Thank you for
stopping by to visit with us here at SIDDHARTHA. We hope
you will enjoy meeting our Royal Holy Terrors - Royal
because SIDDHARTHA was the name of the Prince, who became the
first Buddha, Holy because of their connections to the
Monks of Tibet, and Terrors Ė well your imagination can
take care of that.
We are a small kennel
and are committed to breeding for true type and quality.
Our mamas, papas, and their puppies are reared
in the house,
underfoot and into everything. They even have their
favourite television programs.
I have four sons myself, and they regularly complain that you
have to have four legs to get any attention in this house, but
we all know what boys are like, and their dad is just as bad,
but I can forgive them that, as they too love my four leggers,
and will lend a hand when the need arises, even share their tea
with them, when they think I am not looking, much to my delight,
but donít tell them I said that.
With regular visits from the children in our neighbourhood, and
nieces and nephews,
our little people are
great ambassadors. They love everyone, and accept and
enjoy the company of
dogs, budgies, and other small animals (yes even cats). We
do the best we can to give them a good start
and make them loving and happy family pets, and have had
many successes in the show ring as a welcome bonus.
Protecting the breed is extremely important to us,
and to ensure that we have genetically sound and healthy
puppies, our dogs are hip scored, and eye tested annually, and
all have DNA Profiles. They are also screened for PLL and
The Siddhartha inmates
are micro-chipped, and all puppies bred here, have been,
will continue to be,
micro-chipped before Kennel Club
and before they pack their bags
the diligent efforts of those breeders
who came before me, on
who lines I based my own pursuit, we had a very good start.
It is at this juncture I
must give special thanks to Mrs. Pat Tempest (Alilah), for
trusting me with her lines,
and for all her ongoing support and encouragement, and for
being my friend.
It should be well known that Tibetan Terriers are luck bringers,
and I really do believe this. I have also found that they can
bring good and true friends, and I am always happy to hear from
the people who have left my home with a puppy under their arm.
Some have become very close friends, no matter how many miles,
or even oceans separate us. Others might just pop the odd
photograph in the post, with maybe a few little comments, but
this thoughtfulness means so much to me, so my thanks to those
who give my little bundles a happy home, and an even warmer
thank you to those who keep in touch.
Now just a little
warning - be aware, as Fox Mulder would say, be very
Tibetan Terriers promptly take over your heart, your home,
and the car.
