blue ridge boxer rescue: Wordless Wednesday ... Toys for Our Furbabies! - 12/17/14 10:06 AM

Today I had to run into Petsmart and they had the cutest pre-packaged toys for pets for Christmas.  They were all on sale so the perfect time to get toys for our fur-babies.  Each package has 6 toys so there will be much activity on Christmas day.
Guthrie our male boxer is the oldest and he was originally a foster thru Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue but we ended up adopting him.  Foster Failure.
McGrew our black Labrador .. adopted him from Moore Lab Rescue now Peak Lab Rescue.

blue ridge boxer rescue: Me and My Shadow! - 12/04/14 08:29 AM

Me and My Shadow!
We have four dogs which are all rescued and loved.  This is Corina and she is definitely my dog and my shadow.  Wherever I am you can be sure to find Corina.  This morning I was working in the kitchen and there was Corina on the couch which we have in the sun room/breakfast area. 
I had just given her a taste of peanut butter which she loves.  If it is spelled ... food ... she loves it.
I adopted Corina from Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue after my female boxer died several … (19 comments)

blue ridge boxer rescue: Someone's Trash is Our Treasure ... Offer the Gift of Life! - 11/18/14 11:11 PM

In January 2014 this beautiful and very sweet dog was found wandering all over our neighborhood.  He had no collar and was oh so thin.  He was also very shy and would only allow you to get so close and then he would walk away.
A snow storm was to hit our area that evening and I knew that we had to help this dog. 
I saw many neighbors look out, but they all returned to their homes and closed their doors. Not their problem or concern. One even suggested that we call the pound. That made … (5 comments)

Wordless Wednesday ... Check Out This Smile!!
This is Corina ... one of our four dogs and she was rescued by Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue and I adopted her from them.  She is a mix ... I think she is part boxer and part bulldog, so they call that a Valley Bulldog.  Whatever she is we love her.

blue ridge boxer rescue: One Is Never Alone When You Share Your Home With Fur Friends! - 04/06/14 06:49 AM

One Is Never Alone When You Share Your Home With Fur Friends!
The other day I was asked by clients if I feel lonely or alone when outside working in my flower gardens.  I had to laugh for I never feel alone or lonely for I have the company of one if not four fur friends.  In fact this was the face I saw as I was busy setting geraniums in the garden.  I looked up and there was our sweet girl Corina.  She stayed at the edge of the garden, just like the picture for the entire time I … (49 comments)

Get Your Pets Involved in Earth Day!!

This is one of my dogs that was re-cycled and saved.  Her name is Corina and we love her.  Thank goodness for rescue groups.  She came to me from Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue.
Doesn't her face show joy in being loved and having a home to call her own? 
Earth Day is a good day to look at ways to save energy as well as re-cycle.  It helps if we all look for ways to do our part.
I am a huge animal lover and … (8 comments)

blue ridge boxer rescue: My Boys Having a Boxing Match this Afternoon!! - 04/07/13 10:01 AM
My Boys Having a Boxing Match this Afternoon!!
My 3 year old black Labrador named McGrew loves to play and play and play.  When I rescued and adopted him last year my 7 year old male Boxer named Guthrie (also a rescue) was not very pleased.  Guthrie was very aloof for the longest time but McGrew just kept on following and hanging out with him.
Here they are heading out through the yard.  I see this all of the time.  McGrew is definitely a herding dog. 

They are now best buds and I actually find … (18 comments)

blue ridge boxer rescue: Here Are The Results of Tender Loving Care!! - 03/18/13 09:35 AM
Here Are The Results of Tender Loving Care!!
In December 2011, in fact the day after Christmas, I lost my beautiful male Boxer named BABE to cancer.  I was heartbroken, my mother missed him and our two other dogs were also mourning his loss.
In January 2012 I began to search for a new dog.  Would it be another Boxer?  I really saw one in a high kill shelter that needed rescued, but with my mother’s health condition and the unknowns of this Boxer, we had to pass.  Fortunately he was pulled by Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue and was … (18 comments)

Enjoying a sunny, but cool day here in the Carolinas!!
Today was a beautiful day following the heavy rain and storms of yesterday.
I had the privilege to work from home today and it was a joy.
I got so much done, but I also got to enjoy the company of my three fur babies.  Guthrie, McGrew and Corina.

Here is a picture of McGrew and Corina playing on one of our trips outside.  They are enjoying a sunny but cool day here in the Carolinas.  They are both dogs that I adopted from..

blue ridge boxer rescue: Just Waiting to be Rescued!!! - 01/13/13 08:34 AM
Have you ever considered fostering or adopting from your local animal shelter or rescue group?
Last year I had the very painful experience of losing two of my Boxers that I had for many years.  One passed after Christmas 2011 and my female Boxer passed in July 2012.  To say I was heart-broken is an understatement.
Not only was I mourning their loss, but my male Boxer named Guthrie was also very down and sad.
I knew that I could not replace BABE and LadyLilly, but I could open my heart and home to other dogs in need of a loving … (20 comments)

blue ridge boxer rescue: Helping Another After Losing One That You Love Here in Charlotte, NC - 01/10/12 12:38 PM
As many of you know I had a real heart break on December 26, 2011.  My Boxer named BABE died that day.  It was such a shock as well as a major loss.
The past two weeks have been sad for my family and my other pets.  Everyone is fine but everyone is experiencing the loss.
I gave a donation in honor of BABE to Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue for that is where I first met and fostered my sweet Boxer and have enjoyed having him in our lives for over 8 years.  BABE can never be replaced, but … (17 comments)

blue ridge boxer rescue: Feeling Numb after the Loss of my Boxer... BABE - 12/26/11 12:01 PM
Today was a very sad and emotional day.
Two months ago my Boxer named BABE began to have seizures and lose his vision.  I took him to the Vet and he was placed on phenobarbitol.  He has been doing great and you would never know that he had gone blind.  He was responding to step, stop, careful and etc.
I became a foster parent to BABE in 2003 when he ended up in the Charlotte pound and was on death row for he was heart-worm positive.  I volunteer with Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue and at that time I offered … (19 comments)

blue ridge boxer rescue: I Am so Grateful for Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue! - 10/29/11 01:19 PM
Years ago I was so lucky to meet the many wonderful directors and volunteers with Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue.  I started really slow when I first volunteered with Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue.
You may wonder what one can do to assist and volunteer for a local rescue group in your area.
You can volunteer your time to attend and assist with fundraisers. You can volunteer to help transport animals.  They have to be transported from where they are rescued from to their foster homes or to the vetinarian for appts.  You can donate money. You can volunteer to head up a fundraiser. … (11 comments)

blue ridge boxer rescue: This Honey Bee Is Looking For His Forever Home! - 10/14/11 03:51 PM
This beautiful Boxer was rescued by Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue and he is now available for adoption.  His name is Cash and he is very handsome.  Here he is in his Halloween Costume.  I think he is trying to tell us something.  I think he is saying...I am going to sting the heck out of you if you don't get me out of this outfit.

Hey everybody I'm Cash money but my foster mom calls me Cashman...cause I'm all boy. I love to play and play hard. I LOVE other dogs especially the Ladies (wink* wink*) and would prefer a … (20 comments)

There are so many wonderful dogs in need and there is a desperate need for foster homes, so that many more dogs can be gotten to safety.  Many are in high kill facilities and are on borrowed time.
