Followup on STUPID PEOPLE.

This puppy was out of the last litter of the end of a line.  We would never have sold her, but it wasn't entirely our litter, so wasn't our call.  These people had her spayed less than a week before turning her into the shelter.  They supposedly turned her in because she had intestinal parasites and a slimy stool.  They were treating her with enemas and some other holistic treatments.  

ANYONE EVER HEARD OF GIVING A DOG AN ENEMA FOR INTESTINAL PARASITES???

Now don't get me wrong, I have no problem with holistic treatments, but with all of the health testing that the Humane Society did, there was no evidence of any health problem, whatsoever, with this puppy.  

CALL YOUR BREEDERS!  CALL THE PARENT CLUB!!!  DO NOT PUT YOUR DOG INTO A SHELTER.  IF SOMEONE BRINGS A LIVING BEING INTO THIS WORLD, AND PLACES IT WITH SOMEONE ELSE, THEY SHOULD BE WILLING TO TAKE THEM BACK AT ANY TIME.   

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A DOG MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE THAT IN WRITING. 

I am just sick about this.  How do you know who to trust?  I guess putting scary things in a contract, kind of like putting locks on doors, they just keep honest people honest.  Stupid people, or people who's goal is to do something against the contract, I guess will always find a way to hurt the dog.  
I HATE THIS.

OMG!!! STUPID, STUPID, STUPID PEOPLE !!!

And people don't understand why I hate breeding dogs… 

An hour ago, we got a call from a Humane Society in Arizona.  They had a puppy whose microchip was indirectly registered to us.  We co-bred the litter and provided the microchips and had a record of it.  

Within two days of placing this puppy, our co-breeder had second thoughts and tried to buy her back.  The new owners refused as they 'were so much in love that they could not part with her.'  

Well, after no contact for over 6 months with either us or our co-breeder, the call came today:  
They had turned this Havanese puppy in to the local shelter!!!  STUPID.  For one thing - any of us would have taken her back.  For another thing, our contract says that there is a $$$$ penalty if that puppy ends up in a rescue or shelter situation.  AND THE CO-BREEDER WANTED HER and they knew that!!!  

Kelley and Duncan White paid a lot of money for that puppy, and then did this.  Those people do not deserve a dog - EVER!!!

THANK GOD FOR MICROCHIPS!!!  

I hate this.  I hate to think about what would have happened if they could not have reached us.  I HATE dealing with people that are this stupid, selfish, or whatever the situation is.  If they could not get ahold of the co-breeder (who lived 10 miles from them), we would have been on a plane in a heartbeat to get this pup back.  Thank goodness that the shelter did due diligence, scanned the microchip and followed through.  We reached our co-breeder and she is on her way to pick up this little girl, who has already been over vaccinated with every vaccine the shelter could think of.

MICROCHIPS AND CO-OWNERSHIPS - Even on your pet puppies are a good SAFETY NET.   

It tells people that you care about what happens to lives that you bring into the world.

Innocent until proven Guilty????

Someone sent me the following link, to a TV news story, about an AKC Judge.  Thought it was interesting.  Top of the line leather goods with designer names are not bought New - or factory seconds from China.  They have their own outlet stores in which to sell them, if they even admit that there is a 'factory second.'  

Has she never seen any of those TV Magazine shows about designer knock-offs?

But we need to remember that this is America, and she is innocent, until proven guilty.  (lol)

FORT PIERCE, Fla. —A Fort Pierce businesswoman is in hot water, accused of selling fake products.
Janet Fay Birdsall, 46, of Fort Pierce, was released Thursday on bond.
Birdsall is accused of selling counterfeit products at her Orange Avenue store, Bling it.
Detectives executed a search warrant on Thursday and found dozens of items believed to be counterfeit.
WPBF 25 reporter Angela Rozier tried to speak with her Friday. "I need you to leave. OK? I need you to leave please," Birdsall said.
Independent experts helped officials determine that items said to be Michael Kors, Coach, Tory Burch, Gucci, Chanel, Van Cleef & Arpels and Sanrio were fake.
"She was marking the products as second-hand manufactures defective products when in essence they were actually counterfeit products," Lt. Brian Hester, with the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office, said.
"She said it came right out of the factory so that's the story. I was annoyed. I felt like I got hoodwinked pretty good," Jennifer Gulluni, a victim, said.
Birdsall was charged with possession of counterfeit merchandise over $2,500. (it was actually over $24,000.00)
"She appeared to be a honest person but if she's selling fake bags and telling us they are real, then I got a problem with that," said customer Brenda Williams.

I wanted Dave to show Leilani, our Bichon, in the fun match last night.   We have only had her back for a short time and she needs the practice. 

Leilani did not get shown in the match. 

Dave ended up judging the match instead!

They are good people and really do put on a nice show and always try to find someone knowledgable to judge their matches.  When it comes to breed standards, he's your man!
Glad he could help out the club.

We do need to get the City of Grove to put lights on the back of the building though.  

Someone fell over / onto some of our SeaBreeze expens the other night and squshed them dead :(

FOR SOME REASON, I CANNOT LOG ONTO AOL FROM THE HOTEL WIFI.   So not only does my phone have "Calheimers' - A disease that I recently named.  

