Showsight Presents The Lhasa Apso

A Breed Survey: LHASA APSOS


DON L. HANSON I’ve recently relocated to Scottsdale, Arizona from Anacortes, Washington. I retired from 38 years in education, mostly educational administration. Family, travel- ing and being an ardent soccer fan occu- pies my time outside of dogs. I’ve been in the sport for 40 years; my base breed is the Lhasa Apso, but I have also campaigned Schipperkes, Italian Greyhounds and Stan- dard Poodles. I’ve been a judge for 2 years. I live in Mancos, Colorado, a rural small town in southwest Colorado. Having recently retired from owning a Veterinary practice, I’m enjoying more time with the dogs and horses. I’ve been in the dog world for 46 years, showing for 42 of those years. I was registered to judge 12 years ago. CAROLYN HERBEL I reside in Oklahoma. Outside of dogs, I do very little, because as a retiree I am indulging myself mostly in many dog-related activities. I’ve been in the dog world since buy- ing our first AKC registered dog in 1956. My first experience showing dogs was when I entered her in obedience in 1959 (St. Joseph KC). My involvement in Lhasa Apsos started in 1965 and resulted in over 125 homebred champions. I’ve been judging since 1983—more than 30 years. BOBBIE J. WOOD BARBARA SCHWARTZ

I live in Portland, Oregon where for 21 years I owned and operated a chil- dren’s bookstore. I’ve been retired for 20 years or so and keep busy caring for large perennial and vegetable gardens, read- ing, piano lessons, attending the theatre and working for my parent club (ALAC), my all-breed club (Dog Fanciers Associa- tion of Oregon) and the Oregon Dog Judg-

es organization. My husband Larry and I have been involved with Lhasas for 45 years. We enjoyed breeding on a very small scale and we enjoyed showing the dogs we’ve bred. We’ve bred an all-breed BIS winner, a National Specialty BOB win- ner, Grand Futurity and National Sweepstakes winners and we are ROM breeders. I keep involved in the dog world by judging and studying about other breeds and currently judge 12 Non-Sporting breeds and 5 Toy breeds. BEVERLY A. DRAKE

I live in Glen Arm, Maryland on 11 acres. In addition to my love of dogs, I try to find time for a Red Hat Group that meets once a month. I also love to play golf and travel. I have marshaled at sev- eral PGA and LPGAs. I have had dogs my entire life. When my husband and I were married, we started out with German Shepherds. It wasn't until 1971 that we

became enamored with the Lhasa Apso. During that time, I started breeding and showing the Lhasa. It wasn't long before the desire to judge became my focus. DON EVANS I live in Huntingtown, Maryland, a remote DC suburb. I am a managing securities attorney with the US Securities and Exchange Commission. I began show- ing Lhasas in 1973 (43 years). I’ve also shown English Cocker Spaniels, Pointers, Papillons, Toy Fox Terriers, Whippets, Beagles and Greyhounds. I began judging in 1992 and currently judge the Sporting and Terrier groups as well as BIS.

I live in Cranford, New Jersey. Now that I am retired I must say that I am pretty much “in” dogs more than when I was working. However, my profession was as a sound effects artist so I love the- atre, movies and TV. I got my first Lhasa Apso in 1968, given to me by a good friend. I bred her to a Champion owned by a friend who showed and she encour- aged me to show. So I have been showing
