Comp CH Elfin Dancing The Dream, "Dancer"seemed to be a 'meant to be' dog. I wasn't planning to keep another dog when her litter was born. After three potential homes just didn't pan out, I knew she was meant to stay with me. In fact, I had offered her to a show home and the day before this person came to meet her, she jumped out of a visitor's arms and landed on her head. She seemed ok but, I said I just didn't feel right selling her just in case there was damage that just hadn't manifested itself yet. I haven't ever regretted my decision.
Update: In Feb 2013, Dancer, along with Lark, went to visit the owners of Lark's puppy Skye while I went to FL to visit my Mother. As it turned out, both Dancer and Lark made it very clear that they had fallen into 'spoil dogs rotten, love them to pieces' paradise there in Charlotte. It has always been my policy to do what is the dogs' best interests so, I allowed them to stay. On my way back from FL I spent the evening in Charlotte with them and, while they greeted me and the other dogs enthusiastically, they were very shortly esconced in Judy's lap. Jan brought Lark to the Tarheel show and, again, Lark was clear that she was not about to give up her new owner. While I miss these two dear, lovable dogs, I know they are happy and also making Jan and Judy VERY happy!

Dancer at the Shows...
I took Dancer with me to the National in Oct 2009 where she danced her way through the puppy match, enchanting spectators, and bringing home a Best Puppy Rosette. She made her show debut in March 2010 at the Tarheel Specialty where she earned enough points to finish her Jr Championship in one weekend by taking 5 point majors and BOS both days! Both judges commented on her movement...great reach and drive and the happiest attitude!Under HSDAA rules, a dog must be shown under at least 3 judges to complete a championship so Dancer went to Toledo in May and finished with yet another major at the Corporal Klinger Classic. When Dancer was completing her health testing, for certification, her hips failed to measure up so she was spayed and transferred to the Companion classes where she completed her Companion Championship in short order.

Dancer's Health Testing
Dancer has 2 CHIC parents and 4 CHIC grandparents. At age 2 Dancer completed the required testing to earn her CHIC number. Her hip conformation did not meet our standards for breeding dogs so Dancer did not enter our breeding program. She is currently enjoying life in Charlotte, NC. She enjoyed showing in the companion classes and earned her Companion Championship.
