Puppy Reunion Picnic

Here is something that I think all breeders should consider doing...

Last weekend, our breeder and another area Havanese breeder held a puppy reunion picnic. It is an annual event they do, and they invite all their puppy buyers from all their litters. There were about 30 havs at the picnic, so only a small percentage of the buyers end up making it. They set up two extra large x-pens so the dogs can play freely. Scout got to meet Desi and Nico and discover that they are cousins. Scout also saw his brother from the litter (I don't think they remembered each other). Although our weather was unseasonably hot (90 and humid), it was a very fun afternoon that included a costume contest and a raffle (Scout won a new dog bed). Scout was completed exhausted the next day.

I love the picture of all the Havs from the breeder's litters and the children with their Havs. Maddie's breeder, Kimberly, also had a first "birthday" reunion of Maddie's litter. It was so much fun meeting the other puppies' owners. It was especially nice for my husband and me since we had never seen Maddie's littermates because we adopted her when she was 8 months old. We had a great BBQ and the dogs and their owners had a blast. It is a wonderful thing for breeders to do, although I'm sure it is alot of work to coordinate.

That looks like so much fun! It really would be great if all breeders did that though I'm not sure I would be making it out to Kentucky so often, but it would be fun to have the option.

I wish they all would do it too! I think it's a grat idea. Plus, they get to see if there are any issues with their pups. Great pictures.

Funny you should bring this up!!! We're hosting our breeder's third annual reunion/BBQ at our home later this month. I think there are a lot of breeders who do it. I know ours loves to see her babies grow up. No matter who they belong to they are always and forever her babies.

Lina, you and Kubrick could visit me and the boys. I think we are about 30-40 minutes away from your breeder.

Peace, Love & Havanese
