Nearing 12 years old, Jasper is still in excellent health and physical condition. Just loves playing with younger dogs as most his age will not play fight with him. I imagine he will be around for a few years yet. After that, and for the first time in my adult life, we will likely go a while without a pet, even though it will feel weird we can get a lot of the type of travelling in that can't accommodate a dog, or at least makes it tough. After that, bring on another one. I love dogs.

But boxers never really grow up! I like that aspect of them.

While all the dogs I have had are inside quite a bit, they also loved to be outside much of the time, where they can get cooler fresh air and maybe visit with folks and their dogs out for a walk. If they wish to be outside, I am happy to accommodate them. If we leave the house, they are usually brought in.

We called 911, three big firetrucks and 10 EMT guys showed up, but by then I managed to stop the bleeding.
Ouch, Myron. Take care and heal well, okay.
