Azaleas, Daisy, and Spring 2007
I have very old, very beautiful azaleas in my yard - Daisy looked amazing in front of them!
"While I had a dog growing up, Daisy was my first dog solely my own. She has been with me my entire adult life as I got her my senior year in college...she came over to chew on my shoe as I stood in the whelping box and I was instantly smitten. She was such a smart girl, but stubborn, particularly her first few years. Yet I learned so much working with her, patience above all and compassion, and together we worked through Advanced Obedience training and she earned a Companion Dog Certificate. And after puppyhood, this headstrong Labrador became the most gentle and peaceful of souls. Her intelligence and calm demeanor garnered praise from all who met her - she was that dog you saw at the coffee shop laying at the owner's feet, thumping her tail and people-watching but never being a disruption. Every person that met her, she adored, and they too were smitten with her. She was the sweetest soul with children, knowing in that way some dogs do that they are special and required the gentlest nuzzle and tiniest of kisses. She was my constant companion, through moving to South Carolina for a Master's Degree, a teaching job, and then to Columbia SC for my Ph.D. Through Daisy I learned to appreciate the outdoors, taking her as often as I could to the beach, various state parks, lakes, nature walks, and just walking around town. In her later years her arthritis restricted what she could do, so she was content to lay outside in the front yard and watch people and other dogs go by, or to take short jaunts around the neighborhood. So much of my existence, my daily routine, my lifestyle was centered around her or always conscious of her presence. Through everything, she was the most accepting, loyal, loving, sweet, and laid-back dog I have ever known.
It has always been "Michelle and Daisy" - and it is going to take a long time for me to figure out how to live my life without this beautiful soul."
