Introducing Emmy <3
I am THRILLED to introduce to you my Emmy <3
She is so sweet, cuddly and fun. She loves to play fetch and just play, period. She is very curious as most 11 week old puppies are.
I cannot thank Tom and Pam King from Starborn Havanese enough (Emerald from Ellie's 3/16 litter). You put so much thought and heart into raising these pups and properly placing them. I feel like Emmy was meant for me, we have bonded so quickly. She has been home for 24 hours, and she slept for 6 hours in the crate night 1 and is sleeping in it again right now; she has not had any accidents (hooray for litter boxes) - she literally stopped a fantastic tug of war match to run to the litter box, pee and come running back to me; eats her food well and is much more cuddly than I thought she would be (I guess the videos don't quite capture it).
No puppy is perfect, and I know we will have some chaos too.. but for now I am just so happy and I feel whole again (lost Honey in November).
Again, I am so grateful, Tom - to you and Pam - from the updates/pics, to the puppy swag bag (I felt like I was Mary Poppins reaching into her magic bag) to the advice about yoga music - which is playing right now to let Emmy know to sleep. Driving from NJ this weekend was a little chaotic due to both COVID19 & the demonstrations, but the minute I met Emmy, I was in love.
Anyway, are a few pics.. I have some videos too but I am not sure how to share them - I love the Havi trot while playing fetch.. I have more on her instagram page @EmmyHavanese.

(I am thinking of having her AKC name be: Starborn's Emerald Gem of Jersey
Edited to add (ETA): I spoke a little too soon - she wanted to play after posting this, but then settled in to sleep - slept for about 4 hours before whining to pee. then wouldnt go back in the crate and started wimpering when I tried to put her back in... so we cuddled for a bit and now she is asleep on my legs.
I havent really slept and I do think I made a mistake by putting her plastic crate on my bed facing my face. I don't have a table or something my height other than just having her on the bed with me - I wanted to ease her transition, but I can't sleep well. Any suggestions about transitioning the crate to being on the floor of the bedroom? Or just let her sleep on the bed? I do need to leave her confined when I go out or go back to work, so I want her to love her crate and not get anxiety from it. Thanks for any suggestions <3
