New here, bringing puppy home in 2 weeks!

Hello! We are beyond excited to be adding to our family with a Havanese puppy in the next two weeks. This forum has so much information I'm looking forward to learning about all the little things that will be coming up! Our family is me and the hubster, two kids ages 6 & 3, our 2 year old golden mix, 2 rescued cats and I know our new baby will fit right in Last week I said goodbye to my loyal companion, my 13 year old Sheltie named Carter. Age was not kind to him, I terribly miss having that Velcro-companion dog that he was. Anyway, I decided on a a Havanese several months ago but knowing we are getting our boy the last days are taking forever!!!

Faith

Hello! I am also getting a havanese puppy very soon. We pick up our girl on Friday. She'll be 8 weeks old. Unlike you this will be our first family dog. Growing up my family always had a dog, usually 2 or 3 at a time. My husband also had a dog growing up.
My family consists of myself and husband, two girls 6 and 11, 1 cat (16 yrs!) and 2 guinea pigs.
It looks like you and I will be going through the puppy stages together. I'm thinking you are going the fare better then me!

I'm not so sure about that, LOL! My sheltie was the most amazing dog, he was a dream to train and the worlds easiest puppy. I totally didn't realize how easy I had it... Until we rescued Payton, our golden mix!! We got him at 14 ish weeks, he didn't take too long to housebreak but the CHEWING! Oh my.

Thank you!! I'm obviously using the app to post, but when I try to upload a picture I don't see that it actually worked? Is it because I haven't posted enough, or I I doing something wrong?

I'm new too and our little boy comes home in 3.5 weeks! We're getting very excited! I'm glad there are a few other people that will be going through raising puppies around the same age!
