Our new family members :)

I'm new to the forum!

For a few months my husband and I have been searching for a havanese puppy. I found a breeder a couple of hours from me that had puppies! They were so CUTE I couldn't decide which one I wanted. Needless to say, I got two! We got one little tri colored girl that we named Cricket and her sister, a gold sable, that my three year old daughter named Princess Penelope, but we call her Nellie.

Well, I guess that two just wasnt enough because we then ended up with another one! LOL My mom had started looking up havanese after we had been talking about them so much. She ended up getting a little guy and when we went to visit we fell in love with him. His name is Gus. My mom said we could take him home with us if we liked him that much. Of course, she knows she'll still get to see him whenever she wants and he'll get LOTS of love at our house. Someone is almost always home here and my mom works alot so Gus will be happier here with my kids and our two little girl havs, which he LOVES.

I went from no doggies to three sweet little havanese and we are so in love with them!

Welcome! Your pups AND your kids are adorable!

Just be careful about your 3 year old carrying your pups around. Puppies are quick, strong and unpredictable. They are also very fragile, and a fall from her arms could do serious damage to their joints. It's much better to have children sit on the floor (or ground and play with the pups there. It's also a great lesson to teach that these are (baby) family members with their own needs and feeling, not play things. That's something that's hard for young children to understand when they see those cute puppies!!!

Thanks

She was only holding her for the picture. She knows she's not aloud to carry them around. She does really well with them

Thanks everyone. I do have lots of help. The kids really enjoy the puppies and they help out a lot.
I'm also curious as to how training will go with all three of them. That will probably be my biggest challenge. Currently they are all potty pad trained as long as they're in their playpen. If I allow them to run around part of the house they only use the pad sometimes.
