It was a privilege for Larry
and I to know Leo and even more of a delight to
own two of his offspring who brought not only prestigious wins to us
love and devotion as family members. We own Am.Can
Ch. Heart Acres Wind
Line - "Wendy" and Am.Can.
Ch. Syrr Run's Omega Connemara - "Megan".
We know they were Leo's offspring
because he implanted many of his endearing
qualities in them!! They were energetic and playful puppies who adored
toy and now as they are mature adults they still have to have their
hour in the morning. Like Leo, they loved to eat, it is the highlight
their day and also like Leo they do the "Leo Dance" before
Leo's temperament was of the highest caliber and he has passed that
his get and now his grandchildren. He also never outgrew his fascination
It was a spectator's delight
to see Leo in the ring. He obviously enjoyed
every minute of it and gave it his all - his big reward was the bait,
always worried about the handler giving it to him as he took it with
than average enthusiasm! We only knew him in his senior years but he
have been a magnificent sight in his youth.
On several occasions both
Wendy and Megan had the distinct honour of being
chosen to go in the ring with Leo for "Stud and Get". Our
burst with pride as we would see the three of them together. We thank
"Big Guy" for bringing so much joy into our lives. He has
had a lasting
impact on the Boxer breed and we will miss him.
