Two Years Ago

I can hardly believe that two years ago my beloved Daisy Dog died.

This is Daisy when we first got her nearly seven years ago.

She is not impressed with her kennel


This is me and her after one of my operations on a walk to Ramsholt.


Here she is on the way to get Kainaat

From day one she adored him.

She taught him how to play tug-of-war and let him win most of the time.

She was great with kids

And was the master of the long-suffering, slightly disapproving stare.


She also excelled at doing the campers’ washing up and loved working the sheep. She was my beloved, unique, incorrigible, wonderful Daisy Dog.

A year ago, Joe was here and he brought me this beautiful painting by Crayton. I look at it everyday and think of her – it is such a wonderful present, thank you again Crayton (and Joe).

  1. Dear Claire, I kept a photo print of Daisy Dog for myself and it hangs over the kitchen counter where I enjoy looking in her eyes every day too. Glad the original is with you to keep her alive in your home. Crayton
