Michelle’s Pet Challenge: Meet Roxy


Our son and family have recently adopted a gorgeous rescue dog, and we met her for the first time when we went to visit last week. Roxy is an adorable three-month old, black and white English Pointer.

She’s such a sweet little puppy, and everyone wants to make a fuss of her. She just laps up all the affection showered upon her.

It is said that Pointers are habitual “couch potatoes” who enjoy relaxing on the family’s chairs or sofas, and Roxy is no exception to the rule. In the evenings, she loves to snuggle up next to the family. She’s going to be a big dog when she grows up; just look at the size of those paws!

She’s shows a great interest in what’s going on around her, and doesn’t like to be left out of anything.

Although she’s such a friendly and happy little dog, she can sometimes look rather serious, and has the most soulful eyes.

She’s very energetic, and a few days ago, several rather large holes mysteriously appeared in the lawn. She enjoys exploring the garden, but I think what she loves most of all, is being inside the house with the family, which is apparently a natural part of this breed’s desire to feel part of the pack. Grooming her isn’t at all time-consuming, as her coat isΒ  very short, so just a quick rub with a soft brush is all that’s needed. I’m sure that she’s going to have a very happy life with the three grandchildren to play with.

I hope you’ve enjoyed meeting Roxy as much as I did. To see more bloggers’ pet pics, just click on the badge below.

    • She is very happy with her new home. I think that the way dogs are able to show so much unconditional love, proves that they are far superior to humans.

  2. What a gorgeous little dog ! … And iΒ΄m sure that her eyes can melt hearts everywhere … Her breed is going to be big and its a real challenge to have a dog like this, but mostly its fun and they give so much love and joy back … I canΒ΄t imagine a life without a dog // Maria πŸ™‚

  3. What a cute pupster and great photos! Sounds like she picked a good home and family. With 3 kids, she’s going to get all of the attention and exercise she wants. Perfect!

  4. She’s lovely Sylvia. Lucky to get an English Pointer pup as a rescue dog I’d imagine. I’d imagine she will be quite boisterous and the holes in the lawn do not surprise me but that’s all part of the fun of raising a puppy isn’t it? πŸ˜‰

  5. She’s beautiful. I love pointers — such gentle natures. One of my neighbours breeds and shows them. Her puppy that she’s kept from a recent litter got awarded runner-up as “best puppy in show” recently at a championship event.

  6. What a lovely pup AD .
    Family life will suit her well by looks of it … plenty of company, walks and a place to call her own .. The Sofa πŸ™‚

    • Hahaha. Yes, the sofa is fine for now, but I’m not sure if there’ll be room for anyone else, when she’s fully grown. Same goes for the bed. πŸ™‚

  7. So cute. Your description of Roxy fits with our own Thunder. They both look so affectionate and playful (and serious, too). πŸ™‚

  8. What a LOVELY puppy. I can see she is a bird hunting dog, and that will probably mean you could get a handful sometimes. I know all about digging. Had to protect my garden from my maniac the first year, but he learned. Energetic, yes. My dog like some brain challanges when we are not running too much. Like finding and fetching, love this too…

    • Thanks, Bente. Yes, having a dog like this comes with many responsibilities, and I’m sure that training it properly is quite time-consuming, but well worth the effort.

  9. She certainly looks like she’s part of the family. Its lovely to see she’s being so well cared for.

  10. What a splendid, happy, contented pup Roxy looks…but on the chairs? A difinite no no in our house.
    We all..dogs and humans…came to an agreement..I won, t sleep in your bed if you don, t sleep on my chair..works well most of the time.
    Happy life Roxy doxy xxxxxx

  11. What a lovely post! Absolutely love dogs – took me a long time to be a dog person, I was always a “cat person” now I love everything about them and think that Roxy is absolutely adorable! Sure she will have a long and happy life.

    Take care and regards

  12. Delighted to meet your Roxy although I do have slight reservations about Pointers! We inherited a pure bred German pointer. A hunter brought her over on a hunting trip and then abandoned her (?). She ate the washing off the line, consumed bags of raw potatoes at any opportunity and would frequently get stuck between the burglar bars in her efforts to invade the house. There was a happy ending – TL’s sister adopted her and they lived happily ever after πŸ™‚
