The Adventures of a Tripawd Boxer


The Fan Club

Bubba's fan club!

Being our first child, Bubba has always been a popular boy in our family.  In the days before his surgery, I received more phone calls, facebook posts, emails, and text messages than I did when I gave birth!

Last Friday, one day after Bubba’s readmission to the hospital, our doorbell rang.  There stood 6 kids from the neighborhood who all said in unison, “we hope Bubba gets better soon.”   Wow.  I was moved!  Joseph, our 8 year old, has been keeping a verbal blog with the kids in the neighborhood about Bubba!  He also got to tell his classmates all about canine amputation.  I am so  impressed with Joseph’s maturity and his ability to handle this situation so well.  I am learning so much from Bubba and Joseph!

Bubba has always been the forbidden dog on the block.  Bubba’s oversized, brindle, foaming, drooling physique does not earn him many smiles from strangers!  He loves children and stops to watch every kid he see’s in hopes that he might find someone to play with.  I understand that most adults might see this beast staring down their kids and think he might have a different motive…..

Nonetheless, the children on the block have grown to love Bubba!  Word spread fast of Bubba’s homecoming.  Today, 4 children came to my doorwall to see their friend’s dog “who has 3 legs.”   One of the girls asked, “How old is he?”  I said, “he’s almost 10!”  She replies, “wow, I’m 10.  Can I give him a treat?”  Of course!  She came back, climbed over Bubba’s gate and fed him a treat.  It was so sweet.  And, there was my son, Joseph, smiling.  Bubba was thrilled with all this attention from his favorite generation of people – children.

Thank-you, Joseph, for knowing exactly what your dog (and your mom) needs!

    Yay Bubba! Aren’t Boxers the best dogs? Our Finchy loves kids and kids love him once they get past the outward appearance. And what a wonderful son your Joseph is. What a heart he has!

    Thanks to Bubba, I have fallen in love with Boxers! I have always loved dogs – all dogs – but allergies keep me from certain breeds.

    The bond he has with kids is amazing. He becomes an instant babysitter! Also, that dog has so much patience with kids – I am constantly amazed. He has been eye-poked, stub-grabbed, sat on, stepped on, ear pulled, etc. He doesn’t even flinch! He just stares at me as if he’s saying “really? come on, do something!”
