roof of her mouth caused major damage and the eventual
removal of all of her teeth on one side of her mouth.

still bright in the obedience ring. She has one qualifing

She was bred to Dual Ch. CJ's Keepin' The Faith in

Several puppies were placed into show/performance

Ellie Mae went back into competition in the obedience ring in July of 2004. She acquired her Companion Dog Degree very quickly. She received her third leg by going High In Trial at the Basset Hound Club of Portland Specialty with a solid score of 188 ½. Ellie Mae's CD is the ninth obedience title earned on one of our dogs, the seventh on a basset hound. She is also a second generation obedience titleholder as her mother also earned her CD title.
