Dream Team


What an amazing year 2012 has been for Kutani
taking 14 CCs in total.
Noah 9 CCs 6 Res CCs
Deita 5 CCs and 5 Res CCs
We have had a Group 1,  2 Group 2s,  1 Group 3  and  2 Group 4s.
Noah (Ch Kutani Lightning Strike) is just 3yrs old and Deita will be 2yrs old in January.
Thank you to all the judges for making this possible and thank you for your confidence in putting up such a young bitch. She is a star turn and her best is yet to come.
We have two exciting pups waiting in the wings, untrained and unschooled, the usual Kutani way!
Oscar (Kutani Skyfall) and his sister Kitty (Kutani Pussy Kat).
Their father is Noah, so they have a lot to live up to.
See you at next year's show.

B'ham Critique

By judge Albert Wight:

OD (5) Only 5 but all Champions and each in impeccable condition.
1 & Res CC Cain's Ch Kutani Lightning Strike. Almost the complete package, the right size and substance, well sprung ribs carry well back, his reach of neck and tail set and carriage add to a compelling outline then dress it all in wonderful jacket and you have an eye-catcher. His head is a delight, oozes Apso quality and charm, so well pigmented, correct mouth and never set a foot wrong either in stance or on the move. More than happy to give him runner up spot to his close relative.

LB (12,1)
1 Cain's Tantra's Plenty O Toole Isa Kutani, what a flashy little number this black and white is. Charms in spades, beautifully headed, really well bodied, fabulous coat and presentation and moved around the ring as though she owned it. Her head is so good, correct bite, super eyes and skull fairly lean. Could end up titled.

(Of course Deita is now already a champion but not at the time the entries closed so not shown in catalogue).
Super write ups, very very proud.

LD (10)
1 & CC Lock's Littondale Vallentino. I see is a son of Ch. Chethang Nikodemus, so he is half brother to the OD winner which won the RCC. This was a very strong class, even in quality and a joy to behold. I simply loved the head quality of this dog. His mouth and bite are spot on, the muzzle so correct, the back skull lean and slightly receding, the ears frame the face with feathering and his expression is stunning. Blessed with a good neck, really well ribbed, strongly boned legs, level backed, beautifully set and carried well furnished tail and he was the soundest moving male of the day. This was his day, he looked every inch a Champion and I was very happy to give him his first CC.

Gino is by Ch Chethang Nikodemus (a Ch Kutani Rogue Trader son)
out of Kutani Shabbie Chic.
We had a great 'Kutani family' day.  Thank you to Mr Albert Wight for appreciating all our dogs so much, and huge CONGRATULATIONS to my friends Jill & Dave Lock on their first homebred CC.

Ch Tantra's Plenty O'Toole Isa Kutani

Deita has always been a Princess, loved by everyone,
but after the SKC weekend she came home a Queen.
Thank you to Colin, her breeder, for letting this special girl come to Kutani. 
Her sire, Ch/Aust Ch Kutani Secret Agent, is now resident in Australia, so this mating is a one off, making her even more special.  Her sister Pussy is just as good and hopefully she will carry her title one day after she has fulfilled her maternal duties.
I would just like to say 'Thank You' to everyone for your support and the many congratulations you have sent both myself and Colin.

Blackpool Critique

This is the critique from Juha Kares (Chic Choix) who judged Blackpool Championship Show 2012.
I am so proud of my two special dogs. 

Noah:  Cain's Kutani Lightning Strike. CC. What a handsome stallion this dog was. As he was standing in the wet ground he did not mind at all. This male with perfect Lhasa Apso proportions caught my eye in a heartbeat. He had an outstanding masculine head and expression. His shoulders were well laid back and topline was to die for. Well arched neck made the picture perfect. He was such a sound mover and carried his super profile to perfection even in this terrible weather. This handsome dog is really a world class Lhasa Apso. It was such a pleasure to judge this very strong class and I was so happy to find such a great winner.

Deita:    Cain's Tantra's Plenty O'Toole Isa Kutani. This is a Lhasa Apso. She is full of breed details. As this divine Lhasa Apso is looking to you the look is just what it should be. She gave me chills. This is the Lhasa Apso charisma, why we all love this Tibetan breed so much. As this superior female was standing on the wet ground I could not see clouds or rain. I did not feel cold. There is something very special about her. She is ideal in size, she had very nice body proportions. She has just the perfect amount of body. It is very rare to find Lhasa Apso with perfect volume of bone. For me this girl had just the volume and shape of bone I want to see with a Lhasa Apso bitch. She moved and carried herself so well. She had nice frontlegs. But I knew she was my winner the moment she stepped in the ring as she had the superior breed type and charisma that makes Lhasa Apsos such a special breed. Therefore it was crystal clear that she was my BOB.

Puppies expected

It was meant to be.
No sooner had we got the news that dear Kiss Kiss had died, then we had the exciting news that our Sky is in whelp.
She has been mated to Ch Kutani Lightning Strike.
Both these dogs have Kiss in their pedigrees.
Sky is a Ch/Aust Ch Kutani Secret Agent daughter
Noah is a Trader grandson
This litter will be due end of July / beginning of Aug.

The most beautiful Lhasa I have ever known, Ch Kiss Kiss Kutani, dam of Ch Kutani Rogue Trader, has died aged 13yrs. She was such a typical Lhasa, stubbord at times, but she was also a joy. Rest in peace beautiful girl ♥
