    Thatcher is having a midlife crisis, he's got one of those "hey I'm kinda out of shape" realizations hitting him. She just runs circles around him and he knows it.
    This is really good for him in so many ways, exercise is definitely one of them!

    She gets scared at any loud noises, and any correction of anyone - the kids and Thatcher need to be corrected occasionally and this gets her worked up. We are trying to keep our corrections nice and quiet but she knows what's happening and it frightens her. She's very tuned in to everything, I know it's frightening to be taken from the place you grew up and planted somewhere new.

    Her previous family was an older retired couple, things were always very quiet. I doubt she ever saw another Boxer from the time she left her mother.

    In many ways she is absolutely fabulous, but she really has to catch up on socialization. We will be getting her out to experience some new things, I'm sure she will settle in and get used to her new surroundings.

    She seems to really love the freedom of getting to go out to the back yard and run and play keep away from Thatcher.
