nacho hockey

you may have seen the boxer hockey photos from a few weeks ago. if not, check them out here. brother and i took pa out on the ice to get in some practice time and help him with his game. his team has there big game this Sat and we're so excited. i hope all that extra time we spent with him pays off. too bad we can't go watch too, but i think they're afraid we'd give him an unfair advantage. besides, i'd probably be too nervous watching him play anyway. good luck pa!

rainy weekend

how boring! it rained, snowed, and sleeted all weekend. a horrible weekend to be a boxer. brother and i were stuck in the house the entire time. so lots of tv time. we watch another dog show and once again, we think the contest is rigged. the boxer didn't win the Working class. we think the Doberman is sleeping with one of the judges!

mom made appointments for us at "camp" starting next week. she signed brother up for macrame and line dancing. i think i'll take italian and pottery!

hold the butters

hi! it's butters again! back for my Friday column.

i considered using my posting this week to talk about the goings on with Britney and Anna Nicole, but what does a boxer really care? i mean, there are geese to bark at, squirrels to chase, sunlit area rugs and warm vents to monoplize! as usual, Cookies can't stand not being the center of attention and she's all over mom's chair as im trying to dictate to her. geesh!!!

speaking of media circus, it has been a typical paprazzi day for us. mom took us on errands this morning and we went for our usual Starbuck's Puppy Latte/Puppychino. as mom pulled up to pay and get the goodies, the Starbucks chick had a request from the car in front of us. they asked that when we were done to please pull over so she could meet the boxers. yawn yawn. another admiring fan. she was very nice and had a boxer pup of her own. even the Starbucks lady grew up with boxers and enjoyed meeting us. what can we say? it's the price of celebrity!

Guest Speaker

hi! i'm Butters (aka Matrix). i'm Cookies' big (headed) brother. mom decided that it wasn't fair to give Cookers all the spotlight so she's allowing me to be guest speaker on Fridays. i'm a little slower and since mom is off work Fridays, she can take the time to help me with my postings. i have lots to say! boyee!

i'm the sensitive one and a big lover. mom says i'm her "special" boxer! mom was kind enough to adopt me from a friend of a friend last year. he was a great guy, but just couldn't keep me. he knew about Cookie (who doesn't?) and asked if mom would take me. seriously? you think she'd say no? no question about it! i've been here for about 1 1/2 years and i love it! last summer i learned to ride in the kayak. Cookie loves to kayak and goes with pa all the time. i'm kinda spastic so i haven't gone out to the islands yet, just floated around out in front of the house. but this year i'm gonna get better! and i'll make sure mom posts some pics of that!

well, that's all for today. it's cold and i have to go sit in front of the vent and hog all the warm air! i'll see ya next week!

socks socks socks

with the weather being so cold out, it's important to have the right shoes. but more important is the right socks. hmmm, where are my smartwools?

would you trust these paws to anything else?

dainty flower

it's just too much for a precious thing like me to have to put my paws in the snow. the NWS began predicting 5-6 inches of snow here for today. those poor people in Oswego must be laughing themselves into insanity! but 5-6 inches is enough for me to refuse to go to the bathroom. and who can blame me with a nicely heated bathroom floor like this! Brother is not so picky. dad had no problem getting him to go this morning. it took 4 tries before i would finally venture out. mom eventually had to carry me out the front door so i'd go. i'll probably surprise her with a nice steamy gift right in the middle of the living room when she gets home!

hi! i'm Cookie and i'm a 5 year old fawn boxer. i'm a very happy go lucky girl and i love to meet new people. i'm a big fan of Oliver and got inspired to do my own spot when i discovered Cairo. i'll try my best to do something daily - except maybe when ma and pa are gone, but i'll try. hope you enjoy it!
