    She's A Real Tough Boxer (huh)

    Ever since ABBY got attacked in her own back yard she has been a little timid about going out after dark. Even though I have repaired the fence where two dogs tore under it, she still won't venture out to the that area after the sun has set unless I am with her. But never the less, at night when...

    Attacked!

    ABBY got attacked last Sunday night. I had let her go outside for awile, when I heard all this raucous out in my back yard. Apparently, there were two stray dogs, in my own back yard, attacking ABBY. One was a large, black and tan hound and the other was some kind of mixed breed dog that I've...

    'bam'!

    Early this morning at 4:30 o'clock a.m., ABBY woke me up needing to outside. It was one of those mornings where I could not go back to sleep, no matter what. So, I figured that I would just stay up, fire up my old computer, and mess around awile. I had let ABBY back in and fed her and she wanted...

    Hot! Hot! Hot!

    Well, guess what. My AC shot its wad and quit working last Sunday and it is 'HOT' inside my house. Poor ABBY just can't take it. I've got every fan that I own positioned in and around the house, but all they do is blow the hot air around. But, back to ABBY. She is so miserable. She just walks...

    She's Got Her Bark Back

    A couple of weeks ago I wrote a thread, commenting on ABBY losing her ability to bark. I guess I should have waited a few days before posting it though, because it was thank goodness, just a temporary thing with her. Now she has started barking at just about anything and everything and I can't...

    Lost her bark

    Have you ever heard of a Boxer that has lost their ability to bark. ABBY has just turned five years old and has lost hers. Whenever she tries to bark, she can only make what sounds like a high pitched 'eeurk'. She started doing it during the middle of last week, and at first I found it kind of...

    Scared S***less!

    Yesterday afternoon ABBY almost scared me to death. I was sitting in the living room watching the NASCAR race on tv, she was outside. All of a sudden I heard her start making horrible noise. It sounded like she was gagging and choking on something, trying to throw up. As soon as she noticed that...

    Snuff Dog

    ABBY has a new habit. I dip Copenhagen Snuff, and for last couple of weeks whenever she notices me reaching for the can to take a dip, she will always be right there behind me waiting to lick my fingers. I don''t know why she does it. But, it so funny to stand there and watch. She makes some of...

    Escape Artist

    Yesterday afternoon I was in the garage working on my riding lawnmower while ABBY was supposed to be out in the back yard. As I was squatting down at the mower, airing up the front right side tire, I saw this brown blur streak pass by the corner of the garage and the front end of my pick-up. I...

    Taking a Header

    This morning when I got up it had snowed overnight, as predicted. It was about 5:30 a.m. and still dark outside and what I couldn't realize was how deep the snow actually was. What I could tell that ABBY needed to go out really bad. So I opened the sliding door to let her out. Like I said, I had...

    My Up-Side Down Dog

    Earlier this morning ABBY pulled one her stunts has still has me wondering about her. When we got up I had let her out so she could take care of her business and I went about preparing her morning meal. My house now has a sliding glass patio door and screen that goes out on the back porch and...

    Flea and Tick Explosion

    It showered here Wednesday and Thursday nights and thanks to a cool front that blew in, the temparature didn't reach much above 85 degrees all day Friday. It sure made for a nice day, but man, did it make the number of fleas and ticks explode. And poor ABBY took the brunt of it all. I felt so...

    Having To Move

    I am going to be having to move this coming weekend after 18 years of living at/in the current house that in I now. I just was wondering if any of you who have Boxers have ever gone through the same type of situation and put my mind to ease about the whole ordeal. I am not concerned about...

    The Sneeze-Fart Attack

    Last night I had let ABBY outside for awhile before going to bed. When she came back in the house she started having this sneezing fit. It was just one sneeze after another and what made it so bad was that after each time she would sneeze, she would fart. And they weren't the silent ones either...

    Five Simple Rules

    Yesterday I received a an email from one of my friends titled "To the Pets in the House". I read it and then had bright idea of changing it around to make it fit just for Boxers. See if any of these rules could apply to your Boxers. Five Simple Rules for Your Boxer(s) to Follow (A...

    Warning-Don't Make This Mistake

    I am writing this thread as a warning as to what you all should never feed your Boxers. Believe me, I made the mistake. Last night I was thinking, well I really don't know what I was thinking. But anyway, I decided to cook up some home-made chili and thought that it tasted pretty good. So out of...

    Disowned by my Boxer

    Have you ever done anything where afterwards you've felt like your Boxer had disowned you? It happened to me yesterday. I had to attend family function and it was not a situation that where I thought ABBYs presence would be appropriate. One of my Aunt and Uncles were celebrating their 60th...

    "Where did all the grass go?"

    This morning when I awoke and looked outside, I noticed that it had snowed about two inches during the night and that it was continuing to fall at a pretty good clip. ABBY got up and was in a hurry to go out and take care of her business. When I opened the back door, she was already revving up...

    "Uh-Oh"

    I learned last night not ever use or say this word in front of ABBY again. Last night, I was in the kitchen trying to deep-fry some catfish nuggets for supper. ABBY, who is always at my heels when I'm cooking something, was standing there patiently waiting for me to drop a bite food. Everything...

    Changing of the Seasons

    I was wondering, have any of you ever experienced a change in your Boxers behaviour around this time of the year. Or, is it just me. Well let me say ABBY. She turned four years old back in the latter part of May this summer, and I thought that maybe this was reason that she was beginning to...
