Texas Was Grand Prize Futurity Winner and Winners Dog, Best of Winners at the 1984 American Boxer Club Specialty.
This was my thrill of a lifetime in dogs.
Texas is the sire of 36 Canadian and 7 American Champions out of a total of only 29 litters. He was a one of a kind, once in a lifetime dog. We continually strive to breed another like him, but until recently none can compare to him.
He was my very special boy, always at my side. No matter where I was or what I was doing Texas was right there, demanding my attention. There will always be a large part of my heart reserved just for him.
One of Texas' favourite things was cross country skiing. He loved to go with his family for a skiing outing. He also loved to fetch sticks from the beaver pond on our property.
Tex's next favourite person to me was my grandson Jesse. Jesse came to live with us when he was just 15 months of age. This made a big change in all of our lives. You know how busy a 15 month old boy can be!
Texas delighted in Jesse's antics. They became best buddies. When Texas died Jesse was lost. He still, to this day, walks past the place where Texas is buried and stops and says "Texie is buried there, eh Grandma, Texie was my friend". Never fails, he always says this.
