Shania introduced us the dog show world. We would like to thank
Shania's breeders Terri and Randy Pope of Mi-T Boxers for entrusting
us with such a beautiful sweet girl and for all of the help and
support you have given us. Your friendship and guidance are
invaluable to us. We are forever grateful.

headpiece and sweet soft expression hooked us from the first day
we saw her! A cute story: We went to take a look at her she was 6
months old. We were originally looking for a younger puppy when we
contacted Terri Pope. She didn't have any at the time but said she
did have a 6 month old puppy bitch she was looking a show home for. So we
decided to go take a look. When we got there I think it was instant
love both ways. I was sitting on the floor and two puppies Shania
and her litter sister Haley came barreling over like 6 month old
boxers puppies do and quickly Shania climbed into my lap and looked
at me and I swear if she could talk she would have said "Hi mom what
took you so long to
find me." Anytime her litter sister tried to get some
attention Shania woo wooed at her. She knew, and she was telling her
sister they came to see me not you so get lost. That connection is
still there. She is always by my side and goes where mommy goes. She
reminds me so much of her mother Anna in so many ways. It's
funny how they can be so alike. She's an easy going gal, I can take
her anywhere and she never seems to get into any trouble. In fact,
she is the tattle tail of the bunch. I know when the boys are
up to no good because she comes and lets me know. She loves all she
meets and has never met a stranger human or dog. She's such a
big talker and loves to woo when she's excited or telling you a
thing or two. She is a very athletic girl an incredible Frisbee
catcher. James calls her Buns of Steel. Along with Rocky
she is a quite the hunter, always checking out the property from corner to
corner treeing the squirrels that dare come on her side of the
fence. Keep an eye out for this beautiful girl and always say hi she will
reward you with a big ol' hug Boxer style!

Shania ( 6/3/1999 - 1/31/2013)
Just when I think I have no more tears to cry I
think of you and the tears flood my eyes.
said goodbye to our shania. For 13 .5 years she was my shadow
, my friend, my companion.
She was our first boxer and
introduction to the show world . Because of her it opened the
doors to so many things. We tried and experienced so many new
things together. It is because of her I have the won...derful
friends that I love so dearly. It is because of her I picked
up a camera and shot my first "pretty" dog pic. It is because
of her that i have this crazy boxer obsession. It is because
of her I now have my Dutch. And it is because of her today I
cry like I've never cried before .
While at the vets
she was distant, she had a far off gaze due to pain meds. As
the dr walked out of the room to get prepare for X-rays shania
stood tall and came to me. For a brief moment I could see her
again in her eyes and she put her head in my hands on my lap
and looked at me. I swear to god I heard her say its ok , I'm
ready. I petted her then she sat and her eyes were back to
that distant gaze. X-rays confirmed what she had already told
me. Her spleen was enlarged and it was time to say goodbye.
She may have not been a champion on paper but she did
what good boxers do. They burry themselves so deep in your
heart that it hurts when they are gone.
Thank You Terri
and Randy Pope for our lovely Shania. She has been an absolute
joy for us.
Just as your reg name says..Mi-T's You're Still
The One... My sweet Shania you are and will always be .. "The
One." We will miss you. ♥See
