Some Days, My Heart Just Soars

Daisy went home yesterday. She is about 8-10 years old, and came to us two days before Christmas last year. Sweet doesn't begin to describe this incredible little Beagle.

She was pulled from our local animal control facility along with three Pit Bulls. Can you imagine someone not claiming a lovely girl like this? I have my theory: It was obvious that she was used for breeding. My thought is that she was used then dumped when they no longer needed her. 

I'm sure she was never showered with love. Probably just the opposite. She never barked, flinched when you moved a little too quickly around her, and it took her quite some time to feel really comfortable around you - to trust that your intentions were to help, not hurt her.

Needless to say, Daisy quickly became a favorite of mine. She wasn't a major cuddler like some of the dogs, but she always greeted me with those big, brown eyes, a tail that wagged as fast as lightning and love, love, love. She'd eventually settle down near me and let me pet her, and after a few months she'd finally crawl into my lap.

Last night, her new mom reported that she's settling in nicely. I think Daisy has finally found the perfect match! A nice, quiet home with someone to love her and keep her safe. And someone to send me picture updates on a frequent basis! 


  1. i love me a happy ending :) great way to start my day

  2. Oh hurray for Daisy! That is wonderful that she has found her perfect forever home!! What wonderful news!!

  3. She looks like such a sweet dog. I love when things turn out well!

  4. Oh, I just LOVE Daisy! She is an absolute sweetheart, and her new family is so lucky. Whenever she saw us at PAWS, she would greet Tracey and me with a wagging tail a look that said, "can you please pet me? Pleeeaaaase?" :)

  5. Yippee! I'm so very much glad that Miss Daisy found her Most Perfect Home That Ever Was! She most certainly deserves to be loved and petted and made over for the rest of her days!

    Wiggles & Wags,
