Sully - 8 months old!

It was not long ago that Sully was in a vet hospital fighting to live.  I nearly lost him and, because of that experience, I make a point of celebrating each milestone.  Today, we celebrate that he's 8 months old!  When he was so sick, he lost a little over 20% of his body weight and recovery took a long time.  But now he weighs 49 pounds and is gaining muscle every day.  Take a look!

Here's Sully guarding against a sparrow sitting on top of the block wall.  Or maybe it's a blade of grass ... who knows!  Whatever it is, he is ready to protect his territory!

And then there's the back gate.  There MUST be something on the other side.  Sully will end up going to the little peep hole you see in the gate; that was put there by Major, my first Boxer.  Every Boxer since then - Jager, Gwennie, Esa, Olly, Ivy and Sully - has used that peep hole to see what's in the alley.

Sully is a very vocal Boxer.  He talks when he runs, when he's hungry, when he's playing ... even when he sleeps!

After a tough and exhausting time of guarding the backyard, it's time for a brief rest.  And, trust me, his times of rest ARE brief.  LOL!

  1. Sully is such a handsome boy ... He's filled out nicely - Would never guess he was as sick as he was only a few months ago!

  2. Sully has become a very happy and healthy dog. The Dakota Sioux Indians have a saying: What does not kill you, makes you strong. Sully's illness has made him one stronger warrior. --- Carol
