Star completed both her Canadian and American Championships very quickly.   Star won Best of Breed (Robert Moore) from the classes at the Brush Prairie show in the summer of 1998, handled by Kimberlie Steele.   That fall Star completed her American Championship by winning Best of Winners, Best Opposite Sex at the East Bay Boxer Club Specialty (Dr. Chreston Farrow) handled by Lynda Yon.   In Canada, Star earned Award of Merits at both the Alberta Boxer Club Specialty (Donald Bauxbaum) and the Boxer Club of Canada Regional Specialty (Beau Galle).   Star was only shown two weekends during 1999 as her litter brother Am. Can. Ch. Berlane's Causin An Uproar "Sabre" was on the campaign trail.   Star did earn 2 group placements during her brief appearance in the ring.

In 2000 Star was shown at the Alberta Boxers Club Specialty and was awarded Best Opposite Sex by Judge David Stachan from Australia. The next day she competed at the Boxer Club of Canada Regional Specialty and was awarded Award of Merit and Dam and Progeny by judge Larry Sinclair.   A week later Star competed at the American Boxer Club Regional Specialty and was awarded Best Opposite Sex.

Star has proven her excellence as a mother and became a Canadian Dam of Merit in March 2001 and was tied as Dam of the Year in Canada in 2000.   Star is the dam of 4 American Champions and 6 Canadian Champions.

In April 2004, Star was shown as a veteran and proved that she could still strut her stuff. At the Dogwood Boxer Club Specialty, Star was awarded, Award of Merit, by judge Donna Cole. The next day at the Boxer Club of Canada National Specialty under judge John Connolly, Star was given the nod for Best Opposite Sex. John Connolly made the final cut so spectacular. The crowd was unbelievable, you could hardly hear yourself. Everyone was behind Star and her veteran brother, Sabre. It made me very proud to watch these two act like puppies. Thank you to everyone for your support and for making this so special. The final day at the Western Canada Boxer Club Specialty, Star was again given the nod for Best Opposite Sex by judge Eileen Pimlott. It was a very special weekend and one I will not forget any time soon.

In August 2004, Star again entered the ring at the Alberta Boxer Club Specialty under breeder judge Cheryl Robbins. Star was awarded Best Opposite Sex to her brother Sabre who was awarded Best in Specialty. These two senior citizens still gave the young kids a run for their money.

In September 2004, Star became an American Dam of Merit when her daughter, Am. Can. Ch. Berlane's Mirror Image, completed her American championship with four majors.

We attended the American Boxer Club National Specialty in Kentucky May 2005. As many know, Star's litter brother Sabre, died December 2004. Very talented artist Jessica Kozel painted Sabre and donated the painting for auction at the American Boxer Charitable Foundation auction. The painting earned $1900.00 and went to the only place where it truly belonged. The home of Karen Deschambault (Oxtoby), who loved and handled Sabre and coowned him with us. We had Star at the ABC and she received her DOM Plaque at the ABC Annual Dinner. While at the ABC, my good friends Sandra Schell and Annette Clark said don't ask any questions but we want to borrow Star. I knew they were up to something but had no idea what. Well, in my wildest imagination, I would not have dreamed what Annette and Sandra had planned. They had a photo done of Star and the painting of her brother Sabre. Words can not express what this photo means to me. There are always things in life that you cherish over others. This photo I will cherish forever. I also cherish the friendships I have made through our involvement with Boxers. If you would like to view the picture, click here. .

In June 2005, Star became a Canadian Legion of Merit when her daughter, Am. Can. Ch. Berlane's Flyin High, CDOM, became a Canadian Dam of Merit.

In May 2006, Star made the trip down to the American Boxer Club National Specialty. Star proved she could still strutt her stuff and showed like she was 2 years old. The crowd was really behind her. She won the 8 - 10 year old veteran class under Judge Larry Sinclair, handled by her friend Kimberlie Steele. We are so proud of our sweet girl.

In June 2007, Star showed in the Alberta Boxer Club Specialty as a 10+ yr old veteran. Star proved she could still strutt her stuff and showed like she was 2 years old. The crowd was really behind her. She won Best Opposite Sex over a large entry of much younger female specials.

In August 2010, Star became a American Legion of Merit when her daughter, Am. Can. Ch. Berlane's Mirror Image, Am. Can. DOM, became an American Dam of Merit.

Over 11 years ago, I held Star in my hands as she entered this world. On January 22, 2008 I held Star in my arms as she peacefully left us. Star was part of my heart and my soul and will remain in my heart and memories forever. I would not have missed the time I was given with Star, for the world. Grief is the price we pay for Love..... I could have missed the pain - but I would have missed the dance.

Rest in peace sweet girl, until we meet again.
