New to the forum!

Hi there,

I'm Amanda - the proud new owner of a 1 year old havanese named Pirate! Pirate joined my family just last Thursday and am AMAZED at the progress he's made in such a short time. I'm fortunate that it took no time for Pirate to warm-up to me; I'm definitely the mama!

I have lots more questions and look forward to sharing success (and set-backs) along the way!

Welcome, Pirate and ________! (Would love to know your name, too.) Since you are new to HF, we'll forgive you (for now) -- but we need to see pictures!!!!

I'm definitely going to let it grow a bit. I love the long hair and hope I can keep it up (walking around NYC adds another challenge to keeping clean!). Pirate is great about letting me give him a bath but gets fussy when I try and brush him. The pet brush I have is the dual-head (he prefers the soft side). Is there a better kind I can be using?

Hi, Amanda!

This is such a crazy coincidence but I actually have Pirate's brother! My puppy's name is Carlos. We were considering taking Pirate as well but we decided to stick with one for now.

Happy early birthday to Pirate, btw! Saturday is the big day!!

As soon as I can figure out how to post photos on here I'll show you a pic lol

Happy Early Birthday to Carlos!! I was so excited to get him in time for his first birthday! Pirate unfortunately will be going to the vet on Saturday morning but we'll do something fun afterwards

Here are pics when he was a little younger.

The one with the crazy hair is what we call "sleep face" when his hair goes all over the place after he sleeps. That particular picture was after I had 3 wisdom teeth removed and then suffered from dry socket for nearly two weeks. I was stuck on the couch all day and he wouldn't leave my side!
