AT LAST MY OWN DAISY DOG

 Ralph (the brown dog) with Daisy (my dog) playing at the park

At last I have a dog. I have wanted one since my last dog Sal died. I found her through the Humane Society. 

Her name is Daisy and she is a sweetheart.

There is a no leash policy here. Usually the dogs are taken by their owners to the neighborhood park for exercise and to play with other dogs. 

A new beginning for her and me. I am ready.

  1. Which one is Daisy? I'm guessing the black. They both look nice though.

    1. Barbara -- I went back in and designated under my photo my dog Daisy. She is the big black lady in the photo. So far she has met most of the dogs that live up here on this ridge. She is quite the social person. She needs a little bit of training yet but she has picked up what I taught her so far in a speedy fashion. thanks for your comment.

  2. Is Daisy the lab or the little one? I am guessing she is the lab because she is in the centre of the picture. No matter, really. You have rescued each other. How beautiful is that?

    1. Birdie -- how clever is the best pals graphic! I marked the photo designating Ralph as the brown dog. I guess I did not mark it well. So I have re-marked the photo (under the photo). The big black lady is Daisy. I think folks that live alone should consider a pet -- they are great company. thanks for the comment -- baarbara

  3. How wonderful for both you and Daisy. I hope you have many years to enjoy each other's company.

    BTW, my daughter adopted her dog from a shelter in Portland and named her Daisy too.

    1. Florence -- I like the name Daisy -- it seems such a happy name. Nice that she adopted from the Portland shelter. Although it is sad to realize there are so many dogs needing homes -- I think more folks are getting dogs (and cats) from shelters. -- barbara

    1. June -- Daisy is eight years old. I wanted an older dog as so many older dogs are not adopted in shelters. But she sure has a lot of energy. thanks for the comment -- barbara

    1. Star -- My new baby is eight years old but has the energy of a young one. We have bonded very nicely. A few habits need corrected but they are minor. I feel bad that someone had to give up this very wonderful dog to a shelter. thanks -- barbara

  7. Labs are such steady dogs. Daisy is doing a good job of making friends. Starting with you. Daisy is a great name.

    1. Joanne -- Labs are steady and loyal. I have had two labs during my adult years. Yes, Daisy does mix well with the other dogs around here. Running in the park is a favorite pastime. She runs like a deer. This should be a fun summer with her by my side -- even in the cab of my truck. thanks -- barbara

    1. Michelle -- thanks for the good wishes. I found it interesting how a dog acclimates itself to its new surrounding. For her first week she acted like a visitor to my home. then something clicked in -- as if it suddenly dawned on her that this is her place too. -- barbara

    1. Rita -- She watches every move I make. When she is clear across the field she will occasionally look back to see where I am. Dogs have always amazed me with their human bonding. She is a good watch dog too which is a bonus. thanks -- barbara

    1. Hattie -- thanks. This is my sixth dog I have had since my children left home. Before that dogs belonged to the family, we all shared their care. Very few months were spent without a dog around either as a family or me as an adult living on my own. So I am happy to have a dog pal around me again. -- barbara

    1. Teresa -- Nice that you stopped by. Yes, I got this girl from the humane society. She is now rather settled into a routine. She is a sweet but rambunctious big dog. For an eight year old she runs like an antelope. Nice to have a dog around again. thanks for the comment --- barbara
