Moxie was a large, drafty but still very pretty girl, with lovely bone and substance, a gorgeous head, beautiful true front, powerful rear, and thick, very black, wavy coat.  The only thing I would change about her?  I'd have given her a better attitude for the show ring, as she really had no desire to be a show dog.  She loved the attention of shows, meeting strangers and staying in hotels...but would rather be anywhere than the ring.  Moxie had a complex personality that makes her an absolute joy -- smart yet silly, devoted yet stubborn, gentle yet rowdy, and above all, very tolerant.  I don't think Moxie ever truly was a puppy; she was an old soul from the start.  Although she clearly had her own agenda and she frustrated me every time we go to a show, hers was the temperament and personality I'd most like to replicate in my breeding program.  She absolutely adored children, puppies, small dogs, and anything she can "mother."  Her soft expression and deep, dark eyes never lied.  And she was never far from my side. Moxie had all her health clearances, and produced her first litter in June 2008, her second litter in May 2009 and her third and final litter in June 2011.  Of Moxie's 17 offspring, 35% of them (including five from her May '09 litter with Bowie) earned their championships and her Register of Merit (ROM).  

Moxie was as healthy as a horse until the last few days of her life.  In the end, it was old age and a lack of "mobility" that robbed me of more time with my most special girl.  As difficult as it was to make that "quality of life" decision, I could not watch my girl suffer.  I was there when she took her last breath, and hugged her one last time for what probably lasted 20 minutes.  But I know that when she crossed the bridge, she quickly made herself at home as the keeper and caretaker of every puppy who needed a Mom.  That was her greatest gift. That, and the unconditional love she shared with so many of her extended family.  My Mom said it best when she said Moxie's favorite place was never the show ring, but in the hearts of all who knew her.   

Moxie was co-owned by her favorite person (and my niece), Emily.
