Ch. Aragorn's Elwood Blues
On Dec. 4,5, and 6 Elwood was Best of Breed under Mrs. Denny Kodner, Mrs. Thomas Powers and Mr. Larry Terricone, who awarded him a Group 3 (photo left) at the North Carolina shows in Winston-Salem.
Our blues brother, Elwood finished his '98 show year with a BANG by earning his championship and 3 GROUP placings at a year old! He recently won Best of Breed at all three shows in North Carolina with major competition, under judges Mrs. Denny Kodner, Mrs. Thomas Powers and Larry Terricone.
Since finishing his Championship Oct. 24, Elwood was shown in Best of Breed 6 times, earned BOB 5 times, shown in group 4 times and earned 3 group placings- a 2nd, a 3rd, and a 4th.
At Boardwalk KC on Nov. 28, Elwood earned his third group placing under Col. Joe Perkheiser, a Group 4 win.
wins a Group 2!
Elwood earned his Championship title from the Bred-by class at 11 months old on Oct 24 at Queensboro KC with a BOW and 4pt major under Dachshund specialist Dorothy O. Hutchinson. The following weekend, at Back Mountain KC on Oct.31, Elwood earned his first Group placing with judge Ralph Ambrosio. As you can see, he's starting to grow up, mature and fill out as he turns a year old.
Elwood is shown here (coatless) earning his first 3 point major in Ohio at Agathon KC on August 20, under Mrs. Denny Kodner at 9 months. At Devon Oct.3, he earned BOW/WD for 2 pts under judge William Shelton.
At 8 months Elwood started his career when he earned his first Best of Breed, WD and Best of Winners for 2 points under judge James Mitchell at Twin Brooks KC on July 12 (shown right), defeating a top nationally-rated male. We are so proud of our boy! We also thank Larry Terricone, Tom Feneis, Joan Kefelli, Joe Heine, and Jon Kimes for recognizing Elwood's strong breed traits.
