BUGS - AM GCH CAN CH THAT'S ONE NIRVANA COULDN'T KILL  - BEST OF OPPOSITE 

It's Bugs' first weekend back in the US, and entered him just to see how he is doing.  Evidently he blew it on the last go-round, as Bugs was in front and Brooklyn was behind, then Mr. Bassett switched them.  Still pleased with his performance, although Dave says that his coat has seen better days.  All that time getting to play in the grass, heat, wind, and dust in Colombia.  Exactly why we are overprotective of our coats.  Oh, well, he grows coat pretty fast, or used to, so we shall see. 

MASON - GCH THAT'S A NOTORIOUS DEFENDER - SELECT DOG 
Mason is a beautiful dog.  If his owner would send him on the road, we would have a tough time not showing him.  He is Taffy's sire.  Just his second weekend out with Larry, and technically he is not 'out with Larry.'  Connie takes him home and brings him to the shows.  Mason will figure it out.

Thank You Breed Judge Fred C. Bassett

Havanese note for today and other comments around the ring:  Today's Winners Dog, Best of Winners, BOBOH, and OHG1 was Luv Bug's Champagne Toast to Devita.  BEAUTIFUL PUPPY AND BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED.  Could have easily taken the breed.  Showed wonderfully on a loose lead.  Grooming was fabulous.  GREAT JOB!!!

#5 -  absent due to ring conflict - I should post his schedule for today.  An All-breed show, Working Dog Specialty, and Havanese Specialty, and to top it off, groups were split.  CRAZY, CRAZY, CRAZY!
TAFFY - Best of Opposite  Well, so far Miss Taffy is the most consistent loser.  4 shows, and 4 BOS.  Same male won twice, the other two shows were different males for BOS.  
Breed Judge Ms. Shelley S. Hennessy
Group Judge Mrs. Peggy Hauck - 

VERY ODD That the club would choose this judge for the Toy Group when she judges the Havanese Club Speciatly today as well.  But no surprise that the dog who won BOB (or any Havanese except as noted below) did not place in Group under this judge. 

Mrs. Hauck is definitely on our DO NOT SHOW TO list, at least with Havanese in the South East United States, or anyplace Harry Bennet may show up.  I just did a quick check on Infodog, and going back to 2005, checking 29 times that Peggy Hauck judged Havanese, EVERY time Harry has shown to her HE WON, from Ohio and Pennsylvania, to Florida.  How many judges, do you know who YOU can go to for a guaranteed win, no matter what you show.  I checked another breed as well, and results were the same for this pair.  THIS IS NOT JUST MY OPINION - THIS IS FACT BASED ON RESULTS POSTED ON THE INFODOG.COM WEBSITE.  Harry has taken up enough of my time for tonight, so do not feel like documenting any more stupid judge moves.  It's not Harry's fault.  Heck if I had a judge who I knew would put me up, I'd be showing to them all of the time too!
More details on the the post from the Havanese Specialty today.

Mrs. Hauck is definitely on our DO NOT SHOW TO list, at least with Havanese in the South East United States, or any place Harry Bennet may show up.  I just did a quick check on Infodog, and going back to 2005, checking 29 times that Peggy Hauck judged Havanese (at an MB-F show), EVERY time Harry Bennett has shown to Mrs. Peggy Hauch, HE WON, from Ohio and Pennsylvania, across the Southeast, and of course, in Florida.  I did not take the extra time to check the other show results through AKC.  How many judges, do you know who YOU can go to for a guaranteed win, no matter what you show, or whomever your competition?  I checked another breed as well, and results were the same for this pair.  THIS IS NOT JUST MY OPINION - THIS IS FACT BASED ON RESULTS POSTED ON THE INFODOG.COM WEBSITE.  Peggy Hauck & Harry Bennet have taken up enough of my time for tonight, so do not feel like documenting any more stupid judge moves.  It's not Harry's fault.  Heck if I had a judge who I knew would put me up, I'd be showing to them all of the time too!  But maybe not, because I wouldn't like the appearance of impropriety that would be projected upon the judge.  At some point the judge should say something to the handler, not necessarily face to face, as that could create it's own problem, but by the awards given in the ring.  Even if we didn't have a dog in this game, and we didn't at most of shows that I checked,  the facts are the facts, there were many, many great dogs, dumped by this judge in favor of a particular handler.  This is not the only handler/judge combo like this, and won't be the last.  This is not the first time I have mentioned this, and I am sure it won't be the last.  

