Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

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

Daisy and the Dreaded Pen

on March 1, 2011

I mentioned once before about how upset Daisy gets when she discovers something that’s out of place or doesn’t belong, but last night she took that to new heights.

As I was working on my computer, a pen fell off the desk and clattered onto the wood floor. This didn’t sit well with Daisy at all.

She jumped up and away (in one motion) as if a bomb had gone off next to her. Then she began her accusatory “dance” – the “You Don’t Belong Here Go Away” dance.

It starts with her backing away from the offending item with her ears in that unique up-and-forward position that’s reserved for questioning things; then she does her little Around-And-Back tap dance that puts her at a safe distance from The Offender. This is coupled with “bffff-ing”, grumbling and yapping – complaints aimed directly at The Offender.

Eventually she’ll try to sneak an overly cautious sniff at the thing, but it never passes her acceptance test and ultimately she must rescue her cherished belongings and move them to safety with her while keeping one eye on That Which Does Not Belong. Here’s a VERY abbreviated idea of what goes on:

The Offender Strikes

Assessing the Offender from a safe distance

I must rescue my precious blanket and move it to safety!


With all her destructive tendencies, Daisy will never attempt to touch That Which Does Not Belong.

No matter how many times this happens, we just can’t stop laughing!

  2. OMG…how funny! You must capture this on video some day!

    So glad to see she moved her blanket to safety..that pen does look awfully dangerous. 😉

      I really do have to remember to start recording antics like this. Trouble is I never know when they’re going to happen and the camcorder is tucked away!

    Daisy is SUCH a character…I just love her…she reminds me of the minature French Poodle I used to have…such personality.

    Daisy is oozing with character – she acts the same way as our Poppy does when she sees Something Which Doesn’t Belong! She will dance round the object, never taking her eyes off it, grumbling under her breath all the while – until we remove it and then she is happy! We really should get our dogs together!
