Momma played a trick on me yesterday! She left in the morning to go see Grandpa for Father's Day. A few hours later, I heard her come home. I was SO excited! But then...

" is not Momma!!"

That's right, an IMPOSTER MOMMA showed up!! Can you believes it?! It was such a betrayal. But after a moment, I realized something impawtant. 

"Oh! Is not an imposter Momma, is an AUNTIE!"

PHEW! It wasn't an impawster after all. It was just Auntie, coming to visit me because she missed me SO much and stuff. I was glad she came, because Momma came home really late and I would've had to potty something fierce. Funny how Auntie knew JUST when I needed her! We needed some time to hang out, just us.

Nature Friday

Happy Friday, efurrybody! Since it's Nature Friday, I thought I'd share a few nature pictures from Momma's vacation thingy last week. She drove up through a place called Yellowstone. I asked her if there were lots of doggies there to pee on all the stones, but apparently that's not where it got its name. False advertising!!!

But there WAS one doggy Momma met. This is Sammy. He's 12 years old and on a bucket list trip with his pawrents. Momma said since he was a celebrity, she had to take his picture.

She met him while she was waiting to see Old Faithful -- who apparently is ALSO not a dog. Everyone knows when you say faithful, you mean a dog!! Sheesh, people!! This is the silly thing Momma says they called Old Faithful instead.

A dog would've been better. Just saying. Anyway, here's one last picture, just 'cause it's Momma's favorite out of the ones she took.

Happy Nature Friday!!

Helllllllo, furiends! I'm BACK! Yup, Momma went to that "vacation" place, which I'm sure was totally boring, and I got to have SO much fun with my dogsitter Cheyenne! She's lots of fun and gives great scritches, plus she has a MUCH more liberal hand with the treats than Momma. Just saying. I've missed you guys and hope I didn't miss out on any big news in your life. Cheyenne is pawesome, but she's not great with figuring out blogs.

Oh hey, guess what I got to do last night? Momma set up a whole assembly line on the counter for me! There were English muffins and slices of cheese, all just SITTING there while Momma sat in the living room eating dinner. I couldn't let such generosity be ignored, so I put my paws up on the counter and started helping myself. Then when Momma saw me enjoying what she set out, we played the cheering game. You know, "MATILDA!! I can't believe you!!" I know, I can't believe how delicate I was either! I lifted the cheese slices right off the English muffins! I got two slices of cheese AND half an English muffin. Then Momma wasted the rest making breakfast sandwiches. What a fun game!

Rescue Strong!

Today is an extremely impawtant day for the good folks of Legacy Boxer Rescue. I've told you the story before of the people who are suing LBR and one of our adopters for a dog they claim is theirs, even after it went through the full shelter hold and several months of waiting before being adopted out. The ramifications of this case could have a horrible effect on shelters and rescues across the state, as shelters would be told basically they could euthanize dogs with no legal issues but could be sued if they adopt one out! Many fine supporters have been helping LBR through this process, including our top dog pro bono legal team. Today is the day!! The hearing is being held this morning in Fort Worth, and we are all crossing our paws and hoping for the best.

Boxer Strong! Legacy Strong! Rescue Strong!

Edit: OMD! And did you know that today is National Rescue Dog Day?? Surely that's a sign we'll win!!!

Pupdate: The hearing is finished. LBR supporters packed the house! The judge will issue a ruling within two weeks. Keep those paws crossed!!

Wear orange for Crockett!

Today we are wearing orange to remember our good furiend Crockett of the Lone Star Cats, who was lost in a tragic accident this week. I let Momma join in too!

Edit: ....Well, this was supposed to go out tomorrow, but Momma messed up the scheduling. Sigh. Good help is so hard to find! I guess we're just starting out early.

Flashback Friday

Tomorrow we wear orange for Crockett! I thought we'd flash back to Momma's favorite picture ever, with lots of orange.

I sure wish I'd known Angel Casey and Angel Cinderella. they look like lots of fun!

Remembering our furiend

We were so sad to hear about the tragic accident that took the life of our furiend Crockett of the Lone Star Cats this weekend. We are sending his momma and siblings lots of love and boxer kisses.

Complete at last!

Hey there, folks! Thanks for your well-wishes for my momma. She's FINALLY feeling better, but she really got knocked down hard for a while. I was super busy with my nursing duties. I'm glad to finally get back to blogging! And look what I have to share now that I'm back?

