Since my old German Shepherd SCOTT died last January, I could not recover from a feeling of emptiness and sadness. He was 13; an amazing dog, perfect in any sense for his breed. My 12 years old Chocolate Lab SHEEBO still misses him.
Walter and I immediately knew that we needed a new dog, and Sheebo would not feel lonely again. But we were undecided between buying a pure breed or adopting one. Walt told me to wait a little because we have to work all day and the task to train a new puppy is not an easy one.
After many months and everything going on at the new studio, I thought that it was the perfect opportunity to bring a pup home to start raising him. We are also re-arranging the house: rooms, furniture, etc. I said to Walt: "it's now or never"!
Isn't she the sweetest thing on earth? She is half Chinese Shar-Pei and I don't know what other half, but I couldn't care less. It was love at first sight!
She is so sweet, that we thought the name would fit perfect... my DAISY..
Our house is back to life again --well, HELLLLPP with the pi-pis and poo-poos!--; everything is happiness, new tricks, new pranks... We still miss our beautiful SCOTT, but the pain is a bit less.
One thing, though: because I have to keep an eye on her all day, she has to watch me quilting and sewing at my new studio in her new corner. She seems delighted...
