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 Champion Kutani Soldier Soldier. 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, Norsk and Finnish Champion Shardlow Born to be Wild, is known as "Harley" to his friends. He is a Champion in Norway and Finland.

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).

A year later, in December 2001, "Tinkerbell" produced a litter to Kutani Reckless. 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".|
The other boy was Shardlow Amaretto (Almond) and the girls were Shardlow Twinkle Twinkle (Darcey) and Shardlow ??? (Misty).

In March 2002 we bred our first, and last(!), litter of Irish Wolfhounds. Nutstown Celtic Flame for Shardlow "Enya" was mated to Champion Fearnhead Apollo at Baronglen - "Callum". The puppies were named Shardlow Celtic Pure Genius (Guinness), Shardlow Celtic Legend (Tyler), Shardlow Starlight Express thru Hazianne (Star), Shardlow Kisses the Blarney (Aine) and our own Shardlow Celtic Ice on Fire ("Minnie"). Some of this litter are being shown. Photos of this litter can be viewed at firstname.lastname@example.org
November 2002 saw our imported bitch Panaphia's Midnight Flame for Shardlow give birth to six puppies, five blacks and one grey. Three of these remain at Shardlow.
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 Lily and Tigger. Meanwhile, Smartie was busy with her own litter of five pups.
