Issue #30 contains the following articles:

Look at me… look at me! by Gillian Ridgeway. Her articles are always educational and informative, this time about the dogs exhibiting attention seeking behaviors.  We have a special article from Andrea Akkad writing on behalf of the Havanese Club of Great Britain that should be of interest to everyone. Next is a double-page pictorial from Lyn McLean out of New Zealand. The Nose Knows is the latest educational piece by Dave Thorpe. The title is self-explanatory. Then we have a two-part article by Suzanne MacKay about Coat Change. When I think Coat Change I think of the time our dogs blow their coat. Suzanne goes into much more depth. We Want a Puppy is the title of Joan Weston’s article. As a canine behavior specialist she brings her unique point of view having to deal with the results of wrong decisions and the problems that can occur. Next we have a story contributed by Inge Shears about doing Beginner Agility with her two Havanese; Ellie and Miko followed by a story by Darlah Potechin about Travelling with Dogs. Lyndall Fry has her usual humorous column writing about the lives of her dogs through the eyes of her oldest Havanese, Saki. This one is titled “This is the Winter of our Discontent”. Next is Wendy Allenby’s A Uniquely British Perspective that updates us on the dog fancy in the U.K.. Then I got permission to re-print an article written 10 years ago by Sierra Milton which is just as valid today as it was then about Omerta: The Breeders’ Code of Silence surrounding some breeders and their programs. Next is an article sent in by Rita Thomas who does her best to be on the leading edge of any new discoveries or technologies to do with our dogs. Tom Wettlaufer dives into Spaniels and their history and speculates that this is one of the breeds responsible for the existence of the Havanese today. The next article is back to a more light-hearted piece from the always entertaining Suzie Kalman and the antics of her Bichon and Havanese boys. She called it Time Out…It’s Not for Kids Any More. Kate Hamilton contributed a poem about her Havanese named Treasure. It is quite personal but also perfectly captures the essence of her dog. As always throughout the magazine are various dog spots filled with your contributions, photos of havanese sent in to us from literally around the world. I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I do.

The Havanese Breed magazine is devoted to the breed, and remains independent of any club. Every second 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.

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

 WE ARE NOT AFFILIATED WITH Havanese Rescue in Canada or the USA but there is nothing I wouldn’t do for them, to help with their respective missions.
