Elmo is our first russian toy, the one it all started from. We bought him just for a pet and a companion, he was the fattest puppy of the litter (he was called Michelin-man) and when all the other puppies came to jump around us, Elmo thought it was too much of an exercise and went to sleep. But as we took him home, I noticed straight away how he wanted to help me with everything and be in the center of all action. He was happy, brave and he had a lot of temperament, and as he got older he also got the Male attitude, now he's the dude of the hood. In shows he's full of himself and at his best he is the show stopper in the rings.
Characterwise Elmo is just wonderful. He is very people-friendly and open, intelligent, a silly joker, a couch potato at home but when it's time for action - he's in it 110%. He is not afraid of anything - he is a fierce watch dog (I mean he would literally defend us with his life), I think he would be brave enough to attack at a bear. And he chased a moose once. He seemed pretty sure he could take the moose down. He has also tried to herd reindeers.. The reindeers were lucky to be behind a fence. Elmo really thinks he is the biggest of all dogs.
Elmo is such a healthy, outgoing dog with a good terrier-like attitude, he has a wonderful strong structure, free movement and a ring appearance to die for.
Elmo's second hobby is agility, he is super fast and a natural tallent there. He likes to play rough and agility offers just the speed and challenge that he enjoys. He also proved to be very clever, obedient and willing to work at the training.
I'm also very proud to say that Elmo is representing the smooth russian toy in a finnish dog book called "Hyvä koira kotiin" (Päivi & Tapani Romppainen / WSOY / published 2010).
Elmo was very succesful already at young age; as a puppy he was BOB nine times out of ten (once BM-2), he was also Best of Group -3 in a puppy show and Best In Show 2 in SKKY Specialty.
As a puppy he also won the Best Movements in Finnish Russian Toy Association's Open Show, over all of the young, adult, smooth and long-haired rt’s in the show! Quite an achievement for a puppy!
Elmo’s great success didn’t stop at the puppy classes. At the age of ten months, he took his first adult Best of Breed in Turku International All-Breeds Show - and again, was shortlisted in group! After that we entered the Finnish Winner and Nordic Winner Shows, and the results were great; he got the titles of Finnish Winner -09, Finnish Junior Winner -09, Nordic Winner -09 and Nordic Junior Winner -09 - still, only ten months old and in a very tough competition!
In World Dog Show 24.-27.6.-2010 Elmo continued by taking the World Junior Winner -title! He was the first smooth russian toy in Finland to do this.
Finally, Elmo finished shows 2010 with Best of Breed in the Russian Toy Speciality held in the Finnish Toy Dog Association’s Championship Show!
In 2011 Elmo wasn't shown much but to mention a few results; he became Finnish Champion in Hyvinkää and Best of Breed and Best In Show 2 in Finnish Russian Toy Association’s Open Show! Finally he was also BOB in Helsinki Winner.
In summer 2012 Elmo took his first BIG-placement in Rovaniemi INT - he was the first smooth russian toy ever in Finland to get a group placement! After that Elmo started taking consecutive Bests of Breed again and he was also Best of Breed in the Russian Toy Specialty - again. He also took another BIG-4 in Helsinki National show in September!! Elmo became Russian Toy of The Year #2 (by only 1 point difference to the #1)! Elmo also became the Showdog of the year 2012 in our agility association, Kanavan Koirakilta.
2013 was the last active year for Elmo. He was still taking consecutive Bests of Breed, visited Lithuania and got title of Lithuanian Champion with BOB, soon after that he was BIG-4 in Kankaanpää under Tuire Okkola with great compliments. But the most unforgettable moment was, when in the Budapest World Dog Shows he got BOB & BOS, 2x CAC and titles of World Winner and Hungarian Champion!!!
In 2014 we still visited a couple of shows with him, and got the title of Swedish Champion. He was also BOS in Russian Toy Open Show. Unfortunately, after that he lost some teeth and we decided it was time to retire him.
Elmo is now retired. In his career, Elmo took 35 BOB's, titles of Junior World Winner and World Winner, group placements, Specialty BOB's, 8 Winner titles, Champion of 4 countries... He was one of the best.
Here is a criticue from Pia Lundberg that I think sums up Elmo's presence in the ring;
"4-årig championhane. En sund själ i en sund kropp. Han förenar substansen i sitt lilla format och visar sig på tåspetsarna." In English: "4 year old champion male. A healthy soul in a healthy body. He puts substance in a small package and presents himself down to his toes."
