FLC of GB Championship show – “3 out of 4 ain’t bad!”

New Champion

Well Meatloaf sang “2 out of 3 ain’t bad”  but for “Team Elbereth” it was a phenomenal day at the FLC of GB Championship show where there was an entry of 105 dogs, for Espen Engh from Norway, and Elbereth dogs won 3 out of 4 top honours.

But the highlight was Elbereth Pelinainen JW winning her third and crowning CC and Best in Show.  Gaining her title in style with three consecutive CCs all with BOB – no other Champion has been crowned so quickly – not even her sire!

Elbereth Pelinainen (BCC, BIS) And here she was – such a grand bitch with just everything to look for in the breed, they do not come much better than this! Light wolf-coloured. Instantly attractive with ideal type, excellent proportions, balance and outline, combining substance with femininity. Highly typical head and expression, excellent stop and ideal length of her full muzzle compared to her skull. Balanced angulation both ends. Excellent topline, well set and carried tail. In more than acceptable coat. A sound, balanced and effective mover from all angles, at all times keeping her lovely balance and shape. Even if not the most enthusiastic, she did more than enough to win the CC & BOB.
