Wanted to say hello and introduce myself :)

Hello!

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

Welcome! I personally love the name as that is what I planned to name my next havanese. I figured I would get a male next time and it seemed such a fun name.

Welcome Dixie. Can't wait to see pictures of your boy. Bubbaloo was actually one of the name choices for our Jasper-- we would have mostly called him Bubba- but since my husband is from down south we thought his family may think we were making fun of them. What ever name you decide we can't wait to see pictures...




Missy, Jasper & Cash

Hey I like Bubba for a name... It reminds me of Forest Gump with the Bubba Gump Shrimp Factory. I think Forrest is a good name as well. It has Charachter to it.
