I guess I was destined to have Boxers. When I was young we had our first, Kaiser, I was afraid of the dark and he went to my room every night until I fell asleep. He was my protector and he was one of the family.
40 years later, I start over with boxers. Needless to say my first show Boxer I named after him, AKC and International CH Upstreams High Times Kaiser. He was my heart dog and it left a big hole when he was helped to the Rainbow Bridge at 11 from Degenerative Myelopathy (DM). Most all of my dogs are related to him, but few will ever compare.
I have been actively showing dogs since 2003, and started doing some of my own handling the last few years.
