LOL---I felt I had to post at least 1 positive happy post. My youngest Boxer boy was just 12 months old this past weekend when he went Best of Winners and Best of Breed up in Ferndale, California. This was his 5th show point and all have been owner-breeder handled.
We were up in the redwoods and sadly the smoke was very thick from all the forest fires we are having. The redwoods are still very much a lovely site. And the coastal town of Ferndale is quaint.
Thank you folks :) I am quite proud of my young Toby. He has two plainly marked fawn siblings that are also pointed in the Midwest. This was a litter we planned for a long time and was much anticipated. Even with the best planning, you always hope that Mother Nature will smile on you.
That is an awesome accomplishment - especially owner/breeder handled. I want to get into the ring myself someday (right now WAAYY too chicken ). Congrats to you and Toby, and I hope you gave him a really good treat!!!

Your Toby is absolutely gorgeous. He is so cute! And as I looked through his pictures, I could see how much he's grown! He is sure a show dog, and an outstanding one! I am sooo happy for you! (And Toby.) May the best of luck be with you and Toby during his other contests. God bless,
LOL---taking my lumps in the ring comes with the hobby. As long as the dogs are happy, then I am happy. I have been fortunate enough to be able to handle several breeds over the years. Boxers and French Bulldogs are the most fun :)
