Another new comer :)

Hi everyone,
I am new to the forum and have really enjoyed reading all the posts... well, not ALL the posts because there are so many - But it sure is nice to find so many people who love these little dogs like I do. I have a new little guy. He's 3 months old. I've had him since he was 10 weeks and if I could figure out how to make his picture appear as my profile picture like many of you have, I would.

I adopted my first Havanese 7 years ago and fell so in love with their temperament and adorable, expressive eye's and soft, silky hair. They love everyone and everything. I've never seen that before in other dogs I've owned. I had to give my first little guy to my nephew a couple years ago because of a bad divorce and major move. SO HARD!!! But, my nephew loves him and he is part of his family now. I'm very thankful for that. But, boy was I ever missing my companion.

Well, I have remarried a wonderful man who realized how much I was missing having a dog (especially a Havanese) and he said for my birthday he would get me one. I had to do the ground work, he didn't know how. Now, you all need to know, he is not a dog person. Never had one. He let his kids have one OUTSIDE when they were young, but that didn't last long. So, this is amazing. His kids said "he must really love you to get you a dog" ... Well.... long story short - after we had him for 2 weeks, he wanted to change his name from Sparky to Mikey because, he said, he has way to much personality for just a "Sparky". (my husbands name is Michael). Don't ya just love it!!! It's never to late to become a Havanese dog lover - he's 65!

Congrats on your new baby and also for having a wonderful hubby who gave you the greatest birthday gift of all! It doesn't surprise me that 'Mikey' has stolen his heart!
We really would love to see you post some pictures!!!
