New Member / New Mommy to a Havanese

Hello, all. Just wanted to introduce myself..

We just welcomed a Havanese Puppy to our family - I am looking forward to meeting other Havanese parents, and going through the forum to get tips on grooming, feeding, raising and just learning more about the breed.

Here are pictures of my little angel, Castro Puccino...

Jabellar,

Castro Puccino is a doll. What a big name for a little guy.

You'll find answers to all of the questions you can think of here. And even better, you'll find answers to questions you haven't even thought of yet!

Looking forward to seeing more pictures and hearing stories.

Welcome, He is a cutie! Did the little guy get injured? I noticed his pom pom on his leg.

Ahhhh - the chicken leg!!!! Yes, unfortunately, the baby had to be hospitalized last week; One night, he was walking like he was drunk (sideways), vomited, and then had some seizures. We rushed him to the NYC Veterinary hospital uptown (a normal 30 minute car ride, but made it in 10!).

The initial prognosis was grim - parvo, distemper, or liver shunts... After 2 nights in ICU, a neurological consult and a few blood tests, the prognosis was he either ate something toxic which has since passed, or it was a reaction to the antibiotics he was taking for diarreah.

He's been home for a week, and he's gained the weight he's lost and then some - at 14 weeks, he is at 4.04 lbs...

Thanks again for the warm reception!!!

Castro is 14 weeks old (almost 4 months); we live, and play in NYC, but sleep in Jersey City...
