Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

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

Daisy the Canine Teabag

on May 11, 2011

She’s tenacious. She’s stubborn. She plays hard. She’s….Daisy the Canine Teabag! LOL

Daisy loves playing tug-o-war with her blanket, aka her best buddy. I know, we broke a basic rule of training BIG time by allowing this, but it’s just so darned fun! I think it takes more discipline to stop a human from playing tug-o-war with a dog than the other way around. 😉

Those steel jaws of hers absolutely refuse to let go of the blanket when we play. She whips her head back and forth like a wild animal trying to shake its prey to death. She growls up a storm, and those growls range from high-pitched maniacal growling to deep, steady, long rumbling growls. And everything in between, including multi-toned growling LOL! What a nut.

But the funny thing is that when we pull the blanket upward, she still hangs on. Her front half just floats in midair as she growls away – anything to hang on! So I started doing a gentle up-and-down motion, thinking the light bouncing might encourage her to let go – nope. She just bounces up and down with the motion, looking like a canine teabag. 🙂

  1. LOL! Canine teabag is the PERFECT way to describe it!

    Gus loves him a game of tug-o-war, too, and does the same up and down motion. I will now forever think of him as a canine teabag!

    Jasmine also loves to play tug of war but she is so big she always wins!!!

  3. Haha,

    You’re lucky your Mum plays that with you, I think I’d be a bit too heavy to play that…….:)

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    Instead of “The Jaws of Life”, Daisy has “The Jaws of Death’!

    Daisy is SO cute and ferocious looking all at the same time. We need a video to hear her silly growls 🙂

      I really want to get some videos up with some of her silly antics and silly sounds – I haven’t taken any yet, I guess that’s my next project! 🙂

  7. There’s nothing wrong about a good game of tug-o-war with a well-behaved pup! Oscar loves to play tug-o-war with his favorite blanket, too! Unfortunately, his favorite zoo animal-print blanket has a few holes in it, so it’s now retired.

      I agree. Trainers say that tug-o-war creates an aggressive dog, but I haven’t seen that tendency in Daisy. We didn’t start playing it with her until her training was well-set, and it seems to work fine for us too. 🙂
