Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

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

How Daisy Says “I Love You”

It’s those tender little moments between human and dog when you know you’re feeling the exact same thing.


Those special little moments when Daisy climbs up on my lap, ears limp, eyes big, tail wagging. She looks up at me with those big brown eyes, so soft and loving that it floods me with warmth. I become mush.

She cuddles on my lap, curling herself up into a tight little ball, nestled perfectly. Then she puts her head into the crook of my arm as I hug her, her paw on top of my arm as if to say, “Don’t ever let go.”

I give her a light squeeze and tell her Mommy will always love her. She tenderly looks up into my eyes for a long time, as if understanding the sentiment and returning it in the only way she knows how.

She rests her head on my chest, getting as close as she can get. I stroke her gently with my cheek on her head, and she sighs, long and deep.

There’s nothing in the world like the love of a dog.


Never Mix Business with Pleasure

No time for photos now, c'mon, let's play!

Hey, playtime is serious business! At least it is for our little Daisy, whose love of affection goes right out the window when she’s in play mode. In fact, she’ll actually turn her back on us if we so much as hint at petting her when she’s seriously munching on her Nylabone or sharing some one-on-one time with her chewy platypus.

After chasing platypus around for a while, Daisy will suddenly plop down mid-stride and just start chewing on this toy – her favorite ever since she destroyed her furry, squeaky giraffe – inasmuch as saying, “I’m done playing with you, now it’s just me and Platypus!”. Daisy loves to growl while wrestling with platypus – funny, little short growls that range from deep baritone (as deep as a 6 pound dog can get her growler to go)  up to high-pitched falsettos, sometimes in the same breath. It must be so frustrating not to be taken seriously when she’s playing the tough-guy role, because we just laugh and laugh when she does that! If she was human, I’m sure she’d be rolling her eyes at us!

If we try to pet her, she’ll growl all the louder (play growling, not warning growls) and romp around, holding platypus tightly between her sharp little teeth, until she finds a new spot to lie on. Then we get “the eyes” – just “the eyes” – watching us and making sure we’re not going to try that again.

Ah yes, there’s nothing like a good “tough guy” play session for a sweet little curly-haired girly-puppy! 🙂
