I love this story. Two years this May, a fellow doxieholic agreed to foster a senior dachshund that had been surrendered to a shelter. She ended up being a foster failure and adding Daisy to her permanent pack. When you rescue a dog, you often get a dog with little information about her past. And although, we may not technically know the pup’s birthday or exact age that just means we get to make it up. Many rescues birthdays are often the day the pup was permanently placed with the forever family or some other significant date that holds a special meaning. Daisy’s parents celebrate her birthday on May 20, because it was the day they first met. Daisy is estimated to be either 17 or 18, and is enjoying her golden years with a loving family and doxie pack. Happy Birthday Daisy and may there be many happy returns.  Daisy is also featured in the book 102 Dachshunds along with her pack mates Bandit and Rusty.

    Kudos to Daisy’s family for taking on this little senior lady! I hope my Hannah, only 12 by estimation when I rescued her 2 years ago, lives such a long and loving life (we’re striving). Hannah also celebrates her BIRTHDAY in May . . . the 26th.

  3. Who in their right mind could surrender, ( get rid of ) a dog this old ? Good Lord, my human kids use to tell their friends my Mom would get rid of us before her dogs…darn straight. The dogs behave AND listen ! I would just die if I had to get rid of any of my animals. It’s NOT an option, ever. I buried my former dogs ashes with my late husband so they would never be alone. I promised them that when they were little ones. Even my cats ashes went in ! Sorry Bob if it’s a tight fit in there…….
