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.
