I am a newish member. I have not mastered this site yet, so I hope I am doing this right! I have been reading a lot of the old threads and wanted to bring up something I felt might be important to the new puppy parents. I was reading about WEIGHTS of everyone's dogs. I notice a few of the pups to be very small. I don't want to alarm anyone, but it might be wise to do a BILE ACID test on your pup, if she/he is undersized. When I say undersized, I mean under the standard. There is a conditon know as a liver shunt that can cause Havanese to be small. My 6lb adult havanese had it and she did not have any symtoms. I just thought I would mention this for what it's worth, just in case you didn't read any of the old liver shunt threads.
This is a nice group and I hope it time to get to know you guys!
