Hello, nice to meet you all!

Hi everyone,

I'm Christina. I'm from Austin, TX and I am a hopeful future Havanese owner! I've been reading the forum over the past week and can't wait to ask you all a milllllion questions. You all seem to take such loving care with your Havababies - I'm so excited to take in all of your knowledge and experience.

Anyway, a little bit about my Havanese search... well, I like to be thoroughly informed before I make any big decisions or life changes (sometimes excessively so.) It's taken me almost a year of research and reading dog training literature to even decide that a Havanese would be right for me. This would be my first dog that I am fully responsible for, as I've had family pets as a child but none of my own. Now that I'm an adult, I have a great job, stable relationship, and I'm currently moving into a decent sized home - I've decided that I'm ready to begin this extensive learning process and offer my love to someone else. It will most likely be another six months or so before I feel comfortable and well-informed enough to choose a breeder, so I've got a while to wait; but don't be surprised to see an abundance of posts from me soliciting your knowledge during this time.
