DAISY

A half-starved bag of bones with a sweet nature and desperate to please.  A stray picked up by a dog warden freezing, cold and allegedly, one or two wet nights away from death.  So thin that we're not even sure what she is although Collie and German Shepherd are likely to be part of the mixture.  8 years old according to the vet used by the rescue centre, seems younger to us.  She knows sit and down, seems to be house-trained and is currently stuck to me like a roll of Velcro.

Full story and pictures later but for now, welcome home Daisy.








(the Little Red Tractor is going to need a new name!)

  3. Hazel, Sue, thank you both :} When she is a little more relaxed and has learnt keyboard skills, I'll have Daisy thank you personally :}

  4. Oh, how sweet. Once she's all fed up and healthy, she'll be even more beautiful. Can't wait to see a picture of Miss Daisy being pulled around in the trailer by Daisy.

    1. FFG, thank you :} You're right, when she's got some flesh on her bones she's going to be a stunner. So far she appears to be un-phased by anything in the house although whether she will be so calm in the face of 98 decibels of garden tractor remains to be seen. "Miss Daisy" is going to have to become Little Red Tractor or some such other appellation!

      Sorry I haven't replied to the comment you left 6th November (Home Again) - email glitch meant I haven't been getting the notifications and brain-glitch has meant I haven't been on the blog much.

  5. Well well well. Lookit that. Someone has fallen hard for a glossy coat, long ears and big brown eyes. A good match, I'd say. Welcome Daisy! :-D

    1. That's 'really long ears' - was she a bat in a previous life, I wonder... ;-)

      Still delighted for you. :-)

  6. Kris, Hazel, thanks ladies. Wish you could meet her for real, she's got a lovely temperament which is amazing given what she's been through.

    1. PS to Hazel: as you know she narrowly avoided being named Yoda or Gizmo ..... but she does look like a bat from some angles!

  7. I'm sure Daisy has fallen on her feet. From the photo she doesn't seem 8 years old.

    1. Sue, our vet thinks she's no older than five. A piece of paper from the rescue centre said "4 years 7 months' which they admit is a guess* but apparently their computer "has" to have this information, so we've taken that as "good enough" and given her a birthday of 1st May 2008 ....


      * they also have no idea how come the website originally said eight!
