Good Afternoon! :)
Welcome to the Havanese Rescue Inc. Newsletter.
As promised, this is Volume II of our June issue and it will hopefully get you caught up on all the events that have already occured this Spring.
As you probably noticed last issue, we added an "Adoption Corner" to the newsletter. Phoebe,who was featured in the last issue, has found her forever home. This issue we have expanded the section to feature two precious Havs that need homes...well in this case three Havs, as two are siblings. :) Please take the time to read their stories. Perhaps you, or someone you know would make the perfect forever home for them.
We have more Fundays to catch you up on, and are so thankful for all the volunteers that make these so successful. You are truly the heart of HRI. We also have a parade to tell you about, an on-line auction, and even have a few photos you might get a kick out of. So sit back with a cup of coffee, and enjoy a little bit of reading about some of our good friends.
GCHC Funday & HRI Fundraiser
"The Grand Canyon Havanese Club sponsored their 2nd annual Fun Day and Fundraiser for HRI on March 16th, 2006 in Phoenix Arizona. There were at least 50 dogs in attendance with their hu-families. Events included a costume contest, trick contest, grooming & clicker demonstrations, and even non-anesthetic teeth cleaning was offered.

The club raised $515.00 for HRI. The event was also one of the stops for The 2006 Universal Havanese Rescue Quilt Project, The Doodad Quilt. Everyone had a wonderful time, enjoying lots of food, prizes, smiles and laughter. And plenty of fur-kid kisses too!" ...Janet Hicks, President, GCHC
Thank you to everyone at the Grand Canyon Havanese Club for their continued support of HRI.You are amazing!!
IHC Spring Fundraiser
Co-operation was the name of the game when the IHC, The Independent Havanese Club, decided to hold their first ever On-line Auction to benefit FOUR completely different charities. Not only were they able to get donations for all four charities, but they came up with a system whereby donors & bidders could even select who their donations went to.
The auction ran from May 6-15, 2006 and was a complete blast for everyone who participated. The IHC's belief that Havanese are cherished pets first and foremost, is most likely what made this wild and wonderful auction work. Funds raised for HRI amounted to $1337.00 A fabulous first showing from an event we hope to participate in for many years to come!!!
DVHC Match Show & Silent Auction
On Saturday, June 17th, 2006, the Delaware Valley Havanese Club held it's Second AKC Sactioned B Match. They turned it into a full day's event by adding "irregular" classes; a club meeting; a Buffet; and topped the day off with a silent auction which raised $627.00 for HRI.

Ebbie hits the Parade Route
"We have the Eagle Fun Days Parade in Eagle, Idaho each year. On June 10th, Northwest Pets, the store where I had my rescue booth, sponsored a March for the Rescues. This year, it was for Greyhound rescue. They had a float for the Greyhounds, and we had maybe 40 dogs of all kinds marching behind. Most of the dogs were dressed up. The kids on the sidelines rushed out to greet us when they saw the dogs. It was a hands on parade in the literal sense. After the parade, we all met at Northwest pets and had a barbecue. We all got bandanas and a big bag of doggie treats. Dale managed to get the HRI logo on my wheels. It really helped, because no one asked what kind of dog Ebbie was. They just wanted to pet and hug her and shake her little paw.
"We had a blast. Sorry I couldn't get a picture while we were parading, but Ebbie was too busy waving at the crowd and being petted by hundreds of little hands. Ebbie made friends with Cricket, and his owner Claire, seen in the picture. Cricket is an 8 month old Havanese. We marched together. Ebbie got more claps by herself than most of the floats we were near did. She loved the attention, and waved her little paw at the crowd! Next year I hope we can bring someone along to take pictures of the actual parade. It was a really great experience!"...Lee Podolan

"This darling little man, Magic, is only 2 years old. He has been dubbed "The Boogie Boy" in his Vermont foster home as he dances and prances wherever he goes. He can be shy & timid around people initially, though he really likes to be nearby. He does not like to be picked up unless he initiates it. He loves scratches and tummy rubs, sleeping with humans etc. He loves being doted on! Magic doesn't mind being groomed, nails clipped teeth cleaned etc.
He prefers to be a shadow and a companion to your daily life. He is very curious, playful, comical and can sometimes be a little full of himself. He adores other dogs. He loves taking walks and will prance and smile the entire time!
Magic currently eats a raw diet, and may not accept anything else. He is happy, healthy and a pleasure to have as a wonderful companion. Magic really needs an individual or family with older children who will be willing to continue building his trust. We are looking for someone to spoil the dickens out of him. He deserves it!" ...Robyn Steward

Adoption Corner 2
"These 9 1/2 year olds are brother & sister and have been together all of their lives. They both love going for walks and playing. Bo-Bo is more outgoing. He likes to patrol his yard and is the clown of the pair. Sassy is quieter and prefers to stay close by. They have lots of love to give, and need a special home where someone will love and cherish both of them.
They are housebroken and know how to use a doggy door. Both are altered, and current on all their shots. Their complete health records are available to a new forever home. They are currently being fostered in California." ...Janet Wahl
