"del Adora Havanese" is owned by Rita Marsh. Rita began her endeavor after she saw two (2) small Havanese puppies at an art show in Columbus, Ohio. She fell in love with one look. She had to have a Havanese and it had to be show quality. The next step was the purchase. Where do you go to find the best of the best? For her it was straight to the AKC site. Her first thought was to find an AKC recommended breeder to begin her search. She had been involved with showing many years ago in the German Shepherd breed. Big difference she thought!
She chose her Breeders, there were two, that co-owned the litter. She had seen their web site and the picture of the puppy she just knew she couldn't live without. Today his call name is "Cosmo". He made his Championship by the age of 10 months old and then went on to win a Best in Specialty Show in Michigan. And, Rita had the privilege of being the handler. What a thrill! Since then he has attained his Grand Championship and a Group 2 while being shown by his handler, Mr. Tim Foley. Tim is located just seven miles from her home which allows her to have Cosmo or any of her six Show Havanese back home after the shows. She attended 99.9% of the shows that Cosmo participated in with Tim. It was such a thrill watching the two of them, and watching the dogs she loves win. Rita, took Cosmo to "The Eukanuba Nationals" in December, 2010 in Palm Beach, CA. This show was by invitation only. Cosmo was expertly handled by Mrs. Charlotte Ventura of California and Rita. What a thrill to be there and participate in this show! This was the ultimate of shows.
