(Multi Ch Elbereth Matkamies ShCM x Shacal Reilu Peli)
The beautiful Peli caught my eye very early on, and I guessed she was destined for great things. She was actually quite dark when born, and I thought she was actually a tri colour – and hence her nickname was “Tanny”. Her head was very strong and she was a very cobby puppy – so she was destined to be a keeper. Then with two oldies in the house needing my full attention and a busy work life – I made a decision to let her go and live with Barry and Angela, to be a princess with half sister Tuuli. But was delighted that Angela & Barry were only too pleased for me to show her.
She has had an amazing start to her show career, Top Puppy in breed in 2014 then her first CC in 2015, followed by two more in succession, to become the only champion to win the needed three CCS at three consecutive shows, LKA/Crufts and the FLC of GB.
2016 saw her finish the year as top bitch and taking the bitch breed record, in 2017 she has started the year with further amazing results pushing the breed record further, only her sire has more CCs than her.
