10 Mar 2015

Please remember our Trophy Show this coming Sunday!

It is a relaxed, informal event and perhaps you would like to come and try your hand at showing your Boxer? Who knows, without realizing it you might have a potential champion casually lounging around your home! Even if showing your dog is not your thing, perhaps you would enjoy coming to watch and chat to other Boxer enthusiasts. We would love to have you there.

Below is the schedule for the Aptitude Test planned for the weekend of 9th/10th May 2015, as well as some info on what aptitude tests are all about. There are two slots still available for Boxers – 10:30 on the Saturday and 14:30 on Sunday. If you are keen to enter, please do so asap, otherwise these slots will go to other breeds who wish to enter.

Boxers usually do very well in these tests, and it is also very interesting to watch, so if you are interested, do come and observe one or two of the tests. However, please note that only the dog being tested is allowed on or near the grounds during a test, so please do not bring your Boxers along for the ride!

10 Mar 2015 Our club had its AGM on 22nd February 2015.

The bad news is that two of our committee members decided to hang up their committee gloves: Our very competent Secretary, Fay Roberts, and Mike Bind. We are really sad to see them go, but we are very, very grateful for their contribution to the running of the club during the time they served on the committee.

The good news is that three members were willing to join the ranks of the committee and we welcome Jennifer Neish, Renate Vorster and Marelize Wiese with open arms and a song in our hearts! We hope to have them on the committee for many years to come.

So, the committee elected for 2015 is:
PATRON: Roy Joynt
PRESIDENT: Doreen Powell
CHAIRMAN: Jacqui Verrinder
VICE CHAIRMAN: Ken Hull
TREASURER: Monique Hodgkinson
SECRETARY: Marlien Heystek
BOXER RESCUE: Michelle Martin
SCRAPS: Marlien Heystek
WEBSITE: Monique Hodgkinson
MEMBERS: Dawn Hull, Jennifer Neish, Renate Vorster, Marelize Wiese
AUDITOR: Noelene Billingham

Please direct all enquiries to info@wpbc.co.za or secretary@wpbc.co.za .

For those of you who have paid your 2015 subscriptions, thanks very much. For those who have not yet renewed, please remember to do so soon, please! It was agreed at the AGM that the annual subscriptions will be increased as follows: SINGLE: R80.00 FAMILY: R100.00 LITTER: R50.00. These new fees will apply from January 2016.

10 Feb 2015 The next issue of our SCRAPS magazine will feature a tribute to Johan Kieser. If anyone would like to write something, send photos, tell a story or just send a short message, please do so before the end of February so that our editor can include it in the next issue. Please send an email to the editor, Marlien Heystek.

Sad passing of Johan Kieser

It is with deep regret that we advise that Johan Kieser was tragically murdered last week.
Johan Kieser a wonderful dogman will be remembered in so many facets of dogdom in South Africa and Internationally.

Johan’s affix “Tortuga” has run through many of our top winning Boxers for many years. His knowledge and dedication to the Boxer Breed has always been foremost in his life.

Johan served on many Committees, Exco, Federal Council, Western Cape Provincial Council, but his main love was for the Boxer Breed.

Johan served on the Kennel Association and during his time with Kennel Association he obtained sponsorship from Epol, was on the Task Team for Top Dog in 1990 and he pulled Breede Rivier Kennel Club back, in the Worcester days.

He worked tirelessly on the Committee of the W P Boxer Club for many years.

Johan will always be remembered as a perfect gentleman, respected in all areas of Dogdom, a genuine friend – missed by a great many people.

The Kennel Union extends its deepest sympathy to his daughter Jeanne and his many friends.

Dominic

CH STANWIX CHASE THE WIND
30 AUG 02 – 1 JUN 10


Dominic was born early morning as a dreadful storm raged through Cape Town. We had been without electricity for most of the night and the whelping room was full of candles (very romantic!) the litter subsequently being named after the dreadful weather. He was 2nd born, weighing in at a hefty 525g – he was a very big baby and grew into a very big adult. But what a gentle giant, I have never had a Boxer with such a sweet, sweet nature, loving and being loved by everybody. (OK, except Rogan!) He was an absolute clown leaping round in circles whenever he was happy, talking at the top of his voice - he could hold a long conversation with anyone willing to listen!

In his day, Dom did well in the show ring, earning his Championship status as soon as he won his maturity CC at 18 months. His last triumph was taking the CC at the WPBC show in 2009 as a veteran, but, unlike his sister Rafaela who adored showing, he could take or leave the show ring. He loved to attend the shows, but was just as happy observing at the ringside, giving all the youngsters advice!

Dom had always been very healthy, but a few weeks ago he started having fainting episodes and after lots of tests we found had a tumor in his heart and an immune mediated anemia. He was treated in hospital and came home feeling much, much better when unexpectedly & totally unrelated he developed torsion and, as he would have been unable to tolerate the anaesthetic required for the surgery, I had to make the very difficult decision to say goodbye to my wonderful boy.

There is a huge gap in my life, as Dom was such a fantastic companion, walking partner and adored friend. He was a true, true gentleman.

I know it’s a wonderful place over the rainbows bridge, but I am going to miss you Dom, Nic, Pic my Bestest Boy in the Whole Wide World, Ever!

We received this sad email from one of our members:

Cracker (Ch. Proam Lethal Weapon) put to sleep

Yesterday at 5pm we had our beloved Cracker put to sleep. He had spondylosis and suddenly started falling and slipping all over the place on Monday February 1st. It was sad to see him like this. Cracker was the best boxer thing that ever happened to us. In terms of temperament and personality one couldn't ask for more in a boxer. As Caroline would say": "Best boxer you've ever had." He filled our lives with so much joy. We miss him and it will take a very long time to heal from this. He was eleven years and four months old. He was a part of everything we did,every decision we took whether it was to go to Pick and Pay or visit friends. His age and the appealing look when we went out, was the reason that for the past seven years we did not go on holiday because he always pined when in kennels. But yesterday we could see that he had come to the end - the end of an era.

Regards.
Helen and Ivan Smith
