BISS CH Feliz Perla de las Antillas, "Pearlie" came to us from Beth and Bob Johnson of Feliz Havana Silk Dogs. She is Posy's half sister (both girls being sired by Ch Salemi Charly, a major contributor to the Havana Silk Dog.) Christopher Columbus called Cuba the "Pearl of the Antilles" which is where Pearlie got her name. Her coat is spun silk, a pearlescent ivory fall. Pearlie took BISS at the Blue Ridge Specialty in 2004. Pearlie went to her first HSDAA show in Toledo in May 2008 and had a great time being back in the ring. She left with two majors and a BOS! She finished her Championship in 4 shows with all major wins. Pearlie is a Certified Havana Silk Dog™ Pearlie retired from breeding in 2009 but loves to show occasionally as a Senior Silk at selected HSDAA shows.

CH Elfin Black Pearl "Good Karma"was born on March 31, 2009, the morning after my companion of 19 years, Richi, passed away. Sired by Multi CH Elfin Just in Time "Max", out of BISS Multi CH Feliz Perla de las Antillas "Pearlie", Karma is a full sibling to Lark. Karma is the spitting image of her dad with a black version of her mom's silken coat. She has a perfect crozier tail, desirable in the Silk Dog and is a joyful, funny companion. Karma is completed her Jr Championship in 2010 and her adult Championship in 2011.

Jr CH Elfin Starlight Starbright
CH Elfin On The Road From Cathay, "Pekoe" was born on January 28, 2012, daughter of CH Elfin No Limit Lollypalooza, "Lolly", and CH Bydand In the Mood At Concordia, "Curtis". Pekoe is a 4th generation Silk Dog with a great personality, sound little body and is carrying the elusive Satin gene. The Satin coat was believed to be the original 'wild' type coat pattern of the Silk Dog, with the 'drop' coat being a mutation. Because we believe that the Satin gene is associated with other developmental areas, such as tooth bud development, it is a gene that we feel should be kept in the gene pool. Because it takes two Satin genes to be expressed in the phenotype, we can maintain this gene without actually producing Satin coated dogs (unless we choose to do so.) Like her blue dam and grandmom, Pekoe is changing colors and will end up a lovely grey. We are having a blast with this lively, mischievous little fun lover. She made her show Debut at the National in Nov 2012 and continued on at Tarheel to quickly finish her Jr Championship in 2013. A year later, also at Tarheel, 2014, Pekoe finished her certified Championship. At the end of 2013 she completed all her requirements and is now a certified Havana Silk Dog.

Jr CH Elfin First Star I See Tonight, aka "Dipper"
represents our 6th generation at Elfin. Daughter of CH Elfin Starlight Starbright, sired by Starborn Jefe Juan Pequeno, Dipper is a beautiful little firecracker of a dog. She makes up for her small stature with large attitude! She and Pekoe are best buds, playing all day long and sharing food and treats. Pekoe won't let Pearlie or Karma near her food but will let Dipper join her in a meal. Dipper finished her Jr CH in 2013.

Elfin Ada Way To Go Girl! "Ada" is our youngest girl, being run on from the Aug 2015 pairing of Pekoe and Enzo. I hadn't planned to keep a puppy from this litter but, when push came to shove, I could not let this happy, free spirit leave so, here she stays while we watch her grow and share in the joy that is being with Ada.
