Havanese Breed Magazine Issue #12
In the last few days it has snowed, rained, hailed and gone from a few degrees below freezing to almost 10 degrees above. It is bad enough to walk our dogs in the muck without having to deal with the sand and salt the city puts down to ensure we don’t fall. I know we wash our dog’s pads off as soon as we get back in the house to remove this stuff before it hurts them. But when our backyard is a dangerous thin sheet of ice which will be replaced tomorrow with fence to fence mud, I take umbrage. When you have more than a few dogs in full length coats that not only love to play in the worst weather these parts have to offer, but have been known to stand outside in pouring rain, turn their heads up to the sky and yell BRING IT ON you will probably understand when I say I wish it would get below freezing and stay there for a while. This is the warmest February I can remember. At this point I wouldn’t mind a bit of snow. Our dogs love to play in snow too which isn’t bad for a breed that originated in Cuba.
As usual we have articles from a half a dozen countries sharing our love for this breed. It sheds a new light on a subject when an article about dancing with our dogs comes to us from South Africa or an article on her opinion on how the Havanese should really look is written by a woman from Cuba that was there from the outset. We always have our humorous columns written by people that sometimes even pose as the dogs they love. And we have some serious health related articles. Everything is meant to educate and inform you on a wide range of subjects that should be of interest to all. Which reminds me, if you want me to cover a subject that you have not previously seen in this magazine please do not hesitate to say so. Email me directly by clicking on this link: email the editor.
I will respond to anything you care to share with me.
