0 Pet Adoption | Humane Society of R-F: Roxey's Looking for a Dance Teacher!

Meet Miss Foxey Roxey, our very talented dog of the week. This girl is going to win the 2015 Dance Award for.....envelope please....Smartest, Sweetest, Most Loyal Dancer of the Year! Seriously, Roxey is one special pup looking for the family that needs her love.

You may be familiar with the famous New Jersey based Roxey Ballet, the all contemporary dance company. Well, when our Roxey heard their mission statement "Using dance to build community and cultural bridges", she just had to plagiarize it and use it as her own. She's a non-discriminatory love-bug who will dance her little heart out to please her master. And although ballet may not be her strongest dance, she excels at the Hootchy-Kootchy and the Jitterbug and has really been wanting to try the Samba.

0 Local Profile | "4 Questions with MJ Olsen"

2 Sisters and I at Boca Chica Beach, Texas
MJ is pictured center.
1. Where (and how) did you grow up?

I was born and raised in Brownsville, Texas. Our home was the center where all the cousins came together…we were a formidable force. On one occasion, I recall several aunts and uncles going to Boca Chica Beach…cars lined up in a row…connected by a sheet that was strung from one car to another. Life was great. What great memories!

2. How did your upbringing affect what you do for a living now?

My Mom expected that regardless of what job we had, that we did it to the very best. Having values and morals spoke volumes. Good manners were expected regardless of whom you spoke to. My grandmother had a saying “uno nunca sabe por quien trabaja.” In English - one never knows for whom you (will) work for. For those who know me know - you soy Mexicana – and can speak English and Spanish all at once as needed.
