I will always believe Daisy was meant to be in my life. I was on my way home one late afternoon when I deiced to turn down a side street. A couple of blocks later I had to slow down for a police car. As I passed by I saw someone holding a dog down in yard, the dog had her head raised and we made eye contact. Something about her stuck in my head all night. I decided to call vet offices the next morning to find out if the dog had been brought in. The second one I called had her and I was told they were getting ready to put her to sleep. I told them not to and I left work and went to the vet's. I paid the bills and took the dog to a specialist to have surgery, she needed a pin in her leg. After all of that was over I took Daisy home. After she healed she was a bundle of energy and loved to play. I felt bad because I did not have a fenced in yard so I walked her a lot. She did get to play with the neighbor's dog and they had a lot of fun. I started looking for a house and found one with a big fenced in back yard for her to run and play in. She loved the yard and I would run in circles around me. I decided to look for a companion so she would have a friend while I was at work. I was in petsmart and a dog followed me all over the store, I paid for him and Daisy had a friend. They played and chased each other in the yard and in the house. Daisy slept next to me every night from the time I took her home. She had to be in the same room with me and followed me everywhere. When I sat down in the recliner she would walk along the back of the couch and lay on the arm rest to be close to me. When I would try to tie my shoes she was always licking my hands. Sometimes I would dance in front of her and she would bark and run around me. She loved to lay on the back of the couch and look out the windows all day. I tinted them to protect her eyes, I did not want her to have problems when she got older. The last couple of years Daisy started walking slower and did not play as much.  One day she started limping on her font leg and I rushed her to the vet. They told me she had arthritis in her front legs and put her on a pain pill. That helped a lot and she was kind of back to her old self. I would pick her up and carry her down the stairs to the back yard every time I would take them out. I did not want her doing that on her own, she would always give me a kiss on the cheek when I would pick her up. During this time I built her a ramp to use to get on the couch and the bed. She would run up and down them all day long. A few month ago she fell off of the couch and hurt her back, she would no longer stand on her back legs. I rushed her to the vet and found out she had a disc problem. I was going to take her to have an MRI but when they did the blood test they found out her kidney's had stopped working. I loved her so much and would have spent every dime I have on her but they said nothing could be done. I lost her that day and I have felt so broken. I always knew Daisy loved me and I loved her. She was such a good dog and in the 14 years I had her she never growled at me or the vet. She was always wagging her tail and loved getting attention from me. She was always so happy when I would get home barking and yelping. There is so much more to Daisy then what I can type on here. Since she passed away I have seen her in her dog bed, well it was like a ghost image. I have awaken to find her siting at the foot of the bed watching me sleep, she would fade away. One night when I was getting ready for bed I heard knocking at the door, no one was there. I have heard her walking around the house at night. I have also dreamed about her. I know she is still with me, watching over me. She was so important to me and I would have done anything in the world for her. She would have been put to sleep 14 years ago if I had not seen her or called the vets. I could have turned down any other street or been a little earlier or later. I do believe she was meant to be with me. I miss her so very much, my life will never be the same. I thought about getting another dog and came close but something stopped me. I never went in search of a dog before, they always found me. There was just something so special about Daisy and her story. If another dog is meant to be with me they will find me or something special will happen that puts them in my life. Am I crazy to think that? I have cried so much over Daisy. I talk to her several times a day. Her ashes are on a shelf beside my bed with several of her pictures. I do believe that when my time here is over she will be waiting on me. All of the times I looked in her eyes and saw how she looked me I just can't believe anything else.

If I was a dog I would want you for my owner!  I believe wholeheartedly that you and Daisy were meant to be together, just like my husband George and I (I lost him 15 years ago) and my Arlie, whom I lost a year ago 8/16/19.  Sometimes you just know. 

When you feel ready, would you share a picture of your Daisy?  I'm so glad you saved her life and gave her another 14 years!  How sad that they sometimes euthanize just because there's no one on the other end to pay the bill.  Of a perfectly wonderful dog.  :(

I hope this video brings you some comfort and peace...

Here's my Arlie, his smile said it all to me!

No, you are not crazy!  I believe that way too and I looked and looked for another dog and nothing worked, I got six dog bites in a year and went through hell.  Then one day my son brought me a puppy, conceived when Arlie died, born on my birthday.  He's nothing like Arlie, small instead of huge, doesn't do Husky talk like Arlie, doesn't have Arlie's incredible goofiness & making up games, but he's sweet and loving, and adorable and he's wormed his way into my heart!

Thank you

I am attaching two pictures of Daisy. It is so hard to look at her pictures now, I miss her so much. Both of these photo's were taken after I had her groomed. Her hair was longer but not as long as an Eskimo, I am not sure what her mix was, I wish I had her DNA checked. Whatever she was mixed with made her a wonderful and special companion. I had such a special bond with her, she always looked at me like in these pictures. I am not sure if I can get another dog after this. Part of me wants to but when I get close I stop myself. I would give anything in this world to have another Daisy and I think that is why I stop myself. There will never be another Daisy. When I would try to put on shoes and tie them I would have to keep pushing her away because she would not stop licking my hands. She would use her nose to open door, she had to be with me all of the time. There was so much about her. I was so scared for her on her last day, the not knowing what was going to happen to her and the after. I just completely broke down, it was the hardest thing I have ever been through. I went though a lot in the 14 years I had her but nothing effected me like her death. I worried about her so much and I still do. She had separation anxiety when I had to leave her, sometimes it gave her bad diarrhea. I just hurts so much because I can't pick her up anymore. I just pray she is okay and in a good place. I never wanted anything bad to happen to her. I just hope she remembers who I am and that I am still here for her. If I had called the vet's an hour later than what I did I would have never had this wonderful little soul in my life. I would have missed out on so much.

Arlie was a pretty dog.  I am also afraid that if I did get another dog it would not work out. I just don't know if I am up to trying. I looked at rescues but just not knowing what I am getting into with me. I have been so lucky with the last four, I never had a bad one. None of my rescued dogs ever growled at me or the vet. I thought about a puppy but they all get picked up so quick these days. There are so many people out there trying to scam someone, so I don't trust anyone on facebook. Maybe one will come along like the others did.

Daisy is such a sweetie, what beautiful eyes. She loved you so much, you can tell. I am so so sorry for your loss. It is so painful, indescribable at times. 

I lost a cat over 3 years ago, still miss him. I've healed mostly. Hang in there. There will never be another Daisy. But some time, you might find another needy pet who needs love and a home.

Awe, Daisy’s face how sweet. And, there’s Arlie smiling as always and Kodie is a cutie. I miss my scooter everyday. Such wonderful loving animals and so much pain to manage after. It’s really hard.

Daisy is so sweet and beautiful!  Thank you for sharing with us, I'm sorry if I caused you pain with my request.  So much of what you post I relate to because my bond was so tight with Arlie and he also had separation anxiety, maybe that factored into his lifelong Colitis.  I've had ten dogs in my life, all wonderful in their own ways but I was closest by far with Arlie, he was just so perfect for me!  But I've been very surprised about how attached I've gotten to Kodie too, I've had him for ten months now.  I didn't think I could handle a puppy but he's so sweet, I'm glad I got him.  I had horrid experiences with rescues this last year, I'm thankful my son found Kodie for me, even though I got some judgment from going to a breeder.  My hands are ruined because of one of the dogs and now I need surgery on both of them, severely, and have no idea how I'll do recovery in the winter time on my own with snow to shovel and fires to build!  I'm scared.

We were so lucky to get them for the time we did.

Hi, I have also been a little worried about getting a rescue. It is so hard to tell what you are getting into. I have heard a few bad stories about dogs biting someone for no reason. I am just waiting to see what happens. Daisy was very much one in a million. You request did not cause me pain, it's just difficult to look at her pictures.. I have several in my bedroom. She did not like having her picture taken, I think the click scared her. I could not use a flash because I think that reminded her of lightening and she was scared of storms. I glad you had Arlie in your life. It makes a difference when the dog really clicks with you. I am glad the new one is working out.

KayC, you need surgery on your hands because of one of the dogs? How come? Lots of bitting? My goodness you’ve been through a lot. I hope everyone can have some peaceful days. I am just praying for one peaceful day to rest my mind. I think about baby scooter 24/7. I even wake myself up crying saying her name. It is so hard. How do you go on with your life without them when they took up such a big part of your heart and day. I must have spoken to Scooter a lot because the silence now is so obvious. She was such a loving companion. I miss her every second.

Hi, I also think about Daisy 24/7. Several times a day I put my hand on the box with her ashes and hold her dog collar in the other one and I talk to her. It is something I have to do because I want her to hear me. She wore the same collar her whole life and I put it on the pillow next to me at night, where she used to sleep. I have to believe that Daisy knows how I feel and how much I miss her.  There have been little things that have happened that lets me know she is still around. I am not sure if I will ever get over her.

