Veronica and Dennis are packing, they’re traveling again.
I’m not sad at all: I AM GOING TO UNCLE BRADLEY!!! YIPPIE!
I think Veronica is very upset leaving me for such a long time. I know she finds it very hard to be away from me. I’m such an important presence in her life.
Dennis misses me too, a lot, even though he pretends he doesn’t.
I have a special passport! With my name, my chip number, my vaccinations, very important, all dogs here have one.
At Stillwagon’s they need to know I am healthy and have all my shots.
This is my dog camp, at Uncle Bradley’s, its called “Stillwagon”. You see how much space there is to play and go crazy.
We stay in separate dorms and have room mates, we’re never lonely or bored. There is a daily schedule;
wake up call, out for some fresh air, breakfast, rest, out to play, in to rest, out to play, etc, end of day dinner, rest, out for last fresh air, night sleep.
I come here 5 to 6 times a year. I’m used to the routine, I know everyone.
The first time I was not even 4 months old. I came with my Lego, she was my security blanket. Everyone loved me and cuddled with me; the “adorable boxer pup”.
Well you all know what an absolutely irresistible puppy I was. I still am, irresistible, but in a different way, I’m all grown up now.
I’m very excited; who’s going to be behind that door? I’d love to rush in and see, but Veronica tells me I have to go by the rules. First say hello, then show my passport, and only after this am I allowed in!
I run inside without a glance back. I don’t want to see Veronica’s worried face. She’s pathetic! I’M FINE HERE!! Get a grip!
Here’s Uncle Bradley! He’s the BEST! The TOP leader, all dogs look up to him and adore him.
He thinks I’m great, he even told Veronica; “Felicia is very obedient”. THE Uncle Bradley himself thinks I’m VERY OBEDIENT!! Wow! That’s something!
Wish Veronica would remember that at times, and STOP complaining about my very small, very very small flaws.
Maryline shows up, I LOVE her!! She loves me, I know that. She’s very special, she took care of me a lot as a pup. I think she has a killer smile! Look how happy she is to see me.
I know, I know I tend to slightly overdo the “greeting routine”, I can’t help it. My emotions take the better of me. Veronica thinks I should learn to be more composed.
I love everyone working here, they’re all real nice, sweet and fun. THEY ADORE ME!
Yep, I’m the sweetest little ball of muscles there is, still worth mentioning, and Veronica should remember that too.
I’m always friendly here. Anne told Veronica: “Felicia is happy with everyone, happy with the males, happy with the females, happy with people”. That’s exactly what I am: one happy Boxergirl!!
Yes ok, no need reminding, I know I sometimes, only sometimes, am a tiny tiny, grumpy at dog encounters, but that’s not my fault. Those dogs provoke me!
Wow this is one big dude, hmm, a Beauceron, like Inook.
Ok so nobody here, might be where I’ll go, I’m so curious about my room mate!! I’ve met so many great friends here over the years.
As I go into my space I see there are two Boxers next door, who are they? I might check them out later but first time to play with my new friend!
Hello Sheriff, let’s play and run , and play some more…
…and chase each other around. Let’s see who’s the fastest? Unfortunately running fast is not my best attribute. My legs are too short, that’s why!!
One thing’s sure, no time to be bored! We hit it off immediately, he’s great!
Sometimes, when I stay for a long time, I get to play with different guys. This is Azram the Leonberg, I think he’s gorgeous. We had so much fun, hope he’ll be back!
He’s much taller then me but I don’t care, remember: I have big muscles! Even Dr L says so, AND Uncle Bradley agrees. I can play with the big boys!
When we’re tired we just go inside to rest, anyhow the other dogs need the space for a while, so we take turns.
This is the food station. We get delicious food, real yummy. We all eat separately, no stress, no-one’s going to steal our dinner.
Suits me fine, not that I worry, but you never know, just saying.
This is the least favourite part. The “Cleaning station”! We get a shower before going home, especially if we’re all muddy. I know Veronica appreciates.
I’m used to it by now, I get lots of praise for being such a brave boxer. Yes, it’s very difficult and I’m courageous and deserve praise!
You see, I’m perfectly happy!! I’m staying here 2 weeks. Yeah I know, how lucky am I?? Boy, am I going to have a ball!!
Poor Veronica, this is going to be very difficult for her, you see, I don’t really miss her, there is just too much going on.
She’d better not call to check on me!! She’s done it in the past. Nothing more embarrassing then having your “Mom” call… pffff! I’m a big girl, I can handle myself!
I LOVE IT HERE!!
Thank you, Maryline, Lorry, Anne and Fred, for making Felicia’s stay the best at Stillwagon Kennel, and for having cared with love for my old lady Lego until her last day. A special thanks to Uncle Bradley, as he is known to Felicia, for taking extra special care for her.
