes.
My New Mommy and Daddy drove 1 1/2 hours, the very next day, to pick me up and bring me to my new home.
On my first night at my new home - we had very bad weather - severe thunderstorms. That did not scare me - in fact I slept through all of it. All that traveling and meeting new people and my kitty brother and sisters made me quite tired.
I am the first animal my Mommy has ever had that was not a stray or a shelter animal. I know I am lucky, that I had a great breeder and I did not suffer like many animals do on a daily basis.
That is why my Mom and I are donating blankets, toys, pee pee pads, dog treats and money to any Boxer Rescue Organization that needs the help.
If anyone knows of such a shelter in need - or any feline shelters that cater to sick/injured/handicapped felines or canines - could you give us a shout?
We are stocking up on blankets, since winter is around the corner, and would love to share these with those animal friends in need.
Live, Love, and Licks to everyone
Today is my very 1st Birthday and it has started with a BANG (OH JOY)!
My most favoritest place in the world -** Boxer Town **- is having a Luau Birthday Party for me - FUN!! I will be wearing a hula skirt and hula-ing the day away :)
Mom has gotten all sentimental on me - as she cannot believe that I am already one year old - cuz she says it seems like yesterday when they brought me home. Mom decided to post some videos of me - just playing (nothing too special) - just to reflect on how much I have grown right before her eyes. One thing she remembered - looking at the videos - was how I was ALWAYS active - and the family called me "Busy Lizzy" - BOL!
I know Mom has SOMETHING up her sleeve today - as she said she has a special surprise for me - but I have to wait until my friends (Chewkie and Gizmo) and myself come back from a run. Hmm - I wonder what she is up to?
There has been a lot of changes during my 1st year - and 2 additions to my furmily - but one thing has always remained the same.
My friends on Dogster and how much they mean the world to me!
You are all the Bestest Present I could ever receive!
I am going on a ROAD TRIP next Saturday!!! Oh I am so excited I can BARELY contain my puppy self!!
Me, Mommy and Daddy will all be taking a long road trip to Missouri. Why - you may ask?
We are hitting the road so I can FINALLY get my Christmas Gift!!
That's right - next weekend we are picking up my BABY BOXER BROTHER!! HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!!
Mom got an email from the Breeder this week - trying to figure out when they could schedule a pick up time - for Mom and Dad (and of course, yours truely). I guess they are going to be busy with shipping the other baby boxers to their new homes and families.
Mommy and Daddy will not have my baby boxer brother shipped to us - so they are driving all the way to MO to pick him up. Mom says it is around a 9 hour drive one way - so we are in for a very long day indeed - but it will be worth it!
Oh My Puppy Stars - the time is getting closer - I will finally have my Baby Boxer Brother home with me!
This was my first New Years and I was not sure WHAT to expect.
I heard the barkings of my friends - that on New Year's Eve you stay up til midnight - then a big glittery sun drops from the sky, shredded paper falls from the sky(must be from all the pups at Rainbow Bridge), and you blow horns and stuff ~ to celebrate the passing of one year (as in - Thank Dog I made it thru another year) and to celebrate a brand new year.
For me - it didn't work out that way. Instead - I attended a ceremony - as my kitty bro Skinner got married, at the stoke of midnight, to his girlfriend Chelsea Louise! I have a sisfur-in-law! Who knew that sick lil guy would get his act together - and become a married man? I would like to send out my wishes for happiness to the newly married couple :)
During the Christmas holidays - we added another addition to our family. I WISH it my my baby boxer brother ~ but he is still too little to come and live with us. NOOOOOOO, instead Mom ended up getting another c-a-t!!
Oh - Like we need more c-a-t-s running around the house - as if there is some feline deficiency in the household! :(
I admit - I was a little miffed about another one of "them" coming into my house. Mom explained that this was a kitten (a baby c-a-t) that she decided to add to our family. Mom said the lil guy got off to a rough start - and eventually had one of his eyes removed. For those keeping score - that is 2 one-eyed kitties in my household! I told Mom - we are starting to look like a freak show, with the motley crew of fur babies she has. Mom agreed and said she would have it no other way.
My new Baby Kitty Bro's name is Binx - and I have to admit - he sure is a CUTIE PIE! He is afraid of me - and hisses when he sees me. I try to run up to him and explain that I am just a lovable pup that likes to play. But M-O-M jumps in and won't let me further the discussion.
This new little guy already was picked as one of Catster Daily Diary Picks - who knew a lil baby kitten could be an author and achieve recognition. Hmmm - I think I should fire my literary agent and get a better one!
We already got off to a **BANG** of a start this morning - the 2nd day of 2009.
It all started with me snoozing on the sofa, Mom at her computer (guzzling her coffee - as if it is her lifeline), and Skinner chasing Baby around the house. Suddenly - we all heard Winston "Mew" (which is unusual - as she is the silent type). Mom got up (coffee cup in hand - Heaven Forbid if I take a sip while Mom is away) to see what the ruckus was.
Baby beat Mom to Winston - and lo and behold - Winston had a mousie (and I am not barking about the catnip kind either)!! OH FUN!!! Baby distracted Winston - and the mousie got away and ran downstairs.
Let me disclose this bit of information - I have NEVER seen a mousie before, up close - I didn't know what to expect or even how they walked. I soon found out - they don't walk - mousies SCAMPER -- and it creeped me out. They make this high pitched "squeaky" noise too - it rattled my teeth in my puppy head - oh that high pitched noise!! MAKE IT STOP!!
The mousie that ran downstairs was in hot pursuit by Baby, Skinner and Winston - and I decided (despite the fact that I was skeeved out by this little fur ball) to join the pursuit! FUN FUN FUN !!!
Well - my kitty siblings corner the mousie in the hallway downstairs - when suddenly - that mousie bolted towards ME! "EEEEEKKKK" ~ I Screamed~ and proceeded to stomp on it with my paw ~ "get that Mousie away from me!!"
I am happy to announce - this morning - I am officially a hunter! I got that mousie with my paw :) (Baby says I hooved it - with my moose hoof).
Mom immediately took Mr Mouse outside - for an outdoor burial - while I remained inside - sniffing out more mousies with my kitty siblings.
Mom says the mice sure are cute - but they are filthy animals and are not healthy as they leave droppings all over. Since we have a sick kitty, Skinner (whom is now in remission) - we have to make sure these mice do not leave droppings - as they can make Skinner ill.
After the dust settled ~ Skinner walked up to me and hissed "You stoopid puppy - CATS hunt mice, not DOGS".
HUH? We DON'T hunt mice? Have you ever heard such nonsense uttered?
Between you and I ~ I think Skinner is miffed that I caught it and he didn't - that's what I think.
Here's to 2009 ~ may it continue to be as eventful and FUN as the first 2 days (woof hoo - just wait until my Baby Boxer Brother gets here - oh Butt Wiggles and FUN)!
