I have only a few breedings left on Sabre. I may consider selling a vile if the bitch is proven and she has traits that I feel compliment Sabre's. I also would prefer the bitch to be genetically plain.

Sabre is a LEGION of MERIT in BOTH the U.S and Canada!!!!

Sabre and I ready to start the heeling exercise"!

Sabre and I had a connection, that very few are fortunate enough to share with their dogs. His desire to please, his hunger of attention and the spotlight, all gave him that endless zest for the showring. Sabre was truly that "once in a lifetime" dog and had the whole package!

Sabre was a beautifully structured Boxer and had the most outstanding sweet temperament you could ask for! He was best known for his ground covering movement, beautiful Boxer head and his undeniable showmanship. He excelled in both the conformation and obedience rings!

The rapor I had with Sabre, developed early on and to this day and very few can think of one of us, without the other. We were a team and so many people would tell me "he would have never shown that way for anyone but you" and I know deep in my heart, they were right. He loved his "Mom" and the memories we made together, will forever remain some of the best of my life.

Not a day goes by that I don't think about Sabre and miss him. Although I know I'll never own such an amazing Boxer ever again....I feel so blessed, that I was the one who got to share my life with Sabre. He had so much love for everyone he met and through him, my life was changed forever.

When I lost Sabre, a huge part of me died along with him. His death has been the hardest thing in my life that I have had to overcome and 7 years later I still can hardly speak about him without crying. I truly don't know who loved the other more. I just pray that when my time on earth is done, we will be re-united in heaven, where I can hold him in my arms again. I truly believe that a love this strong, never dies and we will see each other again one day.
