Such exciting news and the result of a LOT of cooperation-Madison(Kailasa Xquisite) has four babies from the frozen semen of Estonian/Lithuanian/Finnish/Swedish/Latvian and International Champion Chic Choix Touch Of Class (Tazi). A HUGE thankyou to Marilyn, Leigh,Karen and Beryl (Sooquan) who entrusted their last straws of the semen to my self and vet ,Dr Steve Metcalfe. We have two boys and two girls.
We also received the news mid January 2009, that Tommy was the Top Open Show Dog for the Non Sporting group and would compete at the prestigious Classic show in March along with representatives from the other six groups, for the top award. Tommy showed so well on the night and became the Canine Association of WA's Top Open Show Dog 2008, in March.
It was an exciting end to 2008 with Tommy (Ch Kailasa Affair Oth Heart) finishing #2 Non Sporting Dog in Western Australia and #1 Lhasa Apso. The last show of the year was the Canine Fund Raisers New Year's Eve show which saw Tommy win Best In Group - a significant win under Lhasa Apso breeder/judge, Peter Primrose. This was followed by a Best in Group win under Pam Campbell and Runner Up to Best In Show, under Peter Tallentire in January.
