Roxanne and me

Don't you just hate it when you get those ice balls between your toes?   I can't even put down my foot.  That is how I tell when it is time to go inside and lay in the sun in the front porch. 

We worked with Roxanne to get some good photos to put up on the Golden Retriever Rescue web site, along with her bio.   Roxanne does not like to pose very well, she just wants to relax after being lost in the park for 11 days, alone.    She has become Velcro Dog, she refuses to leave the side of any available human.   It is hard to take a photo of your own shadow.   We will keep trying, but we will share some of today's photos with you.    Roxanne has a habit of eating snow, constantly.  She probably learned to eat snow to stay alive when she was lost, that is why she always seems to have snow on her nose.    Below, Roxanne investigates the hole in the ice on the Koi pond where the pump keeps the water moving so it won't freeze over.

  3. Roxanne is very beautiful and once she gets settled in will make a wonderful dog for someone.

    Good luck, Roxanne!


  4. She's a beauty! (And yes, we hate it, too, when we get ice balls in our feet. Mom brings us inside and we spend the next 30 minutes licking them out!)

  9. Hi Mogley! I'm catching up on your blog and have enjoyed seeing Roxanne--She's lovely and I'm sure she'll realize soon enough that she doesn't need snow as a food source! :-) Hope you're doing well!!

  10. So very beautiful!

  11. She sure is beautiful :)


  12. When I get snow balls in my feet, I do the think like the Lion with the thorn in his paw. The humans immediately come to my aid. They are so easy!! Give our love to Roxanne please :)

  13. Spray a little non-stick cooking spray like Pam on those paws, and no ice balls. Old trick from our humans.

  14. We called in to say hello and meet you. we saw you on Barbara's blog.

    Ha ha..we were going to tell you about the cooking/vegetable oil but The Thundering Herd pawed us to it!

    Roxanne is gorgeous we hope she soon has her forever home.
