In 1999, after being without a canine companion for several months I began the search for a perfect dog breed for our family. It seemed I had a virtual laundry list of requirements for our new dog.
An Internet search recommended the Havanese breed. Having never heard of them I went to a
couple of dog shows and was smitten! Kolmar's Cherry
Margarita, "Rita" was the first to join our family. She was
purchased as a "show dog" in 2000. It became evident very
quickly that Rita was not quite the show dog we had hoped.
She did not like the show ring and had several conformational
Through those first embarrassing shows I did meet some wonderful people who would in turn become my mentors. Rita was spayed, and became and official Nanny dog.
Our first Havana Silk Dog, Bydand Impatiens By The Bay, "Lizzie," came to us in 2003 from Bill and Diane Klumb at Bydand. Windy, Ch JIMKA Felicitous By The Bay, joined our family the next year thanks to Kay Rodgers. HSD's are like potato chips... you can't have just one! And so Windy's daughter Marley came to stay, and was joined later by her Cuban cousin Evita. The happy tail continues...Our Havana Silk Dogs are raised in our smoke free home as family pets first and foremost. Breeding health tested, happy, well socialized little Havana Silk Dog puppies is our goal. Please do let us know if you'd like to visit 757.580.3603
|Our First Litter!
||Yes... it does snow in Virginia Beach LOL! not to often, but we do make sure to record it! The dogs LOVE it, and it is a blessed novelty (coming from a girl who came from Northern Wisconsin.) Please note the use of an Ocean Kayak instead of a tobagan... The dog in the photo is Rita sporting her reggae dred locks or "cords"|
