Welcome to the Havanese Forum!!! What a beautiful girl you have. She's adorable!
You asked: " Also, is anyone in the Chicago area?" Soooooo many of us were in the Chicago area just last month!! The U.S. National Havanese Specialty was there. Of course, that doesn't help you trying to get together with other Hav owners on a regular basis. lol
Coat type can be from genetics, diet, general health, and who knows what else... Did you see her parents and/or siblings? Ricky's dam had a thin coat, but that was because she had just had puppies. His siblings had, and still have, thick and profuse coats.
If you are feeding a food containing a lot of grain (and corn is a no-no, as it is the #1 cause of allergies and digestive problems), it can affect the dog's coat.
Still, many Havs have many diff. types of coats, so it may be something that she will either grow out of or is just her type.
