Last Sunday morning, this sweet baby came to my backdoor. She was as skinny as a rail, withing her backbone, hipbones, and ribs easily visible. She scarfed down a bowl of cat food before I gave her some scrambled eggs. We tried to coax her into the house but wouldn't come in until she saw my son. She then became so excited that she couldn't contain herself and went right in! On Monday, I checked with the Humane Society to see if anyone had reported her missing. Noone had but they came and took her in anyway. They said that I can have her back, legally, if she is not claimed in 7 days. We are counting the days. My entire family fell instantly in love! I've never had a boxer before; we lost our 15-year-old Chow in Feb. 2007. I've been devouring the information on this website to prepare for our Rosie's homecoming!

Yes, that's her in the sig! Some people might think it's crazy since I don't even know if I'll get back. But I think she is a gift from God! I've been trying for some time to convince my husband to get another dog but he hasn't wanted to. However, when this little girl came to our door, his heart melted. He is ready to have her back too.

Actually her ears are natural. I guess it's hard to tell in the pictures. The Humane Society folks haven't told me they detected a chip but I don't know if they would tell me anything until the 7 days pass. Until then, I can only hope.
