Mocha was our 9 year old boxer.  We were her 4th and last home.  I brought her home on December 29th, 2010 and have been grateful ever since then for her being in our life.  She helped keep me busy when Aaron deployed and I was by myself.  When he got home she kept him company while I was gone/deployed.  She was the sweetest dog I’ve ever met and always tried to cuddle with us (even on our bed/couch where she wasn’t allowed). She also constantly played my shadow, following me around the house.  A favorite spot of hers was on a bed in the kitchen, watching me while I worked.  However, her absolute favorite things to do were wrestling with Aaron and going on walks.  She was always so happy to hit the trails.

Unfortunately not even 2 years after having her in our home, she developed cancer (systemic lymphoma) and left us in July of 2012.  It was so hard to deal with, especially because I was gone at school when she passed. We miss her still.  However, we have a lot of fond memories that still bring smiles to our faces.  I don’t think I’ll ever meet another dog with as much sass as her.

This is a shadow box I made of her things.  In it is the sweater she was wearing when I picked her up from the airport after being shipped to me from Indiana.  The paw print was given to us by our vet when she passed.  Her collar and a name tag are in there too.
