Friends For Life: Tracey & Daisy Crufts 2013

Daisy (from XXXX): dog who brought joy to tragic family who lost son and dog to tumours  in the same year -  Tracey tragically lost  her 6 year old son Jack in October 2011 , after a 2 year battle with a brain tumour.  Just months before the family’s Bull Mastiff, Louis, had to be put to sleep after being diagnosed with a tumour as well. The family needed to help fill the immense void in their broken lives deciding to take on Daisy, another Bull Mastiff, who helped in ways they could not have imagined. Tracey said; “No parent should have to lose a beloved child and losing our family pet in the same year just added to our misery. Although the house was quiet and lonely I had not left it for months. Daisy slowly helped bring love and laughter back into our home, she helped me leave the house and without her our world at times would certainly of been a much darker place. We sometimesunderestimate just how much healing the love of a dog can do, in even the most tragic of times, Daisy must of known this and has certainly made a massive difference in our lives.”

Daisy leg injury

On Saturday I took daisy to
Puppy training as normal, it was there that the beginnings of an expensive day started, she was acting rather Excitable that morning and promptly fell whilst bounding towards me, leaving her led whimpering on the floor and frightening the life Out of myself & Craig, she wasn't standing or walking at all We lifted hefty daisy into the car and whisked her to the vets, where they Seemed v worried bout her lameness (they did say after they thought her lameness was that bad she'd broken her leg). Anyhow one anaesthetic & X-ray later, we were told no breaks of ligament damage....phew...we brought her Home where she slept & we carried her back end round if she needed 2 go outside, eat or drink. rest was the order if no improvement back on Wednesday
.Daisy stood at gate tail wagging looking round at me.I'd carried her that far,where'd she want to go now I Opened the gate,and she hobbled here my side of the bed, bless her
Lots of cuddles to make her better

Training had gone backwards *nervous laugh* as daisy hits adolescence
Although new sticks to date are, speak, crawl AND walking nicely on the lead, as opposed to hilariously dragging me across the field where she wants to play.
I have decided NO ONE can actually help me teach daisy to walk nicely on the lead except er me, as it's not worked yet ha ha, I am avoiding the excitement of the field until we have at least established NO PULLING AT ALL!

Training stands....WIP= work ongoing

Watch -WIP
Come STILL working on that
Find it
Hide n seek LOVE this one
No jumping up (all guests given instructions when they come in the house lol)
Leave it - WIP
Fetch it - WIP
Drop it - at my feet WIP

Her puppy biting seems to have subsided in part except when josh (bouncing teenager) starts playing then I have to intervene....
Her temptation to chewing is still ongoing, she is never left unattended therefore any damage is at a minimum, and I do go out on my own, on occasions ha ha....and I have the trusty 'crate' to be thankful for, keeps daisy safe! No really it does ;)
Tips always appreciated
Any suggestions on new tricks to greatly welcomed :)
Toodleloo for now :)

Daisy hot in the sun
