"Hi Wendy and Drew Just got news that Nina and James took Best in Group 1st and ran in the top 3 for Best in Show amongst some beautiful company both breed and group/show line ups. The show was in Sydney so very very proud of them two .... Very close now :) ♥ hugs Belinda"
Noah OD (5) Only 5 but all Champions and each in impeccable condition. 1
& Res CC Cain's Ch Kutani Lightning Strike. Almost the complete package, the
right size and substance, well sprung ribs carry well back, his reach of neck
and tail set and carriage add to a compelling outline then dress it all in
wonderful jacket and you have an eye-catcher. His head is a delight, oozes Apso
quality and charm, so well pigmented, correct mouth and never set a foot wrong
either in stance or on the move. More than happy to give him runner up spot to
his close relative. Deita LB (12,1) 1 Cain's Tantra's Plenty O Toole Isa Kutani, what a
flashy little number this black and white is. Charms in spades, beautifully
headed, really well bodied, fabulous coat and presentation and moved around the
ring as though she owned it. Her head is so good, correct bite, super eyes and
skull fairly lean. Could end up titled. (Of course Deita is now already a champion but not at the time the entries closed so not shown in catalogue). Super write ups, very very proud. Gino LD (10) 1 & CC Lock's Littondale Vallentino. I see is a son of
Ch. Chethang Nikodemus, so he is half brother to the OD winner which won the
RCC. This was a very strong class, even in quality and a joy to behold. I simply
loved the head quality of this dog. His mouth and bite are spot on, the muzzle
so correct, the back skull lean and slightly receding, the ears frame the face
with feathering and his expression is stunning. Blessed with a good neck, really
well ribbed, strongly boned legs, level backed, beautifully set and carried well
furnished tail and he was the soundest moving male of the day. This was his day,
he looked every inch a Champion and I was very happy to give him his first CC.
Gino is by Ch Chethang Nikodemus (a Ch Kutani Rogue Trader son) out of Kutani Shabbie Chic. We had a great 'Kutani family' day. Thank you to Mr Albert Wight for appreciating all our dogs so much, and huge CONGRATULATIONS to my friends Jill & Dave Lock on their first homebred CC.
Deita has always been a Princess, loved by everyone,
but after the SKC weekend she came home a Queen.
Thank you to Colin, her breeder, for letting this special girl come to Kutani.
Her sire, Ch/Aust Ch Kutani Secret Agent, is now resident in Australia, so this mating is a one off, making her even more special. Her sister Pussy is just as good and hopefully she will carry her title one day after she has fulfilled her maternal duties.
I would just like to say 'Thank You' to everyone for your support and the many congratulations you have sent both myself and Colin.

I am so proud of my two special dogs.
Noah: Cain's Kutani Lightning Strike. CC. What a handsome stallion this dog
was. As he was standing in the wet ground he did not mind at all. This male with
perfect Lhasa Apso proportions caught my eye in a heartbeat. He had an
outstanding masculine head and expression. His shoulders were well laid back and
topline was to die for. Well arched neck made the picture perfect. He was such a
sound mover and carried his super profile to perfection even in this terrible
weather. This handsome dog is really a world class Lhasa Apso. It was such a
pleasure to judge this very strong class and I was so happy to find such a great
Deita: Cain's Tantra's Plenty O'Toole Isa Kutani. This is a Lhasa Apso. She
is full of breed details. As this divine Lhasa Apso is looking to you the look
is just what it should be. She gave me chills. This is the Lhasa Apso charisma,
why we all love this Tibetan breed so much. As this superior female was standing
on the wet ground I could not see clouds or rain. I did not feel cold. There is
something very special about her. She is ideal in size, she had very nice body
proportions. She has just the perfect amount of body. It is very rare to find
Lhasa Apso with perfect volume of bone. For me this girl had just the volume and
shape of bone I want to see with a Lhasa Apso bitch. She moved and carried
herself so well. She had nice frontlegs. But I knew she was my winner the moment
she stepped in the ring as she had the superior breed type and charisma that
makes Lhasa Apsos such a special breed. Therefore it was crystal clear that she
was my BOB.
The most beautiful Lhasa I have ever known, Ch Kiss Kiss Kutani, dam of Ch Kutani Rogue Trader, has died aged 13yrs. She was such a typical Lhasa, stubbord at times, but she was also a joy. Rest in peace beautiful girl ♥
strutting his stuff and winning the Group at Bath Champ Show 2012.
What a super day for Kutani, not only Noah winning his 4th CC then BOB and ultimatly the Group, but also Deita winning her junior class and then to my astonishment, the Res CC at the tender age of 17 months old.
Thank you to our breed judge Beryl Bradford for the confidence in my dogs and Thank You to the group judge David Cavill for the icing on the cake.
BIS and Res BIS at the Scottish Lhasa Apso Club Show.
Both these dogs are sired by the fabulous Multi Ch Kutani Reckless. What a producer our dear JK has proven to be. In one weekend his progeny has been BIS, Res BIS and World Dog Show 2012 Lhasa BOB & Group 2. Truly amazing.
World Dog Show in Saltzberg, Austria Huge success for Chic Choix and Kutani. BOB and Group 2 went to Multi Ch Chic Choix Sky's The Limit who is a Ch Kutani Reckless son. What a great combination Chic Choix (Juha Karis) and Kutani has proven. The Best Bitch is one of my favourites, Chic Choix Cleopatra Euradice, litter sister to the wonderful Chic Choix Alexander The Great.
So very proud of my boy Noah (Kutani Lightning Strike) at the SKC Show last Friday. Under dire conditions he didn't let me down and strode out to take CC, BOB and a wonderful Group 4. Thank you to specialist judge Bruce Watson for a super day giving Noah his 3rd CC and so his 'crown'. Thank you also to Steve Hall for his Group 4 and for his 1st CC.
Many congratulations to Sue, Joan & John Scarll on making Timizinti Hope and Dreams a well deserved champion. Hope is a Ch Kutani Rogue Trader daughter thus making her his 8th champion offspring.
A super day for KUTANI at home and abroad Noah takes BIS at SELAS Open Show, judge Patsi Hollings.
Kutani Hollywood (Noah's son) owned by Maciej and Rafal in Poland, wins Junior, Best of Breed, Best Junior in Show all Breeds and to top it all BIS 3 Woody's litter brother Orlando, is now a Junior Champion in Belarus and Romania
