Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

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

Another Versatile Blogger Award! Woohoo!

on August 16, 2011

Many thanks to our blogging budding 2 Brown Dawgs for awarding us a second Versatile Blogger Award! We love reading their blog about the training and trials of two beautiful brown Chessies, Thunder and Storm, Β as they learn the skills of true retrievers – the discipline is awe-inspiring and their obvious love of retrieving is heartwarming.

Okay, so….another 7 facts about ourselves. Hmmmm….

1. I love to write – good thing too, since I’m a freelance writer by profession! LOL If I go more than one day without writing, I definitely feel a void.

2. Daisy likes to sit in my lap when I’m working on the computer. Inevitably, sometime during each day, she tiptoes over to me and oh-so-gently stands so her front paws are on the edge of my chair. When I look at her, she fake-stretches, gives me that irresistible Daisy face with the sideways look, big smiling eyes, and wagging tail, and she inevitably charms me into letting her onto my lap. She sits there like royalty and eventually curls up. How can I resist that sweet Havachon face and soft Havachon presence all cuddled up on me? Since I can’t reach the computer once she’s on me, I’m really thankful to have voice recognition software!

3. We love going to local fairs and festivals, especially in the fall. We go to every single one we can squeeze in, even if they’re two hours away and especially if they’re in areas we’ve yet to explore.

4. Daisy gets bathed once a week. On the sixth day, she starts smelling like a Cheese Doodle!

5. DD and I love Gordon Ramsay’s shows. Hell’s Kitchen, Master Chef, Kitchen Nightmares – in that order, we’re suckers for anything Ramsay. On a different level, we also love Lidia Bastianich’s cooking shows on PBS – she makes our mouths water!

6. My two dream trips would be to England and Italy. I don’t go much for tourist traps (though I would like to see some historical spots), but to spend several weeks exploring the English countryside, mingling with the “real folks” and then to spend about a month in Tuscany would be a dream come true.

7. I love Starbucks mochas. I don’t have them all that often, but I really appreciate them when I do have one. I also love the ambiance of certain cafes with that certain indefinable “something” that stirs my creativity, as well as small towns and down-to-earth people. Especially if those places are dog-friendly and we can bring Daisy. πŸ˜‰

I think I nominated just about all of my blogging buddies who post comments here ( I LOVE reading all your comments!), but they’re all worth mentioning again, and their blogs are definitely worth visiting:

    Congrats on a well-deserved award, young lady! Great post – again!

  2. Congrats Daisy on getting the award again, you’re pawsome!

    Weekly baths Daisy? I feel your pain, I have to have the weekly bath too, but I know lots of Doggies who don’t, it’s so not fair!

    Have a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy πŸ™‚

      I keep telling my family that people LOVE Cheese Doodles, but it doesn’t stop them from making that funny face when they get near me – next thing I know, they’re bathing me!

    Congrats on the award…and so deserving. My nominees were all so quick to get their posts up. I can’t wait to check out your nominees.

    My kitty likes to try to crawl up on my lap while I am trying to type just like Daisy. Maybe they are related? πŸ˜‰

  7. Blogging awards are so addictive, one is never enough! Congratulations and thank you for the mention πŸ˜€

    P.s. My husband has, for the longest time, tried to convince me to use the voice recognition software that is available in our computer. I did make an attempt or two, but couldn’t get the hang of it. That was before Miss Maple… Now, I can definitely see the benefits of giving it a second try!

  8. Congratualtions and thank you for telling people to stop on by to visit. I give yuki and rocket a bath once a week too, makes them shiny and fluffy and smelling good!

  9. Thanks for the mention! Always fun to read more about bloggers!
