As many of you may know,  I am the new momma to Fiona.  She is only 3 1/2 months old and she is our first boxer.  We have been lab owners in the past.
My husband has nicknamed her "Butter Bean", because when she sees you and gets all happy, she folds up in a semi-circle.  Her head is almost always back by her nub of a tail.  Is this a common trait for boxers?  It is the cutest thing.

Very common for Boxers.   Many call it the "C" or Kidney bean.  Boxers are very energetic dogs and stay that way for years....the puppy stage can last years!  :D   Most of ours started to out grow the puppy stage around 5 years old.

Both my boxers do it, it's adorable!! Layla wiggles so much she can hardly get to you to greet you. I think that makes boxers so special.

Littlefoot does it all the time. When my husband or I come home it is rather funny to watch because she will run with her butt next to her head and almost be falling over. I love when she "wiggle butts".
