Meet my Blog Friend Daisy (and her human transcriber Barbara)


No offense to any of you, but my Daisy is my cutest blog friend. She has short white hair, bright black eyes, and the sweetest smile ever. She is also a poodle. She blogs here:
http://fur-licity.blogspot.com, and she has quite a harrowing tale (tail?).

She was raised in a puppy mill, where she was seen as little more than a furry pair of ovaries. By the time she got to Barbara and her forever home, she was a trembling, terrified mess. She didn't know what a toy was. Loud noises scared her. She even feared the affection and love Barbara offered. In fact, the blog started as a way for Barbara to process the challenges of taking in a traumatized dog.

Has it been two years now, Barbara? I think so. Daisy is so much better now. She plays. She loves. She trusts--that's the big one--because that means Daisy can, finally, experience some sense of peace. Now, when it thunders, she stands on the bed and protects Barbara.

Check it out. Say hi to Daisy. She's quite a trooper.

Hey Daisy, nice to meet you. I'm so glad Barbara gave you a home, and I'll bet you're queen of that house now :)

Thanks for introducing Daisy to us Margaret, I'm headed over to visit Daisy, and Barbara too, now ...

Daisy said...

Margaret!!! That's ME!!! You put my picture right on your wonderful blog! I'm so excited!
Joanne did come for a visit. She forgot the dog treats but we made some fresh coffee for her anyway. (I peeked at her blog too)

Thank you for sharing my story. You do that very well...almost like I'm a goddess.

I think I've been here three years now. I started the blog in 2008.

Thanks again. Luv U
Daisy, and Barbara too.

Daisy: Barbara is the goddess, but you're awfully close.

Oh, Daisy. I get teary when I read about your story. Thank Goddess for good people like your human, Barbara, who helped you get back to your true and happy dog spirit.

Oh this is awesome! What a great idea for a blog for such a cute little dog. I'm off to have a look...

I remember visiting Daisy's blog and being so touched. And now I'm retouched.

Like you, Margaret, I love Daisy and her human. I learn a lot from Daisy. She teaches me to be strong and brave :-)

This is such a touching story. I wish there weren't so many like it. In getting to know dogs and how individual they are, it's hard for me to fathom how anyone could mistreat them.

Daisy, I'm happy for you, and especially happy for Barbara. Now I'll come visit and tell you directly.

Thank you, Margaret.

By the way, Karin, you're beautiful the way you are. You don't need retouching. (My WV, however, is "goonn.")

Barbara must have the patience of a saint. I haven't observed that most goddesses are quite so patient--wanting to go for the dramatic and the big flash. Anyway, it is not easy to turn around some early experiences in animals or in humans. I am on my way to check out that blog.
