MAJOR BRAGS FROM CHINA

We received some photos from our dear friend Steven Shen in China.  Steven has two of our Havanese boys:  Ted, NGKC CH That's A Real Lady Killer @ Evertop, and Drake, AM NGKC CH That's In Search of the Truth.  Drake was the first NGKC Havanese Champion.  He has multiple Group 1's and Multiple Reserve Bests in Show.  (Fingers crossed for the REALLY BIG ribbon!)  Ted is Group Winning (not sure how many so far), and has a BIS3 - kind of like Reserve Reserve BIS, I think.

We are so proud of them!!!!

Ted is a littermate to Baby Belle, who recently finished her AKC CH and has almost all of her points towards her GCH.   He is a Desi grandson.  Naughty x Bugs

Drake is out of Mason, a Desi son, and Panda.

My Phone

Well anyone who has known me for a few years knows that my phone has been jacked up.  It all started a couple of years ago, when my voicemail would say 'The mailbox is full' if someone wanted to leave me a message.  If I tried to clear the messages, it would say "You have no messages."  So, off to the store I went, and they took the battery out, waited the alotted amout of time, then replaced it and 'reset' something.  It worked fine for about 2 months after that.  Then it did it again.  Repeated the process, and they they showed me what to do 'IF' it ever happened again.  But "you might need to get a new phone."  "Isn't this part of your computer system?" I asked.  Long pause, then "Oh, yeah, you're right."  So, months go by again with no voicemail, and I buy a new phone.  A 'smart' one this time.  (I miss my flip phone - yes I am old!)  Well, it is no smarter than my flip phone.  I have had this phone for over a year and no one can figure out how to fix the voicemail.  Next option is to get a new number.  BUT I AM OLD !!!   I have had this number for a very long time.  I am post-menopausal (which should be incentive enough for them to fix it) and don't want to have to learn a new one.  Remembering the old one is hard enough!  

I even let it go dormant, and did not renew it for a month or so to see if everything would 'reset' but it didn't. 

What is the point of this rant, you might ask?  Well, last week my phone did not know what day or time it was most of the weekend, so I slept very little in fear of oversleeping for our early ring times.  This week my phone has gone from severe dimentia to a coma.  It wakes occasionally, but you don't know if it will be coherent, or for how long it will remain awake.  

I went to look for a new one, but ended up buying a new camcorder instead, so that we could take puppy videos.  

If you need to reach me, please email or call Dave's phone.  

THANKS !!!!

I wonder if our Facebook 'friend' would get this?

All it would take is a minute or two to think about things 
before you do this….


Offensive to some, Hilarious to the rest of us.

Especially those of us with bigger 'speakers'

What a handsome boy! Not Available Havanese Puppy

Dave loves this boy!  OK, we love these litters, but are NOT keeping them all.  This boy has stolen Dave's heart.  He is out of Keisha & Bugs.  Born November 5, 2014.

Help us name this boy too!!!

This is only part of the whole video but there is a low limit on MBs on videos that I can post here.  The full length video is available on Dave's facebook page.  https://www.facebook.com/david.scheiris

Pry these Havanese Puppies out of Dave's Hands

Dave is in love with a beautiful gold sable bitch out of Choco x Desi.  and with a dark gold sable and white boy out of Keisha (Selena's sister) and Bugs.

The entire videos are too large for this blog, so you'll have to check them out on Dave's facebook page if you want more puppy fix.

Still thinking about a name for her:

All puppies were born in November 2014.

We still have some fabulous puppies available.  Some are available as pets, but we are proud enough of the quality that any of them could be shown:

KANSAS CITY SHOWS...OFF THE GRID

I WAS KIDNAPPED!!!  

Forced to stay in the motorhome with my husband at the KC dog shows.  Can you believe it!!!!????  He already had one Darlene staying with him, but he was selfish and wanted two!

No internet and my phone had a spaz-attack, and didn't know what day or time it was (yes, just like me!)  Said 'unable to connect call' yet I guess some people still heard me 'chatting' with the darn thing. 

It wasn't a bad show weekend though, took home lots of ribbons and points, although none of those really big ribbons.  Only three breeds to show but lots of ring conflicts.  Saw some old friends, made some new ones, pissed off some people (but I guess it wouldn't be a dog show with me if that didn't happen), and found how how big of Kahunas one guy had, still shaking my head over that one.  
Some people never cease to amaze. 

I will dig through the memory banks and post all of the results that I can remember.  

