In Memory of Honta

My dearest Lhasa girl N & S Ch Mia's Phoccahonta passed away 18.12.2009 13 1/2 years old.

Image

Last year in 2008 I had been owner of Lhasa Apsos for 20 years. The week before Christmas this year I took a sad decision to take a final goodbye to my last Lhasa, my dear Honta, born in 1996. Honta was great-grand daughter of my first Lhasa Ch Mia's Philadelfia. She had a very nice, calm, loving temperament, she was always a good girl - Thank you very much Honta for all your love! I miss you sadly, but you are living further in my heart. Sleep well.

On Thuesday 2 of June I, my brother and cousin were out in Oslo for a delicious dinner and Mamma Mia the musical - a fantastic show!

Brick and Disco got 3 females - 1 creame and 2 goldens.

The whelping was expected in the end of May, the same weekend as the Swedish Löwchen show in Karlstad, so I had to get some help from a friend of mine while I was away. I left Friday 29.5 and in the night I got the happy message that the puppies were born - 3 girls during 20 minutes! Everything went well. The date of birth then became the same day as Lotta Hellström's Memorial Show!

Fore more information, see my puppy page.

Hearty Thank You Anette Rugland, for taking so good care of Brick, the birth and the small puppies the first week!

Thank you very much, Jari, for coming by plane from Støren to Bergen, to handle Mensa for me!!

7.-11. March I was in Austria instead of Crufts Dog show for a ski vacation together with my job colleagues, and the day after arrival I unfortunately did fall on the hill and broke my right shoulder/upper arm. I was transportet to a doctor and got my arm in bandage and had to relaxe in the hotel for the rest of the days. I realised that I wouldn't be able to groom my dogs or go to the dog show in Bergen for the next weeks. Then my friends Nina and Birger Kjærgård acted and got Mensa to their home to make her ready for the show, which Nina did perfectly!!! Finally at home, my other dogs were quite mattered and needed to be brushed and washed as well. Magia stayed with Berit and Jan Arne Sjøholt for one week and was groomed by Berit. My friend Anette Rugland helped me with Seidi and Danny.

Just few days before the show the doctor in Norway said I could take off the bandage, and then I decided to go to Bergen and join Berit and Jan Arne on their way.

Big Thank You for all help!!! Very much appreciated!
Both Nina and Berit have some health problems with their arms/shoulder, too, and are/have recently been away from their job. And knowing that Nina's junior girl Kendra also competed for the NKK cc... Great done!
