Dedicated to Producing Quality NOT Quantity ! 


 Unfortunately we have lost our share of wonderful dogs over the years. Some we bred, some we purchased and owned and some we bred but they lived out their lives with their new families.  It is very difficult to pay tribute to each one separately but that doesn't mean we don't remember them all.

Oct. 2005 - Dec. 2014

Liberty started out life like all others. Unfortunately her first home was not ideal and thankfully she was returned to us where she lived out her life with our wonderful friends Lorraine and Ken.  She knew a great deal of love, was spoiled and happy right until the cancer stole her from us.

Hershee, RIP Sweet Girl

Hershee was a very sweet amazing girl. She was spry right until the end. She finished her Canadian Championship easily even though she was black masked brindle (no white on face). She had some great wins and one of my favorites was under respected Judge Jane Forsythe.  She was owner handled by Sheri for all her wins. Hershee loved everyone and enjoyed sunbathing, Panda (Frenchie) giving her endless facials and most of all being with her family. She leaves behind her 10 month old granddaughter Relic with us to start to show and fill her big paws in the ring.  We love and miss you more than words can express baby, RIP and romp freely.

Jack, RIP Big Guy !!
Jack was an amazing boy. Jack not only stole the hearts of many he brought a lot of joy into our lives. Jack was WD/BOW at the Boxer Club of Canada 2002, 2 weeks after arriving in Ontario.  He took BISS at the Western Ontario Boxer Club handled by Sheri in 2003.  Jack also placed in his large ABC class the year he attended, 2003.  Jack had many other great wins and plenty of group placements.  Aside from all his show success he produced some wonderful children and has left us with his 3 month old daughter Relic.  Jack we love you and miss you always.

If Tomorrow Starts Without Me
Author Unknown

If tomorrow starts without me and I'm not there to see,
the sun should rise and find your eyes filled with tears for me:
I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things we didn't get to say.

I know how much you love me, as much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me I know you'll miss me too.
But if tomorrow starts without me, Please try to understand,
An angel came and called my name and took me by the paw.
He said my place was ready, In heaven far above.
And that I had to leave behind all those I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye,
For all my life I'd always thought I didn't want to die.
I have so much to live for, So much left to do,
It seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterday's the good ones and the bad.
I thought of all the love we shared, and all the fun we had.

If I could relive yesterday, just even for awhile,
I'd say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realize this could never be,
for emptiness and memories would take the place of me.
Then I thought of worldly things I might come to miss tomorrow.
I thought of you when I did and my heart was filled with sorrow.
Then I walked through heavens gates, I felt so much at home,
When God looked down and smiled
at me from his great golden throne.

He said" this is eternity and all I promised you"
Today your life on earth is past, Here life starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow, But today will always last.
And since each days the same way there's no longing for the past.
You have been so faithful, So trusting and so true.
Though there were times you did some things you
knew you shouldn't do. You have been forgiven and now at last you’re free.
Won’t you come and take my hand and share my life with me?

So if tomorrow starts without me, Don't think were far apart.
For every time you think of me, I'm right here in your heart.
