Do you mean the bear rug pose where they look like a stuffed bear rug? Every havanese I know does that not sure if it's unique to the breed but perfectly normal for them. Think there's a couple of pictures on the forum of havanese in this pose I'll see if I can dig some up...

Oscar does it every time he wakes up from a nap or get's out of the crate. He's done it only a few times and very gingerly since being neutered on Wednesday, so I hope that doesn't stop it, because it's the cutest thing and is often the prelude to some tummy rubs.

I love it when they do that. My parents' Bichon did it as well.

Straight out behind is called "Superman", and bent out to the side is "Frog" positions. They have very flexible hips.

When Pepper takes that pose I know he's completely content and comfy. He usually stretches his back legs out when he's chewing on something really fun.
