We are proud of our blue boy, Elwood, (Ch. Aragorn's Elwood Blues), who started his first year as a special with a bang! Shown only 60 times in Breed competition, he earned Best of Breed 41 times and accumulated 20 Placements in the Herding Group, including 6 Groups 1sts, 3-2nds, 4-3rds, and 7-4ths. He finished #5 Cardigan in the country for 1999 and #1 Owner/Breeder Handled Cardigan. All this before 2 years old. We send our appreciation to the judges and ringside supporters!
