thanks so much! Thanks for all the nice compliments on our Dieter. It's true, he does give us sooo much in return for so little. To answer your question Tanya22, we're not sure how old he is... He was so skinny when we got him, we weren't sure if he just needed to gain weight or if he still had some filling out to do. Mid Mich Boxer Rescue figured he was under 1 year old when we adopted him, which would make him about 2 now. Our trainer thought he was older, more like 2-3, and our vet guessed he was about 2 when he first saw him. We just decided he was 1 when we got him and made his adoption day his birthday. Sometimes I think he's quite a bit older because his bones crack a lot when he sits (a question for the vet on our upcoming appt), and he's gotten quite a few new gray hairs on his body. So, who knows?! Come Feb. 7, in general, he'll be 2 years old. Oh, and, way to educate 'em, Jenni! How long have you had Layla?
