"Benson" finished very quickly as a puppy with Group 1sts and numerous other
Group placements as well as multiple Best Puppy in Groups.

"Benson", who is more often called "Boo" than Benson,  came to live with
Lorette at 8 months of age and she has since done all of his training,
conditioning and handling - they took a 3 year break and did some agility
training but after their history creating achievements in the conformation ring,
decided to come back and have some fun this time around!

Lorette and Benson began making breed history in June 2006 when they went
out and won their first
Best In Show - Benson was only the 2nd Havanese in
Canada to achieve this honor and even more of an honor, was the first to be
owner handled to the win! Thank you Mr Rick Glendinning!

On August 5, 2007 "Benson" created breed history for the 2nd time - he and
Lorette attended the Canadian National Specialty in Calgary, AB and came
home with the
Best of Breed in National Specialty Show win! Thank you to Mr.
Carlos Fernandez-Renau (Spain) for this very exciting and most prestigious win!

Right after the National Lorette took him and had all of his health testing while
in Calgary - results are posted below, then Benson and Lorette took a break
from the show ring, relaxed for a little while and then went and played in agility.
Benson loved it but like any true show dog he missed the attention received in
the show ring, so Lorette agreed that it was time to go back.

May 7, 2011 Mr Thomas Alexander has also added his name to this history
making little black and white boy by awarding him his second
Best in Show win!
This was awarded on our very first day back in the ring - what a welcome back!

We aren't sure where this journey will take us, but this time around we are
going to do it our way, the right way - the fun way! Thank you so much for all
the support and advice offered to us from our true & real friends - we are so
lucky to have you in our lives, always watching our backs - this ride is going to
be great!

Benson is now retired after winning the Award of Merit from the Veteran's class
at the Canadian National held in Abbotsford, BC in October 2012.

"Loco" had a fantastic puppy career! He finished his Canadian Championship
very quickly as a Junior puppy, picking up Best of Opposite Sex over Specials.
He also won multiple Best Baby Puppy in Groups before hitting the 'real' ring.

He has continued his winning ways into adulthood now; he took a year off to
grow up and is now coming out to play once more - nothing serious - we just
wanna have fun! :)
