We have a confession.....

 You know last Saturday when I went to the 'The Dish'?  Well, I went to meet Roxy.
 One of the dogs we featured  in our 'Rescue Me' post.
 We'd been looking for another dog to join the pack for ages...a miniature Bull Terrier. BUT we were aware of dogs who need homes.  Every time we looked at pups, Roxy was there looking back at us. We'd been looking at her for a few months and we decided to offer her a home.

We started negotiations about two weeks ago--before Kendra became unwell.
We drove for 2 hours south and Roxy and her Foster Mum drove 2 hours north and we met  in a park.
 Roxy came home with us for a two week trial.
 Mayzie , Lily and Benny sort of worked it out in our Wordless Wednesday post. Roxy was already here before our 'Rescue Me' post.  I suppose we kind of cheated; but her sister Roo is still available.....

Kendra on a slow walk in the front garden.
Kendra Update:  This morning Kendra came to the front gate ready for the early morning walk.  She can't go on our long, fast walks, so she was allowed to walk in the front garden where she immediately found the skeletal remains of a bird that SHE'd forgotten about and nearly had an extra snack!


  1. Kendra - Slow walks are the best . Here's to many of them !

  2. Congratulations on adopting Roxy. She is adorable.
    Welcome home Roxy.
    Love Ruby & Penny
    Pees - Kendra we are happy you are feeling good today and found a skeleton surprise.

  3. Wow, congrats to you and welcome to Roxy - what a wonderful family for you!

    Woos~ Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  4. Congratulations! We hope Roxy fits in just fine with your pack!
    We are so happy that you're feeling better, Kendra. Enjoy your birdie treat!

    Love ya ots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  5. This is all excellent news. And at least you won't need to go to the effort of explaining which one is Roxy in future team photos!
    Toodle pip!

  6. What great news! Congratulations to all of you!

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  7. Poor Roxy will always be the odd one out. You girls be nice to her! Congratulations on the new addition and we hope everything goes smoothly during the trial. Bless you Kendra!

  8. WELCOME TO BLOGVILLE ROXY!!! You are gonna have a BLAST here. Congratulations on finding a furever home.

    I am glad that Kendra is feeling like taking a walk.. Short and Slow... sounds PERFECT to me.. Being a Dachshund and all..


    ARRRooooOOOOOoooooOOOOOOOOOOddles to Roxy!

    And LOVE to Kendra.

    Whew. Glad that's done. We can get on about Our day. Now that things are good Downunder.

    Thanks for the great news.

    Roo, Your Pal, Stu

  10. Roxy will be a nice addition to the pack.
    Hugs to Kendra.

  11. Peeps forget that there are all kinds of dogs available for rescue. I know from personal experience since I am a rescue. He wanted a Westie, Scottie or Cairn and gender, age and other stuff was immaterial-the only important thing was that the animal needed a terrier home. Terriers belong with terrier peeps. I was the first one He saw and that was 9 years ago.

  12. Congratulations on Roxy! I think she's gonna love it at your house :) We are so happy to see Kendra out for a walk. Yay Kendra!

  13. Welcome home Roxy!!!

    And Kendra, is there any other kind of walking besides nose to the ground reading pee mail slow?


  14. Awesome news about Roxy joining your family - congratulations!

  15. Wow, that is crazy and wonderful!


  16. So glad to see Kendra back on her feet. Sometimes it's a "ruff" road we all walk and it's best we take it slowly. Tell Roxy welcome from a fellow Scotsman. Hope all will be warm sunshine and cool shade for the four of you!

  17. Ohmidogness! Ohmidogness! Ohmidogness! I LUVS that Roxy came home to lives with you! Wowee! Yay for Roxy! Gosh, she just landed in the lap of luxury and I'm pretty sure that her big sisters are gonna show her the ropes AND keep her in line. Heehee! Thank you, thank you for adopting her.

    And Kendra, I'm glad you're going on your slow walkies. My mom always says "slow and steady wins the race." Of course, I don't listen to her but that's what she always says.

    Wiggles & Wags,

  18. Well you cheeky sneeky little rascals. Congratulations on your new addition. Roxy looks beautiful and looks like she has settled in with all of you. We are so happy for you and for Roxy to have such a loving family. Good on you all!! No worries, and extra love, Stella and Rory
