anyone from upstate south carolina

Happy New Year!

I have yet to find anyone with a havanese living near me. Most people don't even know the breed. They don't know what they're missing.
Anyone out there from upstate S.C. ?

Dianne...

I'm from Oregon, and although the Havanese are growing in numbers here, I still get people who say.."It's a Hava-WHAT?"...

Dianne, wish I could say I was closer - central NJ is just not that close!! Cause we have lots in the tri state area who come for playdates to my house. Maybe this spring you should plan a road trip up north????

Hi Dianne! Wish I lived closer too. But I run into the same "hava-what" here where I live in southern AZ. I think there may be 10 Havanese in my city of a mil people and now I'll have 2 of them. One day I took Bonnie to preschool to pick my DD up from the playground. The teacher (a dog lover) said, "Oh, what a cute dog! What kind is she?" I said, "A Havanese." "WHAT kind of dog is [I]that[I]?" she says. Now, was I just annoyed by her 'tude or the constant questions people ask or was I PMSing? I dunno. But I held Bonnie up and said, "It's THIS!"

Not from SC, either. But wanted to say Hi
We also get funny looks when people ask what Cooper is. Most think he's a shih tu. someone asked me at petsmart Sat. if he was a malti-poo

Welcome to the forum, Dianne.

I think everyone has probably gotten the "Hava-what" or they are trying to figure out what two dogs were used to create it. When we were on Cape Cod this summer, I was surprised at how many people actually knew what they were and were so happy to see them up close and personal.

I get this combo questions also. During one visit a lady actualy asked if Lilly was a Havanese or a Bichon Frise I was FLOORED no one has ever even heard of a Havanese. She had a Frise so I guess she had done her research. But she did miss out on the BEST breed the Havanese. oops her bad.
