We had her for a wonderful 6 years. When Jack was born, it was a big adjustment. But she soon became his protector (always afraid of getting tangled in his oxygen tubing, though).
Daisy was a beautiful dog. Her golden hair covered every inch of our house, but she was such a beauty. So sweet and friendly, she would never hurt another and was always begging to play with other dogs. She was the perfect family dog, with about the best temperament one could hope for. She rarely barked. She loved walks and especially exploring where we live in the woods. On her last day, she got to do all her favorite things - she drank out of the hose, went for a ride in the car with the window down, breezes blowing, ate a double cheeseburger (we started the cheeseburger tradition for her birthday), and she even managed to take a walk. Dog cancer took her much too soon, but I think she had a pretty great life.
We will miss you, Daisy Sue.
