Was your havanese a surprise gift or was it your choice?

I love videos on youtube where people get puppies/dogs as surprise gifts and they end up crying so much out of happiness...it brings me to tears of joy as well. How lucky of them. I don't remember seeing any havanese surprise gifts and would love to see a video on that.

Well, Abby was a Christmas gift but in a very roundabout way! A few years ago my DH gave me a brooch for Christmas which was the ugliest one I had ever seen! Then, when I found out how much it cost I almost had a heart attck! That was the sign I had been waiting for that I should get a Havanese puppy. I returned the brooch and the rest is history! Unfortunately, DH won't buy me jewelry anymore - he's afraid Abby will get a brother or sister!!!

If there are any videos like that on here, they are more along the lines of one spouse begging another spouse to get another puppy and a defeated husband begrudgingly handing over the puppy... ehh, okay..so Im' joking, Kind of.

I'm not sure if Havs are an impulsive breed to buy, probably more research involved with the hav owners, I know I did a ton of research and had allergies which led me to find this breed.

My two girls were planned, not a surprise.
But.. when I wanted Logan, I fell in love with him, the breeder knew that but I had to convince hubby. He kept saying no, no no I dont want a third dog!! I would email him pics of the puppy (who I had already named Logan) and I would call him on the intercom and say "puppy, puppy, puppy" I drove him nuts - but he still said no.
We went into NYC for Xmas, and were in Tiffanys, and he had a surprise pair of earrings waiting there for me - along with a card that said "Yes, you may get Logan" The stinker had it all arranged with my breeder.
So my Logan was a bit of a surprise - and a great one at that!

I got Rosie just 3 weeks after my little schnauzer died. My husband hated my schnauzers and said that I shouldn't get another dog anyway soon. I waited three weeks and had researched breeds and decided on the Havanese because it was such a difference from any I had ever had, an they were described as happy, long-lived little dogs. I found Rosie and told hubby we were going to Alabama to pick up a puppy. I was to old to wait any longer. He fell in love with her at first sight and continues to do so.

None of mine were surprises, although I had no intention of getting a third when I saw Ms. Ruby staring at me, calling my name. However, you might be able to call Bailey somewhat of a surprise. For those who remember the story, I found him on my breeder's site and fell instantly madly in love. After a number of emails back and forth, I made the decision to get him. He was about 4 weeks old then. I waited with bated breath, anxiously looking for his updated photos for the next couple of weeks.

One evening I got an email that said the breeder was changing her mind and would I mind if she kept him after all. I instantly came to my friends here and shared my shock and horrible disappointment. I felt as if I adopted a baby soon to be born and was suddenly told they changed their mind. After lots of cyber hugs and shared tears, thankfully the breeder rethought it and I got my baby.

Now, the point of this convoluted tale is, there was a mix-up about his delivery. She originally scheduled him to fly in to an airport a state away. I called to tell her I needed him to come in to the local airport, as Milo had. She said she would take care of it and get back to me with details of the new flight. I didn't hear from her and assumed the flight would then be delayed a few days. Until . . . I got a call from the airport asking where I was and telling me he was there and waiting to be picked up. I was in a state of shock.

Thankfully, everyone at the airport fell madly in love with him and coincidentally, one of the handlers lived in my town. She brought him right to me when she got off from work. So, in that sense my little boy was a surprise.
