(#76) Seven Years of Loving Who, Where, and What

“How old is she?” one of the humans asked Steve.

“She’ll be 7 years old next week. That’s middle age! And she has silver hair under her nose. Just like her person.” Steve rubbed my snout and laughed.


So, based on what I’m hearing, I guess there will be a little surprise pup party in my near future. Past years, I’d spend the day at my favorite yellow building. Ms. Erin makes me a treat with a number on it, dresses me in a hat, takes photos, and then I share my treat with my pup friends. Pretty wonderful way to celebrate. Here is a photo from a dog year or two ago:

Taken a few biscuits ago by Erin. Hoping one with a “7” on it is in my future.

A lot has happened in these 7 years. From Hoppi and Steve bringing me home to working as part of a pet therapy team to healing my hurt leg and belly to my morning walks on the sand to watching the sun rise over the water. And so much more. The friends I’ve made. The belly rubs I have received. The biscuits I’ve eaten. (OK, gobbled!) And the evening couch time.

Puppy Obedience Class. I was a mere babe! Notice I was already learning how to show my tongue.
When we graduated from Ms. Stacy’s class! Steve and I have done a lot together. And have had wonderful mentors along the way.

Life has been good to me. Humans have been kind. Love plentiful. And my purpose to connect with people has grown.

I love who I live with, where I live, and what I get to do.

What else can a pup ask for?

I am grateful.

Until next time…. WOOF!


Thanks for coming back to my blog. You make me happier than biscuits!

My book, Roxie Looks for Purpose Beyond the Biscuit, is still available. I share stories and lessons about friends, family, and fun. And I speak about purpose as well. (Steve says for dogs we might just want to call it “furpose.” He makes words up, I think.) The book holds a biscuit or two for you or for a friend!
