It is by a mere coincidence that I came across the Lhasa Apso.
I met Mademoiselle Violette DUPONT, many years ago, and was fascinated by her personnality and the beauty of her dogs. I did not realize, then, that I was entering a world totally unkown to me, the world of " dog fanciers".
Between the Lhasa Apso and me , a pact was concluded which is still in force today after many long years.
Through Mademoiselle DUPONT, I soon had the priviledge of meeting Hon. Mrs BAILEY and Lady Freda VALENTINE who had been at the origine of the official registration of the breed in England. My relationship with them allowed me to learn a lot about Lhasa Apsos.
I am not a breeder, I only had two litters which I kept entirely being absolutely unable to see one of my puppies going away.
I am an Expert Confirmateur of the breed in France, my love for these dogs has led me to collect some documents, writings and photographes of some interest. Having known the breed for more than thirty five years, I am sad to see that it more and more, deviates from its original type.
Too big, too strong, too heavy, too much fur, too much of everything !
