Hey guys! I have a good friend wanting an Xmas Havanese....I know but ....

they have been debating for a year about getting a dog. The kids have been BEGGING for one the last several months. All love Winston and my friend has been interested in learning about him and havanese in general, etc. She's gotten husband on board.....Of course, Winston has won another over! LOL. She wants to buy from a good breeder, knows the pricing, etc.

Can you pm me if you know of a breeder with puppies NEAR Indy please please please??

Our dogs are walking advertisements for the fabulous breed! I'm so tickled to hopefully have another playmate for Winnie.

Thanks!!!

Winston's Mom, Trish

Does your "I know but..." mean that you know it's not a great idea to get a dog or any other pet during Christmas? I don't have a referral in that area, but I do hope they consider waiting until after Christmas to actually bring the puppy home. The holidays are so chaotic for most families, especially if you have children with school programs, gifts, visiting family, etc. It is nicer for the puppy to move into a home during their regular routine.

If they do choose to go this route, maybe they can buy some dog toys and supplies (crate, bed, leash, collar, etc.) for Christmas and bring the dog home later.

I've put her in touch with them LeeAnn Thank you!!!

You're on it!

I also sent her a link to Diane's puppies [windfall].... I told her she could put a picture of the pup under the tree with a box of dog toys etc......but kids are all about instant gratification so don't know how it would fly...but thos pups are soooo cute.

What a great idea Kimberly, both my boys were Christmas gift to me from DH. We knew we were looking for Riley and had a lot of things to buy so I asked for all puppy things from everyone then Riley was born Christmas eve. Then with Monte I was waiting for a litter to be born and already had everything I needed so DH bought me a stuffed puppy.

Kimberly...GREAT minds think alike...

we posted at the same time!! LOL.

Yes "I know but" means what you thought and I have suggested it each time I've sent her links to breeders I know of that have puppies that aren't ready to go home....

Hopefully she'll find a fit, but you know how it is with kids at Christmas....I'm thinking she should get them a Wii for Xmas [hot game console] and then a NEW YEAR NEW PUP celebration in January or whenever the pup she picked is ready.

Although Logan was ready to come home at Xmas time, I did wait and got him new Years Day!! It was a great way for us to start the new year, and it was a little less crazy at that time of the year. Although, I sure can understand kids!!!!

I got Squirt for my birthday but I researched dogs for at least 6 months prior and didn't bring her home until 1 1/2 months past my birthday. I think it is a good idea to wait until things are not chaotic to bring a dog home.

I should add that I didnt bring him home for xmas cause I was babysitting 2 other dogs besides my two, and was bringing two home. If I were to bring him home at Xmas, I would have scaled down our visiting and company!

I can't help you Trish.

OMG this gives me an idea- I should wrap a leash and a toy in a box and write to Amanda from Santa with a puppy picture!~ Great idea girls!
