With all the recent talk about our impending bundle of joy, I've neglected to showcase our other new baby- an 8 month old Boxer named Fritz. I named him that because Boxers are German and, believe me, he's on the fritz. He is the cutest little guy EVER!!! True to puppy from, he's a real handful and Gabe hates him. He wants me to give him away but he's a really good dog so I just implore him for patience. We adopted him from poor living conditions and he's just trying to get up to speed. The previous owners were not up to the puppy task and had kept him in his kennel constantly since they brought him home at 8 weeks. They even let him potty in there which poses a problem for me because kennel training is my preferred puppy-breaking method. He's really doing great. It was so funny because Gabe said, "I didn't know puppies were so much work!" It was at this moment that I became doubly determined to keep the dog. I think it will be good practice for him for the human baby. Still, if anyone has some stellar Boxer training tips, I would appreciate it. Isn't that top picture cute!!!? You can see how gray Lexi has gotten; her face use to be black. Sweet old girl!
