Here is Oscar

Hi
I am the owner of an 13 week old Havanese. He has been with me for 4 weeks now, it has not been easy but a lot of fun. I love this little boy a lot, but there are times when I ask myself if I have lost my mind the day I got a puppy. I guess I do suffer from Puppy blues. He has so much energy! Oscar is so smart though. He knows how to sit, stay, leave it and even plays fetch with me. He has managed to get out of the kitchen (where I keep him with 2 Pet gates when I am not home) numerous times. Maybe I should have named him Houdini.
This forum has helped me so much. From deciding on the breed to getting very important information on the care of my puppy. I just wanted to say thank you to everybody who has taking the time to post any information. You are life savers.
I hope the pictures come up with this post.
Silvia

HI Sylia and to the forum!!

Having a puppy is alot like having and infant.../toddler, they can be a bit of work, but you will be glad you did once you get him more trained and he's on a good schedule, Havs seem to like routine and schedule and the sooner you can get him trained and have his schedule down, it is much easier.

He is so stinking cute I can't imagine him getting into ANY trouble though, look at that face...

Enjoy every minute of it, and get lots of pictures!

Welcome and congratulations... He is super cute. I had the "puppy blues" too. I also asked myself why I got a puppy and even cried a few times. But now, I am completely in love with my Havanese. They are amazing. Enjoy him.

Welcome! Congratulations! Yup - am a black and tan fan myself!! And have also been there where I wondered if I had lost my mind. In fact, pretty much had a melt down around the 2-3 week point, wondering if we hadn't made a HUGE mistake. It lasted all of three hours, then had a huge talk with myself that I had made this decision with a lot of thought, it wasn't a spur-of-the moment decision, and decided it was going to work. No one is going to pry him out of my grasp now! They mellow out and training makes a huge difference.

Oscar is a cutie and your photos are wonderful! It does get easier and soon you won't be able to imagine your life without him!!

Thank you for your kind words. I can tell that you know how I feel. I too had given this a lot of thoughts, and it took me over one year to make a decision to get a dog. I am happy with little Oscar, but I have my moments where I get overwhelmed with the puppy craziness. I raised 2 boys so this should be easy, you think! I know in my heart that it will get better with time. In the meantime, I will take it one day at a time.

Thank you for your support
Silvia
