Even though this is the 3 tour for me, it is Alexandria's first and I think she is adjusting well in Stuttgart. Alex is a 29 month old female brindle boxer with a black mask and white socks. She was born in Dublin, Georgia, thus the name Alexandria of Dublin. Alex is very loving and does this neat paperclip bend and twirls around when she greets us everyday from work. Her only downfall is that she is so skidish and we don't know why. She loves the snow (which it has been doing for 3 days straight) and even will attempt to catch snowballs. I have another dog named Buster who is a cocker spanial and is very protective of Alex who outweighs him by almost 30 lbs! All of our children are on their own (well almost, we still send home apartment money for the youngest!) and these two dogs have become our 4-legged children. Our youngest daughter actually went to puppy training classes with Alex. I highly recommend to anyone never having a puppy before, spend the money and time. You won't regret it. We are still working on a few bad habits, like doing her whiny moose call when she is bored! And then there is her snorting back at us when she doesn't like something! What a character she is!
