SBIS CH. KAMGAARD KOTTON TO ME
(August 13, 2003 - December 2, 2019)
Perhaps an "unsung hero" next to his notable sibling sisters Kameo Appearance and Kan You Hear Me Now, "Lykke" had been living a somewhat secluded life with co-owner Elaine Oakes in North Carolina. He accumulated a number of single and double points in the local but Elkhound-sparse area where he lived with Elaine handling him.
After the American National in '08, he went to live with Kristi Wehking in Wisconsin who put him into beautiful condition, polished up his manners and coat and waited until he was ready to "dazzle 'em!" That he did in his first show at the Norwegian Elkhound Association of Minnesota Specialty week-end that October. The first day out he was Winners Dog, Best of Winners and BEST OF BREED! over a number of top specials for a big 5 point major under master breeder-judge Lana Hall ("Rikkana") ably handled by Georgy Covey. The second day of the week-end he was Winners Dog under breeder-judge Dr. Robert Indeglia ("Tekdal") for his second major. He finished his Championship the first week-end out in January '09 with a Best of Breed from the classes. The following month, his first show as a Champion has netted him yet another Specialty Best in Show at the Greater Milwaukee Norwegian Elkhound Association Specialty Show under breeder-judge Sally Berger ("Galena Creek")!!!
This dog has the classical breed type befitting his pedigree and it is our hope that he will be able to reproduce it.
