LBR foster Flo has finally found her boxer spirit again! She was a little sad when she first came to her foster home, but then she found a yellow tennis ball under the couch and remembered she was a boxer after all. Yay, Flo! I hope you find your family soon.

Alouette and her babies

Anyone remember Alouette and her babies? She's a new LBR foster dog who found comfort in a little pink baby dog toy. She carries it everywhere, bathes it, and sleeps with it. Her foster mom was telling everyone how much she loves it, and how she's afraid how Alouette would react if one of the other dogs got hold of it and destroyed it.

So what did the awesome LBR volunteers do?

Yup, they raided every Petsmart in the area and bought Alouette as many pink babies as we could find! Some of the awesome Petsmart employees were helping us dig through clearance bins and even getting forklifts out to get into the way up high stuff.

Alouette says "Thank you, LBR! I love all my babies!"

Man oh man, am I tired! I'm glad I get a nice, long nap while Mom goes to work, because I could use it. Wonder why I'm so tired? Well, blame THIS!

Oh sure, she looks cute and innocent. But she's got energy! She's really giving me some good cardio, that's for sure. This is Briar Rose. She was my foster sister a long time ago, before Cinderella came to live with us. We thought she'd found her forever home, but then her dad lost his job and had to send her back to us. He was a runner, and they'd go running a couple of miles every single day. Now Rosie has me running that in laps around the house and the backyard! She's fun to play with, but I've got to teach her the fine art of resting. :)

It's raining!

Boy, the humans are sure excited about water falling out of the sky. Sheesh. But I admit, it does make things a lot cooler, and it's been a LONG time since we've had any. But whenever it rains, my mom makes us suffer indignities like this:

Save me.

It sure is quiet around our house today. Do you know why? Because my foster sister Vivian went and got herself adopted yesterday! She seems really happy with her new dad, and I know he's going to spoil her like crazy. We miss her a whole lot, though. Mom said she cried the whole drive home after dropping Vivian off yesterday.

Congratulations, Vivian! I hope you're very, very happy in your new furever home!

LBR is in desperate need of foster homes! If you're in the Dallas/Ft.Worth Metroplex, please consider fostering. LBR will provide all vet care, food, crates -- you just provide the love! Please go to for more information.
I don't know about where you are, but it's sure been HOT in Texas lately. We're in the middle of a long string of 100-degree days, and yesterday was 110! And that was the day my mom's air conditioner died, of course. She was really worried about how my sisters and I would handle it. We ended up having to go to Aunt Diana's for a little while to watch TV with her in the AC while Mom sweated and waited on the repairman. Remember, dogs want a cool place to stay in weather like that as much as a human does. Especially if they're short-snouted breeds like boxers, since we have a lot of trouble breathing when it gets hot.
