An E-mail for Roxy

 I got a very important e-mail today.  
 I'm soooooooooooooooo excited.  It was from my brother and sister who have gone to live in Darwin--way up north.  They heard that I was adopted so they wanted to know all about me.
This is my sister Ruby.  We look a bit alike.
 And my brother Judge.  He did have an R name because we were the R litter.
 Here's a picture showing their differences in size.  Judge must have got more Rodesian Ridgeback genes.  He's much taller than Ruby or I.  She's built just like me. We're more bull terrier shaped.
(SHE says I have basset legs.)
 They were adopted when they were 4 months old and I was adopted a month or so later.
There were 12 in our litter, and 7 were surrendered to the high kill shelter where we were rescued by our Foster Mum, Lea.

I think all the others have found their forever homes except little Roo who's still waiting.

I'm going to write back and send them some pictures of me.
We have the same smiley faces. 

(Even Daisy and Bella don't know where their siblings are!)


  1. I think you all have adorable smiles!

    Tail Wuggles, Rubie

  2. 12 in a litter, that is a lot!
    So nice you can keep in touch with some of your sibblings.

  3. How nice was that! It is always good to be able to keep in touch with family. Ruby and Judge are very nice too - we are happy they have found good homes. We sure hope Roo does too.

  4. Good for you! I can tell you first hand that knowing where your dog-siblings are (and your human ones, too, for that matter!) is a good thing! Darby knows where her brothers Sammy and Buddy and her mother Bryn live and we hear from them often. Pumpkin is in touch with her brother Bailey who lives with my daughter. I feel like I am forgetting another connection... Anyway! How exciting that you heard from your sibs!

  5. Awww so cute that you can keep in touch with your sibs!

  6. Good heavens twelve puppies! That is so nice that you've heard from your brother and sister. The difference in leg length is quite interesting! I say go with bull terrier if that makes you happy! (Could be Corgi though!)

  7. Bella, we are happy to see your brother & sister are doing well. Love your smiles.
    Love Ruby & Penny

  8. Roxie... I am so very much glad that you are keeping in touch with your FURST Family.. BUTT I just can't help thinkin about how... my Furst Family keeps comin back to Haunt me like a Ghost.. You know HER .. Cussin Francine and now.. Cussin Ernestine. I hope you don't have any relatives like ... THAT lurkin in your Family Tree. Just sayin girrrrrl.
    Keep us posted on how they are doing. Hope Roo finds a home soon.

  9. Pawsome smile pic Ruby!!!! How wonderful to keep in touch with your siblings. Very different looking but that is NOT a bad thing. Easier to tell you apart... Oh yes, about your identify crisis? We think you M should look for at least 1 figurine that looks like you... You are so cute too! Thanks for visiting..

  10. It's so wonderful to reconnect with your siblings! I love seeing litters when everyone looks different! How fun!

  11. How great to connect with your siblings! Sure hope Roo finds a home!

  12. Wowee! How super neat! It's most obvious that good looks run in your family, Roxy. And GAWJUSS smiles!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  13. I agree, Roxy! I definitely think those are basset legs! But, there's nothing wrong with that!

  14. How lucky to get to know your litter mates!! (You have the best smile, though, Roxy!)

    -Bart and Ruby

  15. I love that you can have a connection with your roots!! Our only dog that has that is of course Todd, and I really enjoy hearing about how his siblings are and what mischief they are getting into.

  16. Aw how sweet! Family reunion!

  17. That's cool that you hear from your sibs. We Porties know where ours are because we all live here together and we see the two that moved out all the time. We feel bad for Roo. We hope he (she) gets a new home soon.

  18. It's so nice when families keep in touch. Roxy you are such a lucky girl, you have extended family, foster family and a real forever home family. Lucky You.
    Sweet William The Scot

  19. I agree. You have beautiful smiles. What a happy reunion

  20. You do all have the same smile - but other than that you don't look much alike to me.

    Nice to know that there's so many happy endings. Hope the last little one gets a good forever home too.

    Love and licks, Winnie

  21. That is way cool that you keep in touch with your sibs, Roxy!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  22. How exciting to have found some of your family. I hope little Roo finds a forever home soon.

    Thanks to all of you for the well wishes for my mom person. They helped her to feel lots better.

    Kisses to my Bella xoxo

    Nubbin wiggles,

  23. I'm so excited....I can comment again...woo hoo...I've been reading your post...love all of you...

  24. I just found out that there is a Valentines pawty in Blogville. Bella will you be my beautiful date??


  25. It's good to keep track of the family. What a smiley bunch. You should plan a reunion :D


  26. Awesome...love all u sweet pups xoxo You were the largest litter Id ever rehomed and the most gentle sweet natured bubbas ever!! Miss Roo is still here with us which we dont mind as she is just beautiful and her presence reminds me of all of you!!!
    Love Foster Mum Lea & Family (furred and unfurred )xoxox

  27. I am a complete orphan-no idea who my parents were or my siblings (if I had any). I was probably a product of a Mexican puppy mill and that was bad luck. The good luck is my adoption and life after that. I hope that Roo finds something wonderful soon.

  28. Everyone in your family Roxy is so cute! I can definitely see the family resemblence.....especially in your grreat smiles!

  29. Hi hi,

    Just wanna let you know that I've got an award for you guys. Please pick it up at http://bowiethesilky.blogspot.com/2012/01/one-lovely-blog-award.html

    Nice knowing your siblings, Roxy!


  30. Here's our solution to the identity crisis of the prior post: adopt Roo and even out the numbers.

    We're also refugees from high kill 'shelters' in N.C. and have no idea what happened to our litter mates or dog mamas. Hard to believe we've been with mama for 7 years now.
