Want to introduce Moxie and me

Finally figuring my way around the forumand really happy to have a place to learn more about my new best friend, Moxie.
I have been amused to read about the "Havanese Community" and I have a trillion questions!

Here is hoping that I have figured out how to launch this message!!

Thanks so much for the welcome.
Moxie is my first small dog, I have only had big dogs and I am absolutely delighted with him.
I travel a lot and needed a small baby this time. He tucks so sweetly under the seat when we fly to California
I'm not sure how to flesh out my profile in my posts, but we live in both Connecticut and San Diego.
Believe it or not, we have never met another Havanese in person and would love to find a playmate "in the flesh"
I did some serious research before finding him, but it seems that the Havanese breed is a well kept secret...??

Soooooooo, I assume that it is the late night owls and the West Coast Havanese lovers that are still posting...
My name is Debra.
I am wondering about ear hair..... do we really pluck it by hand????
I am wondering about that dreaded first haircut........and the tranquilizers that I will need
I am wondering about a "wild and crazy guy" that possesses Moxie once or twice a day.... during which time Moxie lunges at me, tries to hang from the hem of my dress, attack my toes, maul my shoes....

That's just for starters

Hi and welcome to the group. Moxie is adorable and you'll be as besotted by your little ball of fluff as we all are. Aren't you lucky to live in Connecticut and San Diego, two great places.

Look forward to hearing more from you and to see lots of photos of your little one.

ear hair

Baby powder works best. Just do a little at a time. One of my havanese hardly has any, the other quite a bit.

I let mine stay in full coats for four years, just recently cut and wish I hadn't at least on the face. The hair goes in their eyes. I'm going to keep the body hair short but allow the face and legs to grow back out. Most of the matting is under the arms anyway.

Welcome.

I think there will be a puppy play date about 30 miles north of San Diego quite soon.

I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!
