Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

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

Monday Mischief: Daisy’s Gentle Reminder

It’s not really mischief I guess, but Daisy does have a new strategy. Whenever we eat something while sitting on the couch, Daisy has taken to “reminding” us that she’s right there and hoping for a hand-out. She puts her paw gently on us as if to say “Don’t forget to give me some!” It melts our hearts instantly.

I’m right here Mommy! And those sure do look yummy!

Maybe if I put my paw on your foot and give you my big puppy eyes, you’ll give me a lick of that nectarine…..

How can you resist me? Don’t you know that resistance is futile??

Monday Mischief: Aren’t I Fancy!

Lookee what I got to do this weekend -I’m wearing one of Mommy’s bracelets! I feel SO pretty! 😀

What’s this now? What’s this thing on my leg? Hmmm…it’s kinda pretty! I think I like it!

What do you think, Mommy? Do you like it too?

Oh yes, this is me alright. I feel like Cleopatra!

It’s true that Mommy put the bracelet on me when she saw that I liked it a lot, that wasn’t the mischievous part. But the next thing I did was – I liked it so much, I pretended to fall asleep so I could wear it longer! Heehee!

I’m getting ready to nap, Mommy. You wouldn’t want to disturb me by taking your bracelet back now!

Monday Mischief: I Got ‘Em Back!

Daisy insists on taking the blog over again today. There’s no fighting a strong-willed Havachon!

Hi blog buddies! Daisy here.

So many of you had such wonderful suggestions on how I could get back at my family for taking me to the groomers. FleaByte  said that when my family’s not looking, I should chew up their stuff, and Long Life Cats and Dogs, Doggy’s Style,  The Misadventures of Misaki all agreed that I should  find some poo outside and roll in it – great idea!  One of the funniest suggestions came from Scrappy, who said I should take a picture of my family early in the morning, before they have a chance to get ready – that’d fix them GOOD! LOL!

But I got them back with an even more sinister plan….I caught kennel cough at the groomer’s place. Yep, I was honking and coughing and whooping all night last Monday, and since I sleep in the hall between their bedrooms (so no one can get up without me knowing about it!), I kept them up for hours on end. ::evil laugh::

I sacrificed a lot for this revenge. I didn’t feel too good; I could eat but I was a little sluggish and Mom said I had those big doe-eyes like I didn’t know what was happening to me. Oh, I knew alright! ::sinister chuckle::

But it kinda backfired on me a little, because Mom took me to the vet the very next day, and I got a shot. Poo. But on the positive side, I get to take pills twice every day for 10 days, and Mom gives them to me in peanut butter – woohoo!!

I just kinda stared off into space with glassy eyes for the first few days after I started taking my pill….I felt so doped-up, I could swear my family was moving in slow motion. It was a pretty wild ride! 😉

Now, you might ask how a pup who’s up to date on all her vaccines managed to get kennel cough. Well, Mom asked the vet the same thing. He said that the Bordatella vaccine protects against 3-4 of the most common strains of kennel cough, but I was tricky enough to catch one of the 30+ less common strains!

I’m feeling much better now; in fact, I stopped coughing as soon as my wonderful vet gave me that shot and Mom gave me my first cough pill when we got home. But I’m not allowed to run or play chasing games for 10 days…..another little glitch in my plan. Oh well, sometimes you have to make sacrifices! 😉

Monday Mischief: My Family Reversed Mischief On Me!

Daisy here. And none too happy either.

My family did a reverse-mischief on me last week, and I didn’t like it one bit.

You know what they did? They made me look like a girly-girl.

Yes, that’s right. They actually made tough, trap-setting Destructo-Pup look like a sweet girly pup.

They took me to a professional groomer.  :<O grrrrr

Stop laughing, it’s not funny. My family usually grooms me themselves every week, but now that Dad’s right arm is still in a brace, he can’t hold me still while Mom cuts my nails, shaves my behind (::shudder::), and clips my face and paw hair.

I thought I was going to be livin’ easy with no grooming for the weeks that Dad would be in the brace, but instead they took me to the groomer.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I like the groomer and her boss very much. They always play with me and hold me on their laps after they pluck my ear hair – sometimes I even get to play with other pups – but I’ve never had to go for the “Full Monty” before. Bath, blow dry, hair cutting, paw trim, nails cut, face trimmed, butt shaved (::shudder::)…..okay, I went through it all (although they did notice how much I hate my paws being touched).

There I was, fluffy and sweet-smelling. Isn’t that good enough? Oh no – then they topped it all off by putting a bright pink flower on each ear and tying a rainbow heart bandanna around my neck! What kind of look is that for Destructo-Pup?!

THEN, if that’s not bad enough, my family oooooo’ed and ahhhhhhh’ed over me when they picked me up and then took pictures of me at home! I didn’t want to look at the camera – I didn’t want anyone to recognize me!

But I knew my mom would post pictures, so I beat her to it so I could tell my side of the story. (Mom and DD say I had those big pleading “Puss-n-Boots” eyes.) Here I am after the grooming -I did get those flowers off my ears 5 minutes later!

I will not look at the camera….

I said, I will NOT look at the camera! ::how humiliating::

How much longer is this going to go on?!

Ack! You caught me looking! Somebody get me out of these things!

Oh no, they’re talking about taking me in for another grooming!! And a special grooming for Christmas! What’s a pup to do?!
