A Tribute To:
Mex.Ch. Alexander, TT, PC 

Breeder: Eduardo Picazo Guerrero

Group 1 and Best Entry
from the State of Veracruz
Judge:  Ikerne Zugasti de Garmendia
"Alexander" is the beginning of Regal X Boxers.  He came to live with me when he was only 4 weeks old.   Alexander was my first dog, purchased as a guardian and companion, and he taught me everything about Boxers.

Alexander had no formal training until he was two years old.  Taking him on daily walks, I was frequently stopped by people who said, "What a beautiful Boxer, you should show him!"  Becoming part of the formation of a new dog club, I soon met the "dog show crowd".  Victor Hernandez Montano first handled Alexander, earning half of his Mexican championship points.   But it wasn't long before I wanted to learn to take my own dog in the ring.  It was then that I met Victor's brother, Carlos Roberto Hernandez Montano.

Carlos was and is, one of the few handlers and trainers I've met, who is willing to teach and share his knowledge.  With Carlos coaching, I finished Alexander's championship and handled him briefly as a Special.  Carlos handled Alexander to his Temperament Title (TT).  Alexander was 5 years old when we started training for obedience.   He earned one "leg" in his first obedience circuit, and then we had to suspend our efforts with the arrival of Francesca's first litter.

When Alexander was 7, we started again.  His first time back in the ring at 8 years of age, Alexander scored a 196 out of a possible 200.  Not only did he win 1st Place in Novice A, but he was also High in Trial (who says you can't teach an old Boxer new tricks?).  The next day he earned his third "leg", completing his Companion Dog title, in Mexico called Perro Compañero (PC).

Alexander is now retired, still siring puppies,
and remains "Top Dog" at Regal X.
