Is My Boxer Dog What He Eats
Standing In The Sun
I had my first Boxer dog in the early fifties . I was so mad at my Dad for bringing this excited animal into our house. As I was a big fan of German shepherds!
I ignored him for a while which just made him follow me everywhere. I mean everywhere. He used to come to the cinema with our gang, into Indian restaurants, pubs. I even took him to Jersey, c.i. without any lead. Leads were never used in those days!
We travelled by bus to the Manchester train station then to London, and from there to Weymouth for the channel crossing. Almost everyone of the travellers ( A lot of honeymooners in those days going to Jersey for honeymoon tax rebates) made a big,big fuss of him.
Home Made Food
He was fed mainly by my Mothers home made food(good grub). My Dad used to take him miles along the beach so he was very well exercised especially plenty of sea swimming. He was the most brilliant Boxer ever. He died aged 14 years. He was in excellent health and died very suddenly . It is only in the last few years that I realized after going over his old pedigree that he was a dog of quite some importance ! Anyway to us he was our first love and gave us all many laughs and much happiness.
When you get hooked on a Boxer that's it ! Your hooked for life. It's a kind of drug.
I think if you can find a good vegetarian base food for your dog and supplement it with fish or chicken or eggs you won't go far wrong. If you can put some crushed
garlic in the dogs dinner it will help. i.e fleas etc.
If I sometimes use a complete food I always soak it in either soup or cold water,if you soak it in hot water it just goes sticky. I discovered early on that my dogs have suffered from dribbling and hiccups if I don't soak their dry food.
I have had many Boxer dogs in my life,usually have 3or 4 at a time as it so unbearable when their time comes....My beautiful Bella died when only 12 years she suffered from kidney probs. All of the others lived until 15 and Ben 16..
I swear by lots of interesting exercise for them and me !

- Wuf ! Wuf ! Who wouldn't have a dog ? Why ?
Life without a Dog or Dogs would be unbearable which is why I have Dogs,Boxer Dogs. I have them for selfish reasons as they keep me healthy,six to ten miles a day easily. They keep me safe, wouldn't care to walk in the park at midnight without a dog
