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 is  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.
