Default a havanese that hunts?

The other day I was outside with our brittany trying to train him to retrieve. Our 4 year old havanese was outside with us too. The havanese follows our brittany cash all over, trying to keep up, he can only stay on the driveway because the snow is so deep. I tucked my toy I have wrapped with a pheasant feather just on the edge of the driveway to let cash find it. The havanese ran to that side of the driveway first and stopped, lifted his front leg and turned his head sideways and looked at me. Cash ran over and went on point, our havanese finally ran over to me and looked back at cash on point and ran back and stood next to cash and went on point again. I wish I had a camera right then. I play a game with cash trying to teach him to retrieve, Our havanese wanted in on the game too, and would try to get to the retrieving dummy first. I had to put a halt to that, so I just let them both play outside for a bit. My wife named our 2 havanese after cuban cigars because the havanese are originally from cuba. The white one is "cohiba" he is 11 years old, the brown one who went on point is "bolivar" or boli for short. His head is cocked to the side in this picture similar to when he went on point.

The genes run so deep, you never know where they will show up. What do they say, your havanese shares 98% with the wolf? What a neat show!

Dean,
In my other dog post, I told you guys my wife brushes those dogs literally every day. These are "her kids" those dogs really have it made, man she takes good care of them. It was funny watching him point that feather, after he saw cash, he just did it again, he is really cash's buddy, he would ride on his back if I strapped him on and go hunting in the woods and have a blast. We used to take the white havanese on a harley I had and put "doggles" on him he would sit in a front pack I would wear and he could see better that way. The white dog we call "king tut", he rules the roost, he will play with boli, and wrestle around a lot. Cash is afraid of him he always approaches with caution

Mike,
I remember reading that 98% somewhere, maybe a dog food commercial? It really was a show watching those 2. A picture or movie clip would of been something else, watching him point either time
