Best Friends

A friend bred his JRT and asked me if I wanted a puppy when they arrived. I kiddingly told him that I might if he had a female that matched my white boxer "Lola" who was about 2 years old at the time. He called when the first, and he thought only, puppy was born and told me she was white with a patch over one eye. I laughingly told him that wasn't a close enough match. About 24 hours later, the second, and last, puppy arrived. My friend called me immediately and told me she was solid white with two patches just like my boxer. It seemed like it was meant to be, so I became the somewhat reluctant owner of a six week old puppy. Irrepressible, fearless and fiesty, she bounded into our quiet lives after a very great family tragedy. Somehow I knew that her name just had to be Joy. She has indeed brought a great deal of joy into my life and the life of her best buddy, Lola.

Nice Story
by: Bowser & Brie's Mommy

So glad you got a "match!" That's wonderful. We added our second "Jane Russell" recently and our entire family is much happier, especially Miss Brie whom we rescued. She is such a love we can't understand how anyone could abandon her! Bowser's much happier, too. One look at a picture of her online and we were smitten. Pics to come soon!

Joy and Lola
by: Colleen

What a sweet story. Having grown up with a boxer I have such a soft spot for them. I love how Joy and Lola look related even though they are completely different breeds. It was meant to be!
