Do all Havanese do this?

Stella's favorite spot to lay is on the top back of the couch. I have no idea how she manages to not fall off when she sleeps but she takes naps up there too. The only other Havanese I've ever been around belongs to a friend of mine in Cleveland and hers does the same thing. Is this common with them? Here's a picture of Stella just settling in for a nap. (P.S. I love the way her tail looks like a pendulum )

Pepper does this too! Sometimes he'll lay behind DH's head so he can lick DH's ear from time to time. It's too cute.

Pablo doesn't do it (yet) but our breeder said pretty much all her 14 Havs like to do that! They think their part cats I guess.

Shelby's favorite, on top of the sofa pillows, which don't look like pillows after she gets done napping.

A lot of Havs do this, as far as I've seen, but Kubrick has never done this. Maybe one day he will.

Lulu and Vinny both do that. The back cushions of our sofa has permanent-like dents in them, lol. We've never had any other breed who did this so maybe it is a havanese thing. On edit I just realized that Lulu is on the back of the sofa in the avatar.

Vinny, Lulu, Gabby and Richie too!

Mollie loves to sit up on the highest section of the couch. I read havanese like to be up high

Hugs and have a Hava day!

Ollie doesn't. He won't get on the furniture at all by himself. My Yorkie did the sinking on the back of the cushions thing just like Shelby and my chihuahua does sleeping in high places thing too. I wonder if Ollie will ever get on furniture by himself? He's almost 8 months now.
