BC: The Best Dog Ever!
FC: Roxie The Boxer
1: This book is dedicated to, not only man's best friend, but any dog lovers out there who have loved a pet as if they were a family member. That is how we felt about our Boxer dog, Roxie. The Best Dog EVER!
3: My husband, Bobby and I decided after a year of marriage, it was time to expand our family. NO, not with kids, we were looking for a puppy. Our neighbor got a 2 month old Boxer puppy that I fell in love with - he told me they had one female puppy left. Of course we rushed to get the dog that day! When we got to the Breeder's house, this poor little, pathetic looking female puppy was about two breaths away from dying. She was in bad shape. The Breeder gave her to us for FREE because he didn't think she was going to make it. We took her to the Vet, got her fixed up and named her Roxie. From that moment on, she was more like my first born child than a dog. In the following pages, you will see why. . .

17: Oh no, Roxie, don't eat the dice!

20: It's nice to know that you have your priorites straight ~ taking time out of your busy schedule of dressing up and playing games like "Jenga" to read the Bible!

23: Roxie, You were the best dog anyone could ever have. You brought our family many days of joy and gave us great memories. I hope that the animated movie "All Dogs Go To Heaven" is correct, I would love to see you again some day! We loved you and we're heartbroken when your life was taken way too short by cancer! Love, The Mauers
