Our new baby (PICS)...
Posted 07 September 2008 - 03:46 AM
Buster is ALL puppy--- clumsy legs with a horse like gallop, jowels that flap in the wind like a parachute, and a center of gravity similar to an SUV.
He's an 8 month old purebred Boxer from the SPCA. Frank has always wanted a Boxer, and the timing was right now that we have a huge yard and room in the house.
Pictures aren't the greatest... it was getting dark by the time we got home and I really hate TTL flash photos... I'll take more tomorrow when the lighting is better, and post them if I get something I like from them...
And, our firstborn baby.... Raven:

It'll take awhile for them to define their boundaries and dominance, but Raven is pretty patient and we're making sure to treat them both the same (ie, if I'm petting Buster, then Frank is petting Raven).
They're both playing real good with each other so far. We'll have some "extras" to teach Buster so he acclimates to our house better. For example, Raven "self feeds"--- she can have a full bowl of food for days, and only eats when she's hungry. Buster "time feeds"---- he gulps down his allotment in the morning, then again in the evening.
I started working with Buster tonight on basic commands (Come, Sit, Down). He's already responding quickly, so I think this will go pretty well.
