Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

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

We’re So Honored! :)

on June 21, 2011

Many thanks to our blogging buddies Oscar and PaulineΒ and Green Dog Love Blog for nominating us for the Versatile Blogger Award! You made our day! πŸ˜€

Thank you so much for honoring my silliness! πŸ™‚

So, to continue the tradition, we’ve linked back to both (along with our sincere thanks!), and now we’ll share seven facts about us and pass on the award.

Fact 1. Daisy’s new favorite “toy” is the little round cap that covers the bolt at the base of the toilet. (Might as well start off with the most embarrassing one, right?) She’s chosen one in particular as her target, and now it’s got teeth marks all over it. ::sigh:: Gotta remember to keep that bathroom door closed at all times!

Fact 2. We love British television. Yes, we’re Yanks, but we’re really captivated by a number of Britcoms and the way the Brits bring 19th century books to life (I love 19th century books). Sometimes we plan entire evenings around a good British show. ::blushing:: We find it hysterical that so many Britcom characters talk about their favorite TV shows being American!

Fact 3. Daisy tries to catch butterflies and bugs through the glass door. She still doesn’t understand that if there’s thick glass between her and the flying creature outside, she’s not going to win.

Fact 4. We’re foodies. Big time. We love trying new foods, new restaurants, and new recipes. In fact, I was a restaurant reviewer for a number of years.

Fact 5. One of Daisy’s nicknames – at times – is “Lunatic”. But it’s said with love and always in the midst of a big laugh. πŸ™‚

Fact 6. We love love love books. All kinds of books. Contemporary, 19th-18th-17th century and beyond (DD is big into Shakespeare’s original language), fiction, nonfiction, and memoir. We cross all genres. You name it, we read it. And no matter how boring a book may be, once I start it, I have to finish it. Inevitably I’ll pick up some gems in even the dullest literature.

Fact 7. Daisy hates putting her harness on. She gets all excited when she sees it or the leash, but we have to chase her around before getting her to stay still long enough to get the darned thing on her. It’s a struggle, believe me. Once it’s on, she’s all happy and excited again!

Okay, so if you’re still with me after all that, here are our nominations for Versatile Blogger Award (in no particular order):

Granny1947 – a lovely woman who looks at life with a great sense of humor
Passionate About Pets – real quality blogging, great stories, beautiful photos
Happy Bark Days – I know she’s already received several nominations, but Miss Maple is so darned adorable and the blog is just so well written, I had to add another
Live, Bark, Love – great blogging about great dogs with great photos
According to Gus – fabulous dog blog; it offers too much to even list here!
Snoopy’s Dogblog – one of the sweetest dogs you’ll ever meet; he melts our hearts
The Hook – not a dog blog, but lots of really funny behind-the-scenes hotel stories
Roxy the Traveling Dog – a new blogging buddy with a really interesting and versatile blog
Chancy the Gardener – lots of personality in fun blog posts!

Living the Wheat Free Life – this is a fabulous, upbeat blog that’s helpful for anyone who has wheat or gluten allergies or has celiac disease – and very helpful for the people who cook for them.

I hope I didn’t miss anyone! Β I guess I’m not supposed to re-nominate Oscah Baby or Green Dog Love Blog, but they’re certainly among our favorites too! Thanks again! πŸ™‚

    congrats πŸ™‚
    hilarious that she’s decided she loves a piece of the toilet instead of a regular toy πŸ˜› Gwynn likes sponges… very frustrating, and I have no idea how he manages to get ahold fo them so frequently.

  2. OMG, I love British televisionβ€”especially the British versions of Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares and The F Word. A couple of other programs come to mind, but their titles escape me! There was a show where two eccentric women go around cleaning other people’s houses… And Doctor Who. I love Doctor Who!

    • raisingdaisy says:

      We love both versions of Kitchen Nightmares, as well as Ramsay’s other shows: Master Chef and Hell’s Kitchen. We haven’t seen the show with two eccentric women, but it sounds like it would be a blast! Right now we’re into The Old Guys, Doc Martin, and After You’ve Gone. A few of our all-time favorites are As Time Goes By, Last of the Summer Wine, Keeping Up Appearances, and Vicar of Dibley. Nice to meet another British TV fan! πŸ™‚

      • The cleaning show is called How Clean Is Your House! It just popped into mind. πŸ™‚

        I love, love, LOVE Ramsay. He’s such a memorable TV personality, not to mention his food looks so yummy!

  3. Congrats on your Versatile Blogger Award—it is a well-deserved award, especially since I’ve not only been able to learn about Daisy but also birds and flowers! Thank you for passing the award paw-ward to Miss Maple. We’re really speechless by the honour! Fact 3 reminded me of a time when we were walking Maple along a side of building whose facade was constructed of glass… she walked right into it 😐 By the way, interesting to find out that you were a restaurant reviewer. That would be a dream job for any foodie πŸ˜€

    • raisingdaisy says:

      Thanks so much! Your blog certainly deserves all the accolades it’s been getting too. That’s a funny story about Maple walking into the glass, but the poor little thing!! Yes, getting paid to review restaurants definitely WAS a dream job!!

  4. Carly says:

    Happy to learn more about you all! I love that you’re foodies – outside of dogs, food might be my other great love, haha!

    • raisingdaisy says:

      And isn’t it wonderful that discovering new foods never gets old? Especially since the introduction of fusion so long ago, there’s no end to the incredible combinations and new creations! πŸ™‚

    Congrats on the Versatile Blogger Award RD – you deserve it, your blog is always fun to come to and always guarantees a laugh or a smile with Daisy’s antics – I love that crazy pooch of yours!
    I’m a Brit living in Australia, and I love British TV (not that I’m not biased or anything lol!) They do period mini-series so well, I love all the costumes, and of course, they have a great sense of humour!

    • raisingdaisy says:

      Thank you so much Barb, what a lovely thing to say! I’m always thrilled to see when you’ve put a new post up and enjoy every single one, which is why I nominated you for the award as well! πŸ™‚

  6. Shucks Daisy,

    Thanks for the award!!

    It was great to read all your facts!! Mum likes British TV too, have you ever seen the British version of The Office – one of Mum’s favourites! πŸ™‚
