'Tribute to Leo'
By Pat Russell - Trifecta Boxers

I first saw Leo walking sedately beside Jennifer Killman in her wheel chair. We were at the national in the parking lot with dogs, motor homes and people. I just stopped and stared. I all ready had my Leo son Barclay, CH Glennroe Cosmic All Star. I took every opportunity that week to see Leo. He stood out where ever he was. The consummate show dog; but more importantly to me the consummate companion.

That week Barclay's first litter was conceived. Out of that litter came my first two homebred champions. Both BOB winners, one a national futurity Best 9-12. A couple of years latter my second litter and two more homebred champions. One of those AM/CAN Ch Trifecta's Touch Gold, Derby, a multiple BISS, multiple Group Ones, and two time Top Twenty contender. The other Lola, Ch Trifecta's Winning Colors finished completely owner handled. To date Barclay has five champions, two more only needing a major.

The strength of Leo's personality lives in all his children and grand children. Through out most the temperament is so strong. Trustworthy, confident and silly. Leo loved his toys. Barclay is nine now, but still carries a toy with him most of the time. Grandson, Derby has a quacking Duck that drives us all crazy.

Leo's ability to stamp his get with his great qualities will be historical. Further his get carry the same ability. The mark of a truly great producer. A presence where ever they go. Show dogs when necessary, companions always, clowns and playing all their lives.
