Oldest Havanese on Forum???
I thought it would be interesting to know if there are other senior Havanese on the Forum. My senior girl Jaime came into our lives in 1995 after two years of longing for this unknown breed called the Havanese. Such a joy she has been and changed our lives so much. We have now been owned by a total of four Havanese, including Toby who went over the rainbow bridge earlier this year.
Little Jaime rules the roost although she is the smallest of all our Havanese at 9# in a little sturdy package. She is a little cranky these days when you disturb her sleep, but she still has lots of joy in her life. When "walking" with us it is often in her stroller -- but with moderate weather conditions she will still walk a half mile or so. She does not have many teeth left, her sight and hearing are declining but she gets around fine. Her thick curly puppy cut coat is thinning a bit and not growing nearly as fast (a little challenge for this winter -- she needs more hair to keep warm). She takes estrogen two times week which eliminated an involuntary incontence problem in her sleep that emerged about a year ago. She needs a lift to get on the furniture or bed, and she has not been on the back of the couch in a few years, but most of all her spirit is good.
Her Daddy is her favorite person on earth and she follows him around.
Please let us know about other senior Havanese and how they are doing (and of course pictures).
Attached are some pictures of Jaime in the past few years, including one with her taking a snooze with her Daddy on the deck.
Hope all you youngsters out there live as long!!!
Mom to my girls Jaime, Dori, & Chloe
