Meet the Breeds
Valentine's Day certainly turned out to be a day for the love of dogs. It kicked off with the preparation for the 139th Westminster Show, the Master of Agility Championship, and the 6th annual AKC Meet the Breeds Show, this year held at Pier 94. New York City was filled with dog lovers and they all showed up to meet and play with over 100 different breeds.
Of course our Havanese were well represented at the Meet the Breed. It was truly a "hands on" event with everyone stopping to pet, admire, and learn all about our breed. This year we had more Havanese participating. They showed off their good manners, their different sizes and coat lengths: from very short to very long full coat. Together they demonstrated that a Havanese can be right for everyone.
Our booth was decorated with dozens of pictures of club member’s dogs in candid’s, costumes and companion dog activities. We gave out informative literature from the HCA, the GNYHC and Havanese Rescue. Our “sign up book” for further interest/information hit a record with 47 requests, a sure sign of interest in our breed. Havanese owners who stopped by asked to be kept informed about local events. Check out our photos to see some of the action at the booth.
