December 19, 1999 - What was I thinking when I got a white dog??

September 15, 2000 - Joxer loves kiddie pools, tubs and any small body of standing water in the summer, which is pretty typical of Amstaff's I understand.

September 15, 2000 - My fabulous boy.
Marty and I are pretty sentimental about this dog. One of the reasons I became curious about this "most beautiful of ugly dogs" as the American Staffordshire Terrier has been called was the amazing loyalty owners show this breed. As the old cigarette ads put it, "we'd rather fight than switch."

December 24, 2000 - I don't know what makes me do this sort of thing - Joxer endures it as well as he is able.

January 1, 2001 - Joxer on his favorite rug.

January 17, 2001 - A picture taken by daddy.

February 17, 2001 - February in Minnesota.

February 25, 2001 - Oh no! The dastardly antlers are back! I think he's refusing to look into the camera on purpose.

February 25, 2001 - OK, now he's squinting... I'm never goiing to get that Christmas card photo at this rate.

February 25, 2001 - Sometimes a little guy needs a boost to see out of the window.

April 21, 2001 - Anticipation is making me wait... Here Joxer is waiting for Marty to throw his toy.

April 29, 2001 - Joxer stares into the middle distance while Lola devours a toy.

April 29, 2001 - Joxer was an only dog for 3 months after we lost our old dogs in 2000 ( Mako, Echo and Boomer); he did not enjoy it. Since Lola joined our family they have been nearly inseperable. Even when she pesters him mercilessly as puppies are prone to do, he does not abandon or punish her.

May 13, 2001 - We took a walk around Como Lake.

May 13, 2001 - Smile for Marty!

January 23, 2005 - Joxer is a Steelers fan.
