Picking up a puppy tomorrow

Hi,
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.
Thanks
Ken

Welcome to the forum. BMD are such beautiful dogs. There are two in my area and they are such gentle dogs. I'm sure you're BMD will not be quite sure what to make of a Havanese puppy but I'm sure he'll enjoy it.

Chances are if your parents never had kids...you won't either...

Oh Ken and Family Welcome!!! I am so sorry for your loss(es). We just lost our 11 y/o lab this summer, and he and our 2 y/o hav were BFF's! Never thought we would be "little dog people" either, but.... Well our hav is so lost without our lab we pick up our 2nd hav Wed. So maybe we will be going through this together! GOOD luck with your crew, and once again welcome. This has been such a GREAT place for advice, support and just plain old "shoulder" for me what ever I needed. - Michelle

He is a very mild mannered Berner and has been around smaller dogs so I don't anticipate any problems. My parents have a Berner with 3 small dogs and
the 3 small dogs act like they are large and in charge. The Berner just stays out of the way and takes it all in.

Ken I have to tell you our lab was large, 120lbs, and our hav is small,, 9lbs. Ozzie our lab was the kindest and sweetest to this hav who just tortured him. But they were the BEST team on earth. I know you will hav a great time with the two of them. And thanks for your kind words on our loss.
