Havanese gets national airtime

I don't know if anyone saw the show "The View" this week but Barbara Walters talked about, and showed pictures of her "Cha Cha" Havanese dog. I wonder now if the breeders will see an increase of Havanese puppy buying since Barbara talked up her "baby".

I saw the show this week. Barbara is always talking about ChaCha and showing her pics on TV. I just got mad when they said all Havs look alike. I went to a dog show today, there were 4 Havs, and none of them looked alike.

PS - that's how I found out about HAVS - I saw them on The View.

You should try to go on the show to "educate" them about the Havanese Breed. I bet they would have you on.
So you saw a Havanese dog on the show, fell in love with the dog and bought one? I wonder now how many more people will do the same things with all of "Cha's Cha's attention.

When I saw ChaCa on the show, I wasn't looking for a dog. I already had 2 large dogs and 5 cats. Then my 16 and 17 yr old dogs died and 2 of my cats. I was really going to get a Papillion, but after researching it, I decided it wasn't what I wanted. Then I remembered seeing that cute little dog on the View. Probably almost a year later I got my first Hav, and then the following year I got my 2nd.

The problem is that most people will see a dog and want it now. That is why there are so many pet shops selling designer mutts for huge amounts of money. If people took the time to research the breeds, they would find the one that fits their lifestyle, and dogs wouldn't end up in shelters.

I must be the only one who never saw pictures of Barbara's Cha Cha. But then I guess I don't watch the View much either.

I've never seen Cha Cha either, but my friends Zsa Zsa sold me on getting a Hav. I'm on a trip right now and staying with my Aunt. She had reservations about me bringing Izzy along. She has had big dogs in the past and her children bring their dogs home. They had not been the best behaved visiters! ANyway, Izzy has renewed her faith in dogs and she just loves her!! We went from being greeted with "I don't want any messes on my carpet" to "oh, go ahead and put her down, she can't hurt anything!" Go Havanese!!

I never seen Cha Cha either, but Barbara has been talking about her for years. There are several Havanese that own celebrities. Seal & Hiedi Klum come to mind immediately, but I know there are a few others as well.

Oliver does look similar to Cha Cha. Cha Cha must be a couple of years old by now. Kodi will be 2 yrs in Nov and I saw Cha Cha way before I got him.
