Lightbulb Def. of Havs

Ok Guys Im going to design some forum shirts.
I had ordered some last year to take to Nationals, but then the people never made them.

SO I want to make fun ones.

Im going to design them like my friend did for her studio. Kori made these, and I thought it would be cute for Havanese. So I need a good definition of a HAV. Something fun and cute.


Loving dedicated loyal companions; shredders; shadows;

I really dont know. I want it to kinda look like a dictionary entry like the shirts.

Then I will put the web addy on the back.

What do yall think? Maybe we can come up with 3 or 4 designs and have a POLL

OOOOOOo, I like it, I like it!! Love the dictionary description a lot.

Here are some words I came up with. Maybe something can come from them.

Smart, comical, affectionate, companions, curious, addictive - can't have just one! Playful, social butterfly, big dog in a small body, the "little dog from Havana", silk dog .....

I like shredder and shadow too.

Oh, yea....I bought some Havanese shirts on-line and the t-shirts were of poor quality, big necks, too long, etc........this would be great and I love the colors.
how about "who wouldn't want a havanese??"

This is great! I love it, Melissa!!! The definition idea is a good one. I can't tell you how often I'm asked, "What's a Havanese?" I'm sure you've seen the Havanese ABC's at:

Perhaps some of those words could be used. But, of course you can't leave out those important ones mentioned above: runslikehell, shredder, and my favorite, shadow

I'm not the creative-type, though I'm sure some out there are. Whatever the design turns out to be, I'll order one in pink, white, black, green, etc. My motto: "When you find something you like that fits, buy one in every color"

Cute! Looks like you have a lot of great adjectives already. Did someone say "companion" or "clown"?

Any chance of getting these in a v-neck style?
