I finally gave Mr. Chicken to Miss Brown yesterday. He was a huge hit. She carried him around for awhile by his drumsticks. That alone was worth the price of admission for me. Then she curled up in her bed, with him tucked up under her chin, and napped for awhile.
It was all a ruse to get me to stop paying attention. As soon as I got sidetracked, she was off like a shot, to the big bed, where she endured a few more pictures. AND THEN... And then, there was the chomping of the itty bitty delectable drumsticks. It took her longer than I thought it would, but she did finally manage to disarticulate one of them, at which point I immediately took custody of poor Mr. Chicken.

Also, do you know what kind of a pain in the behindermost it is to sit on the floor to take a picture of the cat? I've mentioned before that Some Dogs think that sitting on the floor is Cause for Concern. Well, one of those Some Dogs thinks she needs to get right in your face, just to see if you're Okay, which makes picture taking a little difficult. Hrmf!
That is why there is a slightly out-of-focus close-up of Some Dog, instead of a cute picture of an old black cat playing with a PepsiCokesodapop bottle top.

Especially loved the macros of Mr. Chicken. Of course, Miss Brown is as fetching as usual.

I thought I should get some shots of him pre-dismemberment. He is or was an especially cute rubber chicken. I should also add that his squeak was more of a throaty bullfrog honk. Tres cute.

Quite so!
I never thought much of Boxers until I starting getting to know Harriet through your posts. I definitely have a great appreciation for them now, expecially her.

Too funny! Great pix!

Thank you both! Though I'm not sure Miss Brown's ego really needs any more inflation.

Thanks! To be honest, *I* didn't really think much of Boxers before I got Harriet. She quickly turned me into a sucker for the breed, though.

I have always loved the breed, but I have never seen a more iconic exemplar than Miss Harriet Brown. You will be glad to inform her that the final item for her Nova Scotia Goodie Box is now in stock, and I will pick it up tomorrow. Reilly or Muggins will mail the package by the end of the week!
Also, my new Favourite-Dog-Photo-Of-All-Time is the one of Miss Brown holding Mister Chicken delicately by his tiny-but-elegant drumstick.

Makes me smile whenever I look at it!

She is something special, for sure.
I have said this before, but after my experience breed searching, with the help of rpd*, I really do believe it's important to take a good look at what you need, then find the dog that fits your criterial. When I was first dog hunting, I had a vague idea that I wanted something fluffy and pointy-eared. That's what appealed to me aesthetically. But everywhere I looked, Boxers kept popping up. I was visualizing something more like a GSD, so let's just say that I was not impressed with how Boxers looked. I went out and met a bunch of Boxers, though, and took a leap of faith got Harriet. It took me about half a second to fall in love with her.
If I hadn't followed the advice of folks here, I would have gone about things backwards and ended up with a pointy-eared fluffy-butt who was not at all the right dog for me. And I may never have found out just how perfect for me Boxers are.

Yay! Thank you, Miss Brown will be *so* excited!

But everywhere I looked, Boxers kept popping up.

I met these two Boxer mix pups today. Very friendly and uber cute, the pics don't do them justice:
