    My New Buddy

    Hi, I thought I'd share a pic of my new buddy...his name is Eddie. I'm in love! My hubby said he's the smartest dog he's ever owned! We've had him a month now. He's 10 weeks old and learning to sit and stay. We're also working with him letting us and others mess with his face and feet and brush him since he will require extra grooming. The 2 cats absolutely hate him. Lucy, the indoor cat hisses and growls at him whenever he gets anywhere near her but loves to eat his dry food. Princess the Rag Doll kitty refused to come into the house for a week and I had to finally trick her in with moist food at the doorway then lock her in for 4 days. She's still in a snit but will come in about once a day now and give me some loves.

    How wonderful! The cats will soon get used to him after they realize he's not really interested in them. He's a handsome fellow!

    No he's a Havanese. They look a lot like a Shih Tzu but their nose is long instead of smushed.

    Yes Sewnoma, he already follows me from room to room and just lays down to sleep when I'm in my quilting studio...either that or brings me a toy to play with him.

    He is ADORABLE. I love how the cats react. sooo funny. I have a Russian blue kitty, Zoey, 4 yrs old.she
    won't let us bring anything on 4 legs into the house. she put that foot down, and we abide by her rules.
    or else there will be #&// to pay.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    He is wonderful.

    I have an Eddie, too! She is a little mutt from the pound and I love her to pieces. You are very smart to handle Eddies feet, ears and brushing and handling toenails. I trained my Eddie to be okay with nail clipping by letting her hear the sound of the clippers and holding them near her toes. If she stayed still I would give her a tiny treat. She is also trained to sit at the door when she comes inside so I can wipe her muddy feet and belly.

    Have a great time with your Eddie and be sure to give some extra lovin' to those cats!
    peace

    My son has a German Short Hair and he started out doing what you are doing. Even opens her mouth and fiddles around in there. Brushes her teeth. She loves it. I love your dog. He is gonna be big, because his feet are already big. Don't you just love them. He is so pretty.

    I have a Shih Tzu the same colors. His nose isn't real smushed. He is the happiest when I drop a piece of fabric, he knows he shouldn't have it. He also likes to get ahold of batting. I usually catch him right after he gets it. It is hard to see in his mouth. He is good for the Groomer and the Vet. Mine is Dusty, looks like a dust mop before he gets groomed. Dusty is 9-1/2 months old. He doesn't learn as fast as my previous toy Poodles did, but when he finally "gets it" he doesn't forget.

    Your Eddie is very cute. I think he will be a wonderful companion.

    What a little sweetie....a bonus him being clever (my little dog is much loved and follows me everywhere, but has dirt for brains). Good to get him used to handling/clipping. Make sure you get him used to car travel too.

    I think Havanese dogs are wonderful. We have a half-Havanese, half-Papillon that is the cutest, smartest thing ever. I remember when I first saw her mother, who was Havanese, I thought she was an okay looking dog, but once I petted her and held her I felt like she exuded happiness. I've never had that feeling from a dog before. Yep, Havanese are great!

    I love him! Can't refuse a puppy! Came out of Walmart one cold January morning and two teenagers were standing there with a Chihuahua puppy - of course I had to stop and ask if they were selling him. They told me his mom was 6 pounds and father 3 pounds so he would be small. He's now 2 yrs old and weighs 15 pounds! We love him just the same!

    Hello Eddie, and Welcome to our world. Be sure to make him a little pad for the floor under your sewing machine. He will be a great co-pilot

    Well how cute is he. My grandkids got a new puppy and call her Tia Cupcake, I call her Homer and the kids get so mad at me for calling her that!! Guess I had better stop calling her that or she will get confused on what her name is!!

    Eddie is so precious! I am sure he will win the cats over given some time.

    What a cutiepie! You are so wise to begin his training now while he is so little. Our puppy promptly trained my DH and it has not changed after all these 14 years. LOL

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.
