Introducing Emmy <3

Hi everyone!

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

I would get the crate on the floor now if that is where you ultimately want it. You can still offer her a comforting word or let her smell your hand through the door if needed or maybe shush her if she is whining for no reason. Remember, they will try every trick in the book to get out of being confined at first. Also remember to keep any nighttime potty trips all business. Dim lighting, minimal talking, straight to litterbox and right back to the crate. Good luck!
