Well, I finally met a Havanese in person! Wow, what cuties they are. I went with my husband who...happened to injure his back earlier this morning, but still went with me...poor guy. He was in a lot of pain ;-( He pushed our youngest in a stroller for his own support and my daughter was fascinated by the all dogs and want to sit ringside and watch all the dogs.
I saw a lot of breeds I haven't seen ever before, some where furry, some not so much. But I have to say that there was a chinese crested there that I thought was very quirky and charming. Such a girly dog. They look like little stallions and I love the tuffs of hair nears its paws like a clydsedale. I wouldn't want to own one due to their skin problems, sun protection and clothing, etc needed in winter, but if they ever get an acne free, no sunscreen needed and I am no longer with my husband...I would get one. Until then, my husband is saying NO WAY.
We got there about 15 minutes before the Havanese were to go into the ring, I briefly said hi to Sandy, a breeder in our area and told her that we would try to talk to her later afterwards. Never got a chance to talk to her as she went ringside to another breed showing and I didn't want to interrupt her viewing of another breed that she is partial too. So I spoke with a few other breeders and got pretty much the same info on how wonderful they are.
Diane, If you read this, we couldn't find you after the show...were you by chance wearing a pink jacket? I was really hoping to talk to you too! Meeting another forum member would have been a plus too. It is always nice to meet someone face to face ;-)
Incredible little dogs they are.
