barbara walter's cha cha

how many besides me first learned of the havanese breed from barbara's show "the view"? i wasn't even thinking of getting a dog the first time i saw cha cha. the show was busy and noisey and she just calmly sat there on her own! for some reason i went online and found out what a perfect breed havanese were. the cost was prohibitive but soon did not matter. now i am suffering HMS, which i was exposed to and caught on this forum! anyway how many caught the first bug from seeing cha cha?

I didn't know about Barbara's Havanese until after we got Jasper. Perhaps we should invite her to join the forum. Then she can get MHS too.

Thats how I found out about them too! I love Barbara Walters, always have. When I was a kid I used to love her specials when she would go to the various orphanages. I decided then I would never have my own kids.

But I loved Cha Cha, so I guess if Barbara Walters didnt have a HAV, this forum wouldn't exist!

I always get pissy when people on the big list start moaning about Barbara bringing her dog on the show. How selfish. They dont want the breed to become popular, I do understand its harder to keep them out of puppy mills as popularity grows, its also harder to charge $2500 for a dog who more are breeding. Gasp? Did I say that?!

I didn't hear Barbara had a Hav until I came here! I had already decided it was the right dog for us. Gee, I've never even seen her dog before...tried to do a search since you are talking about it...but I didn't come up with her dog? Just some latin girls... don't search cha cha....

Melissa,
You made me laugh! I will say though that while the breed is getting popular, that doesn't mean the price will drop. Getting a puppy from a breeder that "does it all" will charge a higher price then one that is just putting a male and a female together to sell puppies. In a lot of other breeds, Yorkies for one, pet's sell for $2500.00. Bulldogs sell for $2500.00 also for pets. Now that is getting them from what I would call a reputable breeder though.

Just my two cents. <grin>

The job of looking for a Havanese was done by an assistant and they had to have one "right now". I forgot who they ended up getting it from.

ChaCha started my search for the Havanese too. Big fan of Barbara Walters.
