AKC/SKC/IABCA Int'l Ch Rosend's Booker T, SOM CGC TT

"Love in the Warm California Sunshine"

This is the 1st breeding for Brandi. She is the result of a wonderful line breeding between two very strong Boxers. Her mother Penny, finished her Championship with 3 Majors and produced 2 American Champions. Her sire was just a young Champion and his first breeding produced Brandi. Marcus finished his Championship easily and has already sired his first Champion. Brandi is show pointed, owner-breeder handled, as well as being a Best of Breed winner. She has a temperament that is playful and very friendly. Brandi is just a stunning girl that never takes life seriously.

Booker T is one of those dogs that needs little introduction. Finishing his Championship at 18 months, pointed owner handled, and that was only the beginning. At 19 months Booker T went Best of Breed as a newly moved up Special. This was a huge 70 entry show, just a day after a large Boxer Specialty show. He was owner handled by Christina. Later that evening, and amid an incredible huge Working Group, Booker T won a 4th place! He soon followed that up with another Best of Breed win and another Group 4. Together he and Christina won 10 Best of Breed and 3 Group placements in AKC. They also won several Working Groups and Best in Show at States Kennel Club. Booker T went on to sire 10 American Champions, 2 Canadian Champions, 1 Best in Show winning Indian Champion and 1 Best in Show winning Brazilian Champion. Booker T had a temperament that was both solid and loving. He made an impression on every human he met and on every litter he sired.

This breeding was years in the planning. Booker T left the Boxer world at 11-1/2 years old. He lived a long healthy life and left pieces of himself around the world. I have waited for the right girl to come along and extend his legacy. Booker T was a once in a lifetime Boxer. This litter will be my once in a lifetime chance to go back in time and recreated a bit of past. These two Boxer dogs compliment each other incredibly well in terms of conformation, temperament, expression and health. Had Booker T still been around, he would have fallen madly in love with Brandi. I look forward to seeing what he and Brandi can produce together.

Any fertile thoughts you can spare would be appreciated!

Brandi had her 3rd progesterone testing done. The first two showed significant climbing so we may be under way. Consultation with the reproductive specialist Brandi is seeing was very positive. The plan is a surgical insemination (SI) with an either earlier or later transcervical insemination (TCI). Since breedings done with frozen sperm are not as viable, we want to give this every chance of resulting in a pregnancy. On the up side, Brandi is really enjoying all the extra people attention :)

Brandi had a surgical insemination today. Her Specialist believed the fertility window has opened and we needed to proceed post haste. The surgery went exceedingly well with the doctor being very pleased.

Brandi had a transcervical insemination today. This is to back up the surgical implantation from yesterday. As with the SI, this TCI went smoothly and with the specialist being very pleased. A sonogram will be done in another month to confirm the pregnancy.

Brandi healed up from the surgery in record time. Her sutures came out and all was 100% healed. An ultrasound has been scheduled for 8/26/08 to see if we have buns in the oven. Fingers, eyes and toes are all crossed!

The countdown has begun..............
