This beautiful stag "classic"
sired by Am. Ch Fiero's Tally-Ho and Am. Ch Bentbrook's High Potential
( 3rd generation Bentbrook) comes from a long line of outstanding
Boxers. Quote by Barb Carroll:
"It was challenging showing a plain Boxer during those years but, in
spite of this, Chip became recognized as a truly magnificent Boxer by
many prominent breeders, judges and handlers."It
was Barb's intent , as one of the earlier pioneers of showing a
"Classic" in Conformation, to have this fine Boxer judged on the beauty
of his absolutely
conformation and movement and NOT on his plain coat. Since these years ,
changes have finally occurred within the judging community, with the
help of John Connolly, Stephanie Abraham, Joe Heine to name a few.
Following is a quote by Stephanie Abraham about Blue Chip at the time
of his passing in 2001:
"Even though he was lacking just
a few points to become a Champion , Chip will ALWAYS be
remembered as a true Champion."
