I have been lurking on this site for well over a year and decided now was the time to join. The picture is of our havanese, Isabelle, 2 1/2, with our golden, Olivia, who is 10. Oops, just realized that I don't know how to submit a photo.

Thank you so much for all the information on this forum. It has been extremely helpful in raising Isabelle. In the beginning we did all the wrong things beginning with purchasing her from a back yard breeder. Although the breeder was very nice they did no health testing etc. We were fortunate that Isabelle is quite healthy and was very easy to train. In fact, by the time she was 6 months old she was completely house trained and has had full run of the house since that time. I can't take all the credit though because the goldens did much of the training. Hannah (now deceased at age 8) and Olivia were very much in charge of making sure Isabelle followed the house rules. Very sweet.

Thank you, forum members, for posting the positive and well meaning threads. Thank you for also posting the trying times. The suggestions and considerations not only helped the original poster but also helped even us lurkers. I can't be the only one.

Love your avatar. Timmy's surrogate grandma was a golden, who recently passed away. He stops at her house every time we pass it on our walks, she really helped him overcome his fears when he was little.
