A whole new experience

 OMD, you guys, you won'ts BELIEVE what I did the other day!! We went up last weekend to see our Best Guy, and he told us that there was something called a dog park just around the corner that I might want to try. I've heard some of you talk about these things, but I'd never actually been to one. (Momma says there's one in our town, but it's small and has not-responsible owners that don't clean up after their dogs. Yuck.)


So we showed up and Momma took my walking string off. There were all these others doggies around that looked like fun, and I hoped she'd introduce me! And then.... she just said "go play." You mean I can just go do whatever I want???





Oh boy oh boy did I have FUN!!! I ran around sniffing at other dogs, then they sniffed me, then we ran after each other! I introduced myself to bunches of humans and wasn't timid at all like I usually am. I just felt so free and confident! I ran SO many laps around the park, I lost count!! It was just the mostest amazingest day.


And Momma said afterwards, "The proof is in the pudding."

 

I didn't see any pudding, but I knows I was sooooooo sleepy after we gots home. Instead of wiggling around making sure I got all the attention from Momma and our Best Guy, I just curled up on the couch and slept until it was time to go home. 


Momma says we'll definitely go back there. I can't wait! ...But I think I'm already tired. BOL!

I'm back! With big changes!

 Hiya folks! I'm BACK!! Did you miss me?? Momma and I missed you all lots and lots. We've talked about it, and we're going to try to stick to a new posting schedule that will let me keep all my furiends updated with my life without the blog taking over too much of our lives!


 

You may have noticed a big change to the look of our blog. Well, LBR is undergoing some big changes. Momma called it a "corporate restructuring," but she said it just means that LBR is changing some stuff about how it operates but is going to not only keep helping boxers but be able to help even MORE boxers!! Pretty pawesome.


But Momma decided that with all the changes, it was time to make a change here. See, this blog started as the official LBR blog, with lots of different LBR alums writing their perspective of rescue life. My great-brother Casey was in the second class of contributors recruited to help. But no one else has written anything on the blog for years, and Momma struggled with how much she was supposed to talk about just MY life versus the rescue. Plus once Facebark hit big, no one really ever read our little blog for rescue stuff. So with all the changes, she gots permission to change the blog to just MINE. We'll still talk about the pawesome stuff that LBR does, because I'm a Legacy Gal for life! But this is no longer an official blog. 


That means some design changes, and a new name! Goodbye Legacy Chronicles, you were a pawesome blog with lots of grreat content. But welcome the new age of Matilda's Boxer Banter! We'll probably keep fiddling with stuff for a while, because Momma has NO idea how to do any of this design stuff. Just be patient with her, she's only human.


Until laters, folks!

Power of the Paw for Baby Austin!

 Long-time readers will remember Baby Austin, an LBR pup born to a momma we rescued and one of Casey's special furiends. It's hard for Momma to even remember that he's all grown up now! 


 

But Austin's momma let his foster momma know that he's having appetite problems and went to the vet, who thinks it might be lymphoma. Momma is devastated. We'd really appreciate if you could direct some Power of the Paw his way. He's still our baby!!

Back to work! And a break.

 OMD, folks, you'll never guess what happened yesterday. Momma went into work, but she came home really early . . . and then she was dragging a bunch of stuff back into the dining room. This is starting to look familiar. She said that her boss decided virus numbers were spiking so much, he told them to work from home as much as possible again. So Momma packed up all her stuff and set up the home office again. It took a little reminding where things went, but soon we were both back into the routine.


                                                          Head of Security hard at work! 

 

So I've got to make sure Momma keeps her nose to the grindstone fur a while. We've been a little too busy to blog lately anyway, and this is making it worse. So we're going to take a little break. We'll still be reading and commenting on blogs, but don't expect many posts here fur a while. Momma says she wants to see if her blogging spirit comes back once 2020 dies. But don't worry about us, we're fine!

Sheesh, Momma

 

You're always telling me to make friends. How am I supposed to do that if you keep bringing me back inside whenever I try to talk to the new dog in the yard behind us?? I don't know what you mean about "We are not going to be THAT neighbor." 


Mommas are so unreasonable sometimes.

Congrrats, Major and Champ!

 I leave all of the silly politics to the humans, but I was very excited to hear that Major and Champ have been named as the futures DOTUS -- Dogs of the United States. It's always better when there's a dog in the White House. And apparently Major is a rescue, so he can help bring awareness to impawtant issues of doggie welfare.
