Issue #20 of The Havanese Breed magazine is the second issue of our 4th year in publication. I hope you all continue to enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy putting it together. For those with an annual e-subscription it is available for downloading now at www.havanesebreed.com/pdf. The printed version has been sent off to the Printers and will be available for one week later.

Issue #20 starts off with an excellent article on training, Practice Makes Perfect by Gillian Ridgeway followed by an article on Junior Handling, The Next Generation by Debra Boudreau. Steven Ng continues with his excellent columns on Photography and dogs with an informative story on Making a Photo Book. Then we have A personal Experience of the Westminster Dog Show written by Elizabeth Obrecht. Next is a favourite of mine as it speaks of Havanese life in the desert and the things one must take into consideration, titled Rattlesnakes, Chollas and Bobcats by Mary Giles, not something you read about every day. Next up I am pleased to be able to share a Havanese Love Story with you from Belgium by Nadine Van Der Mispel followed by a tragic story about Rafi's brief life written from the heart by Gerry Esposito. Such stories have to be shared. Alice Lawrence has contributed an article named Cording, Are There Any Strings Attached? Alice has long been the most well-known supporter of a corded Havanese in the USA, probably in the world. Cords are not so popular or rarely seen outside the USA. "Mary Mary quite contrary …" continues Lyndall Fry and her stories written using the voice of her Havanese named Saki which talks about her daily travails with her brother Tak, always interesting, always amusing. On a more serious note Darlah Potechin writes about Bringing in an Unbalanced Dog or Rescue into your Home. Darlah is the co-chair of Havanese Rescue in Canada and knows of what she speaks. We have a little bit of poetry titled When a Giant Dies by Josh Edgar. As a teenager he wrote about the loss of his dog and the short poem resonated with us. The Dogs Days of Summer, at Camp comes to us from Tracy Smith. We can all relate to it. Then we have a story about the Havanese in Denmark from Britta Ejsing. There is a large amount of international Havanese content in this issue. We have another edition of Suzanne MacKay's Beyond the Ring, What Not to Wear and another amusing story from Suzie Kalman about her Bichon, Hugo, and her Havanese Milo, called Jeepers Creepers, Where'd You Get Those Peepers? Wendy Allenby is back with A Uniquely British Perspective and she is joined by Sue Edwards and a story about Dogs in Art. The two of them together will continue to bring us Havanese related information from the U.K. We have another excellent training piece from our favourite Behaviour Specialist, Joan Weston, titled Don't Say Don't (Just Don't, Really!) and another educational piece from Tom Wettlaufer called Drumstick, an in depth look and firsthand look at cruciate injuries. Mack Attack from Teddy Green is another excellent training article that should help any of us and finally we've included the Canine Vaccination Protocol from 2012 by W. Jean Dodds, DVM with her permission.

The Havanese Breed magazine is devoted to the breed, and remains independent of any club. Every month we bring you great articles, information, advice, humor, and guidance on a wide variety of subjects, concerns, training, nutrition, breeding, care, shows and products from a half a dozen countries all a part of the greater Havanese community. Share in the love! Please join us now and subscribe today.

I will happy to discuss anything to do with the magazine right here in this forum if you have any questions.

Since issue #14, The Havanese Breed magazine has also been available IN PRINT! For those of you that wish to receive a printed magazine in the mail you now have that option. Follow this link: www.havanesebreed.com/printed/ and scroll down just a bit to the SUBSCRIBE button.

THIS IS NOT A CLUB MAGAZINE. We are not affiliated with the Havanese Club of America http://www.havanese.org/ or the Havanese Fanciers of Canada http://www.havanesefanciers.com/ although I would like to think we have an excellent working relationship with both.

WE ARE NOT AFFILIATED WITH Havanese Rescue in Canada http://www.havaneserescue.ca/ or the USA http://www.havaneserescue.com/ but there is nothing I wouldn't do for them, to help with their respective missions.

Thanks Sandy. I try my best to maintain the diversity as well as the international flavor.
Hi Dave and Molly, you should consider subscribing to the magazine. You will enjoy it especially when you mention my friend Gillian. The first article in every issue now is hers. I also have one from Joan Weston and another from Teddy Lane every issue, both have been with me since we started going on 4 years ago. If you know Gillian you probably know Joan and Teddy. Jeannie and I are entered into a Tricks class at Whos Walking Who next week. We are graduates of pretty much everything they offer at one time or another.
Thanks for writing.

Lila,
All of the past issues are available electronically or the print issues since Issue #14. Many new subscribers have gotten all the past issues when they subscribed and then sat down for a serious Havanese read. LOL It is actually quite interesting to see the evolution of the magazine in that manner. I have been fortunate enough to have some really good people contributing to the magazine each issue and there are always articles from a half a dozen countries, all of us living our lives with our beloved Havanese. I hope your move go easy. I'd say I hate moving but isn't that understood? :)
IPDTA http://www.ipdta.org/ International Positive Dog Training Association is an organization and a concept I totally support. We have all learned so much the past 20-30 years, huge strides forward in understanding dog behavior. As far as I'm concerned the only way to train is based on positive reinforcement. I have no patience for any other method. We all know of or know Ian. Was is your connection to him? :)
Thank you
Nathan

yeah Nathan , I couldn't agree more. IPDTA has deceased basically , to be replaced by PPG (Pet Professional Guild. ). Basically the same principles with different founders etc. I have come to know Ian through IPDTA and Dog Star Daily. I was asked to do a speach at our awards ceremony on him, as he was unable to be present. We awarded him an outstanding achievement award. Great guy, and always willing to help out.

and you should be a writer for the comedy section Nancy. There's more people here that know the breed specifics more than I do. I concentrate on general dog areas. I',m currently working on an article for PPG that needs revision to pass the screening process. lol . Have to be politically correct these days. :nono:
