You know, I naturally cringe when I read someone is giving/getting a puppy for Christmas, because I know here in about 6 months, rescue organizations will be inundated with puppies that were given as gifts and people didnt really know what they were getting into, and a havanese, especially, will tend to attach to the main caretaker (most likely mom in this instance, since 11 year olds are quite busy these days with school and dance and sports and facebook and ipads and ipods and friends and sleepovers and on and on, and then mom realizes that it was alot more work and the kids who promised to help are nowhere to be found when the puppy pees on the floor, etc...I have 7 kids and none of mine seem to be available for those moments..lol
I just really hope the whole family is in it for the long haul, they do find a place in your heart and family quickly, if you let them.
I am opposed to crate training, and we survived just fine without it, you can housebreak them w/o having to cage them, you just have to limit the space until you can trust them, xpens are great for that.
Gucci slept in bed with us since day one and she's never peed in the bed, they really do tend to avoid doing that where they sleep and she's always nudged me awake by kisses or whining to take her out in the morning, never had a problem at night.
Congratulations on your puppy! He's very cute and your daughter looks ecstatic!
