What's In a Name?

So Mayzie wanted to know about efurrybody's names...

Calhoun was Calhoun when he was 4 weeks old but for a minute before that, his name was ANGUS!!!

Lucy was Shelby before we picked her up that fateful night in September. I like Shelby (Steel Magnolias) but not for Lucy.

McIver was born as part of the "M" litter of potential service dogs . The group that sponsored the litter wanted to name all the pups after families, streets, etc that were prominent to our local city.

Nikki's full registered name is Le Femme Nikkita. So dark and perfect for a black German Shepherd!

Harry didn't have a name because he just wandered up to my uncle's farm. Lilly came from a rescue but I don't truly remember her name. I think it was Pearl or something. Whatever it was, didn't fit...

McIver's Take

Hi Efurryone! McIver here. Usually Calhoun has control of this blog but he let me fill in today. It's been a while since we posted but we've been around.

I think Momma has told you about me but I'd like to tell you in my own words. You see, I am often misunderstood. People think I am so serious but I am actually a pretty funny guy! I love to make funny noises when I yawn or sigh! I also like to open the babygate with my snooter.

Can anyone else do that?

I like to do zoomies in the living room which includes jumping on the couch. Tummy rubs are oh so soothing.

It's also really fun to play this game I made up. If Momma or Daddy ignores me, I just put my snooter unner their hands and throooowwwww it up in the air! THAAAATTTT gets their attention.

Sometimes Momma tries to hide her face from me in the couch. Then I use my snooter to move all the couch cushions and WAAAALAAAA there she is! Duh! And then I get TONS of smooches on my snooter.

So anyways, I am not that serious. So what if I don't like that many people? Loving my Momma and Daddy is just enough for me- if Calhoun would just let me squeeze in there somewhere.

I also really like to assist Momma whether she is on a walk or cooking dinner. She can always count on me!

Yep- I think this home is gonna be just fine for me. Yeah, yeah. I get it Calhoun is the big dog in charge. Lucy and Nikki have their own silliness going on but they are fun to run and dig with. And Momma and Daddy always make special snuggle time for me.

So nice to meet all of you! If you don't mind, I am gonna kick back and relax now.

Snooter sniffs,


PeeS Thank goodness that CONE is gone. I don't efur want annuder one! And thanks for wishing me well!

Why Momma Loves Sheppies...

So Momma loves us Boxer babies cuz we are lovable and snuggleable. For some reason she loves her Sheppies too! She says she likes their drive. I got drive too! I love to drive myself to da couch and snooze. I like to drive myself to da store and get some noms. I like to drive myself to da edge of da yard and bark at stuff.

Apparently it ain't da same?

Sheep are weird.

Licks and Wiggles,

P.S. Momma has been slack about posting but she's been reading all your blogs to us.

On LIVESTRONG Day, October 2, 2010, we come together to raise awareness and funds for the fight against cancer.

We do this in honor of those we love, those who are fighting and those we hope will never have to fight this fight.

But mostly, we do this in memory of those we loved- still love-, those who have impacted our lives in unimaginable ways and those who fought this fight until the very end.

May all of you and your furbabies live full, healthy and happy lives.
