Thanks everyone for your kind words...they really everything I had hoped for. As for homes Pongo belongs to the owner of the sire and I have more potential homes than puppies. The person who evaluated them at 8 weeks pleasantly surprised us when she rated them all as good show prospects. The boys she said were stronger than the girls in rating but overall she felt this is a very good litter. She is a person whom I knew of but had never officially met who is a well known, respected breeder and professional handler who didn't ask me any information about the pups before she looked at them. Afterwards she inquired about the bloodlines and what I had hoped to achieve with the breeding. My goal was always in hope of a show puppy or two for myself and I had searched for a sire that would compliment my girl along with my girls breeder, my girl was a co-own with her.
For anyone who doesn't know my breeder passed away early this year and I miss her knowledge, mentorship and friendship (I had known her for 20+ years), it was a big loss. She was very well known to the Havanese community and although a small scale breeder she produced a good number of top winning dogs. I think/hope she would have been pleased with these pups.
I haven't really decided for sure yet but I think I am leaning towards waiting a while before I part with any of them for a while and I'm looking at the show schedule for 2013. I have one other person I want to evaluate them who was unable to when they were 8 weeks as she has a litter also and we have a parvo problem in the area and everyone is being careful. A second opinion is what I'd like even if it's a tad late. Always is on my mind the "beware of breeders who claim their entire litters are show quality". I will probably keep the girls and that leaves Darth. I know I don't think I want an intact male living with his mom and sisters in the same house although others manage it.
I'll put off concerning myself about that for now as they're just babies and the second opinion could help a lot.
