One Year Later

Today is the anniversary of the death of our little angel Daisy. Daisy (beagle) was my companion in almost everything I did. She was a stray that had been abused. No one claimed her so she became ours. 10 years she lived with us here on earth. We enveloped every minute. She was the best doggie.

She loved riding in the car, that was good because I took her almost everywhere. She had a cooling pad and mini air condition in the car during the summer and blankets and heating pad in the winter. She didn't care about the weather as long as she was with us. She knew when we were going to our cabin in Tennessee, once she jumped in the car while we were loading, she wouldn't get out. So we loaded faster and left. I know it probably wasn't safe but When my DH was driving, she laid in my lap on pillows. She loved it, but I loved it more because I could hold her. when we went she When we got near, she would automatically wake up just before the exit. Donít know how she knew, but she did that with a lot of places. She was so funny, she would just jump out of the jeep and run, run, run. We knew that there was a bear around because she would come running from the woods and bury herself under some leaves at a tree. I guess she didnít know that we couldnít do much to protect her except run in the cabin or jump in the car. She loved it so much. Our land backs up to the National Forest, so we sometimes had varies visitors, some good, some bad. But we had an automatic radar before hand just in case ďDaisyĒ.

She was my helper just like a guide dog. Before one of my knee surgeries, we installed a doggie door because I couldnít get up and let her out. But anytime she went out, when she came back she would search for me if I wasnít in my bed. She would search every room until she found me. It was so cute to see her beautiful little face peer around the doors to find me. But once she found me, she would go and lay down. Due to my illness, I frequently fall. She would get my husband or daughter every time I fell. She would get them and then come back and stand over me. She was so precious.

I could go on and on about how great she was, I made up a photo book and story & had it printed in hard cover thru Now we can go back and just enjoy the pictures. I am so glad that I had made a calendar for my husband, and took pictures of her in Pigeon Forge on the kiddie rides, those pictures in addition to all the moments of our lives. I have a scrapbook, but with everything else going on it isnít finished, maybe it will never beÖÖ If I donít finish I always doing something with her.

My heart is so heavy, not a day goes by that she isnít in my mind. I just didnít realize this day would be so hard. Every time I think my tears have stopped, they flood open again. It feels just like the day last year when I had to put her to sleep. She had cancer & fought it so hard. We only knew about three weeks. Sometimes she was normal and sometimes sluggish. When she stopped eating, we knew we had to say goodbye.

So if you are reading this, thanks for listening and please say a little prayer for my little baby that has gone to live in heaven. I know my family are taking care of her, but I miss her so much.
