Second Puppyhood
« on: January 26, 2015, 10:13:57 AM »
It has been my observation over the years that these silly boxers go through a brief phase of mental maturity where they seem a bit more laid back, observant and serious. Then somewhere between 7 and 9 they start reverting back into puppies. Laila is officially in her born-again puppy phase. She is 9 and has become sillier than ever! She has even started playing with toys (of which she didn't even do when she was still a pup) ... sort of, it's more like corn-cobbing then shaking thbem to death. :yes:  She will be walking through the living room and all of a sudden she'll snort at me and drop into a play bow, then she just flops onto her side and starts scoochin' around on her back like a wiggle worm. Then she freezes and after a minute or two with no movement she jumps up and lays down on the sofa. I love this new extra silly phase, however this side of her is also mischievous and has gotten in trouble for counter surfing and getting into trash.

Star is in his second puppyhood as well, he plays constantly and acts like a fool. Getting Loki has helped a lot and I think made him go back even more.
