Smile New Havanese Momma - 1 MILLION Questions

I'm a new momma to a beautiful baby girl, Saydee, who is an adorable black and white wonderdog to say the least. She is the most playful, intelligent dog I've ever known and so much fun!

I have so many questions for all you professional Hav parents and have spent days pouring through the threads of this forum for answers to questions and still have more!

I'll start with this question:
I used to have 2 sweet Maltese sisters that both passed away this year. I won't even go into the grief and total heartache. Millie and Zoe were only 9 years old! My question is this: Millie and Zoe were both TOTAL lap dogs and loved to get as physically close to me as they could. If I sat down, there was instantly someone in my lap. They would lay up against me in bed, and cuddle SO close.

My NEW baby Saydee is now 14 weeks and she doesn't cuddle! When I try to hold her, she squirms away! She sweetly licks me and definately enjoys my company - it's not that we haven't bonded. It's just that after having such cuddlebug doggies before, this is a shock for me. Is this a puppy thing, or a Havanese thing, or just a Saydee thing?

I'll save more questions for later. I've got plenty more to come, mostly about groooooooming! AHHHH! I'm so glad I found this forum! Maya

Welcome to the forum, Maya -- Saydee's adorable!
MacGyver wasn't a cuddlebug when he was little, but now his very favorite place is in a lap. He still hates to be picked up, though -- I think they're all a little different.

Congratulations on your new little girl!

Welcome Maya, to our big family. Your girl is adorable!! She may simply be going thru the "terrible twos" and wants to be independant. She may become more cuddly as she gets older. All three of mine are different in terms of affection! Cant wait to see more pictures.

Oh good! That's encouraging. I keep thinking she's just in puppy mode and doesn't want to waste her precious time snuggling when there are very important toys to be chewed...


P.S. I'll proudly display more pics when I get a chance to navigate the control panel - THX

Welcome to the forum. I am sure that you will get a lot of help here. Jillee and Betzie are my two havanese and sometimes they cuddle and sometimes they don't just depends on them. I am sure over time she will want to cuddle more.

Saydee is a cutie pie. I think they are all a little different. Cicero seems to have gotten more clingy lately at 9 months. He now wants to jump in our lap and will stay forever.

Saydee is adorable!! Welcome to you both!
Stella was a year and May and although I wouldn't classify her as a cuddlebug, she's getting more clingy as time goes on.
