Havanese are like potato chips..can't have just one...

Back in 2004 when we got our first Havanese, Violet, we didn't know about health testing, or much about Havanese. Violet was awesome and soon, 1 year later we got Spencer. Then 6 months later we got Frederick. We had a happy band of three Havanese. Sadly, they all had medical problems and we lost Violet when she was 9 years old, Frederick when he was 10 and Spencer when he was almost 11.

We learned a lot with our three fur babies and knew we would get another Havanese. Well, it didn't take long and we got Jade who has a very laid back awesome personality. We thought we would just have one this time but, then we came across Kona, well, we couldn't say no! So we have two!

With Kona having severe medical issues he may not be with us for a long time, we thought about getting another boy to add to the family. Again, things just fall into our laps! The breeder we got Jade from had a puppy come available, and sent us a video.....how do you turn down all that Havanese cuteness???

Sunday we will be picking up Harley, so here we are back to having 3 Havanese!! Honest, they just followed us home

So we have Jade 7 months, Kona 5 months and Harley 9 weeks!

Just like potato chips, you just can't have one!

Hugs, Jade, Harley, April and John. In our hearts, Kona

I just hate to read this because each month I feel my resolve to have just one melting away bit by bit! We are in residence in Mexico right now. One of our neighbors here (from Boulder, CO) has a Chocolate Hav named CoCo. She is 9 months younger than Ricky but they are the same size and same personality. The two are inseparable and we let them play to exhaustion together every afternoon on the big lawn in front of our place. We would take CoCo home with us permanently in a heartbeat but her Momi and Popi love her as much as we love Ricky. I'm going to try and take a video of them playing together before we leave in a couple of weeks.

Three seems to be our number, since we have done it twice!

It is really hard not to get more Havanese!
But, I am sure that Ricky would love a brother or sister.
When the time is right you'll be showing us your new baby!
