Rumbley the Tumbley Boxer

From the beginning

I was born in Istanbul, Turkey in 2001. My human dad came to visit one day and said I was the best. The pick of the litter. The sweetest little guy. He was right. He let me say goodbye to my littermates and dog-mom and off we went to start my new life.

We went for a ride in a car (first time for me) and dad tried to keep me in an open top box so I’d be quiet and safe. No way! I escaped and wiggled around everywhere! Yay! It was so much fun.

Then we went to human mom’s workplace. She loved me right away. She said, “Hello, puppy. I’m your new mommy.”

We all got back in the car and went to a place mom and dad called “Home.” When we got there, mom and dad got very quiet and whispery. They put my on the couch and stood by the stairs. They loudly called some names. And two kids  came running down the stairs. Boy, were they surprised and happy and excited to see me on the couch. And me? I was so thrilled. How lucky was I to get two kids?!

      My mom’s friend J Shea Stanley did the illustration a few years ago. Mom emailed him a photo and he turned me into a work of art! You might be able to contact him at He’s a big dog lover. He has a dog named Ripley who is the star of a comic book. Isn’t she a lucky dog?
