2016 Show Updates
Havana Ball Havanese will be out on the show trail again in 2016 showing some of our bred-bys and a couple of others.

This was the first show of the year and it started with great results!  Amore went winners bitch on Saturday and is now a NEW CHAMPION.  We moved her up to a special on Sunday but no award.

It was baby Ginger's first show and she went Best Baby puppy In Group beating 4 other Havanese and 4 other breeds in Group.  What a way to start Ginger!

This was HBH's first presence at a National Havanese show.  While I did not attend personally, Amore did, and boy she did us proud!

Amore went Select Bitch at both the National and Regional show, as well as one all-breed show.  She was only shown Saturday and Sunday.  At only 15 months old, I am very pleased with how she did.  She picked up 3/4 of her GCH points in the 3 shows.  She was beautifully presented and cared for by Debbi Foust.

This was Ginger's real puppy debut.  We picked up 2 reserve winners bitch so a good start but we will be trying harder for the dark purple winners ribbons next weekend.

Callie joined us to work on finishing her Grand Championship.  She has not been out since she was a puppy.  She won 3 more GCH points on Saturday so only a few left.

Another good weekend, the girls showed well.  Callie picked up a few GCH points this weekend.  Ginger continues her quest for her first points but did get a nice RWB placement on Friday over girls that are much older than her.

Not to much for awards this weekend, but Ginger did get 2nd in the All-breed Puppy Sweeps 6-9 month female class!  She showed really well and some great comments from the judge.  It was great practice as we went reserve again the following day.

This was the first outdoor show of the year.  It was fun with great weather.  My mother came to watch the girls show and they were making her proud.  Callie shown at the breed level by my friend went BOB and then we made the cut in a very competitive toy group.  This breed win gave her the title of Grand Champion.

Ginger finished the weekend getting her first point!

On Saturday she went Best of Opposite over specials and Sunday going Best of Winners for 5 points majors each day, we have a new US Champion!  Now known as AM CH CDN GCH HBH Follow My Heart!   Loved, conditioned and handled by Debbi Foust, she is shown to perfection.

Amore came up to Canada with her handler for the weekend and did so with a bang.  The first day she won Best of Breed and then followed with 2 select bitch placings.  This finished her Canadian Grand Championship.  Amore finished her grand championship only being out 2 weekends in Canada.
