A Good Dog

Six and a half years ago, we decided to get a second dog as a friend for our boxer-lab mix. The agreement was for a younger male dog. Instead, I brought home an older female dog. Her name was Daisy.

She was one of the best dogs I've ever owned. Her nickname was "The Smiling Bulldozer" because she would walk right through you, smiling the entire time. She was born without a tail, but would wag the nub that she had for all she was worth.

Daisy and Indy

She had a heart of gold, unless you were a small fuzzy animal in her yard. Then you were toast. She would present us with at least 1 trophy each year. Once, she even hid one in the house because we kept taking them from her.

I claim this bed in the name of Daisy

Last night, Paul and I had to put our dog Daisy down. She was 13 and a half years old.

I'm so sorry :( I know that is one of the hardest things to do.

I am so sorry. We had to put one of our cats down last week and it is one of the hardest things ever. And then you walk around feeling loose ends for several weeks being constantly reminded of the giant hole in your family.

I am so sorry. It's so tough to do that. She looked like a sweet and wonderful dog.
