Javi and Oreo (my Papillon) play a little differently but Javi has adjusted wonderfully to it. My breeder thinks that Papillons tend to play with more "gusto" then her Havanese. I find that to be true at least in the case of Oreo and Javi...granted it has only been a week. However, Oreo's play is much more quick and fierce and at first it was a bit intimidating with Javi. Oreo would growl and bark, grab his ball and run at and away from Javi. I think Javi was used to more of a gentle wrestle and romp and chase. At first, Javi would just plop down and look like what the heck has gotten into this other dog but now he chases after Oreo just fine. Oreo is super quick and will get away and doesn't really give the ball to Javi...at least until Javi plops down and then Oreo will roll the ball to him and bark...and it all starts over again. Oreo isn't much of a wrestler...he likes to chase and run away all the while squeaking a ball in his mouth.It's so much nicer having more than one dog, isn't it; I got Cuba as a companion to my Coton de Tulear, Tycho, after my first Coton, Pamba died tragically young. Tychy was 7 at the time I got Cuba, having had a few years on his own, and has thrived on having another dog in his little life; I do hope your papillon is happy - I have a friend with another Coton (the mother, in fact, of Pamba) who recently acquired a French Bulldog; I'm not sure it's good casting, honestly. I think the way dogs play together is important to get right and some dogs just play differently. At a class once when he was about two years old Tycho played - or rather tried to play - with a pug; but the pug's idea of play was to move off to a bit of a distance and then hurtle at Tycho and ram into his side. Tycho just sat down and refused point blank to play with this little tank. But he and Cuba run-like-hell together, and wrestle and hurtle about side by side and it works beautifully. I should have thought a papillon and a Havanese would be good together. I do hope that that is what you have found to be the case.
So adorable 0Hello I am Marcia from Tennessee and Atlanta. This is Kosmo and he is 4 months old. I brought him home at nine weeks and he is from a Georgia breeder.
Kosmos is my perfect canine match. He is a comedian and ironic. Example: He was playing with a chew toy and I was reaching over to make it squeak for him. I said, "Kosmo, it is too bad you don't have fingers like me to make your toy squeak. He squinted (as pictured) and between two second pauses made the toy go "Squeek, squeak, squeak" with his teeth.
Happily, he is biting human mammas wrists less at this developmental stage.>
Duke's nose is already looking lots better!Hello! My Name is Ariella, Ariey is my name for short.
Duke is my doggie, and Myself and my other half brought him home on April 2nd when he was 9 weeks old.
Duke however is not full Havanese, he is a HAVAPOO. His dominate jean is Havanese and he is a bundle of energy.
We live in Alberta, Canada. Duke is a spring puppy so come October/November he will be in for a culture shock when it dumps buckets of snow and the temperature plummets!
Here is a bunch of pictures of Duke, and as you notice.. yes we did have a grooming mishap he was shaved on the snout.. but it will grow back! I have learned so much and got the best advice from this forum, I'm a new dog owner and this is all new to myself and Duke!! Thanks to everyone that has already have me some solid advice, the tips and tricks I'm learning are creating a wonderful little dog!
