Daisy came into our lives in November of 2007, from the Dogs Trust in Leeds.

When we first got her home she was straight away, a really snuggly dog. And she still loves to snuggle up on the sofa. She would do this all day if she could. To start with we had a gate up to stop her getting into the living room whilst we were out, and she slept in the kitchen but it only took her 6 weeks and she worked out that it was low enough to jump over and then she could go to sleep on the sofa. But she has since wormed her way into sleeping in our bed.

 Daisy really likes to go walking, she likes to go for walks along the canal and see the ducks, and also while walking along the canal bank she can try and pull us over to play with the sheep and cows. She loves to go to weir in the centre of the village to see the ducks.  Daisy also likes to visit the pub, I think this is mostly as she gets lots of attention and strangers give her crisps and pork scratchings. She loves her chew toys, and always seems to be chewing them. She has her favourites but we have to be careful as she seems to be able to destroy most toys in just a few days. But we are soft and always buy her more. She also loves to play tug and will love you forever if you give her belly rubs.

Her favourite most favourite things are going to the dog park to chase frisbee’s and sleeping in between me and James in bed and taking over the whole bed.

Basically she is a real character and we love her to bits.

    I have so enjoyed reading your blog. Your love for Daisy shines through—what a lucky dog to find you —–and I know you will reply —–how lucky you were to find her too. Mary

    Thanks Mary.

    We got a dog as I have had dogs all my life and I missed the companionship and love ththat is unique to dog ownership. Plus my other half works night so every other week I was on my own overnight and of course he was on his own during the day. And she is great company and lost of fun. We do spoil her a bit but she gives so much love in return.

    We also have an extra special bond as I have Bipolar Affective Disorder and she is like my own little psych nurse, she snuggles up and tries to cheers me up when I am depressed and when I am manic she is amy little partner is silliness, larking about and general tomfoolery. I owuldn’t be without her thats for sure.
