Norwegian Elkhounds were my first love and will always hold a special place in my heart!
This was my ever faithful friend "Mariah" Norlander's Midnight Fantasy. Even though she wasn't an AKC Champion, she had a very special place in my heart. Lost her June 3, 2009. It was one of the hardest days of my life saying goodbye.
