Smile Newbie says Hi!

Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Pattie. I'm 48 and live in Virginia with my husband, two children, german shepherd and yes, a rabbit.
We're "expecting" our first Havanese soon.
I grew up with shepherds, but have always liked Havanese. And, now that my two legged children won't sit in my lap and snuggle anymore...and my GSD is a little large for that...I decided it was high time I got myself a little Cuban lover! hahaha
We are an active family, horse shows, guitar lessons, hiking, lacrosse...of course for much of this I'm a sideline observer and so my "little man" will be my date.
I work at a progressive school where animals are welcome so he will be able to visit not only in my office, but in classrooms on a regular basis.
Whew! I was only just going to say a quick hi! Sorry for going on...
I've had such a great time using this forum as a resource for my research. Now I can't wait to REALLY participate.

Hi,
My "adoption" is scheduled for mid to late February.
I'm already counting down the days and, just like with my 2-legged kids, buying "supplies". Hahaha

We are bring our puppy home mid February too !!! And yes, my amazon cart is filled daily! And since this is the first dog for the family it is even more exciting. I grew up with German Shepards but never had a dog since I got married. I love with my husband and 2 boys in Georgia.

Well..we're working on the name, we've narrowed it down to about 10 hahaha.
Our breeder is Lynn at Los Perritos, she says he's a big personality in a little package. Small but Mighty!
Odieo - it's so exciting waiting for a new puppy isn't it. I cant wait to introduce the GSD we have here now. He's so great with puppies. (we foster from time to time)

Thanks Tillie's Mom, I think so too!
I learned with GSD's to research, research, research!
And then, of course it's important to feel comfortable. After all I'll probably be asking lots of questions heeheee.
