Introduce yourself Part 2

Since the original "Introduce Yourself" is almost 150 pages, I thought it might be nice to start a new one. It seems we have a lot of newbies and some of the old members jumped ship Please post pictures of you, your family, and your dog(s) or not

I'm Linda. I live with Bella 6 yrs old, Fred 5 yr old, and Scudder 4 years old. We live outside of Philadelphia near BRADY"S mom.

I am a freelance makeup artist for TV, Print, Video etc.

Bella is the Alpha female. She is very submissive to humans, but rules the boys. She is very gentle, loves to be held, calm, and loving.

Fred is a shy, grumpy boy. He is super sweet when you give him a treat, laid back, loves to be held, affectionate, and the bottom of the pack.

Scudder is Mr. Happy Go Lucky. he is so lovable, affectionate, super easy going, calm, go with the flow kinda guy.

Hope you all join in!

Great idea to start a new thread! (and I LOVE the bag in your picture, where is that from!!?)

My name is Tammy, and I am Havmom to Tillie (aka Tillie-kins, Tillie monster) in California.
She is 5 months old, we've had her since September.
She is amazing, so sweet, SO smart AND hasn't had an accident in over a MONTH!! wahoooo! She completes our family and adds a ton of life and excitement to our home! We have 2 (human) children also, 5 yrs and 8 1/2 yrs and they love Tillie to pieces.
Oh, we also have 3 cats... 1 cat shy of a crazy cat lady as my husband says!!

Hi Tammy,
The bag is a FUNDLE. It's not Bella's favorite bag. Her favorite one looks like a purse, but she lies on her tummy and her legs hang out of the bottom.

Hi I'm Trudy. I live in Ohio with my two fur babies Einstein (black and white) and Watson (white). They were born in April 2009. When they joined us we had just lost our beloved Dusty the Newfoundland. We still had Woody our sweet senior Saint Bernard and he has since passed this last summer. They loved Woody but as an old man, he just tolerated them. lol These are our first Havanese and we are all in love.

I have three children. My oldest is Addison (24) Kiley (21) and Spencer (16) Spencer has been critically ill for four years seeing specialists from here and Cleveland. I really think the boys have helped to save his life, giving him such joy and something to look forward too each day. I can only work part time and Spencer is too ill to attend school so between my working boomerangs (older two) and Spencer the pups are never alone.

I am leaving with my husband soon for our first overnight without the pups and I am anxious. Einstein is so attached to me I am afraid of how he will be when I'm gone for an entire week. Einstein is so smart he would let us know when Watson had to go outside to potty when they were just four months old. He also answers us by shaking his head yes and of course answering with a sneeze or two! Einstein eats at our feet, carrying the food from his bowl to us. Watson is pure dog. He wants to be held for a short time and then he's on to something else. He is very attached to my oldest son Addison. Watson eats at the bowl. Watson barks at the slightest thing and Einstein just picks his head up and lays back down. lol Einstein wants to be on my lap or wants me to hold him all the time. The family jokes that I need a baby sling or sack to carry him and he would be one happy pup. They both love car rides and never get car sick. They went camping with us and did great on the 6 hour car ride.

I don't have pics of me and the boys. I'm always the one behind the camera. Linda your beautiful. In your line of work, would you consider working your make up magic on me? My son Addison is in the pictures with the boys.

I have been a member of this forum since the fall of 2009 and I can't thank everyone enough for helping me through the puppy days and now their toddler years.

Tammy,
You have a bust household! Tillie is adorable and so smart to be almost housebroken already.

Trudy,
OK, Einstein is my kind of mommy's boy. Sounds just like my Scudder. I think he will adjust when you are away, especially since there's always someone there.

I am sorry to hear about your son Spencer. I'm happy the furkids bring him so much joy. These guys seem to understand when someone is ill. I wonder if your pups can sense Spencer's illness. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

My First Posting

Hi,

This is my first posting and I have been waiting for an opportunity to share about my sweet little havanese.

I have had several dogs in my lifetime and have loved each of them; however, 4months ago we got our first havanese. His name is Bisbee and he is currently 6months old. I cannot express what a SPECIAL little guy he is. What an AMAZING breed this is!!! He has been a dream of a puppy and I know that I will not be a single havanese owner...I must have more

One of the things that has been so special is that we have a 80 pound yellow lab in our family. I never anticipated that they would develop such a special friendship. They are completely in love with each other. It is hysterical watching them play together. One of their favorite games is playing tug...80 pounds on one end of the toy and 8 pounds on the other end.

I can say without a doubt I think that the havanese is the best breed of dog there is and I am completely in love.

Thanks for letting me brag....

Cindy (Havakiss)
