Introducing Miko!

Hi everyone. I just want to introduce Miko to this community. He turned 1 years old last Wednesday, and he has been a blessing for my girlfriend and I. We are away at work almost 10 hours a day, and he's very good at going on the puppy pads by himself. When we come back, he's waiting by the door for us and jumps all over us as soon as we step inside. He's super clingy and follows us everywhere. He sleeps above our head every night and stuffs his head between the pillows. We really want to get a second havanese to keep him company, but two things are holding us back. One is the financial responsibility. Havaneses sure are expensive to buy and maintain! But more importantly, we are scared the second havanese will not be as good as Miko in terms of being alone all day and going to the bathroom and eating on its own. I am babbling and can go on and on about Miko so I will stop myself now. Enjoy the pictures!

Caught in the act!

Welcome to the forum. Your Miko is adorable. Sounds like a typical Havanese to me. Hope we get to hear and see more. Where are you from?

Welcome, Miko is just gorgeous!! It is a very hard decision you have considering your work schedule. How did you deal with Miko when he was a baby? If you kept the pup in an expen until you trusted him/her, that might work, or have someone come in during the day. But I would have to think that it would be hard on a puppy to be away from his/her owner for that long! I have three, and I have to say that all three were very different in their needs as puppies, and how long they took to potty train etc.. good luck in your decision - but.....

in the meantime, I love the pics of Miko & cant wait to see more!!

Ah he is stunning. Isn't life grand havanese style?

I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!
Loving Havanese since 2003

Sorry for not introducing my girlfriend and I! We are in our mid 20s and just got engaged a few weeks ago. We live in Chicago, minutes away from downtown. We had Miko since he was a puppy. In the beginning, we worked from home for a little bit till he got used to the condo. Then we would leave him crated in the morning and my girlfriend would come back from work to stay with him for an hour or so for lunch and crate him till we get back in the evening. He was potty trained pretty quickly (so smart!) and we let him roam freely in the condo. There were definitely tough times but so worth it.

We did alot of research to finally decide on this breed and very glad we did. My girlfriend has severe allergies to EVERYTHING. Since we got Miko, she has to get weekly allergy shots, and we have 2 air filters running all day in the condo. She doesn't mind at all because she loves dogs.

Right now, Miko is blowing coat so it has been a real challenge to groom him. I was looking online on grooming Havanese and stumbled onto this forum. We look forward to contributing and learning more about everyone here!
