Our true involvement with boxers started in 2001 when as a present from Tracy we received our first bundle of joy.(Milly)
I had been working late that evening. Nothing special there, but what was special was the fact that at home was something that would change our lives more than anything we had ever imagined.
As time went on, we got more and more involved with Milly and started to show an interest in the show ring. We were total novices at this and soon realised that she was not good enough in the eyes of the professionals (she was to us by far), nevertheless we had received the virus, the virus of the show ring.
There were two ways we could go from here, try and breed our own or buy one in.
So we tried to breed our own, we searched the Internet for the best breeder that we could find, this is when we found our good friend Diane Bridgeman (Dibrid boxer). A relative newcomer to the boxer world, A mine of useful information.
Having spent just a few minutes on the phone we realised this was the kennel that we would use to help us build our own kennels.
Marbleton Rockin Robin@ Dibrid was an excellent boyfriend for our Milly. The mating went very well and we ended up with 14, yes 14 pups, (the world record for boxers is 15).
From her litter we kept 2 pups, Oliver and Molly. The real start to our kennel.
Oliver won his first trophy at the Northern boxer club match night in 2005, hopefully with many more to come, Molly has never been good in the showring (correction, we have never been good in the show ring with her, but we are learning all the time).
A never-ending journey within the boxer world
