Wordful Wednesday - a little girl's best friend

We got Guira (named after a Dominican musical instrument) while we were in the Dominican Republic. Jillian was not even a year old. I honestly have regretted getting her at times, only because it has been another living thing that I have to care for. Though every time I feel annoyed because she wants to go outside for the 20th time in an hour . . . I have to admit that she is an INCREDIBLE dog. Between all of you girls, Guira has been attacked & 'played' with in every possible way - some of which are slightly embarrassing to describe in detail. Even with all of this 'loving', Guira has NEVER once bit, barked, growled, snipped, or been mean to either you girls or any other children who have been in her presence. Stella seems to have an extra bond with Guira, and I often find her laying with (or on) Guira talking to her. Sweet!

Love this post. We have a special dog in our house too. Your girls are very lucky to have such a great pet in their family :)

Awesome pics of the two of them too.

Love the new header.

What a great dog. Wish we were so lucky in our house - we have all bad dog behaviour!

She looks so sweet and I love how much the girls obviously adore their BFF. :)

I LOVE Boxers (and have 2 at the moment) and agree that they are incredible dogs. We used to have 3 boxers (Frankie died while I was pregnant with our twins) and when we had our farm I used to watch our friend's 3 boxers. So I had 6 boxers at my house all week. Luckily we had 10 acres! Boxers are known for their playfulness, their patience and their love for children (heck, they're kids themselves. At least they act like it!). Your dog is beautiful. Her coat is really shiny and she's built well. She makes me want to get another one since our boxers are old ladies now! lol!
