    A Borgi?

    So, Mindy is definitely a mix, no doubt. So this Christmas, my gift to myself was getting her DNA tested to see what else was in there. I used Canine Heritage, which does the cheek swab, detects about 125 breeds. So drumroll please.... Mindy is primarily Boxer, so at least one of her...

    It's been 2 years my sweet girl.

    I was unable to post last year and so far this year, I have been crying all morning. Snubby, you went away from me two years ago today, I know you had to go. And now, two years later, I know why, it was so that I could be free to take in Mindy who needed me deparately just a month after you...

    A little help please.

    I am hoping to get a little help with Mindy and raw. In January I switched Mindy to raw hoping to help her chronic diahrrea. We started with Honest Kitchen until, in March, I decided to scrap that and just go with the real deal. I started her at 2% of her body weight, it was quickly apparent...

    Its been a little while... (long)

    and I wanted to let everyone know how the pups were doing. Mindy is thriving in daycare. She's been going since May now and it has actually helped her in barking at every dog she sees on the street. But she does seem to have a problem always breaking her toenails at daycare, I am still trying...

    More Vibes for Keedo, Please.

    Well folks, here I am again begging for those Boxerworld vibes this group is so famous for. Two nights ago now, Keedo had what we thought was a seizure, his eyes were going back and forth, he couldn't stand up. So we rushed him to the EVet. By the time we got there he was fine. So the vet...

    Mindy got beat up...

    So today was our fourth night of class. After class we always do a little doggie playtime. Mindy has a Golden and a Poodle in her class and they play well together...until tonight. The Golden's owner was talking about how good he had gotten with other dogs and how he used to be unpredictable...

    I must brag...

    I don't know if I ever posted about Mindy's problem when she sees other dogs on our walks, but she goes a bit crazy, barking and carrying on. She just wants to play, but when you have a solid muscle 60 pounder barking and jumping, it looks quite intimidating. So now Mindy has been attending...

    The Greatest American Dog - Presley??

    Ok, who else out there is watching the new show 'The Greatest American Dog' just so they can oogle over Presley the Boxer??? He is so beautiful (and if I can say, he dad isn't bad looking either). Honestly, if there wasn't a boxer in it, I probably wouldn't watch. Those dogs are really...

    Growling (sorry long)

    I have a few questions on whether growling is appropriate in some situations. First, Mindy does not like to have her rear legs pinned down. If I am on the sofa and she is next to me and I accidently roll on her hind legs, she gives a growl and then gets off the sofa. It also happens in bed if...

    Now for the bad news

    My mom and I took her new boy Keedo (I just introduced him in the Boxer Ring) to the vet on Friday for some bloodwork and just a general physical. He had a needle aspiration on a bump between his shoulder blades and you guessed it Mast Cells showed up in the aspirate. He is having surgery on 8...

    Introducing Keedo

    Happy Birthday Mindy Moo!!

    All my dogs have been rescues and with the first one I decided that the day they were surrendered to the shelter, would be their birthday. I see it as turning a horrible day into a wonderful day. Well, Friday was Mindy's birthday, but we celebrated today. So today, we had a cake from the...

    Mindy is at Daycare!!!!

    So Mindy went to get a bath today at a place that also does daycare. I figured while she was there I would check out the facility and if I liked it, I would turn in the paperwork. Well, turns out, they evaluated her right after her bath and she stayed (she is there right now). I watched her...

    Peeing problem...

    My bw friends, I need some advise. This is a two part question/problem. First, Mindy is peeing in the house (I do not believe she has a UTI because she is holding it in the crate). I fixed part of this problem. She likes to sit at the back door and watch, but she wasn't coming to tell me she...

    First swim of the year...

    Well, it is not all that warm here in Allentown, PA, but Mindy decided she wanted to chase after a mallard duck in the park. So she got her first swim of the year, I figured after she was wet, might as well just let her go in and continue her fun :rolleyes: I tested the water and it wasn't too...

    Mindy's Hearing

    I haven't posted about this before, but Mindy will be going for a BAER hearing test soon. From the very beginning, my trainer and I have been convinced Mindy had some amount of hearing loss. She never knows the direction a noise is coming from and when we tried recall on a long (25ft) lead, it...

    Broken Tooth

    I just noticed that Mindy appears to have a broken tooth. It is one of the little ones in the front. She doesn't appear to be in any pain or discomfort. She is eating and drinking just fine. I suppose if it is not bothering her, it is fine?

    Boxer on Lifetime

    I just wanted to say, I am watching a movie called 'Thirteen' on Lifetime (nothing else is really on). Although the movie is disturbing and making me scared to ever have children, there is a beautiful silver-faced fawn Boxer boy in the movie!!!! That made the movie for me!
