Another new dog and a new house!
So we have yet another new and wonderful addition! This is Dudley (Chris says he looks like Dudley Moore, lol) He is an AMAZING little boxer boy that we pulled from a disgusting pound last week. The poor guy was only 36lbs and in 5 days he gained 7lbs!!!!! He's around 8-9yrs young, had fleas, and was a mess in general. He was very out of sorts and kind of still is. He didn't wag his tail, play with toys or give kisses but we are working on that and he gets better everyday. He was supposed to be a foster but this guy has been through too much and we love him too much already to let him go anywhere.
And on another happy note, we just bought a house!! It's official now! It has 2 acres of woods!!!

Congrats on the new addition, Crystal!

BoxerRescueMTL December 1st, 2005 11:15 PM

Thanks!! Both were quite unexpected, lol.

mesaana December 1st, 2005 11:18 PM

Don't forget to change your signature! ;) Dudley is a lucky boy!

BoxerRescueMTL December 1st, 2005 11:21 PM

Oh ya!!! I will do that right now :) hehehe thanks!

Prin December 1st, 2005 11:39 PM

ooo nice doggies and a nice house! Some girls have it all!:D

BoxerRescueMTL December 1st, 2005 11:47 PM

Thanks Prin, I'm super excited!
[QUOTE]Some girls have it all![/QUOTE]
Lol, ya except now I really don't have any room in the bed.

Prin December 1st, 2005 11:51 PM

:D Yeah, my next bed is going to be 2 queens stuck together...

BoxerRescueMTL December 2nd, 2005 12:00 AM

Or a California King- have you heard of that? I think it is bigger than a king size..I'd need a bigger house!

Prin December 2nd, 2005 12:04 AM

How many bedrooms does your new house have? Bathrooms? Is there a basement? I see there's a fireplace- that room must be great with the big window to watch the snow fall with a fire on? (sorry for the 20 questions but we just got a house in the spring, so the q'ns are still fresh)

BoxerRescueMTL December 2nd, 2005 12:09 AM

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, woodstove in basement, fireplace in living room...Ya the big window is awesome - I have some pics of the inside I can post. I'll go find them.

Prin December 2nd, 2005 12:12 AM

oo woodstove! I'm almost jealous. We're the only ones on our street who don't have a wood stove... We have an electric one but that won't help in an ice storm..:o

Oh wait, you said a "wood stove in the basement"... Now I'm jealous. We don't have a basement. :o

BoxerRescueMTL December 2nd, 2005 12:18 AM

Sorry that's probably overkill but I'm so frickin' excited. I'm sure you understand if you guys just got your first house!

BoxerRescueMTL December 2nd, 2005 12:19 AM

[QUOTE]oo woodstove[/QUOTE]
We're hoping it'll save us some $$ in heating!

Prin December 2nd, 2005 12:22 AM

ooo it's so pretty! Wow! That's awesome! I love the floors.:) And the windows. And the trees.:)

BoxerRescueMTL December 2nd, 2005 12:30 AM

Thanks! I love the trees sooooo much. It does need some work though - I didn't show you the ugly rooms, heehee. The kitchen and bathroom need a little lipstick and rouge ;) Bedtime for me! Night Prin!

BMDLuver December 2nd, 2005 08:32 AM

Aww Crystal, congrats on your new home.... it's beautiful. Congrats on Dudley too, he is one lucky fellow. You guys are just awesome in my books!

papillonmama December 2nd, 2005 08:37 AM

WTG on your early Christmas arrivals... Dudley looks very happy!

BoxerRescueMTL December 2nd, 2005 09:24 AM

Thanks guys :)
Oh Jenn you should've seen the poor little turd when I picked him up. Covered in brown dust - like you know the dust on shelves at the barn (I know you're a horse person too)? It was the weirdest thing. Just a layer of it on him, on his nose and face. My hands were shaking putting a collar on him and it took me a few tries, it was so upseting.

BMDLuver December 2nd, 2005 09:41 AM

awww poor guy, they must have started using sawdust to clean with... nothing surprises me at that place as they never see the light of day. I'm heading there this week I think, once I hear from Deb about who's on the kill list.( I"m assuming he was from the place over the bridge. ;) )

jessi76 December 2nd, 2005 09:51 AM

Congratulations on the new home and the new addition!!! Dudley looks adorable!

K9Friend December 2nd, 2005 10:07 AM

Beautiful house. Congrats ! and thank you for saving that beautiful boy! :grouphug:

BoxerRescueMTL December 2nd, 2005 10:10 AM

Thanks jessi76 :)

Ya Jenn, it's that place of course. Hopefully they will get what they deserve for Xmas ;)

BoxerRescueMTL December 2nd, 2005 10:11 AM

Thanks K9friend!

jawert1 December 2nd, 2005 01:18 PM

Congrats on Dudley and the new house :) I bet he's LOVING having that couch to just veg on and new playmates too! :)

meb999 December 2nd, 2005 01:50 PM

WOOOHOOO!! I was wondering when you were going to post about the AMAZING little Dudley. I'm so totally in love with that little huney -- he's SOOOO afectionate, even after everything he's been through!
Congrats again, and you're so amazing to have taken this little guy in - fleas and all!!
I :love: Dudley -- and Vegas, and Olive (don't want to make anyone jealous!!)

meb999 December 2nd, 2005 01:51 PM

Ps : Need More Pics!!!

Roxy's_MA December 2nd, 2005 01:54 PM

Congratulations!! How awsome for you!! The dog and the house are beautiful, and I'm sure the doggies will love the 2 acres to play around on.

BoxerRescueMTL December 2nd, 2005 03:11 PM

[QUOTE]Ps : Need More Pics!!![/QUOTE]
Hahaha, I know, I'm so lame - I keep circulating that same pic of Dudley. You can't even see his cute little face in it. I promise I'll get more soon!

SnowDancer December 2nd, 2005 04:22 PM

Congratulations and you are wonderful for rescuing this poor pup. I can imagine the condition Dudley was in. The groomer where my Eskie goes for socialization has Boxers (her newest pup is in love with my dog) - and at 5 months was about Dudley's weight when you found him so for a dog of his years, not good. My guy's g/f is now about 45 pounds to his dismay - he weighs 22 lbs. and everyone gets big except him. I also want to see Dudley's face. I had a "dream" maybe more of a nightmare, that my Eskie and the Boxer had pups (not possible - my guy was already fixed) - Eskie body with Boxer face. Yikes. My guy just loves Boxers - except has come to realization that the ones he sees on the street are not part of his "control" group. One even covers her eyes in anticipation of an Eskie hug. Don't blame her.
