THINGS YOU LOVE
4 December 2007
As I have for the past several years, I'm doing "Holidailies" again, posting a journal entry a day in the month of December. Duhhh...like this is a stretch for me!
I do like Holidailies, though, for inspiration and for introduction to new journals. Today I encountered MissMeliss: Escribtion, who starts her month with inspiration from another blogger. She writes
Meg of MegFowler.com is all about sharing the love, so she’s created this Love List. Yes, it’s a meme. Memes are fun. .... Do share. But credit Meg as the Source.
MissMeliss made her love list mostly
seasonal, so I will too, though not entirely. (I see
Mary has done it too, which makes

Speaking of Daisy...she's been here a
week now. I finally got her "story". Megan says, "An officer
went to her house for a welfare check, as requested by a neighbor. She found
that mom had died and the family was bottle feeding 2 pups, using cow's
milk. She informed them how to care for them and got
So that's Daisy's story. This is the cuddliest puppy ever. She will sleep all day in my arms, if I let her. She seems quite intelligent and is a quick learner. She's also trying to make friends with Sheila and Lizzie.
The two dogs are usually better with singleton puppies than with litters, but it's going to take awhile before they really befriend her. She has those sharp little teeth and is all mouth right now, though not strong enough to start tearing up the furniture. But teeth sharp enough to hurt, so I'm not surprised when one of the older dogs snaps at her. I'm trying to stay out of dog-puppy interactions because Daisy has to learn and the older dogs seem to know intuitively not to hurt her, but just to scare her.
Just a few minutes ago, for example, she must
have done something to Sheila--perhaps just invaded her space, since Sheila
was sleeping under my desk and Daisy tiptoed in. All of a sudden I heard yelping from
Daisy. My instinct is to pick her up, but I didn't because Lizzie came
running in and there was Daisy between the two big dogs, and both of them
sniffing her and wagging tails. It was probably a good lesson for her.
