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.



Rheo is getting trained up on high. I asked if I could share this photo. It is SO important tp train your little one in different surroundings. The key is to positively expose, expose, expose. What you put into it early on will make a difference. Do you ever stop learning? Your dog would love the same experience. 


Rheo Update

Hard to believe that our puppies are already 16 weeks old. Rheo is sure a smart, fun little guy. He started puppy class last week and we have a lot to learn, but he sure catches on fast. He is now going on 30 minute walks with big 'brother' Jasper and tries to run much of that time. Playtime with all three dogs is lots of fun to watch. Rheo certainly holds his own. Both Jasper and Kinsey are now playing regularly with him. Luckily all have a good off switch and enjoy long naps together, too.

Rheo is a happy little guy who makes friends wherever he goes.

Hope the rest of the brothers are doing well.



Good Bye Milo

Roxie already misses the pups. That's okay Tchibo is coming back for a visit. It's been fun!

Here is a gallery.

I will tell you, big, small he loves them all!


My Paw On You

These two are having a complete blast. It took Tchibo a bit to start playing, It seems he came from class and was mighty tired but then his parents left and they played and played and played and have been doing the same today.

Here is the gallery.


Rheo Update: 2 Updates Today

Rheo update.

Good Sunday morning from Rheo. We are enjoying a sunny morning for a change on the deck. Saturday we went to sit by the river to listen to some Celtic music. It gave Rheo a chance to experience this different sound, be part of a small friendly crowd, and see some ducks hanging out by and on the river. He very happily said hello to many folks who admired his happy, friendly demeanor and his lovely rich chocolate colour.

Later on at home, it was then fun to see all three dogs engage in some playtime where all three were tugging on the same toy. He can sure hold his own😆

He has also discovered the joy of digging so I have to be very diligent in watching his every move. Might need to get the play pen out, but so far I can redirect him.

He is learning a bit of shaping with a clicker to sit in a box, and is doing well with his sit and down commands with great treats of course. He now walks around the block on leash with me and my old Golden, Kinsey. Jasper has decided that the puppy really is fun and the two of them do zoomies in the yard at full speed. Who knew that these little legs could run so fast!

His coat is great, but hair is getting in his eyes, so may need a tip on how to keep it away from his eyes. Till next time--- Marjolein, Kinsey, Jasper, and Rheo


No Gallery Today

Milo seems to be such a great balanced boy. He uses the pad or outside. He plays with everyone. Roxie is still enjoying him immensely. On Wednesday his brother Tchibo arrives. Now that will be fun seeing their reunion.


Picnic Day

We thought maybe Tuesday was coming so we brought Milo. He was a big hit. He was socializing with every human and dog. He is mighty tuckerered out and we just got home. 

See the gallery when done in the All About Our Dogs blog. It will be up tonight. Lots of photos that I am extracting from my memory stick.


Loving the Momma Time

Roxie and Milo really enjoy each other and its as if to say wow I like this one on one time. 

Here is the gallery.

Milo is a great pup. He's confident, playful and loves to walk over Inula's head. He is so enjoyable!!


Milo Visiting

Milo is here for the week and Tchibo comes next week for a few days while Milo is still here. It's going to be a brothers get together for a few days.

Here is the gallery of Milo after he arrived.

Momma Roxie was and still remains over the moon happy to see him but guess who else was thoroughly delighted - Raven. Even Stormy was excited but Raven oh my gad she was as excited as Roxie. He is such a fun and happy boy. We are going to have fun with him.

Here is a photo of Tchibo who will be joining us next week. It's going to be fun - well it is already!

Unfortunately it is raining yet again. So no outside for the moment.
