Hi everyone! (better late than never :)

Hi everyone! First let me say thank you to all the wonderful people on the forum for all their wisdom, suggestions and help. I may have joined a couple of years ago and for the most part been silent, but that doesn't mean that I haven't read and enjoyed all the forum has to offer. I've loved learning about these amazing little dogs and picked up some tips and pointers along the way!

I'm LeeAnn. My family and I live in the Boston/MetroWest area of Massachusetts. My husband and I have 3 children, 1 at home and 2 college grads out on their own living and working.
We also have 2 pups. A 12 yr old Bichon named Cubby and Henry our delightful Havanese. Both could not be more loved and adored by all of us. Henry is by far the loving little comedian of our home. He's captured everyone's heart including Cubby's! Henry was born on VALENTINE'S DAY and will be 3 yrs old on Feb 14, 2013!

Here are some pics. Unfortunately Henry had a bad day at the groomer not too long ago. I mistakenly agreed to allow our groomer's new associate to groom Henry…with tearful results. She chopped off so much of Henry's beautiful long silky cinnamon red hair. She even took too much off his face so he doesn't quite look like himself. Our little mopsy haired Henry has turned into an overly coifed Henry…oh well…can't wait for it all to grow back!

Welcome LeeAnn, Cubby and Henry! I think Henry has an absolutely lovely puppy cut! They seem to be super loving brothers! (I hope I'm correct in assuming Cubby is a boy!)

Welcome, LeeAnn, Cubby & Henry!! Stay with us now that you're here! There are quite a few forum members from your area -- you have a playdate in the making, I think!!

They're not my dogs -- I'm their person

Thank you all for the welcome! And yes, dodrop82, Cubby is a male and they are the best of friends. Henry sure has enhanced Cubby's life. We weren't sure about bringing a new dog into our home with, at the time, a 9 yr old Cubby, but it's been great! Cubby is a very quiet laid back couch potato type of bichon so Henry gets him up and playing and he loves it.
It's funny Beau's Mom, I haven't met any other Havanese pups in the almost 3 years we've had Henry (other than his breeder's pups)! Glad to know there are more around

Welcome I'm happy you joined. Cubby has a great name so cute. And Henery still has his beautiful coloring. ( A groomer did that to Maddie one time to ) Do you live on that beautiful Lake? I'm jealous.

Welcome to the three of you. I was from the Metrowest area but have since moved to the Cape and I, too, had, at one point, a Bichon and two Havanese. My Bichon was 12 years old when I got my first Hav, after having lost my Afghan Hound, who was his best friend. A year later I got my second Hav. They were all great friends so I know what you mean.
I don't think Cubby's hair cut looks bad but when you're used to long hair, it can be a shock. Remember, it will grow back. Glad you decided to join us.
