Talking Late Introduction and a few ??????

Hi everyone,

I have been lurking for a while. I thought I would finally introduce myself and my little furry baby Rocco. I just fall more in love with my fluffy muffin-head every day!!

I am a stay at home mom of 3 (15, 9 and 2 yrs). I love animals so...we have 2 dogs including my 12 yr old Lab Sammy and Rocco our 4 1/2 mo. old Havanese. Two cats, Keno and Roseanne who are 15 and 16 yrs. We also have two fish and two frogs. We live in Seattle, but luckily have a "decent" yard and great places to take the dogs.


I just can't tell you how much I have enjoyed this forum. I have looked towards it for answers and advice on lots of new puppy questions.


There are just a few things I'm unsure about at this point. At what point do I trim the hair between Rocco's toes? I am pretty nervous about it, I don't want him to loose any toes in the process . Also, do I need to express anal glands...ewww. I am doing all the "grooming" at this point. Will I know if I need to??


I was very excited to find Saydeesmomma, Saydee is Roccos sister from the same litter...boy what are the chances!! It is great to compare notes.

I love the new pics of Rocco. I wish I could see your avatar picture close up. He's so Havanese beautiful and fluffy, getting so big, just like Saydee, imagine that!

A big "welcome to the forum" from Roxie and I!
How fun to have a "sister" on the forum.
I'm sorry... I don't know anything about grooming, but I'm sure
someone will be by to answer your questions.

Hello Michelle and Rocco and to the forum! Rocco sure is a cutie! We need bigger pictures of him, though... please post some!

The hair between the pads (I think that's what you mean by toes? LOL) should be trimmed whenever it's growing over the pads - you'll notice he will slip and slide more if you have hardwood floors. I use a small trimmer, but scissors work just as well.

Anal glands I would not express unless there's a reason to do it. Kubrick has never had his expressed (he's 17 months old) and he is just fine. Some of them need them expressed and some don't. I wouldn't worry about it unless you find out that Rocco needs it.
