Panda was a star from the his very first show at 3.5 months
coming RU Best Male Baby Puppy in Specialty Show.
Two weeks later in 2 shows in Switzerland, he was Best
Baby Puppy on both days and while we only stayed for Best
in Show on the Saturday, due to the long drive home, he
was the youngest in the line up but was Best Baby Puppy
in Show 3!
"From Estonia to Italy to Switzerland
to France to Sydney
Australia and then Tasmania!"

Panda’s show name is ‘Heart’ because
he is the heart of our kennel Shanti Soul and always in
Panda is truly massive. We had names for ‘our
next boy’ – we did not know this was going
to be this boy! We fell in love with Cambu and Bodhicita
but over the next week changed our minds from definitely
getting one puppy to TWO and from Chenporewa, not a girl
but a BOY!
His mum and dad both reminded us of huge Panda Bears as
they are both so strong in the rear with such a long, all
over coat. Hence the name ‘Panda’ was for us!!
Born: 7th January 2008
Temperament: The word which
describes Panda best is ‘Sweet’ He is our Sweet
Panda Boy If Panda went to school he would be the Class
Best Friend: Goldie
Land Speed: Surprisingly fast
and dare I say it… ‘streamlined’?
Hobbies: Eating, Playing and
being Funny!! Most Loved Pastime: Cuddles with mum and
dad and playing with Goldie now she is not bigger than
him and can’t push him over so much!
Favourite Food: Cooked chicken
with a sprinkle of garlic but he just LOVES his food!
Biggest Crime So Far: Taking
someone else’s paws – he has the fattest paws
I have ever seen on a TM – we think he might
be a Black Saint Bernard in disguise!
Our Favourite Panda Bad Habit!: Following
me when I go upstairs to do house work or for a shower.
Just seems to want to be with me always (well when he isn’t playing with Goldie or the
other friends who visit). But I would have to say our FAVOURITE
Panda ‘bad habit’ would be him coming over,
looking lovingly up at us, resting his
head on our knee before LAUNCHING himself onto our lap!
Somehow we never thought we’d have to explain to
a Tibetan Mastiff that he is not a light little lap dog,
but there you go!!
Our Favourite Thing To Do With Him: His
stares! He makes you fall in love with him due to his long,
close up stares. He looks deep into your eyes and shares
a moment with those he loves. We also love that
Panda is so casual about things and is so comfortable in
his own fur. He just loves the life he has been given and
that makes us feel great!
Most Impressive Skill: Weeing
(in front of a growing crowd) for 2.5 minutes. Yep, 150
FULL ‘one elephant, two elephants…150 elephants’ seconds!
He went on for so long we couldn’t believe it and
started laughing after about a minute, but he would not
be swayed, he just kept going, and going… and going!
At less than 4 months we did not think his bladder could
possibly hold this much!!
Damage So Far: Scratches to
back door and bites taken out of door step in RENTAL HOUSE!!!!!!!
Might as well give them our wallet!
Wants to Be When Grows Up: Gigilo!
No, Panda I think is more of a family man, two kids and
the wife! When he loves he loves completely. He has no
burning ambition but if he HAD to work most probably his ‘day
job’ would be either a stunt man! You should just
see the tumbles and forward rolls he comes up with when
he is playing with Bear and Goldie! Another option would
be in slap-stick comedy – he makes us laugh by this
antics and his funny his body language, with his big fat
paws and his clown feet! Plus he just loves to make people
