Spring is Here, Spring is Sprung,

The Bird is on the Wing.
Oh, My!  How Absurd!
I Thought the Wing was on the Bird!

We will be selling our Bike Tow Leash at the Tulsa Boxer Rescue Bark Walk fundraiser on April 21st.  We had a 6 foot banner designed for the event and (drum-roll) here it is!

McKenzie is featured here and she really loves running on this leash.  You can see by her profile that she's having a great time.  Spring is here!  Get your tails up and your paw pads lubricated!  It's time to get out there and RUN!

The Fog of Boxer Misbehavior....

...Is Clearing and the House of Hagg
Can Now Predict a
Bright and Pleasant Existence
with Our Beloved Chamberlains,
the Lord Malcolm and His Lady McKenzie

an Update on Boxer Puppy Training by
Nessie the Monster, Duchess of Hagg

Well, I say!  Who knew that it would be 2 years and 5 months before we could begin to realize the fruits of our work!  As many of you know, in September of '09 I lost the love of my life, my handsome big brother, WishBone, Duke of the House of Hagg.  We were devastated at his loss and thus began a long period of mourning for the entire Palace.  At an appropriate time, I thought it necessary to replace the mourning, weeping and wailing with a lighter countenance and attitude.  I thereby instructed my staff to begin a search for two well bred, beautiful and intelligent puppies.  They did, indeed find a breeder in Wendell, North Carolina (near Raleigh) who had a litter of pups so sweet and so beautiful (even if the male did have a very definite look of mischievousness about him) 
Malcolm was the runt of the litter and has not yet grown into his now giant head and feet.  Runts do not always stay small, but he learned to fight to get his food and whatever else he wanted.  This fighting attitude is what formulated his future personality.

that my staff got on the phone to them right away.  And, after a bit of questioning and discussion, they immediately sent a check.  The following December, at Christmas-Tide, we loaded up the motor-coach and drove out the claim them as our very own.

So, as you have been reading in this blog since that day, on the way out to North Carolina, my staff formulated a plan for training right from the start.  They knew it would be difficult with 2 puppies at once.  But I do not think they understood just how difficult..........
