Come join the fun!
I'm going to be there and would really encourage anyone interested in the breed to come. There really is something for everyone. Vendors who are there selling all sorts of good things for your Havanese, lots of seminars on the days before the shows, several different shows....a regional specialty on Thursday, a puppy sweepstakes (focusing on those dogs under 18 mo.) on Friday and the national specialty on Friday and Saturday. Also you can see some of our Havanese who excel in the performance sports of Rally and Obedience in competition there too. The Friday night auction and pizza party is always lots of fun and you will have a chance to win all sorts of items, from fairly small prizes all the way up to some awesome prizes like jewelry and week long stays at a condo in Hilton Head (that last one courtesy of our own Melissa Miller!). Saturday is a banquet with a cash bar where everyone has a great time catching up on all the events and where all sorts of awards are presented.
But the best part is just seeing all these wonderful Havanese in one location. It is a feast for the eyes! And meeting many of the folks you may only know from e-mails is a special treat too. It almost reminds me of a college dorm experience for a couple of days as the entire hotel is almost completely taken over by Havanese and their owners. Goodness knows what the occasional "normal" hotel guest must think....LOL.
Anyway, once you have gone to a specialty, you will understand the appeal and will want to come back. I never understood until I went to my first one, but now I never miss them.
Hope you'll join us. If you register in advance, you'll have a name badge waiting and will feel right at home!
