The Boxer, A Working Dog Breed, is Loved by All

I read this article on and I wanted to just share this bit from it:

The Working Dog group includes most of the guard dog breeds such as the Rottweiler and Doberman Pinscher as well as the northern sled dogs such as the Alaskan Malamute and the Siberian Husky. Most of these dogs need lots of exercise and a fair amount of living space. Many of these dogs have thick double coats and can be heavy shedders. The heavy shedding breeds include the: Akita, Alaskan Malamute, Great Pyrenees, Newfoundland, Saint Bernard, Samoyed and Siberian Husky. The top 10 most popular Working Dog breeds in the US according to the American Kennel Club 2005 registrations are discussed below and their registration rank is included in brackets.

1. Boxer
The Boxer (#7) is a large, strong and muscular dog that is energetic, good-natured and playful. Boxers are very popular because they love children and are a good dog breed for active families with children. Toddlers and young children should be supervised carefully when around young or adolescent dogs that will knock them over when they get excited. This breed needs early socialization and obedience training while they are puppies and exercise while adolescents to control their exuberance. Boxers are alert, intelligent and eager to please and can be trained to a high level for agility sports and obedience competitions. Boxers make good watchdogs and can even be trained to be guard dogs.

Border Collie: Just one? And then I'll replace any wiring that's not up to code.
Boxer: Who cares? I can still play with my squeaky toys in the dark.
Yo quiero Taco Bulb.
Cocker Spaniel: Why change it? I can still pee on the carpet in the dark.
Collie: No, don't change it. If it's dark, maybe no one will see me sleeping on the couch.

The Difference Between Cats and Dogs

Cats Drool!

Dogs come when you call them. Cats take a message and get back to you when they are good and ready.

Dogs will give you unconditional love forever. Cats will make you pay for every mistake you"ve ever made since the day you were born.

Dogs will let you give them a bath without taking out a contract on your life.

Dogs will tilt their heads and listen whenever you talk. Cats will yawn and close their eyes.

Dogs will bark to wake you up if the house is on fire. Cats will quietly sneak out the back door.

Dogs will sit, lie down, and heel on command. Cats will smirk and walk away.

Dogs will bring you your slippers or the evening newspaper. Cats might bring you a dead mouse.
Dogs will greet you and lick your face when you come home from work. Cats will be mad that you went to work at all.

Dogs will play Frisbee with you all afternoon. Cats will take a three hour nap.

Dogs will sit on the car seat next to you. Cats have to have their own private box or they will not go at all.

Dogs Rule!

Dear Clown Prince

Dear Clown Prince,

My family keeps ignoring me when they have food. I want some. How do I get it?


The Yapping Chihuahua


Dear Burrito Dog,

Look for the smallest person with food. Stand as close by as possible. Lick lips frequently. Make small moan noise. Wait for food to drop.


Your Hineyness
