Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

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

Daisy and Rupert – A Love Story ;)

on August 23, 2011

DD has been clearing out her room – drawers, closet, you name it, she’s attacking it. ::enthusiastic applause from Mom!::

So we were putting together a bunch of donation bags with clothing she no longer wants when DD came across a few old stuffed animals tucked deep into a storage bin. When she rediscovered Rupert, a teddy bear about the size of Daisy, she decided to see how Daisy would react to him.

Now, we all know that soft toys bring out the Destructo-Pup in Daisy, but shockingly, she hasn’t been attacking Rupert! She drags him around with her, she gnaws somewhat gently on his ears, nose, and arms, but she hasn’t bothered at all with the ribbon around his neck nor has she torn him up at all!

In fact, she’s quite protective of him and gets very anxious if we pick him up.

She cuddles with him

::sigh:: My Rupert.... 🙂

And snuggles with him

And gives him love nibbles

but never does any real damage to him. That’s very unlike our Destructo-Pup!

I think Daisy’s in love! LOL Maybe because Rupert is about her size, she has a little more respect for him? Maybe the breeds within her only rip up smaller-sized toys? I don’t know, but whatever it is, we’re loving her attachment to this little guy!

  1. Ah, I love this! Tobi is the same way with her little bear she’s has since 2006. Any other new toy is de-stuffed immediately, but the bear remains. It will fun to see how things go with Daisy and Rupert down the road 🙂 Let’s just hope he stays on her good side!

      LOL Isn’t it funny how our pets seem to adopt pets of their own? I think it’s so sweet!

      • Oh my goodness, that might just be it! Perhaps Daisy thinks it’s about time that she has a huggable, kissable, friendly ‘pet’ to call her own. And it’s a good thing, too, because it means that Rupert gets to extend his stay in your home.

    Awww, love the photos of Daisy with Rupert! It could be because he is the same size as her, who knows. She has claimed him for herself, that’s for sure. So cute.

  4. Hi Daisy,

    So happy you get it about the soft toys now, they’re way more fun when they’re still in one piece! I’ve still got every one of mine, which Dad’s not too happy about and says I have too many, but Mum helps me protect them! 🙂

    The big teddy’s look so cool, I wish I had one that big! You’re a lucky pup! 🙂

    Have fun,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

      You’re so lucky to have all those wonderful toys, Snoopy – something just comes over me when I get a small soft toy and the next thing I know, it’s in shreds! I’ll try to keep control over myself with Rupert, though. 😉

    LOL that is cute. I was thinking that Daisy was being gentle due to the size of this toy…and one day she may just show it who is boss! 🙂

    That's so adorable! Reminds me of the time I let Oscar have my teddy bear. Let's just say, the bear brought out the bad boy in him. LOL! 😉
