Red face Introduce myself and my babies

Hi, I'm mom to a six year old Havanese and a two year old Maltipoo. We got our Havanese almost two years ago from a woman that had rescued her from a brother that was moving and going to give her to a shelter. The sister said that she would find her a home, so she advertised her on Craigslist. I feel like it was a divine appointment that I found her. I fell in love with her immediately and it only tood my husband about thirty minutes to fall in love. The minute she looked up at him with her big brown eyes and then crawled up on our bed to sleep the first night, he couldn't resist. I've been lurking for the past few weeks, but I love all of your advice and I love to see all of your Havanese. I am new to Havanese owning and I love the termperment of the breed. Mandi is a little larger than the average Havanese, but I don't care, I love her so much.
We rescued our Maltipoo-Jax, about a year ago and he has been so good for Mandi. He still has a lot of puppy in him and he is constantly challenging her to play with him.
Well thats my babies. My husband and I live alone with them. Our children and grandchildren love our furbabies, but they don't get to visit much.

Thanks for listening to my rambling.

Linda Mom to Jax, Mali and Mandi

Welcome Linda - how fun that you've got two playbuddies already. I supposedly have a purebred Maltese but I swear with his poodle coat that he's got to be a Malti-poo as well. He's also a rescue. A woman imported him from Brazil for her five year old boy. Hello?

Anyway, we love pictures here and there are just some fabulous people to ask questions of. Also, if you want to know something, use the search feature with a key word like "xpen" "potty training" etc and it will show you all the threads that people have started and the wonderful advice that's already been written.

Hi Linda... welcome to the forum from Roxie and me. Roxie is larger than the average hav too, but that's fine with us. My two boys didn't want a tiny dog anyway. Although I kind of did... but you often get what you need in life even if you don't realize it at the time, right?

Looking forward to see some pictures of your furbabies!

Question

Thanks so much for the warm welcome. I will get some pictures on here as soon as I figure it all out. My Avatar is my Mandi. Ann, I know what you mean. My husband didn't want a tiny do, I kind of did, but after getting Mandi, I wouldn't have it any other way. Jax, our Maltipoo is not little either. If his face and coat didn't look so much like a Maltese, I would swear he is something else with his size. They said he was part Standard Poodle. I can't picture a Maltese and a Standard Poodle, but who knows.

Thanks everyone, I will definitely have a lot of questions.

Linda Mom to Jax, Mali and Mandi

Hello Linda,
Welcome to the forum! We'd love to see more photos of Mandi and Jax. (I assume Mandi is your Hav's name?)

Hi Linda,

Welcome to the group. You'll find it a great place to relax and hang out, smiling and shedding a few tears over our babies and all our extended family all over the world. I look forward to seeing more of both your fur babies as you figure us all out.
