She's here! Puppy update

We FINALLY picked up our new puppy. We named her Sundae. She's a chocolate girl. Her eyes just changed from a blue green to green in the last 2 weeks. We are hoping they stay green. She weighs 2.9 lbs at 10 weeks old. So surprised by how tiny she is! I am guessing she won't be a very big girl. She is spunky and sweet. She likes to cuddle 😊. We met my husband's family half way between their house in Ohio and ours in Va. My sister in law is good friends with the breeder. We were in a hotel for a night then drove home. Lots of changes for a little girl but she is doing great. She's eating and started going potty outside yesterday. We have a potty pad inside just in case. No accidents so far. She loves to play and take lots of naps. She barely makes any noise. She did one single bark at the hotel when she saw herself in a mirror. Is it common for them not to bark at this age?

She is sooo cute. What a sweetheart you got!

Re your question re barking, I think Cassie didn't bark for weeks and weeks after we got her! One day, she did for some reason and I remember telling everyone, "she barked today". Havanese generally are not heavy barkers (i had two shelties many years ago and they herd their sheep by barking so I know too well breeds that bark a lot). Now Cassie does alarm barking (" someone is at our front door"), but doesn't bark at birds, squirrels, passing cars etc the way my shelties did.

Congratulations! She is beautiful! We got Jade at 14 weeks and she didn't bark for 2 weeks. She barks now, but not much.

Hugs, Jade, Harley, April and John. In our hearts, Kona

Sundae is a cutie! Don't forget to take lots of photos and post more; we love puppy pics!
Emmie didn't really bark for the first 5 months and then she found her voice, which she sometimes uses when she's playing with other dogs.

Adorable! Yes, it's more common than not that they don't bark much when they are very little, then find their voices when they are a bit older!

We had a sheltie (Chelcy) for 11 years. She kept all the birds and squirrels in line at our house. She had congestive heart failure and we lost her last year. We were so shocked the one time Sundae barked. She will whine for just a minute when she goes into her crate at night and growls some when playing but that's it.
