Thank you so much for reading this blog! To find out more about why I started this blog read the A Blog about a Dog post. But if you are nosy like me and just want to know more about me, my life and Daisy read on!
My husband Adam and I got married June 5, 2010 and moved to Fort Worth, TX. A new city for both of us! Before getting married we said that we wanted to wait a few years before having kids of our own, but no sooner had we gotten back from the honeymoon than I had baby fever! It was insane! (and could probably be attributed to the fact that I have basically been a stay at home wife all summer). Sooo, in an effort to quench my desire for a baby Adam suggested (off-handily, one Friday when he was home from work) that we should get a dog. This same random Friday we happened to drive by a satellite Fort Worth Humane Society location and went in. The dog for us was not at this location but the nice lady working directed us the the main location downtown. So, after putting it off for a few hours we decided to go take a look at what the other location had to offer..debating the whole way there if we were seriously about to adopt a dog. After all, we had said no dog for the first six months of marriage and at this point we hadn't even been married two!
We went in looking for a medium sized, house trained, adult dog and came out with a 16lb, 3 month old, untrained puppy!
Whoever said to get a dog BEFORE you have children was a genius! Who knew that taking care of a puppy would be almost (as in very close second) like taking care of a toddler...and Daisy is a really good puppy as far as puppies go. Daisy is super-sweet, pretty mild manner, and already kennel trained pup...but we have our work cut out for us!
And to answer the question: how did you pick her name? She came with it. The lady who brought her to the shelter named her Daisy and we decided to keep it. I like it for two reasons 1) I had no idea what she "looked like" name-wise so it was nice that we didn't have to pick something, and 2) it is a cute name that sounds enough like a real person name (after all she is my furry baby) without ever being a name that I would want to name my future child (if you have a daughter named Daisy...don't take this personally).
