Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

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

Monday Mischief: Cushy Doggy Prison

on December 16, 2013

Now that Daisy is starting to feel better, she’s also starting to feel energetic. She thinks she can go right back to her normal activities, which of course she can’t, since her favorite normal activities are jumping and running. πŸ™‚

The vet said this would be the most difficult time period to keep her still, and boy, was he ever right!

I know her leg still has a long way to go because she still won’t use it much, and if we pick her up the wrong way, she lets out a tiny little whimper. Fortunately that rarely happens.

BUT – during her energetic periods, it can be very hard to keep her from jumping off the couch. So we have to improvise and get a little help from our friend and Daisy’s enemy, The Gate. We expand it, turn it sideways and put it in front of her while one of us sits next to her on the couch, so she’s totally blocked in.

Drat! Foiled again!

Drat! Foiled again!

It may look like a Doggy Prison, but it certainly is a comfy one!

    Sweet Daisy we just want to see you all healed up and back to normal so anything that works to help you get there is a great idea we think. You can get lots of pats while you are behind that gate. Hugs and nose kisses

  2. Awwww, poor Daisy. This too shall pass and you will be your old self again soon.

  3. I know that’s very hard for an active dog to slow down and I hope your leg will be well soon.

    Jail’s no fun, but at least she has a comfy cell. Glad to hear Daisy is feeling more energetic.

  6. You really have to think ahead, don’t you! That’s a challenge, but you’ve been so creative in your efforts to protect her and speed her healing. This looks like a great idea and I’m rather impressed! πŸ™‚ At least she knows she’s got company. I hope that healing is complete soon and she doesn’t have any residual discomfort. You’ve done things “right” and I think that could be expected. πŸ™‚

    I’m glad she’s feeling g better!

    Oh, no, no, no!!!! This is only a half measure. What you need is an aviary in which the whole family could sit together! πŸ™‚

    Smart idea. I’m glad you’re on the mend, Daisy. πŸ™‚

  10. Poor Daisy. Heal fast! I have limited faith in a baby gate to keep Mr. N from anything. He can jump out of his playpen and I’ve seen him jump/climb over a four feet wall…

  11. Oh Daisy

    I hope you’re busy thinking up some new mischief to get them back with when you’re up and running around again buddy?! πŸ™‚

    Wags to all,

    Your pal Snoopy πŸ™‚

    What an excellent idea! I bet it is hard to keep her from jumping, but the good news is that she is feeling better. πŸ™‚

    The gate, just about as bad as the cone. We know from experience! But it’s a great idea and will hopefully prevent any further damage.

    So glad to see/ hear Daisy is becoming her usual mischievous self. I don’t envy you trying to keep her calm and restricted for even longer as she heals more and more and returns to full health along with boundless energy.
    Thanks for all your comments – I’ll be back to normal service soon, catching up on blogs and commenting. Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2014

      Haha you truly understand! Yes, keeping an active pup calm for months is extremely difficult. Today I caught her midway into a jump off the couch – literally *caught* her! Happy holidays and Merry Christmas to you too!
