Washington Abodes Havanese
Abodes Havanese is a family residing in the Northwest. Our dogs are our main priority and are spoiled rotten! I, Josie Cook, could tell you all about our daily schedule, dog show record, vet references, genetic studies, and influence, but I would love to share with you the heart of why we do all of this. I do enjoy the dog shows and take pride in my research but my favorite time of the day is sitting on
the couch in the evenings with the family and dogs, eating snacks, and watching HGTV. These dogs fit in perfectly with our family because they just want to be with us and participate in anything we are doing. They are extremely intelligent and super adaptable. When we are watering the garden, they want to be involved and play to their heart's content but as soon as I come inside and plop onto the couch, I can immediately find them piled in my lap. I want to say that I am the dogs’ favorite person, but my parents swear the same thing. I am starting to catch on that they love us all the same and are not sworn to just one person. They love the whole family and especially the kids! Havanese always stay puppies at heart, so most of them are happiest around playful children. Hiking is also a favored activity of ours and I am glad to tell you that the dogs can more than keep up with us for miles and miles because they are a sturdy and hearty breed, which also means they can play with the kids without much worry of injury. In my opinion, Havanese are wonderful companions and are a great family addition.
