People always ask if Brody is a Shih Tzu.

Actually, no one even guesses at Kodi's breed unless they happen to know Havanese. (which happens infrequently, except at trials) Maybe it's because he's got a long coat?


Karen, Kodi, Pixel and Panda
(ARCHMX Starborn Kodak Moment CGC, NTD, BN, PCD, NA, NAJ, CDX-CCH, RE, RLV, RL1X3, RL2X4, RL3X3...
plus Starborn's Picture Perfect & Nauti Herd Compact Flash RN, CGC, NTD, SN-C, RL1)

we get a Shih Tzu a couple times a week, but the Yorkie daily. We are about to get a tee shirt made that says, I am not a Yorkie, but a lovable Hav!

Our girls have been called Shih Tzus, and Yogi, having the cottonier hair, has been called a poodle...

What color is Maya? Augie is a black and tan. As a puppy, we got the Yorkie thing too. After his hair got a bit longer, that ended.

I've gotten Yorkie mix with Milo many times. The time he ran away and the vet tech found him, she thought he was a Yorkie mix. It's probably his coloring.
