Question Is there a toy-drive in your Hav?

Do your havanese get excited when getting new toys? Are they toy-driven?

I find a dog with toy drive so much fun Not only that, but it also helps soooo much in training. It actually makes taining sessions so much fun.

My two love them. Sorry, I meant to say: Snowy is crazy about them. With Crystal, it is sometimes the toys that she loves and sometimes "Snowy" that she loves. I made a video of them checking out some new toys

The package they got was a big hit to them ^_^

Love the video. Thanks for sharing. Lucky pups to get that package!! Yes, Cicero loves toys better than anything. He only gets one at a time and gets so excited when I go to the closet where his new ones are stored.

Crystal and Snowy are beautiful.!!!!!

Lily adores her toys, I hope she never outgrows it.

Your video is amazing! I love that you used the Love generation music. The part with your dogs both fetching the wubba together in the water made me so melt it so was cute.

Soooooooooo freaking CUTE!

I wish I could get Gucci to jump in the pool like that, lol.

Dave, I'm impressed and a bit scared to pull out our toy collection, I may have just as much,

Gucci LOVES toys and I will bring her home toys, treats, bones a lot when I go out and run errands because she gets so thrilled when I tell her there is a 'toy' or 'treat' in the bag she starts ripping through them like a kid on Christmas morning,

She also has to inspect every mail and UPS package, since we do quite a bit of our purchases online these days, I doubt she'll ever outgrow the toys

that song always gives me the good cheerful feeling. I thought that it fitted the video and the story behind it. Glad that you liked it too
oh boy, these two are partners in crime; whether it was doing something mischievous OR helping each other by dragging a toy

Cute, cute video Kat! Snowy and Crystal appear to have an awesome life - they ooze joy! Thanks for sharing. Have not had Augie near a pool - have no idea how he would react.

Molly - you have enough toys there, girl????? Geez, Dave, I am going to show my DH that photo so that he will never again make a comment about the number of toys Augie has - he only has a very small fraction of that amount!!! And his favorite one is a small disc of sherpa-like fabric that has been stitched around a squeaker. It fits well in his mouth, works great for tossing down the hall for a game of fetch and only cost $1, so we have several around here. They look like nursing pads of long ago that you would stuff in a nursing bra I have gotten used to seeing them around, but when we first got them, I would take a second look, wondering where THAT came from. He also loves Skineez - as they have squeakers and he can shake the devil out of them. He does get very excited when we bring a new toy in the house though and can hardly contain himself until I get the tags off.
