THE LHASA APSO CLUB JUNE 2004
What a lovely venue Bromham is, we were able to have a good sized ring outside on the grass, which showed the dogs off to real advantage. My thanks to exhibitors for such a quality entry. I did find a variance in size and type, with a few narrow jaws which lacked chin and gave jumbled mouths. Upright shoulder and short upper arms are also rather more common than I expected. However, there were some really lovely Lhasa Apsos present and presentation was superb. I was delighted with my winners.
1 Hazlehurst’ Abosengkye Alaskha by Corrolls. Nice parti with lovely outline. Sweet head with correct skull and oval eye. Neat reverse scissor bite. A confident baby who moved out well and used his hocks to drive. Good rib cage and ribbed well back;

1 Gillman’ Mytilene Lord Loxley. Smart b/w, nice for size. Loved his head, slight rise over skull, and good fall away. Oval eye, good ear set. His arched neck flowed into good enough shoulders and he had enough length of upper arm to enable him to extend to match his rear drive. Masculine eye catcher. RBP;
