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.

Says it all...


Central Oklahoma Toy Dog Club, Sunday May 22, 2016 Oklahoma City, OK

OK, SO I WAS HORRIBLY MISINFORMED!!!!
My apologies to Mr. Forte!!!

The text that Dave sent said the following: 

Milo
Quiz
Taffy 
Piper  
zip
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:
Milo BOB
Quiz WD & BOW
Taffy BOS
Piper 2nd (zip for points)
(so now I get the order of the names)


So…I the usual format...

HAVANESE

QUIZ - 1st, WINNERS DOG, BEST OF WINNERS - MAJOR

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.

#1 HAVANESE NOHS

CONGRATULATIONS TO CAROL JANES & BENNY!!!

Their latest Group Placements and Best in Show have put them at the top of the AKC Havanese Rankings in the NOHS.  They have also breached the top 100 in All-Breed, coming in at #81.

We are so proud of what Carol has done with this boy!  After almost a year off due to knee surgery and subsequent recovery, she still isn't "Miss Zippy around the ring" and has only shown a handful of times this year, yet have reached this wonderful milestone!

Wishing them continued success with this beautiful boy.

OUR HAVANESE CH That's A Real Shoe In Eh

OUR Havanese:  CH That's A Real Shoe In Eh - aka Imelda was added to the Havanese Gallery today by someone other than one of her owners.  Below is a screen shot of the entry.  Much of the information is incorrect.  I think I know who it was, but why would anyone do that with a 12 year old dog?  I have contacted the person who owns the Havanese Gallery with proof that she is ours, but I guess it's welcome to America again.  Doesn't cost someone anything to cause you problems, but can cost you a lot to prove that they are wrong!  Wondering if that is why there are duplicates of so many dogs on the Gallery?
You should have to disclose who has entered the information.  But of course, as with anything online, you can make up names and emails! 
VERY FRUSTRATING!!!

Neither Bichon shown today.

DOBERMAN
Dobie not shown today because of Judge Luis Sosa.  

The AKC still does not see the conflict of interest in Mr. Sosa being a show photographer (a bad one at that) and a judge, but we do!  We won't show to him unless we have no choice with a specials dog, but otherwise we will not put ourselves in that position.  We entered the BRT in hopes that there would be a judge change.  Dave showed him in the breed ring, but not in group.  In the breed ring, Varias shook his head, as dogs are apt to do, ears and hair flopping away.  Mr. Sosa jumped back, arms in the air, like he was ready to make a scene.  What a dufus!!!  Couldn't risk him (the judge, not Varias) doing something else stupid in the group ring, so it was best to not show Varias in Group.  
Sad but true.
