Ella was 4 years old before her owner Judy thought maybe they would try their hand at showing. She entered Ella @ shows near her home in Virginia in January 2014 and handed her over to professional handlers Kristyn McCartney & David Stout and the rest is history! Ella took to showing like a duck to water. That weekend she earned a total of 5 points and even was BOS over champion bitches two of the days.
Her 2nd weekend of shows was @ New England Sporting Dog Association in West Springfield, MA for two TarTan GSC Supported Entries. On Sat Ella was RWB and on Sun she earned her first major.
Well on her way to her title - her next stop was the Peach Blossom Cluster in Perry, GA which included 2 GSCA specialties. She won her 2nd major @ at the Friday all breed show and then at the morning Specialty on Sunday was Best of Winners for a 5 point major to finish her champion title. We couldn't be prouder of Ella!
Ella enjoyed her retirement until the 2019 GSCA National where she returned to the show ring and captured Best of Opposite in Veteran Sweeps from the 9-10 Yr class. She was also 2nd in the regular Veteran class. Piloted as always by Kristyn Stout.
Ella, a cancer survivor left us to cross the rainbow bridge on Friday, January 22, 2021. We were so happy to have the additional years her successful cancer treatment gave us. Sweet Ella will be missed by all who loved her.
