Puppy Boxer is Growing Up!

Our boxer puppy is our first foray into the world of larger dogs.  I had several types of terriers growing up ... my husband's family had dachshunds and a beagle in his growing up years.  Our first dog as a married couple -- who is still with us -- is a Cairn Terrier (like Toto on the "Wizard of Oz," only blonde, not black).  So ... the world of big dogs is a new one for us.

First, I am amazed at the rate of growth!  I think sometimes Leo has grown during a single nap!  He is still a wonderful pet, mild-tempered, obedient, and sweet as pie ... but BIG ... and growing!

Leo is fabulous with our boys.

    Boxers are such awesome dogs! Especially with kids. We had 5 when I was growing up. . . I hope you enjoy every day with Leo!

  2. Wow - he's getting so big! What a cute face he has! We have an Irish Wolfhound and a min. schnauzer, and the size difference is humerous. Ironically, the little dog runs the show around here.
