I've been 'putting my hand down' from volunteering to organize an Island Havanese get together, having just come off a huge quilt show as the publicity person.... But, I've also been itching to get together with other Havanese owners & dogs on the Island. I think it would be a lot of fun and really important to share walk options, grooming tips, ideas for food sources...etc. I've checked out the other 'get togethers' on this forum, but haven't gotten any ideas re how to organize one. (Ditto another dog forum I'm a member of.)
I'd love to have ideas about what happens on a get together...other than just a walk. And, I'd love suggestions for where to walk together. (I'll have a look at blogs for our area.) I think the typical Elk/Beaver Lake walk might be too far for many people....maybe somewhere further north like Mill Bay or Duncan area....what do you think???
So....YES!!! Let's ask Bev & Gail for names if possible....and, I will put my hand up to see how to get in touch with Havanese owners on the Lower Island....with Bev & Gail sending puppy owners my/our e-mail address...I think it will need to be a reverse notice thing??? We're in Canada, so Freedom Of Information may apply.
I would love to meet and greet....and encourage Freestyle and Agility for Havanese...as well as PATS... since our sweet babies are so suited to all of these...
See, you've unleashed a monster....I would like to work on a get together in any form....
What are your ideas & suggestions? If you would like to e-mail me privately, we can work on it.
ALSO....it's starting to be our Fall 'Wet Coast' Weather....so, maybe our get together should be in the Spring??? If you're thinking October, we should get busy, don'tcha think???
ps: Any suggestions from others re how or what to do on a Havanese Day would be most welcome!!!
