Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

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

Daisy and The Roofers….Noise Upon Noise

So Summer Project #1 is finally done – our new roof is in place. Woohoo!

I'm watching you...through every single window....

Roofing means lots of noise, lots of strange workmen, and one very ruffled Havachon.

A very ruffled Havachon means lots of barking, racing around, and whining.

It’s the whining that I can’t stand. 😦

I do have to say, though, that Daisy calmed down after the first ten torturous minutes each day. Well, she calmed down to the point where she didn’t have to bark constantly – she still sat at attention, trotted around trying to locate the source of each BANG and went berserk when she saw workmen climbing up ladders or walking past windows. But hey, at least I didn’t have to endure 10 hours a day of nonstop barking!

These roofers started at 7 AM and worked until 5 PM for three days straight, including Saturday. So much for a sleep-in on the weekend!

Fortunately, the weather was with us. No rain, and the severe heat of temperatures in excess of 100° was replaced by temps in the low 90s. Believe it or not, that actually seemed like a relief!

It was interesting to see that even roofers have become aware of the dangers of sun exposure – they all wore long pants,

And now you're over there...I still see you, you can't escape me!

long-sleeved shirts, and wide-brimmed hats! Gone are the good ol’ days of shorts-wearing, shirtless workmen with muscles glistening in the sun LOL!

Daisy missed all of her daytime naps; needless to say, she was pooped from lack of sleep and having her inner watchdog cued up every second of every day.

Summer Project #2 – complete kitchen makeover!

Today is Daisy’s 5-month birthday!

Who, ME? Five months old ALREADY??

Yup, Daisy turns a whole 5 months old today! We’ve only had her 2-1/2 months, but she fits into the family so well that it feels like she’s just always been here with us.

It’s been many years between our last dog and this one, and even though I hesitated for several years about giving up our freedom to get another dog (while ooo-ing and ahhh-ing over every little dog we saw), now I can’t imagine ever being without one again.

We love watching her little “milestone moments”, and she surprised us with another one for her birthday – her watchdog instincts kicked in! Up until now, the doorbell could ring and ring, people could knock on the door – heck, someone could probably kick the door down and all she’d do is sit there and watch with interest. But today she heard something that we didn’t even hear, and she stood at attention, listening attentively and letting loose a series of little muffled barks in the direction of one particular door. It turned out to be nothing, but it’s nice to know that she’s now “on the job”!
