I should tell you some more about Roxy's family.  It consists of Roxy, Lucky, Mom, Dad and the Boy.  The Mom is Millie's Mom's sister, so Roxy and Lucky are Millie's fur cousins.  Shortly after Lucky was rescued and became part of the family, she made friends with Muffie, but she was too active for Muffie, who was an old dog by this time, to play with much.  It was decided that Lucky needed a playmate and it just so happened that the Mom's favorite pug breeder had a dog who was due to have puppies soon.  All the puppies were very cute and they were having a hard time deciding whether to get another fawn pug, like Lucky, or a black one.  The second picture shows what Roxy did to help them decide.  If that picture doesn't say, "I'm all yours.  Take me home," nothing does. Roxy and Lucky were acclimatized to each other before Roxy even came home.  They had play dates at the breeder's and Lucky loved them.  Roxy also quickly made friends with Muffie and Muffie loved to watch the two puppies play.

Roxy is nicknamed The Devil Dog.  How did she get such a name?  Roxy loves to get into mischief.  She will dump the trash and pick out tissues and then shred them and spread the pieces all over the house.  She has been known to leave her "business" in front of the shower door, where Mom is sure to step in it.  Roxy loves to look out of the window and has decided that the best place to do this in on top of the kitchen table.  She has no trouble at all jumping from the floor to a chair and then up on the table.  The problem is that once she has finished looking, she can't figure out how to get down again.  She whines until someone comes by to lift her down to the floor.  The top picture shows Roxy up on the kitchen table with the window she likes to look out of behind her.

                                         Roxy likes to jump on the table.
                                         There to look out the window she's able.
                                                     She can't get back down
                                                     And this makes her frown,
                                        So she whines until someone lifts her off the table.
