Virtual Birthday Party for Roxette, the homeless Chiweenie!

wm-aj7a3050-editHomeless since December 2015, we realized that our sweet and shy little foster dog, Roxette, has turned 10yrs young while in our care!


See the party details below!

I remember my 10th birthday like it was yesterday. I was finally in the double-digits. It was majorly monumental, and totally radical. I felt like I had grown a whole new skin overnight, and it was sparkly.

It made me wonder… has this sassy little Chihuahua-Dachshund mix ever had a birthday party? Has she ever had a day where someone took the time to celebrate everything that is wonderful about her? Because, I can tell you first-hand that there are many wonderful things about her.

Like, I love the way she can keep time without the assistance of an Apple watch. She knows exactly when it’s mealtime, and she isn’t afraid to keep me on task! And I love the way she slowly, but surely, opens her heart to me. Earning her trust is like peeling back rose petals to find a pearl inside.

It’s about time Roxette had a day to be celebrated! So, in the absence of knowing her actual birth date, we are declaring this Sunday, January 22nd, Roxette’s officially unofficial BIRTHDAY! 

Because Roxette isn’t exactly a fan of parties where there are people involved (she approves the cake, though) and because most of you are not within driving distance, we will host a VIRTUAL BIRTHDAY PARTY on our Ottis to the Rescue Facebook page, where everyone can watch and enjoy from wherever they are! So, set your calendars and charge your phones! We can’t wait to “see” you there!

We are going to go LIVE on Facebook – Sunday, January 22nd, 2017 at 2pm PST!

Roxette’s Gift Registry

Many of you have asked where you can send cards, gifts, and donations. Roxette is happy as a clam just knowing you are sending her loving well-wishes, but here are the details for those interested.

  • Amazon Wish List. I asked Roxette what she wanted for her birthday and she gave me a few ideas, such as treat puzzle toys and calming collars, but she also stressed that she wanted to help her fellow homeless friends in Motley Zoo Animal Rescue’s foster care. What Motley Zoo needs the most right now is nutritious food for all the puppies and nursing mothers in their care. To make things easier, we’ve compiled an Amazon Wish List with some of Roxette’s birthday wishes, as well as the food needs for Motley Zoo. Click the button below, or go here! If you select an item on the list, it will be mailed directly to us. If you would prefer to mail something to Roxette, or to the rescue, please see the mailing address below.

  • Love Roxette? Adopt her! Roxette is a shy and sweet 10yr old Chiweenie who is looking for a safe and warm place to retire. Her favorite activities are sunbathing in the Summer and napping by the fireplace in the Winter.  Roxette is fine sharing her home with other dogs and cats, but mostly she just wants to curling up with her person to read a good book, or even to binge watch Netflix! If you are an introverted homebody looking for a loyal companion, this might be the dog for you! For more information on Roxette and to request an adoption application, please click the ‘adopt me’ button below, or email Motley Zoo Animal Rescue.iconadoptlarge
