Well hello there!
Hi, my name is Donna and I'm a Hav addict. ("hello Donna") LOL
I've been in lurker mode for months now and I've so appreciated learning from all of you experts! I haven't had to de-lurk until now because all my questions (until now) have been asked and answered by members. Cool.
My human babies are really growing up and we wanted a family dog. Well, maybe Mommy really wanted another baby. Not sure. Anyway, I went on an internet/magazine/expert search for the perfect small dog with children. And what do you suppose I found? The adorable Havanese. Big surprise to you all, right? LOL.
Bonnie Lass came to us in October. And I must brag that I think she may be the most adorable black and white parti girl in the world! LOL. She has brought undescribable pleasure to our family! She romps and hops in the backyard (must be careful to watch her so she doesn't become hawk-lunch), is pottytraining great outside and rarely has an indoor accident, she dances and sits on command, she is learning come, plays fetch, has taken to her crate beautifully and brings us millions of smiles!
Interestingly, she has been such a pleasure that I think I have developed a problem -- something you all mention on the boards as MHS? I am in the process of trying to obtain another Hav from my breeder! Well, with 4 kids, there should be less arguing who gets to play with the dog if there are two, right? That is if Mommy ever learns to share!!! LOL.
Now to my questions, I notice that when Bonnie has her head up in certain positions I can feel her ?breastbone? under her neck and between her front legs. It's not pointy but it does stick out a bit. Is that normal physically for a Hav? Also, I'm thinking about her first heat -- will she affect neutered male dogs (my neighbor has 3)?
Thanks in advance! I already know you are a wonderful bunch of people!
Another question, was that poster from FL with the over-active Bella looking for a stud for REAL? (LMAO... forgive me, I can be a smart a**!)
