      Maria grew up in Bogota, Columbia near her parents coffee plantation, Santa Inez.
  Memories of that beautiful country live on in the name of her Lhasa Kennel in Hempstead, TX.
           Maria bought all of her foundation dogs from Sandy Fluhart, Odie Lhasas.

        Solid Gold SunDancer
   A chicken-based dog food is finally here.

    Several years ago, Solid Gold decided to develop a chicken-based dog food. Then,
came the bird/avian flu and chickens were contaminated and chicken-based dog
foods were pulled off the market. Solid Gold waited. Then, in 2009-2010 the chick-
en/egg salmonella poisoning caused many chicken-based dog foods to be recalled.
    Now, chickens have been given a clean bill of health, so Solid Gold introduced
SUNDANCER. This unique dog food is an advance of all other chicken-based dog
foods on the market. Peas are a good source of protein, but caused gas in many dogs.
However, we researched and found that if tapioca and the grain quinoa were mixed
with peas, gas doesn’t form. So we used these unique ingredients.
   Tear stains in some dogs are problems. It is usually an allergy to some ingredients
in the dog’s food. However, we found Chia seed/ AKA Salba, neutralizes this problem. People may
know Chia seed as Chia Pets, that clay head that sprouts “hair” when water is added. But Chia is much more than
a novelty Chia has been called the Ancient Grain of the Future. Aztecs and Mayans mixed the seeds with water to
form a gel. It was taken internally not only as a cleanser to remove irritants in the intestinal tract, but was used for
endurance. It was the only food used by ancient warriors and athletes during an activity. When the gel was applied
topically to wounds or skin irritations, the skin healed rapidly. We also put Chia for internal healing in our Sundancer
dog food.
   The most fascinating ingredient in our SunDancer is curcumin, the root from the turmeric plant. It has a 4,000 year
old history for curing a variety of health problems in India. Curcumin is known worldwide as the “Indian Solid Gold”.
That’s a nice déjà vu expression. Perhaps, curcumin is most well-known for its use in cancer. The Indians say that
there are 33 channels of cancer, and curcumin address all of them. The University of Maryland Medical Center found
that curcumin lowered bad cholesterol to reduce the cause of stroke. It also reduced pressure on the eye. Curcumin
gives mustard the yellow color and the spice flavor. See
Dr. David H Frig, MBA found turmeric/curcumin inhibited amyloid plaque from forming in the brain which contrib-
uted to Alzheimer’s disease.
   In 1958, the U.S. Congress wanted to fund a study for the elimination of cancer using turmeric/curcumin. But the
big pharmaceutical companies put forth such a large lobby, that it was stopped. They said such a study would inter-
fere with the revenue from their cancer drugs. One pharmaceutical person said that if this curcumin were so effective,
they would synthesize it and make it into a prescription drug.
   In 1971, President Nixon agreed to begin a new curcumin/cancer study. But the Watergate problem stopped that.
   Look for our shiny purple bags of Solid Gold SunDancer dog food. We also use fish to support the DNA of Oriental
dogs, Arctic dogs and dogs originally from England, Scotland, Ireland, and all water dogs (such as labs, poodles, ter-
riers, retrievers, and sporting dogs). If you don’t add fish to these dog’s diet, they may develop allergies in the lower
legs and chew or lick their feet.
   Look for the two dancing dogs on the bag of our hermetically, vacuum sealed bags for freshness. Do not pour the
food out into another container. Open the bag, scoop out what you need and close with bag clips or clothes pins. The
act of pouring exposes the food to air. We use no chemical preservatives in our fresh Solid Gold dog foods.

                                                                      A Funny Story
                                        Sissy, the owner of Solid Gold, was recently at a dog show and it was quite
                                    warm. Someone commented that the news said that the planet, Saturn, with its
                                    rings, was heating up the galaxy. A near-by 10 year old girl standing close by said
                                    she knew what Saturn looked like. She said “that’s the planet with the hula hoops”.

ALAC is a club that is governed by its Constitution and Bylaws. The
Board of Directors is elected by the membership and their responsibil-

is accomplished through telephone conference meetings which are
conducted five times a year and one meeting held in conjunction with             Meet The Breeds - This board has committed to supporting AKC’s

reach out to members via ALAC online and will continue to utilize this
method of communication to publicize both past and future activities.
We recognize the need to better communicate with the members – and
members need to attempt to voice thoughts directly to appropriate
committee chair persons or to a board member. That’s the method that
works the best, and I encourage all of you to use it.

 Ch. Wyndcatch New Kid in Town x Ch. Lasacas Jeda Midsummer Morning

  Thank you, Mr Shoreman, for recognising Boston’s
      classical Apso type, structure, movement
             and style without exageration,
           qualities we feel are hard to find
                   in the breed today.

                   A special thanks to
           Janet Lacasse, Victoria Watterson,
                Goldy and Dea Andrews
           for which all this was made possible.

It is with a heavy heart that I say goodbye to one of my “heart” dogs, Ch MLS Jedi
Prairie Cowboy. Known as Butch (two boys in the litter and they just acted like
Butch and Sundance from the time they started crawling around!), he was my first
homebred champion. His spirit lives on in ND and through his get, Lindy and Twist.

          Ch. Lionhart Marco Polo
                 Marco Polo has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
From his birth he was the intrepid explorer, cruising the borders of the whelping box
          while his littermates were warm and cozy with mom, Krystal.
         Marco finished easily and quickly but the ring was not his love.
 He excelled rather in his affinity for companionship, becoming the faithful devotee
   to my mother, now 94. Marco was an admired and accomplished visitor at
 Carriage Hill Nursing Home where he was always happy to visit any resident,
                               not just his own people.
         Visitors to the house were greeted in a quiet but friendly manner,
                       petting was welcomed but not demanded

   This wonderful Lhasa was all one could hope for in a first homebred champion.
      He has passed his charms to children Miss Piggy and Hugh Bear,
    and his granddaughters LeeAnn and Red and on into further generations.
    We know he is exploring over the Rainbow Bridge until his people arrive.
                            We love you, puppy!
