Who's going to Denver?

Have lots of forum members made their plans to go to Denver next month?

I'm trying to decide if I should make the trip to Denver or not and was hoping to hear from some others that have been to a Specialty before. If I go, I will be going alone, and I will have to fly. I'm not a breeder but love the breed and of course am always anxious to learn more about them.

Would going to this show be a good idea for me? Is there lots for someone new to the breed to learn, or would it all be over my head? Any opinions would be appreciated! I know I need to decide in the next few days.
If you'd like, feel free to email me at [email protected]
Thanks!

Beverly

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!

I'm definitely going. There are a lot of people to see, seminars to attend and hundreds of dogs to meet.

By the way, for any of you thinking of going, all seminars and dinners must be received (and paid) by August 1st, so don't wait until the end of July to complete it. The link to all of them is here: http://havanese.org/2007%20HCA%20Nat...ty/07index.htm

We will be there!
Myself, my daughter Brooklyn and my Mom are all going~
You will really enjoy yourself, I have gone by myself for the past 2 years, and my mom and daughter got tired of hearing about how enjoyable it was, so they decided to come along this year.
NOTHING could beat spending the weekend with a couple hundred Havanese!

Oh no the pressure.... now I must find the perfect pair of shoes...
Who is the judge do you we know? I must see if I can pick up on the energy in the universe of what shoes the judge would like..

Kimberly and Cherie stated much better than I did, all the great reasons to go. But I still have Denver Hotties in my top 5.

LOLOL Diane....you know Melissa way too well! I'm betting on the Sex in the City signed Manolo stillettos myself (although she had better be careful in the ring with those!). You've never had fun until you've shoe shopped with Melissa in Manhattan While I'm always looking for a nice pair of comfortable shoes by the second day of Westminster, Melissa is still finding those sexy shoes!
