Mia finished her championship with all majors. She is now retired and living the good life of ruling our roost. Mia loves to play with kids and will play with them all day. When she does get tired and someone is bugging her, whether her people or other dogs, she gives them a little growl to let them know they better get inline. Mia also loves her tummy rubs. When she wants one, she will roll over on her back and lets you know she wants her tummy rubbed. She is quite opinionated and will definitely let me know that she wants something.
Our local Cascade Havanese Club had our first specialty in August 2016. I decided to show Mia in the Veterans class. She was the oldest dog entered. Mia went Best Veteran in Sweepstakes and went Select Bitch at the Regional Specialty for a 5 point major. It was the first time she had been shown in 8 years.

I call Shasta the mouth from the south. She loves to watch TV and she barks at dogs, cats, cartoons, anything with other animals. She can't be in the room when you watch the Hallmark channel! She loves to take toys apart and may just hold the world record. There isn't a toy she can't take apart! Shasta was shown in AKC and minored out with points. She went Winners Bitch, Best of Winners and Best Puppy in Breed in Albany, Oregon in early 2013 under Judge Barbara Keenan. Shasta produced one litter for us which was very lovely. I decided to go breed more to Cuban in type so I placed her with a good friend.

Sophie is my 1/2 Cuban girl out of Mia x Baxter. She has a thick coat with nice structure. She definitely did not like to show in the ring. She earned her IABCA Int'l & National Puppy Championship at the age of 10 months. She took 4 Best Puppy in Breed and a Puppy Group 2 under Judge Mary Strom-Bernard. She said Sophie was "a very nice representation of the breed".
Sophie is a reserved girl. She will watch and observe you and when she decides you are OK, she will look for your attention. Until then, she sits back and watches. She loves to play fetch and she talks to me just like her mother. She is also loves to pounce and play fetch and take away. She could play all day long! She will sit back and if she wants to wake you up or play with you she runs and pounces on you.You better watch out because she will wake you up suddenly or will cause you to spill your coffee!

I love Cuban dogs! After all, Havanese are the national dog of Cuba. I was so pleased with El Niño that I decided to bring in another Cuban. This time I imported a girl. Niña is petite in size. She is 8 lbs and 9" tall.
Niña came to the states in August 2017 at the age of 7 months. She has a beautiful coat, lovely tail carriage, a beautiful head, and is a big love bug. She is a true lap dog. Nothing makes her happier than being held or laying on her back and getting tummy rubs. She also loves to give kisses. She lets me know if there is anything she hears that I need to be aware of. She is one of those 'rare' Havanese who don't mind getting wet!

Marlo loves people and has a way of squirming her way into your lap. She loves to walk on her hind legs and jumps up and down like a pogo stick. She has a mind of her own but is very lovable.

Sophie has her mothers attitude. She can be stubborn but is very loving.
Ellie Mae loves to play with the other dogs. She is very smart and is a quick learner.
Ellie Mae has started her AKC show career with limited showing. She placed 2nd in her class at the Havanese National Specialty. She went Best of Breed over a nice special at the recent Sammamish dog show for her first win. She went on to earn a Group 3 Owner Handled and a Toy Group 4!
Like her mother Sophie, she earned her IABCA championship at 10 months of age. Marlo was a IABCA multiple Best of Breed winner in both bred by and senior puppy. In addition, she earned one Group 1 and two Group 2 placements in the Bred By group. She earned another Group 1 placement in best puppy.
As a baby puppy, Marlo earned 3 Best of Breeds, two Group 2 placements, and a Group 1 placement which led to a Best Baby Puppy In Show at the Rose City Classic in Portland, OR in 2018 under Judge Mary Strom-Bernard. Marlo earned her AKC championship in 6-1/2 months with limited showing. Marlo earned her grand championship in 3 months.
How would I describe Queen? She has never met a stranger. She loves to play and she loves attention. I had one judge describe her as lively and charming. She also loves food! I have never had a dog so food motivated before.
Queen has started her show career with limited showing in AKC. She has earned both the required majors and is now working on single points for her championship.
