So... I'm brining my havanese home Monday...

He's being flown in from out of state. What can I expect?

What can I do to make him feel at home and help him not to get sick on the hour car-drive home?

Any other suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you!

btw-- I'm new to the havaneseforum (:

Welcome to the forum! Your puppy will probably be nervous and a little traumatized by the flight. I would probably talk softly to him but maybe keep him in his crate where he feels secure. Good luck and be sure to take lots of pictures for us!

I will! (:

What should I do about food? I probably shouldn't feed him right away... But I don't want to risk hypoglycemia... Maybe a few small bites of food and a little bit of bottled water over a few cubes of ice?

Welcome to the group! You must be so excited to be getting your baby so soon. All three of mine were flown to me and aside from Milo, who was the first, there was no problem at all. There really wasn't an issue with Milo either. It was just that he flew in on a very hot (within the heat guidelines) day in August and we had delays because of storms in other parts of the country.

With each of mine I had someone go with me to the airport so if I couldn't hold the new baby, my friend could. I recommend you have paper towels, possibly a wee wee pad, some water, though the dog will likely have some left in the crate from the trip.

You'll get a lot of great advice here so sit back and relax. Oh, just one thing, we will badger you for photos. We all love our puppy fixes.

I don't think I would try food at least until you're home. What's one more hour and you don't want him to get sick! I would offer water, though.

Thank you for the tips (:
Yeah, I'll probably just bring some water, paper towels, etc.
Maybe introduce him to a soft toy?

and I'll definitely post pictures. Where can I post them? Just on my topic here or...?

You're kidding, right? Of course we will. We're sitting here panting to see them.
