Been awhile...

Well alot has happened since last time I posted on Zoe and Ariel's blog. We have had a tough year. We unfortunately lost Ariel on June 23rd to kidney failure. She was only 2 1/2 yrs old. She didnt suffer and was playing up until her last day. She was my angel, my friend, my baby girl and she was taken from me way to soon. She was the happiest dog I have ever had...she didn't know she was sick...all she knew was that she was loved.

Zoe lost her best friend that day and was extremely depressed. She didn't understand why Ariel was there anymore and would look for her when I came home from work. It was heartbreaking.

So a week later we decided to adopt another boxer from Adoptaboxerrescue.com. We choose Abby a one year old flashy fawn female that was surrendered to the rescue in Connecticut. The reason given was that her owner's house was being foreclosed on and she had to give her up.

Anyways, we drove 2 hours to NYC to meet the rescue volunteer and pick up Abby. She was so cute...and skinny when we got here. We had some trying times with her...she wasn't house trained and Zoe did not take to her right away.

So fast forward 6 months later and they are now best friends, spoiled rotten, and just happy boxers.

So looking back at 2007... it was filled with heartbreak and joy.

Now we are on to 2008...hopefully nothing but joy this year.
