Welcome from long island. Bailey was beautiful! The new pup is georgeous too! Yea I'm a repeat offender and probably will be all my life. Mo was my first dog and boxer. He does 3 years ago at12. Then we got Winnie a sr rescue. He recently passed. We got porter a year and a half ago. My husbands family always had boxers. They had 5 I believe. I was introduced to the breed when I started dating my husband with his family's boxer. I've been hooked ever since.

I got my first boxer through my husband. He brought him on our second date (20 years ago) and I still tease him that I married him for his dog! That was Buster-he died of cancer at 12. Then we got Milo as a puppy a week later. He just died this past fall of DM at 11. A week later we got Angus at 8 weeks. Through all of them we had a chihuahua that we lost at 17. Wish boxers lived that long!!
Enjoy that baby-so cute!

Welcome from Long Island NY


Bailey was pretty.

My first was also named Bailey. She was also a fawn female. I lost her early to kidney failure. I had to help her cross the bridge and like the way you felt I felt the same about my Bailey. It took 3 years for me to feel ok to get another and I wound up getting 2! Lol.

Your new little one ow gorgeous best of luck with him

Welcome from Oklahoma! I agree with Greg every dog is different some easier to train.

My first Boxer Gouda was a piece of cake! She was a quick learner, smart as a whip and a very easy keeper.

After she crossed the bridge last year from cancer I wasnt sure I would even get another dog let alone a Boxer, just because of the high risk of cancer and I didnt want to go through that again.

I now have Kippah a rescued 2yo and she and Gouda are about as opposite as night and day! Shes hard headed(hard to train), hyper as heck, and Im not sure I can ever trust her off leash or out of her crate when Im not home like I did with Gouda starting at about 1 yo. I absolutely LOVE Kippah and Im glad I rescued her...shes a great cuddler But I will say once you have had a "heart" dog like Gouda was to me I dont think any dog will ever compare. You love them of course, you are glad to have them, you just love them in a different way

I've found that Brandi has rapidly become my second heart dog Roxi was definitely my first but Brandi and I have formed a special bond of our own not sure if it is because she seemed to greive for Rox as much if not more than I did or if it is just her sweet self that I have fallen for but she has become my constant shadow and full time lap dog

Thank you for your post! Sounds like your family as well as your in-laws are VERY Boxer oriented. Because this is only my second Boxer Im very curious to see how this one will differ from my first. I imagine they are just like my human kids - some similarities some big differences.

Another Bailey the Boxer? I loved that name and it fit my dog so well. Everyone called her "Bay". Its to bad that you didn't have her longer but then no matter when they leave us Im sure it seems to soon. Your comment about feeling ok getting another Boxer hits close to home for me. We had talked about getting another Boxer over the past 10 years and it never felt right. Almost like I was betraying Bailey - I can't explain it. It was just me being silly I suppose. We ended up just getting other breeds that had that similar flat face that we love (ie Boston Terrier, Mastiff...) Now it feels ok and Im excited about having another Boxer to pal around with.

Gouda! I love that name!! What a great Boxer name!
Sorry to hear that you lost her! We unfortunately have a Boston Terrier who has had to have some tumors removed and while we don't know for sure at this point it looks like they may have been cancerous. We are hopeful but the Vet gave us the "She is a pretty old dog" comment which has us worried.

While Bailey was a tough puppy - by the time she was 2 I had a very well behaved dog. I rarely put her on a leash as she would walk beside me and a snap of my fingers would be all it took if she stopped or started to wander. Other than eating my wife's parakeet I don't think she ever misbehaved.

I have never heard the term "heart" dog before. Im pretty sure I know what you mean and have wondered about that... While you can't replace a dog that you lost, perhaps you can love another differently if not as much. Thank you for your post.

Well...be prepared because they are all different. My Mo was a cake walk. He never misbehaved, walked beside me, could have him off leash anywhere (not that we did). I think I'm getting payback with Porter. Ughhhh. Don't get me wrong, I love the little demon to death, but he is definately presenting more chanllenges. We just got home from obedience school.

I will second on how different each one is. I think I was spoiled with Pheona. Her & I bonded so quickly, she was a piece of cake to train, she listened. Murphy has her on agenda on everything. I love her to pieces but she drives me crazy sometimes.

I'm also a repeater. I lost my baby Charlie after 11 years. He was my best boy, my buddy, my life. I could honestly count on one hand the numbers of days we spent apart during his life. When I had to help him cross the Bridge, I felt like my life was over. I missed him every day. I cried every day.

It took about a year for another little sad pathetic baby to come into my life. I'm glad he did. He's very different form Charlie, but that's ok. It wouldn't be fair to him to compare him all the time to Charlie. He is Joey....and he's filled my heart again.

Congratulations on your new little guy. Of course, we require LOTS of pictures.
