Smile Our puppy comes home tomorrow!

Hello Everyone!

I'm new to this forum (thanks to a fellow member who referred me here)

Let me start off by saying that this past week has been INSANE!

I finally caved and after speaking with my husband last weekend, we agreed to start our search in finding the right dog/puppy for our family. We knew we wanted a smaller breed for the sake of the kids having a friend they could play and interact with (if I had my way, we'd be getting a Doberman, but this isn't only about me!) Anyways.....researching various breeds, we knew that we wanted a dog with a fabulous temperament and personality. Came down to 2 breeds: Coton de Tulear and the Havanese. You can guess which one won and it wasn't easy as my DH's friend/co-worker has 2 Cotons, & a fabulous breeder

Well, a friend of mine (member here, same as above!) has a Havanese and knowing this, she was able to put me in touch with a fabulous local breeder. I really connected with this breeder- they are fabulous....so much so, that their litters are normally spoken for way in advance. And as they had decided to take a break for awhile, they probably weren't expecting any litters until early next year. BUT.......................

They put me in touch with another breeder. Equally fabulous and who had pups almost ready to go. One thing led to another, and we had a great connection as well (that is very important to us as we have had breeder NIGHTMARES in the past....another story for another time).

So long story short.......our puppy, a little girl, who is healthy, happy, playful, fun, loves cuddles, and is amazing to us in every way, is coming home tomorrow!!! We are SO excited!!

I'm excited for you. Welcome to the forum. Your friend pointed you in the direction of a fun and crazy future with your little girl. Do you have any photos of your baby yet? We are insatiable.

Thank you for the warm welcome. I'm not new to forum life, but I have a feeling I'll be hanging out here quite a bit. I hope to entertain you with our stories and frustrations!!!

I will of course post pictures! I only have 2 or 3 from the breeder so far, but I promise, no matter how exhausted, I will try to post some new ones this weekend!

Here's one photo that's my personal fave



She's a "Sable" colour and will lighten considerably from what I've been told (and have read)

Thank You!

Finding books on the breed is near impossible. But I plan on asking the breeder lots of questions & getting some help here along the way. It's been a looooooong time since I had a dog & times have changed a bit in terms of how they're trained now.

Oh I love Lola! (Name and puppy!)

ETA: Thanks for knowing the difference between the dog you need and the dog you want! I want a Rott but it doesnt fit in my life right now and wouldnt be fair to the dog to get one.
