AUGUST: KATY & DAISY
My name is Daisy and the first year of my life wasn’t that great. I was kept in a kennel, in a shed, outside, by myself. Once I was ready to have babies, I was put on Craigslist to be sold to the highest bidder.
Then Rescue a Golden of AZ came and got me, and brought me to my family.
I have an older sister named Katy, but we look and act like twins. I was only 46 pounds when I came home a few years ago, and when I got home they had food out for me all the time. I gained almost 20 pounds in six months – and now I look hot!
At first it was kind of weird, because I was allowed to roam around the house and I didn’t have to go into a cage. My mom and dad tried to convince me that if I stopped moving or pacing I wasn’t going to be put in a cage. My sister Katy taught me how to chill out and relax. I love doing whatever Katy is doing.
Katy and I have four doggie beds, multiple couches, and mommy and daddy beds to sleep on. I usually find out where Katy is sleeping, and then I lay down on top of her. Katy and I have about 50 tennis balls at our house, but I only like to play with the tennis ball Katy has. When Katy is interested in something in our backyard, I am too. Being a younger sister is awesome.
During the last year mommy thought daddy and I needed to practice better manners, so she sent us to school. I learned two things. 1. I don’t like the cats at PetSmart. 2. I love the birds at PetSmart – and I think they like me too from the way they reacted when I lunged at them.
Overall I am one lucky girl. Thank you to all of the Rescue a Golden volunteers for everything you do.
Daisy, Katy & Kristi Rivera
