5/29/07 -  From Daisy's former foster Mom - I attended at party at Daisy's new home on Monday.  Daisy is doing really well and looks good.  She remembered me :o)) and was so excited that I couldn't get out of her sight.  The family just loves her and the youngest no longer has a fear of dogs.  She loves daisy.  Daisy is mainly attached to Anntonette, as she is home with her all the time , she said Daisy turned into the perfect little girl and couldn't thank me enough for doing such a good job with her .Her eyes looked really good,  I couldn't get over them.  I had a wonderful time seeing my baby again.

3/19/07 - Daisy has been adopted.
Daisy has left her foster home , she is heading home to Saratoga Co.to her forever home ,she jumped right up in Anntonette's suv , all happy for the ride home.

2/27/07 - Daisy's stay has finally come, she is going to her forever home and it's in Saratoga Co..Upstate NY. There is a wonderful family waiting for her with two lovely beautiful girls whom fell in love with daisy on there visit .Daisy did very well with the children that day and I have no doubts in my mind that this is the perfect family for daisy .Daisy is going to get so spoiled there ,plenty of attention and the love and care she deserves. I will miss her dearly ,I'm sure I'll have tears that day but I know deep in my heart ,daisy will be well taken care of and she
deserves this as she really is such a sweet &gentle girl .I can't describe how wonderful this makes me feel, it can only be felt in the heart .  The family is planning on picking her up around the 16th of March as Mom is away until than and in the meantime they are planning on going shopping for daisy so her home is waiting for her .

2/25/07 - Daisy is pending adoption

2/17/07 - Another daisy update.  Daisy is enjoying her stay in upstate NY, even with all the snow we had on Valentine Day.  She and Bella ,looked like two rabbit's hopping &jumping around in the snow but by Thursday with
total snowfall of 20 inches the dogs were lost, they didn't know where to go to the bathroom until a path was cleared and that's where it ended up and Daisy got a little too brave and journey into the mound of snow
in backyard and got stuck, I had to lift her out and ever since that, she's not so brave now ... ;).  She does enjoy playing in the snow and not too mention she enjoys eating it.  Daisy is doing much better with the basic commands, she will sit & come and she is getting better with stay &down.
From Daisy:  My foster mommy got some really good PICS of me, as you can see, I'm a very sweet & loveable girl , mommy said, I don't have a bad bone in my body and I am deserving of a good home.  Till than , check back for more of my updates .

 

1/31/07 - I want to talk a little in regard to Daisy's eyes.  She has a condition called KERATOCONJUNCTIVITIS SICCA (KCS)  KNOWN AS DRY EYE.  Diagnosis of KCS begins with visual inspection.  In advanced cases, the eye or eyes can be observed with a dry and chronically reddened appearance.  However, early to mid staged cases of KCS can look very much like allergic or infectious conjunctivitis.  Diagnosis is confirmed by a painless tear strip test that is done right in the examination room called a Schirmir Tear Test. It is also recommended performing a fluorescent stain of the cornea to make certain that there are no secondary corneal ulcers.  Daisy hasn't had this part done.  Daisy continues with her eye ointment & drops, twice daily and the constant cleaning of the mucus from the eye, as much as possible. This is a very important part of a daily routine for Daisy, she need and requires this for her eyes.  So foster mommy and I have a system now, I used to fight her on the cleaning of my eyes, but mommy wins now.  She will have me get up on couch and sit while she cleans & medicates my eyes. I can't believe just how easy this has come to cleaning her eyes, she has gone from a bull to an angel and so patient. Daisy is on optimmune ,which has the cyclosporine in it ,this is pretty expensive if purchased from a vet, but I have done some searching on internet and this can be purchased for half the price a vet would charge you.  She also is on a liquid eye drop and I'm also in the process of searching for the cost of this eye drop, I'm sure this as well can be purchased for half the cost. Daisy's eyes have not worsened, though I do think she should have the tear strip test again. The last test she had was on 11/28/06, right eye @ a 10 & left eye @ a 15, which is very good and within the normal range. Daisy is a SWEET GIRL & VERY LOVEABLE. All she needs for now is a good home and someone to love and take care of all her needs.

