In Loving Memory....

Our little Roxy Dog! How Roxy came to be...? When my little brother Scott was mountain biking up behind the capital several years ago, he came across a little lost black lab pup. Scott, being the tendered hearted little guy he was, decided this dog could not be alone any longer. He took the laces out of shoes and made the puppy a leash to bring her home. Once at home, Scott fed her and gave her plenty of water. He had an immediate bond with this lost little pup. Mom of course, told Scott "absolutely NOT." "We will not have another dog in this house!!!!" Scott put posters up all over the neighborhood but no one claimed the dog. By this time the dog had a name..."ROXY" and a master and a family. Best of all, Mom fell in love with her. And Roxy has been part of the family since....around 15 years!
Loves To Play Fetch
Enjoys Chasing Cats...But She Never Knows What To Do With Them Once She Has Caught Them!
HATES Thunder, Lightening and Rain
Likes To Take Herself For A Walk
Young Children Make Her Nervous
She Listens To EVERYTHING Scott Says
Hides Under The Bed
Eats Grass When She Has A Belly Ache
Despises Getting A Bath
But Likes To Swim In The Lake
The other night Roxy escaped from the front door while no one was paying attention. A few hours later I noticed she wasn't following me around the house as I locked up. I went outside in hopes to find her on the porch waiting for me. (She often took herself on a walk and would wait on the front porch for us to let her in!) Sadly, Roxy wasn't there. As I was calling for her, my neighbor asked who I was looking for. I explained it was the dumb dog and if he saw her to give me a call so I could go get her. A few minutes later, my phone rang. Steve told me a little black dog had been hit by a car and was on the side of the road. I got in the car to see if it was her, but by the time I got there, someone had all ready picked her up. We aren't sure if Roxy died or if she was rescued. We haven't been able to locate our little Roxy Dog and we miss her very much. I am so sad that our family dog of 15 years is gone, she wormed her way into the hearts of everyone. She will be missed and we LOVE you Roxy!

Oh Julie! I know how you feel! I had to put my cat down on Monday after 9 years. He attacked me big time and I couldn't take the chance of him attacking a grandchild. It was so odd. He's been my baby for sooo long! It's so tough.
