First, let me say that when I think
of boxers, the dogs on your website are exactly what I see in my mind’s eye.All
of your dogs are beautiful animals.
You mention that you may have a
litter this summer between Duke and Mara. We would be very interested in a puppy
from this litter. Do you have Duke/Mara puppies currently available or on the
Also, it was love at first sight
when we saw the photo of Sophia. She’s gorgeous. We would also be interested in
a puppy from a Duke/Sophia litter in the spring.
My wife and I have been married for
21 years, and we have always had one or more boxers. My wife bought our first
boxer, a beautiful flashy brindle for my birthday, the first year we were
married. (I had told her I grew up with boxers, so she thought that would be a
great birthday present. And it was) Maximilian grew into an 85 lb beauty that we
loved dearly. Since then we have had a six other boxers, fawns and brindles,
males and females and we loved them all.
We currently have one boxer, also
named Duke. He’s a flashy brindle, five years old. He did not get as big as I
had hoped, about 65 lbs, but he sure has become one of our favorites because of
his personality and disposition. He’s one cool dog!
But as Duke gets older, and our own
three “puppies” (Michel, Nick and Lucy) are almost ready to leave the nest, we
are looking to expand our family.
We live in
We look forward to hearing from

Hi Denise & Guy! Once again it
was so nice to spend some time with you! How are the girls hanging in
I was studying your puppy pages… on page 3….#5 Bella Cinque seems to have a lot of wrinkles. I like that wrinkled look. Reminds me of the bull dog in them. It’s not a necessity, but I do like it, Maybe you could add that to our notes.
I am so excited I can hardly stand
it! I can’t imagine what it’s like for you guys!! I know it’s a lot of work,
but what a miracle to be a part of! I can’t wait!
Off to get my hair

Hi Denise, I am so so sorry about Mara. I can’t even imagine what you are feeling. I loved her too and couldn’t wait for one of her puppies. My prayers are with you & Guy.
I’m certain we will “find” out baby out of 9! We don’t have to have flashy. A little white stripe on the face and chest or feet will be fine. We like the broad face like Duke has and I of course love wrinkles! So I’m sure God has one intended for us! How many girls are there? I’m anxious to see pictures and pick her out! This is all so exciting! Mike is so excited that they are reverse brindles… he’s wanted one forever! And now that I’ve seen one in person, I think they are beautiful too.
Try to have a good night and I’ll keep praying!

HI! Here is a picture of
Can’t wait to see pictures. When I was looking at Sissy’s litter…..is the one reverse brindle with the little white spot on the back of the neck a girl?
We’re not dead set on Reverse
brindles…. We also want to have a brindle.. so I don’t know if there are any
females that color or not. I forgot to mention that last
Talk to you later! Lynn

Hi Guy and
Lynn and I have talked
and have decided that it would be best for us to wait for Sophie to have
puppies. We basically agree with you about the AKC vs. CKC registry not meaning
a whole lot relative of the quality of the animal, and if we weren’t going to
breed, then this puppy would be way more than adequate for us. But, I would be
more comfortable staying with the AKC registry.
Are there other
families lined up for a Duke/Sophie pup? I think they will have an outstanding
litter, and will be worth the wait.
Thanks. We will be
keeping in touch …
Mike & Lynn
On September 6, this puppy weighed 5.5 pounds. The following photos are from bath time.

Thanks so much for the
pictures!!! She’s soooo cute! We have looked at all your updated pictures of
all 17 puppies….they all look so cute!
Wanted to know if Saturday the 22nd would be ok to pick up Bonnie? The schedule is already made out for me for this work week, so I put down for the 22nd and should get it off.
I know she will be 7
weeks old. Let us know if that’s ok with you guys! Can’t wait to squeeze her…
and all the other little ones!!

Hi Denise and
Well, we are so excited to get our
puppy, we can hardly wait…but wait we must, for a couple more days.
Have run into a small snag in our
plan to pick up Bonnie…hopefully you can work with
So, what we’d like to do is leave
here Saturday morning early enough to get to your place by 10:00 am. If we are
back on the road by 11:00, we should be able to get back in time for
Let me know if that works for you
guys. If not, we’ll reconnoiter and figure out something else.
We really look forward to seeing you

to let you know we made it home with our baby girl. She is resting peacefully at
my feet under the computer desk as I type this. She just loves to be around us.
Thanks so much for the great job you guys have done preparing her to join our
slept most of the way home. We stopped twice, once at a rest stop to give her a
little water and exercise, and later to get something to eat. Both times she got
sick when we stopped traveling. As long as we were moving she was fine. Go
really is going to be an outstanding dog. She is so beautifully marked and has
such a sweet disposition.
for the announcement and card you tucked away in the bag of Bonnie goodies. What
a nice touch!! Getting a puppy from Laymani has been such a pleasant and
positive experience. You guys really set a good example of how do it! As we get
our program going, we are definitely going to model after yours.
keep you posted on Bonnie’s development, and send some pics once we get a decent
digital camera. Thanks again for everything.

Good Morning! So sorry
it’s been so long since we’ve been in touch… so much happening! Bonnie is doing
great! She weighs 42#’s. She is a huge lap dog. Such a sweet personality… but
also very mischievious! She’s also the first boxer we’ve had that “talks”….when
you’re petting her and talking… she just starts talking back. She reminds me of
a teenage girl! We just love her! And so does
A sad thing happened to
Bonnie her first week here. She was sniffing around the dog dishes… it was not
feeding time so we were really surprised when Duke snapped at her. We’ve had
Duke for 5 years and it was so out of character for him to do that. Well, he
got her right below her right eye. She ended up loosing that eye. We were so
upset but she has adjusted and is still as gorgeous as ever! Well, a couple
months later we found out that Duke had been really sick… his kidneys were
failing. We had to put him down, which was one of the hardest things we’ve had
to do. So that explained why he snapped at her, he just wasn’t himself.
Do you have
reservations for the 4 puppies you have from Zena? Has Dutchess been bred to
Thanks for all the
updates…. We still look at your website every few days just to keep up with you
Love, Lynn & Mike

Hi Denise! How’s “puppy time”
going? I see that 2 are sold. That’s good! I know you don’t have much “spare”
time in the day, but if you do…. I was wondering just what ARE your days like
with a litter of puppies. Do you get ANY time to do anything else? Or are you
always paying attention to them? Are they running free thru the house or do
you crate time and play yard time? I’m just wondering because I keep reading
about breeding and I just wonder do you still have any kind of a life for 6-8
weeks??!! So,,,, if you wouldn’t mind.. I’m very interested in “A DAY IN THE
LIFE OF DENISE & GUY!
Bonnie is getting bigger and badder! She is SO spunky and sassy! I wonder if the other puppies are like her at all?
