puppy calmer?!

So my husband and I stayed in Seattle a couple of days ago and when we came back yesterday our Rex seems to be calmer? We had my cousin over to watch my girls and Rex overnight and now that we're back he's calmer and wanting to cuddle even more Wondering if this is because he's 11 weeks now or perhaps he's realizing he loves us Whatever the case is I'm loving it!

What age did your Havs start "calming" down and wanting to cuddle more? I'm sure this will only last a couple of days until he realizes we're not leaving again but I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts!

KJodi was close to a year before he really started to settle down, and he was two before he was what I would consider "grown up"!

Agreed, Karen, two is grown up. Much fun in-between though.

I figured 1 would be calmer... have to admit although I love our puppy I can't wait to just have a buddy that's not so crazy

Diego only started to slowly "calm down" and "cuddle up" after this past Halloween. He'll be a year in two and a half weeks.

Dexter started calming down after a year, but Jack is just starting to calm down and he is two.

I think it depends on your definition of 'calming down' - some dogs calm down as they grow much quicker than others, while other dogs keep their high-energy puppy temperament into doggie old age . Also, you seem to be also talking about bonding and being affectionate, which is different than being calm .

Your puppy is only 11 weeks, he will change a LOT in many ways (temperament, affection, routine, calmness!) in the next few weeks, let alone the next few years! And, the bonding will only continue to improve. Just keep being affectionate to him while letting him have his own space, and I think that all things in general will only continue to improve

He is beautiful, by the way - did I tell you before that he reminds me of Cey as a pup? If not, well, he looks a lot like Cey did as a pup!

Heatherk I didn't even think about bonding/being affectionate. I think you are absolutely right perhaps he is starting to like us

I am looking forward to how much he is going to change! You did say he looks like Cey as a pup so it made me stalk to find a picture of Cey! Is that who is on your avatar? Do you have any recent pictures? I am curious to see just how my Rex is going to change color wise

Haha, here is a link to a post I just made with some pics of Ceylon on his 1st birthday just 1 week ago (with a pic of him as a very young pup) . http://www.havaneseforum.com/showthread.php?t=15835 He has actually retained a LOT of color for a gold sable so far... most sables turn out almost completely blonde or white with dark tipping by this age I understand. Is Rex a sable, or what is he classified as? (If Rex is a brindle he will keep most of his coloring...)

Lol, you remind me of me in so many ways PM me, I actually saw that you just spent a few days in Seattle (where I live) and I was like, shoot, we could maybe have met up...

Rosie will be three in March and has just this fall decided to be in the same chair with us. But it is her daddy's lap most of the time. She has become his buddy and follows him all over and waits by the window when he is traveling. I have to shut the upstairs bedroom door to keep her with me. Otherwise she will sit in the window all night watching for him to come home.
