The Havanese Breed Magazine Issue #9

The ninth issue of The Havanese Breed Magazine is now available for downloading. In this issue we have our usual eclectic contributions as well as many dog spots to share. We also have coverage of the World Dog Show from Paris, France, an interview with a Canadian Judge from a dog show in Germany, the hair-raising journey of a contributor in New Zealand before, during and after their recent earthquake, and one heck of a group photo from a Havanese picnic in Canada. It doesn’t get any better than 50-60 Havanese running around having a great time together.
If I were to separate the types of stories in this issue into three categories they would break down like this:

The Perverse Paradoxical Nature of the World by Bill Burns
The Dog Next Door - Joan Weston
Thera-Petey Dog – Claire Paulson
Capturing Action - Steven Ng
Time is a Thief - Teddy Green

Humor and Real Life Experiences
Dog Doc and Patient – by Lyndall’s dog, Saki Fry
Tomorrow, Tomorrow, I’ll Love You Tomorrow - CJ Johnson
Going Crackers - Lyn McLean
I’m Going to Melt - Suzanne McKay
A Day in the Life - Suzie Kalman
Call me Fergie. Please! – Tom Wettlauffer

The Dog Fancy
A Judge’s View, An Interview with Alan Bennett by Sandy Obrist
The Rainbow Legacy, Naming of the Crew - Fredith Holt
Let’s Part with the Parting - Arlene Etzig
Bonjour Paris- Wendy Allenby
Letters from Cuba, Personal Memories VIII: - Dorothy Goodale Part. 2 - Zoila Portuondo Guerra

As always our Readers have shared many random photographs with us and we’ve contributed a few of our own. We were happy to make an issue of the magazine available in the welcome bags of the US National Specialty a few weeks ago and the Canadian National Specialty in a few weeks. I’m told many attendees at the US show still did not know that our magazine existed. For those of you that do, and enjoy what you read, please help spread the word.
Thank you

The Havanese Breed Magazine Issue #10

The Havanese Breed Magazine, issue #10, is now available, front cover attached. Subscribers can download it now at The Page Flipping version is also available for PC’s only. You will be able to view it as a simple yet elegant PDF, or choose to see it in a more enhanced “digital magazine” format. If you go to the Table of Contents and select an article it will jump directly to that article. The same applies for all email addresses and websites. All links are live. The PDF format may be preferred with slower internet connections as it is smaller in size. The digital format will permit you to “flip” the pages rather than scrolling through them. With either format you can view the issue, print pages, or download the entire document to your computer as a PDF. You can zoom into each and every image and enhance your reading experience. I personally love reading the magazine on my iPad2 for exactly that quality, the ability to zoom into anything for a really good look.
This issue is 62 pages including an in-depth coverage of the 2011 Canadian National Specialty in pictorial format as well as an interview with the Judge, Candace Mogavero who should be familiar to many of you. In addition to those photos contributed by Steven Ng in his five page pictorial, my wife, Darlah, took over 8,000 photographs during the course of the Canadian National Specialty. This is the usual consequence of using a digital camera and her not wanting to miss anything. She’s whittled them down but there are still a great many excellent photos. To see them please select this link: 2011/ Darlah also took photos of the Sweepstakes held just before the national specialty. Those photos are located here:
We have our continuing historically relevant contributions from Zoila Portuondo Guerra from Cuba, our usual training and informative articles from Teddy Green, Joan Weston and Claire Paulson which are relevant no matter which breed of dog you own. This issue we have stories from South Africa, New Zealand, England and Scotland as well as Canada and the USA. Bill Burns compares his own show experiences with Golden Retrievers and Havanese and how they differ and why. Arlene Etzig has something to say about the natural part on our Havanese. Lyndall Fry (Saki), Tom Wettlaufer, Suzi Kalman share humorous stories about the dogs with who they share their lives and Suzanne McKay tells us about her first Havanese. Marissa Johnson shares her experience at the recent 2011 US National Specialty from her unique perspective and we have included the new AKC Havanese Breed Standard. And finally, we hope to expand the magazine to include information about other breeds so that we better understand our own. This issue includes an article about Chinese Crested contributed by Hélène Bélanger.
For those of you that have not yet subscribed to our electronic Havanese Breed magazine, we are now well into our second year and we’d love to have you join us.
To all of you, enjoy the read and please don’t hesitate to share thoughts, suggestions, opinions and any constructive criticism. We look forward to hearing from you.
Best regards to everyone
