Introducing: Daisy


We found Daisy on February 22th, 2003. An aquintance had a very light colored spaniel that we liked a lot and he told us that they had decided to give him to us and then the dog got lost or stolen. An other aquintance told us to have seen said dog in the street at night.
So Estella went in the middle of the night to look for the dog. Street dogs roam the streets at night in packs, looking for food. There are so many of them in our small city! Many are beautiful dogs, bought as puppies for good money and thrown out or abandoned when the dog is grown and it is winter and it pours with rain and walking a dog is a drag.


Well, Estella didn't found the lost spaniel, but look what she did found! Of course she was very dirty and skin and bones. And this is what she looks like when 'peeled', she has beautiful human eyes, gray and soft.
Very soon she put on weight, lots of weight, as a matter of fact, and a month after arrival she gave birth (on my bed) to seven puppies, all of different pluimage, probably souvenirs of every one of her pack friends!



Daisy is a crazy little dog, well, most terriers are crazy, but she makes the funniest noises and weird jerking movements with her head and sighs and talks and smells as fresh baked bread.
Dogs not only need food and care, but they need hugs and kisses twice a day, did you know that? They thrive on love, yes they do...

  1. Daisy is a real "I must hug this dog" ! and only hugs and kisses twice a day ? If she could Peggy would be hugged whole day :) By the way, what did you do with all those puppies ?

  10. She's adorable and very lucky that you found her and gave her a home. It's very sad that 'people' just abandon their pets when they can't keep them any more.
