We have joined the ranks of the Havanese Owners! Our new puppy's name is Gandorf (I know I have our login name wrong and don't know how to change it?). He is now 10 weeks old and was 9 weeks old when we got him a week ago. He now weighs 4 lbs. We have been dogless for the past two years as my wife was still getting over the loss of our two Lhasa Apsos who were brothers and lived to 16 & 17 years of age. So far he has been one great little guy and even asks to go outside to do his business, is kind of a picky eater, but reading here that sounds normal but is doing real well, LOVES to play, has barked only a couple of times and then only one or two barks because he was startled, sleeps all night by himself with no noise whatsoever. We are both retired so we have the time to be with him a lot. He is presently confined to a expen in the kitchen until we are sure he knows only to go outside. He loves the outdoors and would be perfectly content to stay there all day, but he will live inside most of the time. We have a complete dog yard for him complete with his own dog door (which is presently closed until he gets older) which our Lhasa's used which is gated so he can't get into the pool although when it is warmer we will teach him to swim and where to get out in case he does ever fall in! Did not know the breed was a "Herder" of chickens and sheep in Cuba, but that may explain why he runs and circles so quick like he does until after we got him, but that is great as we like the way he performs even at this very young age. Will let everyone know how he progresses as he ages.
Gene, Nelene & Gandorf
