I've had dogs my entire life and love all of them but boxers are the breed of my heart.  I've had boxers for over 50 years.  Males, females, fawns, brindles, it doesn't matter.  I loved them all.  Unfortunately, my last boxer, a female, died 5 years ago and my male boxer died 6 years ago.  But I didn't remain dogless.  About a year before my female boxer died, we took in a 7 week of pitbull.  He was raised by my boxer and naturally thinks he is a boxer.  I love my pitbull and have come to love the breed as well.  They are really wonderful dogs with loving personalities.  I'm glad he came into my life because he has given me so much.

Growing up, we always had a dog. Mostly little ones and of course mutts. My most favorite dog is the chocolate lab. And, a few years ago, I finally rescued one. Her name is Bella and she is the most sweetest, gentle dog I have ever have. She loves to play and never leaves my side. The funniest thing she does is she loves smells. If you put lotion or perfume on, she will sniff you all over and then try to rub up against you to get the smell on her. Bella is the best dog I have ever had!

Rescue boxers are just the best!  We are on our fourth.  They are loving protectors of their families and adapt well to family routines, etc.  Okay I'll admit....they are big babies that LOVE cuddling on the couch (or bed!) with their families.  We've loved and enjoyed them so much!

My favorite dog breed is whatever I have, but I stay with large rescue dogs.  My almost 10 year old Lab, whom we rescued when she was 4 years old, was alone after our huge 118 pound Boxer-X male died of cancer.  Two months ago we found a 4 year old German Shepard of unknown background that we named Beacon, because he was like a light at the end of the tunnel.  He and Flora and the Lab get along great and Beacon acts like he's been here on the farm forever.  However, we're working with him trying to teach him that our goats and chickens are not for him to eat!  He's learning.

My favorite breed is just about whatever dog I have had from Heinz 57 to pure breed.  I grew up with a wonderful German Shepard that I just adored.  I've had three wonderful beagles and I've had mutts.  But the dog that sticks most in memory was the German Shepard we had named Shorty.

Pits or Pit mixes.  They are the sweetest, most loving dogs we've every had.  They are totally misunderstood - they used to be used as Nanny dogs because of their loyalty and love of children, especially family.  They are NOT mean by nature - they have to be deliberatly mistreated to become mean or fighters.  One police department tried to use them as K-9's and they failed because of that very reason - not trainable for police work by traditional methods!!!

Pomeranian.  My last three rescue dogs have been Pomeranians.  They are cuddly, loving and funny dogs with lots of character.  Also, they are smart and learn easily.  My current sweet Pom, Pasha, is also a talker!

Our Miniature Poodle, Amber, fills our lives with love and laughter. While we haven't gotten her certified as a Therapy Dog, she has seen me through a knee replacement and open heart surgery. When I was in rehab, Amber was permitted to visit me. She adopted all the other patients there, and would visit them, too. We have spoiled her, and she loves everyone she meets.

She has a special relationship with one neighbor.

One day as we walked past the house, Amber insisted that we stop. (I could have won the contest, but she was determined.) The woman came out and sat on the steps. Amber climbed into her lap, hugged her, and licked the tears off her face. It turned out that the woman had an outpatient procedure under anesthesia the previous day and was having a lot of nausea and pain. Amber sat very patiently and allowed the lady to hold her and hug her. After a while, the symptoms abated, and we continued on our walk.

She gets along with all the dogs in the neighborhood, but is a bit fearful with larger, noisier pups. At the kennel, where we have her groomed and where we board her, they have nicknamed her the "Social Director."
