The Moms Love Boxers

First something you didn't know. Gazoo is getting adopted tomorrow! Happy New Year, buddy! He will now have a Boston buddy.

Obviously, the moms love boxers (especially me). They work with Legacy Boxer Rescue, they've had boxers in the past, etc. But they also collect little boxer statues. So I'm going to show you. Today, the first installment. No special order...

The first one's flashy fawn like me!


The second is plain fawn, and I think he's got your sock! He's a Mortens boxer (Mortens is the company that made the statue) - mom's favorite kind.


The third cute puppy is also plain fawn, but he has cropped ears. Mom prefers boxers and boxer statues with floppy ears like mine, but they are hard to find sometimes.

Another cropped boxer. Plain fawn. One problem with the crop-ears statues is that they usually have bad crop jobs. Mom thinks a good crop job would be too prone to breakage.

Number five is a flashy brindle. Brindles often present a problem in statues. Usually the stripes look funny. Like tiger stripes instead of pretty brindle stripes, which are not as well defined. This guy's brindling is not bad.

What do you think? Do they like boxers? This is only the beginning of the collection. I'll show you more tomorrow. If you know where to find boxer statues, let us know!

We definitely like boxers! Those are some cute statues. Tanner has brindle in him that you can see when the sun hits his fat just right.

We are so happy about Gazoo!

Woo Hoo for Gazoo. We are so excited. We love boxers also of course. Mom says she agrees with you on the brindle boxer stuff and she also prefers floppy ears of course

I know my mom loves boxers!
Where do you guys live; we live near Houston.
I lot of people think I am a boxer pup, but I am really a 2 year old BIG Boston terrier with extra long jowls.
I really like your blog - come & visit me sometime!

If you look closely at Gazoo in this picture, he looks like he has a horn growing out of his head.
