In fact, Harry even helps Venus with designing her clothing line and her new line, Hari, is named after her ball of fur. It’s true; he really helped her pick out certain colors and patterns for her new line.
Harry also goes along with his tennis star mom Venus to all of her matches, including the U.S. Open, even though it caused a controversial uproar at the time.

Venus said that she has to have her best friend there with her because he does not care whether she wins or loses; he loves her no matter what, and that is important.
In a recent American Express commercial, Harry was Venus’ costar, and he did great. What a cute pup he is! Although he is over ten years old now, he still looks and acts like a puppy and stays in shape by hanging out with mom Venus in the gym while she works out. Many have said that Harry has even jogged along on his own treadmill right next to his famous tennis momma.
Some of Harry’s favorite things to do include chasing squirrels, chewing on rawhide, watching mom play tennis, and sleeping. Lots of sleeping. He has his own bed in mom’s room and sleeps there most nights when she is home. When they are traveling, Venus brings his bed along, but he usually ends up in the bed with mom anyway. Cuddle time is another favorite pastime for Harry. And eating, he loves to eat.

Havanese Dog Name Considerations
The Havanese breed was discovered in Havana, Cuba in the 1700s, hence the name, and has gotten more popular in the past few decades. It took a while for them to become popular in the United States and they were not recognized by the American Kennel Club until 1996. The silky soft long coat and tiny size give new meaning to the name pocket pet, and these little bundles of fuzz have been finding their way into the hearts of superstars for a long time. However, the Havanese coat does require a lot of maintenance due to their wavy coat and undercoat, so you may opt to have your pooch groomed.
This lovable breed comes in many different color combinations such as brown and white, mahogany, fawn, white, red and white, blue, sable, and brindle. Many owners like to decide on their dog’s name according to their coat or eye color so that you can think along those lines for a name as well. Their feisty personality and charming characteristics also give way to some cute names for your Havanese such as Perky or Handsome. With this little charmer, you can pretty much name them anything because they all have their own individual personality traits.
