Talking Introductions...with pics!!

Hi everyone!!

I had originally posted something in the training section asking for help (and got some!) but it took me a while to actually realize I haven't introduced myself yet!

My name is Chris, from Boston, MA and my partner and I adopted a sweet, little Havanese puppy that we named Diego. We already had an Olde English Bulldogge (who will be 3 years old soon) at home, but we wanted another dog. My partner wasn't fond of the "small dog" idea but he realized that we couldn't get anything roughly the same size as Olive (our Bulldogge) so we HAD to go smaller. I researched, and researched, and researched and fell in love with the Havanese just by reading about it! I brought the breed up to my partner and talked him into it...and of course, as soon as we got Diego, it was instant love!

Diego is currently 3 months old and has such an AMAZING personality! We're still housebreaking him, and it's proving to be a slight challenge, but it's working out...slowly.

Olive took to him really quickly too! They have been inseparable ever since we brought him's like he is Olive's little shadow, everything she does, he has to do too! It probably has to be seen to really understand it, but just know, it's absolutely adorable!

Below are some pictures of Diego (and Olive)...I hope all is well with everyone and hope to hear from you guys!!

Chris - Hi again! Glad to see more pics of Diego. The picture of Olive and Diego on the deck is great. They must both have good hips! Olive looks like she's really taken to Diego too. My DH was originally NOT in favor of small "ankle-biter, yappy" dogs. But after we had Daisy for a year, I told him it was HIS turn to pick a dog - whatever breed he wanted. And he had fallen so in love with Daisy that he chose to get a second Havanese. They are definitely the most social, furry-faced family members!! Glad you and Diego are on the forum. We love pictures - so post them whenever you have more of Diego and Olive.