Now I cannot even check emails while at the Wichita shows.  

And to top it off - Dave's phone has gone AWOL.  I am sure it will turn up, because anyone in their right mind wouldn't take it. 

So for now we are mostly incommunicado.  I don't know why it will let me access this blog.  It feels like a GOOGLE TAKEOVER !!!!   EEEEKKKKK!!!!!

Our Contracts !!!

I guess it is a good thing that Dave and I believe that our contracts are fair to everyone.  We just entered into another contract with someone who did not have one set up to cover that particular type of transaction.  So they asked if we had one and could they see it.  We sent it to them and said "here is ours, use it if you want."  
And they did.

The Talk of the Town !!!

Or at least of the Match!!!

New Havanese owner Paula Bender (you probably recognize her name from Bichons) had a pretty darn good day at the match (somewhere in Texas - it is a whole 'nother country) on Saturday.  Best of Breed and a Group 1 !!!   WOO HOO !!!

Paula has Keisha x Bugs girl Ripple, now known as Piper - That's A FrontPage Special Report.

Paula was a little hesistant, as most people are when it comes to Dave's philosophy on lead training a Havanese puppy, but she went with it.

I think she was even happier when the Saturday's judge came up to her on Sunday and told her "you have MY puppy!"

We are so proud of them both!

Here is a short video of Piper, taken about 2 1/2 weeks ago.  We think she is FABULOUS:

New Math or What makes a breeder?

Someone was interested in Tux, one of our available male puppies.

She requested more information and a contract, through a friend.
So, because of the friendship, we sent everything on, without first speaking with her.
YES, THAT WAS OUR MISTAKE!
But every now and then, we go back to believing that everyone has the breed's best interest at heart and that they are truthful and are exactly how they represent themselves.  Time to throw those darn rose-colored glasses out again.  It's just that they seem to creep back in, because we want to believe the best in people.

Here is what happened.
Friend K:  I want to breed Havanese Puppy who is just 16 months old to a bitch owned by my friend 'D' long time breeder.  In fact she might want to breed a couple of her girls to him.
Us (OK, ME):  No.  Remember that contract?   Nobody gets bred until they pass all of their OFFAs, which means that he must be over 2.
K:  OK, just thought I'd ask.  My friend D saw Tux on your facebook and is really interested.  Please send her information and a contract. (she included her email)
Me:  OK, will do.
I sent all of Tux's information and a contract, and a nice note in an email.

In the mean time, I looked up D's website.
Shortly after sending the contract, we received this email response from her:

Thank-you Dave,
I think the pup is very cute  from what I can see and has possibilities, but as a 16 year breeder and handler of Havanese I think your contract is all one sided  to you and has nothing to offer the buyer.  That you retain total breeding control over the dog , not even guaranteeing that a finished OFA  CH. bitch would  be approved by you and not allowing  the same curtsey of any bitch you would bring to the stud to be approved by the buyer, again all in your favor.
You have the right according to your contract never to allow  the buyer to  use their dog at stud if you choose to do so .I  would not  want to buy a show -breeding dog from you if I could never breed him.

Thanks  for your time,
D  
I have deleted the rest of her name.  Why I am 'protecting' her identity, I don't know.  High road, I guess.

Now, let us return to her website: 
About a half dozen 'show dogs' listed and several puppies.  On their puppy page they advertise: 

"They are all AKC registered from health tested parents."

Well this is true, sort of.  Some of the parents have Eyes and Patellas, some have Heart and Hips, some have Elbows and Baer.  None have more that 3 tests, and nothing consistent.  

Someone who has a 'Music Ministry' on their website would never deceive anyone would they?   My ex's family were super religious, but when it came to making money, it was 'anything goes.'  And I have run into that more than once, in the dog show world. 

In her email, D says, that she is a 16 year breeder and handler of Havanese.  Well, according to her website, the dog that she has listed as her first Havanese was born in June 2003, making him only 11 1/2 years old, and a male.  Owning a male does not make one a breeder.  Let's just play with this a bit, since Dave wouldn't let me publish the math on another breeder who, in her young life, had bred something like 35 litters, making her a fetus when the first one was bred, if all generations were health certified prior to breeding, but I can't go there.  

Back to D.  Her male is 11 1/2.  He did not turn 2 until June 2005, which means the earliest he should have been bred was July 2005.  But again, when did she get a female?  Let's give her the benefit of the doubt and say that someone sold her a Champion health tested bitch (not listed on her website), in season, and she bred in July 2005.  She would not be a breeder until that time, making her a breeder of Havanese for 9 1/2 years, NOT 16. 

So far, this woman has wanted to breed to one of my males, and has insulted me and my contract, and LIED to us, AND I STILL DON'T KNOW HER LAST NAME OR RECOGNIZE ANY DOGS OR KENNEL NAMES IN HER PEDIGREES. 

Now to what she says about our puppy contract. 
Why on earth would anyone buy a male show dog if they didn't have the option of breeding him later?
She has skimmed the contract and made assumptions.  

