is our first Havanese. When she arrived we were very concerned
about her,so much so that we didn't realize how much we had spoiled
her by our love. We always let her get her own way.. She came with us
everywhere. If there was somewhere where we were told that she
couldn't go then we would not if she could not. Usually people
welcomed us everywhere we went because when they saw her she found a way
straight to their hearts. She is a fantastically an intelligent dog, who
always knows how to behave.
in many shows. Masni showed herself very nicely, so she had very
good results fairly early. Because of this we decided that she could be
taken to the World Show. We went to the Vienna World Show. Masni
was totally calm and I confident as I led her to the ring, but here she
started finding something she didn't like. It was then our turn to go on
the judging table , she was doing what she needed to do very
nicely. The next thing to be judged was movement. Masni
decided that she was unwilling to take even one step. I was
left standing there not knowing what to do and she was just looking at
me with those big black eyes of hers saying "leave me
alone". I will not take one step' and she didn't. From then on
while we were there she was unwilling to walk, she only wanted to be
carried. Very proud of herself that she had again got her own way.
We couldn't be angry with her though, just sympathy. After this,
she repeated this 'joke' to us especially when it would have
been very important for her to win.
she achieved the title of 'Hungarian Champion' we decided that if
she disliked going to shows that much she shouldn't have to go. She is
a very good mother. She loves her babies and hardly ever moves away
from them. We were looking forward to her first litter with great
excitement and could never believe what a beautiful feeling it
would be to see the puppies born. Waiting to see their eyes open and
witness those first trials at standing up..... so very funny.
this first litter Charly was born. He is the most famous of Masni's offspring so far. Charly went to America when he was 1 year old. His litter
brother,Hu. Jr. Champion lost in an auto accident fortunately left
behind some quality Havanese both in America and Hungary.
Today he has
several very famous offspring. Probably the most famous of these is
Torza Rocket by Lejerdell, who is in Australia after becoming an
American Champion. Being the first Havanese in the country. He has
now proudly earned the title of "Australian Champion".
is now close to 7 years of age, her eyes are checked each year. There
has been no sign of cataracts, and the best thing is that her
offspring have had no reported problems either.
Peter and I
are proud of our dogs. Extremely grateful for the friendships and
support from the global Havanese community. What we are trying to do by
giving and receiving good advice has given our efforts great pride from
such a small country as Hungary. We take great pride in contributing to
the future of quality Havanese.
