More often than not lately, my days are filled with the following: grocery shopping, fabric shopping, quilt sewing, house cleaning, cooking, etc. It's not often anymore that I go out of my way to do something not practical or necessary. Talk about rut!!! Recently though, I met a lady online and not living too far away from me on a Havanese forum. She was in process of getting a puppy when we met and told me of her breeder about an hour from my house. Well, I'm a sucker for puppies (just like the next guy) so decided to round up my neighbor and take a nice fall trip to meet her and her dogs. Besides, I LOVE puppies and in the back of my mind am always thinking of getting a companion for our Toby.
What fun! She had 6 adult dogs of her own, had two litters (one with 3 puppies 7 weeks old and one litter with 5 puppies 2 weeks old), and her sister's dog of 8 months. Wow, talk about dogs! Thankfully, Havanese are little dogs to start with, normally not much over 13 lbs full grown but with all of them (except the tiny babies) moving around, I could hardly keep them straight! My neighbor and I had a seat on some chairs and just watched the action.
I think if she would have had one that looks like this, I would have snatched him up and hid him in my purse. I am dying for a "bandit" looking Havanese just like this little guy that I found on Puppyfind, but who was already sold. He was 10 weeks in this picture and his name was "Lucky". Not lucky enough as far as I'm concerned. He would have been luckier being with ME!!! lol
I did find this 4 month old sweetie on the Prairiwind site and she is a cutie too, but I'm thinking we'd really like another boy! Toby is the first boy dog we've ever had and I'm so sorry now I never tried the boy dogs before! They're 100 times more loving.....really!!! I can't believe it, myself!
So, that was my fun! I think I will be back to visit Patty, the breeder, again. After all, those tiny babies are getting older now and might need a stranger to give them some lovin' before they find their forever homes. Until then, I guess I'll go back to quilting. lol
