New puppy Petunia

Hi, Back in March of last year our 14 year old German Shepherd dog passed.. She was wonderful and I miss her dearly. Just recently my wife and I were tossing around the idea of bringing a new puppy into our family. Ten days ago we bought a new little Havanese puppy, Petunia. I didn't know a whole lot about the breed, but the little research that I did do I figured that a Havanese pup would be a good breed for us. A drastic change from a German Shepherd, but we were looking for a smaller dog that would be easy to evacuate with and the fact that havanese don't shed was a major plus.

Anyway, This is my first post on this forum, but, I want you to know that the knowledge that I learned by visiting and reading the post here has been very helpful during the past week. This forum is a wealth of information. Thanks to all!

Petunia will be 10 weeks old next Saturday, she is adapting very well and has already caught on to the pee-pad thing. She even sleeps next to our bed in her crate with the crate door open, she sleeps, wakes, uses the pad and returns to her crate all by herself. Amazing.

Welcome! Petunia is a cutie! I'll have to let someone else tell you how to post pictures. It is still a matter of trial and error for me....

Welcome to the group. Petunia is not only absolutely adorable, but she's obviously brilliant as well. How lucky you are that she's doing the things she is already. I look forward to seeing more photos and hearing all about her.

For the photos, when you go to manage attachments and upload, just make sure the file sizes aren't too big. I usually resize everything to 600-700x whatever. If you have a pc, Irfanview or PhotoScape (thanks to Jerome) are wonderful for resizing and myriad other things.

Hi and sorry about the loss of your shepherd.
I have two German Shepherds (Maggie and Jonah) and a Havanese (Gracie). You will love the breed and this board!
