Merry Dogmas to Molly Bukro and all the other superb foster moms out there. Molly, I know you put your heart and soul into helping heal (and heel) boxers and finding them loving homes. Bless you for all you do. I am fortunate to be your mother, and I am so proud of you and all you do. This gift is also from (in absentia) all the former family boxers: Uma, Wrinkles, Sophie, Blanche, Gussie, and Wilson — and from Finn, a boxer at heart.

With love, Mom11.21.21

We feel like we’re still hearing and seeing Red at times.  He was with us for only 5 years but his presence goes on forever just like Sadie before him.

When I head to the front door from the garden I almost see him racing to get to the door before me from where he’d been laying in the sun. We miss his delight at getting a new toy which was always full of joyous celebration. We miss his zoomies  up and down the hallway with a toy in his mouth, and his happiness to just run around the yard.  We miss his big brown eyes asking to cuddle with us on the couch when he got tired. Every time I ask Bob if he’s hungry, I expect Red to jump up and follow me into the kitchen as though my question was just for him to answer. When the cell phone rings I can almost hear Red woowooing in answer. Red had so much joy and wagged his tail so hard at times we worried he’d break it. Even when this cruel disease took away his ability to walk or wag, he showed his joy with licks and woowoos.

Red was dad’s buddy and mom’s protector.   We sorely miss his physical presence but we have his spirit with us and so many good memories.

Dear Olive,

We love you and miss you so much! We are lucky to have spent the past decade with you. We will always remember your big eyes, your wiggle-womp, your outgoing personality, your love for food and a warm fire, and your aversion to rain. You were a sweet, gentle and adorably stubborn soul – and you’ll always be part of our family.

Boxer-Bean, Jelly-Bean, Snaggletooth, Loggy-Doggy, GoodGirl… Olive.

Dixon to Olive dog: I miss you.

Love, Lara, James and Dixon01.23.21
With Love, The Ammerman Family

We feel incredibly lucky and honored that Katie joined our family. She was so loving and gentle with our kids, brought a smile to our faces every day, and taught us how amazing it feels to open your heart to a rescue dog.

Although there is now a huge hole in our hearts, we take comfort in knowing that she’s no longer suffering. She’s running and playing with Harley & Mattie on the other side of that rainbow.

Thank you NCBR for giving us the opportunity to love our Katie Bug. We will cherish her memory forever!

With Love, The Ammerman Family01.22.21
