Talking Typing up the Havanese research paper in the morning

After a bit of arm pulling the Prof graded my organizational plan. I can officially start the paper. I have you all to thank that gave me idea on what to use. I took the advise, you can see it on my blog. I will not have the paper published I think unless it is above highly exceptional. High standards I know, but I am retentive. I prefer writing books to research papers any day of the week! A heartfelt thank you again for those who cheered me on and helped me out you really impacted the structure of my paper for the better.

I don't envy you writing that paper. It's going to be pretty tough to show that the health problems have gone up in the breed after you visit offa.org. I'm kind of curious as to why a Hav is more difficult to own than another breed also.

It is not that they are more difficult to own, but look at the peopel who go out and buy them because they are cute. The Havanese is not you average small breed dog, they are emotionally needy, more so then say a Papillon. They don't shed, but they need to be groomed well even in a short coated cut. They are not just an animal you can buy to have as an accessory (like some do with Chihuahua's) and not worry about tending and upkeep. What you choose color wise as a puppy is not always what you get color wise as they mature. They are smart but a bear to house train if consistency is not used. My whole point is to make those on the edge of getting one REALLY look into the dog they are getting not just buy it because it is cute or a fad to have. These could be considered status symbol dogs, they were in the past, present day that has lead to the over breeding (puppy mills getting in on them like they were cash cows not dogs with feelings). Supply vs. demand. I like the fact that they are a fairly kept secret, but as they gain more popularity what will happen to them scare me. They are different, in a good way. It is skewed again toward a laymen on them. To those of us who are fanciers of the breed already, basically everyone on here, its common knowledge!

There are a couple of people who have gotten puppies from me on the forum. I think they've posted that the puppies were at least 90% trained at a young age and they had very few boo boos once they got to their house. If that same dog was an 80 pound dog that could really leave a huge mess there might be more toy dogs (not just havs) fully potty trained. I have one hav that is a little more needy than what I'd like but the others have a pretty independent spirit.
Havanese do well in rescue because they adapt so well to new homes and people.
As far as having 'more' health problems, please start with offa.org before putting that in print. Reputable breeders have been breeding away from problems, not toward them. We are considered a very healthy breed overall. SA is normally only tested if you feel you have a problem. I don't know many who would have a SA punch done without the dog showing symptoms of it in our breed so the numbers are going to be off because of that. Thyroid is up for grabs as some breeders do the test; many don't unless they see a reason for the test.

The Title and Abstract 1st drafts are completed. I am pretty fairly please with the initial draft. Do note, I am not attacking or criticizing the breed. There are negatives as well as positives to these guys, in the paper it is my duty to show both. It is the uninformed wanna-be owners, backyard breeders and puppy mills I am targeting. I know these will not be the "accidemic leauged" paper he asked for, but hey I got to look at puppy pics, get feed back from some awesome people (you guys!) and get graded on it. I am guessing it will be a B paper because of it. So "B" it!



The Forgotten Refugees of the Cuban Revolution: Facts on the Havanese Dog

Havanese are one of the most wonderful small dogs, they are smart, soft, cute, and great with children. Much of the problems we see today are not with the dog breed itself, but lack of knowledge on the part of those looking to own them. Many people do not properly research the dog they are going to buy. They use their emotions to choose. The costs of ownership will be addressed from purchase to daily up keep; these dogs have a hefty price tag. There are dangers of not researching where the dog comes from, puppy mills are becoming more interested in the breed as they are compact and hypoallergenic they expensive to purchase. One has to know where to look and what questions to ask of a breeder to insure a health tested well adjusted pet. These dogs though small and lovable are not an accessory as many others in the toy breed can be labeled. They can have color changing coats, emotional issues, and even may have some health issues other small breeds do not, and so will an owner have the time and patience for them if a problem arises? One need to realize the gender roles are somewhat switched in this breed from what one would expect. People need proper education on these dogs before they buy them. Is the Havanese of today even the same little dogs as the eleven rescued by their owners as they fled during the Cuban Revolution? The Havanese is a somewhat controversial dog; from the mystery of its past, right up to what a true Havanese is today there are debates raging.

Ruff (rough) draft was submitted last night. I will begin badgering instructor next week for the grade. He is notorious for not grading. I guess some people in class have gotten not a single grade at all this semester. I have called him and emailed him several times. "Suggesting" that he grades me to get me out of his hair. We will see. It is not the best. I had only 10 pages I could write with. I skirted the major health issues, and color genetics which are papers on to themselves.
