    How thin should an 8 weaker be?

    Izzy was only 7 pounds at 10 weeks old. I think boxers can be thin at times, but as long as she doesnt look like Izzy did, I am sure she will be fine and fill out. Izzy is doing great now, but I was worried for a while. I would also switch to a better quality food. Keep us posted. skinny...

    How does your boxer sleep ?

    Izzy and Gus both sleep in my bed, and are the biggest bed hogs! I guess thats normal for a boxer from reading others posts :lol: I usually wake up on the edge of the bed. If I am on my side, usually Gus is all stretched out and against my back, leaning into me. I think he is actually almost on...

    boxers in the bathroom

    Gus will follow me in and sit on my feet :lol: He will also lean against the shower doors when I am showering, and sometimes will stand and stare and try to see thru the door. Izzy will walk in when I am on the toilet, but doesn't stay long. Its a game for them that I started a few years ago...

    Gus got another raccoon!!

    It was probably 2 years ago when Gus caught and killed a raccoon. That one bit him in the mouth, but other than that, he was fine. Well, tonight, I had them in the backyard with me, while I was scrubbing litter pans. I looked up because I could see both of them out of the corner of my eye and...

    Healing vibes for Gus

    Gus has still been coughing a lot on the cough suppresant. He is sleeping now, so hopefully he does all night and no more episodes during the night so we BOTH can sleep. He did finally eat tonight when I put some canned food on his dry food. He hasn't really been drinking much water today. He...

    Healing vibes for Gus

    I started to research online and am now wondering if its something else. His cough is a little different sometimes, it sounds almost like a goose "honk". I read that can be tracheal collapse, a congentital issue and doesn't usually show up until they are older. He is 4.5 yrs old. It said it was...
