Anyone in the Bay Area?

My best friend from high school lives in Oakland and just lost her rescue shih tzu. Now she and her wife are considering getting a puppy in the hopes of having their dog longer than they had their rescue. Their shih tzu was their first dog, so they think they want their puppy to be a shih tzu. I thought that if they met a Havanese they might be interested in a Havanese puppy. Does anyone have a Havanese they could meet? If so, PM me. Thanks! (Also, can anyone speak from personal experience about the differences between a shih tzu and a Havanese? No comments about not caring for the shih tzu face needed. My friend loves that little shih tzu mug!)

I live on the other side of the bay and south. The Northern CA Havanese Club sometimes has playdates which would be great to attend. We have gone to a couple a few years ago across the bay. It was fun meeting all the nice people with their doggies of all different ages.

They currently have no meetings planned- it might be awhile.
The large get together where a lot of owners & dogs show up is usually in the summer (Aug-early Sept.)I have been to those and they are fun.

Heather and I missed each other by about an hour one summer when I first was doing my research about the breed.
Nice group of people.
It's a small world - come to find out mine & Heather's breeders best friend is on the board member of the club too. She is really nice.

The fall meeting/get together with lots of Havs was this past Oct in Tracy.

They do some of their meetings at dog shows- in Fresno & the Woofstock dog show in Vallejo will be in June at the fairgrounds- they generally meet at that one too.

Yo, I grew up in Oakland, live in san leandro (next to Oakland).

and I have a half hav, half shih tzu. he's 7 yrs. old now. Ollie. He's a little chunky, but a very good boy.

You can PM me, and I can shoot you my email address.

Tell your friend, they can meet him any where, just not Arizmendi's, cuz I gave up carbs and I don't a lot of will power.
