All in the Family


Roxy Roxx
English Springer Spaniel
September 4, 2012

Roxy is a 3 year old Springer Spaniel. She is posing below her stocking...which she loved opening on Christmas day! Roxy's story... Roxy's former owner went to the pound to pick out a dog and came across Roxy and knew she was the one. He had an instant companion in Roxy. Sadly, he was diagnosed with cancer and lost the battle last July. His dying wish was that Roxy go to a good home. His son and daughter-in-law posted Roxy's story in a blog. A mutual friend re-posted her blog which my husband and I read and were incredibly touched. We met Roxy and fell in love. She has been with us since this past August. We cannot believe that we have only had her for five seems like she has always been a part of our family. Roxy loves to go on her daily walks...SHHH, do not say WALK unless you mean that you are taking her right then! We have to refer to it as the "W". We live next to the desert so she can run off leash. Many times we get in the car and drive further into the desert so she has new places to discover. Roxy hops in the car and takes a seat in the back. As soon as we turn onto the dirt roads, she moves up to the front seat (now a lap dog), scanning the desert for the perfect spot. She loves to chase rabbits and investigate all animal holes. Roxy is the master at flushing out birds from bushes and trees. You can actually see the smile on her face after doing so. As I mentioned before, Roxy thinks she is a lap dog. She will crawl into our laps for kisses and a nap. Roxy is incredibly smart. We are convinced that she speaks English! We recently purchased an antique open crate to keep her toys in. Roxy watched us pick up her toys and place them in the box a few times. Now you can find her picking up her bone and putting it away on her own. If only the kids could do this. We love her and have never felt so much love from a pup. ~Roger and Kristy

Roxy you must be a very fit and incredibly smart dog from your story up there. Running around in a desert and chasing rabbits. You look very cute by the way too. I hoped you enjoyed the years of your life and more to come!

Roxy, you look so comfortable! Are you tired from all that running & exploring in the desert? You are such a smart girl knowing how to put your toys away. My Maisie only knows how to pull them all out! Have a great life, Roxy!

A beautiful English Springer Spaniel in an "English" setting. Roger and Kristy, I am incredibly moved by Roxy's story. Springers are highly intuitive, loyal, loving dogs. Four generations of my family have had Springers. Enjoy your beautiful girl and please give her a sweet kiss for me. Thank you.

I commented on Roxy yesterday but didn't read this profile until today...very touching! Thank you for giving this lovely dog such a good home. I think that her late owner somehow knows she is in good hands.
