Well, we have had our girl for 5 days now and as you can see she has fit in just beautifully. We have given her a new name. Dixie is now Daisy. I just really like the name and thought if she is having a new start she might has well have a new name. She already comes to it because it is pretty close sounding. I actually wanted to call our next female dog Ophelia but my husband never would have gotten it right so Daisy it is which means "white flower".

I can usually only get pictures of Daisy on the fly now. She runs all over the farm with Rufus and on her own. She is very good at coming when she is called and knows what the word NO means, thank you Kelly for that.

As you know our girl is a Great Pyrenees and Retriever cross. Her coat is definately Pyrenees and quite thick. The weather here as been unusually hot for May and poor Daisy is feeling it. Since she is going to be spayed in a week I wanted to get her coat trimmed down.

The wonderful Kelly came to the rescue. Kelly is the lovely lady who brought Daisy to us through RESCUE DOGS MATCH. She has know Daisy most of her doggy life and has taken care of her. Thanks to her Daisy is a dream to walk on a lead and knows the meaning of the word NO. Kelly was nice enough to come out this morning and give Daisy a new hairdo. At first she was a little leary of the sound of the clippers but then she settled down. Knowing Kelly was doing the clipping really helped her. I think she looks lovely. Great job Kelly, I can't thank you enough and neither can Daisy.

Rufus thought she looked pretty good too. He likes it because it is easier to grab her now when they play. It was not long that they were off and running.

Daisy and Rufus have been running around likes puppies this afternoon. Without that bag of fur she was carrying ( and yes, it was a bag of fur) she is so fast that Rufus has trouble catching her. It is nice seeing Daisy being a puppy after all she is only 1 1/2 years old.

Thank you for my new hairdo Kelly....hugs Daisy.
