Havanese Antics

I'm making up a list and trying to include photos for the cute "havanese" things these dogs do. Such as lying with back legs behind them splayed out, or going nuts with toilet paper, or run like hell.

I know that there are many other often breed specific things these nutty guys do...like licking water off our legs when we shower...or eating one piece of food at a time.

One I should add

And my two after hours of grooming, immediately finding something stinky to roll in and get messy. I guess they don't like their perfumed conditioner...but I do!

If you have photos to include, that would be so great.

I would like to call out Julie with Quincy and his food antics on this one. Does he still seperate his food by color Julie? I LOVE when you told us about that one.

Another interesting one...

My dogs tend to sleep in the same position even if they are on opposite sides of the room. Could be due to temperature...but I find this rather funny.

havanese don't wear hats long

Each year we go to two parades in Long Beach. The Haute Dogs Howl-o-ween parade and the Easter parade. All the dogs wear cute outfits and the profits go to charity. I make adorable outfits because purchased ones cause matts and I am very careful to make hats that won't pull.

Within five seconds the hats are off...they just pull on them. I cut out ear spaces and do everything. They will never win a prize as the cutest part of the costume is the hat. People go nuts at these events.

Check out their site: www.hautedogs.org
and see the parade photos and videos. Usually the people have costumes even more elaborate. One really cute one was a huge spiderweb person with the black pug as the spider.

They even have a blessing of the animals once a year.

LOL Riley will throw his food or water bowl at you when it is empty and he wants something.

How do your havanese tell you they need to go out?

Riki jumps toward the cabinet and hits it near the sink when he wants fresh water. He also does circles near the door when he wants to go out. I hear some dogs ring a bell. Mine were just ringing it to ring it.

Daisy just starts circling and I know I NEED to take her out or she sneaks away trying to go unnoticed. She never leaves my side unless she has potty plans and often that doesn't mean going outside.

I read earlier that some dogs jump at the door or the drapes. Some even bark!

Do all havanese scratch the bed or couch when they get ready to sleep

Mine are actually wearing spots on the couch...at first I thought they were going to pee...but I realized they are pounding down the "dirt" and "leaves" to make a nest to sleep. I have covers now on all the couches, but they still do it to the sheets. I guess this is part of loving a havanese.

Do other breeds do this too? I don't remember our shephards doing this.
