Welcome to our gallery of dogs which have graced life at Shardlow.

Bred by Florence Fahey and Fr Joe Shire in Limerick, Fanta had a famous sire in Ch/Ir Ch Saxonsprings Tradition.
In April 2000 she started her show career with Allan handling her and they had great fun and lots of rosettes.
Having been smitten with Disney we just had to have a second Lhasa and approached Madeleine Lewis who agreed to let us have a puppy. We had thought it unlikely to find another Lhasa with such a big character as Disney had, but Tinker is just as barmy.
This little gold "tomboy" grew up to be a beautiful girl.
At the 1998 shows she performed very well, qualifying for Crufts on several occasions and with many Open show BPIB, BOB and group placings to her credit. She was entered for Crufts 1999 but her coat was not in top condition so she did not appear there. She spent 1999 and 2000 window shopping for a new party dress but never found anything that she liked.
In the meantime she had her wish and was a mother to three healthy bitch puppies born in 2000 (sire Shardlow Hakuna Matata) and 3 bitch /two dog puppies born December 2001, (sire Ch Kutani Reckless).

Taylor spent a few months with us being shown in UK. He was born in Ireland, bred by Florence Fahey and Fr Joe Shire. We won a RCC with Taylor at the LAC CHampionship show.
We bred our first litter of Lhasa Apso puppies in December 1998,
from our foundation bitch Bentarnsa Ebony'N Ivory at Shardlow (Imp)(IKC), otherwise
known as "Disney". She was mated to Kutani
Soldier Soldier who later became a champion. From this litter we kept a male, Shardlow Hakuna Matata whose
pet name is "Buzz". Also in the litter were Shardlow
Tickle the Ivories (Yetti), Mango, and Bessie.
Our second litter was born in June 2000, once again to "Disney" and Champion Kutani Soldier Soldier. The male that we would have kept went to
our friend Kurt Espeland in Norway. This boy, Shardlow
Born to be Wild, is known as "Harley" to his friends.
He is a Champion in many countries.
Snoopy (Shardlow Fly Without Wings) is shown on the left with his new family on arrival at his new home. Sadly Snoopy's new Mum, Rita, died in 2003 but we soon managed to find him the right new home with Meg.
Margaret Springett of the Pawprints affix shows a dog from this litter - Shardlow Stand and Deliver to Pawprints, affectionately known as Turpin. These photos show Turpin as a baby (right), an adolescent (below left) and as an adult (below right).
The only bitch in this litter was Shardlow Candle in the Wind (Mollie).
Our third litter came from "Tinkerbell"
- Deelyane Dish of the Day at Shardlow, mated to our own Shardlow Hakuna
Matata. From this litter, born in December 2000 we kept Shardlow Raindrops on
Roses - "Smartie". Also in this litter was Shardlow
Utterly Butterly (Daisy) and Shardlow Fortune Cookie (Pippin).
This is Daisy at nine weeks old.
and Pippin at nine weeks old.
A year later, in December 2001, "Tinkerbell" produced a litter to Kutani Reckless, who became a champion in 2003. In this litter there were two boys and three girls.
We initially kept a boy and a girl: Shardlow Sultan of Swing and Shardlow Wind in the Willow respectively. For their sins they are known as "Woody" and "Willow". Woody now lives with owner Julie Lee.
The other boy was Shardlow Amaretto (Almond) and the girls were
Shardlow Twinkle Twinkle (Darcey) and Shardlow Simply Tiggerific (Misty).
Darcey is pictured here after her first bath, ready to go to her new home. Darcey is a well-known character in the pet shop that her people own.
Misty pictured in 2006, owned by Mark Trimmer.
November 2002 our imported bitch Panaphia's Midnight Flame for
Shardlow gave birth to six puppies, five blacks and one grey. The sire was Champion
Avonbourne All Spice. Two of these remain at Shardlow - Shardlow Party Popper
and Shardlow Ragtaggle Gypsy.
Diesel with owner Ann Spicer
January 2003, and Disney had a litter but was unfortunately
taken very ill, the pups needing hand-rearing. Lou Hayward came to our rescue
and raised Shardlow Tiger Lily (Lily) and Shardlow Tiggerific (Tigger). Meanwhile,
Smartie (Shardlow Raindrops on Roses) was busy with her own litter of five pups, but she happily adopted Lily & Tigger as her own when they returned to us aged 3 weeks.
