Eleonora won BOS for a major over a special her first weekend out as a puppy. A few more outings brought her to 9 points. She placed second behind her sister, Sylvan Ridgeside Sunset, in the National Sweepstakes and won her class as well as Best of Opposite Sex in the Futurity.
Eleonora was shown a couple of times in February, without Borzoi competition, but placed twice in the owner-handled Group and was Reserve Best OH in Show. It seldom happens that an especially nice win is matched with an equally good win photo, but this is one!
At the 2017 National, she place 3rd in a large Bred-By class. In July, she picked up a tough major in Houston, leaving her a few singles from her title.
Tragically, we lost Eleonora a few months later to an obscure fungal infection.

Sylvan The Captain at Ridgeside - sweeps winner, pointed
