New Yorker magazine

There is an article about dogs in the New Yorker, 1 August 2011 issue, and the author of the article has a Havanese (Butterscotch). Anyone read that article? He also mentioned Havanese forum, but I don't know whether it is this forum he is referring to.

We had a forum member who had a Hav named Butterscotch. I am sure the forum member was female but lived in New York. Haven't seen her post in awhile. Do you suppose it is the same Butterscotch?

The author's daughter, Olivia, is the one who got her parents to get her Butterscotch. I need to look up the name of the author in the magazine. Apparently, Olivia got them to get Butterscotch from a Lexington pet store.

It's the same person as the Butterscotch on this forum and the article mentions the forum as " a worldwide chat board composed mostly of older women who call themselves the small dogs' 'mommies', and share a tone of slightly addled coziness...". Sounds like us! It's a very nice article which captures the antics and personality of the Havanese. The author's daughter, Olivia, is the member of our forum and she sounds like a wonderful, smart, responsible Havanese mommy who very much loves her dog.

Last night I was watching "Selling New York" and the real estate agent and the client both had Havies.
