YoYo earned the title 'Best of Opposite Sex to the Best of Breed' at the very FIRSTAKC/Eukanuba Invitational in Orlando, Florida, December, 2001. Becky Feigh was her handler and Mrs. Lydia C. Hutchinson was the judge. Twenty top-ranking dogs of each breed were invited to attend this show.
The rules have changed slightly, and the top 25 dogs of each breed are now invited each year, as well as any dog who receives his/her championship during the year; shown only in the bred-by-exhibitor class. It is an honor to earn an invitation to this show; and a placement is an even greater honor.
In 2004, for the year ending 2003, YoYo earned the title "Top Producing Havanese Bitch". She gave birth to the most dogs who finished their championship title during 2003. Another honor of which we are very proud.

YoYo's Baby Pictures
Our very first National Specialty Show; Los Angeles, CA, September, 2000. YoYo won first in her class; we were very happy, but didn't have a clue how fantastic that was with such great competition!
Always remember to stop and smell the flowers.
A lovely Spring day just as YoYo turned one year old. The wind picked up and we got the "fat face" picture.
With a wide variety of costumes, YoYo is prepared for any occasion. However, she has never been very fond of her "Carmen Miranda" hat.
Reading YoYo's titles in her name:

RN Rally Novice
Rally is a new sport in AKC dogs. It is similar to obedience, but you can talk to your dog while working the exercises. It's a lot of fun - try it with your dog!
