Post Adoption Pictures
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.
Daisy has been adopted.
2/27/07 - Daisy's stay has finally

2/25/07 - Daisy is pending adoption

Daisy is enjoying her stay in upstate
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
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

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'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
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
10/10/06 - DAISY HAS MADE HERSELF RIGHT
