International Endurance CH Concludes-Elhew Hannabell wins number 16

16 x CH Elhew Hannabell
The International Endurance CH runs at the Lake Murray Field Trial Area near Ardmore OK, each January. This trial consists of 90 minute heats.

This year the championship drew 29 competitors and they ran in tougher than normal conditions as this cold and winter weather pattern reached far in the southern US.

Elhew Hannabell came out on top with a great 5 find performance and Hot Topic was named Runner up. Shawn Kinkelaar was the handler of both dogs.

This was Hannabell's 16 Championship win which ties her with her 1/2 sister Elhew Swami, for most of their careers they were competing against each other as well as their other 1/2 sister Elhew Sunflower who won 15 championships. What a run for these three females and Hannabell may not be done yet. 

Next up at the Lake Murray grounds will be the Texas Open Shooting Dog Championship.
