Bruiser

Boxer
Male
No

Bruiser's been with me since he was 2 months old and brings sunshine to my life daily, even on the grayest of days. I've never known a dog that's so in-tune with his surroundings. When I finally lay down on a bad day, he can't seem to crawl onto my chest fast enough and proceed to give me kisses as fast as his doggie tongue will let him. He'll lick my face until I start laughing, at which point he seems satisfied and trots off to bring me a toy. Bruiser is even the reason that Buster's ARVC was caught. I took Bruiser to the ER after noticing something was off, and sure enough, his heart was beating wrong. The cardiologist diagnosed a disruption in electrical signals (no apparent cause) that just sometimes happens. 5 days later, Buster was hospitalized with severe arrhythmias and near heart failure (which I wouldn't have noticed had I not just dealt with Bruiser's heart problem) and diagnosed with ARVC (boxer cardiomyopathy). Our regular vet and the cardiologist both agreed afterward that Bruiser most likely was experiencing sympathy pains for his brother. Beyond being the best therapist a girl can have, Bruiser is just happy living his doggie life - playing with toys, running in the yard with Buster, and snuggling up close with Buster and I when the day starts winding down.

Thank you, all, for your lovely comments - they are so very appreciated :) Boxers truly are an amazing breed - I am a dog lover, but something about this breed just draws me to them. I leave for work with them sitting at the door and think 'This is the worst part of my day'. I come home to their wiggly butts (sometimes more like wiggly bodies!) and think 'This is the best part of my day!'

your boxers are to die for. I have such a soft spot in my heart for all animals, but boxers are by far the best breed. I will NEVER have a home without one! Your Bruiser looks like my Emma who we jsut recently had to have put down :( hardest time of my life! Of course we had to get a new little girl to love instantly and our Lilly was lonely. Beautiful boys!!!
