Christmas Foster Failure--a New Daisy


Hard to believe...my mom has let dozens of baby beagles slip through her hands and be adopted, even babies that were born at our house. Here was  this little 14 lb. girl from South Carolina, one day away from euthanasia...nobody would take her because she had heartworms.

So along came the H.A.N.D. Foundation--Homeless Animals Needing Doctors. They said--the only thing keeping this beautiful little creature from being adopted is a LIGHT CASE of heartworms??? Here's the money to treat it! And they transported her to Tennessee to my mom who offered to foster.

My mom has not had a foster failure since...ME. 5 years. So an animal has to be really really special to stay forever here in this house of beagles.

Even though it means I'm no longer the baby beagle of the pack (everyone else is over 10 years old here) still, this new Daisy is a good girl. She's figured out how to curl up on the hollow of my mom's left shoulder (so my mom can still type around her) and not interfere at all with where I sleep by my mom (left arm of the big chair).

We lost our 22 year old Daisy in April 2011 and my mom said the house was JUST NOT RIGHT without a Daisy in it.

So, we have a new Daisy. She is a wild girl, runs shrieking out the back door to chase any possible bunnies that are dumb enough to come in a beagle yard. (they do, believe it or not but we've never caught one).

This makes my mom very happy so I'm okay with it.

Welcome, little miss New Daisy!

I hope that Daisy gets a red and green collar to mark the great event. Are you celebrating with treats all around? Foster Failures are always a good thing, it means that the right dog has found the right home.

Oh, what a beautiful X-mas present for all of you.

We have here also dumb bunnies that keep waiting at our front yard when we are leaving for walk. And it is so fun to give them little chase.

You can never go wrong with a Daisy. Just ask the curly cat and the pink pit bull. :-)
