After having a pet boxer many years ago, I began to read books about the breed thinking that eventually I would get one of these lovely animals to show. I questioned Brenda Stuckey of Breho Boxers until I thought I knew enough to start my quest for the perfect bitch. Brenda only had brindle puppies at that time, and I was determined to get a fawn. I went to numerous shows, read some more books, and looked at web pages. In August of 1996 I went to a show in Monroe, La, where I met Bill and Sherry Mielke. When I saw their bitch Southgate's Anne' Oakley enter the ring, I knew I wanted a bitch just like her. In December of 1996 Annie had a litter, but in it was only one fawn bitch. That bitch became mine and was the beginning of Darvick Boxers and my dream. I named her Southgate's Dream a Lil Dream, "Dreamer". I'd like to say Dreamer became my first Champion but she didn't. She was my second Champion. I acquired a second bitch a year later out of the Mielke's second litter from Annie. Southgate's Ilusiv Dream of Darvick. "Lulu" was my first Champion with Dreamer finishing her Championship three days later.

Dreamer was bred to CH. HiMaster's Regal Fire Lord, CD, RN and produced BISS CH. Darvick's Dreams Never Cease "Cece", our fourth Champion and first homebred Champion. She was a Top Twenty contender in 2001 and 2002. I've always felt I was lucky when I started showing. I had Brenda there to ask questions, Terri Galle handling for me, and the Mielke's who let me purchase Dreamer. I can never thank them enough or repay their trust in me.

CH. Denbar's Millenial Dream Warrior "Turbo" was our third Champion. Turbo came to us from Annette Clark in Salt Lake city Utah. Thanks Annette for trusting us with this wonderful, funny Boxer.

CH. Rosend's Sweet Sensation "Candi" came to us from Lynda Yon of Rosend Boxers. Candi is our fifth Champion and the token brindle bitch.

In 2003 Korinne Vanderpool and I bred our "Cece" to CH. Hi-Tech Johnny J of Boxerton SOM, LOM, and had a litter of 3 boys and 1 girl. The following is an update on this breeding.

Finishing in quick fashion, CH. Darvick HiTech Regal Monoply, "Parker", and CH. Darvick HiTech Regal Explorer, "Polo", were my sixth and seventh Champions, respectively. Parker is owned by Susan and Tracey Wilkinson and co-owned by Korinne and me. Polo is co-owned by Korinne and me, but lives with me. CH. Regal HiTech Picasso Of Darvick, SOM, CDX, RN "Pablo", is a third male from this outstanding litter. He is co-owned by Korinne and me and makes his home with Korinne. The lone female, Brandu's Pazazz Of HiTech, "Paddy", is owned by Bob and Sally Mosier and co-owned by Korinne and me. The latter is pointed but has not been seriously shown to this point.

In 2002, CH. Encore's Crimson Tide, "Hunter", came to us from Cheryl Cates of Encore Boxers. Hunter, is a classic fawn with the most wonderful "boxer" temperament. Hunter is our ninth Champion.

In 2004 we did a repeat breeding of "Cece" and CH. Hi-Tech Johnny J of Boxerton SOM, LOM, and had a litter of three boys. One white boy, a plain boy and the third boy, CH. Darvick Hi Tech Regal Tribute "Trevor", made Cece a DOM.

We do not breed a lot, but only strive to breed healthy, conformation correct boxers with wonderful temperaments.
