Arranged Marriage and a Hop

I do believe that I am arranging a marriage for Dexter. He seems perfectly ok with this. Now, the lady in question is a little older (you cougar doggie you) and she is fixed, but Dex is going to get fixed too, so that is really no issue for us.

So, I present to you.....Rosie.

Rosie is a 7 year old doxie belonging to our neighbor a few streets over, whose name is Jane. Jane is also the aunt of a very close friend of mine, who will probably be moving into the house, and helping to take care of Rosie. Rosie is, how shall I put this delicately, a big girl. Not judging, at all, because, you know, us big girls got to stick together.Actually the plan is to try to slim Rosie down a little (same here sister), but regardless, I fell in love with her, and I do believe Dexter did as well.

Last night we walked over to meet Rosie, and to introduce Jane to Dexter. My friend and her boyfriend were there, so we let the dogs play outside for about an hour. They had a blast. I know it looks like Rosie is giving him the crazy eye in all the pictures, but trust me, she was loving it, her tail never stopped wagging.

I guess we will see if love blooms over the summer!

Rosie looks like such a sweet, sweet girl! We fostered a 129 pound Border COllie mix named Bill with, needless to say, a lot of extra love handles. He couldn't lay down comfortably because his legs wouldn't touch, his neck was out of alignment, and his hips were shot from the constant added pressure. It took several months of making him chase tennis balls up and down the hill all day to get him to a healthy 96 pounds, but he still needed a hip replacement.

After all that work, we adopted this amazing dog... but I suspect the weight is what cut his life short, weakening his organs. We think he was about 10 when he passed, but he had 5 years in top shape with us and we loved him so much for all the joy he brought to our lives.

Rosie is a lucky girl to have you. Best of luck with the new doggie relationship!

Major, I can not wait to learn more about you! I am glad we are new pals, so is my Mommy!

Rosie's mommy, Jane, is a wonderful mommy to her, but lately she has been feeling under the weather, so Jane's niece, Erin, who is a good friend of mine, is going to eventually move in to Jane's house and will be helping take care of Rosie. We are all excited about this new doggie friendship, our whole family fell in love with Rosie last night, she is all we can talk about today!
