Hear Roxie Speak
Hi, my name is Roxanna Lee, but I'm better known as Roxie. I was 5 months old when Zepp© walked into my life in November of '96. And I've been sitting in his lap ever since. I knew from the second I saw him, that he and I were destined to be together. He calls me his "Little Angel" yet I can get away with whatever I want to - but I don't. I am very very well behaved. In the summer of '98 I started sitting in his lap at the supper table. I don't beg or reach for food either. I'm just happy to be in his lap. I also sleep on his pillow at night.
I'm a very playful 5-pound ball of fur. I'll play at the drop of your hand even when coming out of a deep sleep. Another little funny habit I have is biting at Zepp©'s feet as he enters the shower in the master bath. I just don't want to be away from him. As he showers, I go lie down on the bed and wait for his return. As soon as I see he is finished, I kick my feet on the bed to get his attention. Works every time (hehehe). I also bite at his feet every time he leaves the house. I bark, begging him to stay. It's very hard to be away from him. Usually every night in the winter I get to go along to Starbucks. Zepp© has told me that when I don't go, the employee's ask where I am. I think I am liked by all. And I like all people too. Except for tiny kids that move too fast around me. One night I was at the bookstore with Zepp© and a small kid was running and yelling in the aisle. I started growling and barking. Zepp© silenced me quickly. The man at the checkout said I was better behaved than most kids in the store. I am welcome back there at any time.
I really like living here. I have a big sister and big brother to play with. Boy do we ever play. They gang up on me but I can hold my own. Zepp© usually steps in before I open up a can of WHOOP ASS on them. Lucky them.! I am very jealous of Nikki though if my dad pets her, I bite at her to run her off. I don't bite at the "DUDE" too much though. Sometimes he loses it and starts to go postal. But he's still my "Bud".
If I am outside and let in the house and Zepp© is not in my site, I run from room to room in a panic looking for him. Sometimes he hides on purpose just to see what I do. It's kind of mean but I am so happy upon finding him that it doesn't matter.
I love chewing on rawhide bones and playing with my toys. I even play sock tug-of-war with Nikki. One of these days we're going to get away with a tug-of-war with Redd's panties. We've only been caught to date. We give it a try every time Zepp© and Redd are on the bed making funny noises. I think Redd has gotten smart now and keeps them away from us :(. I guess my favorite toy is my little yellow rubber ducky. I like tennis balls too, but they are too big for me to grab in my mouth.
I was told that Zepp© and Redd got me to fill the void that "Ginny" left. Little did they know that I was Heaven sent from her. I can only hope I have helped fill the emptiness she left behind.
Zepp©'s Note: Little does Roxie know that she has filled the empty spot that Ginger left behind. She is her own dog and just as much a part of the family as "Ginny" was. She is just as special in every way. So loyal and trusting. She is truly an angel.
