Real-Life Happy Boxer Dog Tale

Uploaded by douglasrickard on 22.12.2011

I donated some of my Boxer art for silent auctions at the annual WoofStock Festival
in Charlotte, North Carolina hosted by ‘Great Dane Friends’ and ‘Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue’
whose work includes rescuing Boxers and placing them in foster homes.
And here’s a photo of some of the winners, Dr. and Mrs. Brian J. Schmidt from Concord,
NC with their two dogs Oscar and Lacey (on the right) and Big Man Walker (on the left),
whom they were fostering for Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue.
The event, Woofstock 2010, raised over $2,300 which helped lower the outstanding veterinary
bills of Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue.
Now the next part of this story is like one of those schmaltzy, Christmas movies. On the
day I happened to release my oil pastel art composite called “Christmas Boxer waiting
for Santa”. I got an update with more photos from Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue. They said:
“Everyone at BRBR says a Big Thank you... Since that picture was taken Big Man Walker
has found his forever home. I have attached pictures of him loving life.”
