    She really did! My daughter and I went outside for a couple of hours to tend to the critters (cleaned the chicken coop and cleaned the llama poop that finally got thawed out enough to scoop) . . . came inside and my boxer had tore into the presents for my nephews and my neighbor!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Money is really tight and I can't afford to buy them new presents!! I was so [​IMG] !! I know my neighbor will understand because she is an animal lover too (BTW I had bought her rooster mugs and tea set!!! She loves chickens too) - so at least I can still give her the mugs. But my brother doesn't have any animals and I know he is not going to want me to give his kids chewed up presents. [​IMG]

    Moral of the story? Don't leave your boxer alone with your Christmas presents! [​IMG] I guess the boys will be getting chickens under the tree this year. [​IMG]

    Thank you, luvschicks8 and Ms. FuzzyButts. [​IMG]

    I will figure something out. Right now I'm leaving the destruction on the floor so my husband can see it when he gets home from work. He used to get so mad at my keeshond mix for barking, but the boxer (his dog) is just as bad in her own way. It's a good thing I really love animals . . . [​IMG] For now, she's going to have to stay in the crate when we're not home!

    Growing up as a kid we had a big male boxer Dylan. We came home 1 day to find all the persents under the tree had been chewed open and he had eaten 6 boxes of chocolates. That dog ate me out of Barbie dolls as a kid too and my poor mum chased him round the garden pulling arms, legs and heads out his .... yep.
    Not im grown I have my own boxer, She stripped the christmas tree the 1st year and we had to move the decorations up the tree so only half of it was decorated, and Emma...she eats me out of socks and Crocs.
    I feel your pain. [​IMG]
