Barbra Walters talks about her Hav
I am watching the view as we type... Barbra Walters talked about Cha Cha, her Havanese. She discussed how Obama needs to contact Havanese Rescue because the Havs are the best way to go.
Yes, this is true. However, we all know what happens when a breed (Yorkie's come to my mind) is blown up in the media eye. Puppy Mills start mill'en out pups more so then normal. More dogs will be placed into rescue because of the people who didnt research, and are disapointed in their pet. Breeders who are honest and hard working, trying to better the breed, may make mistakes on homes for their pets and those pets may get hurt due to accidents, no one caring for their pet, children being a little to rough, etc.
This worries me. Im sure a ton of you will argue and disagree. Thats fine. It doesnt change my view.
I would hate to see more people mill out these amazing animals and distroy what we have worked so hard to build. This is still a small breed both in size and number. I would hate to see that change.
I know when I was trying to find my Roxy (Yorkie) it took me a couple of years to find a breeder I could trust, one that cared about health testing (in Yorkies thats hard to find), and that wasnt a mill'er. I finally found one in WA that I was impressed with, loved her breeding program, her lines, etc. And I fell in love with my baby. However, I am few and fare between when it comes to searching for a dog. People rush and want their dog NOW. They dont want to wait. This can cause several issues. I know you all aware.
Anyway, if you want to see the clip of Barbra discussing her Cha Cha go to abc.com and click on The View. Go to Hot Topics. They havent posted todays video, and wont until HI sees the show. So I would wait for a couple of hours.
