Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

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

Daisy’s Christmas Day Adventure

on January 12, 2012

Our Christmas trip to Florida was Daisy’s first experience living in a home other than her own. She spent two solid days doing nothing but sniffing around the edges of every room like a bloodhound on the scent of its target.

She explored every piece of furniture, every pebble on the chattahoochee patio, and every fiber of carpet in every room. Β What a busy girl! She usually naps during the day, but not one nap was had. By night time, she was ready for bed!

On Christmas day, Daisy “helped” us open our presents; in fact, she became one:

Now I'm as dressed up as all the presents!

After we all opened our gifts, our traditional “wrapping fight” spontaneously ignited – we ball up the wrapping paper and tissue paper and throw it at each other. It probably sounds silly, but it’s a multi-generational high-speed game of paper dodge ball while we’re all still sitting around the Christmas tree. πŸ™‚

This year, though, it was Daisy who was bombarded with paper balls, and she LOVED it! She chased all the paper balls, jumped up to catch them, and loved being the center of attention. The aftermath was one pooped pup who fell fast asleep amid the wreckage:

That was one wild game! I can't wait 'til next Christmas!

  3. Hey Daisy,

    You’re the best gift of them all buddy!!

    Of course you had to give your new house the ‘sniff-over’ before you could relax – you never know what you might find – for example, when I went to my friend Gracie’s house I found a CAT hiding under the kitchen table – who would have guessed!! My nose sniffed it out…… nope, it didn’t end too well, I got over excited and sprinted after it, then it went into the bedroom to hide from me and it’s Mum shut the door!! Doh!!

    Glad you had fun with all that paper,

    Your pal Snoopy πŸ™‚

      Well I’m kinda glad I didn’t find any cats hiding there – the ones who saunter across the back yard are BIG and don’t look too friendly. (They glare at me through the window when I bark at them! The nerve!) And they stalk birds so my mom has to chase them away so the birds don’t get hurt!

      That paper game was so much fun! I hope we always do that! πŸ˜€

    Daisy had to check out everything to make sure it was safe for you guys – so she did it the only way she knows how – sniffing! Lots of new and exciting smells for her, no time for napping!
    It looks like she enjoyed the traditional throwing of the Christmas wrapping paper, she probably thought it was just for her! Love the photo of her amongst the debris!

    • raisingdaisy says:

      I never thought of it that way, Barb! We were so surprised that Daisy didn’t try to pull her usual Destructo-Pup routine with the paper…I guess she saves that for her toys. And that’s just fine with me! πŸ™‚

    OH Daisy. Plum tuckered out.

    Pretty good game then!

    I would have barked up a storm with all those balls flyin’!

  11. That’s awesome. Love the sacked out picture at the end.

    Bombarded with Christmas wrapping balls? SOUNDS LIKE GREAT FUN!!! I’m going to ask my humans to do something similar at our house this year. Thanks for the idea!:)

    PeeS: Daisy looks like the best Christmas present one could find under a tree.

    It’s fun playing in and rattling all that paper. We think that green bow looks quite nice atop your cute little head sweet Daisy. Hugs and nose kisses

    Our dog, Chelsea does the same thing!
