Why didn't you dock his tail? We had two boxers and they were both great dogs.

They are really great dogs - this is my second one... Great sense of humor and lots of energy

He is a European Import - and its no longer legal to dock or crop over there .......

But he is going in for his manhood to be snipped - and I am thinking of docking him while he is under the knife .... But getting used to the tail now

The phantom limb ...... Yea, I am really on the fence - he is au naturale right now and I may keep it that way.... but they do look good with a docked tail

We never cropped their ears but always had the tails done. I loved watching that little knub going crazy. Now, with our Lab, if he gets excited something is getting broke! Your boxer looks like he will be a tall one, our last one weighed 95 lbs.

That tail is a deadly weapon for sure..

His Italiano pappa is around 75 lbs so we are hoping he will be similar....

Maybe he needs a multi-vitamin or a personal trainer

Laughing with you on this

My GSD's vet told me he had a slight overbite (with a straight face). I told him that both kids and the wife had braces and the dog was not getting them. He looks at me like I'm a cheap bastard

Saturday the wife (the one with braces - don't ask) says that we need more bottled water. I say I just picked up 4 cases. She says, but that was before Blitz started drinking it.

The dog is now drinking bottled water and needs braces.

And they have the audacity to ask me why I drink

Don't give dogs people medicine... You'd be surprised how many of them will kill dogs.

Go to the vet and tell them he needs something and they should give it with no hassle., We give our golden retriever mix one because he has the bad hip problem. Whenever he plays to hard he can barely move. The pills take care of his pain for the night. I'm out right now or I'd go look at the bottle and tell you what it is. I should have more at the end of the week if you don't have a solution yet.

Ours is carprofen. Evidently its the same thing as rimadyl that DD above gets. It does the trick.

Default Dog Meds

Rimadyl is a brand name of the generic carprofen. It is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), safe for dogs unlike ibuprofen, a human NSAID which is quite toxic to dogs. Neither is a muscle relaxer.
