In this issue …
Barking up the right tree is the first article from Gillian Ridgeway. It won’t be the last. She is a wonderful instructor and trainer. Standard House Training Advice is Bill Burns taking us through his tips and tricks for your puppy. And Now for Something Completely Different is Steven Ng once again providing an excellent tutorial on using our cameras to take great photos of our dogs and in his case, dressing up his dogs and taking family photos. Around the World in 80 Days - Lyndall Fry speaking through the voice of her dog, Saki, the older of her two Havanese, telling us all the exciting parts to moving your home. Dog Performance Sports, Part II - Tracy Smith continues her explanation of the sports any of us could be doing with our dog. Preventing Separation Anxiety is another excellent article from Joan Weston, who makes her living as a Canine Behavior Specialist. The Annual Havanese Picnic is a little piece I wrote leading back to a few links containing hundreds of photos of a bunch of Havanese having a really good time. Wendy Allenby brought us up to date in her News from the U.K. and wait until you see the painting she drew and scanned for us to share. On a more serious note, Cancer in our Pet Population; Why is it on the Rise? – is from Patricia Jordan D.V.M. who will be contributing a few more articles in the coming issues. Suzanne McKay continues her series Beyond the Ring. This one is named Grooming for Performance. Once again Suzie Kalman had me laughing and I hope you will too as she talks about Divine Design - Paws by Milo. Another new contributor that will be with us for some time is Kathleen Coffman. This issue she shares How to Find and Purchase A Show Potential Puppy. Repeat After Me is another excellent training piece by my friend, Teddy Green. Anything my pups still do wrong is my fault, not hers. I was able to get in a new piece on another breed, something I find helps us learn more about our own breed; A Day in the Life of a Papillon Owner by Stephanie Hatton. My Pal, My Buddy, My Friend comes from Tom Wettlaufer, who has really upped his game the last few articles. What is Blowing Coat from Darlah Potechin is, as always, on point, informative and of interest to everyone. And last but never least, Letters from Cuba, Personal Memories XV: Daily Life with a Bichon Havanese by Zoila Portuondo. In this article she really talks about daily life in Cuba with her dogs. It really is different than North America. This might give you a small glimpse into just how large a difference it can be.
We always have our humorous columns balanced by some serious health columns and our training pieces which can benefit everyone. Everything is meant to educate and inform you on a wide range of subjects that should be of interest to all.
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.
As always our Readers have shared many random candid photographs and we’ve contributed a few of our own. I’m told many Havanese people still did not know that our magazine exists. For those of you that do, and enjoy what you read, please help spread the word especially that we are now also available in print for the many that just don’t enjoy reading online and might not own the latest iPad and such.
