One Is Never Alone When You Share Your Home With Fur Friends!
The other day I was asked by clients if I feel lonely or alone when outside working in my flower gardens.  I had to laugh for I never feel alone or lonely for I have the company of one if not four fur friends.  In fact this was the face I saw as I was busy setting geraniums in the garden.  I looked up and there was our sweet girl Corina.  She stayed at the edge of the garden, just like the picture for the entire time I … (46 comments)

Happy 10 Year Anniversary to Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue, Hickory NC

 
Today Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue is celebrating their 10 year anniversary.  In these 10 years they have saved over 2000 Boxers and have helped to heal, foster and find these animals their furever homes.
I have adopted 4 Boxers from Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue over the years and am always amazed at the passion these volunteers have for these Boxers.  I have learned so much from these wonderful women and men.

Which of Our Dogs is Camera Shy??
 
 
It is amazes me the different personalities that our pets display throughout the day.
 
 
This is Corina… Does she look Shy?  LOL … in fact she runs to me when I bring out the camera. (She is a rescue).
 

 
 
We have three great dogs, Guthrie, McGrew and Corina.  I was out in our yard the other day and wanted to capture a few new pictures of the gang.

This is one of my dogs that was re-cycled and saved.  Her name is Corina and we love her.  Thank goodness for rescue groups.  She came to me from Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue.
 
Doesn't her face show joy in being loved and having a home to call her own? 
 
Earth Day is a good day to look at ways to save energy as well as re-cycle.  It helps if we all look for ways to do our part.

This FurBaby Can Make You Smile!!

 
 
 
This is my little female Boxer named Corina that I adopted last August.  By her size and shape I think she is a mix between a Boxer and English Bulldog.  She has the round body and short legs.  I don’t care what her geneology is for I love her.
 

 
 
Go rescue when you are ready to add a fur member to your family.  You will not be disappointed!!
I adopted Corina from Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue.

My Boys Having a Boxing Match this Afternoon!!
 
My 3 year old black Labrador named McGrew loves to play and play and play.  When I rescued and adopted him last year my 7 year old male Boxer named Guthrie (also a rescue) was not very pleased.  Guthrie was very aloof for the longest time but McGrew just kept on following and hanging out with him.
 
Here they are heading out through the yard.  I see this all of the time.  McGrew is definitely a herding dog. 
 

 
They are now best buds and I actually find … (18 comments)

Here Are The Results of Tender Loving Care!!
 
In December 2011, in fact the day after Christmas, I lost my beautiful male Boxer named BABE to cancer.  I was heartbroken, my mother missed him and our two other dogs were also mourning his loss.
 
In January 2012 I began to search for a new dog.  Would it be another Boxer?  I really saw one in a high kill shelter that needed rescued, but with my mother’s health condition and the unknowns of this Boxer, we had to pass.  Fortunately he was pulled by Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue and was … (18 comments)

rescue: Just Waiting to be Rescued!!! - 01/13/13 04:34 PM
Have you ever considered fostering or adopting from your local animal shelter or rescue group?
Last year I had the very painful experience of losing two of my Boxers that I had for many years.  One passed after Christmas 2011 and my female Boxer passed in July 2012.  To say I was heart-broken is an understatement.
Not only was I mourning their loss, but my male Boxer named Guthrie was also very down and sad.
I knew that I could not replace BABE and LadyLilly, but I could open my heart and home to other dogs in need of a loving … (20 comments)

rescue: Helping Another After Losing One That You Love Here in Charlotte, NC - 01/10/12 08:38 PM
As many of you know I had a real heart break on December 26, 2011.  My Boxer named BABE died that day.  It was such a shock as well as a major loss.
 
The past two weeks have been sad for my family and my other pets.  Everyone is fine but everyone is experiencing the loss.
 
I gave a donation in honor of BABE to Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue for that is where I first met and fostered my sweet Boxer and have enjoyed having him in our lives for over 8 years.  BABE can never be replaced, but … (17 comments)

rescue: Waxhaw, NC Agrees Upon and Adopts the Final Animal Ordinance on 9/13/11 - 09/20/11 07:56 AM
In January 2011 a 5 year old boy was mauled and killed by a couple of dogs.  Since then there have been many meetings to discuss appropriate measures and ordinances for the people who live in Waxhaw, NC.  The first draft in March was overly restrictive.  After several more meetings and discussions there was a vote and all agreed.
Here are the final agreed upon ordinances for Waxhaw, NC.
You are allowed 5 dogs per acre. License fees are set on an annual basis. Professional breeders and animal rescuers are excluded from the restrictions concerning the number of dogs allowed. Escalating … (12 comments)

Enjoying Life After Escaping Death Row.
This is Guthrie and BABE and they were both in high kill shelters and to be destroyed when Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue pulled them to safety.  I was the lucky one when I agreed to foster them.  As you can see they found their "furever" home with me.

Each and every day I give thanks for having them in my life.  They make me smile, laugh and my heart sings.
