Roxy, My Little Shadow


Roxy, a beautiful Pomeranian, is staying with us this weekend.  To say that she is my little shadow would be an understatement.  Remember Frasier, the TV show?  Frasier was living with his father, Martin, and his father’s dog, Eddie.  For some odd, crazy reason Eddie was fascinated with Frasier and would stare at him for long periods of time.  Well, Roxy also does that.  Sometimes she just sits close to me and stares at me.  I wonder, just like Frasier did, do I look like a giant kibble?

Roxy, "where are you going?"
Roxy, “where are you going?”

Can you see the leash?  The last time she was here, I had to go and run some errands so she stayed with Cynthia and Alex at home and we had to put a leash on her so she would not bolt out the door after me.  Cynthia took this picture.


According to Cynthia, Roxy stayed waiting for me for a while on this spot.  When I got back home she greeted me with her usual barking, running around me, and jumping.  I had to laugh because she is so tiny and adorable.  What a wonderful welcome I received from Roxy.

      1. I am fine with that. I don’t know what kind of dog he is. I wanted to email you a pic. Thats OK we will try it this way click the link below. You should see a picture of my dog

        Adorable. What is his name? He looks like a beagle mix, which means that when you take him out he needs to be on a leash because he’ll follow his nose. I don’t know what other mix he has in him, but I can see the beagle. I pet sit for a beagle a while ago. His name is Max and he was so loving, gentle, and a big lap dog. When we went out for a walk though, I had to make sure that collar and leash were properly put because beagles will follow their nose over anything else, including a pet parent. They are amazing dogs. What other question do you have?

      Hi Mandi. Thanks a lot for the nomination. Alex will be getting a special treat tonight. Have a great week:)

  3. Hello Marcela
    I imagine you must know this, but the dog on the Frasiere show when they were starting out had a fascination with Kelsey Grammar. I would just stare at him and know one knew why. They only then decided to work that into the show. Another thing is after that dog retired from the show it was so depressed and it would barely eat or play. It would just sleep all day. They did not know what was wrong with him. So the asked if Kelsey Grammar would come visit him. When he got there, that dog just sprung back to life as if nothing was ever wrong.

    our family has recently got a dog (my first). If you know a lot about behavioural issues i sure would like to ask you some questions. This dog of ours has to be ADD.

    1. Marcela says:

      Wow! No, I did not know about that, but thanks for sharing that info. I actually thought that Eddie was trained to stare at Frasier. Amazing! Congratulations on your first dog. Lol. ADD? Could be. My Alex when she was a puppy was hyperactive. If she had been a human kid, the doctors for sure would have wanted to put her on a bunch of meds. I love to interact with other pet parents, what questions do you have? I know some about behavioral issues because of reading, asking trainers, and just observing dogs.
