Sad news

Today, around 1:45pm I made the difficult decision to have Daisy euthanized. She was diagnosed as having serious trouble with her liver, kidneys, bone marrow and diabetes. The odds of her living were slim, and her quality of life would have been poor. She was my companion, my little fur baby, and I loved her so much. She will be beyond greatly missed. This is the last posting to this blog. Thanks for being a part of our lives.

On hold...

Due to the severity of Daisy's condition, dotd is currently on hold. Daisy is currently hospitalized for liver failure and we're awaiting test results to determine the severity of the situation.
If you can, please take a moment to send love, prayers or good vibes her way. I really hope she can pull through and be back to her silly self.

My poor furbaby

So, there was an unfortunate mix up. Daisy's being picky about her food was an indication of illness not snobbery. I came home last night to find her dangerously dehydrated and rushed her to a 24 hour vet. He injected her with fluid and ran some tests and gave me a prescription for antibiotics. Here's to hoping she pulls through. :(

The Jenny Craig poster girl...

My darling baby used to be *quite* the chub. We never talked about it with her in the room or anything, but she was far from yoga-esque. Her extra padding made her even more graceful and slightly less clumsy. Now, thanks to the stress diet (and her recent wet food hunger strike) she's looking pretty trim. Luckily she still falls off of things so we have stuff to laugh at.

Does this look like the face of a snob?

Well, it is.
When Daisy got wet food to take her medicine with, she stopped wanting her dry food. I was pretty stubborn so I wouldn't let her have wet food (once her meds were done) until the dry food was gone. Then, we appeared to switch to a dry food she didn't enjoy, and the hunger strike began. So I bought new food that she used to enjoy - same result. I caved and gave her wet food (but it was a generic kind from extra foods) and she refused once more. I thought maybe she was just lazy, since she'd barely left my bed. I brought her breakfast in bed (kibbles) to see if she'd eat them... She ate one measly kibble. Crap.
In a panic, I go back and buy some wet food she had with her meds and she's been happily gobbling it up. 2 months ago she didn't know what wet food *was* and now she's particular about brand?! Also, she's more stubborn than me... That's a sad and pathetic realization. :)

Sittin' Pretty

You wouldn't think this innocent face is capable of lethal clawage or biteage disguised as loving affection...
But that's her evil plan.

Happy Birthday Sleepy Daisy... up before your party tonight.

Oh, and Happy Valentine's to everyone else.

I'm not sure why, but when I see this picture I expect to hear her bark like a dog...

Also, this morning I woke to her using my head as a springboard to climb onto the window ledge above me. Needless to say I was unimpressed... Also, I'm reconsidering the effort I've made to fatten her back up again.

Feeling rough...

...After a rowdy night of Aquafina 10 cal water. (Fuji apple flavour if you're curious)

Ugh, make it stop!

And by 'it' she means being held on her back and snuggled like a baby. I know she hates it and still, I can't help myself. :)

What Mommy wishes she were doing right now...

Note: this was taken a week or two ago, and the bald patch you can see (where the Vet shaved her) has started to grow in.

Catalogue shopping

Who doesn't enjoy the Ikea catalogue, really?
We've been moving stuff around at home and have moved our table into the craft room. Daisy was trying to help me find a new one, but our tastes (budgets) differ...

The artsy shot

If only I had an iphone, this could've been one of those "hipstamatic" shots.

Daisy's having a nap to save up ALL her energy to say:
"Happy Birthday Auntie Airyanna!!!"
She's *quite* the party animal, you know. (Daisy I mean...)

The too close close up

I find this pose funny because if she was sitting at a laptop with a built in webcam, this might be a pic she'd take of herself to put on facebook.

Note: Daisy would never have facebook because she doesn't get along with anyone to have 'friends'.

A view from below

Miss Daisy likes to climb up on me and knead away until she's cozy. This is what it looks like from my perspective. (From her perspective you'd see me wincing as her nails gouge my skin...)

Smooches and love chomps

The pic itself is a year old, bit regular kisses and love chomps are a daily occurence Chez Daisy...

This right here, is my favourite part of Daisy... Well next to her big green eyes I guess. It's this tuft of fur behind her ear that feels rabbbit-y soft and is so fun to pet... Until she gets annoyed and stalks off out of reach.

"I have no interest in this!"

She bores easily with Gilmore Girls. I'm not sure if the dialogue's too fast or it's too much like living with me and Mandy, but she's not a fan...

Dark NOM-ing

It's hard to see but in this pic, Daisy's eating orange... Yup, orange. My little vegetable fiend is broadening her taste to include fruit.

Friends? Unlikely...

She liked this guy for all of 5 minutes. I haven't seen him since.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you Catnip Dog... You were a fine stuffy.
