New puppy owners

Hello Everyone,
My wife and I purchased a hav puppy 3 weeks ago. We had a 13 year old keeshond rescue but he had been sick off and on all summer and the inevitable time came. I knew getting busy with a puppy would take my mind off losing my best friend so we went in search of a dog. We considered a pug among others but when we saw this little black/gray havanese who loved to cuddle it was over. We considered doing another rescue but it can be harder to find a specific breed in reasonable travel distance. House training isn't going too bad for just 3 weeks. A big help is she will not pee on the couch or bed. She will get our attention when on the couch or wake us up to go out in the morning. I'm sorry I can't post a pic but will soon. She's the cutest dog I've ever seen and everyone who sees her agrees.

Hey kawboy, to our lovely Forum. I'm sure the male section will be very pleased to get some more testosterone on here, LOL. What's your puppy's name, gender, age? We all need

I am a newbie here also, and am among others who have just recently lost a beloved dog....(in October). If you go to the Coffee Shop area there is a thread there called "Let Me Introduce Myself"... where you will be lavishly welcomed by all of the forum members.

Can't wait to see photos of your new baby!!

Welcome Kawboy,

You're going to be so happy with your choice of breed. These little ones are so charming and sweet, they tend to wrap us around their little tails. What's her name? And please, when you can, post her picture (or several). You'll find we love our photos.

So sorry for your recent loss. I've been there, done that many times. It's so hard to let them go, but your new little one will certainly keep you busy . . . and smiling.
