Hello and Happy Monday! My "D" word for the day is Dogs. As you all know, my love for dogs is over the moon and beyond. I was raised with Boxers most of my life. My last Boxer, Baily, left us about 6 years ago. Didn't get another because my daughter was allergic to pet dander. I was ready at that point for a little break from dogs.

Boxers are my all time favorite breed.

They are loyal, loving, protective, and best of all they are very good with children. Just big ol' marshmallows they are! Beautiful too.

Then one day my husband brings this little thing home. No dander and non-allergenic. Was never my favorite breed and it took me awhile to warm up to her. That was 5 years ago and I'm now putty in her paws.

When I look at her now, I am ashamed that for the first week or so that I didn't want her. Now I can't get enough of her! She is so damn sweet and well behaved! She is also the ultimate snuggler.

Stella also really loves hanging out with everyone. Hates to be alone.

Very social this little girl is.
If you didn't know already, you know now, my never ending love for dogs!



  1. oh Stella...can you believe your mom didn't want you?! hope she wasn't watching you type this post! :)
    i too love boxers! had 4 at one time (b4 hubby) he didn't want a boxer because he thought they we ended up with goldens....
    Stella is a lucky little gal!

  2. Stella is a doll....but I can see when you are used to one breed it's hard to think of another with the same passion. Thank goodness she won you over. Sophie is social too hates being alone. Have a wonderful Monday!

  3. Beautiful pictures of your dogs..
