This time last year, I had seen her on Milo's website and was waffling about bringing another dog into my life so soon after saying goodbye to my other dog less than a month earlier. I'm here to tell you that that trip to Milo and bringing home Roxy was the BEST impulsive move I've ever made!!!
She has brought so much joy to my home. She has changed so much from the frightened, skittish dog that I picked up last year. She's SOOOOO affectionate, loving everyone we see walking by (both 2 legged and 4 legged). She goes to Camp K-9 weekly to play with other dogs off leash and has graced their Instagram page multiple of times (She has shown NO aggressive tendencies at all!) She has secured herself a permanent place on the couch, she has multiple beds around the house and we've learned that she LOVES soft things...she often cuddles into blankets or her sleeping bag (just like Linus with his blanket) I'd like to say her favorite part of the day is her walks...we do 3 walks a day, 2 miles each. When we take her off leash (in a fenced in area) her favorite thing to do is play chase with my husband; she is in such phenomenal shape, it is he who is panting by the end of the chase-session! My iphone is filled with pictures of her; actually a poster of her is about to adorn the wall in Pet Food Express here in Mill Valley. I filled out a form and explained what her life had been prior to me and they requested that I arrange to have Baboo professionally photographed and they will make a poster of her for all to see, while promoting rescue foundations. I could go on and on and on, but I think you get the idea...I haven't been this happy in years! Baboo has brought both my husband and I closer (I think we appreciate the other on a higher level when we see the other give love and interact with Baboo). I try not to think of how many years (8 YEARS at the sanctuary) she was without love and a home, my husband reminds me to focus on the future and also reminds me that Milo kept her alive, so thank you for taking care of her while she resided in the Richmond facility. And a bigger thanks for realizing I was her forever home and allowing me to take her home with me!
