I'm discovering that the blacks are not as popular as the golds and few people are interested in considering a black puppy as their pet. I've always loved the black Lhasas. Our first was a female we bought from Mary Soto named Sunshines Black Cherry. From Cherry, we got our black male Ch. Joyslyn's Mirage. He was so gorgeous. And from Raj came Bert, who taught me never to let my kids name puppies since he was fat little guy that the kids named "Fat Albert." We ended up keeping him and the name stuck (shortened to Bert though!) His AKC registered name was Ch. Joyslyn's Masquerade. Raj and Bert's pictures are on the Scrapbook page of the Joyslyn's website, but I'll try to remember to post them on the blog one of these days. We also had a black female named Mysti (Joyslyn's Mystique) and another male (I do love Lhasa males!) named Ch. Joyslyn MiToya Escapade.
As much as I love the blacks, my preference right now is not to keep another black since I have Mira and since the color black seems to take over pretty fast. On the other hand, I imagine I might be keeping Whisper as well as Maggie unless the right person comes along for her.

The next big thing will be thinking of AKC registration names for the puppy(ies) I keep. Right now, I am sure about Maggie so I will be calling upon readers for some suggestions. I'd like to use the word "Magic" in her name, or perhaps another word that starts with "m-a-g," so put on your creative thinking caps. Suggestions are welcome. A friend has offered "Joyslyn's Clearly Magic" or "Joyslyn's We've Got Magic To Do." (Those of you familiar with the musical Pippin will recognize where that name came from.) That's as far as the suggestions have gone.
So, life goes on at Joyslyn's as Lynn and I look forward to the coming year.
We wish each and every one of you many blessings during 2011. May you, your families, and your dogs enjoy good health, peace, happiness, prosperity, and Lhasa love.
Life is good when you have a Lhasa to love you.
