4 Weeks Old


The puppies are playing so well with each other! Fun to watch them pull and tug on each other. Here are some updated photos.

This is Mary, as in Mary Wilson of The Supremes. She weighs 1 # 12 oz.

This is Mary again. Love the colors on all these pups!



Florence weighs 1# 9 oz.

This is Marvin. Right now he’s the smallest, at 1# 6 oz., but this will likely change.

Marvin as in Marvin Gaye…another Motown superstar!

And Diana (as in Ross) who weighs 1#, 13 oz…just beating out her sister by 1 ounce.


Some Books I Like…

I have had several families appreciate input on what books to read before your new family member arrives.

Here are some I like:

The Havanese was written by a veterinarian who used to breed and show Havanese dogs


How to Speak Dog is a fun but informative book about communicating with your canine family member. Modern Dog Parenting has a wonderful approach to training your new puppy.

Dr. Pitcairn has included dozens of recipes for hand made dog food should you be so inclined. But this is a great reference book for many health issues that can come up. And, he has a holistic approach which I like.

Joyous Havanese was written by Kitty Braund and is very helpful. I got my first Havanese, Phoebe, from Kitty. It was her last litter as she was approaching 90 years young. Phoebe is my heart dog…just turned 10!
