Nicknames: Daisy Doodle Dandy, The Pirate, Miss Jane, Day Day, Jainey Girl, Bandito Gonzalez
Birthday: May 28th 2008
Likes: Daisy's favorite things are chasing her big sisters around and cuddling in my arms. She also likes soft blankets.
Pet-Peeves: She is a little bit afraid of thunder.
Favorite Toy: She loves stuffed animals that are bigger than her. She will attack them and wrestle them to the ground. Then, she will curl up on them and go to sleep.
Favorite Food: She gets fed boiled chicken and Halo dry dog food, which she loves. She almost never gets handouts, but she'll do just about anything for a french fry.
Favorite Walk: Daisy loves to go to the park. She has an extra long leash, and she'll run in circles as fast as she can over and over and over again. She prances like a little horse when she walks, and she likes to pick up leaves and carry them with her.
Best Tricks: Daisy tucks herself in at night. She goes under her blanket and lays down on her back with just her head and front feet sticking out. It's adorable and how she sleeps every night.
Arrival Story: I was going through a rather lonely time in my life when I came across Daisy's picture online. Being a dog rescuer, I'd rehabilitated many dogs who came from bad situations, but I'd never adopted a puppy. I believed that I could raise a perfect dog, with no behavior problems, gentle, submissive, happy, friendly... And that's exactly what I did. Daisy is an amazingly sweet, intelligent, and loving little girl. She brought sunshine and warmth into our home, and nothing has been the same since.
Bio: Daisy came from a private breeder in Northern Georgia. When I brought her home, she was so small that she fit in the palm of my hand. And now that she's grown, she weighs exactly one and a half pounds. She might be small, but her personality is huge! Every day of her life is the greatest adventure. She is so happy and so playful, friends to everyone, curious about everything, and very secure in herself. Daisy is just a wonderful little dog!
It is a cold, grey, and windy fall day. I am a long way from home. I was born in northern Georgia a little over a year ago. My mama adopted me when I was very small and took me to live in Alabama. Just after my first birthday, my whole family moved to New Mexico. That is where I live now. It's a lot colder here, and I have to wear a sweater every day, now that summer is over. I'm still very small (under 2 pounds). At night, I sleep with a heating pad, and during the day, I like to snuggle with mommy or with my sisters, who are all very warm. I love to play, too. This past year, I've grown a lot, maybe not in size, but in muscle tone, coordination, agility, and cognition. I'm excellent at fetching, and I have learned how to catch soft toys that are thrown to me. I'm very fast, too, and I love to run. My size used to limit me, but mom says I'm determined. I can jump really high, and I have learned to jump on both of the couches and mommy's bed. And if something is really high, I've learned how to climb. I'm like a little mountain climber. Mama found me on a desk a few days ago. My most favorite thing to climb, though, is mom. I can climb up her body like a cat, and when I reach her head a give her kisses; this makes her laugh, and it makes me very silly. I love to make mama laugh. My mom thinks I'm just about the prettiest little thing she's ever seen, and she loves me to death. My personality is really sweet. I'm the poster child for calm submissive. I haven't met anyone I don't trust, and I get along super with all of my sisters. I'm very calm and quite happy most all the time. I'm good at sharing, happy to play with anyone, obedient, quiet, and very gentle. I'm a good girl. I'm excited to see what the coming year will bring. Maybe it will snow. Maybe next year will bring another new home; mommy says she feels the winds changing again. I have a good life, and I am loved.
I'm almost a year old, and Mama is letting me write my first diary entry! I'm pretty excited! I love being alive. Every day brings something new and different. I love to go exploring in my backyard, and I love playing with my sisters. One of my favorite things is to snuggle with Mommy. I got weighed yesterday, and I weigh one and a half pounds. My Mommy's pet doves are bigger than I am. Mama says that she's never known a sweeter puppy dog, and she can't seem to stop kissing on me. I guess I'm pretty lucky to have such a good home. I am sooooo loved. I hope everybody has a great spring, and I send kisses to you all!!
