Dear Dog Diary:
I chew after every meal I enjoy my rawhide roll-up for 10 minutes. Working on it this way shows just how deft I am with my paw work. We boxers are known for this.
The only time this trait gets me into trouble is when I invite another dog to play. I whack another boxer on the neck or shoulders, and the game is on, running, chasing, batting at each other with our fore paws.
I tried this with my lab-in-law, Buddy, the other day. He is a nice guy but totally misreads it when I whack him. He mumbles and goes to hide behind a chair.
Oh, and I tried it with the office cat up on the counter at the vet's. This did not go well either, though he did bat at me and make hissy sounds.
I thought you'd like this photo. The vet liked it so much, I will be featured on the practice Facebook page for March dental specials!
