(Video) Watch older Hav look out for and mentor pup

On Sunday January 27, Rory and I visited Seattle's K9 Fun Zone Indoor Dog Park for their Yappy Hour, a time when dogs under 25 lbs. can play together.

Rory had hoped to meet Emmie and Benjamin, but was happy to meet the beautiful Diva and her lovely owner Julia (jcbpaisley).

Rory was pretty overwhelmed by the number of dogs but Diva took her under her wing to show her how the big Havs do it. Diva is a confident, energetic, and athletic girl, and social butterfly in that setting, getting along with all the dogs.

Rory's only other puppy playtime (so far) was at Petco which was a mistake on my part and not a good experience for her. Too many dogs of every size are crammed in an area the size of a small bedroom.

This video is for me, a fascinating look at Havanese behavior and interaction. The embed code puts it fairly small here but here is a direct link so you can see it larger and/or full screen.



Sorry we didn't get to meet Emmie and Benjamin; look forward to doing that next week at Emmie's birthday.

Gary and Rory

What a great video Gary! I'm so sorry we didn't meet today; instead, Emmie was at a playdate in Bellevue with her Portuguese Podengo friends, Chico & Pippa, who will be at the bday party next week. Glad you got to meet the amazing Diva and Julia!

OMG Awesome video. Love the your narration and the best part was the end when Rory came up to you - smiling at you, she look so happy.

I'm jealous you have such a nice place to play. It is amazing the Havanese know they belong together. They DO have a different play style than other dogs, I would love to bring Riley to more Havanese only events.

Gary that is so cute! Diva certainly took Rory under her wing. I could watch that forever and Mae woke up from a deep sleep to check the video out, Tim didn't even budge.

I also wish we had a place like that, Timmy would go hang with his buddy Riley all the time! I agree that Havs do have a certain play style, you can see that when we get together at Laurie's. I hope Mae acquires the Havie play style soon, she is like a jumping bean most of the time!

That is so cute! It took me awhile to get used to the way Havanese play. I had my sheltie and pomeranian first and when I got Lilly I thought she was being too rough with Trixi (pomeranian), but then I realized that it is mostly all bluff and bluster. I am continuously learning new things about this breed - they are very interesting dogs to live with!
