This is Posy, aka Multi Ch Elfin Pocketful of Posy CGC TDI. Posy is Poppy's daughter, Keebler's littermate, and our current 'alpha' girl. She's a very laidback leader who let's our pack enjoy themselves until things get out of hand...and when Posy speaks, the other dogs LISTEN! Posy is the mother of Ginny, Penny and Max so is very much the foundation of our Silk Dog breeding program. Posy is a Certified Havana Silk Dog™

This is Pala, aka Ch Elfin's Last Word From Feliz RA CGC TT TDI. Pala is Pearlie's little sister. I call her our 'college girl' because she excels in performance competition as well as conformation. In fact, Pala was fairly bored by the conformation ring (unlike Pearlie, the diva, who LOVED the adulation of the crowd) and was so happy to finish her Championship so she could quit primping and trotting around the ring. She thinks Rally Obedience is MUCH more fun! We will probably try our hand at agility in the future, time and energy permitting. On July 21, 2007, Pala passed the ATTS Temperament Test and earned an additional title 'TT' to wear behind her name. Pala is a Certified Havana Silk Dog™
Update...Pala is now the beloved companion of a very special couple in Richmond, VA.

This is Ginny, aka Ch Elfin Sweet Virginia Breeze. Ginny is Posy's daughter from the Fall 2005 "Weather Related Song Title " litter. She was born on the birthday of the recently passed mother of a long time friend of mine...the mother's name was Virginia, everyone called her Ginny, so Ginny was named in her honor. Ginny is our impudent little scamp. She'll do anything for a treat. I keep a grooming table in front of the couch so I can groom dogs while watching TV and Ginny will jump on it herself over and over again, even after she's done because she thinks "jump on table, get combed, get treat!" Ginny is a Certified Havana Silk Dog™ *Update: Ginny has retired and is now in training to be a certified therapy dog. Click on Ginny's picture to go to her page.
Comp CH Elfin Dancing the Dream, "Dancer" was born on July 14, 2009 on a day that massive renovations were occuring at Elfin. Pala's Parade pups were all named with "D" and all referring to the happenings that day. For their story and to watch them grow, please visit their page under "Past Puppies". Sired by Multi CH Elfin Just In Time "Max" out of Multi CH Elfin's Last Word From Feliz "Pala", it was great fun having this parade of 8 puppies marching through my life.
Dancer is currently living with Judy and Jan Millard in Charlotte, NC who also have Lark's daughter, Skye, and Star's brother, Jack

Like her mother, she's a blue Irish pied, but more petite. Lolly is a happy, outgoing, sweet natured girl.
