Location: Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA This was the first night I brought home Miss Roxy. We were two girls all alone in a big, new city and she was my first "child". I loved coming home every day and seeing her black and white smudgie face waiting for me by the door. A maintenance man in our building told me that when he would walk past my front door, he would see a white paw suddenly stick out from under the door and start waving… like Roxy was beckoning him to come play with her! To this day, she knows my footsteps and the sound of my keys and will be flopped on her back, showing her tummy by the time I walk inside.
