Ages of wisdom: 2, 3, 5
Wow, Jessica! Rollie is a totally handsome dog! Just love your pictures!
I like to say, there are three ages of wisdom in dogs.
The first is - TWO years old; haha! Suddenly, at age two, it's always seemed to me - and quite suddenly - the dog starts showing some kind of adult judgment-capabilities. Since I've never had a Havanese before, I'm not sure how that translates into behavior! My bet is that well-cared-for Havanese NEVER lose their clowning capabilities!
And the first age of wisdom doesn't, I think, rule out clowning - not at all!
The second age of wisdom is at three years old. Again, it's quite suddenly apparent, when a dog turns three. To me, it's seemed they behave more adult at age three than they've done before.
The third age of wisdom arrives when the dog turns five years old. Camellia is about to do that, on 4 March, that'll be Sunday. Of course, her life was quite disrupted, and she didn't come to be my dog until she was already 3.5 years old, so this will be the first time I'll get to see the transformation of arriving at an age of wisdom, for Camellia.
At one year old, Rollie is halfway to the first age of wisdom. I love his face; how he looks; attentive, pleased, happy. So my inclination is to forecast (not hard to do) a great life for him with you!
Happy birthday, Rollie!
Camellia waves her Magnificent Magic Wand in agreement with me!
