|Daisy Dog the Wonder Dog|
Daisy lived to be about 12, and her passing hurt us a lot. But then we adopted Divot, a black lab / doberman mix who was a bundle of energy and joy. The previous owner gave her the name and was probably a golfer, because Divot loved to make divots in the back yard. She was sweet as could be, but Lord, was she a yipper. A Cambodian man named Song Ling saw her and remarked that he ate dogs in a refugee camp. "In Cambodia, dog number one," he declared. I told him that if he ate my dog he was number ten. He got the message.
Divot lived to be almost 17 and truly geriatric. When she finally passed on, we took a long break from owning pets, much as we dearly love animals. In time we adopted two cats, but that will be a topic for another day.
