Best Tricks: Walking on 2 legs or saying "mama" to go outside.
Arrival Story: Right before Christmas of 2004 our family sadly made the difficult decision of having our first boxer boy, "Butch" put down. Butch's health had been declining for sometime due to bladder cancer. With Butch, we became total and complete boxer fans. He was and is a 1 in a million dog. I can honestly say he was our best friend.
"Jack" came into our lives as a wonderful surprise a few months after Butch passed on due to a wonderful friend who felt we needed a new best buddy to share our life with. Due to a chance meeting, our friend met one of the area football coaches whose boxers had recently had a litter. The friend told him about our family and how much we missed Butch . A plan was concocted. We received a call late one afternoon telling us to meet our friend at her parents home because she had a surprise for us. There we got to meet the sweetest and silliest little girl - our Jack!
She was all legs and full of kisses. We welcomed her immediatly with open arms. The only thing we had to promise was not to change her name. The coach had named her "jack daniels" because that is the color of her coat, a beautiful tennesee color.
Bio: Jack is sweet, silly and such a character at times - hence her secondary or umm middle name "dorkerlla". She'll jump up and walk on 2 legs for a treat, say "mama" when she wants to go out, and snores like a harley engine.
Jack is a dominate but loves to play with the other dogs on the block. We learned to put child guards on the cabinets because we found out she likes to have breakfast cereal breaks from time to time. No matter the trouble she gets in - you just can't stay mad at her once she give you that goofy boxer pitiful look. (we suspect she practices this in the mirror when we aren't looking). She loves her best bud and honey, Capone and became a "mommy" this past December to a whopping litter of 9! We were so proud of what a grreat mom she turned out to be- even let "dad" help out with all the pups.

I'm stumped... I don't know what happened! I was playing with my kids having a nice spring day - when all of a sudden mom said "oh dear God!" and they were making phone calls, getting my leash and out to the car. Daddy came home and met us in the driveway and we went for a ride. I thought I was having fun... but then we went to this place with all sorts of new people and smells. They took me away and gave me something that made me sleepy and then they were poking me about a bit. Next thing I knew they tried putting on this THIS HAT THING~!~ I hated it and flung it across the room!!! But the peoples wouldn't take no for an answer and put it back on me and did something so it won't come off. :(
What I didn't realize is that when I playing , I must have run into something and gashed the inside of my leg. Mom, dad and skin sis took me to the special hospital and I got 3 inches worth of stitches. I swear I didn't even feel it and it really didn't bleed at all so right now I am just drowsy and not like this hat.. or as my skin kids say "the cone of shame" one bit. ::::Sigh::::
We has sooo much fun this weekend. Mom made us some steak snacks and and and...... then mom and dad and our skin sis took us for a real long walk to the park to see a car show. Well we got there to late for the car show - but that's ok cause the walk was the bomb!
There were so many fun smells and other doggies we passed by it was GGGGrrrrrEAT!;c;
Why oh why oh why do mom and dad persist in this nail trimming thing? They say it good for me ... ummm yeah right it makes me squirly and quesy inside... They say it makes me pretty... um hello??? While I know I'm a gorgeous gal... I don't think I need any help... what's wrong with the "A LA NATURAL" look?
Well, anyhoo the folks got this new buzzing thangy. I have to admit it is a little wee bit less stressful. I am just sooo scared that I will get a toe pinched with the clipper things, that I don't want anyone to be near my tender paws. Well as long as dad is petting me and telling me what a great gal I am, I will suffer mom giving me a manicure and pedi. I won't like it! - - but I guess I can tolerate it.
Now baths are another thing.. don't get me started!
