She’s the boss, and I like it!

By Kevin Jingga

When you think of having a dog as your pet, you would expect yourself to be the master over your companion.

But that’s not the case for Holly. The Havanese full breed is the boss of her owner, Debbie Brown.

“At the moment, she is my boss, I like it, she makes me get out in the morning,” she laughed.

This unique relationship started off last year when Debbie was grieving over the death of her previous pet and was looking for comfort in her single living household.

“I lost my other little one and I thought I needed to find another one when I was ready – one that was hypo-allergenic because I am allergic,” she said.

She went to a Melbourne show, had a look and got in touch with the breeder, which ended up with Holly.

“Havanas have a beautiful nature. They don’t judge you for anything, they just love you and boss you,” she said.

“She is different to my other dog. He was very quiet, like a gentleman, and she’s very ‘voicetrous ‘ and likes to boss me around”.

However, Holly is not only bossy, she is also a tender-hearted creature on the right occasion.

“I was sick for a long time last year and she kind of nursed me,” she said.

This 14-month togetherness created a lot of good memories for Debbie.

“She loves everybody, all dogs all humans, is very easy to toilet trai, and she loves life,” Debbie said.

Havanese are known to be affectionate, responsive, intelligent, playful, companionable and gentle. Their life span varies from 13 to 15 years. They weigh around 4.5 to 7.3 kg and are 23 to 27 cm tall.
