Just saw this on Bydand website...

And wondering what others think. Seems like a big shift for this breeder. Elyse

WHAT in the world?? sounds like they are making "Hava-poos" right?? why are they doing this and calling them "island mini-doodles"" wow. I read through all of the 'reasoning and it still doesn't make sense.

And they're charging more for a hybrid than what I paid for Brody.

Yes, I heard about this through the Virginia grapevine the other. I'm a little shocked, since they used to be pretty heavily involved with the Havanese Club of America and then broke off to the Silk thing

Why is Diane Klumb fair game for open criticism as a breeder? Was it because she was part of the group with Dr. JoAnn Baldwin who broke away from the HCA? As objective as I was when researching the breed of Havanese, it is difficult to argue that a beagle looks like a beagle. Yet, Havanese in the ring look different.

I had also heard. I was astounded. She certainly isn't doing anything to help the perception of Silks by starting to breed hybrids.

What I really don't get is that she says her reason for crossing her dogs with poodles is that the gene pool for Silks is too small... But if that is the case, WHY would they close the stud book to Havanese, especially since there are many other Havanese with the same phenotype as the Silks?

It's a shame.

There are actually lots of breeds that have more than one type. Golden Retrievers are just one example, where there is the "show ring" type and the "working" type. Both fit the breed standard, but the working type is not prefered by judges. (at least at this time)

I think you will find that ANYONE who breeds hybrid dogs is going to get a lot of flack from most people seriously involved in purebred dogs. I DON'T think it has anything to do with who she is.
