White Boxer is home (not my home)



Here he is, pre-home. A babe-magnet, right? Took about six women to round him up over at Sam Merrill, and then two of us to get him in my car. Thanks for their help, and yours.

  1. And how does Albert feel about this? And Bro? For once I miss the Altadena Point. If nothing else, it was a good bulletin board.

  2. I've had to Balkanize the house. Whitey wants to play with Albert, but even if Albert were to put on his party manners, he's no Fred Astaire and Whitey has stiff hips. Big Bro is taking his meals outside. Fingers crossed he's the dog that lives not far from me, but I can't tell for sure.

  4. Hope he's reunited with his family soon. Albert's a good sport!

  5. You know what's so dear -- someone in France posted Whitey. Well, with a boxer, you just never know...

    1. A dog from my street wandered off to the Meadows. What is that, 5 miles? So, France, pourquoi pas?

  6. Glad he is home. Love that last bit. He would look good in a beret, no?

  7. Oh, goody, he made it home. He just wanted an advechuh

  8. And Bro can settle down again with his buddy, Big Al. Love the idea of the beret! My husband sports one handsomely too, though he doesn't resemble Whitey at all. Sorry we have none to spare.

  9. I'm sure Big Al thought it was nice to have a friend visit, and I know what Bro's reaction was. Winston said much the same thing to Natasha last summer, when he was in residence, and Shannon brought Natasha to visit. This human found it most humorous. But I'm glad Whitey got home; his humans had to have been concerned.

  10. Whitey looks old - do boxers age quickly? I wonder if he has a bit of dementia? My neighbor's dog was often out wandering the streets in his final half year.

  11. Boxers don't age faster than any other big dogs. Although that Phoebe made it to 15 or 16 was rather unusual, though not extraordinarily so. And Whitey seems of sound mind. According to his family, he's an escape artist. Which makes me wonder why he's not wearing dog tags. Albert is chipped, but doesn't wear a collar because he's almost hung himself twice when performing laps around the backyard. I don't know how; it's an Albert-thing.

  12. Is Whitey chipped? Can you tell if a dog is chipped? Who has a chip reader besides Nestles?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yeah, I don't think Nestles cares unless the chip is chocolate or butterscotch. Some veterinarians will scan a lost dog for the microchip, and for free. Vanderhoofs in Altadena will. Phoebe's I could feel on the back of her shoulder, but most dogs have too much fur or fat for that. And a chip can wander beyond the original positioning, so they run the scanner over the entire body. Had we not found Whitey's home yesterday, I would have taken him to Vanderhoofs today. Everyone should chip their dog. Everyone should spay/neuter their dog. And everyone who has a puppy should get the dew claws removed. Albert has ripped his three times and it's very painful -- personally for the dog, and financially for the owner.

  14. Six women? Apparently not really a 'babe magnet', huh?

  15. Lucky babe magnet. So nice to read a happily reunited story !

  16. I dunno -- Whitey looked comfortably at home in his pic. He might miss his roommates in the balkanized house.
