Happy Decade, LBR!!



Today is the 10th birthday of the fangtastic Legacy Boxer Rescue, the rescue that saved me, my sissy Cinderella, and over 2500 other boxers in the North Texas area over the past decade. WOW!! Can you believe it??


I can never thank LBR enough for all they did to save me from a hot, miserable death as I languished outside in a Texas summer, sick and unloved. You can read my whole rescue story here.


My sissy Cinderella was in just as bad shape. She was saved from a shelter just after having puppies, sick with heartworms and losing most of her fur. Read about her condition here.


So many other boxers owe their lives to LBR.Take a look back at some of our pups we've featured here on the Chronicles, like the Spice Pups, Patches, the Parvo Princesses, Obie and Pancake, Napoli, Falkor, Calypso, Gummi Bear, Nala and Bruno, Baby Austin, Coco, Wall-E and Marty, Homer, Lucca, Charity, Roarke, Alouette, Mercy, and all my foster siblings!

Momma, Cinderella, and I just can't express how proud we are to be part of this organization. Today LBR is running a massive Facebook event, so be sure to check out all of our posts and activities there! We're also running a fundraising event for our birthday. We're asking all our fans to donate just $10. That's not much for just one person, but if all our fans contribute, that's a HUGE amount to help the dogs! Our goal is to raise $10,000 in one day. Please go here to donate to LBR! (Or just Paypal your donations to info at savetheboxers dot com!)  Edit: We have a special birthday donation link set up!


The Legacy Chronicles is having our own event today too! For every comment left on today's post (as of 8pm Central time tonight), Momma is going to donate $1 to LBR's birthday fund. And every commenter will be entered into a fangtastic prize drawing. I'll announce the winner on tomorrow's post! So please comment, and please visit LBR's Facebook page to wish us a happy birthday.

Here's to 10 more years of saving boxers!!!
