New to the forum - Meet Maddie!

Hello!
I am new to the forum and just wanted to introduce myself and our new baby Maddie! Maddie is 12 weeks old and is Gordo's sister (Mimi's Mom's newest addition). Gordo's Mom told us about the forum when we met at the Petsmart where we adopted our new kids and I am so glad she did!
I have been reading a lot of posts since joining 2 weeks ago but just had my account validated today. This has been a wonderful resource as I get to know this breed.
I first heard of the Havanese breed from the Dogs 101 episode and was really taken with them! So far, so good! Maddie (although part Beagle) has lived up to the breed's reputation. She is such a happy little social butterfly! We are still working on housetraning but she is doing very well. She knows how to "sit" and we're working on "down" and she's doing well on a leash too. She is very smart! Also quite the chewer and very curious so she's keeping us on our toes!
My husband and I have 3 other dogs. 2 Siberian Huskies (13 years old) and 1 Yorkie mix we adopted from the SPCA from the first litter of puppies I ever fostered, 4 years ago. We were always "big dog" people until Little Bit came our way and stole our hearts. Maddie has made an excellent addition to our family and has been every bit the playmate we hoped Little Bit would have.
We look forward to participting in the forums!!
I'm attaching a couple of pictures but they are off my phone and one is a little blurry. We'll get better at this I hope!

How adorable! Welcome Lisa and Maddie!

This forum has helped me so much in my first 9 months of Havanese ownership! Enjoy.

Welcome Lisa and Maddie!

You will have to bring Maddie to our playdate so she and Gordo can have a mini family reunion! It will be great to see them play together!

How exciting! I can't wait to see more pictures.

Awww how cute. It will be awesome to have siblings grow up near each other and hopefully get together for playdates too!

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! It's so fun to see all your pics and learn from your experience! I heard about the playdate and I would LOVE to come but we're going to be out of town that day (with our little girls in tow) to watch our son play baseball. It sounds like a lot of fun though and I hope we can make it another time. Galaxie, I did notice your Maddie too! She and Roscoe are adorable! Hope you don't mind having another one on board!