1/22/07 - Daisy is doing well , not much has changed since my last update.  I am spayed now and recovered quickly, though when it came time to take my stitches out , I wanted no part of going in the back room where they
caged me after surgery so I allowed the vet to remove my stitches in the hallway.  (Daisy has a fear of kennel cages but not people nor small children.)  I know some of the basic commands but I think my foster mommy needs to work more with me on this, I will sit &come when you call me, I will give the paw now and then, but I will not beg for food like Bella does.  Daisy shows no sign of food aggression, she and my other female eat side by side, nor no toy aggression.  Daisy has learned to allow me to treat her eyes, twice a day.  For the longest time it was always
a battle,  but now she just sit still and allows it.   I think she finally realized it was a losing battle on her end. I know I haven't updated her page on her weight and I have been meaning to do this,  though I will say this ,overall Daisy isn't a big dog , she has a small frame and filled out nicely, no more ribs to be seen , mommy feeds me good . I eat dry inthe morning and later once mommy gets home ,me and Bella ,get a can of wet.  Mommy says I'm not a picky eater . Love Daisy

12/29/06 - HAPPY NEW YEARS !!!! TIME FOR RESOLUTIONS, HUMMM LET SEE , I HAVE JUST ONE IN MIND ,I'M LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT FAMILY TO ADOPT ME.  THE LATEST, MY FOSTER MOMMY PUT ME TO THE TEST ON XMAS DAY AND I GOT TO SPEND IT

12/17/06 - Daisy is finally spayed .she went in on Friday and it's a good thing ,she was about to come into her heat cycle too.  Friday night she cried and was very uncomfortable but now she seems to be recovering quickly, as of today, Saturday she started to finally get her appetite back. I was told by technician, when daisy finally came out of anesthesia, all she did was whine for me.  Boy was she so happy to see me.  Daisy has proved herself to be a great dog and I have no doubts, she will make an excellence pet for someone. We are still working on the basic commands and she continues to make progress.  Check back soon as more updates to follow.

11/28/06 - A brief update on Daisy.  Daisy made her trip back to vet on Saturday.  Her tear strip test shows great progress.  Right eye measured a 10 and Left eye measured at 15.She still continues the eye ointments twice a day till her next tear strip test .Other than this daisy is doing well and still learning the commands.  Sorry I had made this update short ,due to my arm being in a sling .

11/5/06 - Time for a daisy update.  Daisy is a pleasure to have around.  She really has adjusted well.  She know the routine of the house hold and has no problems with it.  She has the run of house while I'm at work and a couple of times she was destructive but it was minor ,a mini blind and a blanket but nothing major.  She will not take food from the table either, instead she will sit there by table and watch you eat, like most dogs I think, but will not beg.  She especially like wet food but will eat the dry,she isn't picky.  Daisy especially gets so excited about going  out, I can barely get her leash on at times.  Once out in the yard and time to go back indoor , you can call her and she comes, she knows the word come and she knows to sit but only when she wants to,stubborn girl!  She will also stay when you tell her to at times and she especially at times likes to play tug of war with the leash ,but I try and roll most of it up and away from her reach  which works at times and than not so good  at other times.  I haven't really been walking her on leash,  just to get to the fenced in yard where she can run & play with my Bella.  I live by a busy road and I think it might be too much with two boxers on leash ,walking them.  I would rather not take any chances as boxers have way too much strength behind them.  I have walked her in past to see how she would do on leash  and she does pull a little and really doesn't know to heal.  Daisy is also a great watch dog.  She has a loud bark and she hears everything . This is my first foster but not new to having dogs as I had them all my life and she sure is a pleasure to have around.  She is just so loveable and very friendly dog.  With a little bit more in the basic commands training ,she is the dog to adopt .

11/1/06 - Daisy has really made herself right at home, from day 1, kind of like she belonged here, not that she's BOSS or anything , she just fit right in .  She is more friendly with people than my other boxer.  She likes to visit the girls downstairs in vets office , oh..... now I know why, she gets cookie bones.  They have even noticed how attached she is to me.  She follows me all over the house and you should see how high she jumps when I come home from work , like a Mexican bean, all over the place, she is just so excited that can barely get her leash on .  I can see the energy level difference in her as opposed to when I first got her.  She is eating good and starting to fill out.  When she first came to me you could see every rib in her body but boy she is looking good now.  Daisy is just as fast as my Bella.  They have a blast in the yard chasing one another.  Daisy's eyes seem to be looking much better since the new ointment but I'll have to keep you update on this, as she gets another tear strip test done in 3 weeks.  More updates to follow .

10/27/07 - Daisy went back to vets yesterday for her tear strip diagnose, as it currently stands ,she does have a case of dry eye (KCS), a decreased level of tear production.  Her left eye measuring less than 5 and the right measuring between 5-10.  The normal range is between 10-15 or over 15.  She currently has been place on a new eye ointment called optimmune along with the antibiotic eye drops, as infections are common when there are inadequate tears to wash away infectious agents away.  She will be retested again in 3 weeks.  Other than her dry eye condition ,she is just fine medically.  She is a sweet little girl  so please don't let this little eye problem stop you from adopting her.  I
would definitely adopt Daisy if I owned my own home but my place is too small and than I wouldn't be able to foster other dogs in need of a home.  YES, I am becoming attached and my other boxer baby loves Daisy, so hurry and get your applications in , she is a keeper .

