Smile Introduction - Sandy and our Havanese girl - Lucy!!

Hello everyone!

I posted my first message yesterday in a thread on grooming gone bad so I thought I would do an introductory post to get things started.

I live near Seattle with my family, (husband, 3 kids, 2 dogs). I have two daughters, ages 19 and 17 and a son, age 9. We have a 12-year old long-haired Chihuahua named Paco and our 6 month old Havanese puppy named Lucy just came home to us in July. We got her from Elite Havanese in Vancouver, BC.

Before getting Lucy, I did a significant amount of research on finding just the right breed of dog for our family. Paco is great with us, but suffers from fear aggression and it's very difficult for us to enjoy him outside of our home. He has bitten people too many times and I'm always nervous when we take him anywhere because I never know how he'll react.

Lucy is his polar opposite. She is so sweet and loving and comes to work with me every day. She hardly ever barks so people don't even know she's at the office. She was spayed just last Friday and is still recovering, though I think she's doing great. She is so much fun and has settled in nicely with our family and with Paco too.

I'm enjoying reading about everyone's Havanese kids on the forum and learning more and more about this wonderful breed.

Thanks,
Sandy

Hi and Welcome!!! I am also relatively new to the forum but have found the information very helpful. Lexi will be 6 months on the 18th and just came home today after being spayed yesterday. She too is doing great. So glad to have you here....it is fun to hear from others who have puppies around the same age.

Sandy and Lucy, welcome! There is a little Havanese group out of the Seattle area, I've not yet been able to connect with them, but you'll probably be hearing from a couple of them that are more active on the Forum.

If you get over to Whidbey, come for a visit!

If you've been reading, you know we LOVE pictures!! (Hint...)
