In memory of Roxie

Roxie ... a bright new star
This morning we received a generous donation from Luann and Frank H. Both Luann and Frank have volunteered at many of our spay/neuter clinics up at Leech Lake Reservation.

We received the following note from Luann and Frank ...

"On Friday, Frank and I had to say good-bye to Roxie, our beloved Pit Bull mix.  Roxie, at 6 mo. old, was picked up on the Fond Du Lac reservation.  It was obvious that she had suffered terrible abuse. After another 6 months at the Hibbing shelter, we adopted her in spite of warnings from a volunteer that she was an unstable dog.  Roxie became the most loving, loyal dog we have ever had.  She packed a lot of living into her nearly 12 years, and was an outstanding travel companion.  Our hearts are breaking right now; we miss those soulful eyes and wonderful Pittie smile she always had before she got sick.  Although cancer took her life, Roxie's joyful, exuberant spirit will be in our hearts forever.

Because Roxie came from a northern Minnesota reservation and her story is typical of so many of the dogs helped by Leech Lake Legacy, we thought it was fitting to make a contribution to LLL in Roxie's memory .... "

RIP sweet Roxie. Your memory and donation will continue to live on in the spirits of your fellow rez dogs.