The following is from the AKC Rules, Policies, and Guidelines for Conformation Dog Show Judges, page 5.  Perhaps it should be posted on the judges tables in the ring, just to remind them that we are watching:

A HANDY RULE OF THUMB
There will always be “gray areas” that perplex
judges. When faced with such a dilemma, ask yourself
whether the situation, however innocent, projects an
outward appearance of impropriety. A good rule of
thumb is:
If you have concerns about whether something
is inappropriate, you probably should avoid the

situation.

June 3, 2016 OH Group 




OWNER HANDLER GROUP WAS TREATED LIKE A FUN MATCH, 
where some judges think it is just for practice and it doesn't matter who wins, so put up your buddy!  As for me, if I am paying my money, and taking the time to show, I want to win.  This is not just for practice - but that is a whole other post!

Seen outside the OH TOY GROUP RING: 
OH TOY GROUP JUDGE:  MR. LEE BROWN.  
SHOW CHAIR & CLUB TREASURER
Mr. Brown spent 30 minutes prior to the OH Toy Group chatting with the Shih Tzu people outside the ring, while their dog was, of course, on the ringside table.  He made no attempt to avoid the look of impropriety.  It was blatant.  Then when it was time for the OH Group to start, he only had eyes for the Shih Tzu, when there were other beautiful dogs in the ring…the Brussels, the Pug, and of course the Havanese.  

It's one thing to put up your buddy, but you don't sit ringside and chat with them for half an hour prior to judging their dog!  This is nothing against the Shih Tzu.  It may very well have deserved the OH Group 1, but now will anyone ever really know?  Even the owner/handler…did they win because they had the best dog at that moment in time, or did they win because of time spent with the Judge?  The AKC rep was notified about this appearance of impropriety and hopefully will have a chat with Mr. Lee Brown.

Another NOHS Question

If a professional handler who has been breeding a certain breed for many, many years; whose dogs are whelped in his bedroom, raised with his family, and are shown by him; is not eligible to compete with his own dogs in the NOHS, how is it that an AKC Judge is allowed to compete in NOHS? 

THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HMMM….

I think the heat is taking a toll on Dave.  Varias showed very well and got totally dumped.  Taffy did great, but the rest of them are pretty much flipping Dave off and wanting back in the air conditioned motorhome! 90 degrees and humid 2 days in a row.  I would be locking myself in the motorhome and not coming out.  Tomorrow cooler though:  ONLY FORECAST TO BE 88 !!!  Rain will be starting late with rain all day on Monday. :(

I will miss him...

OK, so you know I'm not a big-dog person, 
and I'm not a shedding-dog person 
(I know I have Dudley.  Don't remind me!) 

But I am really going to miss this big teenage goof - Stevie.  
He is a beautiful Doberman puppy who has been with us for several months, as just a layover.  What a loveable dork. 

He is off to his new home today.   I love the photo of him in front of his crate.  Look at the shadow of his rear.  Awesome.

What would you think he meant?  
My response was 'Shoot! That sucks.  Well at least Taffy got a BISS.  Be careful driving'  
He didn't say anything else until now when he just called!

Evidently his text did not all come through. 
It was supposed to say:

A THANK YOU and an APOLOGY

I want to THANK everyone who has done so well with puppies that they have gotten from us.  Dave and I are thrilled with your every win, (Yes, even when you beat us) and could not be more proud.  So many of you have done so much, and I hope have enjoyed the ride. 
I want to APOLOGIZE for those times, which I am sure exist but hope have been very few and far between, when we might have missed an opportunity to congratulate you on a win, or reaching a milestone, or just a chance to give you moral support when you needed it.
Several years ago, we went through a situation with breeders who did whatever they could to 'bad mouth' us, especially when we won.  The problem:  our pup would beat his parents. 
That should be NO PROBLEM, for a breeder since the entire purpose of breeding is to breed better than you have and that is what they did - multiple times.  They just couldn't see it.  It was sad. 
They did what a good breeder is supposed to do.  Produce better dogs, and all they could see was that they were not winning with the parents.
OK, no you are asking yourself, why you are wasting time reading this, and why is she rambling?  I am very sad about a breeder & co-owner who cannot bring himself to congratulate us on some major wins.  Not even one like on any of the photos, brags, or ads that are on facebook. 
What he doesn't get is, just like the aforementioned breeder, all we are doing is having fun winning and advertising THEIR breeding program.  People can't buy a puppy from us.  We only have a male.  Who are they going to go to for a puppy like ours? 
OUR BREEDERS!!!!  Did we piss them off by winning?  I guess so.
