Havanese Picnic

Every year Nathan and Darlah Potechin of Talemaker Havanese and Yvonne and Alex Poole of Chicadoro Havanese host a picnic for their puppy people. Yesterday was this year's date and while we've had Piper for almost two years now, this was our first picnic. It was great and definitely worth the horrendous traffic through Toronto to get there! A great afternoon of getting together with like-minded dog people, great conversation, great food, and of course great Havvie fun! In fact, kind of how I imagine a forum picnic going down if we all got together with our dogs for an afternoon - although probably geographically impossible it's a fun thought! Piper preferred to hang out on the side lines and visit from person to person instead of crazy play with the other dogs, as after a run in with an over-exuberant large breed puppy she's a little timid around new dogs BUT it's something we're working on and she's getting better every class we go to.

Thought you folks might like to see some pics

Love your pictures. Aren't Havanese parties the best? Laurie has play dates at her house too and it's so fun to see them all playing.

Yep, that's Nathan on the ground. I think he spent most of the time either down with the dogs or with a dog in each arm aha. Darlah already has a gallery of 300 and some photos linked in the "All About Our Dogs" section of the site.

Thanks Jen! Yes, they are wonderful dogs that seem to attract wonderful people!

I am one of Darlah's blog followers and saw the pictures she posted. Looks like everyone had a great time, as they do each year. Nathan is definitely a dog guy. He plays with and loves them all always. Saw that there's another litter or two on the way. The fun begins again!

Thank you all! Canela & Vino's Mom I certainly did love 'em all up. In a yard full of Havs it's nearly impossible not to!

Mary, yes Nathan is definitely a dog person. Him and Darlah both are, no question about it, and the proof is in their dogs and pups. It's too funny when he does that "puppy, puppy, puppy" call and all dogs just turn their heads and RUN for him.
