New Member - New Puppy!

Hello,

I am a new Havanese owner. I have raised Siberian Huskies for the past 15 years. Unfortunately we lost my best friend in November. I was devastated. We searched for a new breed as we just aren't ready to get another Siberian Husky. We found the Havanese and adopted one. Her name is Darley and we've had her for 2 and half weeks. She is wonderful, smart, energetic... a real joy. Unfortunately the first week I just sobbed and sobbed as it reminded me so much of the dog I lost. I'm slowing healing from that.

Our first little hitch so far is that she has dry skin and itchy ears. I noticed her ear is bleeding. I had taken her to the vet for her shots on Friday and they looked in her ears and said they were perfect, but she's bleeding on the outer ear, so off to the store to get some ear cleaner for her.

(Her name Darley is a company that makes Fire engines, my husband named her and he's a firefighter)... oh and is COMPLETELY in love with her, tells me 20 times a day "I love her so much".

I will try to attach a photo of her and her "sister" my 9 year old Siberian.

Welcome to all of you....what a great looking little girl you have there!! It looks like Darley and her sister will get along just fine!

It is so hard to loose our furbabies and many on the forum know what you are going through. It's never easy.....but I'm happy that you have found the Havanese and this forum! Hope you figure out how to make Darley's ears feel better....

Sorry about your loss and I hope your new little one is comforting you. Both of your girls are gorgeous! I love the eyes of the Siberians- took me a bit to get used to but they are gorgeous!

Welcome to the forum. Darley is a cutie! Love your Siberian. I had a lab/husky cross that I miss a lot. Hope to see more of your furbabies on the forum.

Welcome to the group and to the wonderful world of Havanese ownership. I'm sure Darley will help heal the pain in your heart. No dog can take the place of a beloved pet who's gone to the rainbow bridge, but a hav can make you smile and fall in love all over again.

This is a wonderful place to learn, to share your stories and to get advice from people who've been there. Enjoy every minute with your new baby. Both your girls are beautiful.

Thank you everyone. Yes the girls play great together, my Siberian may step on her or paw her a little hard but they love each other. The puppy cries in the morning when the BIG dog is still sleeping in the other room, she can't wait for her to get up!

It's funny because the Sibe was never a "cuddler" but with Darley she doesn't have a choice!