HOPE YOU ALL HAD A FABULOUS WEEKEND!!!

Bichon Frise Nurple - Westminster Award of Merit

Nurple's photo with Judge James Reynolds arrived this week.

I did find it odd that no ribbons were given for Award of Merit.  We did received a small, boxed, medallion engraved with the Westminster Kennel Club logo on one side and "Award of Merit 2015" on the other though!

Thank You again Judge Reynolds for appreciating our great moving boy!

CRUFTS BEST IN SHOW HANDLING CONTROVERSY - 2015

CRUFTS BIS HANDLING CONTROVERSY...

I am not positive where I stand on this but am leaning towards it being THE JUDGE'S CALL.  To me it falls into the same category as a breed standard calling for, or a judge telling you to show on a loose lead, then rewarding the dogs who are strung up so tight that their front feet don't touch the ground.  If the ring belongs to the judge, and the judge works for The Kennel Club, then the judge should have been informed by The Kennel Club of the handling restrictions/requirements/prohibitions etc.  Unless the clubs are going to take away from the authority of the judge in the ring and place a referee in the ring to catch things that are happening when the judge is looking elsewhere, and there is an 'instant recall' video feature, we have to leave the judging and awarding of ribbons or disqualifications up to that judge.  After all isn't that why the clubs hire them and we enter under them? 

I witnessed a judge DQ a purple/blue dog this past weekend.  BRAVO TO HIM!!!  Not even in the grandest old-lady hair colors was this natural to any living, breathing creature.  A flower maybe, but a warm blooded critter, definitely not!

We have all seen things happen in the ring that were not right, whether it was handling 'technique' or hitting of a dog, or a dog who actually bit his owner (and drew blood-yes in the ring) but I, for one, was told by and AKC rep that the judge had to see it for anything to be done about it. 

I have been wanting to write something about a HORRIFYING action that I saw when boarding one of the shuttles in NYC getting ready to go to the Piers this year.  A woman with a Newfy and short-woman syndrome literally punched her dog in the head.  The dog was not misbehaving, he barely reacted to another dog, a Portie I believe, that made a somewhat aggressive move towards him.  The Newfy evidently had enough of a reaction to startle the owner/handler so she punched him in the head.  Not a little tap, or a swat as a minor correction, but A FULL FISTED PUNCH!!!  Then she did it again!  It took a minute for me to realize what I had just witnessed, and when she drew her arm back, hand clenched into a fist, for the third time, I yelled at her to stop.  I told her she had better not hit that dog again, or she would be dealing with more than just me.  I was the only one, of all the people boarding that bus, who said anything. 

And now with the poisoning and BIS handling controversy at Cruft's, no wonder people have the wrong idea about show dogs and show people.   

However, it wasn't the wrong idea about that woman.  I wouldn't want to be a show dog with that owner either.

Boy, do these people take their working dogs seriously!!! An entry of over 700 WORKING DOGS!!!
Top ranked dogs in almost every breed.  Group placing dogs from The Garden and Eukanuba.  Highly advertised dogs.  What a tough competition it is here, but fun and hearing lots of great compliments from judges and spectators alike about Varias. 

AND SPEAKING OF "TOP RANKED DOGS"


Here are Varias' 2015 rankings as of January 31, 2015:

# 5 BRT in All-Breed Standings 
#3 in Breed points
#4 in GCH Points

Sorry, I don't have the judges available right now but thought I would post the results.  Now updated below.  My computer (a MacBook Pro) keeps getting popups saying that I need to update my Windows Vista on my PC!!!  Every time I click on an email, or any other page for that matter, it takes forever to open and advertisements start popping up.  I can't search so if I need anything I can't just type in a word, I litterally have to scroll through every file to find it.  This all started a couple of months ago with i-tunes saying it had a problem.  I have never used i-tunes.  AAACCCKKK !!!!!  
If it wasn't for the gazillion dollars worth of programs that I cannot switch to a PC I would chuck this darn thing out the window! 

If we aren't answering emails right away, that is part of the reason.  I am currently using the hotel computer to try to catch up but there is now a line so I need to get going.

So, back to the show...

Varias was not shown in Group because he seemed to be feeling poorly in the afternoon, so we opted to spend 3 hours at the Vet in New Jersey with him, and check out a few more things.  Still on antibiotics.  I sure hope he doesn't have to go through what I did from November through January!  

Please say a prayer for him to be back to 100% very soon.
