    Starting Raw Feeding

    I have finally convinced my dh to put our pups and kitty on a raw diet appicon So a few questions. 1) both my pups are 70# would one chicken quarter twice a day be enough to start with or to much? 2) I have read to feed one meat for 3-4 weeks before adding a different meat. I...

    Need BW brain power

    We got Reo last winter. We bathed him several times with no issues. Then for some reason during the summer within a couple hours of his bath he would get hives all over his body (it looked like he was one giant hive). They would last a good two weeks then disappear. Benadryl didn't work...

    Very proud of Reo today :)

    So we went to get a movie at one of those $1 movie kiosks. Well Nala and Reo were in the front seat watching us. They didn't notice the dog in the car two spaces over (which I was thankful for) Well this guy comes out of the store and hops in his car and his dog noticed my dogs and started to...

    My poor upset little girl ;)

    Nala hurt Reo this morning during their morning romp around the house. He is fine but Nala is so upset. She won't go near him, won't eat and has been moping all morning. This is the first time this has happened so it has been very interesting to see her response. I have tried to comfort her...

    Fat content in Food and Treats

    Reo had a severe pancreatic attack this week. He is doing good now but now we need to look at fat content in whatever he eats. Vet doesn't know why he had a flare up since he has been eating the same way since we got him in February/March. How do you evaluate the fat from the food analysis...

    Tis the season for Fire Works :(

    We are still 2 weeks away from July 4th and already people in our neighborhood are setting off fire works. I am so mad. Nala completely lost it last night while the people who live in the house behind us had a grand time making loud popping noises. We put the thunder shirt on her which...

    overly focusing on toys

    Our new boy Reo has this habit of refusing to make eye contact while he has a toy he wants to play with. If I touch the toy he gets even more excited and wants to play tug. We have tried treats, refusing to play but can't seem to get him to realease the toy or look at us for direction. If we...

    Tattoo'd Ear

    I was playing with Reo's ears today and noticed a green tatoo in his right ear of the number 10. Just curious if this is a normal breeder marking system for their pups? And if there is a way to tell who the breeder is?

    Reo is a 2yr old docked and cropped flashy fawn boy. He is full of energy. He acts like he has ants in his pant :lol: Nala is not quite sure if she likes all the extra energy he has. He is a good boy. Needs work but what boxer doesn't :D We brought him home to see how well he fits into...

    Possible new addition

    Oh my gosh I am a little excited. We have been looking for another boxer for awhile now. But every time I called I was always to late. Well last week I called about a young boxer boy almost 2yrs old and we got the call back saying that he was doing a trial at someone elses home :(. We...

    Feeling guilty (long sorry)

    About a month ago we found that we had a flea problem. We decided to go a more natural way of dealing with the little buggers (because of our pets sensitivities to pesticides) and was having great success. We thought we were done when all of a sudden more appeared :( We could not figure out...

    Training retaliation

    Well I decided it was time to take full control of our walk. Nala isn't a puller unless their are people or dogs she wants to great. Which of course is alot because people can't seem to ignore a boxer :) And of course she must be sociable and say hi to all. Well I decided what I wanted out...
