So glad you got around to introducing yourself...Welcome to the forum. You have had an interesting life and I am very sorry about your brother, but kudos to you for changing his mind about boxers!!!  :)  And it sounds like he's going to get one also, which I think is great...

Thanks for joining our little family and we'd love some pictures of the dashing Voltaire....I love that name...

Hi, welcome to Boxer Forums!  :)
Sorry to hear the news about your brother. My dad also had a brain tumor, but unfortunately his was inoperable. It is a horrible thing to go through. I'm pretty sure my last boxer, Buster had one also. I never had an MRI done on him, so I really will never know. He had all the signs of one. It was kind of spooky seeing my dad go through it, and then watching my dog have the same symptoms my dad had. Really weird. Sounds like your brother is getting excellent care. I think a boxer would definitely help boost his morale and happiness.
Again, welcome!

Thanks for the welcome, I have done an album- you'll see Voltaire has a very flat face - the muzzle is very short - it must be a european trait! I'd love to be able to have two three or even four boxers like some of you are lucky enough to have. And seeing all those puppies is just so tempting - like being on a diet and getting people sending pictures of cheesecake non-stop! And i imagine being a boxer breeder is the best job in the world (except i'd want to keep 'em all)!

Hello Tootsie, Sorry about your Dad. And sorry about Buster. It's so hard to go through for everyone. Each day Kev's still around is a good day. And i treasure the time he has left.  I'm hoping for at least a few years. He didn't get any symptoms till he was in the US and the tumor was already 5cm by 7cm. They got 90% out but if you've gone through it you'll know that cancer is cancer and when it's an agressive one it's never good. But i'm sure he can still have a maximum of joy in his life however long or short and a boxer will bring him that as well as his lovely wife. She's a star.

Hi Beckhamboxer - i've enjoyed your photos! I'm about 60miles south of Paris (about an hours drive). And in England my parents live in the south west in Somerset. I was born in Bath - if you ever visited? Very beautiful city. (It's called a city but americans would consider it tiny!)

No, I've never been to bath but ALWAYS wanted to go!  We stayed in London for about a week and Old Paris (Montemartre) for a week also. I totally fell in love with Montemartre, it was so amazing.  I definitely need to go back! :)

It does have it's charm! Great views from up there. I'm a bit of a countryside lover myself and hardly ever make the effort to go to Paris. But i admit when the weather's nice you can enjoy just walking aroud all day. The atmosphere's special. My brother's more of a traveller - before Saint Louis he was in Toulouse (south of France for a year) and before that 2 years in Paris. He loved Paris. It's kind of small. He says Saint Louis is Big and very built up so you have to go miles to get into the countryside. His favourite american thing is Whole Foods Market! As well as the americans! Where are you from if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks Chloesmom, I think doctors should prescribe boxers. I hope he will be able to get one and that his wife (a golden retriever lover) will let him!

don't mind at all! I live in Minnesota (southern, it's really not as cold here as everyone thinks!), about 18 miles from downtown Minneapolis, where I work.  I really love the Twin Cities.

Tink loves to sunbathe too... when it's not raining, that is  :D

This summer is supposed to very hot (well by Irish standards, anyway) so I'll have to be careful she doesn't get a sunburn.

This is her basking in a bit of sun shining on the couch...

What a sun worshipper! That photo's a beaut! As for the rain, Voltaire pretends not to hear me & be asleep for his last wee of the day if it's raining out. He'd rather stay with a full bladder for 8 hours than get a bit wet of an evening!

Voltaire is definitely a surrogate baby for me...and they love being treated like babies. Never happier than snoring in your arms all four legs pointing skywards whilst you give them cuddles. I've turned mine into a bit of a wuss though!
