Daisy earned her wings today : 2011-10-22

No need to change her blog title, Daisy was always happy. Even on her last trip to the vet, she managed to perk up and enjoy the “car ride”. She explored the ground with her nose and walked into the vets. Just 1 hour earlier she was yelping in pain, acting like an invisible hand was striking her head. These episodes started a few weeks ago and have been increasing in frequency and intensity. I had at first thought it was a pinched nerve but after watching her a few times it was looking more like some kind of seizure. Afterward, she would look at me with pleading eyes like I had some control over what was happening.

It was never a chore to take care of her…it was a honor. Every dog that comes into your life teaches you a different lesson. Daisy taught us to live for today. Each day is a gift to be enjoyed, a time to share with loved ones. Daisy will be greatly missed. The house is eerily quiet tonight, Daisy would always let us know what was on her mind about 730 at night when she would lay on the living room floor and quietly yip and yap until we went over and gave her an ear rub, a treat or picked her up and put her on the couch with us.

I want to thank the tripawds community for helping us through our journey.

    I just don’t know what to say. I know that awful silence that needs to be filled. I hope your memories will begin to fill that silence, and I hope Samson isn’t lost without his Daisy. You and Bob are in my thoughts tonight and will be for some time.

    Oh boy, Mom is in tears. We had planned to have our tripawds meet over the summer in the St. Lawrence, but it never happened. Ted will show Daisy the way. They are both running free together.

    The coyotes howl tonight in Daisy’s honor. We are deeply, deeply sorry. What a tough call, but a loving one.

    Daisy will always and forever be a part of this community. Her spunk and zest for life on those crazy wheels of her will always serve as an example of what is possible after losing a leg, even during the golden years. We are honored that you shared her life with us.

    Our hearts go out to you. xoxo

My heart breaks for you right now. I know that my Chili Dawg greeted her with a big kiss & is showing her all thegood places to swim.

  11. I am so sorry that it was Daisy’s time to journey to Rainbow Bridge. 🙁 You gave her the most unselfish gift of love….you gave Daisy her wings. In time, may memories of your girl bring smiles and happiness instead of only tears and sadness.

    Godspeed sweet Daisy. Run free with all of the heroes that have gone before you. Send your mommy pennies when you can!

    Hugs and chocolate kisses,
    Ellen & Charley
