Hi there, I have a new ten week old boxer boy pup and a three year old male cat. My pup is named Baxter and my cat Chloe (we thought chloe was a girl when he was a kitten and the name stuck). I grew up in a boxer household but oh my is it different when you're training a puppy on your own. Chloe is in high dudgeon and has temporarily left home. He'll be back when he's hungry. He generally spends most of his time outdoors anyway. Baxter is adorable, but very willfull and I think perhaps he was the leader in his litter. He loves his toys but prefers my feet, books and the back of the sofa. I'm currently trying to get him to sleep in the kitchen on his own, which means I feel like a very mean mum listening to him whimper. But I know if I give in he'll never get used to it. My main reason for getting Baxter is that I live on my own and am unable to work due to long term mental health problems. I'm hoping that having a dog will help me get out more and be less isolated, and will also be good company. That's if he doesn't drive me bonkers in the next few weeks lol. He's an absolute gem and I love him to bits already. I just hope my neighbours are understanding of the barking these first few days.
