Picking up a puppy tomorrow
Brand new to forum.
Here is my story-
My parents got a Havanese about 9 months ago and we fell in love from the minute we met him. I was not a fan of small dogs but this is one that I could definitely make part of my family. Fast forward to August when we had to put down one of our three Bernese Mountain dogs because of bad hips. She just could not walk anymore. It was very traumatic for our family. She was 8 years old. That left us with 2 Berners. Well just yesterday we had to put down another one. This was our first one and he was 13. Very old for that breed. We actually got him before 2 of our 3 kids were born. He had a great life and I only wish every pet owner has the kind of experience we had. He was not a dog but a member of our family. That leaves us with one Berner. He has never been alone and is very sad. It breaks my heart to look at him but he has plenty of love from his human family.
We knew that when we got down to one Berner that we wanted to find a Havanese Well somehow with a little luck we happen to stumble on one. My wife is going to see her tomorrow. She is 14 weeks old and looks great. Hopefully by this time tomorrow, we will have a new family member.Just the anticipation of getting another dog has really helped the kids get over the loss of Berners. Wish us luck, we could use a little.
