Love Is a Three Letter Word

Posted on December 12, 2015 by CJ Robinson | 0 Comments

Three letters you ask? Why yes because the three letters that mean love to me are D-O-G! I have always loved animals and growing up on a farm made that part of my being. We raised Champion Arabians horses and also had chickens, cats and lots of dogs, a Newfoundland, German Shepard, Bloody Hound, Labs, Old English Sheepdog and more. I owe a lot of my upbringing to these animals as they taught me compassion, patience and understanding. It wasn't until I moved to NJ and got my first dog that was mine and only mine did I really under unconditional love. Her name is Dakota and I met her at the mall near my home. She was this beautiful brindle boxer puppy and I had never felt a connection so big as when we took her into the cubicle to see her and she licked my leg. That was it, she chose me. 

She was MY first dog, MY first boxer and from there on out boxers became my favorite breed. A few months after I brought her home, I quit my corporate job in NYC and was now an entrepreneur starting my own Marketing and PR firm. Always in the back of my mind I thought, I would love to open a dog store and call it the Dakota Dog Company. Several years went by and I didn't start it. Then when Kota was 6 1/2 she contracted Thrombocyclopenia (an auto immune disease where her immune system kills off her white blood cells). We got her over the first attack but 3 weeks later she had a terrible infection in her back lymph node that she couldn't fight because we were suppressing her immune system. She went septic and was in critical care for 8 days, every day was a challenge, I had never seen an animal so sick. She fought for 4 days until the doctors were able to grow the bacteria culture and saw that the antibiotics they were giving her were not working. So she fought all by herself to live. for those four long days. They gave her a different antibiotic and it worked! She would have one more relapse, that counted as the third time I almost lost her. It was then that Kota taught me one of my biggest lessons, don't put off what you can do today because tomorrow is not guaranteed. The Dakota Dog Company was born. 

My beloved Dakota has taught me patience, unconditional love, ambition and to live for each day. My other girls Montana and Sedona continue to echo these things and give me a reason to wake up every day. My girls are my everything, my best friends and I love them more than I can describe.

D-O-G is a three letter word, L-O-V-E is a three letter word.

BADAZZ BOXERS

Posted on November 02, 2015 by CJ Robinson | 1 Comment

 

Badazz Boxers was started as a way to give to boxers at rescues waiting for their forever homes. Dakota has been my first boxer and has made me fall in love with the breed. I wanted a way to give back as my girls have brought me so much joy and my heart goes out to all those babies I see at the rescues.
Instead of simply giving money to the rescues, we want to find out what they really need for the babies and send it to them, be it treats, toys, collars, leashes, etc. This is the way that we can insure the proceeds from the items sold will go directly to the boxers. 
We wanted to create cool and fun boxer items that were nondescript so the images could be any boxer, no matter the color or sex, we also wanted natural ears as it is so hard to find anything with their ears not cropped. You may also notice the date 1895 on the Badazz Boxers logo, that is the date Boxers were first introduced in Germany, fun boxer fact. We also wanted hand baked treats for the pups to enjoy that were made in the U.S.A.
We also know it will be a journey to be able to help these babies but hopefully with everyone's help we will be able to do just that. We will post boxes going out with details about the rescue they will be going to, we hope to do this quarterly.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting us and other boxer babies waiting to find their forever homes.
xoxoxo,
CJ, Kota, Tana and Donut
