Daisy was turned in to my vet's office as a stray. I had just found a stray myself, who needed a companion. When I mentioned that I'd be interested in adopting a younger, smaller dog, Dr. Peterson brought out the cutest black dog imaginable. Daisy was a Labrador/Dachshund mix who eternally looked like a Lab puppy. I feel in love in an instant, and that love affair lasted throughout Daisy's life.|
She was a wild thing with a mind of her own - always running off to explore the neighborhood, and coming home when it suited her (or she allowed someone to catch her!). She was a smart girl - the first of my dogs to learn to run the agility course at the dog park (which she did, one final time, just last week). She was an affectionate baby - always willing to cuddle, and she loved to be petted on her head and ears. She was a welcoming and loving spirit and my life will be much emptier without her evening greeting (with a tennis ball in her month) or her morning "hello" - standing on her hind legs for a hug. Daisy developed heart problems a few months ago, and she has been on several medications, but this morning, she finally succumbed. Her "sisters" will miss her, as will we. I can't imagine sitting down this evening to watch TV without her curled by my side.
Run with the wind, Daisy.....I will look forward to meeting you again at the Bridge.
2/17/17 - Darling girl, it's been two weeks now since Penney crossed the bridge and I imagine you together. How she loved to play with you in the mornings, when we played hide and seek under the covers. This weekend, we will be casting her ashes into the bayou with rose petals, just as we did with yours. I miss you every day and look forward to seeing all of you at the Bridge one day.
3/7/17 - Daisy, my love, you left us a year ago today. I miss you with all my heart! You were such a wild little spirit who chose to share your life with me....with Penny...with Patrick...and all who came after that. Such a peaceful girl for such a wild child! I long to hold you in my arms and to play with you under the covers as we used to do. I so look forward to seeing you at the Bridge and tugging on those soft, silky black ears once more. I will think of you always.
5/5/17 - Dear little girl, your friend, Beaux, passed over the Bridge this morning. You, Miko, and Little Penney need to keep an eye out and welcome him. I miss you every day, sweetheart.
10/15/17 - Sweet Daisy, as we prepare to move to our new house from the only home you knew with us, I see you everywhere! I miss you so very much. I have been sorting through boxes of pictures and found tons of them with you and Penny when you were both young and running around the dog park like two banshees. Love you, little wild one!
2/3/18 - Crazy Daisy girl, I miss you every single day! Today is the anniversary of Penney's joining you at the Bridge and I know that you and she are running around, barking like maniacs, chasing everything in sight! I so wish you were still with me...I am looking forward to seeing you and pulling on those soft silky ears again one day. I've left you a Valentine so you'll know I'm thinking of you.
8/15/18 - Daisy, my love - did you find Mia when she crossed the Bridge last week? I know you will be happy to see her again, as will your sisters, friends, and her brother, Austin. I think of you so often, Daze - miss you so much! I will be so happy to hug you and hold you again someday. Be at peace and make sure that Mia is taken care of and knows how much she is missed on this side of the Bridge.
1/1/19 - Oh, sweet girl! Happy New Year! All of the grandkids were here and we missed you so much. I know that Penny misses you very much, even though she loves playing with Joe. I look forward to holding you and feeling your soft fur again one day.
