Hi Everyone! My name is Elaine and I got my first Havanese in May. His name is Drew and he is 5 months old. I am so in love with this puppy. He has a goofy personality. The Havanese has been my dream dog for awhile now. I wasn't planning on getting a Havanese until sometime this fall because my husband was going through chemo for colon cancer. I thought when he was finish with chemo, then I would start to look. Well, I am impatient when it comes to looking. So I said to myself "You can look and check out different breeders but, you have to wait until fall". Well, that didn't happen. I saw Drew in the newspaper and fell in love with him. I drove 50 miles in rush hour just to look at him. I told myself I was just looking. Well, needless to say he came home with me the next day.

Drew is always happy and go lucky. He loves everyone and everything. We have a 11 year old basset hound mix and they get along fine. We also have a cat and Drew can't figure out why the cat doesn't play with him. Our other dog and the cat have an understanding. They leave eachother alone. Not Drew, he wants to play. So the cat is always hissing and swatting at him. I am sure he will learn one day. I am so happy to have found this sight. I have to have my husband help me post pictures. I am not to smart with a computer. Well, I have babbled on long enough. I can't wait to meet you all.

Hi Elaine,
Drew looks sooo adorable! What a cute face. My husband has been going through chemo too and our little pooch sure helps us to laugh alot. At first we were worried about having a puppy around when my husband's immune system was so low but it hasn't been a problem at all. In fact Dudley is the best medicine of all! Enjoy all of Drew's antics ... the puppy days go by so fast. All the best to your husband.
Dudley's Mom,

Hi Val,
I have to agree with you. Drew has wormed his way into my hubby's heart. He makes us laugh all of the time. Even during his chemo weeks, my husband would find the strength to play with him. All of my family members thought I was crazy for getting a puppy but, I really do think it has lifted hubby's spirits. Now, he would never admit it. HEHE! I hope all goes well with your husband. I know what a stressful time this can be.

Elaine! Drew is absolutely adorable....what a cute face, and it looks like he's smiling in his avatar. I had to laugh at the story about your cat. I hope that your husband (and Val's) will be better soon!
