I know this is a little off subject since Sonic wasn't a boxer but a hedgehog that my son's teacher has as a class pet. This week they found out that Sonic has cancer and is going to be put to sleep today. My son is really upset about it even though he tries to act brave. I was explaining to him about the rainbow bridge so I think that made him feel a little better! It's a little harder for him because my dad died in 04 from skin cancer and my cousin died in Feb 07 of breast cancer.
