    Allergic Reation !!!

    Our Milo has had reactions like this in the past. At first we thought it was food too. After several food changes, including BARF, it got no better, we finally had him allergy tested. Turns out he is severly allergic to all green plants. He now gets allergy shots every three weeks. We're...

    Internet sites for collars?

    I ordered collars from Karen's Kollars and I've been quite happy with them. She makes custom martingale collars for all kinds of site hounds, but she also had several pics of Boxers modeling collars. She makes them a little bit narrower for Boxers. Dang! I'll have to get a pic of my...

    protecting mommy

    Jingo does this too. I did some sewing for a friends wedding. The man I was sewing for had been over before, but my DH was home. When he came for the final fitting, it was just me, Jingo and Milo. As I did the final sewing, the man came upstairs and waited in the doorway and we talked...

    Who has a huge boxer?

    Gosh! Ours are runts compared to everyone listed above! Jingo our female is apx 42 lbs, Milo our male is apx 55-60 lbs. Both are within the height standards for the US. People almost always think Jingo is still a puppy. She's 3.5 years old and hasn't filled out. We work hard to keep...

    Off to the emergency room

    Yep, we've experienced it. Milo is severly allergic to all green plant life. Grass, bushes, weeds, trees, you name it. He get's allergy shots every three weeks. We had a hive break out about a month ago. We figure he ate something green that came up through the snow. Benydril did help, but...

    Need a GREAT training treat for boxer with allergies

    Slightly off topic... Doesn't it just crack you up when they'll do anything for a piece of X? Especially, when they basically swallow it whole? How do they even taste it? :lol:

    Are You Challenging Me?

    Our winters involve a lot of snow for several months on end. Milo and Jingo generally only go out to do their business along the poop-trail (they really don't wander of the "trail") and then they're quickly back in. However, every now and then, after they've done their business on opposit...

    I can rest now....

    When we come home after being away for the afternoon or something they're always so excited to see us but as soon as we settle down, they do too. In fact they're usually on our laps or smashed up as close as they can get to us on the couch and sound asleep in a deep sleep. Do you ever think...

    So what's better than a boxer??

    Our female, Jingo, is "a little bossy" too! Doesn't seem to bother our male, Milo, who we got via rescue. It bugs us more than Milo! :lol:

    What is your Boxer afraid of?

    Jingo: Anything that can make a clatter noise, ie. remote controls that fall on the floor or even fall together and clatter. While she doesn't exactly hate her crate, she has a real problem going over the threshhold of it - in or out. We have one baby gate permanently mounted and it swings...
