My friend saw that her Father in Law was getting up there in age and needed a companion. So she and her husband purchased for him an Old English Sheepdog puppy who, of course, became his daughter, Daisy.

That dog was a sight during the winter in New York! She would race to the top of a piled up "snow hill," sit, then slide down on her rear. I certainly would have loved to see that.

Daisy was a fine example of the Old English Sheepdog breed, sired by the canine star of "Please Don't Eat The Daisies." She later mated with a Grand U.S. and Grand Bahamian Champion who had sired many champions. What an awesome litter that was!

I'll tell you about the pups some other day. My friend has a thick "puppy album" of just the first six weeks of the litter's life.

My Mother often tells me that the film, "Please Don't Eat The Daisies," is hilarious. I suppose I should see it in honor of Daisy. She was a character!
