“It wasn’t me. I didn’t do it.”

“It wasn’t me.  I didn’t do it.”  That’s what Roxie is trying to make me believe.  She has discovered that toilet paper on the roll is a SUPER fun toy to play with!  Is the look on her face not priceless though?  I just had to get a picture.

Many of you have asked me how Roxie, the rat poison eating puppy, is doing.  As you can see, she’s is doing great…. well, except for the toilet paper issue.  The horrible rat poison incident is behind us now (whew) and she is growing so fast!  When we brought her home 4 1/2 months ago she fit into the palm of my hand!  We also thought when we brought her home she was a golden retriever because both the momma and daddy were golden retrievers.  Hmmm, seems Momma found herself a new stud in the neighborhood in the form of a cocker spaniel!  LOL  That’s cool with us!  Mutts are the best dogs anyway!

Roxie has really been a very good dog!  She now uses the doggie door so house training is done (YAY!  Now I can get my carpets cleaned!)  We used to kennel her when we would leave the house but she now gets to roam the house with the other 2 dogs.  She loves that!  She is a SNUGGLER and has to sleep in our bed every night (once she learned how to jump up on the bed, there was no getting her down).  The only other big issue that we’re dealing with is SOCKS.  Oh my gosh, Roxie LOVES socks!  Luckily she doesn’t chew them up (in fact she rarely chews up anything) but she just has to grab a sock and run and hide.  She just kind of plays with them and we find them all over the house.  Silly dog!

    Darling picture!
    Be careful with the socks issue. I know of a couple of dogs who have ended up emergency surgery to remove a sock or part of a sock.

  2. Nothing funnier than dog-shaming, LOL!!! We had a cat that used to grab the TP and run through the house with it. I don’t know how she did that without it breaking but she did a pretty good job of papering the downstairs.

      Celia, I know what you mean! How do they DO that? It’s so funny when she does it I don’t have the heart to scold her for it. 🙂

    Oh the look on her face is so cute. I’ve looked at the picture and its very clear that something is wrong with her eye I think called cherry eye. Please check with your vet.

    • Connie says:

      Susan, it is indeed cherry eye. 🙁 She will be going in to be spayed in a few weeks and the vet will take care of it during her surgery. I hate how it looks but it doesn’t seem to bother her. We have seen methods to “pushing” it back under the eye but no luck.

    Holy moley that pup has grown. she is adorable though. She certainly does remind me of Annie, who by the way I have always wondered if there was some Cocker in. How is Miss Annie? And does Buddy like Roxie any better these days?

  5. Connie says:

    Hey Brenda! She has grown! She is level with Buddy now. Buddy TOLERATES Roxie. Every once in awhile I catch them playing in the backyard but most of the time he just barks at her every time she comes near him. Annie is…. well, age is catching up with her. It’s so sad. I can see that her joints hurt when she lays down because she whines a little. It breaks my heart because she was such a vibrant dog. She is 16 years old though so now we just call her our crabby old girl.

    She is such a cutie! I’m glad she has a family who loves her so much.
    I love your card tutorials…keep’em coming.

    Oh, the joys of having a puppy. You get spoiled when you can leave your dog home alone and still have a perfect house when you return, but you can’t beat those smelly coffee kisses.

  8. Michele says:

    She is adorable! That sweet innocent face!

    • Connie says:

      Innocent???? ROTFL!!!!!!! She is adorable though. She sure can “play” innocent well but we know she has a naughty side to her. As you can tell, we love her no matter what!

    Roxie is adorable. I have a 3 yr. old Cocker Spaniel named Sadie and she is a hoot. Roxie is and will continue to entertain you so much as all puppies do. 🙂

    Love those pictures. I pinned them on my board Cute Animals. Did you pin them on yours? Makes me want a puppy when I have a policy against anything you have to feed or water!

    Hi Connie:
    I have a 12 yr.old yellow lab who takes Metacam (liquid) for her arthritic back legs – she also has a problem sitting down. Within 2 hours of her first dose of this med she was acting like a new dog – wanting to play Frisbe – etc. Only problem I can see is that your Vet has to do alot of blood work checks to be sure that this NSAID is not compromising the dogs liver. We also have a Silver lab and both dogs sleep on our bed….not much room left for my husband and myself! We love our dogs !!!

    Love it! She is adorable. 🙂

    My son had two cats that lived with us. They used to like to drag my panty hose all over the house. It was especially interesting when Sparky did it in the middle of my card club. The girls really got a hoot out of that. Roxie is adorable tho. How can you be mad at the beautiful face?! We love our animals!!!

  14. Betty Hondronastas says:

    I love the pics. What a cutie!

  15. AnnMarie says:

    Awwww! I mean awwwwww!! What a sweet little face!!! 🙂

  16. Roxie is adorable! My dog Wolfie is my 4 legged child since my 2 2 legged children are grown and on their own! Wolfie thinks sunnystamping is HIS stamp camp, he starts looking out the window and whining 1 hour before stamp camp! I love our 4 legged children!

  17. Roxie is absolutely priceless! Seems like she has a great game going on there- she rips the tp and you clean it up! We sure do love our pets don’t we?!!

    • Connie says:

      Yeah… great game. NOT! lol I will say, it’s worth cleaning up a little torn up toilet paper for the joy she’s brought into our lives. She’s just too darn fun to have around!

  18. Vicky Holmes says:

    What fun!, Love the pictures! My previous dog liked TP, to where he would grab the dangling end then run with it, & took it all over the house! Luckily, Buddy, my 9 month old puppy, Buddy, has limited it to tissue paper 🙂
    They are so precious!!
