i have a boxer dog my self he has done well all his life because as my mum always says 2 me boxer dogs haven't usually that long to live but reggie he is nearly 10 now and as i say he has done wonderfully well for a boxer dog. reggie is like my flesh and blood i care the world for him sometimes i cry finking of bad thoughts about him like when he gets poorly will he die but my mum/dad will always say 'think positive' and that is what i usually do. thanks for reading kirsten denby aged 14

Hey Kirsten!

Cheers for stopping by, I popped over to your site and got a look Reggie and Pippi's photos.

Reg reminds me a lot of Jason. Except thathe has more whiteon his neck and Jason's a few years older. Doesn't look scarey at all. Looks like a big cuddle merchant.

I wouldn't worry too much you know. As I say he looks like Jason and if he's anything like him, he'll live for a few more years at least. :)

Take care,

Give the dogs a hug for me.

Paul

HI
JUST AN UP DATE ON ROXY. SHE IS LOTS OF FUN , HARD WORK [ IF SHE IS A WAKE IT IS PLAY TIME] AT THE MOMENT HER NAILS AND TEETH ARE VERY SHARP. SO WHEN SHE PLAYS IT'S SOMETIMES FUN FOR HER BUT NOT ME. HA
I ALSO GOT TO WATCH HER IN THE SUN, AS SHE IS WHITE, AND LOVES TO SIT OUT .
I HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT GETTING ANOTHER BOXER. NOT A PUP I WOULD LIKE TO GET ONE FROM THE RESCUE HOME. WHEN ROXY IS ABOUT 1 YEAR. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO. SHE DOES LOVE TO PLAY WITH OTHER DOGS. HOW MUCH HARDER WOULD IT BE TO HAVE TWO. EVERY ONE WITH TWO LET ME KNOW.

I cried when I read your site. It sounded like me talking about my Boxers. Ihad to put down my 9 year old male , Robbie just 10 weeks ago. It broke our hearts. Fortunately, we still have our darling girl,Scarlet, aged 10 now. No one knows quite how special a boxer is until they have owned one.....or rather, until they have owned you. We plan to replace our boy, as the only thing better than a boxer is two boxers.

Cerianne, definitely go for the 2nd dog!
I've alway's had 2 and, sure it's a bit more work, but it's a lot more fun. They're not alone when you're at work, and there's someone who can run as fast as them when you're out for walks. Watching the 2 of them playing when we're out always makes me smile. Mind you, if I had the space, and the money, I'd have a dozen !!

Thanks for the comments folks. It's allways nice to see more (Thanks Holly, Alison and Kim!) and good to see some old faces back. How you doing Steve and Cerianne?

Yeah I don't think 2 dogs is a lot more work than one. It can be sometimes but I've found it worth it. Like Anne and Steve said. It brings a whole new sort of enjoyment for yourself. Life, your house everything can seem very quiet when you go from two to one.

Speaking of two dogs. Looks like my brother will be getting a little sister for Murphy dog very soon. More news on that when there is some.

Love your site - the pictures are gorgeous. I have two boxers myself, Fudge who is one and we have had her since she was a puppy and Amber who we recently adopted from Boxer Welfare who is 2 and a half. No more work at all having two and they are great together.

Hi Paul and everyone, I haven't been in touch in a while, mad busy at work. My babies are great, we had Boris a year on Monday and my beautiful Suzy was dead one year on the 11th, still miss her, she certainly left a hole in our hearts. Anyway enough of that. Pixie is completely "mad", she hasn't quietened down at all, she wears Boris out, I don't know how he puts up with her at all she never leaves him alone. We were in Wales for my nephew's wedding a few weeks ago and my friend, Betty took the two of them for the weekend. Her son took loads of photos and in them all you can see is Boris looking very dignified and refined and Pixie, in the background, sticking her nose "and everything else" into everything, with that look on her face that says "I wonder what's in here, I haven't been in here yet". Anyway we love her and wouldn't change her for the world. Boris is just getting better and better, he is a great companion and the best dog ever. I think it's a good idea that your brother get a sister for Murphy it has worked out really well for us in any event. I will head off for now Paul, hugs to Jason. Bye for now, Margaret.

I have a boxer. We still call him "baby" which is irronic considering that he almost weighs 100lbs. He is, by far, the most sweet and generous creature I have ever encountered next to my wife. I am pleased to see that other boxer lovers out there understand just how amazing these animals are.

Hi Haley, so sorry to hear about Buster, I know that you are heart broken. We lost our little baby Suzy this time last year and thought that we would never get over it. I like you, just cried and cried, I thought that life just couldn't go on. Paul gave me great advice at the time "try to dwell on the good times and spend time with your family". Our solution might not suit everybody, Suzy died on the 11th and we acquired another beautiful baby Boris on the 14th August. Our house was so empty without Suzy that we just had to try and fill the spaces, Boris filled the spaces all right, it took a while for him to fill the spaces in our hearts but he did this too and it did not take that long. He is now just the perfect baby and we now have a little girl named Pixie just to make our family complete. Life is now good for us. I know that you can't see yourself in this position at the moment but I must say the old cliche is true "time is a great healer". Margaret

Hey Haley,

Sorry I've not been around and so sorry to hear you lost Buster. It's not much consolation but if you think on it Buster is ok. It's you who is suffering now.

