We are the proud parents of a 13wk sable boy named Tino. He is the sweetest sweetheart ever! He is already asking to be let out for potty which I think is genius. Separation anxiety is his only issue: he doesn't like to be left alone, even if I'm in the next room. I'm actively working on crate training (he sleeps all night in his crate without crying, and has since the first night, which I also think is genius). During the day, however, he pitches a fit. I'm working hard at crate training during the day and will eventually start leaving the room for a few minutes and increasing the time. Everyone here at Havanese Forum assures me that he will improve. It is so nice to have this forum available--I appreciate everyone's experience, wisdom, support, encouragement, and advice.
Tino is our second Havanese. He is the gr gr gr gr nephew of our first Havanese, Buster, who passed on 1/4/12 (he is the black and white in the last picture below).
Thank you so much for welcoming me into this community!
