My little Boxer girl Ruby

  1. As intelligent as boxers are, I’m surprised you didn’t figure out a way to teach her to point, or hunt, or alert you to all those spiders you had …. ????

    • Her intelligence is best described as selective – I throw her ball in the house, she runs to find an open window, drops it outside then sits and waits while I “fetch” it from the garden. She’s all too fond of presenting us with a dead squirrel or rat but has zero interest in creepy crawlies. Sigh. 🙂
