Boxer Jowls= Sticky Swiffer!

How many of you are forever pulling a pull a piece of hair, string, leaves, toy fur, crusted whatever off of your babies jowls?!??!? It seems I do this everyday with Payton, I swear he's like a sticky swiffer!!!! (who needs to buy one of those when we've got one built into our furkids!!! )

I've never had to do this with any other dogs I've had...
Must be a Boxer thing!

All the time. I even bring paper napkins with me on our walks to keep Edie's face clean.

Re: Boxer Jowls= Sticky Swiffer!

all the time here too! i'm constantly pulling grass, ROSE PETALS, dirt, slobber, etc. out of their mouths/lips! sometimes we don't realize it until we're slimed! ewww.... it's funny, though, when they get treats or food stuck up in their jowls, i always laugh and say they're saving it as a snack for later!

Re: Boxer Jowls= Sticky Swiffer!

This is so funny-- I was just going to write a post on this myself! I'm always pulling twigs, leaves, bugs, etc. out of Brody's jowels, but today he had what can only be described as a small branch hanging from his lips. I swear, it was about a foot long, and he just walked around the yard with it dangling from his chops, completely oblivious! I rushed to get videotape of it but the batteries were dead in the camera.
There was also a time when I had to pull the MUTANT ANT FROM HELL out of his lips; this thing was a GIANT (ever see the movie "Them"?), and who knows how long it crawled around in there before it actually died. And then there's the earthworms that he loves so much . . .
I'd have to say the biggest mess, though, was the bag of Mardi Gras confetti he got into. It took me the rest of the day to scoop all of that out his mouth.

All the time with Billy. At the moment he has cream to put on his jowls as they we very sore & bleeding. I can only assume they he hurt them on his weekly soup bone. Just when we think they are all better we notice blobs of blood around the house!!! He covered my friends Golden Retriever with blood when the were wrestling the other day. Woops!!

Yes!! All the time Chief is forever having yellow tennis ball fuzz around his jowels! It's quite lovely against the black mask!

Re: Boxer Jowls= Sticky Swiffer!

As a matter of fact just today alone I have pulled the following out of Splash's jowls and mouth:

1. Gum wrapper
2. Tin foil
3. Pine needles
4. Bark from a branch he insisted on dragging around the neighborhood
5. Paper towel
6. Dust from under the bed (where he was looking for the cat)

and I am sure there will be more!! :-)

Re: Boxer Jowls= Sticky Swiffer!

For the last 8 days- Easter grass! Just when you think you have it all thrown away, another piece pops up, in Mackensie's jowls of course! Just like tinsel...even when you don't use it on your tree, somehow the dog finds it!!