I got bit four times by Jackson, a dog I adopted from a rescue, first day, I was scared to touch him after that!  Yet they left him with me for TWO DAYS afterwards!  I can't have a dog I can't take care of or trust.  They lied to me, start to finish!  After they got him back they put him back up on line, stating he was good with kids and dogs!  When my neighbor confronted their lies they blocked her.  Loved Again Pets, do not go through them!

I walked Joe, a neighbor's chow for ten months.  We developed a bond although he didn't have much personality (esp. following Arlie) and he's deaf and going blind.  But I loved him and he loved me.  They even offered me him, but he bit me early on, and again, I can't have a dog I can't care for and trust.  At the beginning of Covid, early March, he yanked on my right hand 90 degrees, super hard, jerking it, it severed my nerves, and I'm in constant pain, no relief, and haven't been able to get any help for it "because of Covid," it seems the orthopedic doctors use this as an excuse to not work anymore.  I went through the nerve conduction study months ago and it said both hands need surgery severely, and he told me it's past the point of doing anything else, it's that severe.  The left hand, Joe bit me again, chomping the left side and the right side together, six puncture wounds, damaged the bones.  The owner had lied to me about his being up on his shots, they've never taken him to the vet.  He has bad ear infections and they do nothing.  She was a dog trainer before she had kids.  ???  They never brush him, he has mats.  I feel sorry for him.  

Joe got loose last week and I was running after him to get him back home, I worry about him because he wouldn't hear/see a car coming.  I tripped and fell on the pavement, landing on my cheekbone, I posted the picture somewhere.  My son said Joe and my relationship is cursed, every time I get hurt, he's involved.  But I love him.  I've stayed away for the most part, since he bit me, but it breaks my heart and he looks so forlorn when Kodie and I walk by.  I have no doubt he loves me and doesn't understand why I don't come for him anymore.  I think he bit me because he's in pain.  I got him on CBD oil, giving his owner several bottles, and it seemed to help his arthritic pain.  I hope they continue giving it to him.

Hi, I have also been a little worried about getting a rescue. It is so hard to tell what you are getting into. I have heard a few bad stories about dogs biting someone for no reason.

I have rescued many dogs, this year is the first time I encountered such issues and largely because I was lied to about their situations.  Had I been given the true scoop I would not have adopted or walked these two dogs to start with.  It broke my heart both times.  That's why my son went to a breeder and got a puppy, he got to meet the parents and see their situation firsthand, and the breeder truly loved and cared for the puppies and had a great place for them.  Rescuing an abused dog can have ramifications for life.  I adopted Lucky over 20 years ago, a beautiful, sweet, trained two year old Whippet.  She had been abused badly in her first home.  She was not vicious at all, she was wonderful and obedient, but scared of her own shadow.  She lived to 14, but I never was able to get her to relax...she didn't feel free to roam the house, and always looked for permission for anything, even to eat or enter the house!  She had been over trained by the second owner.  The third owner gave her up for seemingly no reason.  I can't imagine giving up on her, she was such a good girl.  I know they all need and deserve homes but the ones who are vicious need professional help for them and their adopters, something not available in my area.  I'd have to make a seven hour trip for such classes and just can't do it, esp. in the winter.

I am really sorry all of that happened to you. That is a lot to go through and knowing all you are trying to do is help. I my searching I have found it hard to trust what I am told. I would like to find a young one that has been damaged by someone else's abuse. I have rescued all of the dogs that have been in my life. All of them were so good and I never had to worry about them. Now with the way the internet is I am afraid to trust anyone, there are way too many scammers. I bought CBD oil for Daisy but she did not like it, I thought maybe I could use that instead of her pain pill. Covid has really caused a lot of problems. You should be able to have surgery, my sister just had hip replacement surgery. A lot of it is up to the practice, I know a bunch or hurting for money now. I hope things get better for you. Keith

Thank you!

I mixed Arlie's CBD oil into his homemade food, he was a huge dog so had a large quantity (1 c homemade & 1 c dry two times/day) so it was disguised pretty well, I added treats to it like sausage or eggs  as I had to entice him to eat when he had cancer.  Didn't have that problem beforehand but he didn't need the CBD beforehand either.

I wish you could have had little Jackson, he was perfect except for the biting, it broke my heart to have to return him but I have a lot of scar tissue in my hand because of it!  They never even apologized.  I know they lied because I got it documented before they deleted it.

