Hi, I'm new here!
Hi everyone, my name is Debbie and I am new here. My Hav's name is Jammies and she is the sweetest thing. I found out the week that I was getting her that she had a heart murmur. Before you ask, the breeder is standing behind her guarantee. We have become great friends. Anyhow, the closest cardiologist to us (we live in the Pittsburgh area) is at Ohio State University. So my husband, the breeder, myself and Jammies went to Ohio State. To make a long story short, Jammies has 4 things wrong with her heart, the most major one is that she has a hole in her heart and she can not be operated on, even to be spayed. I don't know how long I will have her, but her and I have the strongest bond. The cardiologist said she may live a year or two and he has one dog that has lived to be 5 years old. I have so many people praying for my Jammies.
Back in 2006, within an 8 month period, my Grams, my brother and my mother died. My brother and my mom died 51 days apart. Needless to say, I was a mess. I finally talked my husband into letting me get another dog (we already have a sheltie). I knew that I wanted a Havanese, because my old neighbor had one and I babysat her everyday while my neighbor worked. I already had Jammies name picked out before my husband agreeded to letting me get her. I named her Jammies after my mom (JAnet) and my Grams....thus becoming Jammies. I can't bear the thought of losing her. She is as sweet as can be. We went to visit her brother, Murphy Moe (his mom is the one who lead me to this site) and we had so much fun. I met Murphy's mom on the internet and I was telling her I was getting a Havanese, and after researching them, she got Jammies' brother, Murphy. We have become the best of friends!
Sorry for the length of this, I just wanted to let you know who I am, who Jammies is and to thank you for letting me join this group!
Debbie (Jammies' mamma)
