Chapter 1

Hi my name is Chris & I live in Cheshire.
I have owned & shown the Lhasa Apso since the mid 1990's.
I had many pets as a child & dogs of various breeds throughout the years.
The Lhasa Apso came into my life, when my children were young, as a family pet.
This small, stubborn, Tibetan dog soon had me fascinated with its personality & interesting history.
As a Sunday afternoon hobby I began to show my Apso at local open shows.I slowly graduated on to Championship shows where Drivin' Miss Daisy qualified for Crufts & gained her stud book number, I was Hooked!.....
My hobby became a passion & I began to breed my own stock.
Although I don't breed many litters I have bred an English Champion, Ch Now & Forever Deelayne,who was Top stud 2005,  a Lux/Bel Champion, Ch Rishlyn Rendition, group 9 winner & owned a Champion bitch, Ch Deelayne forever Dimond.
I have also Bred/owned CC, RCC, BPIB winning Lhasa Apsos & am proud to say my breeding is now behind some of the top winning Lhasa Apsos in the UK & abroad.



Chapter 2

At the age of  five, my daughter Karra started to show my dogs in junior handling classes that were held at local open shows. She was so small the judge or the steward had to put the dog on the table!

Karra quickly learned the ropes & began to enter the junior handling classes at Championship shows.

She has won many awards along the way including the JHA semi-fnals at Richmond, YKC finals handling & the YKC stakes finals at Crufts.

During the last couple of years  Karra has started to breed & show her own dogs which are registered under her own kennel name, Modarra.

Rishlyn & Modarra now work together as a mother & daughter team.

In recent years the Rishlyn Lhasa Apsos have been joined by the Coton de Tulear, a rare, small, companion breed originally from Madagascar.
My Cotons have done well in the show ring, gaining Top Coton, Top puppy, Best of Breed, Best Puppy in Breed & Reserve Best Dog at Crufts.
