About Whisper . . .
Whisper was the first one born in her litter. She took our breath away from the moment we saw her, and have to admit that we still have that reaction -- especially when / if she behaves in the show ring. Those that have seen her antics as a junior puppy know exactly what we mean by antics! She's very much a solid blend of her parents, not just in appearance but in personality (or shall I say "character"?) as well. She was supposed to be the quiet one from her litter. Guess we missed the mark on that one . . . just a bit.

Whisper keeps our household busy and very much has a mind of her own. She loves her toys, loves her food, and loves to cuddle -- we're just not sure which of those three that she loves the most! Whisper is so much fun to live with. She's cute and coy and she knows it. Not only does she have the best wiggle-butt in the household but she just might be the top food hound (oops, "boxer") as well. Sometimes it is scary to watch her eat -- boy, can she ever empty that food bowl quickly!!!

Whisper’s show career . . .
Whisper turned 6 months old the first day of her first dog show. That weekend, she won the Working Group at the Sanction Match and also came home with her first 5 points, which included a great win at a boxer booster. We were thrilled that Whisper had earned 9 points from the junior puppy class! It took a few shows that summer to get that final point, as Whisper had decided to do everything but move properly in the ring . . . right Lynn? Whisper is one of five littermates being shown in Canada. She the third champion for her dam in 2009. Her championship made her sire a Sire of Merit in Canada.
