Trump was the love of my life and extremely smart. He knew many verbal commands and hand signals too. He was a fierce watch dog and
defended himself if attacked by another dog, but was not one to start a
fight, but could always end one quickly as he was a big, powerful, muscular
male who tipped the scales at 85 pounds in trim condition. Trump also had outstanding conformation.
He loved children, his cat and the horses next door, who he would touch noses with.
To think I almost lost him
when he jumped off a dock into a lake in the very frigid water when he was
only about 6 months old. I was ripping off my winter coat and boots and
just ready to dive in after him, when he suddenly broke the surface of the
water full speed, and swam toward me! I think he was shocked how cold the
water was and sank to the bottom and then realised he could not breath. It was
his first time in the water and I was scared to death I would lose him and
he was drowning.
He was an incredible dog. He turned out to love the
water and liked to swim.
I had to have him put down from a cancerous tumor in his
spine at almost 10.
Trump is the sire of Cachet's Too Hot to Handle - Louie.

I lost Lola to a kidney infection at 5 years of age.   She is the dam of Mannix's Inkspot - Lita.
Lola was the only flashy pup from a litter of 3 pups. Her sweet black
faced sister Vita is pictured cropped at 14 weeks on my home page and again
on the puppy page at the top uncropped at 6 weeks. My adorable Lola can be seen at 6 weeks on the bottom of my puppy page with her 2 litter mates.
Lola was a delight to own, and very sweet. I can still see her running
through the back yard leaping up to hang onto tree branches. She would snap
them off and go tease the other dogs to play a game of chase me! Lola was
my tree pruner and many generations of my Boxers, still follow in
her paw prints.
She was smart, outgoing, always busy, just loved to bark
and tease and got along well with other dogs. She loved life, and was still
wagging her tail, even though very sick, as I held her when she had to be
put to sleep due to her failing kidneys.
Her legacy lives on through her 3 1/2 year old daughter Lita-Mannix's Ink Spot, and her new grandson
Solo-Mannix's Lone Ranger.
I miss you, my lovely girl!

The cute puppy on the left is Skeeter, who was Yetta,
Cooper and Austin's sister. I lost her to lung cancer this year at age 2 and 1/2. She was the smallest in the litter of 12 sired by Black Bart
out of Sydney.
Skeeter was a sweetheart and slept with me every night. She was an excellent house dog and did not get into things.
This is a photo of her grown in her favorite chair.
Simon and Seiben
Simon was born in May 1978 and Seiben was born in September 1979.
Simon was a white male my ex-husband wanted, so he purchased him for
$200.00. I trained him and got his CD.
I use to take Simon to nursing homes and do obedience
routines and let the people pet and hug him. He was great with
wheelchairs and very gentle with the elderly and Babies too.
It was so sad going into the nursing homes and the people really looked forward to
seeing the dogs and some would cry while hugging and petting the dogs
remembering the dogs they use to own. I left there almost in
tears at times, knowing how lonely they were.
He was a sweet dog. He died in my arms at 9 1/2.
Seiben is his nephew on his mother's side and was sired by Ch Trefoil's Choir Boy. In the early
'80's I showed him in the 6-9 class at ABC and he made the cut!! He never made size so I neutered him and
placed him with a nice family.
Tragically their house
caught on fire and Seiben ran out straight into the path of a fire truck and was killed instantly. Their son died in the fire, and they lost
their much loved boxer. It was very tragic.

This lovely puppy was an Ch Omega's Rockfire granddaughter. She is pictured with
Beverly Capstick, one of my mentors holding her when I first got her at 12
weeks at an ABC regional in Kentucky.
Bev is a popular all breed judge, accomplished artist and gives seminars on
structure and movement. Bev just retired from teaching last year. We
co-owned Havoc together in 1984
Havoc died exactly at 2 of lung cancer that
took her in 3 weeks, back in 1985. I was heartbroken. She was color
flow doplered clear of SAS, OFA excellent for her hips. I got her OFA
papers back the day she died.
Bob Forsyth gave Havoc her class in Futurity and his wife Jane Forsyth, gave her 2nd in a class of 18 bitches at the ABC
as a puppy. She had 5 points when she died.
