All our Havanese puppies are born and raised right in our home
(right next to my computer to be exact!) where they receive
loving attention and become properly socialized so that they will be accustomed to regular family life, kids, and other pets.
the joyous wonder pup Bumblebeeacres Pendragon (Our Howl)!
11 & 13 weeks and 5 1/2 months
absolute joy, Howl is staying here at Bumblebeeacres and will
take on the show world when he's 6 months, so look out!
1st weekend out at AKC shows he took Winner's Dog & Best
Opposite both days, way to go Howl!!! He now has 3 pts. to his AKC Championship title.
(my lovely daughter) & Howl make an awesome team in the
show ring. Together, against stiff competition, they won the
title "Grand Champion Junior Showmanship 2006" at
the McHenry County fair 4H Dog Show.
& Howl will also be going down state to Springfield, Illinois
at the end of August 2006 to represent our county at the State
Fair Dog Show. This is where all the winners of each county
get together to compete for the Illinois State title of
Champion Junior Showmanship 2006".
is the 2nd year in a row that Samantha will be competing at
the State level. Last year she teamed up with Howl's sire,
Romeo. It's very exciting to see Howl following in his Father's
Samantha & Howl win
Reserve Grand Champion Junior Handler State Of Illinois 2006!
Howl is back on the prowl! On April 5, 2008 Howl placed 1st in his class at the AKC dog show in Dekalb, IL.
Samantha and Howl are teaming back up for 2008 AKC and 4H shows.
What are Brindle colored Havanese???
Brindle colored Havanese have a classic mask or partial dark mask, tail and dorsal stripe, they have stripped color markings as puppies and under their adult coat with black hair sprinkled throughout. The agouti colored Havanese is a type of Brindle with the difference being that instead of colored stripes the coloring is on each shaft of hair in layers that form rings or bands of color.The golden/red agouti has rings of color when you blow into their fur of cream, black/grey, and red/gold. they have black hair sprinkled throughout the coat.
This color type will undergo a wide color change from puppy throughout it's life. They can lighten until almost cream and than gradually get some of their puppy color back through the years. Unlike the sable coated Havanese where the color is at the tips of the coat, bridles and agoutis retain more of their coloring. Havanese coat color transitions are fascinating and beautiful, and are one of the treasures of owning a Havanese.
The color Havana Brown, or Black Brindle Havanese,
is described as being black as a puppy,
or so dark brown as to appear almost black. However, as the puppy matures the hairs start to change from tip to root into various shades of Tobacco brown, red, and black giving the dog a deep chocolate appearance.The pigment (eye rims, and nose) of the Havana brown is always black.
The coloring Havana Brown is also known as Black Brindle.
As adults they will be a very dark chocolate color.
The picture below is what the puppy's coat look like close up.
Check out my "Furbabies page" to see an adult Havana brown---his name is Cujo.
Above are 10 day old Havanese puppies.
On the far left is a classic brindle (notice the dark dorsal stripe) this puppy will go through many coat color changes but will never just "creme" or "whiten" out as a sable color puppy would. The middle is most likely a blue although we won't know until weeks, months, possibly years before the color finishes developing---otherwise it may be a Havana brown (aka Black Brindle). The puppy on the far right is a solid black and will keep this color it's entire life.
