Things on Thursday: Daisy Dolittle

Daisy is healing from her surgery. Recovery is slow, and we had to increase her dose of sedative to keep her calm. Even sedated, she cannot fully contain the bouncy exuberance of her golden retriever genetic programming.

"Mom, do you need me to Heimlich you?"

"Oh, Mom, you found just the spot behind my ear. Scratch harder!"

"Nick, you know you want to share your ice cream with me. Look into my eyes...."

"These little pills make me feel so funky."

Daisy says, "Make it an awesome matter what!"


  1. She is so beautiful! Not a bit spoiled, either. Right? Right! So happy to see you two enjoying each other - our newest little furball is a joy...just can't take my eyes off of her for a minute. Have a great day, hope that you are feeling better.

  2. Absolutely gorgeous. I know that kind of look . . . food glorious food and can't I have some!

  3. Thanks, Susan! I was going to ask you today how Daisy was going, and you read my mind. :-) She's such a gorgeous girl, very photogenic.

  4. Isn't it about a million degrees where you are or is the air- con on (in reference to the knee rug). Daisy is looking well but I completely agree with you on the retriever nature - humans could learn from this most positive nature. How much longer for the sleeping tablets

  5. Cassandra, my husband is half Finnish, so out air conditioning is kept pretty cool during the summer and the heat is set at 64 degrees F in the winter. Plus, there's a ceiling fan over the sofa, which is kept on high all the time to circulate air from upstairs. That's why I have four lap rugs in my family room year-round. It gets so chilly lying on the sofa.

  6. Thanks for the update on Daisy, I was wondering how she was doing. Nice to have a recoop buddy.


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
