Quote from Frau Stockmann’s book “My Life with Boxers”..”The Boxer, however, is a gentleman amongst dogs with short coats. He not only wants the best food, he wants to be handled in a civilized manner too. He can easily be upset by his master & this is called being leader-sensitive. He cannot stand a hard hand or injustice. It is true that every one has a personality of its own. His real job is to be a house & family dog and to be a friend to the children.”

First Attempt

I started sketching recently as a way to relax and wind down at the end of the day and also to keep my granddaughter amused while she visits. I’m working on cartoons, caricatures, and a few animals - and lots of sponge bobs.  This was my first attempt at sketching Rocky - one of our two and half boxers.  I hope to improve and come back and do it again some day to see how much I improve, but my first attempt is pretty good, I think.

B.B. (the Borrowed Boxer) has on her Team Candice shirt for the fundraiser for her human mom this past Saturday.  The Helping Hand Poker Run - Team Candice was a huge success!!!  A horrific car accident left Candice a quadriplegic on March 30th of this year and I have had the pleasure of having B.B. at my farm with my two boxer boys, Rocky & Reagan.  She was able to visit with Brayden (B.B.) on Saturday after the poker run and B.B. showered her face wtih kisses upon kisses upon kisses. Nearly 3 months of not seeing each other brought tears to my eyes and I’m so relieved that they were finally reunited - even if only for a short time. B.B. gets to stay on the farm with us for a while longer while Candice continues to adjust to her new life. If you see a fundraiser for a paralyzed victim, please share your good fortune to help that person regain some semblance of a normal life through medical equipment or life adjusting needs.  It’s so worth it!!!
