Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

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

Monday Mischief – An Act of Rebellion

on March 26, 2012

Don’t let her sweetness and cute face fool you – when push comes to shove, Daisy can rebel like a 16 year old teenager.

But I'm so innocent!

We’re getting ready to have our kitchen redone.

The wallpaper has been stripped.

We’re in the process of selecting a cabinet maker (an exhausting task). And then a granite fabricator.

Then DH will paint the walls (I have no clue what color to choose) and tile the backsplash (again, a big blank so far). This is a full-blown p-r-o-j-e-c-t that will take many months of Saturdays.

We got the first estimate a few weeks ago. The company rep came out to the house to measure and give his pitch. Which was laughable, by the way – he’s coming in over $7,000 ABOVE everyone else for lesser-grade materials. :<O

He was here for FOUR HOURS. Daisy absolutely refused to behave, so we had to put her in our bedroom and close the door. I don’t like doing that, but we had no choice. At least it’s a big room and we put all her toys, blankets, and water in there.

After some initial complaints, she finally realized her high-pitched “you-can’t-do-this-to-me” yapping and whining wasn’t getting her anywhere and she quieted down.

So the guy finally left around 5:00 – without, I might add, a signed contract. Nor did he get a call back. But his quote sure is making all the other cabinet makers sound great.Β And they’re offering us way more for the money.

Anyway, as soon as DH closed the front door behind Mr. Big Bucks, I opened the bedroom door and Daisy tore out, once again underscoring her nickname of The Blur. She sniffed for half an hour – every step the guy had taken, every place he’d stood. It really brought out her Inner Hound.

Everything seemed to go back to normal after that….until….

I walked through the kitchen, through the dining room, down the hall….back up the hall, back through the dining room….and then I saw IT….

Daisy had planted a Poop Bomb right smack in the middle of the doorway between the dining room and kitchen. (I’ll spare you the photo!) She set a trap for me, the little dickens. I think this was her retaliation for being closed in the bedroom for so long.

Oh, so you found my little surprise, did you? Maybe you'll think twice before removing me from all the action!

Next thing you know she’ll be shopping for her clothes at Hot Topic with all the other rebellious teens. πŸ˜‰

  1. What a funny story. I guess leaving a “poop bomb” behind makes her an official “little stinker”:) LOL

    LOL Well I think Daisy was just trying to let you know that she did not approve of Mr. Big Bucks either. πŸ™‚

    Oh dear…couldn’t she have found a less smelly way of revenge????

  4. Bassetmomma says:

    Oh my goodness! That is some smelly mischief! BOL! Good luck with your kitchen reno!

  5. Oh no, good thing you saw it before stepping in it. Sorry about the contractor guy, what a hassle.

  6. MARGIE says:

    They say to trust your dog maybe she knew and wanted to spare you , & the bomb was for hiim and his bid and you wouldnt let Daisy out in time to give it him LOL

  7. MARGIE says:

    Rainig big time …We are having a new roof put on today & tomorrow , the dogs are not liking it one bit maybe I’ll find a bomb yikes

    Oh Daisy, you do look so innocent! My parents’ dog Milo used to do that, when ever he was left home alone, he immediately planted a similar bomb right by the door. And this was done so quickly, for example when my parents went to take out the trash… I wonder where Milo stored all that stuff? πŸ˜€

    Daisy,
    That is one way to let your humans know they should consult with you on all important decisions. Don’t forget that we often have to train our humans to do the right thing.

    I love the way dogs learn to use poop as a retaliatory weapon. hehe

  11. lexy3587 says:

    hah, ridiculous! Gwynn, when we were teaching him to do his business outside, would occasionally get fed up with getting no quick dash to the door in response to his silent stare (yup, the dog just stared at us from the door of whatever room we were in, waiting for us to notice and let him out). He would then drag one of his toys into the middle of the floor in front of me, and ‘assume the position’ over top of it. Strange dog. It got a reaction, though!
    Hope your kitchen reno goes well – it’s tough, but I’m sure you’ll love it when it’s done πŸ™‚

  12. Kas says:

    DAISY!! Lol this post made my day .. maybe not yours at the time, but I can just picture that smart, rebellious little girl πŸ™‚

  13. Good work Daisy -that should show them to lock you up in a room all alone! *waggy tail*

  14. Hawk aka BrownDog says:

    Hi Y’all!

    I’ve never done that to my Humans….but it does give me pause for thought. πŸ˜‰

    Y’all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

    Haha Daisy,

    I think they really got the message buddy!! You’re great at this Mischief Making and I love your innocent face – I’m mean after all, it might NOT have been you? They didn’t actually SEE you do it, right?! Tee Hee

    Your pal Snoopy πŸ™‚

    • raisingdaisy says:

      Hey, you’re right Snoop! You know what – I think it was Mr. Big Bucks – he probably realized Mom and Dad weren’t interested and he left them a “parting gift”! πŸ˜‰ Think I can make that fly??

  16. barb19 says:

    Well, that’s telling you not to shut her out of the action again!

  17. The Hook says:

    Why do I have an image of Daisy racing along to “Born To Be Wild” in my head?

  18. bichonpawz says:

    That EXACT very SAME thing happened right here in this house TODAY!!! I hate it when mama does that to me…so I just showed her…that I didn’t like it…and I left her a present. She wasn’t happy. Not at all.

    xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

    • raisingdaisy says:

      Well I think it’s only fair that if our moms do something we don’t like to us, we should be able to do something they don’t like to them! LOL Maybe now they’ll get the message! πŸ˜‰

  19. ILoveDogs says:

    Hilariously naughty! I’m sure it wasn’t so funny when she did it, but you have to laugh now. πŸ˜€

    • raisingdaisy says:

      LOL That’s so true! These things are always funnier after the fact….although sometimes when these pups have such cute little expressions while they’re misbehaving, you just have to laugh through the mischief! πŸ™‚

    Don’t worry, DAISY! I completely support you (as usual!). If you want to be rebellious and continue protesting, I will completely support you!:) ❀
