Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

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

Daisy, the cleaning supervisor

Shower cleaning day is not one that we look forward to. But this time it actually became fun when Daisy took an interest in helping…kibitzing…er, supervising.

Get that corner there. You know what? I need to come in there and stay on top of things...

Yes, that's right. Make sure you squeegee it really well now...

Good. Now make sure there are no streaks on the glass...

We’re thinking of hiring her out to cleaning companies as Staff Supervisor – how do you think she’d do? 😉

I’m…WHAT?!

Hello friends, Daisy here. I’m hijacking the blog for a good, well-deserved rant.

I went to the vet recently – no, strike that, I was taken against my will – for my annual “visit”. HAH! That’s no visit! When people visit my family, they don’t show up with needles, they don’t stick thermometers up each other, and they certainly don’t pull back each others lips to study their teeth. Not to mention some other less-than-social things that happen on this so-called vet “visit“.

It wasn’t bad enough that he gave me my annual shots (!), took my temperature (!!) and took my blood (!!!), but he poked and probed me in some very unwelcome ways. ::ahem:: I will spare you the details.

That's ME hiding under the chair in the vet's waiting room. It was no use...they found me anyway. :(

The good news is that all the test results came back perfect. I am healthy. YAY!
BUT…there’s always the other side – he called me MIDDLE AGED!!
ME!
My family calls me “puppy” more than they call me “Daisy”! They always say “You’re the sweetest little puppy ever!” How can I be middle aged?!

I have one word for you, my dear vet.
RUDE.

Yeah. That’s right.
You call me middle aged? I call you RUDE.
R-U-D-E.

You may have saved my life when I was a baby.
You may have helped me through all my dangerous damages and awful illnesses.

But you do NOT, under any circumstances, call a girl “MIDDLE AGED”.
At least not to her face.

I need some serious cuddle time after being called middle aged! I'm only 5!

Fall Festival Daisy!

We took Daisy to her first fall festival a couple of weekends ago, and she had a blast!

Well, it’s actually the second fall festival we took her to, but after driving over an hour to one last year and then searching for parking on small streets for another 15 minutes, then walking a quarter of a mile to the festival, they wouldn’t let us go down the street with the festival because dogs weren’t allowed! RUDE!!

We were pretty angry, and I did get in touch with the organizers afterwards and told them that nowhere on their website does it say “no pets” and I gave them an earful. Now they finally have that notice on their site. (Still RUDE, though!)

AAAnyway…this was a pet-friendly festival – as it should be since it’s all outdoors – and Daisy was thrilled with all the new smells and new places and, of course, all the people who couldn’t resist petting her and gushing over her. 🙂

It was perfect weather – 70 degrees and sunny. This is a small, historic New Jersey town that we’ve been going to for many years now. I just love the charm and ambiance of small old towns.

The old Farmers’ Bank building, built on a narrow corner. The building is shaped like a triangle.

As usual, my photo focus is always on the charm and serenity of areas I visit, and I realized I didn’t even take any pics of the festival itself! I enjoy the live music and all the tents with artists displaying their beautiful creations, but I never think to take pics of the crowded street scene.

So you’ll have to bear with me as I show you some of my favorite spots in town, like the peaceful lake that I always visit…

…and the bamboo forest I always hike through (VERY dense, but there is a trail!), I’m like a kid in forested areas…

…and the colors of fall starting their glorious display…

…and these little remnants of summer, quietly standing their ground so beautifully…

We walked and strolled and enjoyed ourselves for a good three hours, and I’m happy to report that Daisy did very well, both physically and without displaying any reactive leash issues. Although she wasn’t as relaxed as this little guy…

…Daisy had some cheat time, when her daddy carried her through the more congested crowds so she wouldn’t accidentally get stepped on…

Hello! Nice to meet you! Please feel free to shake my paw! :)

And of course, there was the happy ride home, where Daisy saw scenes like this

Pumpkins pumpkins everywhere!
