The National Havanese Specialty Hosted by HCA in Chicago 2015
This year’s Specialty was particularly special because my two granddaughters joined me and were entered in both Junior Showmanship and the Stud Dog class.

To top it off, Bridget, Ch Rockhurst Knockout, won both Best in Sweepstakes and Best of Opposite. She was beautifully handled by Debbi Foust. We all agree it was the best Specialty ever!
