Elana has certainly brought much joy to Betty and Jim. Elana worked as a guide dog breeder in Marin County, and had a total of four litters. Her pups grew up to assist individuals who are blind.
After her fourth litter, Elana had to retire due to a lump in her breast, which could complicate her health as well as her offspring. Betty and Jim both agree that Elana has been by far been the sweetest and best-behaved dog they have ever owned. The trio enjoy the walking paths around Eskaton Village Carmichael where they live.
