Talking Just 3 Days Til We Bring Chica Home! (This version of the thread has the photos)

Hubby Bob and I are counting the days til we bring our new Havanese, Chica, home to us.

(Boomer, the cat ... not so much!)


Hope I've put the photos in right...

Cheers,

Sheila

Thanks, TilliesMom, for your nice welcome on my original post.

You answered so fast that I didn't have time to delete it before figuring how (here, in this re-do) how to add the photos. ;-)

Bob had a dog when he was a little boy, but I have never had a dog. Never wanted one either, until I fell in love with this little characters.

ha ha... I'll welcome you again then!!

Welcome to the forum!!!
That is funny, I NEVER wanted a dog either... till I learned about the Havanese breed in general and I KNEW that SOMEDAY I would love to add one to our family. We are "cat people" but Tillie is just amazing, the most "perfect" addition to our family we could have ever dreamed of! But, I'm sure everyone feels like way about thier Havs!!
Can't wait to hear all the stories and adventures you are about to embark on!!!

We have taken videos of us playing with Chica when we've gone to visit her at the breeder's ... and then shown them to Boomer the Cat.

He was riveted to the screen!

Today I showed him a video from Youtube of two senior cats playing with a new puppy.

He made little snorting noises during that one.

Thanks, Dave.

I've read quite a few books from the library, including Joyous Havanese. And I bought four, including Dunbar's "Before & After Getting Your Puppy."

It's my fave ... and I've said to several people: "If that was the only dog book we read, we'd be fine."

Thanks, Teresita! I wanted something Spanish, and it seems to suit her.

Always knew Canucks were smart people;LOL Yep , Both of Ian Dunbars books should be mandatory reading for new dog owners.
