Puppy Updates

Show versus pet/companion puppies are an educated guess with conformation evaluation starting at eight weeks.

Pet/companion quality does not mean that a puppy is inferior in health or disposition. Not all potential show quality puppies end up in show homes. Some are placed as pet/companions with a spay neuter agreement and limited AKC registration.

Occasionally, puppies or adults are available to carefully selected homes. If we can help you, please fill out the questionnaire and then we can interview each other by phone.

Vet check, current immunizations & health guarantee.

Happy 9th Birthday Tillee!

Thank you Peggy Baird for providing such
a wonderful home for her!

Letter from Peggy

It's December 14th, so bear with me…and share with me….. the joy of having a "marvelously middle aged" Havanese...  

Today I want to acknowledge the 9th birthday of Tillee, our first Havanese.  
 
Queen of the Household;
Patient Grand Mom to 3 precious litters of Havanese and 3 pitifully-furless grandchildren of ours (who are fully loved despite their naked condition);  

Greeter of all who enter our Home;
Therapist to those in need of a hug, a listening ear, a kiss or better yet, a good scrubbing; 
Retired Flyball Dog who still BEGS to chase and jump and tug - providing endless energy-burning entertainment for the pitifully-furless grandchildren; 

Tender footed Girlie-Girl who chooses carefully, if she must, to step between the raindrops and around the puddles;
Fearsome chewer of all things crunchy, crackly and sometimes stinky; 
Shredder of paper and cartons and tissues;
Owner and warmer of all sofa-sitting laps; 
Teacher of manners and gentle entertainer of furbabies all;
Agility Dog extraordinaire, who was halted in her professional career by her most tender Girlie-Girl feet, but has not let that prevent her from bounding effortlessly onto beds, chairs, sofas and the occasional table (should there be the opportunity for unobserved snacking);

"down, roll over, wave, big speak, little speak, dance, jump, over, through"  all done with a joy and energy that is difficult to match…;

Walker (or Peeker) who stands so straight on her hind legs that she looks like a small child;

Yard Sniffer magnificent - yet one of the rare Havanese who has never seen a squirrel ( for lack of looking I suppose…);

Snow Bounder;
Leaf Cruncher;
Proud yet Tolerant Pack Leader;
Forgiver;
Lover;
And Holder of My Heart

We have been so blessed to have this beautiful spirit in our midst.  On this 9th birthday (where did the time go ? ), as I run my fingers through her silky fur and look into eyes that seem so timeless, I am reminded that she is in those years (what I hope and pray will be  those middle years )  and that I will not have her with me forever -    to make me laugh and to share snuggles.     As my mind travels from my husband's roundtrip marathon from Philly to Arizona and back with a tiny dark-eyed ball of fuzz…. through 9 years of life, I realize that "joy" bounded through the door that first day - and remains happily sleeping at my feet as I type.

Happy Birthday, Tillee, Bringer of  Joy
