Your little girl is just beautiful! Maybe you & your dad can walk the dogs together? I found family dog-walking a great bonding experience for all of us.
Your pup's made me miss having dogs!
We never did our boxer's ears either. I do kinda of enjoy the look, but then again I REALLY don't want everyone assuming that she's some crazy aggressive dog- and I think the ears being cropped escalates the image. My dad and I do go on short walks together mostly to the woods, but not very often. He's not in the best of shape, lol, I don't know why he wants such high energy breeds, I usually just get stuck by myself. Dogs are really great to have if you have the time for them though, I watch a show called "Animal Miracles" every morning and the stuff your dog will do for you is just insane.
