We are expecting two really interesting lhasa apso litters. These expected babies are tribute to the past and to our mentors & breeders before us. So therefore we have every reason to say Historical puppies are expected. Both much waited and carefully planned litters are sired by BEST in SHOW – winning Int & Fin & Norw & Swe & Dan & Est & CZ & LV & Lit Ch Chic Choix Dream Like A King (aka Louis). This stunning and handsome powerfully moving male is everything we believe a real stud dog should be. Real stud dogs should be King a like dogs that are the strongest presentatives of their population. These easy living healthy dogs mate just like that. Mating should always be in top breeding like piece of cake. In this case they were all that. In best matings the pheromones do support the mating. Female knows this stud is just about right for her. Do never underestimate pheromones. Dogs themselves know a lot too. Our girls preference seemed to be 100 % Louis.  He has also such a special pedigree that is full of lhasa apso history. 

This kind of one and only & open minded pedigrees like Louis have. Were possible to create as I started to breed Chic Choix lhasa apsos as a youngster. The outcome is our one and only kind of pedigrees. I did not carry narrow mind or harmful limits in my mind as a teenager. But for me the World was full of opportunities. I was like a child in a candy store. I was trying to collect the very best lhasa apso flavors around the World from where ever I could find them: South to North California, Croatia, Delaware, Denmark, Finland, Florida, Italy, Maryland, Norway, Sweden, UK, Washington State and Virginia. Thanks to my loving parents. I was able to travel million of miles and create just the pedigrees I wanted.

One of these outcomes is  BEST in SHOW – winning Int & Fin & Norw & Swe & Dan & Est & CZ & LV & Lit Ch Chic Choix Dream Like A King. He does carry in his unique and “open minded” pedigree the legendary legacy of what we feel is the very best of the Barjea, Hy Lan, Kinderland Ta Sen, Kutani, Marlo, Misti Acres, Orlane, Palominos, San Jo, Saxonsprings, Sho Tru, Tintavon and Whishborne blood. Not forgetting the Finninsh touch by Annlines, Benefic and Daragoj.  Louis is a living example of my wonderful journey with lhasa apsos around the World from childhood to adulthood over 4 decades. For me he is very Historical lhasa in so many ways. All those fine details and genes these decades & lines do/did carry can be found from Louis and his pedigree. Jet black pigmentation, perfect coat texture, wide underjaw, perfect bite, straight frontlegs, perfect laid back shoulders, short strong loin and perfect lhasa apso movement we are specially proud of. Louis noble super intelligent temperament is like icing of the cake. Therefore we are so proud to carry on his truly unique legacy with some of the finest young Champion females we have.

Past generations have strongly proven me and some of my best mentors in the breed one thing clearly. That bit shorter and taller males are needed in the breeding every now and then to be able to produce the shape and style of what we feel is a perfect lhasa apso. Our beloved breed seems to get very long and loose in loin easily.  The ribcage and body also do fall between the fronlegs quite easily producing clumsy and heavy look that is more shih tzu than a true lhasa. If you are not carefully and not breed against those serious faults.

Welcome to the World of Chic Choix lhasa 2017 baby news and History in making.

BEST in SHOW – winning Int & Fin & Norw & Swe & Dan & Est & CZ & LV & Lit Ch Chic Choix Dream Like A King carrying on the legendary legacy of the  Barjea, Hy Lan, Kinderland Ta Sen, Kutani, Marlo, Misti Acres, Orlane, Palominos, San Jo, Saxonsprings, Sho Tru, Tintavon and Whisborne blood. Not forgetting the Finnishing touch by Annlines, Benefic and Daragoj.

This look & chin presents for me the classical UK lhasa look as it use to be.  As told me by Paul Stanton & Tor-Björn Skaar (Tintavon) early 1980s. How great it was later on to produce that look. Wide underjaw with 6 large teeth in straight line.  Indeed I needed Tintavon dogs in the pedigree to be able to produce that. As here presenting his look & perfect dentation/bite BEST in SHOW – winning Int & Fin & Norw & Swe & Dan & Est & CZ & LV & Lit Ch Chic Choix Dream Like A King.

First female in whelp to BIS-winning Int & Fin & Norw & Swe & Dan & Est & CZ & LV & Lit Ch Chic Choix Dream Like A King is Champion Chic Choix Parti de Bollinger (Multi BIS & BISS Int & HRH & Fin & Swe & Norw & Dan & Slo & Est Ch Khalila Krug Grande x Fin Ch Chic Choix Peppermint Parti). She comes from our unique bitchline starting from a female from full brother to sister mating.  Am & Fin Ch Orlane´s Discovery was imported from Linda Kendall Smith & Joan Kendall (Orlane) Delaware, USA. She started our Desi-bitchline in Chic Choix.

