Fergus

Clark says I've been reluctant to "blog the dog" because I don't like him. Yes, we got a puppy and yes, I have been a little reluctant to tell the world for a couple of reasons. First, remember Buckley? Yeah, neither do I. It's sad but he was a little too high energy for our family and when we moved to Tucson we didn't bring him with us. I thought my dogs days were done but then I think about Brody- you know, Brody? Brody who always lingered in the background of our videos, who was the chillest dog around, who was easy and sweet and who may have turned me into a secret dog-lover. Well, when I think about him, I wish we had a dog. And really, I wish my boys had a dog to grow up with.
Well, Clark finally wore me down. I told him I wanted a dog on the verge of death (more relaxed that way) but he brought this guy home instead...


He's a male boxer, fawn, born on the fourth of July. Booker named him Fergus because "like Callie's has, mom" (his aunt Callie has a chihuahua named Fergie that he loves) and also after one of his favorite books. The boys LOVE him, Clark loves him and I'll admit that he's pretty dang cute. Also, he earned points with me by curling up at my feet and cuddling with me during the entire Miss Universe pageant. Too bad Brody is not around to teach him a thing or two.

Adorable! Boxer's are crazy. We had a few boxer neighbors and they never stopped foaming at the mouth. Good luck! :)

boxers are the best :) ok, i have like zero dog experience to go on, but of friends who owned boxers vs other crazy dogs, i love them. if i ever own a dog (not very likely) i want a beagle then a boxer. i just think beagles are cuter in the dog shows :) congrats! and great name!

I am very jelous. Boxer's are very easy to train. Give him a full 24 hours of your time and that's all it takes. He's gorgeous and I love the name!
