Relax (aka the perils of owning a boxer dog)

Loving my new neighborhood.

A post shared by Penne Cole (@colepenne) on

There’s no better way to relax than walking our dog Leo around the neighbourhood. We live in such a beautiful part of town, and it’s great to go for walks along the river.

Leo loves our new apartment too. Unlike when we were living in the house, he now gets walks three times a day, and veges out on his couch in between walks. What a life.

Unfortunately, as any boxer dog master knows, you have to be very careful when you are out walking a boxer dog. Otherwise, this happens…


When you’re not careful while walking a boxer dog

… then your walk becomes not relaxing at all.

      Thanks! 🙂 And thanks for stopping by.

  2. He’s a beauty!

    This post made me smile. Long ago we had a boxer-girl who did this all the time. Now we have a boy who is HALF boxer (and half lab.)

    We still get slimed occasionally.

      Lol. Getting a boxer mix sounds like a good idea. Right now, we have to go through the house regularly to clean up Leo’s spit – when he shakes, he gets it all over the walls!

    Leo is a beautiful boxer. I visited a couple of your other post featuring Leo, “Anticipation” and “Deprived? Hardly”, all great posts. I have two 10 year old boxers myself and I absolutely love the breed. Thanks for sharing.

      Yes they’re such loyal, loving dogs aren’t they? Leo is 9 this year, and we’re hoping he will stay with us for a bit longer. Thanks for stopping by!
