Smile Announcing "WhatsHerName"..

[ATTACH]P1030490 (480x640).jpg[/ATTACH]Why is this sweet little girl outside looking in? Welllll, she is Sir Winston's new little sister...and she is in season! Neither Sir Winston nor I are thrilled about that...another week to go! She is cut down, ears, everything...she is 4 years old, about the same as Sir Winston...she is Duncara Ballerina a Lowchen, she comes from France.P1030498 (640x480).jpg I was told she is bilingual and she is adapting well after a rocky start. Hopefully this will be the last photograph until she looks presentable.P1030467 (640x480).jpg
I was really looking for a Havanese, but Lowchen were never far from my mind either lol...
A call name...not yet! Wanted to see her personality..so far she is a little Ballerina, standing on her back toes and twirling around when she sees something too high to reach..
Sorry to be so long winded...more on her later.

Love her Flynn. As for long winded . . . quite the contrary, not long winded enough for all of us, I suspect. Congrats again on your beautiful little girl.

Congratulations! Sir Winston's huge smile in that first picture leads me to believe he is thrilled with his new sister.

Will try to answer all questions so far here....She is very sweet and Sir Winston thinks she is the greatest thing since sliced bred, because she is in season...thus keeping them apart. Not an ideal situation, but flight was already scheduled and she came into season at that time. When I first started researching Lowchen I found one of the oldest kennels, Duncara located in France, and started looking at lines..there were certain lines I liked and certain lines that worried me more than others regarding health problems/issues. I made friends with the owner of the Duncara line. She has much knowledge/insight into different European lines, etc. and had imported some to the US. Then I started looking again at the Havanese. I got SW as a result of looking at rescues, and love him to pieces. Then, I almost purchased a Havanese, but it did not work out...so in the meantime my friend decided to close out her kennel, due to her health...she had this one little girl who was the last of her original line and decided to sell her, I applied and got her. I do not know if I will breed her. There is one dog in the US which might work well with her lines..but I am not sure I will breed her period. She had a litter last fall. She may well just be a companion. I don't think I will show her as she needs tons of coat and I do not plan to restrict her playing with Sir Winston to grow coat...she will be allowed to just be a dog..so we will see what the future brings. Simply stated, I wanted her lines, but what I will do remains to be seen...and thought since she is older, it might be a good fit.
It is difficult to name a dog or see the personality in such little time. I do have it narrowed down to a few names...but not sure yet. I know her personality will be different once she is through with her season...hoping SW will still love her...
It has been an ordeal keeping them apart...I am anxious to see them together..but since he was just neutered, have to keep them apart for a while..the vet said it was not positively safe for 6 months...duh!!
Hope this is one of those things that just happened at the right time...I still love the Havs..always will like both breeds, but I have to tell you Sir Winston is a jewel...wish I could bottle him!!!

CONGRATULATIONS, Flynn!!! Sir Winston does look like he is grinning from ear to ear! He is thinking 'Oh, how my Mom loves me; she brought me a new friend!' Your little girl has the sweetest face! I hope they will be the best of friends! Hope you do better with the name game than I have done!
