Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

The Good, Crazy, & Adorable Life of One Havachon Puppy

Never Mix Business with Pleasure

on August 25, 2010

No time for photos now, c'mon, let's play!

Hey, playtime is serious business! At least it is for our little Daisy, whose love of affection goes right out the window when she’s in play mode. In fact, she’ll actually turn her back on us if we so much as hint at petting her when she’s seriously munching on her Nylabone or sharing some one-on-one time with her chewy platypus.

After chasing platypus around for a while, Daisy will suddenly plop down mid-stride and just start chewing on this toy – her favorite ever since she destroyed her furry, squeaky giraffe – inasmuch as saying, “I’m done playing with you, now it’s just me and Platypus!”. Daisy loves to growl while wrestling with platypus – funny, little short growls that range from deep baritone (as deep as a 6 pound dog can get her growler to go)  up to high-pitched falsettos, sometimes in the same breath. It must be so frustrating not to be taken seriously when she’s playing the tough-guy role, because we just laugh and laugh when she does that! If she was human, I’m sure she’d be rolling her eyes at us!

If we try to pet her, she’ll growl all the louder (play growling, not warning growls) and romp around, holding platypus tightly between her sharp little teeth, until she finds a new spot to lie on. Then we get “the eyes” – just “the eyes” – watching us and making sure we’re not going to try that again.

Ah yes, there’s nothing like a good “tough guy” play session for a sweet little curly-haired girly-puppy! 🙂

    They bring SO much pleasure into our lives.
    Having said that…if I don’t take Jasmine to the beach this evening she might just eat me for supper!
