In issue #33 we have the following articles:

The first is from Gillian Ridgeway and her article titled It’s All in a Word. Dave Thorpe writes about Aggression this time. We have included another excellent contribution from Dr. Becker called A Tragic Mistake That’s Easy to Avoid. Next is a one page pictorial from Elizabeth Obrecht proudly showing off two granddaughters in Junior Showmanship at the US National Havanese Specialty. I think you are going to find this next article thought provoking; Raising Puppies to be Brave by Gayle Watkins.  One last tribute page to Tyler has been sent in to us by Mary Bassing. Darlah Potechin contributes a timely story about Winter Fun. Lyndall Fry continues her journey through the eyes of her Havanese, Saki, as she deals with her younger brother, Tak, and a new addition. Wendy Allenby continues to fill us in on things happening across the pond. This time she really took umbrage with the decision of the FCI to host the world Dog Show in China in 2019. I can relate. Opposite her article is an official statement from the President of the FCI defending their decisions on this matter. Sue Edwards did her research on various dog products and came up with a brilliant article titled How does my dog Smell?  Inge Shears has contributed a pictorial with her family called A Wet Run in Cherry Beach Dog Park. The 2015 Havanese Club of America National Specialty has again been written by Scott Tomassi. In a separate article Scott pays tribute, Remembering Gator, lost to a tragic accident at the specialty this year.  Angela Snikkar sent in a lovely story about her Patches and this lady that had never touched a dog in her life, until now. Tom Wettlaufer delivers his usual thought provoking in depth article taking a good look at Inbreeding titled Is Inbreeding a good thing? And finally we have another pictorial. This time it is from Vicki McAndrew sharing with us from Australia.

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.
