Hurray for Bono

Yeah!!! Bono the Havanese took best of group tonight. He is just gorgeous and has the sweetest face. Owner handler who is a professional handler. She also breeds Havanese and Bono is her own breeding. Very exciting, cannot wait to watch best of show now.

We were posting threads at the same time, it was fun to see him win! The long haired dachshund really showed its butt off, & will be tough to beat but well see.

Here is a link to Bono's record. Bono - latierrahavanese. As I said in other threads, he is one of my Cassie's "cousins", from the La Tierra Havanese family!

We were on the edge of our seats when he got pulled into the final 8. But they never pick the Havanese and then they did!!! He is gorgeous and happy!!

So beautiful. Tonight he became the second best dog in the whole U.S.A. No small feat and well deserved. So happy for the breed, he made us crazy Hav people proud.

It was close. If he hadn't jumped over the carpet seams, and the Judge not been a Terrier guy, I think he would have won.

Bono is the best looking Havanese I've ever seen just beautiful.
He has the walk the look he has everything. I'll be following him
in the future. I think the Havanese has a winner in Bono. I may
be one sided here but Bono should have won, he's that good. I'm
not dismissing the winner but Bono was a leader in the breed and
I don't think the winner was the best in his breed yet he has won
many times. Sorry it depressed me that Bono didn't win, it would
have been a big one.

I noticed him jumping over the seams! It reminded me of Willow. We do a game where I stand at one end of a hall and have her run around toilet plunger at the other end and then back to me. There is a door threshold between a laminate floor and a vinyl floor and she'll always jump over the threshold on her way to me like it's a hurdle! So funny! I suppose it's not the thing to do a Westminster.

During Westminster I've been curious just how much it counts on how perfectly they run. I know the judges are looking at form and gait but every once in awhile I'll see a dog look at a dropped treat or try to smell something during the run. Does that really count against them? A few times I've seen handlers trip and fall too. How does that count? Another time I saw a dog poop just before it was going to be looked at by the judge. How would that affect the judging? That dog looked stressed so I'm pretty sure pooping is a big no no.
