It's a paw-ty!

We celebrated my sissy Cinderella's birthday this weekend. My aunt Joni (she was my foster mom back when I was an LBR foster dog!) came over, and Ella and I got to have yummy pupcakes! But first we had to pose for pictures.

Mom says sorry about the quality of the pictures -- she was picking up her camera to take the pictures and dropped it on the floor. Now it's broken and she is very sad. She had to take these with her camera phone, and it's just not the same.

Happy birthday, Cinderella! You're the best sissy ever. Thanks for sharing your pupcakes. :)

More Wags & Waves fun!

I wasn't the only LBR dog having fun at Wags & Waves last weekend! We had lots of alums stop by to play. Mom only got pictures of a few of them, but they sure all looked like they were having fun.

This is Maximus. He was an itty bitty puppy with a hurt paw when LBR first found him, but he's livin' large with his new daddy now!

Cleveland shares my thoughts on the Lazy River. This is a seriously freaky place. Really, WHY would you want to ride in one of those bouncy tube thingies on top of water?

This is my buddy Bevo. We had lots of fun playing in the wave pool together. He wasn't adopted through LBR, but he has an LBR alum sister and is a great foster brother to a bunch of LBR fosters.

Baxter knows he's handsome -- he's got the same awesome life jacket that I wore!

Tyson tried snorkeling, but I don't think he liked it very much!

I have more Wags & Waves pictures, but I wanted to take a moment to wish a very, very, very happy birthday to my favorite dog ever, my sissy Cinderella! She is eight years old today, and Mom and I love her very much. We're having her birthday pawty on Sunday, but I wanted to wish her a happy birthday today.

Wags & Waves FUN!

Wow, I'm so tired I can barely type this. I had a BLAST today, though! Mom and I went to this awesome thing called Wags & Waves. It's held at a local waterpark at the end of their season, and there are dogs everywhere. I'm not that much of a swimmer, but I have a lot of fun meeting the other doggies and splashing around. I have a whole bunch of pictures to share, but to start off, here's a few shots of my epic swim adventure.

Here I am surveying my kingdom.

Still, I wasn't real sure if I wanted to go in at first.

This water stuff is pretty intimidating in large doses!

But I'm brave and fearless, at least when I really HAVE to be.

But wow, this is actually pretty fun after a while!

Next time I'll show you some of the great new friends I made, then show you a little of the fun other LBR dogs had. If you have something like this in your area, be sure to tell your mom or dad that you want to go! It's SO much fun!

Keebler gets a Clue!

LBR alum Keebler was feeling sad because his foster brother Midas was adopted and he was all alone with his dad. But fortunately, he gets to have a new playmate for a while, because his dad is foster-sitting 11-week-old Clue!

Keebler's been teaching Clue all about playing with toys.

And Clue's been teaching Keebler to DUCK!

Eeek, baby-eaters!

There's one strange thing that I've learned since I started working as an official Boxer Ambassador for LBR. Boxers eat babies. I know, it sounds shocking! Here I always thought boxers were awesome with children and were wonderful family dogs. But we hear it all the time -- "I'm having a baby, so I have to give my dog up." Not because the dog's shown any kind of aggression or anything, but just because everyone inherently Knows the truth.

So I've gone digging through my archives, and I was just shocked at how many pictures I found that prove it! Boxers should clearly never be allowed around children. Why, just look at Bonsai and his skin-brother Deacon! He's preparing to snap at any minute.

Winston obviously likes to tenderize his victims before going in for the kill.

Tyson may look little, but look at how he took down that human!

Remington likes to go for the straight-forward attack.

And look at Noel here, clearly planning to strike at any moment.

Maximus prefers the smothering attack.

Maggie Mae and Mulligan like getting a little appetizer before going in for the whole baby.

Obviously Jack decided he might want a little midnight snack.

Ranger is lulling his victim in with some Southern charm first before the attack.

You can just see the hunger lurking in Bubbles' eyes, can't you?

Brooklyn only eats babies on special occasions.

Ack, look out, BJ is already ready to taste that poor human!

Beauregard is taking his snack to go.

And finally, Gabriel may be just 5 minutes old, but he's clearly planning from a young age how to go for the jugular!

I hope this was as eye-opening for you as it was for me. I'm just shocked that so many of my fellow boxers would behave like this around children. Now you know the truth! I hope these poor little humans can someday get over the fear and terror that their boxer experiences must have caused.

Woof! Sorry I've been so quiet lately, but my typist claims she's been really busy at that "work" thing she claims to go to. Yeah, yeah, I know she spends all day lounging around somewhere eating bonbons without us. Hrmph!

Well, as repayment, I'll show you some super-cute pictures of a pair of best buds -- Ami and Talamo.

These guys have a real "bromance" going. They're best friends and just love to play all day!

They even know how to share!

The really neat part? Talamo, the flashy fawn boy, was deemed a "man eater" by the shelter and they said he was dangerous. Ami, the brindle, was so scared when he first went to his foster home he shook 24/7 and refused to eat or drink for more than 4 days. He didn't eat regular meals for over a week.

Now they say they'll be friends forever. Or at least while they both look for their awesome furever homes.

Don't YOU want to make a difference like this? The feeling in your heart as you watch them transform to happy healthy dogs is SO rewarding. (And speaking from the dog's side, it's pretty pawesome too!) Go to Legacy Boxer Rescue to apply to adopt one of our amazing dogs or become a foster home!
