Issue #34 starts off with the always educational article entitled Baby Steps, from Gillian Ridgeway; a very well-known and well respected trainer in this area. Dave Thorpe continues with his always thought provoking discourse, this time on Punishment. Tracy Smith wrote a few paragraphs on the Canadian National Specialty as did the Specialty Judge, Joan E. Kirkland. Darlah took literally hundreds of photographs and a few videos of both the HOLA Regional Specialty and the HFC National Specialty. If you are into showing or show dogs or just want to see some great candid photos of some Havanese in competition you will enjoy what she has shared with us. Why Not Seven Weeks – The Forty-Ninth Day Revisited by Dr. Ed Bailey was a story many of you have not heard before and needed retelling 11 years later. Some still haven’t gotten the point of it. Then we have two pages of photographs of the De Luca wedding. Their Havanese, Mia, was a part of it all the way and they were kind enough to share. Andrea Akkad sent in a fairly good in-depth coverage of the HCGB Championship Show which was another British first for the Havanese. Then Suzanne McKay brings us the first of two stories we have in this issue dealing with Cancer called Little “c” and the big “C”. It has a happy ending! Lyndall Fry has moved south with her family. Titled A Change of Latitude means Island Time she fills us in from the view point of her fabulous Havanese named Saki. Wendy Allenby writes in about Dogs Trust, a very important part of the British show dog scene since the very first Crufts dog show. Another educational article this time from Sue Edwards called Oh my, what big teeth you have can help us all no matter where you are or how you deal with your dog’s teeth. Then Christine Kreutzer writes in about her first Halloween with Clarity, her Havanese. More educational information with Genetics, Behavior, And Puppy Temperament Testing by Carol Beuchat PhD and finally the second article on Cancer titled I have the lab report by Tom Wettlaufer also written from his own firsthand experience.

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.

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.
