Roxie

I promised a post in memory of Roxie when we lost her two weeks ago.  She was a cute pup, a mutt, an alert interested explorer, and a very friendly dog.  With her heavy coat of fur, she especially loved winter.  Sometimes I thought she was part Husky sled dog!

Loving the snow! 

The first time we saw her. 

With mom and her brothers and sisters - some strange colour combinations!
Dad was a big dark coloured mutt too. 

Coming home with us.

The first few months. 
Her colour changed from gray to brown to gray again over 7 years.

Age 1, more fun in the snow.  

Earlier this winter.

Our last picture of Roxie.  Many happy memories! 

P.S.  The big dark critter yesterday was just a black boulder.

  1. I am really sorry for your loss of Roxie. Having been there a couple of months ago of loosing a dog I know it is so hard. The mother of Roxie really looks like a tan colored border collie, like our male border collie.

  20. What a cutie! We had to put our beloved dog Bear down last spring and I know how hard it is to lose a special dog. Take comfort that you gave her a wonderful life and she was loved.
