Issue #28 of The Havanese Breed magazine is the 4th issue in our 5th 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

Issue #28 contains the following articles:

Gillian Ridgeway leads off has her usual educational and thought provoking article this time entitled Nervous Nellie. Suzanne McKay brings us an excellent write up on the 2014 Canadian Havanese National Specialty.  Dave Thorpe’s latest column delves into How Dogs Learn. Then Judith Jones has a few things to say In her Opinion that are well worth reading. Why isn’t my dog as good as my neighbor’s dog is another thought provoking article from noted canine behaviour specialist Joan Weston.  Goldilocks and the Two Pups is her title as Suzie Kalman brings us her latest bit of humour and wry look at the dogs she loves so very much.  Lyndall Fry, with the help of her two Havanese, continues to write about her life through the eyes of her oldest Havanese, Saki. This time the subject is A Keen Sense of Fairness and Order.  Wendy Allenby continues to update us on the latest news in the U.K.. Susan Edwards has an interesting article about The Year of the Pest. Then we come to one of my personal favorites as Michele Nieberding writes about the 2014 Havanese Nationals Agility and Obedience in Portland, Oregon. We have another great piece by Andrew Brice; The Root Cause of Exhibitor’s Dissatisfaction. It is interesting how many of the point he makes are just as valid in North America as they are in England. We have a page from Terry Mosher that features his Havanese, Sparky, in the well-covered launch of his latest book. Next is a light and to the point article written by Scott Tomassi about Getting Your Havanese Their Own Fire Hydrant! It is a great concept. With Beth Johnson’s permission we have re-printed her true story when Monte went missing many years ago. The story has a happy ending but the very real anguish, trials and tribulations she went through are well worth reading and who knows, it might one day help save your puppy. Tom Wettlaufer continues with his excellent series of educational articles this time writing about How Many Breeds. And last but not least we conclude this issue with None Dietrich’s article on the 2014 HGCA American National Specialty in Portland Oregon 2014. We’ve also included a few photos and a link to a thousand photos taken by Elaine Cirimele that she was kind enough to share with all of us.

 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.
