Chris and I are fostering a 10 month old deaf white boxer from Kentucky and his name is Bud. He is the sweetest thing in this world and all of our dogs have really taken to Bud. Since we started our other blog and website we are very busy helping deaf dogs find home all over the United States. Bud was out in the country so I felt he would have a much better shot at finding a home if he came here here on the farm for a few weeks to learn his basic canine good citizen training. Over the next few weeks I will teach Bud his ASL sign commands, loose leash walking, crate training and  he will be fully socialized by the time he goes to his new home.

Here are a few photos I took of Bud and Nitro today in the back yard. Enjoy!

The photos below were taken last Thursday when we got back from transporting Bud from Kentucky. We took him to meet Nitro and all of Nitro's buddies at the Salem Rotary Dog Park. He had never ever been to a dog park and he was such a good boy playing with all the other dogs. I was very proud of him.

 Meeting his "brother from another mother!"

 They are mirror images of each other with the exception of Nitro's pretty blue eye.

 Such a cute puppy!

 Meeting his foster daddy for the first time. Chris was smitten as soon as he met Bud.

 This is our 4 Boxketeers and this is how they roll....

I saved the best for last. When I took this photo  of Bud this morning I was cracking up because it reminded me of the George Costanza pose on Seinfeld. When I finally found George's pose I was laughing so hard because Bud even had his back knee bent. He totally nailed George's pose. What do you all think?

Lexi, Tallulah, Bailey, Nitro, Bud, Chris and I wish you a very Happy Labor Day weekend!


  1. So sweet! I just know Bud is going to do well in his classes with you and learn his Boxer manners well. Kudos to you for being his teacher, and Nitro his mentor. This is wonderful! Look at the four of them and how gorgeous the boxer breed is. Love it!! Good luck to Bud. :-))

  2. Really lovely pix. Have a great Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. LOL Love the George Costanza!

    Good luck with Bud's training and his search for a forever home. People who foster rock.

  4. I can't stop laughing!!! Bud is such a cutie pie:-)Rocco has a dead dog friend at his group training class, she is such a smart girl and is doing some advanced obedience and agility. Great job guys!

    1. Thank you...these two are a riot to hang out with for sure.

  7. Bud is so adorable! We're sure he'll do very well in his classes. Looks like he fits right in w/the rest of the Boxer crew!

    1. He does fit in but I think 5 dogs is one to many for us right now.

  8. Your foster is such a cutie!! He sure looks right at home with Nitro. :)

  9. Hey girl! He is right at home. I'm going to be very picky where he goes because he has stolen our hearts. I hope you and the pups are doing well and I see you are all at the beach this week. I need tips on dog friendly vacation spots. Talk to you soon! Have fun!
