Hav or Neezer...which breed nickname do you prefer?

I say Hav because Neezer reminds of me of the phrase "old geezer". What about you?

How can I make this question into a poll?

Well, even though I don't have one yet... I can truly says I like both equally. If I were trying to shorten the name for someone who wasn't all too familiar with the Havanese breed, then I would probably say "Hav." "Neezer" just sounds outright cute. However, "Neezer" does kind of remind me of other word associations. I don't really think of a geezer when I hear it, but I think of a dog with really bad allergies who may be a "sneezer" lol.

My husband always calls Dora, Dora Neezer so it sticks for me too

Hav;

It is hard to explain how to post a poll; you kind of do it accidentally, then you catch on how to post a poll..... I can run a poll for you, if you would like.

If I use a nickname it's alway Hav. I don't really care for Neezer.

Well, there's no point in running a poll now that you started this thread, so don't worry about it! lol
