Our Choices

We feed Fromm exclusively. Why? Your pup can eat any Fromm 4 star food switching daily without tummy upsets. Plus our Havanese are worth it!

Doggie go doo doo? Easy open, longer and stronger, OXO-biodegradable and 100% CANADIAN! These bags are the best. Easy to open, doesn't rip and the right size! Get the scoop!

Grooming 101

Want to see how I get a smooth coat and what equipment I use? I am continually learning and perfecting but I created this video Windows version) and for you Mac apple folks - here's a conversion. - not a professional one, to help you get a head start and perfect your own skill. Got questions? Ask away.

Want to know how to create a bathing machine that will save you time, product and wash your dog better than ever before? Check out Dick and Irma's instructions on how to create your own machine for a fraction of the cost.

Certified Pet First Aid

Walks 'N' Wags Pet First Aid is a recognized National Pet First Aid Certificate course for dog and cat professionals and pet owners. Talemaker Havanese now has that certificate having taken and passed the course.


The Dance No Connect

This is what the mating dance looks like. See the gallery and the video. But when it is time sjhe lets him connect. 


Barney Arrives for a Visit

Leti is over the moon happy to see him but so is everyone else. Here's the gallery. No time to take out any blurry ones.


Elvis Departs: Fun Video Added

Elvis has left the house. :-) He is now on his forever journey. We will miss him. Leti is now footloose and fancy-free. She can go back to driving Ella crazy or help out with the Panda pups. 

We just received great reports from Elvis in his new home. Okay his human gave us the report.

We will have to have a get together with both litters and they can enjoy each other again.

Here's the family photos. This is Gabriella with her grandkids and the video is now here. Here is the gallery just before departure.


Elvis' Last Bath

Elvis was great in the bath. He was great on the table drying.

I actually can't believe it is this time already. Going to miss the Leti pups. What a fabulous crew. Leti and Truffie, you created beautiful pups inside and out. I love it so that we will duplicate this combination.

Today has been extra busy. We had puppy potential people visiting. I had nany groomings. I had Elvis to wash above and still more groomings to do. 

It's quiet with the last one here. Tomorrow he will start his forever journey. I always hope it's the most spectacular journey for each. They all deserve this.

Now the extra pampering of Leti... and she does deserve that so for being so amazing!

Here's a gallery of the bath photos.


Walk on This?

Yes, we really really wanted to go outside but that ground got covered with this clear whitush stuff and I can't run. Shall we tell the humans that this is not what we want? Can they make it vanish?

Yes, they say we need to be exposed to everything but still... Here's a gallery of Icy Times

Sniff Barney won't see the melt we suspect and besides he will have to stay dry and clean for his humans. So last venture here till ?


Afternoon Siesta

Hey, Who's Coming

More Pup Play Going On

More in the Morn


What's a Pup To Do

Doesn't he look so lonely just sitting there but he had Elvis and all the Panda crew as well. Here's a gallery. We have none today as it is simply too dangerous outside and blogs are short due to celebrating. 

Tomorrow will be another short blog as we head off to Pet Expo. Dennis, Tracy and the girls will be here. Then the pups will have baths before departure. Wow...


So Much Fun Indeed

Life is never boring. We are having a blast. On the 26th, Barney will head home and on the 27th Elvis departs leaving Leti to take care of the Panda pups and give Panda a helping hand. This blog will come to a close except for updates. 

Leti, as a first time mom was sensational. I couldn't have asked for a more attentive mom. Hoping she has a girl next time so we can have one hang around for her. I do believe it would make her exceedingly happy. Maybe she can be a pseudo mom to Trouble. We shall see!

Here's the gallery today. The videos will be on the Panda blog. But here is one of her getting mobbed.


4 Times the Charm

We are just about to go out for the 4th time today and all visits have been outside. Aren't we lucky? We have even started to cry at the door to go out. Aren't we smart.

Also check out the gallery with the pups playing with Ozzie. 

Here are a few videos.

Exhausted Play

There are times that we play so hard we fall so fast asleep that even a loud noise doesn't seem to disturb us. Then a dog barks and up they are. Got to laugh. Selective hearing? I know - I just want to sleep but a bark may mean fun or there's trouble to get into. Got to wake up for that.

Here's a few videos:

Late Last Night


Nice Day to Hang Out

Pups had a blast inside, outside and with the extra visitors. They had fun despite that I didn't take a single photo. Sorry. I was cooking for a lot of people, grooming, laundry, brushing out the crew so it is what it is.

Here's one video to get you by.

Down to 2 and next week -26th and 27th Leti will be taking walks and enjoying life!
