We adopted Daisy at the Petsmart in Irving, Texas, 1998. She was three-years-old. Our new house seemed so big and quiet moving from our small one-bedroom apartment in New Jersey. Of course 'Daisy' wasn't our first choice of a name - it was simply the one she had when we brought her home, so we kept it. And she traveled these United States with us. From Irving, to Boyd, to Wichita, to Richardson (she spent six months in drax0r's room as his nighttime toe-licker), to Saint Louis; And finally to Anna, where she'll be laid to rest. The house feels big and lonely again without her, and I'm having a hard time coping with her absence. I know the grief will lessen a bit each day, but right now, I don't want it to.
