Bama is so cute! I love her ears! So sorry to hear about her injury but it doesn't show and it certainly doesn't detract from her super cuteness. I live the pic of her on the hotel bed!

Max looks very similar to my Tino in his coloring--makes me think Tino might end up very light. I can't wait to see his color change. I really didn't get the whole color change thing when we got our first Hav, Buster, in 1999. He was a black and white and ended up more like charcoal and silver with lots of salt and pepper areas.

Thanks. The injury is recent and So many pics are before it happened. I try to angle pictures so it doesnt show.

Aww, I'm sure you did feel bad about her ear, but it will probably never be noticeable once the hair grows back out. At least no infection and she wasn't in pain. Their ears are so incredibly thin, it is hard to tell where the ear stops and the hair begins, on Augie at least. Finn's ears are a bit more substantial. Thanks for your story. It will serve as a reminder to the rest of us to double check when we do topknots, whether that was or wasn't what happened. At any rate, your Bama is just darling!

Aw thanks. The vet showed me how to do a proper top knot. I prefer clips now and won't leave something in overnight. Vet also pointed out that she now has an identifying feature. No confusing her with another dog now. ;-) (she is microchipped too of course).

I will have to post a recent pic without her ear hiding under a hoodie.

Here are some pix I took tonight, some of them show her ear. Hope the pics don't upset anyone. The fur will grow back and cover it.
she's sitting under a lamp and there are some christmas lights overhead, which shows the more brown in her fur i guess.

Awwww what a cutie! I totally see the Pom and the Hav. Her ears are so fluffy, no one will notice once her hair grows back.

Poor little girl. That long hair will cover it up very soon I'm sure. She's very cute and, like someone else mentioned, looks so different with her stand-up ears.

We went to the groomer today for a bath and hygienic cut. As we were sitting there waiting I noticed some white on top of her head. Better lighting in there!

Anyway groomer said she feels like a Pom when she holds her...as far as her build goes. But hair is more hav for sure.

She's adorable, and definitely looks like a mix of the two... more Hav-ish coat and the pointy ears and foxy muzzle of a Pom.

...And I agree with everyone else. Once a little hair grows back on that ear, it won't show at all!
