Trudy was born on the 24 July 1989, in a litter of 3 dogs and 1 bitch (see below photo). The litter was very nice but 1 bitch and one of the dogs looked interesting.
The interesting dog pup was the one 'that got away', for which our very good friends Philip Greenway (Trudys handler) and the late Barbara Greenway
have never forgiven us for, well we all make mistakes dont we!
Early on in life it was very evident that trudy had an outgoing temperament, she enjoyed life and as a true boxer loved everybody and very intelligent, she enjoyed
collecting 'shoes', which she didnt chew but collected and kept in her bed. Trudy also enjoyed swimming, she showed no aggression towards other breeds,
although she would never tolerate it from them. Her puppy training was 25 miles away once a week, but little did we/she know that in 3.1/2 yrs
we would clock up some 80,000 miles of travelling to shows.
Philip and Barbara Greenway saw her again at 6 mths and realised they were looking at something special and that her show potential was increasing.
Roadwork was all important and built up to 4 miles per day. Trudy was fully grown by 8 mths and we thought she might go over the top, but she didnt,
consistent road work and maturity firmed her up.
Brian, myself and TRUDY have no doubt that her show career would have not been so successful if Philip Greenway did not handle her, his love and
devotion contributed greatly to her success. Both Philip and Barbara have had a great influence on her development.
To sum up Trudys career , the crowd said it all at CRUFTS with their appreciation of her performance when she took out BOB under Charles Walker.
It was truly emotional and Trudy JUST LOVED IT.!!