The Slocum Clinic is the large best orthopedic doctors in the county, I have to go where I'm sent as I'm on an HMO.  I'm angry with the 50% of their staff that refuse to work this year!  How many of us can afford to just not work because of COVID?!  How caring is that?  Seems it breaks their Hippocratic Oath, "First Do No Harm."  It's harmed me greatly by their refusal to do their job.

Hi,

   You would think places would need to stay in business to pay bills. I think most of the offices here are open. I know one does a covid test and sends you home to wait on results.. The person had to wait 3 days and could not leave the house. 

   Looking at adopt a pet and pet finder makes me depressed. There are so many dogs out there looking for a home, it seems a lot of pit bulls. I found one I wanted but then I saw where they have to be the only dog in the house. I take mine to my sisters, she has 5 rescued Shih Tzu's. I have to get one that is okay around other dogs and small ones at that. 

   I found a puppy I would like to get but I keep stopping myself. I feel like getting one would help me but I get wishy washy. I don't know what is wrong with me. Daisy was just so important to me. I know she will never be replaced in my heart. Maybe I just need to get it and everything will turn out okay. I just think about Daisy so much and all of the things I should have done. Maybe a puppy would help me with that. I just question everything until I talk myself out of it. Was it easy for you to get another dog?

Another thing I am worried about is getting another dog is going to diminish my memories of Daisy. I know that is probably crazy because I loved her so much and nothing should effect her memories. I just have so many mixed emotions about getting another one.

There was nothing easy about it!  My son brought me this puppy, he is a Klee Kai and they cost $3,500 so I thought it out of the question.  Usually you have to be on a waiting list for a year and have them flown into your state, sight unseen then drive 3 1/2 hours up to the airport to get them, Lord knows the flight costs.  My son found one 2 miles from him for $800 and got to meet the breeder and the mom and dad, and see it's environment, see it wasn't a puppy mill, it was his first time breeding them.  This little puppy has been a godsend!  Conceived when Arlie died, born on my birthday.  When my son sent me the pictures d& video and asked me to choose which one, the name Kodie popped into my head when I saw him.  Unbeknownst to me, the breeder had given him the name Kobie, but when my son stopped at Petsmart on the way to my house (I live two hours from him) he bought a collar and tag.  He came to my house and tossed the paperwork down and the tag, and said, "Sorry about the name, I mistyped it."  It said Kodie. 

Kodie is not my Arlie, but he has wormed his way into my heart.  He's very loving and sweet and adorable.  I didn't think I'd be able to handle a puppy at my age, but it hasn't been as much effort as I'd thought.  He's actually very self-entertaining.  I throw the ball for him and walk him twice a day and he likes to cuddle with me at night.  I provide a lot of toys and a fresh 2-litre bottle for him to chew on every few days (I found it's a lot cheaper than throwing away new toys he chews up in five minutes).  He's got the sweetest face and eyes.  It used to sting when people would constantly tell me how adorable he was but didn't say that about Arlie, but people seem to say that about little dogs and like his markings.  I loved everything about Arlie, he was not only gorgeous but I loved his personality better than any dog I've ever met, and he was so smart and always smiling.  He was an amazing communicator and we understood each other perfectly.  I've never met a dog so smart!  He was also extremely considerate.  I could look at him for hours.  I guess other people didn't see what I saw but he will always be my soulmate in a dog.

The two are not comparable.  Kodie gives me kisses and I can't imagine life without him now.  I don't know how I'd have survived this social isolation without him with me in it.  I will always love and miss my Arlie.

That will NEVER happen!  You can love a new one even while grieving your Daisy.  I still talk to Arlie, I tell him I wish he could have met his little brother, they would have loved each other and he could have taught him a thing or two.  I tell him how much I love him and miss him and would give anything to hear his Husky talk and watch him smile once again.  I miss holding him.  He was and always will be my little boy, even if he did get up to 140.

your Arlie sounds a lot of Daisy. Daisy was also so smart and considerate. There was so much about her that was so good. She wagged her tail all of the time and and loved to go on rides. Everything with Daisy just clicked with me when I got her. I never questioned rescuing her and spending the money on her surgery. I can not find a dog like the one I want around here, the puppy I would like to get is 6 hours away.  I also looked at  Klee Kai, I was afraid they were too hyper. I found a Klee Kai mixed with an ESkimo I wanted but they were 12 hours away. I wasn't sure about getting one sight unseen. I would like to pick the puppy up and hold it before I would say that is the one, the problem is they sell so quick you do not get that option. I am not even sure about doing the 6 hour drive to get the one I like. Looking at a picture is so different than actually seeing it in person. Thank you for answering me and helping me with my grief, it has been so difficult.

