CH Shay-Ri Gentle Ben v.d. Zegse Heide x Dikyi

Rak-Pa distinguished himself with more than a dozen
Best in Show Puppy Awards. He is the offspring of Ch. Shay-Ri Gentle
Ben v.d. Zegse Heide and Dikyi Ni A Soechavati and is the sire
of Ch. Himalaya's Dred-Mo, grandsire of Ch. Himalaya's Lokeshvara
and great grandsire of Ch. Himalaya's Taj Mahal. Rak-Pa was our
first Dutch import and we thank the Reusens of Soechavati Tibetan
Mastiffs for this glorious boy.

Iwan x CH Azziz Ni A Soechavati
It's not often that one dog combines such a positive
impact on a breeding program as well as the show ring but Frankie
is that unforgettable girl. She is the mother, grandmother and
great-grandmother to numerous champions. She shone in the show
ring and is the first dog who gave us a Best in Show win. Our stunning
Frankie continues to be a star as a veteran dog as we celebrated
her 13th birthday in 2004.

v.d. Zegse Heide
The first time I saw this picture of Ben, I knew that
I would have to meet him. His owner Karen Pickel was gracious enough
to let Ben become a part of my life and he changed everything.
Just a gorgeous dog who was the proper protector and grandest playmate.
His children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren continue on
with his tradition of beauty, strength and soundness.

Himalaya's Emir Pasha
CH Shay-Ri Gentle Ben v.d. Zegse Heide x CH
Kona Ni A Soechavati
Every now and then a breeder is able to produce a
dog that embodies all of the best characteristics of the breed.
Pasha is such a special dog. Not only did he win Best of Breed
at the National Specialty when he was little more than a puppy,
he went on to be Best of Breed at the World Dog Show in Mexico
City. Pasha has contributed to our breeding program and is now
a great grandsire. Just an amazing boy who stole my heart as a
puppy. Brave and fearless but still able to entertain his friends
with his penchant for toys and games. He is truly one of a kind.

Ten of Ho-Shen
Our darling "Rosie" is a multi-champion in our hearts
as well as the show ring. She is in retirement now, but produced
some of our most beautiful Himalaya puppies when she was being
bred. Her dark tan coloring and her amazing speed on her wild runs
through the meadow always draw attention. Her children are Champions
in many countries and she is truly a regal lady.
Vashti Himalaya Ni A Soechavati
CH Andor v. Altnaharra x CH Soechavati
Esthri v. Gangjong
This dramatic girl was a gift from my dear friends
at Soechavati Tibetan Mastiffs in The Netherlands. She was a clown
and a charmer and stole hearts everywhere. Her children have gone
on to auspicious show careers and each has her essential sweetness.
Vashti was Best of Breed at the World Dog Show in Helsinki when
she was scarcely old enough to be shown with the adults. Even more
remarkable is that her brother was Best Junior Puppy and her half
brother was Best of Opposite Sex. I give all the credit to the
Reusens of Soechavati for producing such consistent and excellent
TM's over the years and for their willingness to share their best
with other breeders.

Himalaya Ni A Soechavati
Norbu is a Tibetan word for a "wish fullfilling jewel".
This was an easy choice as a call name for our darling boy. Not
only is he a handsome and sound male, but his children are just
as great. He is the OFA excellent great-grandson of Shay-Ri Gentle
Ben v.d. Zegse Heide. With a gentle and tolerant nature, he is
still ready to guard us when the moment arrives.
