My boxer babies are my favorite things in the world and I absolutely love them. The other day I was thinking about everything I’ve taught them, but then I realized how much they’ve been “teaching” me. You’d be lying if you said none of these were true for you
#1: Are you ready for a hike? I’m always ready for a hike and I’ll let you know.
#2- I’m gentle and always looking for new friends, take me somewhere to meet them!
#3- Don’t expect me to always stay out of trouble, and don’t get too mad when you catch me. Let me say sorry in advance.
#4- Don’t torture me in a bath. Water is for drinking only!
#5- I don’t like to be dressed, please leave me naked. I’m happier this way.
#6- I can and WILL fall asleep anywhere I want.
#7- You need to be home when it thunders. I need someone to protect me from the noises!
#8- No, I don’t need less toys. In fact, I need more.
#9- Don’t worry, I’ll let you know when someone is at the door. Or when someone is walking by the house. Or when a squirrel runs up a tree. Or when the wind blows a leaf.
#10- We always share food, even if it’s just a little bite. (Hint: Try these treats if my breath smells bad)
#11- When we go on walks, we are going where I want to go, not the other way around!
#12- Belly rubs are required at least once a day, preferably more.
#13- I always get shotgun when we go out. And open the window when we pull out.
#14- I’m allowed to go inside and outside as many times as I want in a day, even if I was just out 5 minutes ago.
