Elliott - BOB Crufts 2000

Who we sadly said goodbye to in 2004, aged 12½ years.

A special dog from the day we brought him home from Faith and Mick Gilham of the Topjoys kennels.

He won our hearts and those of many who got to know him.  He was our first successful show dog and started his winning career as a puppy winning Reserve Best Puppy in Show at Hampshire Gundog Open show at his very first show. He gave us many memories along the way - our first RCC, our first CC, our first Champion and most of proudly of all Best of Breed at Crufts 2000 which he won from the veteran class. And most tresured of all he sired our first litter and produced Georgia, our first homebred Champion.

At home he was a super dog to live with. With Elliott, I went to Obedience classes and even competed in gundog working tests.  He was my soul mate and would always appear at your side when you felt down. 

My very special dog.
