Suzi,
Nice job on the fire hydrant. I know my boys would love to get a hold of it!

Wink Our Intro

Hi, we got Rooney in mid-November from Prairiwind in S. Dakota. He was born 9/13/10 making him about 12 weeks. The picture I will attach is from last night, I just got a new winter hat, so we modeled together.
I'm a cardiac nurse, working 3 twelve hour shifts per week, and my son Oakley is a senior in high school. Rooney gets visits during the day when we are both gone.

I'm in the midst of a separation from my husband, which will most likely end our relationship. I'm just not moving forward legally as he is recovering from some medical issues... Nothing like gettin a guy while he's down, eh?

I will say that getting this wonderful black and tan puppy has really helped my emotional state. I had no idea, he softens me up, decreases my stress and stays with me all day and night. A great relationship! No, really I try to give back to the little guy, by keeping him cozy and stimulated.

I have never been a pet person. When I was younger I was around poorly trained dogs, I see this now in retrospect.

So, I find myself amazingly, pleasantly surprised by the gift this puppy is for us. People around me have indicated this fact by the love when talking about their pets, but I just didn't get it before.

I am addicted to looking at pics of other havanese, and especially web sites with puppy pictures. Dreaming of another, maybe next year?

Love, love, love my puppy!

That's the scoop poop.

Elizbeth, What a tough job you have! My late husband spent 3 months in a Cardiac Intensive Care unit in 1986 he had 7 surgerys and three were open heart. The nurses were so great. You really do need to destress. Your guy is so cute.

Poohkey miss you, monkey.

Wow Elizabeth,
Welcome to the forum! Roney is adorable. I love the Prairiwind pups! I was the same as you. I never even liked animals! People couldn't believe I was getting a dog and now I have 3. They got me through my divorce as well! It's amazing how these guys can fill voids in your heart and make everything ok. Thanks for posting!

Introducing Boz

Hi, my name is Rebecca and I have been lurking around this site for the past 3 or 4 months. My husband and I have one of the dozen or so Havanese in New Zealand. As it is such a new breed here, this site in invaluable for information. My "Boz", is a white male with a small amount of champagne colouring on his ears and back. He is 11 months old and very demanding of my time. He has green eyes and brown nose and lips, I have no idea if this is normal or not but he's my little guy. Actually I think he thinks he owns me!

Hi Rebecca,
Welcome to the forum. I'm am glad you finally stopped lurking!! Wow, there are only a handful of havanese in new Zealand huh? Your boy is a chocolate!! I love them. It is completely normal for the chocolates to have brown pigment around their eye, lips and nose and green eyes.I would love to see more pictures of his pretty green eyes. Do you think the Hav's over there look any different. How big is he?

Boz is much larger than I thought he was going to be, he just seemed to grow and grow and was not a puppy for very long at all. From shoulder to tail he is about 20 inchs long and approx 12'' tall at shoulder.

I am trying to keep him in a long coat, but am starting to struggle as I guess he is now blowing his coat (a term I have never heard before). My groomer has never seen this breed before or could find no reference so between the two of us we are really experimenting using the trial and error method! First groom we cut his fringe (bangs) but as it grew out I didn't like so I am now trying to grow it out and it is going through a messy stage, (cant quite get it in a band). Second and last groom, we cut around his feet and beard a little more than the first time. I am now combing him for about 20 minutes every day to keep the knots at bay but I am worried about ruining his coat as I notice it is starting to look a little "fly-away".

I will have to study up and learn how to post photos, then I will let you see him now he is a little older and scruffier.

Rebecca

He is s big boy! My friends Hav is big too. He is about 19lbs. There are a lot of larger hav's out there. I actually prefer the larger ones. My guys are 6, 15 and 16lbs. My boys are very sturdy.
I think your groomer is doing a nice job on his face, from what I can see. I am not a fan of beards, and a big fan of puppycuts. I do my own. I know they don't look perfect, but it saves me so much money and then allows me to splurge on dog sweaters and coats
To post a picture. Hit the "Go Advanced" and then look for " manage attachments". Another window will pop up allowing you to load 5 pictures. Then you add them to you post. I have an apple computer. The way I do it is I put the pictures I want to upload on my desktop and load them from there. I will look for pictures later

I think your dogs look very well groomed and cared for, the pic you can see of my Boz is when he was about 4 months old.

I cant even find the "Go Advanced" so I have just loaded some into an album in my profile. pop in there and you will see him as he is now, his scruffy self. Lol.

Thank you for your interest. I think I will be spending quite a bit of time on here, as for now it is well after midnight and Im off to bed.

Rebecca
