Look at that nekkid boy! Ha hah, poor Denmark. Denny had his surgery yesterday, so they shaved him nearly bald. That poor guy. He still is in a pretty good mood, though. I know he's going to feel a lot better now!
Lark and Pip also had their surgeries this week, so LBR is pounding down the vet bills. We still have two more surgeries to go, unfortunately. Poor Lark was supposed to have just a half-hour procedure, but it ended up taking more than two and a half hours to fix her hurt hip! I'll share a picture of her as soon as I get one that's safe to share. I'm not going to embarrass that sweet little lady like I did Denmark. ;)

At least LBR foster May has found a way to keep cool. AHEM, Mom, where is mine?!

Denmark is ashamed that he's the first of our babies who needs help. He has a torn cruciate ligament, and his surgery will be $2,000 - 2,300.
Look at this cute face! Pippi (because she's got a long stocking, see?) fell a long way and broke both of the bones in her back leg. It was a really nasty break, with the bones actually poking through the skin. Owwww! We're not sure how much her surgery will be, but another dog with a similar issue cost us about $2,600.
Look at handsome Walker! He came to us with a nasty injury that basically took all the skin off his leg! We didn't know that he also broke his foot, and now he has some pieces of bone floating around that have to get chased down and taken out. His surgery will run around $2,500.
Lark is relieved that she isn't the most expensive of the group. At a mere $800-1,000, she's almost cheap! But she needs surgery to fix a dislocated hip. She was used as a breeding machine and then dumped, and her hip was out long enough that it can't just be popped back into place. Ow!
All told, these babies mean Legacy is facing around $9,000 in surgery bills. That's a huuuuuge chunk of our budget, and we could really use some help. If you have even a few dollars to spare, please go to Legacy Boxer Rescue to donate. Every little bit helps! And if you don't have anything to spare, please at least send up some good thoughts and prayers for these 5 babies that their surgeries go well and they don't have any other problems! They really appreciate the support.

You can kind of see the stitches on her side. She also has two more sets on the other side, on her back leg. Poor thing. :\ Mom isn't letting her go on walks with us for a few days either, and Vivian doesn't like that at all!
Get well soon, Vivian!

Vivian is a beautiful 5-year-old boxer gal who is an absolute snugglebug. Seriously, she likes nothing better than to snuggle all the time, whether it's with Mom or me and Cinderella or random visitors. She loves to cuddle.
She also loves to play! We were all fast friends within about five minutes of her showing up at the house. She's never met a dog she doesn't love, and she's been around lots of dogs of different personalities. We play and play and play, then collapse and all snuggle together until we're ready to play play play some more.
Vivian's also good with the kitties that live here. She completely ignores them, which made Mom really happy. Oh, and she's what we call a "pocket boxer" -- she's a tiny little thing (about 40 pounds!) that would fit in your pocket. Everyone who meets her starts cooing "oh aren't you so cuuuuuute!" Yeah, yeah, yeah, we're all cute, we get it. It's hard having such admiring fans.
Vivian loves hanging out with us, but she told me that what she wants more than anything is a furever home with a mom or dad of her very own. Other dogs or on her own, with cats or kids or whatever -- she just wants to be loved! Go fill out an application at Legacy Boxer Rescue today and let them know you want VIVIAN to be your very own love-bug.

Alabama first came to our attention hear at LBR when she was a scared soon-to-be mama waiting in a shelter. She had a gorgeous litter of LBR puppies, the All-Stars!
Nowadays Bama and her brother Zeke keep their paws busy by helping their dad run Chez Grandjean, a very busy LBR hotel! They have all sorts of foster dogs there, some long-term and some babysitting. Phew, I'm tired just looking after one!
We're very happy to have Alabama join us here with her own fun perspective on LBR events. So everyone give her a great big Blogville welcome!
