Talking Getting Murphy at the end of January

Hi all....jumping into doggy-hood again after 6 years without a dog. We had a pug for 12 years. He was a great dog, but he shed alot!! I think a havanese sounds like a great fit for us. I totally forget how to crate train, etc. We are excited and scared. We have 3 children: 15, 12, and 10. We live in NJ.

Yay! Congrats on the new furbaby!!

All I have to say is that all those promises the kids make, "Oh yes, Mom, I will help care for the puppy," go out the window if their favorite tv show, video game, etc. is on.

I have a 9 and 12 yr.old... Oh, the drama if I ask them to run Jack out. "Mom, it is cold." "Mom, it isn't my turn." "Mom, why are you growling? Mom? Mom?"

Welcome!!!! A new puppy. My kids were very good with their dogs growing up. Most times they did clean up after them. My granddaughter always helps when she stays here she cleans up the poop out side, cleans their paws if they come in dirty and measures their food and feeds them. She loves taking care of things. So sometimes we get lucky. Can't wait to see pictures and hearing all about him.

Welcome to the group. I know you must be really excited - but don't be scared. You are going to be so in love with this breed and they really do become the favorite family member. Be sure to post pics and keep us updated.

Congratulations on Murphy! I bet you cannot wait till the end of the month. It is so exciting to think that your new baby will be home in just a few weeks.
Do you have any pictures?? Where are you getting him from?

Welcome to the Forum. I am a newbie and this is the best way to find just about any thing. Everyone is so very supportive. Be careful Havanese are addicting. I am looking for my second one. I too live in New Jersey, Burlington County. Any brothers or sisters available?
