This is my beautiful Mother, Ondra von Der Hansjakobstadt.

She won many prizes at numerous exhibitions. Here she is 10 months old. She was a wonderful Mom to many puppies.

Veronica fell in love with her the first time she saw her, at 18 months, and decided she wanted one of her pups.

Here, she’d just won the great title, BOB (Best of Breed) in an exhibition. Andy and Jacky were very proud.

I think she’s gorgeous.

I was part of her last litter. The plan was for her to enjoy life with Andy, Jacky and all their Boxers in their beautiful home

Destiny decided otherwise. When I was 8 weeks old, Andy found a little Bump. He called it a Mammary Tumor.

A few weeks later Ondra had to leave for Fairyland, she was only 6 years old. She gave all her last energy and strength to her babies before saying farewell.

Today is Mother’s Day. A Mother might, at times, drive you crazy, embarrass you, overprotect you, and fuss for just about anything.

Remember, it’s because she loves you so much and only want’s your best. (Incidentally she often knows what’s the best for you. Yes she does!)

Be indulgent and give her a big hug.

Happy Mother’s Day!
