The White Lie

After returning from lunch today, I received the following email message from my Aunt Cathy about a boxer that she had just seen.

Dear Newman ~ I just had to tell you that I when I was at the doctor's office today, a man pulled into the parking space beside me and, low and behold, there was a white boxer sitting in the front seat of the car. Not knowing for sure the breed of the peculiar pup, I asked the owner, 'What kind of dog is that, sir?'

Proud as a peacock, the man puffed out his chest and confirmed what I thought ... that his K-9 friend was, in fact, a boxer. He continued by saying that the dog was the only one in a litter of seven and that they are very rare.

Love ~ Aunt Cathy B.


Dear Aunt Cathy ~ I do not doubt that you did see a white boxer. However, let me set the record straight. They are not rare by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, they are very common. My late sister Beulah Ruth had two all-white siblings.

Love ~ Newman
