After Josh and I got married and moved into a house the first thing on the list for me was to get a dog. Josh, not so much...or at all. Growing up I always had a dog around me. I always had big dogs though and I wanted MY dog to be a little dog. I had heard of puggles and knew I was going to get one of those! After getting our house I looked high and low for a puggle. I finally found one and also knew right away I was going to name her Daisy.
Meet our puggle Daisy:
Don't let this picture deceive you. Daisy is HYPER! She did calm down a bit when I became pregnant with Hailey. She always sat by me and my belly. She needed 100% attention and at times still seeks that today. She will sit and stare at you as if to say, "you will love me, you won't be able to help it."
2 years later (Hailey wasn't born yet) I wanted to get another dog. Long story short. I found our next dog online and saved her...I mean adopted her.
Meet our second pup...Chloe
Chloe is a loner in the most part, but if she is looking for Daisy and can't find her she goes insane. She's a guys dog. She loves Josh, my dad and Josh's dad. She wasn't too sure about Hailey once Hailey was born:
Chloe: What's this thing?
Hailey can do anything she wants to Daisy. Daisy allows it. As long as you are touching Daisy you could be holding her tail, teething on her ears, or drooling on her head. She will love every minute of it.
Bringing Hailey home from the hospital Daisy right away went to Hailey's aid. Daisy sensed there was something wrong with Hailey's legs and feet and went to licking them better right away. She would forever lick Hailey if we let her.
Now since I am super paranoid to leave Hailey unattended even to go to the bathroom I had to enlist the help of my number one pup. I can have Hailey on the couch and ask Daisy to sit by her so Hailey doesn't attempt to roll off of the couch. Daisy will stay there until she is asked to move. Talk about HELPFUL!
Then when Hailey is at school Daisy keeps the bean bag warm until Hailey gets back, and Chloe can be found up in my bed.
Dogs are amazing! I got my husband a service dog after he returned from Iraq to help with mobility, assistance, and PTSD. If you ever need to, you can legally have your pup as a service dog for Hailey.ReplyDelete
That is adorable that Daisy is so attentive to Hailey! Dogs are so good at that unconditional love thing, aren't they? :)ReplyDelete
