It is again time to move forward with our lhasa apso breeding program. We thought we do it with style. We have one very special female who is almost faultless. It is such a luxury to be able to breed generation eight with her. Ch Chic Choix Sabotage aka “Sabina” (Multi BIS & BISS Int & Multi Ch WW-13 Chic Choix Alexander The Great x Ch Chic Choix Melanie Hamilton) is ideal in size, propotions, bite & dentation, pigmentation, movement, front, coat and temperament. If I could change something about her. I would hope she would have 0,2 inch longer nose and that “she would be a bit more obedient and less lhasa”. She has the oldfashion super stubborn mentality. Kind of thing you love and hate. To be honest – I want to protect that lhasa quality very strongly. Lhasa apso must be original Tibetan dog with mind of their own.
“Sabina” pedigree is smoothly line-bred (3,31 % in 5 generation) to our legendary top producing Bye Bye Birdy bitchline. So we feel it is time to breed her out from Bye Bye Birdy-line this time and reach even more. There is not many males out there that we feel potentially could help our breeding program to reach more with this very special girl. But there is some. So we choose very exciting and interesting male for her. Male that we can linebreed to something we feel is very safe and best possiple at this time. We believe he got what it takes. “Sabina” is strongly in whelp and we are waiting first Autumn babies to be born early September 2017.
The “criteria map” for male was: not closely related, interesting pedigree, longer nose, super long upperarm to keep and produce the true and rare reach (that so few lhasas have). This means long upper arm and very smooth shoulder/upperarm. Let´s face it: Equally import to produce true reach and effortless movement & carriage is the temperament. So we need a male with powerful king a like attitude. Sound body, well angulated front and perfect tail carriage were the things we were looking for. So who could be male to face these criterias?
Male we love and feel has so much to offer is ofcourse our young super star BIG-winning Chic Choix Black Pepper (BISS Int & Multi Ch Chic Choix Parti Alexander x Int & AM & Fin & Swe & Est & Lv Ch Kumi Kian Hot´N´Spicy )
That male is ofcourse our exciting new black & silver male who is already a big winner. He won his first BEST in GROUP just bit over one year of age. He is BIG-win. Chic Choix Black Pepper. We just love him. His sire is our top producing BISS Int & Multi Ch Chic Choix Parti Alexander (BISS Int & GB & Nord & AM Ch Kutani Reckless x BISS Int & Multi Ch Chic Choix Surprise Parti). Alexander is also Sabina grandfather. So this litter will be classical Bruce Lowe method linebreeding in 2-3:rd generation to one and only BISS Int & Multi Ch Chic Choix Parti Alexander. Parti Alexander and his littermates have been superior producers and this litter is one of the most successful lhasa litters ever in the history of the breed. Alexander and his brothers & sisters have won together over 100 BEST in GROUP 1:sts and over 50 BEST in SHOW 1:sts in allbreed level. They all are also now BIS winning veterans. They all have been also top producers. So our next litter will be 6,25 % linebreeding to Alexander for a very good reason: vitality, health and the look we love in lhasas.
Interesting thing is that Chic Choix Black Pepper aka “William” remain me so much of two great lhasas I have seen before. For me “William” is a re-incarnation of great BISS AM Ch Marlo Somethin Basic Black whose littersister Marlo Somethin Jessica we imported from late Lynn Lowy (Marlo). Needless to say she is behind “William”. Basic Black was a great producer. Let´s hope “William” is like his incarnation. I do feel “William” also remain somehow a lot Leslie Ann Engen & late Marianne Nixon BISS AM Ch Manta´s This Bud for You S. J. who I did like a lot too.
Bruce Lowe linebreeding theories are something that we first tried back 1984. The outcome was legendary and ever since we have believed that method a lot. The ultimate results we have had in some 2-3 generation pedigrees. The secret is that you must know and believe who do you line-breed to. This time we do.
This future litter will be linebred to legendary producer BISS Int & Multi Ch Chic Choix Parti Alexander (BISS Int & GB & Nord & AM Ch Kutani Reckless x BISS Int & Multi Ch Chic Choix Surprise Parti). In this photo Alexander is 9 years of age.
Black Pepper mum is our unique American import Int & AM & Fin & Swe & Est & Lv Ch Kumi Kian Hot´N´Spicy (Am Ch Kumi KIan Hot Diggity x Am Ch Kumi Kian Cauzin A Commotion). From Spicy we get some new blood and very good strong qualities to this future pedigree. This classical and a very much an ideal bitch is bred by Ann Lanterman & Tia McLaughlin in USA. We never can thank them enough to have Spicy. She has been such wonderful female in so many ways. She is a super star at home, in the ring and in the whelping box.
Grandmother of the expected litter is our American import Int & AM & Fin & Swe & Est & Lv Ch Kumi Kian Hot´N´Spicy (Am Ch Kumi KIan Hot Diggity x Am Ch Kumi Kian Cauzin A Commotion). She is such a classical and true lhasa bitch all over.
“Sabina” is carrying now Chic Choix generation next. We can´t wait to see the outcome. We are expecting rainbow of colours and thrilling puppies. Mum “Sabina” has been very slightly shown and we are growing now the coat back for her. She needs only one cacib for her International title. She finished her Fin & Est titles with flying colours with BOB´s over Champions.
Proud mum to be Fin & Est Ch Chic Choix Sabotage (Multi BIS & BISS Int & Multi Ch WW-13 Chic Choix Alexander The Great x Ch Chic Choix Melanie Hamilton) has the temperament, shape and size of our ideal lhasa.
Fin & Est Ch Chic Choix Sabotage continues our legendary top producing record breaking & winning Bye Bye Birdy bitch-line. This legendary bitch-line has produced hundreds of Champion over the decades. These golden girls are just the same generation after generation. This is the package 1990 started from our Int & Fin & Swe & Norw & Est Ch Hy-lan Sho Tru Bye Bye Birdy and we have been able to continue the tradition ever since. Needless to say we are thrilled to see how will Chic Choix Black Pepper first babies be?
“Sabina” mum and other grandmother of the litter is such a typical example of Bye Bye Birdy bitch-line golden girls. She is Ch Chic Choix Melanie Hamilton (BIS Int & AM & Fin & Pol & Est & LV & Lit Ch Rufkins Monarch Love Bytes x Int & Fin Ch Chic Choix Shades of Tara).
Father to be is our super promise BIG-winning Chic Choix Black Pepper (BISS Int & Multi Ch Chic Choix Parti Alexander x Int & AM & Fin & Swe & Est & Lv Ch Kumi Kian Hot´N´Spicy ).
