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!!!

Jaime is age 15.5 years

OOPs, I forgot to say how old Jaime is. In case anyone is math challenged she is currently 15.5 years and will be 16 in May!

Judy, what a sweetie Jaime is! She looks like a little doll! We, too, had all those problems with a senior mini poodle a few years ago but she was the sweetest dog I've ever had. I hope Jaime gives you a few more years to enjoy!

BTW, our Abby is just 3 1/2. I hope her life will be as long as your sweet Jaime's!

Jaime is beautiful, I love the picture of her sleeping with her daddy! How blessed you are to have her for so many wonderful years. I hope for the same!

what cute pictures!!

My girl is about to turn 4 and WOW time has flown by so quickly it doesn't even feel like 4 years.

I don't know who has the oldest hav on the forum, I would be curious to know the oldest age that has been known for a hav to live, it really sucks that they can't live as long as we do and that's putting it mildly. I wish they could live in human years.

Jaime is absolutely as sweet as they come!

I'm not saying for certain----but it seems there are a couple older havs on here...saying in the 10+ range. I do not think as old as yours Jaime though.

Try a search on here and see what pops up. At one time,there was a thread about this topic and I remember Pat as having an older havanese and I believe Mintchip's Oliver is older too.

Okay--here is 1 thread I found.....http://www.havaneseforum.com/showthr...ght=oldest+dog

The odd thing is the part I was sure of (Oliver) is not posted here. That means either there is another thread on this topic or Sally's post was deleted.
Either way--it looks like Pat's dog and Tom King's dog are the oldest on here...well not now....Jaime is!

Clover will be 14 in April. He sure can't see or hear like he used to, but still loves going for walks and still sprints the last 20 yards or so
