She sure does look like Bella, Karen. I wondered what she might have looked like as a pup....I think I have an idea now.

Welcome and congratulations. Bella is adorable. My havs love the snow too. I feel kind of guilty, because I am so happy it hasn't snowed here, yet. But I love to see them playing in it. That running around like a mad dog is RLH or run like he!!.

Bella is adorable! They are so much fun, these little ones. Enjoy every minute.

Congratulations on your new addition!! She is adorable and Bella suits her perfectly. I made the mistake, or I should say my children taught Kipper, to run when you bend to pick him up. It's like a big game to him. To get him to stop I give attention to my other dog and he comes running to put himself between us. I was NEVER a dog person (gasp I know) I loved cats, my daughter wanted a puppy/dog that she could play with and sleep with, she is allergic and couldn't play with the other dog. I did a lot of research and found a breeder that I was going to to go with....one day I was on petfinder and came across 2 puppies for adoption, about 2 hours from me, Hav's are very rare here and hard to find. My daughter and I took a road trip and ended up bringing him home. He has been the sunshine in my life and is what I look forward to coming home to (my children are in the your not cool phase but he adores me - lol). I can always count on him to make me smile and cheer me up. I hope your family and Bella (and Bennie) have many years of fun and love to come. Welcome to the forum and enjoy all the posts. This is a great place to learn anything you could ever want to learn about these little teddy bears.

Just checking in to say all is going well. We still have lots of work to do but my Sheltie Benny keeps a close eye on Bella and she follows his lead, and they play together easlily. Starting basic obedience tomorrow evening. I hope that will help with her confidence. She still spooks easily but has gotten to the point that she carries her tail over her back most of the time so I can literally see real progress. One month ago when I got her she couldn't go up or down stairs - now she bounces along easily.

Shelties and Havanese are a great together, Mayzie's best girl friend is a sheltie and they play and spin, and play and spin, and have a rip roaring good time!

We had to postpone obedience training while she went through a heat cycle...her last, spaying is booked in two weeks. Despite that Bella's training of US is going quite well. She now has us scheduled to let her out at precisely the right time to avoid most accidents, where to leave some newspaper just in case, when to lift her up to the bed, when to play, and most of all when to provide treats (that walking around on hind legs thing is irresistable). She's still a little hesitant around people but that is coming slowly but surely and the dog who didn't know anything about stairs now zips up and down them like a pro. She and our Sheltie play like crazy and she lets him be the boss, so he's good with that. My husband gets seperation anxiety after a day at work and so she will sit on his lap and reassure him for hours. We are definately hooked on havanese!
