Sammy's Mom: Yes, I am grateful every day for this board and all of the members here. I would be a basket case without this place and all of the help and support and love I've received at Boxerworld. It is truly an amazing place filled with lovely, wonderful people. I can't thank all of you enough. I was so shocked that they took the time to make signs and do pictures for Susie's homecoming. I was truly honored. I've emailed that link and those pics to everyone I know!! I'm sure they are all very sick of hearing about Maggie and Susie by now. But hey, that's what proud parents do, right? I was debating on the color collar and leash I was going to get for Susie Q. I was leaning towards white because it was NOT the obvious choice like red or blue or purple. But when I saw her in green, I thought, "hey, green's a nice color on her." I may have to get her some green attire myself. I tried dressing Maggie up, but she looked so miserable I couldn't do it anymore. I did post one picture of her in a green (pea green, ugh) sweater on the Boxerworld Gallery and she too has that "pained boxer face." Poor babies. What we won't do to them to entertain ourselves !! I got Susie a new blankie to take with us. I am planning on putting it down for Maggie to sniff and get her scent on before we go. There's been so much to do to prepare for the new arrival. I hope I get it all done before Sunday. I got a new raised table for Susie this morning so she'll have her own table to eat and drink from as does Maggie. I have to cut the table cloth today, put up the crate again, re-arrange the kitchen to accommodate the crate and new dining table. And on and on and on... I'm having the TIME OF MY LIFE!! Well, I'm not sure how much a cab would be the three blocks it is from my house to the park. But, I'm sure we'll be taking a few car rides now and then. I can always rent a car, and many friends have cars here in the neighborhood. But I'm sure she won't mind walking to the park. It is lovely here and I can picture them in my mind now, walking nicely together, proudly prancing with their heads up and looking all around, as boxers do. I will be the proudest man in Brookly next week, I can assure you of that. Thanks for your well wishes and stories. This has been such a terrific experience and I can't wait to share with all of you the "Exploits of Maggie and Susie from Brooklyn." Hey, maybe a television series.... I'd watch a new "Lassie" with a boxer twist, wouldn't you??? Best regards.
