Boxer Dogs

You might be asking, what is it?

I do not know if she has always done this, but I saw it happen for the first time several days ago. Tyra, my oldest boxer, takes a few morsels of her morning kibble out of her bowl and carries it to the laundry room floor. She plants her feet in front of the bits of kibble, and pretends to pounce around it, as if she were playing with a bug, teasing.

This morning I looked across the room and saw a smiley face. I know, it is not unlike the faces seen in the clouds, or in growth patterns in a tree, images that just look like something else, but none the less, her kibble was smiling this morning. It certainly made me smile!

Tyra is 6 years old, turning gray in the face, a big solid girl, one that likes to play, and sounds vicious when she does, but she would never hurt a soul. We rescued her when she was 9 months old. She has had 2 litters of pups for us, 10 pups each. She is now retired.

Here is our faithful friend...

What a cute pooch Mary. Never noticed my dogs doing that but the Jack Russell takes a mouthful of biscuit sout of the bowl then spits them out somewhere else and eats them one by one. What's that about?

She is a good dog, wish they all could be like momma.

I couldn't have laid the kibble out better myself.

Corrie, animals are amazing creatures, especially dogs. Don't you think?

Thank you!

Kathy, glad you like it. :)
