IN THIS ISSUE
Issue #19 of The Havanese Breed magazine is the first 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.
This issue contains articles from some very well respected professional dog trainers with various degrees of skill in specialized areas. As education is certainly one of the main focuses of this magazine, I am really pleased to have their articles starting with First is Foremost by Gillian Ridgeway.
I would like to think the magazine is of value to anyone that shares their lives with a Havanese, from the day they get their puppy and throughout their entire lives. We have a feature article on the Westminster Kennel Club show and the regional and national specialties through the eyes of a couple of participants. I’ve included a couple of messages from the AKC who are fighting their own political battles against some people and organizations that would prevent all of us from ever owning a puppy again. Steven comes through with another in a long series of excellent and helpful articles for all those of us that try our best to photograph our puppies and dogs. Judy Corrigan adds a few small anecdotal stories about her Rosie, the first of an ongoing series of such stories from her and others I hope to carry for you in future issues. Lyndall adds another in her first person Saki stories told through the eyes of the older of her two Havanese. Darlah contributes an excellent article on coat care and believe me, she knows of what she writes. Tracy offers a thank you to all those that helped her become the dog person she is today. Lyn provided a cartoon from New Zealand that she and Squirrel created together. In the USA it is called Canine Good Citizen. In Canada we name it Canine Good Neighbour training. This issue there is an excellent article on this subject by Naomi Kane, about a certification we should all be obtaining for our dogs. Suzanne continues her Beyond the Ring series while Suzie brings us the continuing adventures of Hugo and Milo which continue to delight. Kathleen’s article on Designer Pet Breeds and the Hype of Hybrid Vigor speaks for itself. We have an interesting article contributed by Ruth Ziereis from Germany discussing the formation of a new Havanese club in her country. Then a really hard subject handled adroitly by Claire Paulson dealing with Euthanizing your Dog. This article is not for everyone but it is an important read nonetheless. Tom once again brings us a well-researched column, this time dealing with DNA. Eddie sent us in a lovely collection of photos that together became Jesse’s Story, a pictorial. Teddy and Joan, two of the best canine behaviour specialists I know, closed out the magazine with two more excellent pieces meant to inform and educate. As always we have a selection of puppy and dog spots filled with wonderful photos of Havanese from all corners of the world shared with us so that we could share with you. And how cool is that front cover photo Sandy provided from Germany?!

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.
