I report, you decide!

Hey there, folks, Reporter Case-ster checking in with all of you for a very important news story. There's something I've reported on a few times in the past as part of my role as Boxer Ambassador, and it seems the problem just keeps recurring.

See, as a rescue group, Legacy Boxer Rescue doesn't just find new homes for dogs. We get dogs from somewhere, after all! So there are dogs surrendered to us and to shelters, and we hear all sorts of reasons for it. And one in particular really scares me -- apparently, boxers eat babies!  I know, I know, I could hardly believe it at first, but we hear all the time, "We just love Fuzzums so much, but we're having a baby and he has to go." Yup, there's no point even risking seeing how the dog handles the new arrival, because everyone knows it's just a matter of time before he starts eying that kid as a snack.

But then I started thinking -- where did this horrible plague come from? I mean, there aren't any baby humans at my house, but my Aunt Joni brings them to visit me a lot, and it's so much fun licking the crumbs off their hands and hearing them giggle when I play. And when they start to get older and can play with me, oh my dogness, it's so much FUN!!  So I've done an exhaustive survey of LBR fosters and alums to find out if this baby-eating plague is really so prevalent. And because I'm a completely non-biased, professional journalist, I'm not going to present a conclusion. I'm just going to give you the facts, and you decide.

Baby-eaters or baby sitters?

LBR foster Bernie -- bedtime stories or bedtime snack?
LBR alum Bo -- kisses or taste-testing?

 LBR foster Buttons -- is he helping with homework, or reading a recipe?

LBR alum Elka taking her children for a car ride, or picking up dinner?

LBR alum Harlee

LBR foster Heidi in a sneak attack

LBR alum Jake (He's the one on the right)

LBR foster Leddy keeping her boy warm . . . but for what purpose?

LBR alums Nike, Beau, and LeeBoy keeping close watch on their charge -- or their snack!

LBR alum Piper

LBR alum Rebel is not letting that baby out of her sight.

LBR foster Rosalie

LBR alum Tulip is starting young!

Well, there you have it! Only the highest journalistic standards from LBR, I promise! So what's your verdict? Is there any hope for boxers as family dogs, or should we just admit they're all baby-eaters after all?

Morning Case-ter
Well it is crystal clear to me that Boxers are Babysitters. Mom says there are no bad animals just bad owners.

Did you know there is a myth about cats smothering babies because they smell milk on the baby's breath and are trying to get to it. TOTALLY unfair.

My boxer friend Charlie LOVES his kids. Maybe he's waiting for a sneak attack to eat them? I don't know but he sure likes playing with his human brother and new baby sister.

We always just assumed (based on Charlie) that boxers were really big lap dogs who also loved kids.

I LOVE childrens. They wear diapers and they smell soooooo good! Sometimes I get sooo excited about seeing one that I over-wiggle and knock them down. On the upside, it makes it easier for me to lick them and cover them with my slobber!!


Casey said...

I hear ya, buddy! I have that over-wiggling problem myself sometimes. It's just so hard to restrain myself! I want to KISS!

Mom's family had a boxer when mom was an itty bitty human pup, and mom says boxers are GREAT family dogs. Their boxer was named Pow Wow and she was as sweet as she could be. When she was happy, she wiggled her whole body! Mom says she can still remember how soft Pow Wow's fur was, because mom spent lots of time petting her. We think the baby-eating-boxer reports are one of those urban myth things maybe.

I heard that babies are the other white meat, but I think that's all talk! Everybody knows that's really squirrel! Boxers and babies look like a perfect match to me!
