    How clean a belly button?

    While Gunther was rolling in the grass, I noticed his belly button looked dirty and a little red. I used just a wash cloth and warm water to wipe it clean and that seem to cause an itch as it made his back leg thump like crazy. I didn't want to press too hard and I don't feel I was able to...

    waiting on results of having bump aspirated

    Hi all, Gunther had his lump tested last evening. The Vet said she saw graininess, but this appeared more "around" the cells than the cells themselves. So, she sent the test samples to a pathology lab to test further. I don't know what she meantby gaininess. Does anyone else? I tried to...

    Boxer kills 4 yr old girl in Wisconsin 8/26

    Has anyone heard about this? I'm particularly interested in hearing from those folks knowledgable/trained in dog behavior that might weigh in on how this could have occurred. The news articles say the dog had never shown aggression previously and had been with girl on other occasions without...

    supplements for heart murmur?

    The vet detected a heart murmur yesterday when I took Gunther in for routine work. She recommended Royal Canin as it has something in it to help heart conditions in boxers. I just read the posts on Royal Canin and none were favorable. That being said, are there any suppliments/vitamins that...

    The concrete man's story, sad but heroic.

    The BF had a concrete guy come by this past Saturday to give a quote on putting in a porch. Turns out the guy used to breed and train boxers for show. He told the story of one of his young boxers, a couple years old, as sweet as they come. Not a bad bone in his boxer body. Well, one night...

    Scooter pooper or a squatter pooper?

    Does your boxer scoot about when doing his/her business, leaving a little trail? Or doe she/he squat in place until business is finished? I have one of each. Gunther likes to leave a trail and Max squats low and doesn't move much until business is done. It's easier to pick up after a...

    Food Tubes

    Has anyone used food tubes for dispensing treats while training? I was wondering how convenient they are and it they work well with a dog who gets a bit excited about treats in the hand (not always as gentle as he should be)

    My new boy, Max

    I see that my photo's have been approved in my gallery. I wanted to wait for them before I introducing Max, whom I adopted on July 6th, so it's only been about month so far. He is 16 months and a real joy for the entire family. The first 48 hours of having him home were a bit overwhelming and...
