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
