Getting to know your Havanese...

Hi guys,

I am relatively new to this forum. I looked around the site, checked on a couple of havanese here, but still feel that I don't know many of them.

I hope you don't mind sharing one picture of your Hav with a little info about them. I thought it will be nice to see the precious and adorable faces of the adorable fluff-members here. As if creating a little Havanese-Bio thread

Info that can be (but not limited) to share is....

Acquired from:
Favorite toy:
Favorite treat:

To be fair, I will also share..

Some who checked on my intro post, know that I don't have a havanese (hopefully one day), but I have two maltese . Here is one picture of each with a brief info about them:

Fun thread. I'll play!

Name: Picosa's Posh Panache
Age: almost 3 years old, birthday in May
Weight: 8 lbs.
Acquired from: Char Renslowe, Picosa Havanese after about a year of research and meeting local breeders and attending dog shows. I met Posh about four months before I ended up bringing her home to be a part of our family. She was kept as an "in the running" show dog but her breeder decided she was on the small side and didn't want her to have any complications in delivering pups. Yay for responsible breeder!
Nickname(s): Poshy, Boo Boo, Poop stain (my husband's endearing nickname for her), Poochie stamper
Favorite toy: My daughter's Fureal piglet, which she is not supposed to play with...
Favorite treat: Whipped cream, reserved only for her birthday which she gets to eat out of a tiny cup at my mom's coffee house.
Likes: Mom, baby chickens, cats, other dogs, giving kisses to her human siblings, cuddling and rlh at grandma's house.
Dislikes: when big folks reach down to grab her from above. big no no with posh and with me. not a big fan of getting her fur blown dry.
