Arrow Camellia Camelo, IFO

Inadvertently, I hijacked Arthur's thread! My apologies to Arthur and his HumanParents!

I'm taking the liberty of copying Kathie's reply to me, in Arthur's thread, over here to a new thread, so as to duck out from under my own hijacking!

Really didn't mean to, and supposedly I know better than to do that, but I let my enthusiasm get the better of me earlier today.

IFO stands for Identified Flying Object. Such as, Camellia racing around the yard, where I lived at the time she became my dog. Only weeks later, we were given notice to vacate, as my landlord wanted to use the trailer himself.

We were VERY fortunate to find a new (though Olde) place in my neighborhood, where friends hastily built us a new yard (but much smaller and less varied than the old one). The new landlord allowed us to put a dog door in the STEEL front door!

The yard is secure, and has my usual design of a double-baffle gate at the end that opens into the driveway, which helps prevent dangerous mistakes such as leaving a gate open enough to allow a dog out when we're not watching. No use crying over spilt milk, but I do miss our old yard.

So, to copy the relevant stuff from Kathie's reply, over here (hope that's okay, Kathie!) -

Carol, I love the name Camellia! We have lots of those in south GA! Our Abby must have been traumatized as a pup also. We got her at eight months and she will be five in June. Last spring we got another Havanese puppy and he has helped her tremendously - she is so much more outgoing now and not so afraid of things. We are older, too, and a brand new puppy was a huge amount of work in the beginning but well worth the effort!
Yeah, I can tell Arthur's Humans are smitten, too! I do like the idea of two, not one! I've usually had two dogs at once, but now my circumstances don't allow it, more's the pity.

As for Camellia, I'm going to point you to a story that indicates how she got her name. There's a lot of preliminary stuff (including much of my typical nonsense), but I suggest reading the preliminary stuff anyway, because then, the story of how Camellia got her name becomes properly significant.

I named her Camellia because she was planted in the sun, when she should have been planted in the shade. [deadpan].

Kathie - I think Camellias are beautiful flowers. We don't have many in my area, as the climate isn't that well-suited for those lovely flowers. It was brave of you to add a puppy - but a wonderful thing to do! I surely would have two dogs if I could, and possibly it would give Camellia a good assist. Too bad I really can't do it!

And thanks for the welcome! I deeply appreciate it. I am enjoying this forum SOOOO much! Glad I finally found it!

Camellia says hi to your dogs, and also, hi to Arthur!

Welcome, Carol! We love prolific posters, lol! I lurked for a long time. There was some drama about, so I waited for things to settle back to normal, which they did. I love all the different perspectives and opinions, just happy everyone is respectful as well. It's so much fun to "hang out" with other folks who are nuts about this wonderful breed.

I have a half Hav, half Shih Tzu that came to us as a rescue and was damaged goods. Alot of her fear aggression has disappeared, although for a while, my family were all members of her bite club. But love prevailed, as I'm sure in your case with Camellia.

Love your site Carol . Now I know why you didn't consider yourself an expert, after reading that article. But I think you're just being modest. .

Typical Havanese-Human generosity there! Thanks. All the same, I'll drop in on YOUR thread to talk about Arthur! He is such a cute dog!

And thanks for the welcome! Same to you!
