DOG CALENDAR ENTRY


Hunter, Boxer
Neena Gulley, Owner

My name is Hunter but this past December, my parents decided to name me Rudolph the Big Nosed Boxer. I was very unhappy with the new moniker. You see, my parents decided to bring a screaming, ear-pulling baby into our lives this past November. Not that anybody asked me what I thought about that. We were all just humming along happily, and suddenly this horrible red screaming thing arrives and ruins everything. Except, around Christmas I decided to finally give her a chance, very reluctantly, mind you. Turns out, she's not so bad, although please don't think that I like her or anything. Because I don't. I really don't. Except for sometimes, when no one is looking, I like to sneak over to her and give her a few kisses. Definitely not because I like her or anything, but us red-nosed boxers like to stick together. Happy year, everyone! The holidays are long over, but the celebratin' is just beginning.

Hunter is a good boy, a wonderful son and brother! And very smart, like all boxers! Love, Dean

Hunter is the most beautiful and affectionate doggie there ever was. When he wears his Christams costume he is the envy of all the dogies in the neighborhood, in the Americas, int he World and in the Universe! I miss you hunter and love you

Tixie said...

I think Hunter deserves a COVER SHOT in this calendar not only because he is ADORABLE, but because he is obviously long-suffering and self-sacrificing. He kisses the "red horrible thing"? Surruptitiously or not...talk about making sacrifices and familial loyalty - GO HUNTER!!! :)

Hunter has taken to his baby sister...he is a sweet dog and a great big brother!
He likes to go for walks and loves for the entire family to be together.

Dear Hunter,
Sure, having that baby around is tough. But in no time she will be playing with you and love you unconditionally, just as you are loving her. You are good role model.

Zandile said...

Hunter is the best! He is filled with slobbery goodness! Go Hunter!

Hunter is a doll! And his resemblance to the original red-nosed guy is uncanny!

Hunter is the best dog, ever! He's not a cat, bu he's still a very good dog.

Hunter is a wonderful dog who loves his Meghan very much, ear-pulling and all. They're going to be the best of friends soon enough!

Karen said...

If indeed I did like dogs...Hunter would be my first choice.
He gets an A+ for the longest tongue and most slober...all of the above certainly makes him a top contender for the prize.

Natalie Green said...

don't worry hunter. You'll always be the first baby!

Hunter is my nephew and because I introduced you to him OF COURSE I will be leaving a comment for him... I am so happy I caused your boxer obsession!!!!!!!!! I am sure he will make an appearance on a calendar. He is so handsome. His cousin Carmella is very jealous. xoxoxoxo we miss you!

Kristine said...

Hunter is the BEST kisser there is! He's also quite the gentleman when he comes to visit.

Hunter is my granddog and there is not a more deserving dog than he to grace the Ponder Cove calendar. Hunter is an excellent big brother to Meghan and an all-around great dog.

The calendar would not be complete without Hunter's cute mug in it!!
without a doubt Hunter is the cutest!

Shelley said...

Of course, Hunter belongs on the calendar! He is patient and long suffering, after all! Never mind that he's so very handsome. Go Hunter!

Hunter
I feel your pain .... I get to be Rudolph the boxer too

Anonymous said...

Just wait until that ear puller starts feeding herself!! You won't believe all the food you will be able to clean off the floor!!! I feel your pain with the antlers; Mom makes me wear those, too.

Alex Young said...

Ahh, dear Hunter... umm... okay... that is d-e-A-r... yes... and he is... darling actually... My own dog, Elsa, and I have had occasion to visit and romp around with this fine fellow and let us both share that he's really quite fantastic... In fact, Elsa and I were recently up late in bed laughing over how much we agreed that, 'to know Hunter is to love Hunter'... so should any of you have the chance, we'd both wholeheartedly recommend that you spend some time getting to know this antlered-up cutie (and/or use his photographic likeness to improve the quality of any calendar-type publication)...

What a good boy - filling in for Rudolph, and sneaking kisses to the new baby!

Neena said...

For all to know, Hunter and Meghan are great friends. Many people have emailed me to ask whether I was serious about my original posting and whether there is bad blood between the two. If you've met Hunter, you know that he doesn't have a mean bone in his body and he loves and protects Meghan with all of his heart, even though she loves to torment him by pulling his ears and his nub. He's a sweetie and an important member of our family. Neena

Gloria said...

Hunter my dear , you should suck up to that baby because in no time she'll be dropping food on the floor for you .

Brandie said...

How sweet! Boxers really are the best! Hunter should win, hands down.

Copper said...

Ah, my mom makes me wear silly Christmas things, too. Last year she got one of those elastic collars with big silver bells on it. What was she thinking? HINT: Just look pitiful and they take them off quickly!

Looking forward to seeing you on the calendar!

Maryann said...

Hunter, you look SMASHING as a reindeer and I really hope to see you in that calendar! Uh ... would December be a good month? :)

Olly said...

Boxers don't usually like costumes but Hunter is a dream boy! Hey ... we want to see you in the calendar!

Esa said...

Boy, what a cutie! Hunter, you're a chick magnet - that face is priceless!

Paul said...

He's a good boy and deserves a shot on the calendar!

Anonymous said...

The faces of the boxer... they change so quickly & carry so many expressions... alas I don't think hunters will change until he sheds the 'antlers' LOL

Hunter is adorable, he should be included in the calendar.
In this year of boxing it out for the US presidency
, A BOXER is a most appropriate dog to show in the calendar.

You really should be the December photo for the calendar. You are just too delightful as Rudolph

There's something about a boxer dog in antlers! I treasure the photo of my dearly departed Buster in his.

Good boy, Hunter!