Any suffering is beyond Buster now and with luck there's something better for him.

Like Margaret said you wouldn't trade what you had for anything and you'd do it all again even knowing that this would happen one day.

So from that perspective you've been very lucky to have had that one special dog in your life.

It may be too hard to remember right now but the memories will be with time good to look back on.

Just hang in there and try not to be alone too much, your family will be going through the same feelings.

Hey Margaret!

Glad to hear things are so good for you. If busy. You don;t have any pictures on the web of Pixie and Boris do you?

"Guest" Hello!

I'll let you into a secret, Jasons been called baby since he was a puppy too. Puppy sometimes too. You do get some funny looks if you come out with either phrase in public. :D

Hi Paul yes we have some beautiful pictures of Boris and Pixe most of which Betty took, would you like to see them? Margaret

Indeed, course I would Margaret. That would be great! :D

Is there an address I can go to or do they need to be emailed? If so you could use jasidog@gmail.com

Take care,

Hello. Great dogs you have had and have. Lots of heartache too. They dont live long enough. Had a red who had to be put to sleep at 7 and a white who had to be put to sleep at 6. Took me years to get over. No boxers for me at the moment.
Cheers. Paul

Thanks for the pictures Margaret, they were great! Sent you a email. :)

Hey Paul,

Thanks for stopping by. It is difficult but some live long lives (Comparatively.). My Jason is 13 now. :)

Maybe you'll get another one day, hope so. :)

Paul

Paul. You are lucky to have one to live to 13. My mum and dad had one till 10. That was good to me. Hope you get many more years from Jason. I thought i was going to be lucky with my white one "Ripley". He still looked like a puppy. But it wasnt to be. Cheers. Paul

#421 Paul

Sep 07, 2006 9:19am

Yeah it certainly seems to be the way unfortunately. Sorry about Ripley.

That being said out of the six I've had three made it past 10 though two of those were taken on in later life to start So I never had that much time with them.

I'm hoping to get a good deal more time from Jason. He's in pretty good nick except for his back legs.

Though I do worry about him alot and last night I got a scare. Couldn't sleep and went to the kitchen to get something to eat and drink.

Heard Jason getting up to see what was going on. He never misses opertunity for food. But then heard another sound and went to see what happened.

He was lying on the floor on his side. Consious but didn't seem to want to get up. I held him and he made an effort to get up I thought but then lay back down his head on my arm.

A few moments more and he seemed to want to try again and I helped him into a more dog like position on his tummy. At this point i also realised there was pee on the floor which he was now lying in. He sat there for a while then got up.

I opened the door to let some air in and he went out the back and did some buisness. By the time he was back in he seemed pretty much normal

I dunno what happened, I suppose he may just have fell, hurt himself, I've seen that happen a few times because of his back legs.

I think he probably had a small stroke or something though.

Like i say he seems to be ok now though :)

Ta for now!

Sep 08, 2006 7:25am

Oh poor Jason, I hope he is okay. My boxers are both quite young, Fudge who we've had since she was a baby is just over a year and Amber who we adopted from Boxer Welfare is 2 and a half, both girls who get on great and are great pals for my little boy! We are still having problems walking Amber, even with a halti!! Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Other than that she is perfect! Fudge walks to heel, but she has been to training since she was six months!! Dont know what to try next with Amber!

#423 paul adams

Sep 08, 2006 4:29pm

I hope Jason is ok Paul. You saying that brings it all back to me. We had the same a few times with our red boxer. He was always ok after but scared the life out of you. I was forever worried about him. Are you getting any more boxers? I think once you have had boxers no other dog can come close. Cheers mate. Paul

I don't think you ever fall out of love with Boxers once you have had one. I have had 3 - Ben the first was incredibly intelligent, a dark brindle and son of a world champion who grew up with our two boys. He looked after them and would have died for them. He lived until he was 13. The next Bodie was a red handsome chap who lved all people but despised all other dogs (probably because he lived with Ben for several years towards the end of Ben's life and Ben was the boss) He was a wonderful friend and companiion and lived till 12. Then we got Boris, a brindle handsome fellow who was for some reason nervous and extremely protective of me to the point of growling at anyone who spoke to me. He was the least trustworthy of any boxer I have ever known and we spent all our time being "careful" of him. Why he was like that was a mystery as we had him from 9 weeks and could never solve the problem. He only bit once (a postman) and it was at that time between a close family death and the funeral when the household was very upset (no excuse but possibly the reason) We are now boxer-less after 34 years of having one in the house and it is HORRIBLE. We are trying to decikde whether to plunge in again despite getting older. I think we will as there is such a gap.
