The notion of feeding a dog twice a day, in my opinion, should be reserved for adult dogs. Twice-a-day feeding often serves adult dogs well.
But a 10-week-old puppy? By all means, I suggest, feed three meals a day, and give a bedtime (or nearly) light snack. Even if your pup is big for a Havanese, that's still a small dog, and the metabolism suggests feeding more than twice a day!
I used to feed my adult dogs three times a day, with a light snack close to bedtime, and that suited them well, till one showed up with diabetes, which tends to require two meals a day and essentially nothing else - that's to match insulin injections twice a day.
I agree with those who are saying, give lunch, and let the pup tell you if/when lunch is no longer wanted!
