Oliver is 6 months old
He is such a love! I’ve never had such a cuddly, sweet dog (though my kids are always yelling, “Oliver WANTS you, Mommy!” to the point I feel like I have another baby). He’s growing out of biting (people, but their clothing is a work in progress). And potty training is going great. We haven’t had an accident in a long time.
A couple of things. We are doing his first groom on Tuesday and I’d like to keep him in a puppy cut, though I’ve met two Havanese owners so far that had their dog’s hair cut VERY short and I don’t want the groomer to do that. We got a referral for a mobile groomer from our neighbor that comes highly rated but they have big dogs. I’m attracted to the whole mobile part, lol. His hair is getting long but it’s not super curly. It’s much thicker than I realized though.
Which brings me to my second question. I bathed him the other day and was actually worried he’s too thin. He’s 8 lbs but honestly without the hair he looks so fragile. My husband had said he felt really thin but I didn’t notice till the bath. I increased his food, but he’s kind of meh about eating in general. I know 8 lbs isn’t small, but for his body I think it might be. He’s already 9.5 inches tall. The vet wasn’t worried at last check, though. I just want him to be healthy.
I’m attaching a bath pic so you can see what I mean.
Third question! Haha sorry. I know there are a lot of conversations about Hav weight, but I’m interested in what age your dog was when they reached their full height?
The other two pics are my son holding him at 11 weeks and today at 25 weeks. And him about 30 min after bath, blow dried 🙂
