Daisy's Birthday #3

We got Daisy when she was 3 months old.  An older couple had adopted her but found a Beagle puppy to be a little more wild than they were prepared for.  Jake bought her for me as our 1st Anniversary gift.  We made it through her puppy year(s), and love her a lot.

She hasn't learned a lot of tricks but she is excellent at routine.  She gets better and better and being off her leash in the yard, but not when the kids take her out.  She loves a good run.

For her birthday I fed her a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger from Wendy's.  She's always loved sniffing them.

Daisy is loyal and loving.  She's protective of me and the kids when anyone comes over until Jake tells her if the visitor is okay.  She does anything and everything Jake tells her to do.  She has a tendency to be deaf or blind when I tell her what to do.

She is a little bit of a scaredy-cat and hides whenever the kids play with loud toys, Jake uses loud toys, or there is general commotion.  Daisy hides under the table or curls up in my lap likes she's a little lap dog.

She loves her kids.  Daisy likes to jump on their beds to tell them goodnight.  She especially loves riding in the car to take them to or from school.

It took us a couple of tries to find the right dog for us but I'm so happy we have Daisy.
