    Passed CGC Foundation

    appicon Dora passed her CGC Foundation assessment on the weekend :D We have been working towards this for the past six months. There was a big obedience trial day going on at the same time as we were being assessed and she kept her concentration for hours on end. She was such a good girl...

    The DREADED down/stay

    Dora has actually progressed to grade 3 obedience (I am as shcked at this as anyone!). Does anyone have any advice as to how to get Dora to stay once she is down? I use the word drop instead of down (as she seems to respond better to this) and she will go down, but I just cannot get her to...

    Severe Allergic Reaction

    On last Saturday afternoon Dora got stung by a bee (I think it was a bee). To cut a long scary story short, within 5 mintues she had trouble breathing and we made what has to be the fastest trip to the vet ever (broke all road rules and speed limits :eek:). I had to carry her in as she...

    One year on

    Hard to believe that it is already a year since my beautiful Diva crossed to the rainbow bridge. Diva was that one in a million boxer. http://www.boxerworld.com/forums/rainbow-bridge/163495-diva.html I will freely admit that I wallowed for months after Diva died and I still miss my girl...

    So proud and a little brag

    Awhile ago I posted that Dora had passed level 1 obedience. Well, a couple of weeks ago she (and I :lol:) passed level 2. She was sooooo good on assessment night, but it was still a close run thing as she does not seem to like the ‘down’ command. I had been working with her on this and she...

    That was fun!

    Since getting Dora just before Christmas we have been attending obedience training and much to my surprise and relief Dora has now passed level one basic obedience appicon (and it was torrential rain on the day). I was so rapt. We will now be signing up for level 2 which starts in a few weeks...

    Just asking for some good vibes as Dora is being spayed today and she has never been under anaesthetic before. I am sure that all will be fine, but just keep her in your thoughts ;) She trotted off quite happily with the nurse - I am the one whose a wreck!

    Dora Update

    Well the one major thing I had forgotten was how the ‘youngsters’ like to steal things. Dora’s list so far is bra, knickers, stainless steel spoon (yes really!), shoes (in particular one boot), towels, my handbag, remote controls, a beautiful coffee table type book given to me for Christmas...

    Dora the explorer

    Well I brought Dora home on Sunday and she has just been a dream. I can't believe how responsive she is to me and I have never come across such a laid back boxer! Having said that she will rark up when she wants - like tonight at the dog park she was so fast that Flynn (2 and a half year old...

    Some news!

    Well I am getting anther boxer! It has been just over 4 months since Diva went to the bridge and at one stage I thought I would never have another dog ever again. A bit of time has passed and I soooo miss having a boxer in my life. I thought that I would get a boy, but no I am getting a girl...

    Help with a cat!

    I have a cat that appears to have adopted me - long story, short - she turned up literally two days after Diva went to the rainbow bridge - and hasn't left. I don't have a problem with this as I don't mind cats and she was such a mangy sorry looking animal that I couldn't in good conscience...

    Diva

    In advance - I apolgise for the length of this (and it still won't say all I want to say). Diva was helped to cross to the rainbow bridge by a very caring vet and vet nurse at home with me by her side in the winter sunshine on the deck on Thursday 26 July 2012. Diva seemed to know and her...

    Good grief!!

    At least 2 weeks ago, if not more, Diva got into the rubbish bin - yes even elderly boxers cause mischief lolicon and this is a new behaviour for her :rolleyes: Anyway I got a bit panicky when I caught her doing this because there was a luncheon sausage wrapper (thick plastic) that couldn't be...

    Heart condition

    Strange how things work out!

    Back in mid February of this year I was talking with a breeder at a local (small) dog show and I had Diva with me. This breeder doesn't live in my town, but a couple of hours away. The breeder stated to me that she had a two year old male dog who she was looking to re-home as she is not going...
