Happy Birthday Roxie!!

 Happy 45th Birthday to the best dog any family could ever ask for!  That's 8 in human years :)

Roxie Louise (aka Lou Lou) is very protective, obedient, smart and sweet.  She has the most ferocious bark but is scared of her own shadow!  I don't think she knows she is a dog.

She especially loves to nap, swim, go for walks and chase balls.  She knows numerous tricks including shake, sit, lay down, sing, speak and wait.  She used to jump and roll over but unfotunately she now experiences pain in her back left leg.  Honestly I was fearful of how she would act when our kiddos came along. I should have known that she would be wonderful with them. She lets them pull on her ears and tail all they want. She lets them tackle her and dress her up. She is so patient and selfless, especially with them!

She is definitely part of the family and we're hoping for at least 8 more years with her :)
