Sour Grapes

Deita takes BOB and Group 2 at Manchester
This girl is such a star and has star quality.
Thank goodness Colin had the foresight to do the mating that produced a lovely litter.
Breed judge Jan Bromley
Group judge Geoff Corish
In every breed there are always those that don't accept a win for what it is, a quality dog winning.  There are always the moaners and small minded people who can't 'see it'
Sometimes these people don't have the courage to say what they are thinking themselves, they get someone else to do their 'dirty work' for them. To these people I say 'get a life, or get yourself a good dog so that you can compete with the best'
The test of a good judge is not the number of entries they pull in, but the quality of the dogs in that entry. What is the point of a huge entry if the quality is low.  Better to have a few excellent dogs to judge than to have hundreds of poor examples.


The future

Lhasas come in all colours
All as beautiful as each other
When it comes to judging, colour is secondary.
I love all the colours this wonderful breed comes in,
be it black, white, gold, cream, silver, brindle, grey or a mixture of any of these, all as beautiful as each other.

Chethang Nadia

Chethang Nadia
Trader's beautiful daughter died tragically yesterday.
Our thoughts are with Jacqui and David Chalmers who are devastated.
She was a typical Lhasa, beautiful and stubborn.
To know here was to love her.
Her legacy will be the babies she has left behind.

2012 proved an outstanding for Kutani

Ch Kutani Lightning Strike (Noah)  - Top Lhasa
Ch Tantra's Plenty O'Toole Isa Kutani (Deita) -  Top Bitch Lhasa
Ch Kutani Rogue Trader -  Top Sire Lhasa
Noah and Deita were made champions in this year.
Trader Top Sire for the 4th time running and this gorgeous boy died 4yrs ago before his 5th birthday.
Noah has had a Group 1, G2, G3 and 2 G4s
Deita ended the year with a G2 and she is not yet 2yrs old.
I can only say a heartfelt 'thank you' to all the judges that have helped make this possible. 
I am truly over the moon.
Our next generation is waiting in the wings
Hopefully they will maintain this amazing standard.
