Burton is absolutely wonderful! He has really blossomed and is a happy, healthy, exuberant boxer boy!
He plays “all out” and is also quite the cuddle bug, a perfect mix.
We are lucky enough to have two young pups (about a year old) living next door and they and Burton play all the time. One is almost as fast as Burton and they barrel around the yard, while us people try to get out of their way!
Burton has a new way to entice me to play in the morning. I workout upstairs each morning and Burton comes up with me, usually he will play on his own with a toy or lay in his bed up there and nap. Lately, he watches for me to sit on the floor and put on my sneakers. Then he’ll walk over and walk up to me, putting his head in my tummy, this always gets me to pet him, it is too cute. Once I start to pet him he does the dive and roll, laying down in between my legs and rolling onto his back and wiggles his belly around! I can’t not give him a big belly rub. Then the playing begins and we’ll wrestle a bit and play with a toy. It is a great way to start the day.:)
Needless to say, he is a perfect fit for our family and we both adore him. He knows all the neighbors and neighborhood dogs and is friends with all. He knows where all the dogs live and always looks for them when we pass those homes on our walks, hoping one of the dogs will be out to play.
We are fortunate that Burton can go to work with my husband each day, so he is rarely alone. He is doing really well, though when he is home alone and hasn’t “moved” any items for a while now ( he used to move a sneaker into another room of the house, the bag of bbq coals, a book here or there…). He did not destroy the items (just one book binding) but would take the things to other areas of the house!
I could go on and on about our boy! We are very thankful we found him.
