We have Grass!

We have been living so long with mud that mom can not believe it is finally here!

Here are some of the cool pictures...

Delivery of the Grass

Bella loves laying in grass!

These are my two skin nephews. They had a great time playing in the mud as you can see by Jack's mouth. This is Andrew and Jack.

This is me being a very good boy around the babies. I love babies and normally have to be told to not lick them so much but I was trying to get my toy back! I did wait very patiently for them to give it back and did not go take it from them. It is not nice to take stuff from babies.

Jack kept trying to crawl up to me and touch me. I let him a little but mostly just kept backing up. He did use my mouth to hold on to and pull up to a standing position once. I just let him and then gave him a big lick. He laughed and fell over. I love babies but I really just wanted my toy back. Mom went and got it for me after this because I was being so good.

The finished yard! It looks like a park it is so beautiful!

Mom is so happy to have a finished yard but now we have to go an help her water. Thanks for coming to look at our pictures! There will be lots more fun pictures to come!

Boxer love

p.s. Mom said to tell you that she and Andrew's mama were very close while I was playing with the babies. She knows I am a good boy around babies but it is always a good idea to have an adult near because I am very big and can hurt them without meaning to. In this case two adults, one for each baby. Please be careful around babies and children if you are a doggy so that we can help teach them to be nice to doggies and not be scared of us. Parents please teach your children to be nice to doggies and watch your children because not all doggies are nice and know to be careful. My good friend Honey is very good at this. Go and see her in action here...



  1. Yippee! Congratulations on your grass! It looks Most Beautiful and Comfy! I know you're going to have the bestest time playing on it.

    Oh, and thank you for the most wonderful reminder about doggies and baby humans. Lots of people don't think about that and don't teach their little ones how to act around us and then they get hurt and blame us! And it's just very much sad all the way around.

    Enjoy your Most Wonderful yard!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  2. So wonderful to have wonderful grass to play and romp on! I'm so very impressed that you are so good with the little ones. We haven't really been around them so mom would never leave us just cuz we don't know better. My brother Lucky must have had practice with little ones he loves them too! We were out one time with a friend who has a little one and he just went over had put his big old giant head in the stroller in his lap and about fell asleep! :-)

  3. What an amazing yard! I can see you're already enjoying reclining in the grass.

  4. Wow! What a HUGE garden you guys have got!! Practically your own dog park! Hee! Hee!

    I can see how good you were with the babies, Boxen - but it's great advice you gave about being careful and always supervising around doggies & human pups!

  5. Hooray for pretty green grass. I know you are going to have many, many happy times enjoying the grass.

  6. Hi Bella and Boxen, I'm so glad to see you again, for a while I have lost track of you two, gosh, I miss you!
    Baby Jack is so smart, he used your mouth to hold on to and pulled up to stand, haha, it's so cute.
    Please keep posting, and Happy Belated Mother's Day to your Mom.

  7. Hi Boxen and Bella! I just wanted to stop by and say hi and tell you that I miss you!

    And I also wanted to tell you about this super duper contest I'm having to raise green papers for a local rescue. All you have to do is guess what's in my dee-en-ay. AND you could win a cool prize for yourself. Come by if you gets a chance!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  8. Ha Rooo there my boxer friends,

    My name is Kasha the Dainty Great Dane you came to visit me a while back but we had pooter issues and now we are back to blogging so thought I'd say hello. You are sure purty looking doggies and Wowzers or should I say Bowzer on that great big giant yard you guys get to run around in...my yard looks tiny compared to that! Hope all is well with you guys and stop by my blog once in a while now that I'm back to blogging.

  9. Hello Boxen & Bella-

    I'm Lucy the Boxer and my hooman just found your blog! I's hope we can be friends. My hooman gets all excited when she finds other bloggies about Boxers!

    Wiggles & Giggles,
    Lucy Lou

  10. What a beautiful garden you have... sorry park! Now it is really a park! And tell me something.. I could see you have a swimming pool... are you allowed to swim in it?
    I have one too, but even if my humans would allow me to, and they would, I am absolutely not going to swim in it... I hate it... I lose interest in my favourite toy (real favourite) if it falls in the pool... when the humans take it out than it is my favourite toy again!
    Glad I met you guys - I am Lucille
    I live in Italy and I saw your post from Honey's blog!
    ciao Lucille

  11. Ooh, I'd like to have grass delivered, please! Instead, I put down seed & cross my fingers that all our mud patches fill in with grass! That's what you get with two Danes, though! :)

  12. Some good ideas there for how to handle the babies -- thanks for sharing. That rolled-up green grass is AMAZING. They just spread it out like a carpet and BOOM! it's like you're living on a golf course...
