Found by John W. Howell ©2014
We were walking on the beach yesterday and came upon an interesting couple from Houston. They were in town for a little rest and relaxation. Like most mornings my wife and I were walking our Boxer Lucy. Lucy loves to go for walks and hopes to run into a number of people since she loves to be adored and admired. Unfortunately for her the beach is really quite deserted this time of year as you can see in the photo. Lucy tends to comfort herself by chasing gulls and plovers, as well as, a stray sand crab or two. She never ever catches anything but still keeps trying.
The couple from Houston were familiar with Boxers and had a number of them. Of course, Lucy was delighted to meet them and showed them all her tricks which number two. They are “sit,” and “give me five.” The subject of age came up since Lucy tends to act like a puppy and where we got her.
The wife of the couple said, “Where did you ever find a white Boxer.”
“Lucy is a rescue,” my wife said. “She was found on the streets of San Antonio.”
“My goodness, she looks so happy.”
“She is happy now. She was rescued by Austin Boxer Rescue and has been with us for three years.”
After a few more comments, we departed company and I was thinking how much I am glad she was found and that she is now with us. Lucy looked at me and I swear her expression was “me too dad.” She then took off after a heron standing in the water. (no she didn’t get near him)
