So cute! You will have lots of years with your new baby. Let your daughter feed the puppy as much as possible.

Thumbs up

Your puppy is adorable! Hope you have many good years with him

Please do not take the comments about Christmas puppies personally, unfortunately there are so many impulse puppies at Christmas that wind up in rescue, it does make some of us very leery of anything to do with a Christmas puppy. I work with an all breed rescue and it is just part of what we know happens every year- several months down the road we will get the untrained, half grown puppies that were impulse gifts at Christmas. And then they also have all sorts of problems because their owners didn't think cute, fluffy puppy would bark, chew, piddle, poop....and God forbid, grow bigger. We took in 5 purebred 8 week old husky pups the week before Christmas that were a seizure from a breeder, and fielding all the applications they generated has been a nightmare. We turned away a LOT of people that just wanted the cute little Jingle puppy to put under the tree, and had no understanding of the needs of that breed. So - sorry to rant a bit- but please understand the concern about Christmas puppies is coming from experience that has shown us that Christmas puppies often don't work out, and it is not directed at you personally at all, just at concern for the dogs.

I think just by coming to this forum, you are already many light years beyond that type of owner....and please stay in contact with this forum, it is a wonderfully positive place to learn about good doggy care! I don't post much- but have learned a lot about the breed here.

That said- my DH can get me a Havanese any Christmas- way better than jewelry! I love the idea of wrapping a stuffed puppy up- with the real one to follow the next week

Just my two cents as a groomer, usually a dog needing frequent grooming that belongs to a child ends up a matted mess and traumatized by having to be shaved bald by 9 months of age. I ask the owner, What happened here? The owner then blames their 7 yr old child for not brushing the puppy. Children are not capable of caring for high maintenance coats. Parents need to be in charge, but you can ask her to care for the coat, supervize her, and then "help" or "assist" by going over the dog afterwards.

Man I brush Ted on almost a daily basis plus give him a knot on top. Just lately he has started to mat on me so I do his brushing and knot after I work on getting rid of 1 mat. I think it's due to his new coat coming in. The 2 coats don't seem to like each other at all. One mat a day and they should be all gone in a week or just under. Ted can only stand about a half hour then he has had enough of it. I can't imagine a child even attempting their coat when they get long
