Three Generations of Champion Males.

This photograph was taken not too long before Bellringer died so it is a lovely keepsake. Bellringer, aged 10 is in the middle with his son, Ch Eight Bells on the right at 9 years and grandson, Ch Able Seaman on the left at 5 years. It was my pleasure to show all three throughout their show careers and together we hit the heights many times.

Ch Eight Bells of Seefeld
Jimmy...... Jimmy was not actually owned by me, but I 'found' him at 6 weeks , handled him throughout his life and in his eyes he was mine anyway! I had such a lot of fun in the showring with him. He was always turned on and never failed to give of his best for me. His last show was at the age of 11 1/2, only 6 weeks before he died of a spinal tumour, where he won the veteran class ...a great showman to the end loving every moment of his show days. He will no doubt best be remembered as the sire of Ch Ashgate Able Seaman of Seefeld, a top winner and producer in the UK. Jimmy and his sire were inseparable and lived together all their lives. They were two very special boxers who gave me so much pleasure.

Rupik Brass Tacks
Mac was a great character who did some good winning as a puppy. At the time I was unable to keep two males, so he went to Norway to Knut & Marit Anderssen where he won a CC and a number of RCC's. A daughter, Norw Ch Rupik Brassy Belle, followed him to his adopted country and she gained her title and took a group 1st along the way.

Rupik Pieces of Eight
Fraser is sired by Ch Eight Bells out of Bellringer's litter sister, Rupik Liberty Belle. Owned by my good friends John Cormack & Veronica Feaver (Sugarwood Boxers) he was a good winner in his youth and in fact as a veteran he is the only dog ever to have beaten Ch Eight Bells in veteran classes! This he did when Anne Rogers Clarke judged, taking first place with his sire standing second!! Fraser is still hale and hearty at 13 years of age

Fraser passed away at the age of 14 years. He is greatly missed
