Thanks Melissa for starting the Havanese Forum. No one had spent the time, effort, expense, etc. to do that, on this scale, prior to when this forum was created. Thank you.

Thanks for having the idea that this forum could be an open environment where new people could come seeking information about the havanese breed. There is so much knowledge here. Great idea!....THANKS!!

Thanks for spending countless hours reviewing and revising and revising and revising and updating expensive software so that the forum members could have the most user friendly experience possible...

Thanks for helping this forum grow to become a HUGE community.

Oh, and THANKS for considering and implementing a way for the forum to CONTINUE when the time came that you needed more of your own personal time to be spent on growing your know, the real life business that supports you, pays the bills, buys groceries, little stuff like that.

THANKS again...

Melissa, I thank you, and my Lola thanks you even more. She would be less healthy and happy had I never found this place.

Well of course I thank you too, Melissa! Without the Havanese Forum you created, I wouldn't know a fraction of what I know now. I wouldn't have made all the great friends I have now or have the confidence to voice my opinions on heartfelt passions of mine.

I also would have more free time as I wouldn't be on here, hooked, and posting over 10,200 posts!!! Not to mention all the money I've spent on attending National Specialties across the U.S.! Thanks a lot! LOL

Oh, and thank you VERY much for trusting me with the monthly Photo Challenges since that very first one way back in 2007. I hope to keep those going as they are a great excuse for us to see our Havs in a new and exciting light.

I would like to say thank you to Melissa for starting this forum long ago. It brought many good hearted people together that has really shown and made this forum shine the past few years.

We have come together to make a few quilts which has raised thousands for HRI over the years,came together for a calendar,had many members step up and foster with HRI,donate to causes and even financially help a hav or two in need.....but it really has come together this past year or so. We had Ryan head the calendar and it raised a fabulous amount for HCA recognised at the National,our own Laurie gave a speech,and Amanda was also recognised for her achievements with Dasher. All truly spectacular things and things that I am very proud of.Most all members here have given of themselves in one way or another and I am proud to call them all "friends".

I wish a forum member could of kept the forum going because this forum has really shined and came into it's own.