Good evening everybody. I hope you guys are doing a little bit better. KayC hows your cheek? It sure is swollen in your pic. I saw the pic of Daisy and of course another Arlie pic. He’s always smiling! If that is not a dog smiling then I don’t what is! You’re right Daisy had warm living eyes. KayC I love little Kodie, he’s so sweet. Well, baby scooter pushed the cry button again. The crying is shorter now but, just as intense. Before I could cry hard for hours but, now it’s quick. I have been looking at puppy and kitty pics today. I see some really cute dogs and sweet kittens but, I feel torn. I’ve never had a dog. Only scooter for those 17 beautiful years. Cat or dog? Hmm? Because I have such severe depression and anxiety, which would be a good comport animal? I read a lot about how caring for a cat is much different then caring for a dog. I love them both but, not sure how you care for a dog? I got the cat care down pat. Any thoughts guys?

I have also been looking at adopting another dog but at the last minute I back out. There is a puppy I would like to get but I am just not sure if I am ready. A part of me says yes get one but then I think about it and back out. I guess I am just not ready. I think cats are more independent then a dog. You have to take dogs out in the yard to use the bathroom and to walk them. They need more attention then a cat does. Well, at least the cats I have been around. You can go off and leave a cat all day and not worry about it. I bought a house 2 minutes from work so I could come home every day to check on the dogs and walk them. I guess it's up to how much time you have and want to devote to a pet.  I also still cry over Daisy but it's not as bad as it was a month ago. I miss her so much.

My Klee Kai is not at all hyper.  He's active like all puppies are, but I'm 68 and am able to keep up with him just fine.  I would say 6 or even 12 hours isn't too far to go for if you find "the one."  I knew I had to have Arlie the moment I saw his picture in the paper.  I never regretted it.  Not even when he chewed all my furniture that first year!  And all of the other things he chewed.  I still have it, I haven't been able to get rid of it.  I did replace the trim on my house he chewed.  ;)

It's personal preference, I love both.  For me personally, my dogs have been better companions as they seem to care more about your feelings than cats but cats are so individual, I've never had two alike, so hard to speak generally.  My King George was a wonderful lap cat and my greeter, I miss him still (it's been 14 years).  Miss Mocha was the sweetest cat in the world but slept alot.  Chappy was very loving, used to sleep curled around my neck.  Kitty was cantankerous and demanding but I loved her and understood her.  I've had 15 cats and 10 dogs in my lifetime.  Golden Retrievers make wonderful companions (Arlie was Husky & Golden Retriever, a perfect mix for me!) as they're gentle and loyal, make great service dogs.  A friend of mine had one that lived to be 15, she took him around to nursing homes.

That is a nice picture, I am really sorry he had to go through that.  If I kissed Daisy's cheek she would close her eyes and smile. I would do that every morning when I picked her up to carry her outside. I tried to take pictures of Daisy when she was smiling but as soon as she saw me turn my phone to her or a camera she would stop. She would lay her ears back and look scared. Any kind of beeping or things like that would scare her, she had that smoke alarm beep when the battery was going out. I am attaching a picture of Daisy watching me out the front door when I was working in the yard. she would sit there the whole time watching to see what I was doing, Fonzie is standing next to her.

I was contacted by a woman last night with a puppy she wants to rehome. She recently got a divorce and the puppy has been crated all day while she is at work. She is home for a short time then goes to sit with an elderly woman at night. The puppy is around 12 weeks old and never hardly gets any attention or just time out of the crate. She said it is an Mini Australian Shepard mix. I just think about Daisy too much and I am not sure I am ready. Maybe if I did get the puppy it would help me, I am not sure. I feel bad for the puppy. I think this has bee going on since she got it. All of the dogs I have rescued have been around a year old or more. I would have to drive around 4 hours to get the puppy and need to make up my mind by this afternoon.

Awwwe, Daisy’s sweet face. DKO, you loved Daisy and still do. Daisy loved you and still does. Love never dies. You carry all that love you and Daisy have in your heart. You can put your hand over your heart and that’s where she is. She’s apart of you to be close to you as you journey through life. You will know when the time comes. I put my hand over my heart and asked baby scooter if she would be ok getting another and I felt she said yes. She doesn’t want me to keep suffering and left like this when she gave me 17 years of love.
