Roxie is the puppy that CJ found at the dumpster while Terry and I were on our 2 week trip. She looks to be a Golden Lab, or maybe a shorter haired Golden Retriever type dog. She has all those whimsical retriever characteristics, like piling her toys and using her very soft mouth to hold your hand. She also talks with her mouth full. Anyway, when CJ moved in with The Navy Dude, he took her with him. *sigh* I was sad to see her go, but happy that she now has many acres to ramble, and a creek to play in.
However, The Navy Dude (TND) has this Jack Russell Terror. A short legged pugnacious dog that commenced to beating up on Roxie from the get-go. Well, that upset CJ, especially when, after the first time, Roxie disappeared into the woods and CJ couldn’t find her for a couple of hours. He eventually found her using the logic of following her tracks in the soft sand, to a pool in the creek where she was sitting nursing her wounded ego and looking goofy.
Now, tho, thanks to good food and vitamins, Roxie has grown to be close to twice the Jack Russell’s size. And, in her very own laid back retriever sort of way, deals with that dog. She sits on him. When he starts to bully her, she’ll gently grab his front leg in her mouth, flip him on his back, and sit on him. Unfortunately, the only camera CJ owns in is his phone, which he can’t find, or else I’d have pictures proving it.
