My name is Terri Pickett & I live in Dawson Creek, BC with my husband Chad & our two children Breanna & Kaden.
My love for the Boxer breed began back in 2004 when we went over to our friend’s house for dinner one night & she had 2 Boxers. Well I met them & fell in love with the breed that night. I was looking for a good family dog! A dog that wasn’t too big to play with the kids but big enough to provide some form of protection for us as a family. I wanted a dog that is fun, lovable & nice to look at, well to me the Boxer is all of that & much more. I couldn’t imagine a day without my Boxers now.
My search for a Boxer started with looking at registered breeders & I came across a breeder who was close to me so I could go meet the puppies & the mother. Well I was offered a flashy fawn girl, but she had to be shown. Since I knew nothing of showing I asked my friend what she thought & she said showing was fun & I should try it. So I bought the flashy fawn girl & named her Paige. We started training right away & attended some local conformation classes & in no time I was hooked on showing!! Well Paige’s career didn’t last long because by the time she was 9 months old she had a very wry bite….so sad to say I was hooked on showing with nothing to show. So I started my search all over again for another show girl. I finally found what I was looking for from Lilas Fischer & Sandy Bilton of MYOHMY Boxers & MGM Boxers in Calgary. I bought my beautiful girl Porsche. Together Porsche & I learned how to show, but she finished her championship quickly so it was short & sweet. While showing Porsche I met a wonderful woman at the Vernon shows who took time to get to know me & my family & was full of wonderful advice her name is Karen Deschambault of Rikar Boxers. Well Karen was breeding her beautiful girl Sabrina & so she offered to co-own her pick bitch with me, I was beyond excited at this wonderful opportunity. So along came my Diva. Diva & I hit the rings & haven’t looked back taking a 5 point win the first weekend out at 6 months & going on & up from there finishing quickly at 8 months old.
I love showing & breeding but most of all I love spending time with my Boxers. They are the best family dog I could ever have asked for as they are great with my kids & wonderful to be around. I am so happy that I decided to add them to our active family. Our Boxers are always with us no matter what we are doing from going for walks, camping & even curled up on the couch watching TV with us. Diva is also a great running partner for me, she can run endlessly lol!
