My Sweet Annie

I just had to share these precious pictures with you guys. Annie just turned 7 on October 5th. She is such a sweet and caring dog. She is the one, some of you might remember, that sleeps at Abby's feet when she is over and does NOT leave the bed until my precious is up. Most nights she sleeps part of the night with her daddy the rest (the early morning time so she's there when I wake up) of the time with her momma. I really do think she is absolutely the sweetest and best dog I have had the privilege of sharing my life with.

Hi Dad!

How can anyone resist that face? I know, some people think that the boxer breed is ugly. I say everyone has a right to their opinion but they are wrong....lol Boxers, the clown of all the dog breeds. Puppies until they pass away.



I love this dog more than I have ever loved another. Joe feels the same way. And to think that at first Joe didn't want a big dog much less one in the house..................hahahahahahahahaha. It didn't take him long to realize why I love the breed so very much.



Look how she takes care of Sophie cleaning her ears and such.

How sweet is that? I know that some people don't like big dogs and/or are afraid of dogs. But if they could just meet this bundle of love in person and feel how soft her fur is and how warm her kisses are perhaps it might help them to feel more calm. If I could bottle what this dog gives to me and my family and pour it into the water system for the entire world there would be no more wars, no more hate, no more fighting. Just love for everyone else because that is what Annie gives to our family. And I wouldn't trade it for anything on Earth.

Bottle it? Honey I don't think they make bottles that big. I make fun of our boxer girl. Her butt wiggles of happiness are so big I call them "jazz hands" boxer butt style. It's the only way I've been able to describe that volume of happy!

I think Boxers are very cute! We are getting a bulldog which is funky looking. It's my husband's dream!! Happy late Birthday Annie. I love big dogs.

Who thinks the Boxer Breed is ugly??? Lemme at 'em! I feel the same way about my Penny. She a BoxerX in lineage but 100% Boxer in personality. Lola showed me that.

I just want to grab Annie's big jowls and give her a giant smooch!

Jen, I'll give her a giant smooch for you. She doesn't care who the kiss is from as long as she gets one!

I think that Annie is special. What a great face! Dogs are special and the people who love dogs are also special.

I can hear how special Annie is in how you write about her. I honestly have never known a boxer in real life! (Not in fake life either, ha ha!) I think they always look so....smooth and soft to the touch, and very muscular. And yours look like they have a zest for life and are very sweet and spoiled members of your family!

Annie is watching TV, but she doesnt like the program and wants you to change the channel.
I just read your blessings list and am so happy that you had a hair follicle problem. That didnt sound right. Sorry. You know what i mean.
May God bless you.
Did you change the channel for Annie?

I love boxers!

I've lost the KONG! My puppy is going crazy without it in the mornings.

Awwww! I had an interesting experience the other day. My hubby is always playing grabbing the dogs fangs. I always tell him to stop it! Then the other day I was walking her in the park and this little boy came up and wanted to pet her. He stuck his hand right in her mouth and was pulling on her fangs! Saying "boy she sure has big teeth!" She just sat there and let him do it. I think Annie has a sweet Momma face. You cannot judge dogs by their looks any more than you can humans. Have a great day!

I love this dog and I want her to marry Theo and come live at my house.

Paige said...

I think they are both beautiful girls and the way you love them sounds like how I feel about my big dogs.

If only people were as good
