von den Funken was born on 14 July 2010 in Schildow, Germany
to the Von Den Funken Boxer kennel - www.boxer-von-den-funken.de
It was a long wait to get Bambule as he was over 3 months
when we started the importation process and thus he needed
to stay in Germany for at least a month after getting his
Rabies injection, which prolonged his arrival in South Africa.
He finally arrived in South Africa on 24 November 2010 to
much excitement and anticipation. He took to the family immediately
and settled in with the rest of the clan with ease. Nowadays,
whenever you are looking for him you can be sure to find him
running around and playing either outside or inside with Isis,
Omega and Aileen. The only time he is quiet is when he is
taking a power nap to recharge his batteries or at night when
he is sleeping. He has a wonderful temperament, is extremely
mischievous and curious, and has brought us immense joy, laughter
and love in the short time that he has been with us. He truly
is part of the family.
We look forward to Bambule’s entry into the Show ring
early this year and know that he will make us proud. He has
already started with man work and obedience training and appears
to be a natural. All we can say is “Watch this space!”
We would like to sincerely thank Jens and Thea Funk for entrusting
Bambule to us. We cannot thank them enough for being willing
to go out of their way to ensure that everything was done
exactly as per import requirements.
His achievments to date include:
- Bambule received his major (4 point win) on 19 May 2012
- He completed his WTS Beginners and Preliminary on 2nd
A tribute to his mother, Oralee vom Schützenrain, who
passed away on 29 June 2012 due to a malignant tumour. We
will be forever grateful to her and the Funk family. Our thoughts
are with Jens and Thea.
