Son had the leash laying on the ground hooked to Daisy. He was loading stuff to take with him so Daisy just picked up the end of the leash and escorted herself to the door. She cracks me up.
My Daisy came from the Three Sisters and A Brother Animal Rescue. They have pets that need homes. They need forever families that will love them and treat them with kindness and compassion. If you go to their facebook, you can see many of the animals that need homes.
One thing I love about this rescue is I know the person doing it and know how dedicated she is to finding good homes for these babies. She does not just hand them over to anyone. So, if you are looking for a good pet, contact this rescue and look at the pets.
Please get your pets from Rescues instead of buying from breeders. I know with Three Sisters and A Brother Rescue that the animals are taken good care of once they are rescued. They are checked by a vet, given shots, fixed and cleaned up. They are also checked for their temperament to be around other animals or children. Even if you have to pay a transport fee to get a pet that you seem to find an instant connect with, it is worth it.
The picture above shows Jill’s pets that the Rescue is named after.
Some days it can feel like you are in the twilight zone. I was laying here taking a little nap with Daisy laying beside me. I laid my dentures on a napkin on the little side table. I am not sure how long I slept but when I woke up…Daisy was sitting on my chest and looked like this:
I laid there looking at her with big eyes trying to get my brain to go in gear. I thought maybe I was still dreaming and was seeing some alien Daisy or that my meds were messing with me. And then I realized…she had my dentures in her mouth. I was afraid to yell for son. Almost afraid to move but I realized I had to before she broke them with here little teeth. They were laying stacked on top of each other just like when they go in your mouth and that is how she picked them up.
Meanwhile, still thinking I must be delusional or something, I gently got hold of her and took them out of her mouth. And then I started laughing and could not stop and she thought it was funny and started chasing her tail and jumping around. After I got over the silly giggles, I thought..”omg, that was close…and scary too”. And I took them to the bathroom for a good sterile soak. And now she keeps trying to get my mouth with kisses and I said..ohhh no mam..you are not getting them again….LOL….Some days…I tell ya.
Oh, and someone asked me why I got a dog back in NC…well the reason is..we are southerners and we needed a southern dog so that she would understand when we called “Daisy Mae, ya’ll come here now..ya hear” LOL
I wish people would know what a treasure a pet is for a chronically ill, disabled, senior or whatever..person. They provide entertainment, comfort and unconditional love. I am so blessed and so is son.
What are you my new mommy? The day we got her.
Come play with me.
look close and you will see my back warmer.

There are many people in the world that spend their time helping the animals in this world…both wild and domestic. I have always believed the quote that says “you can tell a country by how they treat their animals” and I go a step further to say “you can tell a person by how they treat animals”. (And people dating should think about that because someone who mistreats animals is not someone you want to marry.) Well, two of those people who are helping animals daily are John Bloom owner of JohnsC2CTransportLLC and Jill Lindsay who started the Three Sisters and A Brother Rescue in NC.
I am so blessed to have my Daisy because of Jill Lindsay who started Three Sisters and A Brother Rescue in North Carolina because her heart just could not stand seeing all the poor dogs that were being abandoned and euthanized and she has found homes for these animals. Thanks to Jill, my Daisy came from the Three Sisters and A Brother Rescue and she arranged for Daisy to come to us. Son and I are so blessed to have Daisy. From the moment she walked through our door, she knew she was home. I sit here typing with her laying on the bed beside me sleeping. She has had her breakfast, run around playing hard and is now sleeping again like puppies do.

