Can Ch. Interlude’s Whispered Rumor


Our beloved Tessa was born on January 8, 2000.  She passed away in our arms on April 15, 2012.  She had mammory cancer.

Tessa is the love of our lives.  She’s the shadow that is always with you even when there isn’t any sun.  She is the “Queen” of the house.  Tessa is always with us.  When bedtime comes, she right there waiting for her spot on the bed.   Sometimes she sleeps in her plush bed in our room, but where ever she decides to sleep, it’s always near us. When the cold air of winter blows in she turns into a puppy again.  She races around the yard with all the other dogs playing tag, until I tell her to slow down.  We couldn’t have asked or excepted a Boxer with a spirit of such love to share our lives with.  We’re looking forward to more years of having our Grand Miss Tessa sharing our life with!

Tessa is our foundation bitch and our first Boxer.  We purchased her from Dot and Jerry Bryant of Interlude Boxers.  We decided on Tessa because she was a stunning puppy and  because of the reputation of Dot and Jerry’s Interlude Kennel and of the solid line bred pedigree she had.  Tessa is a double Ch. Sundarby’s Fleetwood Mac granddaughter.  She was born on January 8, 2000. 

Tessa comes from a long lived line.  Her dam, Magic, lived until she was 12 years old.  Her sire was put to sleep at age 11 or 12 yrs. of years old.  He had a brain tumor.

Tessa has been an asset to our home.  She gave us thrills in the ring.  She obtained her Canadian Championship when she was 11 months old.  Tessa has nine points toward her American Championship.

Below is Tessa playing with her grandchildren.   Granny Tessa is loving every minute of it!             Tessa is 9 years 11 months old in the photos below.
