Sandy & Steve with Kittie & Uno - 2012
Steve & I were married in September of 1971. Our son,
Scott, was born in June of 1973 and we bought our first boxer in October of
1973. We have not been without a boxer since that time, all
of them as pets and companions as well as our show dogs.
Our son is married and we have three grandchildren -
Joshua, Megan, and Kylie. We couldn't have picked a better daughter-in-law (Shelly).
Kylie - 2012/2013 - Fifth Grade
Megan - 2012/2013 - Senior
Joshua - 20092010 - Senior
We are active members of the Missouri Valley Boxer Club, the Platte Valley
Kennel Club, the Nebraska Kennel Club and the American Boxer Club. I am
also a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church & School - involved in several groups
and serving on the School Board.
I am currently on several dog related mailing lists which keep me very busy
reading and answering e-mail. I have made some lasting friendships from these
Many people ask how we came up with our kennel name. When Steve and his
brothers were little, my mother-in-law used to tell people that she raised
orchids (Orr Kids). It seemed an appropriate name for our "furkids".
We have a son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren as well as brother, sister and
mother, all who live nearby and whom we love dearly. We have many wonderful friends - both inside and
outside of the dog community. We are truly blessed.
