Talking Hav Quirks

Here are my dogs weird quirks:

Mimi is deathly afraid of babies and toddlers, she'll shake uncontrollably and if the door is open she won't come in until they are gone. She's gotten better with my niece as she's older now (3 y/r) but occasionally she'll do it. Its crazy cuz I can't recall of anything that would cause her to do this.

When Mimi is outside she'll scratch on the glass endlessly until we let her in. Most retarded habit & she's corrupted almost every dog in our household this amazingly annoying technique. She does this to gates too.

Sophie will not drink out of the water bowl till she sees you change it. Then she still sits there and stares at it & has to be placed right in front of it before she'll think about drinking. Sometimes she'll only drink if there is an ice cube in there. On a very rare occasion she'll drink out of the bowl without it being changed in front of her but she is very weary about it. She has to make sure that her body is as far away from the bowl as possible & cranes her neck. Kinda reminds me of a gazelle drinking at a lion's watering hole. Crazy dog!

Sophie freaks out at the sound of a binder clicking shut. She will throw herself in whomevers lap is closest. Its a great way to get an aloof dog to cuddle lol

Sophie doesn't do this anymore but it was by far her strangest habit I couldn't figure out. We have a dog room and she would start shivering once she got in the room & would not eat her treats once in there. She did this for the longest time and it stopped when we got a comfy bed for her & Mimi. She's still wishy washy about eating her treats in there.

Can't wait to hear more Hav quirks =)

Buster has a fetish for kleenex. He jumps on tables, begs, and steals kleenex when we are not looking. He also likes to TP the bathroom if we happen to leave it open. It's a very interesting process because he doesn't rip the paper, he delicately takes long strands and raps them around the toilet and takes them into the bathtub. His last little quirk is he likes to tip over garbage cans. It's really annoying and we've had to hide them all.

I think all Havs love Kleenex, ours don't do it as much as they are older but every now and again they do. They also like Q-tips!

I know what you mean my Phoebe the oldest would not go out into the yard when the dandelions came up she stayed in the stone drive for two weeks..it was hysterical. My little Benji would run thru the yard and snap the tops of the dandelions off...he loved it.

Scooter will only eat off a plate. Murphy will eat anything that can't eat him first.

They both love the cardboard from tp and paper towel rolls.

I think Scooter & Sophie are related! She hates bowls that have depth. I found a bowl that is very shallow in depth & when she has issues with that I put it on a plate for her.

I don't know how many bowls, plates, even floor tiles I went through before I found something the girls would eat out of. Bella hates when I open the end table drawer. The sound of chip bag opening scares her too. They both love kleenex but Zoey will still sneak them. If they are not in the room with you they are probably into kleenex. Bella is usually the look out. She will run into the bathroom to warn Zoey I'm coming. They are just so funny.

Blessings, Luna and the girls

Benji needs fresh, crystal clear water in a clean bowl. The temperature of the water also has to be to his liking. Lizzie tends to "muddy" the water in their water bowl. He won't drink from it until I change water.

Best, Poornima

Whenever Onyx goes outside to the toilet she has to bring something back inside with her, usually a dry leaf. Her brother apparently brings in sticks, so it runs in the family lol

Sounds just like Sophie! Ever try one of those fountain bowls? They'd be really smart if they made it out of stainless steel not plastic..
