great video, thanks for posting it, i missed the show for some reason my dvr decided not to record.all the boxers were gorgeous, would have like to see a little more variety though, it was mostly cropped flashy fawns.
All kinds of different ways - sometimes the call name helps. For instance, "Some Like it Hot" is called "Monroe" - after Marilyn, from the movie. Or, the sire/dam's names play a part - "A Touch of Dash" was sired by "Dash Riprock" (all of that litter had "Dash" in their registered names). A friend of mine had a litter sired by a dog called Chance; one of the pups was "Half O'Chance". Sometimes breeders have themes, too - "The Bronx MVP at Third" was from a baseball-themed litter - littermates were "The Bronx Bomber", "The Bronx Babe", and "The Bronx Shortstopper".
I noticed the Boxer in the Working Class had such a long neck, and was not very muscular. Is this preferred in the show ring? I have no clue. They all looked a bit bored with the whole business. Thanks for sharing this wonderful video.
The Boxer should have a neck of "ample length" (which means longer rather than shorter, anyway), clean, smooth musculature, and should balance substance with elegance. The Boxer in the Working Group last night was a bitch, so should be somewhat more elegant than a male. The muscles should be well-developed but not excessive - this doesn't always come across well on TV with the lights and the shadows, and sometimes is harder to see on brindles like last night's Boxer.
