Now that's what I'm talkin about Tammy! Love the baby picture of Tillie!!

Kathie, we will wait for you to get that perfect picture.........2011 maybe?

Welcome to the forum Cindy. Bisbee is a doll. That's interesting to hear you say. Bella was my first dog ever. I guess I lucked out getting the best breed on my first try huh? I do love these little fur babies.
It's so nice when they get along. Happy to see the 2 of your dogs are best buds!

What a wonderful thread! Great idea Linda, I love all your stories.

Tammy - you can see the love you feel for Tilllie. She's a lucky pup.

Cindy - Of course you have to have more than one. Most of us do. It's such a joy to watch the big ones being sweet and loving to the little ones. I have that in my house too. It's a gift.

Trudy - You have a beautiful family and adorable fur kids. I'll keep your son Spencer in my prayers. I do believe in the healing quality of our pets.

Hello to all the wonderful people that live, learn and share here. I've always liked dogs. When I was about seven years old ,everyone around the neighbourhood was afraid of our neighbour's German Shepherd. I was not, and since I showed no fear ,he would also be friendly with me. Maybe he sensed that I was from a GSD background. LOL My grandfather was the first person in Canada to get this breed from Germany. Anyway since then I've always loved all dogs and used to take care of the hunting dogs we used in our hunting group. Since finding Molly nearly six years ago, I have taken a keen interest in studying all things dogs. I joined IPDTA (International Positive Dog Training Association) where I learned from some of the best trainers around. They all would say, I should have been a dog trainer ,LOL, but I guess I figured I started a little too late. Last year I felt really humbled when I received the Peer's Choice Award from IPDTA.
I've always enjoyed helping educate people about the benefits of positive reinforcement based training methods. I think it's about time that dog training has moved in this direction . What a difference in how dogs were trained 25 years ago, compared to what we know now. My first book I bought back then was typical for the time period. Quite harsh to say the least. And when I look at all my books that I have bought since that first book , I can see that gradually we have learned more and more. And to say that it has been heading in the right direction would be an understatement.
I think we should be treating dogs no different than we would treat a human. There is no need for the use of fear or intimidation in dog training and I will hope to continue to promote this message whenever I can.
If we are to call dogs "man's best friend" it's up to us to reciprocate.

I think most of you know me already, but for those who don't, here goes. My name is Kim. I'm 43, married, and have 3 kids, Jack (10), Piper (9) and Miles (7). I work full time as in-house counsel for a local shipyard. We have one hav, Santos (1.5 yrs), Sushi (shih tzu, 3) and Bentley (english springer spaniel, 5). I am a rabid Saints fan, I love to read, and I love my dogs. I want a puppy, but my husband is a scrooge. Here we are.

I think hubby is planning to surprise you with a puppy for Christmas. If not, I told you, let that be your present to him . . . or the kids. He can't be that much of a Scrooge. Love your pictures. You're kids are all beautiful. In that last "dog whisperer" photo of your daughter, I feel as if I'm looking at such a sweet soul.

You're all lucky to have each other.

My name is Suzi and I live in Oregon in a small city called West Linn. Would love to find some Havanese friends in the area.
I have two kids a boy named Kelly who is 25 And a girl named Carly who is 27
Maddie is like having my third kid I love her she has made my life complete.
I just got laid off work and have lots of time to be with her. I would love to learn everything their is to know about breeding .
I studied Art in collage and ceramics and painting are my main interests. I'm thinking of putting together a small line of Havanese clothes and be a stay at home mom. I diffidently want more than one Havanese I'm waiting tell spring when Maddie is a bit older.
I love this Forum and it is nice to see faces of all you Havi Moms and Dads!

I painted the fire hydrant for the dog park I work for the city of West Linns Park department and was paid to Design and paint it. It only took about one minute before a dog used it
