Sheltie Shin-dig – part 1

Hello, Dee here, taking over the blog for a couple of posts. Over New Year we had a very special event! The Elanmore people (Elanmore is Ludo and Arran’s kennel name, if you are new to the blog) – Katharine, Laura and Jack, came on holiday near us again and so we got to have a couple of Sheltie meets! They brought their dogs; Becky and Charlie who’ve been on the blog before and Arran’s litter sister Beryl and his younger sister Phoebe! We were also joined in this part by his younger brother Foxy (Phoebe and Foxy are litter mates) and Foxy’s owners Anna and Bob, they also live in Cumbria. It was a real sheltie fest and lots of fun! Anna showed us some photos of her previously beloved shelties, one was very like Ludo, and it was wonderful hearing all about them, they really do seem to be a breed that stays in your heart.

Foxy, Phoebe, Arran, Ludo, Beryl, Becky and Charlie!

I asked Katharine what all their kennel club name’s were so they are… “Foxy’s name is Elanmore Encore, Phoebe’s Elanmore Exactly Right, Arran’s Elanmore Beach Boy, Ludo’s Elanmore Blue Flash, Beryl’s Elanmore Beach Babe (of course after you wanted to name Arran Beach Boy it had to be!) and Becky’s is Elanmore Royal Empress.” Poor Charlie got half cut off the photo! I’d look out for Beryl and Phoebe’s name as I think they are going to start showing soon. 🙂
