Posh used to growl/snap at other dogs when she was on my lap, I think not because she was being "protective" of me but more like she was "claiming" me.
Now that I have established a pack order in my house with me on top...she does not growl or snap ever on my lap at dogs or humans.
Dale once posted about her past history with a pomeranian, I think, who loved Dale as a "favorite bone" vs. the alpha leader. She wasn't going to make this mistake again with Cicero...I really truly think this is what is going on with Mojo. Remember, although he is in an adorable happy havanese body he is still a dog who needs to know you are the leader and that he can take his cue to protect from you, that you can handle the situation, that he doesn't have to.
