Talking Havanese = Velcro dog?

I know these Havanese are companion dog but man I did not expect them to practically glued to their owner to wherever they go, they can't seems to let you outta their sight, it's hard to have some privacy and alone time anymore, like when you need to use the bathroom.... LOL

That's one of the reasons we love them so!
It's really fun when 3 dogs follow you all around the house.

Ceylon thinks when I go to the bathroom that it's his personal "me" time! Seriously, he follows me in and when I can't escape, he puts his front paws on my knees and waits to be petted

Imagine if you had some medical condition where you might pass out or something. Just think of how alert your dog would be immediately. Then he would just pick up the smart phone and dial 911.

I think it's so adorable as long as it's what they all do and it's not my dog feeling anxiety. I don't know how he does it, really. We can both be lounging on the sofa. He's sleeping. I quietly move to get up, and he immediately snaps his head up and turns around, like "She's moving!!" Then he watches me, "Where are you going? Out of eye sight? I'm jumping off the sofa and I'm there right behind you!!" And if I'm in the bathroom, he thinks, "I'll just plop right down here and take a nap and rest my head on your feet."

My kids never even followed me anywhere as much as Tiimy. It's kind of funny when we're all in the family room watching tv and I get up to do something Timmy of course follows. If anyone else leaves the room he'll stay put unless of course someone in the kitchen sounds like they're eating something yummy then all deals are off. I must say though it is very flattering and heart warming to have someone so devoted.

Yep Brody sure is. I thought I was prepared for it because my parents had had a Bichon, but Brody sticks to me like glue way worse than the Bichon did (and he was always under foot). Brody is actually pretty good about not tripping me up though, but he's always there.

He only doesn't follow me in the bathroom when I'm going to have a shower (somehow he seems to fear he might be next) or if I have just bathed him (he seems to think I might do it again).

He's been that way since the moment I got him...my own little shadow and it doesn't matter how dead to the world he is or how quietly I try to tiptoe away...I turn around and there he magically is!

Whimsy is like glue too. Sometimes I just close her out of the bathroom and she will lay patiently on the other side, smack up against the door, till I come out.

I'm so glad to hear I'm not the only one with a stalker Hav!. I refer to her as my little stalker or my shadow.
