We adopted Daisy from BONES on February 2, 2008 and our lives changed forever. We had adopted Buddy and Rosie from a shelter in March of 2000. Sadly we lost our dear sweet Rosie in December of 2007. She lived 11 months longer than anyone anticipated and as our vet said, "we love it when we are wrong." Rosie left us at 16 and she had a wonderful life. She was beloved by all who knew her and gave us more joy than we ever thought possible.
Then, dear sweet Daisy came into our family and we will never ever be the same. She is sweet, playful and just about the cuddliest dog we have ever known. Daisy is fast, energetic and full of life. We, our neighbors, our friends, family and our vets fell in love with her. She has the greatest personality and is so much fun. Her big brother Buddy at 13 was very lonesome after Rosie passed. And, so were we. Stu was not ready for a new beagle to join us, but I was. It wasn't until Judith and Ruthie the beagle came to visit and we saw how much Buddy enjoyed running around the yard with Ruthie. It was then that we realized how quiet the house had become and how lonely we all were.
We contacted BONES and were put in touch with Ann who was truly amazing and helped find that forever home (ours!) for Daisy (who was really Kerry from Derry!) Ann told us it could be months before we found our new little girl. Well, in a matter of a few weeks we were on our way up to meet Anne and take Daisy home. We were all a little nervous but managed to make it through the first week where among other things, Daisy chewed out of her crate on the first day and jumped over gates on the second day. She finally found her new spot, next to her brother Buddy, in an oversized chair in our bedroom, overlooking the front yard. Daisy and Buddy are getting along beautifully with only an occasional bark or growl. Daisy loves her backyard and loves to run circles in the yard chasing toys, her tail or her brother. She especially loves the sunny spots to rest or nap. We cannot put into words how grateful we are for all the help and advice we received from Ann, Anne and Judith.
Adopting Daisy into our family has brought us so much joy and filled a very large void in our lives left by our dear Sweet Rosie. We think Rosie is smiling down upon us and laughing because on Daisy's first venture out to the backyard she dug up an old pair of underwear that Rosie had buried sometime ago. We are just over the moon in love with Daisy and we kinda think she likes us too! She greets us with her tail wagging, nose prints on the side lights and almost always has a toy in her mouth for us. Thanks again for bringing Daisy into our lives. We will be forever grateful to all the wonderful people at BONES.
