I love boxers. My second mother was one.

Cappy and I circa 1960

Attachment 17594

Cappy was a spayed female and adopted me as her own when I was born.

Mom told me that one time Cappy and I were in the kitchen as she prepared dinner. I reached up for the hot pan on the stove.

Reflexively and out of terror Mom grabbed my hand, turned me away from the stove and gave me a swat on the behind.

Out of fear and maternal instinct and before Mom could say NO! HOT! Cappy proceeded to nip moms ankle.

Dear Cappy.... she was a sweet girl.

Thanks for invoking wonderful memories of my dear companion and protector.

Ditto here. My first thought was "how fortunate to have wildlife right in your front yard." When I saw the remarks about having dinner, I was disappointed. How could anyone miss the beauty of such an animal.

I understand the need to go hunting, but sometimes a gun is not always the answer. Just to stand there and appreciate is something everyone should be able to do even just once in their life.

We have deer, coons, coyotes, possums, foxes, bunnies, groundsquirrels, squirrels, voles, moles, the neighbor's cats, and a huge and diverse assortment of birds. We love life in the country!
