Boxer News

We have lots of awesome Boxer News to report to you! And who is better to do the telling than one of your old friends, Muffy.  Muffy Lin has been itching to get back at the ‘puter and type away.  Take it away, Muffin!

Hi, Muffy here! Yep, that’s me in the picture with my latest godpuppy, GQ.  I know. I know.  Things have changed a lot from my show days …

Boxer news

Although my face may be silver now, I still have a heart of gold.  It’s been almost five years since I finished my Grand Champion title.  My mom said that maybe I can show in the Veteran’s class this fall…if I lose a little weight! Like don’t we all need to???

I do have some BIG news to report about my son, Jackie.  Jackie just finished winning back-to-back Best of Breeds in Ohio.  But more importantly, he earned his Canine Good Citizen title AND he passed his therapy dog test.  He will be visiting nursing homes and hospitals.  Here he is, with a couple of his therapy dog classmates.

Boxer News

And here he is, looking gorgeous! Of course, I am a little biased, since I am his mom.

Boxer NewsLexi has been away since last October.  She’s staying in Texas with her co-owner, Rhonda.  Rhonda used to be my handler until she moved to Texas.  Rhonda wanted some Lexi babies to carry on her kennel’s bloodline.  Hopefully, I will be an aunt sometime in June…but Rhonda isn’t sure. Here’s Lexi struttin’ her stuff at the ranch.  I don’t think she has any puppies in there, do you? That girl needs to eat like I eat, and put a little meat on those bones.

Boxer NewsMom is afraid Lexi is not going to want to come back to Iowa.  Her house yard is 3-1/2 acres.  She gets to ride in a pick up truck to check on cattle AND she gets to go on horse back rides.  Well, she trots beside the horse while Rhonda rides, but it still sounds like fun to me.

My beautiful daughter, Kia, is enjoying life in Seattle with Brady the Boy.

Boxer News

She takes Brady on hikes, and carries all of her own stuff in her back pack.  She is leading quite the life.  I think she is a wee bit spoiled.  Here she is walking on one of the trails in Washington:

And here she is with Brady’s friend, Korin.  (Brody the Boxer calls her “Korn”.  He is still so silly.) Korin plays an instrument called a “viola”.  I only know trumpets, because that is what Brady the Boy plays. Mom said it has strings on it.  Maybe it is like Brady the Boy’s guitar.  It has strings.  He left it here when he moved to Seattle.  It’s on a stand in the guest room.  I play it with my nose sometimes.  I wonder if  Korin plays her viola with her nose…but I digress.

Boxer News

Little GQ had a wonderful time at his first dog show.  Mom didn’t mess around with sending him to a little show for his first time out.  He went straight to our National Boxer show.  Even I have not been to THAT show…although Jackie has.

Little Q won his Futurity class.  I’m not quite sure what that is, but Mom said he showed against all the other little 6 to 9 Month Puppy boys that were there…and he WON!!! I didn’t tell him it was a big deal.  He already thinks he is pretty special.  But he is pretty dang cute, don’t you think? I told him all about dog shows, and how important it is to hold his neck like that, and how to hold his tail up.

Boxer NewsAt the end of the day, though, he is just an ordinary puppy boy who loves to snuggle with this old girl.

Boxer News

And finally there is my dear brother, Brody the Boxer (not to be confused with Brady the Boy).  You might remember that over a year ago he was diagnosed with bladder cancer. Well…he just had his latest tests, and the amount of blood in his urine is not increasing. It’s not decreasing…but it is not increasing.  Mom has done a lot of special things for him.  He eats a special diet and gets special herbs and oils and stuff.  There is one more test they could do, but it costs a lot of money.  Mom talked it over with the vet, and they just decided to do what they have been doing.  He does get a special medicine every night.  He gets it in a “Pill Pocket”.  Mom gives me an empty Pill Pocket so I don’t feel left out, and so Brody doesn’t feel badly that he has to take medicine.  In the meantime, we just count every day with him as a blessing.
