Show us your life- Pets- Daisy

Cell phone pic, kinda blurry

Sick day

Here she is peeing in the snow! Ha!

I normally don't do blog carnivals, but I thought that I would do this one because my sweet pet means a lot to me!
We only have one pet, Daisy. Daisy is a rat terrier. Her life has changed dramatically over the last 15 months. I still love her as much as ever, but now I do realize that she is a dog and not a child. Everyone always says that your dog will get on your nerves after a baby arrives, and I thought that could never be true. I love Daisy very much, but it is impossible to give her the same amount of attention that she got before MA arrived.
I was lucky enough to find Daisy at Trade Day (don't judge me) when she was 8 weeks old. She was so sweet and I knew immediately that she was supposed to be mine! It was love at first sight. She came home with me that day and has moved 7 times in her 10 years on this earth. She has been through so much with me! Every serious boyfriend, every breakup with said serious boyfriend, sick family members, marriage, having a baby, and anything else that you can think of! I honestly sometimes wonder if I could have made it through those times without her. She is a little (maybe a lot) neurotic, but loyal and she can be SO sweet. Thanks for all you do Daisy!

Prayers needed

Hello all. I just want to let you know that Sandi, my sister (in-law technically, but we are really more like sisters) needs your prayers, and really so do all of us. If you aren't familiar with her story, you can read about her (here and here).

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9