Here is my response to her, which was cc'd to both owners of the underage stud that she wanted to use:
Dxxxxx,
It is not our intent to prevent a puppy buyer from breeding the dog.  If it was, why would anyone buy a dog on that kind of contract?  It is only our intent to do what we can to ensure that only the healthiest possible dogs are bred to improve the breed.  We do not just breed to produce puppies. 

What our contract does say is:  As long as he has his championship and passes all of his health testing at the levels stated in the contract, he can be bred to pretty much any bitch who has done the same.  All health testing cannot be completed until a dog reaches the age of 24 months, therefore, he/she shall not be bred until all of the results are received from OFFA.  

Regarding breeding a bitch that we own or co-own to a co-owned stud dog of our breeding: 
It is our bloodline!  
If we were to bring a bitch that we own or co-own to that dog for use at stud, there is no reason that we must ask anyone which of our dogs we can or cannot use. 

The requirement of written justification, to the buyer, as to why we would disapprove of a particular breeding is only for their benefit.  It is two-fold protection.  It is a safety double check to ensure that the bitch or stud does indeed have all of their health testing, and it prevents us from 'just saying no' without a reason.  We would have to give the buyer a reason in writing as to why we would not approve a particular breeding.  In addition to the requirements for mates stated in the contract, perhaps we know something about that particular dog or line that you may not.  For example a particular top winning stud dog throws a lot of bite and dentition issues.  Do they advertise it?  Of course not.  He was being heavily used for a while and we started seeing a lot of that problem in puppies and dogs in the ring.  When one of our puppy people wanted to breed her bitch to him, we told her what we had been seeing.  She asked the owner of the stud dog as well as contacted several people who had dogs sired by him.  For the most part, they admitted, that yes a lot of the puppies in their litters had some dentition or bite problem.  Nobody puts it all together until you have someone who sees multiple puppies with the same problems, out of different bitches, sired by the same stud.  The individuals thought it must have just been their bitch, or just a bad match, until they realize that there was pattern.

It is not our intent to keep someone from selling stud services.  It is our intent to help improve the lines.  If a bitch or dog has not passed their OFFA health certifications and has not proven themselves in the show ring then it is our belief that they should not be bred.  That said, there may be extenuating circumstances that might allow for a bitch or a dog who is not a champion to be bred, but they would still have to have passed all of our required OFFA testing.  There are very, very, very few reasons that a male would be bred before they were old enough to have all of their official OFFA testing, there is no reason that a female should. 

On your website, you advertise your puppies as having  'health tested' parents.  I just checked through the OFFA website and none of the dogs listed on your 'show dog' page have enough health testing for a CHIC, let alone the health testing that we require.  I understand that BAER is difficult to get.  We have to drive 3 to 4 hours for BAER testing so wait for it to be offered with health clinics at shows.  Everything else is easily accessible anywhere in the US or Canada, and if a dog is to be bred, it must be done.

Our health guarantee goes to the age of 2 1/2 years to provide adequate time to pass his OFFAs, and allow him to be bred at the earliest age.  If he does not pass his OFFAs as stated in the contract, he may be returned for a replacement, show quality, dog. 

Multiple Bests in Show have been won with dogs of our breeding.  We have won multiple Best of Breed at National as well as Regional Specialties, and numerous other National Sweepstakes wins, and other top placements.  So obviously we are doing something right, and the people who have puppies from us don't seem to have complaints.  

You say that you have been a Havanese breeder and Handler for 16 years, yet your website says that Gabe was your first Havanese.  His birth date is listed as June 1, 2003, which means that he could not be shown until almost 2004, and should not have been bred until at least July 2005.  By my calculations, he is only 11 1/2 years old at this time.   Owning a male does not make one a breeder. 

I do find it almost comical when we receive a note like yours about our contract.  Then a year or so later, sometimes sooner, we find out that the person has copied many parts of our contract, sometimes verbatim.  

Also, if I spend this much time on a response I usually know the person's last name.  Since we are extremely proud of what we have accomplished, our names, first and last, are available on our website, our emails, our business cards, our blog, and in all advertisements.

Thank you for your interest in our dogs, but due to your lack of commitment to the health of this breed, we will not be able to reach an agreement for a puppy purchase or stud service to our dogs.

Sincerely,
Darlene and David Scheiris 


TOO HARSH?  I THINK NOT.
Why am I talking about this now?  BECAUSE SHE WILL, and I just want the facts out there.  
Not only whatever this Music Ministry, "16 Year" Havanese breeder, who neither Dave or I have ever heard of, might say. 

This is another example of why everyone, whether shopping for pet or show, needs to do their homework.  D had minor misspellings in some of her dog's names on her website, and I had to put together her show photos, with the show results (it takes skills to find show results from 10 years ago), then with the AKC site and OFFA to find the truth.

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

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 !!!!

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.

Help us name this boy.  (now called Sizzle)
He is FABULOUS!!!

OK, sorry, for so copious use of 'awesome' and 'fabulous.'  I feel like I am on the Bachelor or something.  How can everything be this fabulous?  But we are really pleased with these litters.

A BIS melding of Roché and a Desi daughter.  Just as fabulous as the litter from Roché daughter Choco, bred to Desi.
