When you look into your dog's eyes.....

....what does he or she do?

When I stare into Lincoln's eyes, he'll always look away within a few seconds. Either his eyeballs will go off of the side, or he'll turn his head away. I guess that means he's a submissive boy.

But when I stare into Scout's eyes, he'll stare back! And then he'll shove his snout forward and give me a hard kiss on the lips! Definitely the more aggressive of the two!

What do your Havs do?

Caution: I've read that you shouldn't do this with an aggressive dog!

Posh stares lovingly back with the upmost adoration. It's why she's my favorite "baby." Ha! Don't tell my kids.

Kubrick will stare back and look away eventually, but it will take 30 seconds or so. After looking away, though, he usually comes up to me and gives me kisses. It's like he's trying to usurp my alpha role but loves me SO much that then he needs to make sure that I'm okay with the fact that he still tries, LOL.

Oh and just wanted to add that when he's in a loving mood and on my lap he will get up so we are at eye level and stare at me and give me kisses and lots of love. He's just a flirt like that.

Shelby will look at me with those expressive eyes and then give me lots of kisses. Kodi just looks up at me. If I am holding him, he will eventually put his head on my shoulder and just lay there.

Sedona rolls over. Silly girl. She'll look at me and then glance away and look back. She will do what Kubrick does when she's feeling loving. She'll crawl on my lap and stare at me with her head cocked to the side. Steve calls it her baby seal look.
McKenna will stare right back at me for a few seconds and then go in for the kisses. She starts licking my face.

It's funny, they will both look deep into my eyes if it is "Their" choice. But they have different stares and Jasper usually wins the staring contest as Cash will turn away. Jasper will stare us down if he wants something, and I mean stare us down. It's as if to say "hey i'm talking here." If you just happen to catch him in quiet moment he will stare deep into your eyes as if to say I love you, and then kiss you right on the lips.

Cash, looks at you when you are not looking at him. if he is on your lap while watching tv-- he will place his head on your lap,or up on your chest and just melt you with his eyes, once you look at him he may nudge your face with his snout-- but that is because I taught him to touch my nose when I say nose...he will eventually look away, but not until he has melted you to mush.




Missy, Jasper & Cash

Oliver and I just took a nap....his head sharing my pillow. I turned over to face him and he put his nose right on my nose and just gazed in my eyes. He stayed like that for 20 seconds or so. Sometimes he will look right into my eyes for a bit and then go in for the kiss on the lips or nose. My favorite time is mornings sharing a pillow with him. That's when I get those deep, I love you looks.

I get kisses

Ah...I talk to my dogs when I am in the car and in traffic or feeling stressed...even when they are at home!

I call them in my mind and imagine them running up to me and licking me...such a great stress reliever!

I know, I am possessed!

I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!
