Meet Teddy

Lightning strikes! We (Momi, Popi, and Ricky)were on our usual evening walk tonight and met our neighbor walking her spunky Shizpoo, Max. She said, "have you met the other Havanese who lives here?" Our community is 1800 homes with around 1000 dogs on about 100 acres but being captain of the Dog Owners Group, I thought i knew about most of the dogs who live here. I was gob-smacked flabbergasted! "Where?" I asked. The neighbor said about two blocks ahead of you. I put Ricky and Momi into "jog mode" and off we went in pursuit. After a few minutes of breathless "fast walking" I spotted them a half block ahead and there was no doubt in my mind. My dog! There was a dog who appeared to be @krandall 's KODI's identical twin brother. (Momi)(Popi)(Ricky Ricardo). I hailed them from a half block and told them wait up or else I was going to need CPR!

And we met Teddy. He is a 3 y.o., 13 pound male. He is completely white except fro a totally black head and ears (I know, Kodi has some black on his body too but they look very similar). Teddy's body was in a longish puppy cut with his head left natural. That cut worked on him. His coat is wavy unlike Ricky who has a straight coat. Ricky wanted to engage immediately for some ruff and tumble play time. Ricky towered over him at 15 pounds and a full coat. Teddy was friendly, accepting treats from me, but a bit shy with a precocious Ricky. They told me Teddy is a chow hound like Ricky so he would be easy to train. The more difficult task would be to train his parents.

Teddy's parents are youngsters, meaning they are under 65 and still employed. They said Teddy stays at home by himself during the day until one of them gets off work at 3 pm (teacher?). Therefore, Teddy is not comfortable with his socialization skills yet, especially around other dogs. Teddy and his family have lived in our community for a year now but live on the far side of the development and said it is rare for them to venture on our side during the evening, and we don't see them in the morning when we walk on their side of the development because they have already gone to work.

We exchanged contact information and vowed to get together soon, but they needed to get moving since it was starting to get dark and they had over a mile to travel to get home. Unfortunately, I didn't have a camera with me and don't have photos, YET. But they will be coming and in the meantime, just visualize a mini-Kodi!

(Ricky gives Teddy two paws up, WAY UP and looks forward to teaching him some of his "tricks!" )

Lightning Strikes Everywhere!

I had never seen any other Havs around me. In fact Skye was the first real, live Hav I ever saw!

Saturday we went in to Petco for Skye's Star Puppy evaluation. There was a Puppy Level 1 class just finishing up their first meeting. I thought I saw a Hav! After their class finished up I talked to the owner. Sure enough it was a 14 week old Hav puppy. Come to find out she is from the same breeder, but not from either of Skye's parents. Maisey is a little cutie, but not at all like Skye. I remember our first class, Skye was tugging at the end of his leash wanting to meet every dog and every person in the room. Maisey seemed quite content to stand between her owner's feet and just watch the activity around her.

We finally did get a picture together. Me holding Skye back and the trainer luring Maisey closer to Skye for the pic.

Here's a photo of Kodi and Willow, who I believe was from the last litter between Kodi's sire, Posh and dam, Razzle. They made a LOT of this model!!! (Kodi, obviously, is the taller one, but they looked a LOT alike!!!)

There's a rumor someone else in my community, population 50K, owns a Havi. 25K are university students so the locals are 25K.

I'm often asked about her breed. Although, I met a new comer from Seattle who right away recognized Patti was a Havanese who said he had a Havi-Bichon mix.

I've noticed there seems to be a number of Havi's with black heads and white bodies or black and white spotted bodies. Are there Havi's with all white heads and black bodies?
