Hi...It's Been Awhile

Password issue and "life" have kept me away for awhile. I just finished doing some catch-up reading of posts. One thing that really stands out in the posts is how the folks on this forum are kind and supportive.

My Lola is growing up and is such a joy to have around. What an awesome breed this is...well technically Lola is a Havana Silk Dog but I'm sure the pleasure of living with them is the same.

We've been training in nose work in addition to our daily living, traveling and visiting friends and family together. Here's a current photo of my little girl in her new vest.

Welcome back! Lola is so pretty! What's the difference between a Havana Silk and a Havanese? I thought the names were interchangeable...

Hi Pauline good to see you back. I think a few of us can relate as a few have been missing from the forum for a while. Hopefully everyone will come back soon. Lola is absolutely beautiful adn looking very sporty in her new vest. Glad you're back.

Lola is so adorable! I think little black dogs look great in purple!

Thank you.

No, the names aren't interchangeable where the breeders and breed registries are concerned. After researching the differences when we chose Lola I discovered the split in the breeds wasn't a particularly pleasant time in their history. Lots of disagreements...to put it mildly.

I ended up with Lola after my husband made some phone calls and had me talk with her breeder. I liked the lady, felt comfortable with why she bred her dogs, her record of health testing, how she raised the pups and her way of approving of homes for them. Havana Silks have their own registry and aren't recognized by AKC.

Thank you, but I'm still confused about the difference between the breeds.
