Summer means happy times and good sunshine. It means going to the beach, going to Disneyland, having fun. ~ Brian Wilson
Now some news and photos about Lhasas:
Lynn sent a photo of Amie. She’s adorable. Her sire was our Duncan (Ch. Joyslyn’s Highly Classified) and Maggie (Ch. Joyslyn’s Moonlight Magic).
Josh and Onyx are entered in shows in West Bend, WI, next weekend. Jenna is staying home.
According to the Canine Chronicle's stats through May 31, Josh is #7 in Breed points and #3 Owner-Handled Lhasa.
These photos are of Dalai. She was the apple of her owners’ eyes. Sadly, both died a few years ago and Dalai went to live with their neighbors, who had often been dog sitters for her when her owners had to be away and could not take her with them. The first photo was taken when she was a young girl and her original owners took her with them to Branson many years ago. Dalai’s groomer, Sally, keeps me up to date about her, telling me that the neighbors still take her to her previous house and sit on the steps for a while each day. (The new owners of the home are fine with that.) Dalai is now close to 14 (or maybe 15) years old — I’ve sort of lost track. She still goes to Sally, who recently posted the second photo on my FB page after Dalai had been groomed. She’s looking good in her old age! I am sure she still misses her previous owners, but I am forever grateful to the wonderful neighbors who wanted to take her and keep her as their own.

And I think we can all agree that
Life is Better When You Have a Lhasa to Love You!
It may be a few weeks before I write again. By then there should be puppy and show news to share. In the meantime, be safe, be happy, and enjoy your July!
