My name is Dixie and I live in southern California with my husband and two kids. We currently have two Tonkinese cats that are 2 years old.
I have really enjoyed reading this forum over the last few days! I have liked the havanese breed for a few years, but until now, it didn't seem like the right time to introduce a puppy into the family.
I am so excited that we have picked out our puppy and will be bringing him home in less than 3 weeks! We got a chance to meet him, the breeder, and the parents and they were all super!
I am so thankful to everyone that has contributed to all of the testing, the gallery website, stories, and photos. All of these things helped us decide on the Havanese, and I think helped us find one that seems very healthy and happy. I know the puppy's parents are some of the sweetest and most trusting dogs I have ever met in my life!
We haven't picked a name for the puppy yet. I like the name Babaloo, but so far I am the only one
. I like it for a few reasons, it is from I Love Lucy's cuban character, Ricky Ricardo. I like it because our last name is Ballew (my FIL name is Bob btw). Lastly I like Baloo the bear from Disney's Jungle Book. My old license plates use to be DaBaloo.
I think we would mainly call him Baloo, but his full name would be Babaloo. My husband said people will just think we are calling him by our last name. I don't think so though. I often get compliments on our last name and often refer to Baloo the bear.
I am very happy to be here and can't wait to share pictures of our little guy
