Those Peculiar Funny Little Havs
Does anyone have a Hav that does peculiar things???
Here's some examples: One day I was sitting in my family room watching TV when I heard a cupboard door slam in my kitchen (which is directly off of my family room). When I switched my gaze from the T.V to the kitchen, my Hav, Sophie was standing in the center of the floor just staring at me. Well, thinking that I was just hearing things, I continued to watch T.V.
Moments later, I heard the cupboard slam again and I wondered..Did Sophie do that? Well when I said "Sohie, what????", she went over to the cupboard
(floor level of course), stuck her head in the door, pushed it open, then used her head to slam it and came back to the center of the floor and just stared at me...Well this lead me to believe that she was trying to get my attention so I got up and said "DO you want FOOD?"...which caused her to go into a little dance, so I fed her!
Well this behavior not only continued when she was hungry or her water dish was empty..but she refined it!!
On another occasion when I was watching Lord of The Rings, Sophie went into the kitchen and started her door slamming. Well, not wanting to tear myself away from a great scene, I ignored her, which caused the banging to grow louder.
I wondered what she would do if I continued to ignore her, so I did. Well
that caused her to add a growl to her little act. Ignoring her further caused her to bang the door, growl and run over to the entry of the family room!
The other thing that Sophie will do is that if she REALLY needs to go out and go potty she will run into the vinyl blinds that are hanging on the family room
door...thus making enough racket to draw my attention. If I ignore her, she adds a growl to that act also and will just continue this until I stop and let her out!
One last thing is that I keep a bag of dog bisquits on my night stand. Each morning when I get up to let both of my Habv's out, (which can be 4am-6am) I give them each a bisquit whne I go back to bed. Well, Sophie has figured out the routine and if she doesn't get her bisquit she will sit on the bed and stare at the package. If I ignore her she will then add a growl to her stare..
If I continue to ignore her she will jump on me and run up and down my body,
grumbling the entire way!!!
What's with THAT?
