How exciting for you Amala!!! Congratulations on choosing a Havanese. You won't regret it.
I only have one dog. We are really busy with freestyle and agility, so I can't imagine having two. I'm tempted, though, mind you!! We live way out in the country and there are neighbourhood dogs to play with, but mostly I arrange play dates. I do this because Tucker loves his friend Milo, a miniature Schnauzer, who's the same size as he is. He also loves Gus, a dachshund, for the same reason. We go to the dog park for walks and have figured out a time when there are dogs Tucker likes to play with there. Some are bigger and some are his size.
So, what I'm getting to is that you'll figure it out! Things seem to happen for a reason and opportunities will present themselves that you never imagined!
For example, three huge (HUGE) dogs live near us and Tucker absolutely loves them. They come into our yard and we have a great visit almost every day. I lived here for 8 years before getting a dog and never saw these dogs before Tucker arrived.
However, I don't know that I'd get 2 dogs at the same time. I have had so much fun watching one dog grow and change. I'm still learning about grooming, which I'm trying to do mostly myself. But, I think you've done a lot of thinking and are getting prepared for your puppy.
Best of luck! Can't wait to see pics of your new puppy!!!
