As a card-carrying Archer relative,I was thrilled with the photo. However, there was an almost immediate pang of regret when I realized Cooper's relatives will probably never see the pic...

By the way - Two ENORMOUS congrats: Book and baby#2? Awesome. I haven't bought my copy yet, but am DEFINITELY going to!

On todays' post: I looooove this picture - and at the same time it makes me sad for all my friends who can't (or much, much worse, WON"T, for whatever reason) get their kid(s) a pet, be it dog, rat, cat, mouse, lizard or goldfish.
Aren't boxers just..the best?


Thank you kindly, Maya!

kids n dogs.
Adam and Callie were laying on me on the couch this afternoon.
So Adam could examine her teeth.

I just marveled at this big dog laying upside down while Adam poked and prodded very carefully her fangs and nose...and finished with a kiss.

I absolutely love boxers. We always had them while I was growing up. I now have 2 of my own. Two females, Maia my old gray lady is 11 and Isabel the crazy one is 2. I just had a little girl in November and can’t wait for them to be able to play together. All they do is kiss her now which she doesn’t mind. Archer is going to have great memories of his first dogs.

Boxers are excellent dogs for kids. I have a 19 month old son and a 3 1/2 year old boxer. My son climbs all over our boxer and he just lays there. They most def love each other.
