The First Elkhounds
Tina was our first elkhound and our introduction to the
showring in the 1960s.
She was campaigned mainly at Sanction, Limit and Open Shows
where she won many BOBs. We had terrific fun with her and would be at a show
locally, almost every week. My mother had been very ill and Tina became her
incentive to recover.
Elga was our second Elkhound, bred by Miss Mary Chadwick. She
was descended from Kitty Heffer's Friochan line. She was quite dark and
had the most wonderful deep dark eyes. A real character, she could be guaranteed
to grab the tail of any passing dog! No dog ever argued with her as she had
"the eye". She only had to look at them with her piercing stare and
they would turn away. She didn't really enjoy showing But did win 1 CC.
Tina and Elga were born exactly 6 months apart and died exactly
6 months apart- to the day!

My husband's dog originally, I inherited Loki on our
marriage.Loki was definitely a man's dog, much preferring their company to
women. She accepted our new puppy with good grace and tried so hard to play with
her but seemed off colour. She died suddenly and very unexpectedly of an
aneurism at 9 years of age.

Shane also belonged to my husband. He was a real sweetie and
loved his tummy tickles. Sadly he had been mistreated by schoolchildren when
young and never regained any trust in children.
