Thanks em, she is super sweet. And she's totally in love with me, for some reason. We go to the beach every day, but yesterday I was in Long Beach with a friend and we went to the beach there. Roxie had a little poop explosion on the way there, and I forgot to grab baggies from the car, so I left her with my friend to go get a baggie to scoop up the damage.
When I got back, they were standing in the same spot, watching me. Roxie totally lost interest in the other dogs or the beach since I wasn't there, wouldn't move a muscle until I came back.
If anyone else is ever thinking about getting a dog, I can definitely recommend going the rescue route. There are so many dogs who are unloved and mistreated, and THEY KNOW when they get an owner who loves and takes care of them, and behave accordingly.
