We're new to the Forum and I had a question about our new little girl!
First, let me tell you alittle about us! We have three beautiful and wonderful Havanese dogs! Sunshine is 5 1/2 and we've had her since she was 12 weeks old, Skippy is 3 1/2 and we have had him since he was 8 weeks old! A week and half ago, we adopted Jaime from HRI, she is 6 years old. Of course, they are all just the sweetest and most wonderful little dogs! We just have enjoyed Sunshine and Skippy so much since we got them and they are just so much fun and so good with our boys. We have two sons, 9 & 5! Therefore, about 6 months ago, we decided we wanted a third but didn't want a puppy again. I did some research and was so drawn to HRI! Like I said, we adopted Jaime a week and half ago and it has been one of the best decisions we could have made.
Jaime is just such a jewel! I can't begin to tell you how sweet and how special she is! We feel blessed that she is now part of the family! The three of them are still working out their issues and I'm assuming this will take some time but I can already see small bonding steps between the three of them.
I realize now, how different it is to raise them from puppies and adopting as a mature adult! One thing that Jaime does that is very curious to me is that whenever, she is very excited (ie. when she sees me after I have been out), she spins around in circles, sometimes twice, sometimes 5, 6 times. She also seems to do this when I'm giving either Sunshine or Skippy attention.
Did I mention, Jaime is very attached to me, I am never out of her sight and she is never more then 2 feet away from me!
I'm thinking that this circling may just be her way of dealing with some form of stress! I'm sure for the next 6 months, I'll see new and interesting behavors from her, but I thought I would ask!
