    Hello all

    Well the last of our boxer puppies went to there new homes yesterday, and they have all gone to the most fantastic homes. One lady travelled 220 miles which I couldn't believe but she wanted our lines and I am really proud of how beautiful and perfect the pups were and that someone was preperred to travel that far.
    But now I feel so so sad and can not stop crying, I feel like someone has died, I am absolutely heart broken. I really don't know how people churn dogs out and don't care about them.

    Anyway I am just over reacting, will I settle down in a few days. Because right now I feel so so depressed.

    thanks

    Tracy

    Awww hun
    I really feel for you :(
    After having so much energy bouncing around you for weeks on end it must seem such a loss...
    I think you need to keep yourself busy and spend time concentrating on mum of the pups & getting your home back to normality :)

    I have a 11 week old homebred pup & could not imagine letting her go.
    She has become such a big part of the family...
    Thankfully I knew from the mating onwards that I could keep the pups (we had 2 born, sadly one crossed the bridge)

    Its the only part of having pups that makes me not wish to do it again...
    As I can't keep keeping them if I were to breed again.

    Anyway put your feet up & be thankful you have the time to do so + you can stay intouch with all the pups new owners :)

    thanks girls, I feel like I'm going insane. Can't put my feet up because every time I do I start crying again lol.. Am still in pjs have eaten loads of crap which is just making me feel worse, have out the house back together yesterday bathed Lola taken her for a big long hike, bought her loads of treats and a new bed.

    We didn't keep a pup this time, because we want a boy and then obviously if we had kept one of Lolas then keeping them apart at seasons would be a nightmare. But now wish I'd kept one of the girls. Was going to wait and get another one next year but am so upset have been looking now, but want a particular looking boxer so will take my time. I'll know when I see him he's the right one, I want a red one with a perfect flash and a big squigy face........bugger it I'm crying again now!!

    Mollys mum are you keeping one, have you found homes for them all, it's so hard letting go. Luckily for us all the owners are experienced boxer owners and will keep in touch, which you'd think would make it a bit easier......but nope I'm still bloody crying lol

    xx

    I think the fact you feel like this just shows how caring and loving you are. try to relax and enjoy the peace and think of the joy and happiness you have given to the people who are lucky enough to have one of your puppies.

    Sending you a hug xx

    Hey come on you will start me off in a minute ;) I get upset just thinking about when they go, they have become such a huge part of my life and I love each & everyone of them. Yes I am keeping one a girl although still haven't made up my mind which one either Sammy or Sunshine.
    Sunshine is going to be big bless her although she has such a chilled personality.

    Keep smiling and think how many happy families are enjoying their new puppy x x

    I cried for days when our last pup went last year, she went off to London in a chaffeur driven limo!!! All her goodies had been brought from harrods and she was going to a home with another Boxer and plenty of land etc and was going to get some heavy pampering!!!!!!!!!! Didnt stop me stressing though and although i cant say who she went to , they have kept in contact and she is def top dog in that house!!!!!

    The worse to deal with pups going are the kids........when my daughters fav pup was due to leave, she locked herself in room with him and hid all his papers etc!!!!!!!!

    i couldn't imagine breeding if i had girls.....i definitely wouldn't be able to give those pups up so i know how you feel.

    I saw how sad my breeder looked when we took Mika. She burst into tears and said 'if we have any problems, we'll bring him back right?' I felt for her.

    Molly's mum...pics of your babies if poss please? I haven't seen them since they were born!

    I was very sad once I really thought about the pups going but by the time they started to go we realised that they really needed to go to homes where they would get individual attention and start on their path to well behaved, well socialised dogs that would give a lot of joy to the people who had them.

    So no crying but a pout or two as I see the pictures of how lovely my puppies are and how much they are changing in only a couple of weeks

    Awww you soppy bunch! :p

    I do feel sad to see them go, but we tend to get to know the puppy buyers pretty well from visits and stuff and just seeing how happy and excited they are to be taking their new baby home does make me feel better about it all.

    A couple i have got really sad about, ones that i've got particularly attached to. In our first litter one little boy i had planned to keep from when he was about 3 weeks old so got really attached to him. But when it became apparent that one of the other boys had some problems (turns out he has slight brain damage due to complications during the caesarian) i decided to keep him instead so it was terrible seeing him go, i was gutted. BUT, his new owners keep in touch, he has a fantastic home and they really do love him. And i have my Riley who is special to say the least, but i wouldnt change him for the world! :D

    I went through all this a few weeks back and i still miss them all:(

    I have kept in close contact with with all new owners and the pups are all doing so well in there new homes this is what makes it worth while!

    One couple that had one had been looking for a while and viewed so many litters and i was so happy when they decided to have one of our babies things like this make me want do it all again.

    Breeding is hard at times but can also be so rewarding as well:)
