A Havanese for Valentine’s Day

The photo is of Truffles. A beautiful chocolate Havanese with little heart bows. As you will see in the video also featuring Truffles, she is the perfect example of a Havanese. The hair on her face has never been cut so it is super thick and luxurious. Sometimes I make one single top knot with triple mini scungis or for
Valentine’s Day, I decided to make two pigtails with adorable bows with little hearts. I found these bows in a pet store somewhere, I can’t remember and thought they would be perfect for Truffles. She is completely trained now to lie down with her head flat against the grooming table which permits me to put in the bows without protest or problem.

Truffles has a lovely disposition and is very vivacious! After she is groomed, she loves to fetch her fleece bone and bring it to me wagging her tail and trying to bark at the same time! She is quite the character.

Grooming such a beautiful animal is a privilege and pleasure. Keeping a Havanese in full coat is a labor of love. Her owner purchased a grooming table when I first started to groom her when she was just months old, she is 5 now. Truffles’s owner will pop her on the table a few times a week to brush and comb her thoroughly ( or as thoroughly as she can ) to maintain a mat-free baby. Once she found her rhythm and followed my technique for brushing and combing, the process of maintaining a mat-free Truffles has been a success.

Enjoy Truffles for Valentine’s Day.
