We purchased our first Boxer in 1952. She was a plain faced red called Stella but was a double Helios Von Haus Germania grandaughter. We produced our first litter and campaigned a boy called

The Mindenwood Masterpiece who was by Frohlich Von Dom and did quite well but

we did not really travel far as cars were considered a luxury.

We purchased a dog called Drummage from Audrey Stephenson who had the Seacrest Boxers.

"Drum" became our first Champion and the showing of dogs as a hobby really took hold. We have shown extensively since that time, made up more Champions and CC winners and we are now both Championship Show judges. At Mindenwood we and the progeny have amassed 45CCs and 44RCCs  We have now also won 47 Green Stars and 22 R.G.S.

Besides the Boxers we have had Miniature Schnauzers, Great Danes and Griffons.

When you look across at the kennels it is interesting to note that all 9 dogs are

Championship Show winners and are all heart tested.
