Question Havana Silk Dog - Who has one?

Hey all..

Was just wondering who has or is getting a Havana Silk Dog?

Just curious, as I would love to see some puppy pics of thee guys! Also, I'm entrigued to know if the coat is much easier to maintain than the Havanese coat. (Was and wear?) Although, when Beamer swims and air dries, his coat has turned out great, without any brushing at all! I have never actualy air dryed him after a real bath though...

Thanks!
Ryan

Both Dreamer & Tripp are considered 'Havana Silk' & are registered with the HSDA(per my breeders request because she bred Dreamer). Jax is a rescue Hav so i doubt he is. I do not have any puppy pics of Dream because i got her when she was 6 yrs old.

Tripps coat was a breeze when he was a pup but he going thru the 'blowing coat' stage & he was matting like crazy but it is getting better(he is 15 months old). Dreamers coat is pretty easy to maintain if you groom regularly. WHen its warm out i let them air dry also.

oh boy Ryan, do you really know what can of worms you are opening up with this question???? I don't think either of my boys are HSD--- but so far 10 month old Cash has been wash and wear! (his tail stands higher too- but his legs are short and he is big boned) Jasper is a nightmare to keep mat free.

Nico is registered with HSDAA (as well as with AKC as a Havanese). He was just born this spring and his entire litter was registered. His coat is pretty wash and wear, but he's only 5 months old and still has his puppy coat. Although he rarely has a mat right now, who knows what will happen when he blows coat? I also don't know how he conforms to the HSDAA standard, although I think he's absolutely gorgeous.

Dont ask me what the standards are. I really dont want to know. Legs, tail, ears, muzzle. It all gives me a headache(can you tell i know nothing about showing dogs! ). I just love my babies & I too think they are just gorgeous!!

LoL.. not trying to open any cans of worms or any other sort of creatures... lol

I'm sure there are many Hav owners on here that are considering an HSD for a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th puppy.. lol

Oh yeah... any health issues ever arise for any of your HSD's?

Thanks!

Bacci is an HSD, registered with the HSDAA and also with the AKC as a Havanese. Our breeder suggested we do so since both his parents are HSD's and registered AKC Havanese.

Bacci is 16 weeks old.

You know, you can get a feel what they look like by looking a lot of the dogs here on the site. The difference between the two is a piece of paper and someones opinion.

If a HSD is not a havanese, then how can they be registered as one. Isn't that like registering my lab as a golden retriever.

If one parent is a HSD and one is a Havanese doesn't that make it a mix breed? Just a thought.

Peace, Love & Havanese
