Mama's friend, Carmen, has been working hard to organize the Atlanta Boxer Rescue. She and her team finally formed a board, applied for business and non-profit applications, planned events and organized rescue operations for homeless Boxers in the metro Atlanta area.
They've been waiting a long time for this day to come. They've talked about it for years. Carmen says that Atlanta has been in desperate need of a large, thorough Boxer-specific rescue organization. Now they have assembled a board of dedicated and talented people who will work to find Boxers their forever homes.

Well, it's Monday morning and where am I? At work, of course!
Papa often takes me to his office. Don't forget, I'm a Working dog! When Papa's on the dock, I'm right there with him, sleeves rolled up and working hard. When he's at his desk, I'm lying by his feet or carousing around looking for hugs from the staff, which I always get.
Part of my job is to run around the dock and find wooden sticks and planks. It's tough work and it doesn't pay that well, but the benefits are excellent. I get breakfast, lunch and snacks, water, transportation, playbreaks with the secretaries, snoozetime and cuddles. Sometimes other people bring their dogs to work too, so there's sometimes some goofing off.
Here I am on the dock with a big, slippery stick. Mama stopped by and that's her calling me "Poupoun," one of my nicknames, and that's my silly Papa barking in the background and telling me to find a smaller stick because this one was really a heavy plank and it was making me clumsy.
