Hav Rescue Auction

Hi gang, the auction website is now up and the first page already has about a dozen donations listed <grin> Here is the URL

http://auction2007.homestead.com/index.html



Hi all,

Just want to introduce myself and ask permission to post a notice on your forum. I'm Laura, mom to Shadow (my sweet 8 yr old boy) and Kidget (his annoying 7 yr old sidekick).

I'm not a breeder and don't belong to HCA but have been around the Hav community for eight years so I've seen quite a bit.LOL I was a member and Secretary of the original HCA rescue group and when HRI split from HCA, I became Secretary of HCA Placement & Rescue, though I've since retired from those duties. I was also a member of the HCA Cuban Relief Committee and assisted Karon Fowler with some clerical duties for the Hav100 health study.

As happened when the two rescue groups split, I have friends on both sides of the Hav vs Silk issue. It hurts me deeply to see how friendships have been broken. Now, I don't mean to start another discussion about silks, I just want to explain that I will be equally as hurt reading negative remarks about either group - I have friends in both. Shadow is most definitely a Hav; Kidget's breeder tells me she qualifies as a Silk - to me, they're just my babies and the best reason I have for getting up in the morning.LOL

So, why I am here tonight - in 2002 I organized the first online auction to benefit HCA Havanese Rescue, HEART, and Cuban Relief. Last year, for the first time, HRI was also included as a beneficiary. Since HCA's rescue and Cuban Relief committees are not currently active, this year's sole beneficiary will be HRI.

One year, I received quite a dressing down from a list moderator for posting the details of my auction without first asking permission - so if it is ok to post here, I would love to share the details.


Laura also known as LoJ - - a take-off on J-Lo <grin>

Hi there LoJ! ( LOVE the name! lol)

Perhaps Dawna can help out, though Melissa is the owner of the group. Dawna is moderator. Not sure if Melissa is back from her travels.

Welcome to the forum! You shouldn't find many here who want a fight about the whole "silk" thing. Been there, done that, I think. lol

I'm Marj, from Quebec, Canada and mom to two havs, Ricky and Sammy who are both just over 1 yr. old and the highlight of my days. I am a SAHMom of 3 (17, 16 and 12) so life is a little busy around here.

It will be nice getting to know you and your boys.

Thanks, Marj, I'll wait to hear from Dawna or Melissa.

Kidget is nudging me - wants me to make sure you know she's a she, not a he! She says... hold on a moment... oh, she says, "Mom...tell 'em, black bitches rule, parti dogs drool". Oh, Kidget...really! (I'm sorry...she is incorrigible!)LOL

The nickname LoJ was self-imposed a few years ago when Jennifer Lopez was hot. My given name is Laura Jean, people usually call me Lor for short. I'm a short, dark haired Irish-Sicilian gal from NJ - quite the opposite from J-Lo, so I reversed the nickname J-Lo to Lo-J and it stuck.LOL

Yes Welcome ..
Melissa is on the road I think but I would like to say welcome and hopefully Melissa will soon be in touch with her decision ..
I am just a havanese Mom and we try to remain neutral to what is happening .. I really do not totally understand the whole matter and to me it is counterproducive but I mean no ill will to either side .. To me it is sad anytime there is division and friendships come to an end over an issue such as the silk issue .. especially when it relates to these sweet wonderful animals
It must be hard for you..
Thank you for taking the time to say Hello .

Hi LoJ,
Welcome to the forum. I hope you can post your auction information. I'm all for anything that will help rescue, being a new volunteer for HRI.

I think you'll find the forum a very friendly place. Even the Havanese vs HSD discussions, though they can get kind of heated, usually devolve into fun posts about wine, family photos, or whatever strikes our fancy.

Oh my gosh, you're a hoot !!!!!!! LMBO

Please tell Kidget that I am ever so sorry and I will forever refer to her as a SHE. Thank you for the correction.

I think you fit right in here, Lor!

Marj, Kidget thanks you for the correction. In light of your sincere public apology, she has cancelled her plan to 'innocently' piddle on your shoe should you ever meet. Oh, dear..what's a mother to do?LOL

Good nite, all.

Hope to learn more about you and your auctions.

okay I am not bringing up my thoughts on the auction but last year I took home the "My dog can beat up Paris Hilton's dog" shirt! It was perfect to wear with the maltese and everyone at my dog training club had such a kick out of it Isabelle is known to cause big drama and if the dog is small, she is so evil!
