|I acquired my first dog in 1964 which was a Shetland Sheepdog called Tint. In 1966 I went to work for the famous Hardacre kennels then mainly breeding and showing Basset Hounds but Anne Matthews had just starting breeding the then rare Lhasa Apsos and Tibetan Terriers and I became obsessed with the Lhasa’s temperament and in 1969 I acquired my first Lhasa and have had them ever since and my first Tibetan Terrier, UK Ch Dokham Cavarodossi of Tintavon was born in 1970 who went on to be the first Tibetan Terrier in the world to win BIS at an all breeds Championship show (1974). I owned or bred 10 UK Champions and I am the only person to have made up Ch.s in the three Tibetan breeds in the UK before moving to Sweden in 1977. We have owned or bred 10 Lhasa Apsos who have won All Breeds BIS and many other group winners but our most famous dog in Sweden was again a Tibetan Terrier, a double grand daughter of Cavarodossi named Int Nordic Ch BIS BISS Tintavon Desdemona who won Top Dog all breeds in Sweden, Finland and Nordic competitions in 1979.
Brown Miniature Poodles were kept for a short time where we made up two Int, Champions and bred one litter which resulted in two new Champions.
Whippets came into our house about twenty five years ago and we breed the odd litter with some excellent results like Best female at the famous Swedish sight hound show, her grand daughter won BPIS at the same show and whose son was a group winner.
We have added a new breed to our kennel, the Thai Bangkaew Dog (Group 5 Primitive Spitz Breed) and are the first to import this breed to Europe & we plan to import more & our first litter was born on the 11 December 2012.
I awarded C.C.s in England in Lhasas (1974) and Tibetan Terriers (1975) before moving to Sweden where I continued my judging exams to become FCI All Rounder in 1996. I have now judged in well over 50 countries on all continents and some of my judging highlights are Crufts in 1981 (Lhasa Apsos) Tibetan Terrier Silver Jubilee show (UK), South Eastern Tibetan Spaniel Ch show (UK), The Chow Chow Ch Show (UK). Canadian English Springer National specialty. Sydney, Perth and Hobart Royals, New Zealand KC National show (1998 & 2008). Gundog group at Hatboro Ch show (USA), 4 Groups at Cherry Blossom Circuit shows 2010 (USA) plus the many times I have had the honour to judge BIS in countries like France, Japan, Canada, New Zealand and Australia & The Scandinavian countries.
