Occasionally a spectacular dog comes into your life and you are never quite the same.
Ch Shadows Nairobi did just that
It started at the New Jersey Boxer Club when Bogie won a 5 pt major from the puppy classes and soon finished his championship at 14 months with 3 majors and 2 specialty wins. He began his Specials Career immediately in the very competitive Northeast and competed as a Top Twenty Boxer at the National.
His contributions to the Breed include his excellent conformation, strength of body and character, soundness in temperament, health and that stunning head and undeniable expression. Bogie epitomizes the Boxer for me and fortunately continues to stamp those qualities in his puppies
I shared time and space with this great dog who touched the empty spaces and places in my life. I do not know if I was simply brave enough or vulnerable enough to let him slip into those untapped places, but he did. Places where no humans, even if asked to, could enter, sustain, nurture or most importantly comfort as he did. For 12 years I traveled in the company of a great dog and my soul mate. I am forever grateful for our journey.
