Spring finally arrived and everything warmed up...summer is coming. I always enjoy the season turning and await the various bloomings spring offers. But the coming summer is full of color. And full of dog shows.
There were a couple Spring events. Louise earned a couple points toward her championship; she’s now just a few singles away. Most of the “exhibiting” has gone on in handling class. Q-Tip and Lucy have attended almost every week: refining their ring presence to help them show to their best in the up-coming summer shows. And it paid off already! Lucy took a third in a Puppy Group full of quality pups. And that's Miss Elizabeth Valovic, Lucy's co-breeder, smiling with the outcome of her efforts.
And across the seas, in Sweden, Lucy's sister Tessie continues to do her thing with her new owner, Anke Slevin of Nivels Tibetan Terriers. Their dad's, Sayme, owners sent a comparative photo of Tessie and Samye I love. TTs in action!
And nearer-by Mike McLoughlin has been busy with his Bee (Lukilu Little Song of Mine) at the dog shows. Here is the result of one of the events.
And the McLoughlins have a new bloom too, Vienna’s cousin, Cookie. Miss Sugar and Cuervo are the proud parents. Proud that they have delivered such a beauty!
And love receiving the news and photos from all the TT family friends and owners.
I hope you are well after this stressful week.
Our boy celebrated his first birthday last week and is just as delightful as ever! He got a few plantains in his food as a treat and got to make a trip to the dog park!
We just signed a lease in Brookline for next year! Will have to bring him for a visit this summer.

Warm regards and happy spring! Laura
KDee resting after her grooming.Last weekend we went to West Palm, FL entered 2 shows. The first day we won the puppies and showed at the end of the day in an all puppy show. In our group we came in 3rd. We came in behind a Dalmatian and a Standard Poodle who were about a year old, 1 point for the day. The next day for another point we were Best of Winners. We had many people asking about the line. Here are 2 pictures the day before the show just after grooming will be getting a pro pic for winners and will send that along when it arrives. Until then have a great day Debbie and clan.
I have been meaning to write you and tell you how wonderful Boomer is. He has more personality than most humans. He is enjoying the other dogs, walks on trails, chasing chickens (which is not so cool but rather funny), rides in the car and especially playing outside with his pals.
He is a very good eater, thus trains easily. I love him too much. Stacey R

Happy Valentine's Day from Panda Stephan!
Bay Colony Tibetan Terrier Club had their annual Specialty during the Topsfield Show weekend. There were good entries each day for the three AKC shows and an exceptional entry for the Specialty evening show. The Kiara TTs and their other families supported these events with many of our TTs represented. Sue Meluzin's Gabby (Zin-Pa's Gossip Girl) took a reserve winner's bitch at the first day's event and her Winnifred (Zin-Pa's Winnifred the Woebegone) took the reserve winner's bitch placement the next day and then at night, at the BCTTC Specialty and the following day, her Elvira (Zin-Pa's Mistress of the Dark) went reserve again to major points. Both Passion, CH Kiara All Fired Up, and her grand-dad Yogi, CH Kiara Harlem Night of Zin-Pa, were awarded "Selects" and earned Points toward their Grand-Championships. And it was an exceptional moment when I got to help Mike and Marie McLoughlin show in the brood bitch class: Sadie (CH Kiara Harlem Song) followed by her daughters, Rosie (CH Lukilu Everything's Coming UP Roses at Kiara) and Bee (Lukilu Little Song of Mine). It was wonderful seeing everyone and especially nice to see my nearest and dearest.
