Newbie and wanted to introduce myself

Hello everyone. I've been lurking for about a year now and I learned so so so much from all of you by reading posts here. I figured it's time to jump in.

I'm Traci--wife to my DH of 14 years, mom to 2 girls ages 10 and 6, and mom to our havanese Bentley who is such a sweetie. We live in southern Ohio.

Bentley has been with us since May last year. Here are a few pictures of our little furball. He's 13.2 lbs and a red sable--his color was more red with dark tips as a baby and he's grown out into such a pretty taupe-like blondish color that I love. He's blowing coat right now--learned everything about that from all of you experts THANK YOU! But it's been managable and we have not had any mats that I couldn't get out with a little tiny comb and persistence. Hopefully it will be over soon though. He has a little friend up the street--another hav who is 3 mos. older than he is and we do puppy playdates quite often. His buddy is moving this summer (military transfer) and we are so sad! I need to find him some other friends. It's amazing how many dogs in our neighborhood just are not friendly at all or never get outdoors or beyond the invisible fence. I'm soooo tempted to get another hav so they can keep each other company but I'm hopeful that maybe another little doggie buddy for him to play with will be enough.





We bought him from Hannah Kolzow outside of Chicago (Marcosa Havanese). His mama was Lila and daddy was Truman. She has really helped me along the way as a new pet owner and has been there when I called with questions in the beginning.

So hi to everyone and I'll try to be more active here instead of just lurking.

Traci

Our furbaby Bentley turned 6 in January.

Another southern Ohio!

I'm forced to de-lurk to say that if all goes well we'll be getting one of Truman's pups bred to a local (Cincinnati) dam in a few months!!! Wait, i'm not saying that correctly. We are on the waiting list with an awesome breeder who sired her lovely dam with Truman and we hope to bring our new family member home in June!

I was so excited to see another of Truman's beautiful off-spring. Where in Southern Ohio are you?

I'm in Springboro which is between Dayton and Cincinnati. Oh how exciting for you to be getting a puppy of Truman's too. Where are you? anywhere close to me?