Jill spends her days rescuing animals that need homes, finding people to sponsor them until they can be given to a forever home, having them checked by a vet, moving them to fosters homes and hunting their forever families. You have seen how much Jill invests in time and energy just by watching the story unfold of Daisy becoming our baby and traveling from NC to us out here in Colorado. Daisy got a chance at a forever home that she might not have gotten if Three Sisters and A Brother Rescue had not put in all the work they did to find her a home. Three Sisters and A Brother Rescue Facebook is located here:
You can tell a lot about people by the pets they own. This is Jill’s rescues that she owns and they are the Three Sisters and A Brother that the rescue is named after.
Jill is very vested in what she does and she does not just hand animals over to just anyone. She checks out the future family to make sure that the animal is going to a good home. The animals are checked by a vet, spayed or neutered to prevent further overpopulation of animals and given their shots before they go to their new homes. Three Sisters and A Brother Animal Rescue is a non-profit rescue and relies on donations. If anyone wants to help, you can send donations to https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=SBC9APZXTZ7QS .
Jill arranged for John at JohnsC2CTransportLLC to bring Daisy to us. John travels all over the country transporting animals to new homes and when we met him with our Daisy, you could see his love for animals. When we arrived at the pickup place for our Daisy, she was sitting in the front seat with John standing beside her. You could see that she really liked John and that made me feel good. I watched how he held her and talked to her because you can tell a lot about a person by how they treat the animals in their care.
I know many who do pet rescue and I can tell them and you that John is a very reliable transporter and one that I would trust to transport pets. He goes coast to coast and he and his crew love animals and are so good with them and treat them like they treat their own pets.
They take them out to exercise them, makes sure they are well fed and watered and take excellent care of them. Below are some pictures of John with Daisy when we got her.
John with Miss Riley that he was transporting. Best way to see what kind of animal lover he is…by seeing him with the animals.
John’s boys at home. Well loved you can tell.

I was thrilled today to get a response from the woman who helped us get our Jack. She just seemed to have a special connection to Jack and I wanted her to know that he had passed away. I say there thinking about how there will never be another Jack…another Wonder Dog. BUT, there is a Daisy and will always be room in our hearts for another dog. Daisy and Jack have a lot in common.
They both like to sleep under the covers.
They both love stuffed toys.
Today has been Daisy day all over. She is so sweet and so puppy and we are enjoying her greatly. She has learned how to jump onto the seat of my power chair and on to my hospital bed. And so, her day is spent running from my bed through the living room and into son’s office and back again. She gets lots of exercise that way. And she plays hard and then plops down exhausted like a puppy and falls dead asleep on my bed beside me here.
And here is Daisy contemplating where to run to next.
She is so proud she learned how to get up on my bed and she does not like to be left alone right now. She has been through so much in her short life and so we hope that we can give her back the comfort of being home that a pet should have. The comfort of knowing that they will not leave again or be taken somewhere else for she is home for good now.
And I will tell you this little story about last night. Son woke me up at about two in the morning and said “Mom, I think something is wrong with Daisy”. I sat straight up and asked him why and I noticed while he and I were talking and he was telling me how she would not go back to sleep and would not go potty, that Daisy was chasing her tail, running around shaking the dickens out of her blue dog and running up to son’s legs and doing that thing they do where they go down on their front elbows with their hiney up in the air wanting son to play. I looked up at son and smiled and said “Son, she is four months old. She is doing what babies do. Play with her a while, give her a snack and then put the leash on and take her back to bed. The leash will help you keep her in your bed”. And he did and she went back to sleep. I laughed as this morning he said he woke up once and she was licking his face.
And so, we have had a day filled with Daisy all over the place and all over our hearts. She walked into our house the first time like she had been living here. She ran from room to room, came back in the living room and found her bed there, found her toys, ran and pottied on the piddle papers and jumped in son’s recliner and made herself at home. After we bathed her, son held her wrapped up in a warm blanket to help her dry and they both fell asleep.
And to my special Jack who brought me such joy, devotion and love…how thankful we are to have had you in our lives. You were such a special baby from day one. My prayer was that I made up for the start you had and gave you a happy life and one where you felt secure and loved and I believe we did that. You will forever be carried in our hearts and we find ourselves seeing a lot of Jack’s spunk in our Daisy.
Wonder Dog-may you run the fields of heaven with happy abandon
