    I know I haven't been as active on here for quite some time, but life happens. This past year has been busy with house projects. Mainly replacing all the windows. I managed to replace 15 of 19 windows throughout last summer and fall. I'll knock out the last 4 this spring sometime.

    Anyway, I've put a deposit on my next "long term" purchase. I'd like to introduce you all to my new pup...

    I met him for the first time Tuesday. I grew up with boxers. My parent's last boxer passed away about 4 years ago. My sister's passed a little under 2 years ago. Now, that I am finally in a spot where I can devote the time necessary to training a pup... I am ready for a slobbering mess of my own.

    He is about 5 weeks old right now. I will be picking him up mid-March. He comes from very healthy champion lines out of Europe. His dad was a recent import from Serbia. I got to meet both parents (Oz, the Dad & Legacy, the Mom) while I was there. Even got to meet one of his Grandpas, Murphy. Murphy is a BIG boy, as is Oz. Oz is still filling out too, but probably sits around 80lbs or so. Murphy walks around at an easy 90lbs of solid muscle.

    Not sure if he'll be joining me at Fontana just yet. It is quite a long road trip for such a small guy. If anyone else is looking for a boxer, he does have 4 brothers and 3 sisters available still.

    I still haven't decided on a name at the moment, but have whittled it down to about 8 at this point. Think I'll wait till I get to know him a bit before I settle on one, though.

    Couple of other gratuitous doggo pics of the parents and granddads...

    Anyway, just figured I'd drop in and say "Hi" to all you misfits! Don't worry I'll keep the puppy pics contained in this thread, once he arrives.

    Beautiful pup Savvy. He looks like he'll definitely be ready for a trip to The Dragon next year.
    I just adopted a new rescue dog to fill the void left after my 13 year old Yorkie passed a couple weeks ago.

    I'm jealous... My wife won't let me have a dog...even if one follows me home. :) I guess 3 birds and 2 cats is enough...

    I have a dog, a yellow lab, he is friendly with a couple of other dogs in the neighborhood. My neighborhood is at the end of a mile long dead end road, out in the sticks, it is a twenty minute drive to get to town. The neighborhood dogs are kind of free range. When the UPS truck comes, my dog and the two other dogs will sit next to the UPS truck's door and wait patiently for a treat, the UPS drivers always carry dog treats. Then they follow the truck to the next house and do it again. On a good day they can mooch three or four snacks off of the UPS guy.

    Not familiar with boxers, are ya?! They rarely settle for their people's feet. Even the well trained ones, can't comprehend that your "personal space bubble" isn't for sharing with them. They are definitely giant, slobbery, lap dogs.
