A Grateful Daisy

Hi there! My name is Daisy and I’m a 5-year-old pup who has been looking for my happy new home here at AWS. My life’s been a journey but I’m so grateful to be where I am today so I can start this next exciting chapter of my life. It’s not every day that a humble dog like me gets to be the star of her very own blog. I can’t stop wagging my tail!

My foster mom tells me that a big celebration is coming up on Thursday and that it centers around eating a lot of food. That sounds AMAZING! I love food and will do just about anything for a cookie, let alone some turkey! Of course, I’ve been told that the holiday is also about giving thanks for what you have and showing gratitude to those around you. As a dog, I show gratitude every day because I can’t help but wag my tail when people walk by or rub my head against a hand when someone reaches down to pet me. In fact, to celebrate the spirit of this season, I’m going to include a list of all the things I’m grateful for in my life!

  • Long walks through the woods
  • Spray cheese from a can
  • The warm sun on my fur
  • Chasing after a ball in the autumn leaves
  • A Kong stuffed with peanut butter
  • Belly rubs!
  • A home of my very own
  • A family to love

Okay so I don’t have those last two things yet, but I know I will! I’m also grateful that I get to be somewhere safe and sound like in a foster home while I wait for those last two wishes to come true. I know my perfect family is out there and I will be forever grateful, humbled, and happy to be adopted by them and take the exciting car ride home. Who knows? Maybe I’ll be home for Thanksgiving, or perhaps Christmas, or possibly the new year. Whatever the time and season, there’s always a reason to celebrate and give thanks and for me, that’s right now. So, thank you for reading, thank you for supporting AWS and, to whomever adopts me, THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING ME. I can’t wait to spend the holidays at home with you!

What are you grateful for this season? I want to know! Let’s meet up so you can tell me in person (in dog?) Give my friends at AWS a call at (207) 985-3244 and my foster mom will bring me over. We’re ready to make the trip!