 

10/25/06 - I'm sorry for slacking in my foster mommy duties ,this was due to moving.  Daisy has adjusted well to the new place ,after a week of having tosleep on a couch ,she couldn't wait to get into bedthe first night at new place,she just loves to snuggle up at your sideand stay toastie.  She also had some steak the other night for dinner andshe takes food nice and easy from your hand,but I told her the steak isonly a treat. I have finally tested Daisy around children over 5 yrs ofage and she has no problem in that area,the test will be under the age of 5.  I am a nana for the second time around, I will be testing this soon.  Daisy at times is stubborn but she knows the sit command and a little of
the come command and has no problem when it's time to go for walk.  Shegoes and gets her own leash,she really get so excited about going out.  Daisy's eyes are looking better with constant cleaning them.  She will be seeing the vet soon for a diagnose of her eyes.  I will say Daisy is a sweet girl and will be missed dearly, she overall is a good dog, good with other dogs,she likes people,children,unsure of kitties and house trained. She also knows the word kisses. Be prepared for more than one wet kiss.

10/17/05 - Daisy made her trip to the vets yesterday, she finally did gain weight, she is weighting in a full 50lbs and is all up to date on her shots.  All she needs now is to be spayed, which is next in line.  She is being treated for an eye infection but it goes a little further.  She has a case of dry eyes that the vet said more than likely she will have this the rest of her life.  If treated correctly and daily with refresh dry eye therapy drops (over the counter) this is just a minor issue.  She is well worth it

10/16/06 - Daisy can be trusted in the house without being crated.  I have been testing her with leaving her for short periods of time and gradually increasing the time, though there was one time she got a hold of my mini blinds and chewed it.  I think she wanted to look out window and I had them down, with them being up ,she is fine.  I pretty much keep my house child proof, as being dog owner for yrs , I learned it's better to be safe than sorry. Daisy is now taking a liking to males providing there is a female present.  I don't feel this is an issue.  We are not sure of small children yet.  I will test her in this area, with in the next couple of weeks. Daisy is still being treated for eye infection, I can see the progress in her eye.  She goes back to vet today for a recheck of the eye and all her shots.  She also rides very well in the car ,very well behaved.  Daisy has a good appetite but I don't think she hasn't gained any weight, as you can see every rib in her body.  I will consult with the vet on this issue.  Daisy has decided ,yesterday ,she picked her food dish up from kitchen floor, carried it out to dining area , I guess she prefers to eat in the dining area ......LOL .  Daisy is finally learning the sit command , as well as stay ,come and down.  She loves to jump up ,wrap her two front paws around your neck and give HUGS.

10/12/06 - Daisy continued to make progress.  She seems to know the sit command when she wants treats and will
even give the paw ,plus lots of WET kisses. She is housetrained ,she will hold her bladder all night without an accident.  She is crated during my working hours and no accidents in crate as well .  Yesterday she finally discovered the toy box ,was very curious, she especially like the rawhide bones and has a healthy appetite.  She overall is a very happy and loveable dog and loves to follow me all around the house .  With a little bit of work and lots of loving, Daisy will definitely steal your heart .  

10/10/06 - DAISY HAS MADE HERSELF RIGHT AT HOME ,SHE  REALLY ADJUSTED WELL AND GETS ALONG WELL WITH MALE AND FEMALE DOG.  SHE DOESN'T LIKE TO BE CRATED BUT TOLERATES IT.  SHE LOVES TO GO FOR WALKS AND DOES VERY WELL ON LEASH ,THOUGH SOMETIMES SHE LIKE TO PLAY TUG OF WAR WITH THE LEASH.  SHE ISN'T HOUSE
TRAINED ,COUPLE OF ACCIDENTS IN THE HOUSE AND MONDAY SHE GOT THE BIG COOKIE BONE FOR NO ACCIDENTS.  OHHHHHHHHH ,SHE LIKES TO MAKE HERSELF COMFORTABLE ON THE FURNITURE.  SHE REALLY DOESN'T KNOW ANY COMMANDS AT THE TIME BUT WE ARE WORKING ON THE " SIT ".  SHE ALSO SEEMS TO TAKING  LIKING TO " FEMALES "
THAN MALES, THATS IN THE HUMAN STATE. WE WILL CONTINUE TO UPDATE THIS.
