The Rewards of Breeding

Breeding dogs is hard work. A LOT of hard work!! It is a full time job…not a hobby.

But the rewards far outweigh the burdens.

One of the rewards is the friendships I have with my puppy owners. Daily my inbox is full of notes, photos and updates on what they are doing.

This week my “Summer Weather” litter enjoyed their 3rd birthday. They are out Luna and of  These are some photos their families sent me to celebrate!

This is Rainbow. She lives in Washington DC and just got a birthday groom! I love her scarf!

This family has three of my Havanese! Birthday girl, Guillia, is in the front. At right is Valentina and at left is Rosie. Their owner said they are frowning because she just arrived to pick them up from the groomer.

This is Tasha! In the background is her roommate, the pretty cat. I think what Tasha is thinking here is, “You may be higher than me but I have the couch!”

Porsche Is Available!

Note: Porsche has a new home now, in Chicago!

Our sweet puppies from our sports car litter are now 2 1/2 months old! I have made my decision as to who to reserve for show and am now looking for a home for Porsche.

As you can see, he is tri-color…sable brown, black and white. He is extremely outgoing and friendly. Greets everyone he meets with his tail wagging like a windshield wiper! He plays well with our other puppies and adult dogs and is doing great with peeing on a pee pad! He will be great with children and other pets.

Porsche has had two of his DHPP vaccine boosters, is totally dewormed and is registered with AKC. Both his parents have passed all health tests recommended for Havanese and results are posted on the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals website.His sire is a Gold Grand Champion and his dam is a Champion…just a few points shy of Grand Champion!

Send me a note if you’d like to hear more about him.

We Have Puppies!! Two need homes

Sunshine whelped 3 beautiful puppies on February 20. They will be 8 weeks old tomorrow. Time flies when you have puppies! Anyway, we are looking for homes for the two boys, Porsche and Beemer. Puppies are fat and healthy and playing with each other, their mom and their roomates!

This is Beemer. He is a gold sable parti and has amazing eyes. He is also a love bug!

This is little Mercedes. She is currently reserved for the show circuit…assuming she gets to standard.

This is Porche. He loves to sit on my lap. he is a dark sable parti.

Meet Sienna!

Sunshine won’t you come play with me?

Sienna at about 7 weeks.

Sienna’s win in the 4-6 month puppy class. No points…just practice.

 

Sienna is the puppy I kept from my October 2022 litter. She is still all puppy! She loves to play with her housemates and her toys.

Sienna is almost a year old and still working out the show dog program.

We are attending many classes and our favorite teacher, Linda, is easing Sienna into a show career. For quite some time Sienna was not buying it! She just wanted to play with her buddies at home. Dog shows with lots of racket and bigger dogs gave her the willies!

But guess what? Three weeks ago I entered Sienna in some shows in Windsor, Ontario. She won twice and now is 1/3 of the way to her Canadian championship!!

Then, last weekend Sienna took 2nd place in a group of 4 dogs right here in Monroe Michigan. I am ecstatic! More importantly she was loving it! She ran, she jumped, she turned circles! I was so happy for her….the judge not so much or she would have placed 1st. That’s ok.

 

Sienna at 11 months and ready for a grown-up show!

What good is any endeavor if you can’t enjoy the journey?
