This is Breezy Boxers' stud - Cairo. And our newest female we added to our breeding program - Phoenix. Cairo weighs around 80 lbs and yet is so gentle with everyone! We had to have Phoenix in a little sweater, it was so cold and she shivered so hard without it!
My daughter Jennae - helping Dad give Phoenix a bath. Cairo and Topeka had to go first though!
Everyone trimmed and clean, waiting for their treats.
Every breed of dogs has their own health issues. For Boxers, cancer seems to be one. Below is a paragraph taken from WebMD. We lost one of our boxers to cancer, and it seems that a majority of the people looking for puppies tell us similar stories. So please check your pet regularly!!
Boxers are at higher risk for certain types of cancer, including lymphoma and mast cell tumors. Lymphoma is cancer of the lymph nodes, and mast cell tumors are a type of skin cancer. In both cases, the cancer is often felt as an unusual lump or bump on your dog's body. Both of these cancers might be treatable, but it's important to catch them early. So if you have a boxer, be sure to check him regularly for lumps.
Cairo and Topeka had a successful tie today so counting ahead the average 63 days, puts her due date at April 11th. They should tie a few more times yet, but I count from the date of the first one. When she starts to show I will update the blog and let everyone know!
