Penny the Show Girl
In HSDAA, Penny's wins have been very consistent as she is a very typey 'Silk Dog' type with elegance and lovely silk coat. Penny was also the cover girl for the 2008 Silk calendar. She is a funny, affectionate, alpha bitch who should be an asset to the Silk gene pool.
On Dec 6, 2009, Penny added motherhood to her accomplishments. Bred to Sonic, Multi CH Bydand Start Me Up, she had beautiful black/white puppies. Please visit Past Puppies, Penny's Poems to watch these babies grow. All these puppies have gone to new homes except for Star who will remain at Elfin.
On Sept 10, 2010, Penny had her 2nd litter. Bred to Sonic's sire, BISS CH Bydand Elfin Magic, she had 5 beautiful puppies. Visit The Nursery to watch Penny's Easy Elves grow.

Brood Bitch with her kids at National
After winning BOS the day before the National, 2011, then an AOM and Brood Bitch at the National, Penny retired. One of the most difficult aspects of being a breeder is making decisions for retired dogs. Do they stay or would they be better served by being placed in what we call a 'forever' home. The answer involves careful examination and evaluation of each dog's personality. Some dogs are happiest when members of a pack of dogs, others do better when elevated to top dog in another home. In Penny's case, instead of having to share one lap with multiple dogs, the better choice is having her choice of 3 laps with no competition. Penny is now happily living in Tennessee with a new family and no competition for laps!
