The BIG DAY!

Well - today's the day. We will be heading to Enumclaw in about an hour. Can't wait to get the little guy home!

I'm taking vacation next week for some "super-bonding". I'll post some pictures as soon as I get a chance.

Thanks for all the help and encouragement from you great Havanese folks. I'm sure I'll have a lot more questions during the next several months!

Have a GREAT weekend!

How exciting!!! We'll be waiting to hear all about it! We had visited Augie at around 6 weeks I think. It was amazing the change in him at 8 weeks.

I meant to mention , it's great to take a week off work for this. One word of caution though. Practice leaving him for very short periods of time in his crate and extend this to more and more gradually. One of the mistakes people do is spend 24/7 with their new pup and then when they go back to work ,there is this great difference and the problem of separation anxiety begins. more reading if you're interested http://www.dogstardaily.com/training/separation-anxiety

1st Pic at Home!

He was an angel on the 3 hour drive home. He whimpered for about 4 or 5 minutes and then fell asleep on Gloria's chest. He woke up several times, licked her face and went back to sleep!

He was VERY hungry and ate as soon as we got home. It's windy as heck here today (as usual) but I took him outside after he ate and after about 5 minutes he pooped outside for the first time in his life! What a good boy.

He's sleeping like the baby he is right now. I'm ready for a game of catch on the beach, but it may be awhile!

I'll try not to bore you too much, but it's hard to NOT take photos and talk about him all the time.

Thanks again for all the help.

J
