Talking A new but oh so proud Havanese owner, a TON of puppy pictures :))

Hi there all! I have a beautiful female Havanese named Brees, she will be 23 weeks old tomorrow and she has been with my fiance and I since Feb. 1st when she was 10 weeks old. She came from my fiance's aunt as a wedding present from her girl Kiera's litter of gorgeous Havanese puppies. My future mother-in-law already has one Havanese from Aunt Linda's other girl, Pipper, and Chad and I just fell in love with his mom's Hav, Domino, but had no intention of getting our own...that is until Christmas Day of this year. We were waiting for the rest of the family to arrive between opening gifts and having dinner and Aunt Linda suggested that the girls take trip out to visit Kiera's new puppies, who had been born on Nov. 21st, the day Chad & I got engaged! So all my future in laws- mother, aunt, cousin, and sister-in-laws piled in the car for a little visit. Kiera's litter was of 7 pups, and there was a very special little puppy who almost didn't make it during birth, #3. And #3 and I bonded immensely...from the first time we locked eyes! I knew that I was in love...and my sister-in-law was snapping pictures the whole time. Linda offered us a puppy at a significant discount, since they are AKC registered, as a wedding gift...I was getting sucked in more & more by the minute! Well, by the time we left, I was telling Linda that I'd ask Chad if we could get a puppy, to which Chad's mother responded "You know, dear, sometime it is better to ask forgiveness than permission"...so I told Linda I'd take this beautiful #3 ! Chad couldn't say no when saw the picture of his future wife and his now future Hav.....

He said yes, as long as he could name her...at first this was a little concerning for me, but then he said "How about we name her Brees?" As in, Drew Brees. Coming from Central Pennsylvania, Chad is a Steelers fan, and even though I too have lived in Central PA my whole life, I am a Saints fan to the core. I love anything and everything relating to the city of New Orleans. I fell in love with Chad all over again when he not only said I could get this new lovey puppy but also named her after my team? What a great man!
And now we are a full fledged Havanese lovers, because when she tagged along to visit my new baby with me, my mom fell in love with Brees' twin sister, Puppy #5, who soon became to be known as Nola (do you notice a theme!) Brees and Nola are going to be big girls- their dad isn't named Moose for no reason!
All in all, this was just a post to say hello and introduce the momma's baby girl, Brees. I've been reading the forum since before Brees came home & I'm so grateful for all the advice, I thought it's time I introduced myself as the proud owner of this perfect little baby girl!
I hope you all enjoy my girl, and I hope all your Havs are doing well! I feel so lucky to be such a proud owner of my baby girl, Brees. She has literally changed my life. I know that may sound a little silly- maybe not to all of you! But I have fibromyalgia and suffer from depression at times because of the chronic pain and fatigue. Not only does Brees wipe away any ounce of depression I may have and gives me gentle exercise with her walks, but she seems to know when I am in pain and will lay wherever I'm in pain like my own little heating pad. She just knows what to do, so many times you can find me on our couch studying, with my Breeser baby laying across my shoulders and neck to ease some of the pain. She is just such a joy in our lives! And now Pipper, Aunt Linda's other Hav, is having a litter again in about a week!.....I know my mom is considering getting Nola a playmate so she won't be so lonely when Brees, Chad, and I move out of the adjoining apartment in August...maybe I can convince Chad that Brees too needs a playmate...she'll miss her sissy! We'll have to see, I mean two Havs are better than one, are they not? But then I don't know, I just want to shower Brees with all my love and affection, I don't know how I could love a dog like I do her- I've had dogs all my life, mainly goldens and one plot hound. And while I loved them and I took care of them, they were either my parents or my brother's dogs and I didn't really fancy myself to be an animal person. Boy, was I ever wrong!
Now...enjoy some pictures of my girl & her sissy Nola, as well as some SERIOUS cuteness overload!

Picture captions are below! Just in case you were interested

1.) Brees & I, complete love at first sight, just shy of 5 weeks old, Christmas Day 2011.

Aww.. Welcome to you and Bress! Such a cute little girl and a cute name too.. We're big Steelers fans here, live around and work in Pittsburgh, but I guess Roethlisberger just wouldn't work so good as a puppy name, haha. I almost had my husband's okay to name Sonic after my favorite Pengiun, Fluery, but Sonic fits him so well that I can't complain.

Linda, Sonic & Aries' Mom

I love your special little girl and even more, I love your story. So happy you decided to stop lurking and start sharing. You already know you're in a good place here.

LOVE the name Brees Louise!! awesome!!!
Welcome to the forum, we can NEVER have enough pictures and completely 100% understand how much in love you are with your hav cause we are too!!
I also have fibromyalgia along with a host of other problems, Tillie is okay to just chill with me or on me, to just be WITH me. It helps me to have someone to take care of, who NEEDS me, cause my kids certainly don't think they need me anymore! bwhahahahaa (my kids are 10 and almost 7 yrs old. LOL)

WELCOME and I look forward to getting to know you and watching Brees grow up!!

Tammy and Tillie
