Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

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

Monday Morning Chuckle – Yorkie Becomes International Canine Supermodel!

Move aside Kate Moss – Manfred of Sweden has arrived!

And I thought those imported Irish sweaters were pricey!!

Manfred is a Yorkie who lives in Sweden but can’t handle the cold weather. So his ingenious owner designed and created a line of clothes of the same high quality and design as her own clothes, and the multi-million dollar company, Manfred of Sweden, was born.

Manfred isn’t just the inspiration for this line of canine clothing and matching bags, he’s also the model and has become the top canine supermodel of the world. Manfred of Sweden clothes are carried in only the ritziest boutiques, and they’re made with materials like lambskin, real gold, sterling silver, fine pearls, Swarovski crystals – you get the idea!

While this is nothing short of brilliance on the part of his owner, the chuckle comes to me from the prices people are willing to pay for dog clothes – how about $1,471 for the American Bag dog carrier that matches the $601 American Jacket?

Or maybe you’d like to tone it down with a $220 black retro T-shirt….

And of course, your pooch can never, but never, wear the same thing twice….  🙂


LOVIN’ That Camera!


I'm ready for my close-up!

If this dog was human, she’d be a celeb for sure. She just LOVES being the center of attention! Just point a camera at her and – BAM – she freezes like a fashion model on a shoot. “Strike the pose” could be her tag line! And she’ll stay frozen in place until she hears the “click” of the camera, then she continues going about her business.

Only once did she get fed up with all the camera flashes; after several pictures, she grumbled a bit, got a really funny look on her face, and then turned her back to us! We thought this was pretty funny so we went in front of her, pointed the camera, and lo and behold she turned her back again, as if to say, “Enough is enough! I’m sick of all these flashes leaving spots in front of my eyes!”

So we decided to see what would happen if we turned our photographic attention elsewhere – we took a few pictures of some pretty birds at the bird feeder in our yard. She came trotting in, analyzed the situation for a bit, then decided we’d paid enough attention to these outsiders and pulled some of her attention-getting schemes: yapping…when that didn’t work she tried jumping…when that didn’t work she whined…when that didn’t work she got frustrated, grabbed a toy and raced like a lunatic around the family room, doing her short-burst growls the whole time. She was clearly frustrated at the lack of attention she was getting!

When we eventually turned the camera back to her, she went back to posing, having decided that too much attention is better than no attention at all. Whoever says animals are dumb never had many dealings with animals!
