Ch Berlane-Rosend's Tribute to BK, CGC ex Ch Rosend's n PawPrint's New Year, CGC TT

Brandi was born at a time when PawPrint Boxers was in mourning.
Just weeks earlier we had had to say goodbye to our beloved Booker T and Crystal.
We needed some Boxer sunshine in our home and so entered Brandi. Such a lovely happy girl.
Brandi is show pointed from the Bred-By Exhibitor class as well as winning several Best of Breed / Bred-By Exhibitor awards.

Brandi say good-bye just shy of her 10th Birthday.
Being a much older gal, Mother Nature had been slowly calling her to the Bridge.
I made a promise that she was born in my house and would stay with me until her final days.
I am proud to say that while the decision to say good-bye was not easy, her final day was
a happy sunny warm day spent with her human parents and her Boxer buddies.

Only the week earlier, Brandi almost died. She had eaten a bee and immediately went into shock. Brandi slowly fell to the ground and was only breathing in a shallow pattern. It was quick and within minutes. Thankfully I was home and was able to pick her limp body up and rush her outside to my husband. We called the emergency vet ahead and broke all speed laws to get her there in time. My terror was she would not make the 10 minute drive. Eye fixated ahead, she continued her shallow breathing and could make no other movements. I rushed her into the medical office where their team was thankfully ready for us. Putting her on oxygen and checking her vitals, they went to work on her limp and non-responsive body. Brandi's heart continued to beat strong and steady which was a blessing. Slowly color started to come into her face and the pads of her paws. Time crawled slowly but steadily Brandi showed improvement. Less than an hour later she was able to walk out on her strength. A bit unsteady, but very much alive. The next 24 hours were crucial if she would suffer another allergic reaction. I stayed up with her the entire time. Thankfully Brandi made it through the night and started to perk up. I learned a serious lesson from this which I had only heard from other Boxer friends; Boxers and bees do not mix. Please heed this story and learn from it.

7 days later Brandi was still thin from her experience but in great spirits. And she was recognized by John Connolly for Best of Breed at a small local show. Brandi won her life back thanks to humans who loved her and she proved she wanted to be here by taking the Breed that day.
