Welcome to the board, hbogie!

Every so often, someone posts on the board about a dog with the same behavior. It seems to be something that boxers are especially prone to.

Here's one of the threads that talks about it:

Not sure anyone figured out how to eliminate the head tremors, but usually they don't seem to be dangerous.

Um...I don't suppose you have any pics of your boxer you'd like to share with us, do you?
