Those of you who have followed me for any time at all know I have a special sidekick, a companion, a pal, a fierce protector, a lover, a hunting and fishing partner, and a friend. Today I am not speaking of my Little Gal or H but of my Daisy, my Weimaraner.
Sweet Daisy and I clicked the very first time we met. H owned her first, and we were lucky enough to connect through him. It was no time at all before she was MY DOG. I would shoot a duck, and she would bring it back to me. Ha would shoot a duck, and she would bring it back to me. Haha! Maybe she was not the best at her job, but she sure took care of me!
I nearly lost her to a turned stomach the week after my Dad passed last spring. She knew I needed her then and made it through the surgery with flying colors. The vet complimented us on what wonderful shape she was in for her age. I’m pretty sure that’s due to our many adventures.
We had a lot of good times. Lots of hunting. Lots of hugs. Lots of hikes. Lots of camping trips. She was a chowhound by breed, and her belly constantly got her into trouble.
This Christmas was no different. Daisy mowed two mesh bags filled with gold foil-covered chocolate coins. The mesh bags held the foil in a ball and stopped up her stomach. She underwent a seven-hour surgery to remove the debris and clean up the stomach fluids that the vet had spilled into her body cavity. At almost 11 years old, it was just too much. She went into shock and passed away around 11:00 am December 27, 2012.
Rest in peace, sweet friend. You will be missed!

I am so sorry Mia. Lots of prayers headed your way. Rest in peace Daisy.
I am sorry for the loss of your loved one. My prayers are with you.
Mia my friend, my sympathies for the loss of a true friend, companion and family member. My admiration for your strength, love and composure. Bless you my friend.
Ah heck, Mia. I cried when I got the text earlier today, and now I’m crying again. I told Erica…she remembers Daisy from when she worked at WCO and said to tell you she is very sorry.
With heartfelt remorse…plz know I am here for you al!
Mia,,, I understand your feelings on this and I am with you in mindset. No words can be said to describe the loss of a friend.
Just know I understand.
Oh, Mia I know how you feel. My heart and love go out to you. It hurts so much. There has been so much in your life this year, just put it in God’s hands and he will help you through.
I am here for you,lea and Hank.
May she rest in Peace and her spirit be free.
Miss Mia, I’m so very, very sorry. I’m crying too, reading this, but laughing at the story of her bringing you your AND Hank’s ducks. Do this as much as you can-smile through the tears and pain by remembering the wonderful, happy times you all had together.You can also take comfort, Mia, in knowing you gave her the absolute BEST life a dog could EVER have! She was one lucky dog with an amazingly full life…no other person could have loved her more, or better, than you, Mia. Rest in peace, sweet Daisy girl…and Mia, my heart is with you and your family. Love, Laura Sansom…N.Texas
Thank you so much for your kind words. You may think that they aren’t much, but they help more than you know.
You of anyone knows what our four legged friends mean, and how much it hurts when they are gone. I am so broken hearted, but also thank God for letting me have her an extra eight months. They were wonderful!
Thank you so much Michael. I guess I’ll be making another awesome video here soon.
