Daisy's Adventures in Wonderland

Once upon a time there was a dog named Daisy. Daisy loved her toys.
She LOVED to ride in the car, whichever car it may be.

She also loved to camp, and when she was little, she was still allowed to sleep in the tent. :)
She loved to hang out at the Logsden Store, as long as she was close to the people she loved.
She loved to hang out on the couch, even if she had to share it with the cat.
She would go after snowballs in the winter, and tennis balls in the summer. There was never a bad time to swim for her.
She was quite goofy sometimes.
And she always wondered where I was.
As she got older, fetch became the past time of choice.
Or just running around, having fun.
But she still loved to lay on the couch, especially when she could put her butt on my pillow. :)
She loved hanging out in the van, and didn't get stressed or mad when it would break down. She would just sit with me and let me know it was going to be okay, even if we didn't know where we were.
I don't know if she liked that I made her pose by beautiful flowers, but she always would, just to humor me.
Although she loved hanging out with us inside.....
I think she was the happiest outside!
She loved to play on the beach!
She still loved to play everyday, even as her face became grey.

And she always took the time to smell the flowers as we passed them.
She was a great hiking partner!
Did I mention she LOVED to camp??!
Because she did!!!
Really, she loved to be around people she loved, whatever they were doing.

After twelve years and seven months of playing, camping, running, and living, Daisy became very tired and couldn't play anymore.
Although I am very sad and miss her very much already, I am so happy that I got to spend those hefty twelve years with her! She was the best friend I could have ever asked for, and I can't thank her enough for showing me how much I could love someone. Jered and I love you very much Daisy, and we hope you enjoyed your adventures in wonderland.
The End
