Someday, he will be so old he can barely get up and walk.....when that day comes, you will look back on these times as "the good old days." Cherish them.

Uh-oh. Boxer farts. Boxers are notorious for their gas production.

It will help if you add a little live culture yogurt to his diet.

It varies from dog to dog but the off button usually happens automatically when they get to be 8 or 10 or 12 years old. That's why I now only adopt senior dogs.

'Til then lots of exercise is your best friend.

Our Golden is about 3 and never stops. ASo, we invite our 6 year old nephew to come over and play with the dog. They stay in the yard FOR HOURS playing chase, catch and what not. Bring them in, feed them, send the biy back to mom and he sleeps all noght. The dog hits his bed and sleeps all night.

lol. I have a nuclear powered rescue puppy. She went to the country where she can run and run and run and run (and run). And swim and swim and swim and swim (and swim).

I didn't have a backyard to do the things you can with yours. There was no such thing as enough walking or time at the park!

The best off-button for her is the lake. That wears her butt out!
