Shellie McGregor, representing HUA says ""Ladi Lucks Red Hot Magic", or better known as Pheobi, was born on the 4th of July 9 years ago, this past 4th. She was a 7 year old boxer at the time of the picture. She was born in my home, and was supplemented with bottle feeding as a puppy, because she was the runt of the litter. She was very spoiled and could be a real brat at times, and always wanted things her way, I also have her sister and brother, but she thought she was the only one that mattered. She was a retired show dog, and never finished her championship, as she enjoyed the comforts of home and her Kuranda bed, over the show ring. We sadly lost Pheobi in February of 2014, suddenly to Hemangiosarcoma. She was taken way too soon from us. When I read about your contest, I thought this would be such a neat way, to help keep the memory of my Pheobi Weebie, alive, and help some well deserving dogs and organization. Thank you for the honor of choosing Pheobi's picture. The picture shows Pheobi's favorite way to sleep in her Kuranda bed, when she wasn't sharing with her sister."
