    Re-introducing myself

    Wow, time flies. I haven't been on here for a while (since 2004 to be exact!!). I don't know how many people are still around from back then. We've had 3 boxers. Unfortunately we lost our girl Bailey to cancer in October, 2008. Presently, we don't have a boxer. :( I thought I'd get...

    Is that REALLY an APBT or a boxer??

    I was at Petco this weekend and glanced at the display of calendars, datebooks, etc. I saw a boxer (or so I thought) on the cover of a datebook. I picked it up and the title was "American Pit Bull Terriers." I figured it must be a mistake. :confused: Flipping through it, all the photos...

    Dangers of retractable leash

    I usually don't forward "warnings," but this one seemed noteworthy. I feel if used with caution, care, and common sense the majority of products are generally safe. Now I'm not so sure about this one. Here's a link to the story: http://www.foxpdx.com/Global/story.asp?s=737793 In a...

    Oh, those ridiculous comments!

    As boxer-owners, I know we all have encountered questions and comments from people that are irritating, annoying, and sometimes just plain funny. Only other boxer people can truly appreciate this. Here are some I've personally heard: On meeting Remy- "Oh, he's an albino." On...

    Dog park fiasco --your opinions please

    Okay, something happened at our play day yesterday I wanted to get some opinions on. I'm a bit perturbed, but may be being unreasonable and one-sided. My hubby just says, "why do you go there?" We had a small boxer play day at our local dog park. This is a fully fenced off-leash dog park...

    How did they get MY phone number?!

    I had a weird thing happen and wondered if someone can shed some light on it for me. Two days ago, I got a call asking for the previous owners of our house. I was caught off guard and confused and said, "no they moved 6 years ago." Then it occurred to me that they never had the same phone...

    Help - Toy dogs wanted

    I thought someone here might be able to give me some ideas. My daughter is turning 10 in a month. She's decided she wants to start collecting dogs (toy/statute/model type dogs). She has a few already. (They're about 3-4 inches tall and hard molded plastic.) She said any breed is okay, except...

    Question re Yukon/Tahoe SUV's

    This has been driving me crazy. Hopefully someone here can help. I have a 1999 GMC Yukon. I am trying to figure out how to get the windows in the backseat to go down all the way. There is some child safety feature and the back windows only go down about 5-6 inches! :mad: My kids are...

    Albino boxers?

    I was wondering is there are any albino boxers? I know albino is a lack of pigment (white coat, pink eyes). And I know white boxers are not albino. We were camping this weekend and I was walking Remy. I heard some neighboring campers talking as we walked past. I heard "dog" "pure...

    Dumb question about Nutro

    First let me apologize for sounding so stupid and asking such an insignificant question, but I thought everyone here would understand. Okay, here's the really dumb question about Nutro dog food... :o Does anyone else have trouble opening the #$%&@ bag? I switched from an inexpensive...

    When at the vet...

    Just curious... When you take your dogs to the vet, do you go into the examining room with them or have to wait outside? Every vet we've been to, I've always gone in with them, except for when Remy was getting taped after his ear crop. A while ago, I saw a report on one of those news...

    Ideas for boxer bash?

    A few of us are in the midst of planning a "boxer bash" in our area. Last year we put out the word that we would meet at the dog park on X day at X time and we ended up with 9 boxers to play together! Sounds like this year we may have more people and boxers!! And some are coming from...

    Cindy and I (and a few other of us boxer people in the Northwest) are thinking of having another "boxer bash." We're considering doing it in May sometime. Probably meet at the dog park for an afternoon with our boxers. :) Are there people in our area (Oregon, Washington...) who would be...

    Reverse Flashy

    With all the talk lately about "black boxers", I thought I would bring this up for discussion... I believe the term "reverse brindle" is really a layman's term and is truly not a different type of brindle, just a different pattern of stripes--brindle is brindle. Anyway, I thought that we...

    Forum rules

    Moderators-- Is there someplace on Boxerworld to view the forum rules (besides when initially registering)? I admit I did skim through them when I registered (soooo long ago :o ), but none seemed to apply to me, so I didn't remember them all. Perhaps we all need a "refresher". Thanks...

    Trip to Petsmart

    I thought I'd share our day yesterday. My 9-year old daughter and I took Bailey to Petsmart. She's been acting like a maniac and I'm trying to socialize her more and more (Bailey--not my daughter :) ). My daughter begged to hold the leash. I told her to stay close to me so I can grab it if...
