Talking Moving Forward, Havanese Future

I think it is time to start a new thread about moving forward from the break off of the HCA,the HSDAA.Lots of people would like to help if we knew what to do or what could be done to help preserve our breed.......the havanese.No argument here,please...just positive/forward thinking.
Thank you!

Julie, I agree 1000%. I said the same thing on the other thread. We really need to stop arguing the point and do something proactive about it. We need guidance from the breeders/showers. As companion dog people, do we even have a voice with the AKC or HCA. Where do we start?????

Now we just need some breeders/show people to give us some direction...
maybe this should be posted at the tail end of the other thread........

I would like to know if there is a way we could deter the HS people from stealing away the name(havana silk) and heritage(true Cuban)from the havanese.Or if perhaps this isn't a big deal to show breeders?It seems to bother us "pet homes" alot.The other issue is the "trashing" of the havanese breed on their website.Can anything be done?Should we be concerned?Let it go?

I agree also, there has to be something we can do. It really made me sad the HEART will be no longer, I hope someone forms another foundation geared towards the health testing of our Havs.

Melissa is there anyway this thread can be sent out to get the attention of all the HAVANESE breeders on this forum? Maybe they can give us a better idea of were our support is needed the most.

I think what has gotten me most annoyed thru this whole thing is the fact that they say they have a different breed, but then say it is just a "typey" thing. Then, if it is a different breed, why take that name, which every piece of literature says is the original name of the Havanese? Also, I haven't seen any other dog sites where one breed talks negatively about another.

I think the HCA needs an overhaul and some new thinking. Maybe we can help them with our ideas, especially as pet owners.

Julie,
The HCA and most members & non-members are doing just that, making sure that the breed, club and Havanese owners won't be harmed anymore, now or in the future.

Like many of you, what the HSD has put on their web site and said publically and privately in emails, is insulting at best. I personally take offense to several comments as I ONLY breed to IMPROVE. So much of what has been claimed by the HSDAA is not factual.

If "they" want to start their own breed, so be it, but don't make claims that the very breed they are coming from is less, worse, or not purebred.

So, now what?
1. Love your HAVANESE
2. Spread the word that the Havanese breed is the ONLY breed from Cuba and that it is one of the healthiest breeds around.
3. Attend the HCA National and show your support for the breed.
4. Donate items for the HCA National Specialty Auction
5. Join the HCA.
6. Allow the HCA Board of Director's to deal with AKC.
7. Educate your friends that are thinking of buying a Havanese. Let them know that most exhibitor's of Havanese are good breeder's trying to improve the breed and NOT breeding to create dogs with CD!

Most of all though, enjoy this awesome breed!

Kathy--You make it sound so simple. We can do that.

I have tried to do a search on the splits or changes that have occured in other breeds, but have found very little info. Does anybody have some of that information. I think if we understand what has happened in the past, we can gain more understanding of how to move forward.

Can pet owners join the HCA? I thought even breeders were having a tough time joining. Maybe that has changed with the split?

I guess we should join our local Capital Havanese Club first, huh?? :-)
