Hello, Havanese Lovers!
I’m sorry that I haven’t blogged in a while, but keeping up with three little princesses is HARD work! I’ve never been so tired in my entire life. Who knew? Even when I do get to sleep, I’m dreaming about my sweet little girls leaving me and going off to their new homes. They’re only three weeks old right now, but two of them have already been adopted by excellent families. I know that they’re going to be very loved and spoiled at their new homes. I have no doubt about that, because dogs can sense these things, you know? It’s just hard to watch them grow up. I don’t have much time with them before they will leave me to go be somebody else’s Happy Tail Havanese. Soon, they’ll be bringing their new families lots of love, laughs, cuddles, kisses, and of course they’ll assume the ever important post of perpetual lap warmers. Their new families are extremely blessed and so are my sweet little princesses.
Okay, enough of the mushy stuff. Let me tell you about my little puppies. Week three is a time of rapid physical and sensory development. They seem very advanced if I do say so myself. All three of them have their little blue eyes open; they haven’t changed to their beautiful, dark brown, adult color yet. All three of them can also hear now that they’ve opened their ears. Since my girls are becoming aware of their environment, we are busy exposing them to the sounds of everyday life so that nothing feels scary when they’re all grown up. Nana and Mom are very excited about the puppies’ senses being “turned on” during this stage because this neurologically busy period is an important window of opportunity for them to bond with my fur babies. I know that they look forward to their daily bonding sessions.
The puppies are watching Wookie really carefully right now, and they’re learning from everything she does. Even though they are still heavily nursing, they may start to lap at water this week. Towards the end of this week, they may even start to taste mush. It’s fun to be just like mommy. Don’t they say that imitation is the best form of flattery?
Not to brag, but my intelligent Havanese puppies have advanced past crawling and are walking pretty well now; though they do take the occasional little stumble. They’re so cute when they wobble! Nana even put the puppies in the playpen for the first time with toys. They aren’t ready to really play yet, but it’s still pretty cute! Take a peek at the video below. In a few weeks they’ll be running all over that playpen learning to play with each other, learning to bark, tossing toys, and exploring various textures, and sounds. Don’t worry, I’ll keep you posted with more videos as they grow.
Can you tell I’m a proud PawPaw?
I’ll see you next time!