What's this? ...Yes, Momma, I'm sure everyone will ignore the weeding you haven't done.

We had a bit of a snafu when Momma went to order Pigeon's memorial stone. The Etsy shop where we ordered all four other stones no longer does custom engraving! Okay, fine, we can handle that... except apparently the color we used is not common. Other stores' stones are grayish or brownish, not reddish. So Momma finally found one shop that had some other stones close to the right color, emailed them a picture of our other four stones, and begged them to find something as close as possible. I think they did pretty good!

It comforts both of us to see all the stones together in our new memorial garden. Now if Momma will just get some of her weeding done, it'll be pawfect!

Nursing work is ruff!

Sorry we've been out of touch lately, but  I've been hard at work nursing Momma through the sickies. She has some kind of a virus that came with a vicious headache, so she hasn't been able to focus on much, and I've been guarding her through her naps.

She's starting to feel better, though. I'm glad, 'cause I'm getting WORN OUT!!

Flower Friday

I don't know if we're officially back on Flower Friday or if it's still Nature Friday, but either way, here's my beeYOUtiful self with some of the roses in our Memorial Garden in the backyard. They got a little beaten down by the rains lately, but they're still lovely!

Boring bed

Momma said that she wanted to prove that her bed doesn't normally look "like a disaster area." So here I am, posing on the BORING normal bed.

Yesterday, Momma had just made the bed to look like this, and then she went into the bathroom to get ready for work. She heard me zipping around with a serious case of the zoomies, but she didn't worry because she didn't hear the telltale signs of me ripping up her stupid pillows the pillow monsters spontaneously exploding again. Boy was she surprised when she came out to see what I'd done to her boring ol' bed!!

SO much more interesting that way! BOL!!

Hoppy Easter!

A very hoppy Easter to all of my furiends! Now...where can I find that bunny I keep hearing about?!

Easter outtakes!

Momma says that today is Good Friday. It is a VERY good Friday, because Momma is off work and home with ME!! But she says that it also means Easter is this weekend.  So I had to pose with some stupid-looking ears? What the woof, Momma?!

 Momma, you gots defective ears. They won't stay on my head!

Oh, I's so ashamed...

Nope, not looking at you with these dumb things on.

 I'm just going to pretend none of this is happening...

Did I eventually let her get a good shot? Well....I guess we'll see on Easter Sunday! BOL! Enjoy the howliday, everyone.

Thankful Thursday

Our angels are thankful to have Pigeon with them, because the roses in our memorial garden have suddenly burst into bloom! We're hoping to have her stone to add there soon.

Momma is also thankful the roses are still okay. We were predicted a really nasty storm with hail yesterday, but all we got was heavy rain. Hooray for our flowers and our roof!

Pigeon is home

Pigeon is home and ready to rest at last. We got her corrected nameplate for her box, and now she has joined our other angels.

Momma painted everyone at different times through painting classes where they sketch your photo on the canvas and then you paint it. One by one, everyone's box and different mementos have joined their pawtraits. Momma put Pigeon's picture right next to Jessie's, because they were besties.

 I like being able to see all the angels who've come before me. Though they're gone in body, I know they're watching over us in spirit!

I don't remember giving permission for anyone to use me in a comic strip...

Pigeon is home, but frustrations!

Well, furiends, yesterday my sweet angel sissy Pigeon came home to us.

Her box is beautiful -- but it's missing something! When we picked it up, the plaque with her name on it was MISSPELLED!! Momma was so mad. The vet took the wrong plaque off and said they'll send us the corrected one to put on later. So she's still home, but it's frustrating. Also, Momma went to order Pigeon's memorial stone, to go with the others in our memorial garden.

Turns out the place that we ordered all the others from has gone out of business! We looked and looked to find similar stones, but apparently not many places do the reddish stones. So Momma ordered from someone with the closest she could find, sent them this picture, and asked them to please try to get as close as possible. Poor Pigeon, nothing's going right!

I'd also like to bow my head and remember my great-sister, Angel Jessie. She died one year ago today, kicking off what Momma called the "year from hell." I'm trying really hard to make sure that this year is better for Momma! But thank you for being such a good puppy to her, Angel Jessie. Momma misses you very much, but she's happy to think that you and Pigeon are snuggling and playing together up on the Bridge right now.

Reunited at the Bridge
