Havanese politicians

Tonight, Ricky and I were on our walkies and we crossed paths with a local, influential politician. This guy makes policy with regards to dogs in our community. He asked me, "is this the famous Ricky Ricardo?" since they had never met before, but he had heard about Ricky. Ricky greeted him and the two of them played together. Ricky charmed Mr. Politician and he was smitten! He went on to confide in me how much he missed his dog who had died of old age a couple of years ago. He wanted to know all about the Havanese breed. He said he had never heard of them before.

I took off Ricky's leash, which is a violation of local codes in that location, and put him through his obedience drills. Mr. Politician rolled his eyes. I did this because I trust Ricky's dependability. Ricky performed flawlessly. Mr. Politician said, "what a beautiful dog and such a good citizen!" but he said this never happened! Ricky banked some points with Mr. Politician tonight. I am very proud of him. He gets an extra cookie at bedtime.

Ricky didn't do anything different than any other Havanese on this list would have done. The Havanese breed is just amazing and I love all of them very much.

Yay, Ricky! "The girls" were out being good Havanese ambassadors tonight too. We went to Lowes, Best Buy and Petco for various errands, and both Pixel and Panda were perfectly behaved, even sitting quietly for a LONG time in Best Buy while we purchased my Christmas present... a new iPhone 7+. These are such wonderful dogs to be able to enjoy in every moment of our lives!

(Kodi stayed home because HE doesn't practice THAT very often, and we thought he should. He was fine too, of course. )

Bowie just loves being a Havanese Ambassador too! I found an Outward Hound sling and since day one have taken him everywhere I go. With the exception of yoga class and work meetings. He spent Black Friday weekend being a big city dog shopping in San Francisco and watched us toast the Union Square Christmas tree from the Starlight Room! The next day he went to the California Academy Of Sciences and got to see two awesome shows in the planetarium and all the different sea creatures in the aquarium. I'm so pleased at how well behaved he is and he just loves all the attention from all the dog lovers! I wouldn't expect anything less from this amazing breed, Moxie was quite the little shopper too, but she had competition as my children were very young when she came into our lives...
