Havanese anyone??

So today was our breeders annual Havanese get together.

We haven’t been able to make it in the past but today we could.

20-30 Havanese all running around…it was their day. The crazy thing is you would expect with that many dogs to have barking and fighting. Nope- not a sound, except maybe a whimper or two of ones that wanted a piece of pizza from their owns (Indy baby didn’t even do that :))

It was so cute to see the little 6mth old puppies and watch all the dogs play around in what must have been doggie heaven for them. Friends, toys, and treats. After about an hour Indy baby had had enough and was snuggled up on the couch with her family.

MB was even more in heaven jumping around and loving and playing with all the puppies. The dream to be a Vet stays alive.




Watch closely for an hour

Ok so last night after I finished the post on our wonderful weekend. I shut down the Mac and headed to bed.

I let Indy out for her last business of the evening.

She started to play with something and then yelp and was back inside. We turned on the lights. A scorpion. Indy had gotten stung.

Freak out begins.

This is our first sting for the house.

We had no idea what to do. I pull up the website and it says remove the stinger. Well we couldn’t find it…but Indy had rubbed her face immediately after so I assumed she got it. Vacuumed up just to be sure.

She seemed fine as we sat there and called the Emergency Vet.

Turns out that dogs are immune to scorpions, well at least the Arizona breed. Unless they are allergic.

So we had to just sit tight and watch her for an hour and make sure she didn’t have an allergic reaction.

All clear. She was fine. Right as rain. Outside of the moment right after you would have never know.

Thank goodness.

That was a scary moment. One I hope we don’t have to repeat anytime soon, though now we know what to do.

Ahh the perils of living in Arizona. Totally worth it, but ugh can’t we just figure out how to get rid of all the scorpions!!!

My blogging buddy agrees.

MB and her sissy

MB wanted a dog from the time she was 2.

She has one now! They both took a little adjusting to each other…but most nights its lots of chasing and wrestling on the floor.

Now and again I would say Indy gets a little freaked out by MB but there is nothing but love across the board.

Will be good to see them both mellow out with age 🙂

Potty training fail

You are probably wondering how I could have a potty training failure with a 6-year-old.

Well it is not MB.

Remember that cute adorable puppy we got back before Christmas.

Yep our cute little baby girl.

The one who potty trained pretty easy in the first couple months.

Not so much anymore. For whatever reason she has gone backwards.

Accident free for the most part up until a few weeks ago.

Now she is having accidents while we sleep at night. Accidents while we are all home and her doggy door is wide open. Accidents right after I try and take her out to go potty and she runs right back inside the house.

My little pleasing puppy is not making me very happy..and while she knows it, she keeps on having accidents.

Anyone out there know if this is normal for puppies almost 9 months old???? Tips!!!


Joy of Love: Day 2

Day 2 of the challenge.


I decided to go with Indy, our puppy, today.

We haven’t taken any photos of her recently and she has grown so much.

Plus it is freezing here today (30 degrees!!!!) yes freezing for us in Arizona.

So TB and I are snug in our sweats and not picture ready- yeah the joys of working from home.

I really loved the tip of getting on level ground with the subject.

This meant laying on the floor for photos..but totally worth it!

Our new addition

Well the first weekend hasn’t gone so bad.

A few potty accidents, but she is doing really well going outside.

Nighttime hasn’t been too bad…she keeps waking up at 5:30 and I would let her whine but we have had a guest so we have tried to quiet her a little more than probably is good….tonight will be some tough love.

MB and just loving her to pieces. She is reading her stories, chasing her along, and first thing in the morning they have some good snuggle time.

It took a day or so but I think MB has mastered walking her on the leash and letting her “sniff things out”.

Now if I could just get the rest of the family healthy and all sleeping in their own beds so I could get a better night’s sleep all would be right.
