As an add on to what Tom said, it just so happens that I work with a vet who sees a LOT of Havanese. (her parents even own one because she likes the breed so much!) I asked her if she has EVER had a Havanese in her practice with FUNCTIONAL hip problems before geriatric sort of general "old age all-over" arthritis. She said no. Patellas, for sure, carpus, for sure, shoulders and elbows sometimes. No hips.

OTOH, she treats LOTS of Havanese for thyroid problems and allergies and we don't include thyroid in our required tests for breeding. (although all three of my dogs have been tested and are clear) And unfortunately, allergies are something that are harder for breeders to keep track of let alone do anything about since they tend to show up when the dogs are older.

What a cute pile of puppies! I'm always amazed at the color changes. It's hard to imagine that those almost white puppies will be a dark red! So interesting.

That light color is almost a silver. They have white trim too, and you can really see the difference between the white, and the silverish color. It will be interesting to see when it starts to change. It hasn't started yet.

That's interesting. Denver had silvery patches when he was first born and those patches are now a beautiful red colour (I thought they would fade to white!) - it'll be interesting to see an entire puppy change

The silvery ones just started looking a light "fawn" color today, or at least the first day we've had full sunlight for several days.

I don't know if Pam has had a chance yet. My 103 year old Mom had a small stroke a few weeks back, has been in rehab, and is getting discharged on the 17th, so we've been running wide open with that too. The stroke only influenced the flex of one foot, but she needs assistance to stand, and transfer, so right now, needs help 24/7.

Pam left early this morning to see about getting some furniture for her to go in the next place my Mom will need to stay. We're going to have to put her in Assisted Living until I can convert one of her bathrooms at home into a handicap accessible one.
