Havanese vs Havana silk

Can any one tell me the real difference. One web site says they are extinct and then there is the HSDAA that says they have the Cuban original. What do you all think.

The Havana Silk Dog was one of the original names of the dog we now call the Havanese.

They are all Havanese.

Oh My Gravy.

Well this will get intense most likely. Its not an easy answer. Some of us think that a certain amount of people tried to split the breed due to political reasons and came up with a swanky name. We have a lot of breeders in the Havanese world who are good and breeding great dogs. The HSDAA claims one minute they split based on health reasons and the next based on body type. Regardless they still show in the Havanese ring, so they must not have too big of a problem being called Havanese.

I consider them a club and you can choose to join them or not, however they have many restrictions and being part of their club means those dogs can not ever breed with the non-club member dogs.

Some people are choosing to only register some of their dogs and not all, which I can think is ONLY for financial reasons, either you believe you are a separate breed or you don't. Keep in mind there are people who think Elvis is alive... and that David Koresh was a god. So different strokes for different folks.
