8th Annual Online Auction for Hav Rescue!!

Hear ye, hear ye! The original, the one, the only, the annual Fall auction to benefit Havanese Rescue Inc and the Mira-cle fund is scheduled to begin on Saturday, November 1st and will end on Saturday, November 8th. This is our 8th year - can you believe it?

To make a donation, simply send the item description to me, along with a picture of the item (or a link to a webpage). Over the years, we have had just about every type of item you can imagine up for bid - from dog toys, dog carriages, clothing, treats and accessories, to jewelry, artwork, pottery, clothing, books and music, toys and games, antiques, holiday decorations, handbags, and more. The items do not have to be Havanese-related, or even doggie-related; you are limited only by your imagination and the ability to box up and mail the items to the winners when the auction ends.

The sooner you can get the descriptions and item pictures to me, the better, as I'm still learning my way around some new software. Plus, if you put it off and are "memory-challenged" like me LOL, you may forget and we'll find ourselves scramblin' to get your donations added to the auction site before it's too late.LOL

If you have any questions at all, please don't be afraid to ask me I'm pretty sure my announcement will be posted on the HCA, HRI, JustHavPuppies, Havanese, and Showforum lists - but if you belong to any other lists that would be interested in supporting rescue, please feel free to cross post. I'd appreciate it. Thanks!!

What is the Mira-cle fund?

Over the year's I've bid on and won a havanese raincoat, a sign, a wall hanging, tiles of rescue quilt squares, and a few other things. It becomes quite interesting if there is something you really want towards the end of the bidding...but we all win!

What is the Mira-cle fund? I will paint some silk and see what else I have. I wonder if I could make a havanese gourd. I have so many and have to figure out what to do with them!

I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!

I would like to know what the Mira-cle-fund is also. Laura, do we just send you a photo then mail the stuff to the winning person ourselves? I have something I want to send in.

I stuck this thread at the top so its easier to find.

Auction Info

Hi gang,

Yes, Melissa, you email the picture/description to me and then mail the item to the winner once I have their name/address.

About the Mira-cle Fund - the majority of the auction proceeds will go to Havanese Rescue Inc (probably better than 90%) but I wanted to be able to send a little something to the Mira-cle Fund. The fund is named in honor of Lu Wyland's girl Mira, who left for Rainbow bridge; full details can be found at http://www.havaneseclub.org/mira.htm. Basically, it's a fund to help IHC pet owners who meet certain criteria pay for medical bills for their Havanese.

I'm really looking forward to this year's event - it seems that Rescue gets busier every year. Some of you may know that I was a member of the original Havanese Rescue group before the split with HCA. I continued on for a few years with HCA Placement & Rescue Services before "retiring" LOL and now it seems that things have come full circle and HCA is using HRI as their Rescue service.LOL It's funny how things work out, isn't it?LOL No matter what it's called, my heart has always been with rescue and I'm hoping that this, our 8th auction, will be the best ever.

Now, on the homefront - - I've been just a little down because my leg is not healing as quickly as I'd hoped - after two surgeries, 4 1/2 months in rehab, and a month recovering at home. But, I was sitting at the dining room table eating dinner and my darling Shadow, from halfway across the room, flung his toy squirrel, which proceeded to hit me in the forehead and then fall on my plate.LOL Well, how can you get mad at a Havanese who has the most beautiful brown almond-shaped eyes in the world, and one black ear and one white?LOL I didn't mind a little fuzz in my mashed potatoes, besides, I hadn't had a laugh like that in awhile.LOL

Laura has the auction web site up. Hopefully she'll post the link here soon. It's fun to see what's been added as the days go by.
