The 2018 HCA National Specialty is being held August 6-11 at the Westin Lombard in Illinois. Substantially closer than NC for us, and it seems like efforts are being made to keep agility iff carpet (thank goodness), so Nino and I will be there...and maybe with a tag along showing in 4-6 month ;)

Anyone else we can count on seeing? I know Carolina and Paco plan on going, and I think Shama and her mama were hoping to...Karen, I know you have another travel conflict (lucky duck...Australia is great). Who else can we plan on seeing?

Checking in to see if any forum members plan on attending. I will be there Monday through BOB on Saturday. Nino is showing in agility on Tuesday and rally on Wednesday. Puppy will be showing in 4-6 on Friday.

We're still trying to decide as Shama hasn't done well at her trials so far (one teacup, two CPE, and two AKC) and as we're getting our Austrian exchange student in Minneapolis on August 8. We currently have a hotel reservation for the night of August 6, but we could cancel. If I want her to run agility on August 7, I suppose I should register her soon. Maybe I'm already too late? (Today, after taking two weeks off for our vacation, she was a rock star on our little course in the back yard -jumps, weaves, and tunnel . . .)
Agility entries close on the 15th, so I would go for sooner than later ;). People expect very little from novice dogs (even if they have attended a handful of trials). If they do well, people are impressed. If not...oh well! If anything else, it's a good time with like-minded Hav lovers and a blast to see so many doing their thing.

We got in! Will anyone else be at the agility trial, even just as spectators?
Woo hoo! Glad your entry made it. The Havanese agility gang is too fun.

The boys' breeder will be there, along with the woman who owns Nino's champion litter mate who we came to know and love through shows. Both there to cheer us on (then we cheer Frankie and Sally on during obedience!)
