Introducing myself... and Hudson!

I have been lurking on this forum for the last couple months, reading and absorbing so much valuable information -- and enjoying all your adorable photos!
Now, it's my turn. After months of research, we've decided to add a Havanese to our family and we couldn't be more thrilled. I have a husband and two sons (11 and 14) and no other pets in the house. Both my youngest son and I are allergic to dogs and came across this breed when looking for (relatively) hypoallergenic dogs. We've spent a good amount of time with several Havanese and haven't had any problems, so we are very hopeful this will work out for us.
Today was our big day. We visited our breeder and picked out our puppy! Assuming all goes well over the next six weeks, we'll bring Hudson home in mid-August. We realize that we can't really evaluate his temperament at this young age (he's just 2-1/2 weeks old), but we'll be working with the breeder (and visiting often) to make sure he's a good fit for us when the time comes. Until then, we are very hopeful that he's our guy.
I'm sure I'll have lots of questions for you experts over the coming weeks and months; you've already helped more than you can imagine! I'm so excited to join in the cute-photo-posting process.
Thank you!

Very cute. Have fun watching him develop. The wait is hard, but it's also very rewarding too.

Welcome Ellen! What a fun time for you, it is lucky you get to visit Hudson. The time will go quickly at first and then it will seem like forever...and then he's finally home and the adventure begins.

I LOVE the name Hudson!! I was thinking of using it with my Hav puppy (who I eventually named Sawyer), but I am saving it for when I get a Bernese Mountain Dog. That will be far far in the future... Congrats on your new baby!
