Phoebe is my very first Havanese. After 35 years I sold my flower shop and six months later brought her home from Great Falls Montana. Her “professional” name is Roughriders Winnett. She was bred by Kitty Braund who wrote one of the best books about Havanese as well as gained great notoriety for breeding, showing and raising healthy, happy Havanese. Now a sharp 90+ years old, Kitty has been my mentor.

I wouldn’t be where I am today without her kindness and support.Born July 30, 2007, Phoebe still loves to clown around and play with her squeaky toys.



Maxi (Carneys Maximum Return) is a blackparti out of our Phoebe (Roughriders Winnett) and Prince (Los Perritos Heir Apparent).

She has a very sweet disposition and gets along with all our other dogs including our English Shepherd, Meora, who does not get along with too many dogs or people!




This is Marlin. Don’t let her small size deceive you. She can leap to tall places in a single bound!! Marlin (Carneys Grand Slam) is out of my Phoebe and GCH CH Los Perritos Shallowbrook Heir I Am (PJ).

Marli is now retired and plans to live a long, happy life with my daughter in Brooklyn, NY!


This is Potter (CH Bristolwood Carney’s Mischief in MacGregors Garden) I was lucky enough to get Potter from my friend Marcy Skirvin of Bristolwood Havanese. He is a very sweet, loving boy who would like to be my permanent shadow!

Potter became an AKC champion at the young age of 18 months in Goodells, Michigan!




This is Lily, CH Amblers at Carneys Garden Party. She was bred by Kathy Ambler and is one of five champions from the same litter! Three are even grand champions! Lily is our diva. She loves to snuggle but she also carries an air of confidence and grace!




And then we haveĀ  MaggieMaggie (Artwryks at Carneys Paradise Garden) co-owned by myself and Vicki Brunn who is second from the left in the photo. Maggie kicked butt in the show ring as a puppy before she was even six months old. She even took fourth place in her class over about 18 other puppies at the National Havanese Specialty in 2015.

We expected her to continue her awesome successes this Winter, and she did! Maggie became a champion in Kalamazoo Michigan in May, 2016 and is well on her way to becoming a Grand Champion!

Coming up in the ranks are Sawyer and Fern. These two are litter mates out of Lily and Wynmarks General Bradley at LP (Bradley). Sawyer (Carney Amblers Take Me To The River) is on the left and is co owned by Kathy Ambler and myself. Fern is on the right. Born April 2, 2015, Kathy and I have high hopes for these two cuties.




And, not to be outdone…meet our newest addition, Harrison (Sherrex’s Sun Comes to Carneys Garden) who is our newest champion/stud muffin hopeful. Harrison begins his show career in July at 4 months. All shows are for practice only until he is 6 months old on September 23, 2016.
