I love this little mongrel more than I can explain. Some of you will recall when I found her, a year or so ago well, to say she is settled in would be an understatement. Loved by everyone who meets her, Roxy has managed to totally adapt to being a cherished member of the family as opposed to who knows what horrors she knew prior to my snatching her off the road that day 😦
This (below) is what she looked like one day 1 of having her in my world: (note the massively dilated pupils? She was so scared) 😦
This was a few weeks later, I love how she now seeks fun and happiness. Possibly for the first time ever in her short life..
A reminder (it has not grown over, so it’s a forever reminder) of her horrible existance before I took her in:
She does so love her bed, and I love that she can totally relax and know she’ s safe here!
Scoffing mascarpone .. cos she can 😉
Hanging with new friends. She is so sweet, everyone just adores here.. except her previous asshole owners of course grrr
And one of my fave pics: How is this for relaxed happy pooch?
Tis fair to say that Roxy has possibly been put on this planet to teach me a few lessons, I’ve never had a damaged dog before. And it is quite different to dealing with a “normal” loved pet. But gosh it’s rewarding!
And a particularly sweet pic – Roxy and Hootie waiting to go outside. Hootie was killed a few months later by someone’s dog and for me, whilst the worst thing I’ve witnessed in a long time, it’s made me appreciate what a sweet nature Roxy has.. To still be kind and sweet after the abuse of her early days.. Wow!
And how she loved Hootie ..as did we all 😦
As I write this, Roxy is asleep in front of the fire, cuddled up to Remy the dobermann.
