In Memorium

Owned by Erin Foley, Chris Ellison and Susan Brightman

Every time we introduced Elsa to someone they said oh…  “Elsa from the movie Frozen”
but actually she was named after the Lioness in the movie “Born Free”.  Everyone that met Elsa
fell in love with her because she was so gentle, sweet and loving.  At her puppy class Elsa was chosen
to work with the most difficult puppies because of her sweetness.  She was always gentle with children who wanted to pet her and rarely barked unless she was protecting us.  We often took her to Syracuse University where she made the day for students and staff who came out from “under the wood work” to see her. 
Elsa left a legacy of 10 beautiful puppies.  Although our sweet and beautiful Elsa Bear was only with us
a very short time she left us all with beautiful memories which will be with us forever.
