Heeer's What's Her Name!

Hi Everyone!

Well, I am finally an official Havanese owner and I'm so excited! We drove to West Virginia on Friday and met the breeder who drove in from Ohio with my beautiful puppy. It was love at first sight!

Sorry I haven't posted sooner but my weekend has been very busy with my six grandchildren (who love the puppy, so far). She's doing well with her sleeping, eating, etc. Only problem...she DOESN'T have a name! We are still tossing 'round Bella, Blossom and Maggi. I've got to decide before "she" gets a complex.

I have some pictures to share but don't know how to make them small enough for the Forum. If anyone has any info on that, please let me know.

Thanks again to everyone for your encouragement thus far!

Congratulations on your no-name little girl, she looks adorable in the avatar. Here's a link to sizing the pictures.


Once you post some close-ups, maybe we can collectively help with the name. I find that names tend to fit not just the looks, but the personality as well.

Looking forward to lots and lots of pics,

What a cutie!
To shrink a picture:
On the main page of the forum is a link.I put them on my desk top,then go to the shrink link and shrink to 600.....then I put them back on the desktop and post with my message by managing attachments clear at the bottom of the post.

Someone could probably explain it better---but I tried.

Oh, how exciting for you Eileen! So far, she's absolutely adorable! I'm looking forward to seeing more pictures.

I'm sure that whatever name you decide on will be perfect for you. Have fun bonding with her.

Congratulations on your darling little girl, Eileen! Kimberly's right....whatever name you choose will be perfect. I let my husband name our dog this time, and when he said, "Maddie", I replied, "huh?" But the more I watched her, it did just seem right for her. I added the middle name (May), but somehow the right name finds the dog. I'm sure you'll have the perfect name soon.

Oh, how cute!!! We tossed around Maggie and Bella, I love both those names (we ended up using Bella Tessa as part of her AKC name). But I let my 19 yo DD name her and she chose Tessa. Now I can't imagine her by any other name...she IS a Tessa

If you can't decide among those 3 look at a baby name book and go down the list...you'll know when it's the right one! That's what we did.

Good luck! Looking forward to more pics....

Congrats! She is a cutie and I can't wait to see more photos! Can't help on the name, I tend to have the name picked out long before the dog!
