It is with a heavy heart and sobbing tears I write
this tribute to our beautiful boy Connor. Connor was taken from us
much to soon due to a ruptured hemangiosarcoma tumor on his spleen.
This is the most common and feared cancer in our breed and can occur
suddenly and at any age. It is often mistaken for cardiomyapathy
because it can be a very sudden and unexpected death. Connor never
showed signs of being sick in-fact he was bouncing around flirting
with the girls and playing with my husband and I just minutes before
his collapse. Connor was truly one of the "Greats", a once in a
lifetime dog. His time on earth was short but he left us with an
unforgettable impression. Connor's life was shared with our dear
friend and owner Ann Bowers whom he loved, cherished, and protected. He
was the best boxer in the world and will be sorely missed. Rest In
Peace sweet gentle boy.
