A Rumour 'Bailey' won her 5th CC and Reserve Best
of Breed at the Sasolburg KC Championship show under local
judge Mrs M. Colborne in September 2012. It was the sweetest
CC I have ever won, as it has been a long journey for
Bailey to attain this last CC afer she lost all confidence
in people. I am so proud of her, and am so glad I persevered
with this brave girl.

Our dear friends Shane &
Edwina Bird who are now back in Australia just informed
me that their 11year old, the beautiful Tsavo, Ch. Chiswick
Geroge IV died last night from a heart attack (1st Oct.
2012). He was a wonderful companion for Edwina, Shane,their
3 children and Toshi their other Chiswick Boxer. He had
a fantastic life, travelled more than some people dream
of, having left South Africa for Mauritius, where he lived
on the beachfront, then left Mauritius for Australia. He
was my first Champion and through him Mark & I became
very good friends with Shane & Edwina. I thank them
with all of my heart for giving Tsavo the life he had. As
a breeder I could not wish for a better family for one of
my precious Boxers to go to. Thank you Shane & Edwina
for all you did for him. Sleep well big fella.

CRUFTS MARCH 2012
BIRMINGHAM, UNITED KINGDOM
In early October out of the blue Lucy was approached to
travel up to Kenya with the prospect of qualifying to represent
East Africa at Crufts. So off we went, Lucy was a hit, she
worked with many breeds helping the various owners and expertly
handling their dogs to some super awards.
It was a wonderful experience with a great crowd of show
exhibitors. The organisers of the East Africa Kennel Club
were so welcoming to us both, and when it came to the Junior
handler class, they gave Lucy a glowing account of what
she was planning to do for the club and this region of Africa.
Lucy is so proud to have this opportunity especially as
her granny was born in this region of Africa, and meeting
all of the committee members and the exhibitors gives her
a real bond with them. Lucy did them proud.
At Crufts Lucy handled a Pointer, Tibetan Terrier, 2 Newfoundlands,
1 Boxer and a Labrador puppy . “It was the most unbelievable
experience of my life, I have been invited back to the UK
to handle for the Newfoundland people, and was approached
by a Labrador breeder to go to the States and handle for
