A wonderful tribute from Juha

This is a quote from Juha Karis's Chic Choix website. How proud are we!
Thank you so much Juha.

The two JKs! Juha Karis and 11-year-old JK

About the same time one more miracle happened.
I went to UK to judge an open show. By accident I went to visit my friend Jenni Savolainen who moved to UK.
Year before in UK I saw some lhasas that catched my eye. I realized they all had a same sire BISS GB Ch Kutani Reckless, bred and owned by Mrs Wendy Cain, Kutani kennel.
So we decided with Jenni to visit Wendy Cain.
As I saw Reckless aka “JK” I couldn´t believe my eyes. It was like the moment I saw San Jo´s Party Popper. I knew this wonderfull male is made for my females. I knew this dog is studdog of the century. I loved him.
In that same hearthbeat I knew I must have this dog to Finland. What is so special with JK is his wonderfull topline and carriage.
He moves effortless and keep his topline perfectly in action. His head is also nice and bite is perfect. He does have also very nice coat texture. I would also say he has the perfect height-length ratio of lhasa apso.
Soon after the arrangements were done and this handsome, sweet boy came to live with me.
He has been pleasure to show, his attitude is unreal he is a real lhasa yet real showmachine. This is the quality Kutani lhasas are known for they show better than anything.

JK won groups in 4 different countries and became top lhasa in Finland easily. he has also been top lhasa in UK aswell as top studdog.
He has won big specialty BISS and group in UK too. I m so greatfull to have this wonderfull dog in Finalnd. he is now Multi BIS & BIG-winning Int & Fin & GB & S & DK & N & Est & Am Ch , FinW-05 Kutani Reckless.
