Kat Chillin'Katsura

Katsura is our only male. He made a sensational splash in the conformation show ring getting his championship in just 4 days, winning a Group 2nd on his third day and completiing his Canadian championship by winning the Toy Group on the 4th day. It doesn't get much better than that! The wait was well worth it. As a youngster, we had a visitor that chomped off his head hair in one bite and we had to wait till it grew back in.

He is also a class act in obedience who remembers eveything he learned. He proved that a few months back by getting his Canine Good Neighbour certification with style. Everyone was smiling to watch him, being as cocky as he is. Kat also enjoys leaping into the swimming pool like none other. Many Havanese will swim, some won't, but we have yet to meet one that jumps in with such wild abandon.

Kat's sired Wasabi's second litter and Fiona's first.
