We have a gorgeous flashy brindle male puppy ready to move into his Forever Home. Previously booked, this little bundle of happiness has become available again. Please contact me if you are interested in him. He is 8 weeks old, micro-chipped, de-wormed, innoculated, raised on our wonderful raw diet and registered with KUSA.

3 Feb 2013 We had a great start to the 2013 show year! Tanyati I'm Familiar Too (Mika) won Best of Breed and Group 3rd under Mr Johnny Marques (South Africa) at the Liesbeek Kennel Club Open Show. What a little star this wonderful girl is!

Mika (Tanyati I'm Familiar Too) does it again! This little girl continues to get noticed in the ring!

Doing his bit too, Jamie (Tanyati Headline News) won Winners Dog and Reserve Best of Breed!

20 Oct 2012 I had a fantastic judging assignment in the UK where I had the honour of judging over 110 male Boxers for the London & Home Counties Boxer Club in Surrey. What a fantastic experience to go over so many top quality Boxers! I will post photos of my winners in due course!

Yes, we are still alive! We are well into winter here in the Cape and trying to get used to the wet!

I have some really super photos of the dogs to publish from when Aine (Zanto and Katie's breeder) was here from Europe and will slowly put them up when I get a gap.

We've had some super show results over the past couple of months and were absolutely delighted when Abigail (Tanyati All Fired Up for Stanwix) passed her Aptitude Test with a brilliant performance earlier in May. Photos of these achievements will also be posted soon.

They say patience is a virtue.... How much do you have? :)

Apologies for the silence the past few weeks. Things have been very tough at Tanyati lately. Despite all my best efforts, giving her every known medication for Auto Immune Haemolytic Anaemia, Raven passed away on 22nd March. It was a devastating blow. The 7 weeks I fought for her life seemed to have been for nothing. But I know that there was nothing more I could do, and I take comfort in knowing that Raven knew what I had done for her and her puppies and that there was nothing more on earth I could have done. Rest in peace, my darling Raven. You were life personified and you will be missed so much.

Little Liam is 4 weeks old now (in reality only 3 weeks old) and continues to grow and get stronger. He is drinking 80mls per meal now and has started to play with me after meal times. He has found his voice, which he uses with great gusto if he feels he needs to be fed or played with. I am hopeful he will get through this ordeal, and I can't wait to let him meet Raven.

Raven continues to get stronger and is putting on weight at last. We have a follow-up consultation with the specialist on Thursday where more blood will be drawn and tested to see what is happening with her auto immune haemolytic anaemia. I pray for good news.

I was devastated to lose little Leo today. He grew weaker and weaker and eventually developed signs of a neurological problem and to release him from further suffering I made the very difficult decision to let him go. Many tears were shed. To get to 18 days and then to lose him was a real bitter blow.

We have had a very traumatic 2 1/2 weeks. On 31st January Raven started to abort her litter, 9 days early. She was rushed to emergency and went into theatre. They removed the remaining puppies via a c-section, and spayed Raven as her uterus had twisted and part of it had died off. There were 10 puppies in total, 3 were born dead, 7 were alive after the caesarian, but due to being so premature, only 3 survived the night.

I brought home 3 almost hairless brindle boys early the next morning, while Raven remained in ICU in a critical condition. A week later the largest puppy died and post mortem results indicated an ecoli infection. The remaining 2 pups are hanging in there, but I am battling some issues with them and they are far from out the woods yet.

After a 2 1/2 week stay in ICU Raven came home yesterday and has been diagnosed with Autoimmune Haemolytic Anaemia, which means that her own immune system is killing off her red blood cells. She is on extemely high doses of cortisone in an effort to prevent her body from viewing her own blood as alien.

Please keep Raven and her 2 tiny sons in your prayers as there is a very long road ahead of us. Raven has not met her sons, and will not meet them until they are a lot older. She is on too much medication to allow the pups to suckle, even if she was strong enough. I am therefore raising them as orphans and am feeding every 3 - 4 hours around the clock. There is no guarantee that the pups will survive as they never suckled from Raven and were born too early to have any immunity passed to them by her.

Each day is a gift, and one that I do not take lightly, but knowing that all my efforts, sleepless nights and worry is not enough to guarantee they survive is very hard.

At Tanyati Boxers we remain in the forefront when it comes to health testing. We only breed from comprehensively health tested animals. Our latest endeavour with regards health testing is to have our breeding dogs genetically tested for ARVC (Arythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy), or Boxer Cardiomyopathy. This test is carried out in the USA and we are delighted to announce that Raven (Tanyati Unfair Advantage) has been DNA tested for ARVC and is found to be NEGATIVE! We are delighted with this result!

Have just had to make one of the most difficult decisions of my life, to help Flipper over the Rainbow Bridge. He was my loyal companion for many years and I am heart broken to have had to say goodbye. Thanks to Pat Withers and Joanne Povall for letting Flipper be a part of my life. He was loved very much. Rest in Peace Flipper (Ch Witherford Censored SOM). 18/11/1999 - 24/10/2011.
