Westminster 2017: Mystic's littermate "Elphie" wins BOB/Group 3

So pleased for the Tamarack breeding program in Eagle Idaho, and breeder Kathy Whipple. Handler Clint Livingston, who won the National Specialty with Elphie & Mystic's mother Groovy, earned the Best Of Breed at Westminster yesterday, and then went on to a sporting group 3. Elphie Andras "Elpheba"- is BISS GCHS Tamarack And BluePrint's Defying Gravity SDHF. Mystic's other lovely sister Fuzz earned an AOM. This tiny gem of a breeding program is also a close knit family, and so fun to see a deserving small hobby breeder rewarded. Elphie is owned by Jim and Alisa Andras.

Wow! And I thought Mystic was special! He is, I know. But that is quite an achievement.

Beautiful golden, I was really hoping this would be the year :-( even the crowds were excited for the golden, very supportive for a really awesome dog! What is wrong with these judges anyway?!

I am thrilled with her win. She is related to my Steven. Looks like he is her uncle.

I watched the video of Elpheba at the 2016 GRF Top 20 Gala and she's lovely.

Congrats to all involved!

My brother in law's girlfriend is 1/3 owner of the winner of the lagotto romagnolo group. She was present at Westminster. She decided too late in life for having kids that she wanted a family, so dogs, and showing, has become her passion. It's easy to get into if you have the time and money.

So nice to see a small breeder do well!
