What about the dogs ?
When Eliane started to show and win, she was handling bitches and her first Champion was a bitch as well. What about the males ? Eliane’s first main stud dogs was Et'Chang-Blue de Tchin Kiang - born 1989 - by Chy-Nees out of a blue bitch from Berlaimont lines.
Et'Chang proved to be very precious for Eliane - he can be found in a lot of Lee-Dou des Thitounes pedigrees and because he was out of blue x blue mating, he was the foundation of Lee-Dou des Thitounes blue Chows.
From 1991, the stud team developed and Gai-Iang du Lee-Dou des Thitounes, a self red dog out of Elsa, was retained and mated to a couple of bitches. Witn Gai-iang, Eliane produced a very dark red colour that would be later in 2001 bred on a more regular basis with the arrival of Ch Rahnee Dhao's Azir at home.
In 1993, Iang Lee Huang, by Gai-Iang, arrived at home and joined the stud team.
The development of the kennel in the 1990's
Over the next few years, the kennel started to develop. Eliane concentrated on breeding puppies and improve her kennel. She established her own lines and hardly went to mate outside. Her lines were then based on Berlaimont - mainly Chy-Nees - but also on Happy Day, who can still be found via the Champion Only-Yu du Lee-Dou des Thitounes, her daughter. After breeding came the administration and Eliane became a Chow-Chow Club Français delegate in her area and she always shared her knowledge with people having a keen interest in the Breed. In 2002, she got the certificate of breeding hability.
In the turn of the century, other Champions followed : Ch Lee'Chen du Lee-Dou des Thitounes, blue bitch, Ch Puqi du Lee-Dou des Thitounes, black dog, Ch Only-Yu du Lee-Dou des Thitounes, Happy Day's daughter.