We have combined Desi and her daughters what we believe is the very best in USA & European traditions. Believe it or not first generation got started in Washington DC Internatinonal airport. Every generation has been bred with top stud dogs in different countries trying to achieve the very best. As an outcome this tradition is known for their powerful bodies and shape we believe is for perfection. On the way we have produced some very unique pedigrees not to be found in any other place in the World. We have added also our own Chic Choix blood in by top producing BISS Int & Fin & Swe & Norw & Dan & Est & LV & Lit CH Chic Choix Parti Alexander. We did mix this in Desi-bitchline to produce ultimate reach and drive. There is nothing so beautiful as proud noble lhasa moving well and carrying her perfcect silhouette in action. This is what our Desi bitchline is all about. Now we are getting to generation 4 in this bitchline and we are thirilled. This line also do carry strong black & silver and particolor factor.

Second female in whelp to  BIS – winning Int & Fin & Norw & Swe & Dan & Est & CZ & LV & Lit Ch Chic Choix Dream Like A King is one of our youngest Champion females Fin & Est Ch Chic Choix Pantea Artesbod (Int & Fin & Swe & Norw Ch Chic Choix Sail The Seven Seas x Int & Fin & N & Swe & Est Ch Chic Choix Roxana at Tza-Ma) who presents our legendary World record breaking unbroken Multi Champion Bye Bye Birdy bitchline in 9:th generation. This bitchline has produced over 100 Champions that have won over 100 all breed BEST in SHOWs around the World. This makes Bye Bye Birdy bitchline as one of the most successful bitchlines in the World in all breeds.

The original idea of importing this line for me was to get fertility and shorter compact loins to European lhasas. It was also very important to me get straighter front legs to Europe. This together with good bodies, cream/honey/golden colors with harsh coat textures, vitality and open temperaments was what I was looking for. I must say I did got all that and more. Dog breeding is also a matter of luck. I must say that I was in a right place at the right time in Lodi late 1980´s. So I got my legendary Int & Fin & Swe & Norw & Est Ch Hy Lan Sho Tru Bye Bye Birdy who became the foundation of Bye Bye Birdy bitchline in Europe.

Our Int & Fin & Swe & Norw & Est Ch Hy Lan Sho Tru Bye Bye Birdy  (BISS Am & Can Ch Hy Lan Sho Tru Tak´M By Storm x AM Ch Hy Lan – Orlane Snow Bird – littersister to legendary BIS GB Ch Orlane´s Luck Be A Lady) from late Midge Hylton (Hy Lan)  & Pat Keen (Sho Tru) was first bred out in Finland. At the very beginning we mixed this great tradition to our strong San Jo influenced original line  with dogs like Multi BISS Int & Fin & AM & Swe & Dan & Norw & Est Ch Chic Choix Ashley Wilkes to get details & movement we wanted. These details  & ideas of movement were teached to me by  my greatest lhasa mentor late Marianne Nixon (San Jo). This lady was a true perfectionist by nature. How very lucky I was to be under her wings to get started. Later this tradition was blended with great Kinderland – Ta Sen lhasas bred by Ellen Lonigro and Susan Giles in Virginia to get smooth shoulders and clean bodies to our lhasas. These Kinderland – Ta Sen generations helped us to get better heads and keep on the straight front legs in our lhasas.

Fin & Est Ch Chic Choix Pantea Artesbod (Int & Fin & Swe & Norw Ch Chic Choix Sail The Seven Seas x Int & Fin & N & Swe & Est Ch Chic Choix Roxanna at Tza-Ma) is proud mum to be of our second litter in 2017. She does present legendary Bye Bye Birdy bitchline at its best. The same look over the decades and generations time after time is all there. 

That is how it all started 10 generations and many decades ago. AM Ch Hy – Lan Orlane Snow Bird (littersister of BIS GB Ch Orlane´s Luck Be A Lady) AM Ch Hy Lan Na Kai of Kyu Ru x Am Ch Orlane´s Early Bird). She was the mother of our Int & Fin & Swe & Norw & Est Ch Hy Lan Sho Tru Bye Bye Birdy. Can you see the similarities over the decades that we have tried to keep in our legendary Birdy bitchline generation after generation?

Both of these litters should produce type and style Chic Choix lhasas are known for all over the World. This is easy moving, proud lhasas, with sturdy but clean body, who carry themselves also in action while still having the true reach and drive. We are also very worried about typical charisma of the true Tibetan lhasa apso. That seems to be more and more rare quality in modern lhasas. There are too many silly tail waggers that  do not have the attitude and mind of their own as a true lhasa apso should. We hate stupidness and ever go happy temperament in lhasas. As that is not what we feel this breed is all about. Therefore  we are very very proud to continue our breeding with clean house broken, intelligent, stubborn, noble personalities who suddenly have mind of their own as every true lhasa apso should.

Our becoming pedigrees are not found in every living room. Vitality, strong temperament and easy long life are qualities that we are aiming for. We are expecting rainbow of colors including black & silvers, parti colors (white & black and white & goldens), cream and goldens and ever brindle carriers. These future babies are ment for the people who deeply love lhasa apsos. People who are interested in continuing the unique tradition and pedigrees. There must be respect and understanding of the hard work behind these future babies and their pedigrees. It is ever burning passion which made these pedigrees and babies possible. Passionate lhasa lovers are the right owners for these babies – we can forget the rest.
