Cool Nose bumps!

Since Molly and I don't ever get to see other Havanese cuties, I'm just wondering if this thing she does is a Hav trait or if it's just a Molly-ism...

When she's being affectionate or checking out a new cookie or toy, she does this cute little nose bump thing.

She just gently pushes with her nose...on my hand, on a cookie, on a toy, sometimes on my cheek.

Any other nose-bumpers out there?

Maureen and Molly

Reece does this everyday. He nudges me with his nose if he has been in another room, and wants me to know he is back. And he does it right after he lays under my desk to let me know he is there. My other two don't do this.

Peace, Love & Havanese

Riley does this too. Most of his nose bumps are like Paige's Reece, just letting me know he is their. Then sometimes when I ask him for a kiss and he is not in the mood he will bump me real fast with his nose LOL.

Dora does this on occasion. This is how she does her touch but when she really wants something she walks up and paws you and if you aren't paying attention (say sleeping) it is your face! Just hope I didn't just clip her nails when it happens!

Beamer always does the nose bump. When he is done chewing on chew or whatever, he will come to me and just tap his nose on a leg or a foot, then move one.. lol

Sounds like Molly is normal Hav!! My three all do the nose bump thing, sometimes if I am sleeping they do the nose bump and then lick my nose. But any new toys, they bump, I think it is like us looking closely,. or touching something we like, or want attention from.
Now Molly will get used to other Havs as soon as this spring playdate happens!!

Squirt does the nose bump thing but not to people. If I give her a treat or a toy or a chew, she will take it to her bed, lay it down and then nose bump it for a couple of minutes. We think she is trying to bury it with her nose.

Laurie--

You can't imagine how much we're looking forward to meeting some other Havs...and their wonderful people!

So many of the things Molly does are described in the literature, but getting to see her interact with her buds will be absolutely great! By gosh, I'm starting to think she's..."normal"!

AND, I can't wait to meet all of you!

Well I can attest to the fact that the Havs are great - and their parents are even better!
