THE KING HAS LEFT THE RING…….. After an outstanding and enviable show career spanning over 7 years, King Reginald has hung up his collar and lead and retired to the sofa.
After winning his 45th Best Exhibit in Group at the end of January 2009, the difficult decision was made to retire Reginald whilst he was still “on top”. A multi Best Exhibit in Show winner- (including a Boxer specialty in Victoria) and multi Runner up Best in show all breeds winner, winner of the “Ultimate Utility” event, invitee to the Contest of Winners 4 consecutive years (of which he was Runner up at one and semi finalist at another) + many other milestones too numerous to name- there seemed to be very little left to achieve in the show world for this wonderful example of the breed.
Sir Reginald once again has been awarded the honour of competing in Perth’s prestigious Contest of Winners 2007
Grand Champion Taswest Reggie in Red “KING Reggie” The most recent winner at Taswest is AUST GRAND CH TASWEST REGGIE IN RED (Reggie). A rather unruly puppy and young dog, he was often referred to by his many admirers as the wild one or you are such a naughty dog and sometimes even as Reggie. He has been brought along slowly and is now settling down to be an outstanding show dog. Reggie changed his name to King REGINALD when he became a GRAND CHAMPION at The Perth Royal Dog Show in 2005. Sir Reginald is a personality plus Boxer with real attitude. He has won many Best Exhibits in groups and classes in show under judges from all over the world. His first group was at just 8 months.
