Funny/adorable quirks?

What funny, adorable, or lovable quirks or behaviors does your furbaby have?

We recently inherited a bigger couch, with wide armrests and a wide back. Ceylon, who has always (like many havs) been a climber, LOVES to jump up onto the back of the couch (which is wide enough for him to walk/run/lay on), run back and forth a couple of times, then stop and play in my hair. Literally - he paws at it, then actually tries to roll in it. I think he is trying to pet me! I posted about this before, on the http://www.havaneseforum.com/showthread.php?t=14703 thread, but he keeps doing it and it's SO funny and cute, and I thought it would be great to hear what other people's hav's quirks or adorable things are, so I thought I would start with that

Actually one of my cats does the hair thing when I sit down on the sofa. It is cute knowing they are "petting" you. My dogs have recently started something new. When I pick up the towel to put on the grooming table beside the sofa, they both run into their crates..seriously. No amount of coaxing will get them out..I have not gotten a photo yet.

Bosley likes to bark and spin in circles when I am drying my hair. He will always come running no matter where he is in the house and it always makes me laugh

Whisky is a petter, when she gives you kisses she also so of caresses your face with her paws, it is so cute.

Whisky also plays with her tail like is is a toy, it is pretty long and she will bat at it with her paws.

MoJo has a little squirrel that he carries all over -and gives (or shows it) to anyone who comes to visit. He never squeaks it, just carries it in his mouth so that all you see is the fuzzy tail sticking out the side of his mouth

Whenever Tessa gets a cookie or a treat, she runs around the house crying and whining and trying to find a place to bury it. She tries really hard to bury it under the pillow in either her or Cooper's bed. This can go on for 5 or 10 minutes and then she finally will eat it. She will also do this with her bully sticks. It's really cute. Cooper immediately just gobbles down whatever treat he gets. I think it's because Tessa will try to steal it from him if he doesn't.

it's not a quirk, I think it's anatomy, but I love the way he moves when he plays. it's so stinkin' cute how he paws at things and pounces and hops. always makes me laugh and smile, esp when he plays chase with my big dogs and he's the chaser, and they are the chasee. I really need to get that on video.

perhaps a quirk, I do like how, when he wants to be noticed, he'll nudge me with his nose, as if to say 'hey, I'm over here, pay attention to me'. I think it's equivalent to a human tap on the shoulder. none of my other dogs have done that.

Hello I am new here but i had to join and share our Havastories and experiences. My little Uli is a 2 yr old white havanese. She has so many quirks that whenever i'm with her i just can't stop smiling. For
1) When i am getting her towels and all other supplies to shower here she suddenly goes *puff* and is nowhere in sight. Mostly she hides under the bed and not even a treat can convince her to come out.
2) When i wake up really early (meaning no light outside yet) she stays in bed belly up but God forbids i turn on the light of the bedroom cause she will lift her head and give me a look and a toss of the head so that i turn the light off because "she needs her sleep" Then she rolls again and goes back to sleep. All that changes when i open the door of the fridge though... she will quickly be right next to me
