Daisy is 9 months old today!!

I haven't posted about Daisy lately and thought since she turned 9 months old today I would share and update.  She is now 85lbs and consuming lots of food.  This picture shows her with a couple of new toys.  One is tucked under her belly so her older sister Jessee can't get it.  Toys last about 15minutes once they are out of the bag.  I am in search of the indistructable toy and haven't found it yet.  She chewed through 2 baseballs and 4 tennis balls last week and once she gets the squeaker out of her toys she loses interest.  Typical toddler don't you think.

This picture was taken when she was 8weeks old and I just threw it in so you could compare it with the next pick.
This is Daisy standing next to Jessee.  You can see that Jessee is now dwarfed by Daisy's size. Jessee is not a small dog, She is a 90lb Chesapeake Bay Retriever so you can understand just how big our Daisy is getting.  She now thinks of the bathroom sink as her watering hole and has figured out how to turn the water on to drink from the faucet. What a gem! 

Lastly I wanted to update everyone on Cosmo's wellbeing.  You have all been very supportive and I greatly appreciate your kind words.  He is holding his own.  He sleeps quite a bit and has lost several pounds but still gives us plenty of loving.  Every day the boys say "Mom, isn't it good that we didn't put him to sleep" as I try to recoup from the ENORMOUS vet bill and giving him more medications than I take myself.  It was so worth it just to have these snuggly moments with him.  He is definitely a love:)   Happy Easter to all who are celebrating this holiday and I hope we get some genuine spring weather soon!!  Happy Stitching!

My dog destroys all her toys within minutes as well. We did find one thing that has lasted. It is a basically a stuffed toy that isn't stuffed. It is just the outer body. There are several animals to choose from. The squeakers went fast, but Spitty Squirrel, as we call him, is still intact. We found them on e-Bay, but I think you may be able to find them at Wal-Mart. It has held up well to being thrown and fetched, chewed on, and shaken violently. They are Skinneeez Dog Toys unstuffed with squeakers. You can search e-Bay for unstuffed toys. http://cgi.ebay.com/Skineez-Unstuffed-Dog-Toys-Rabbit-Fox-Raccoon-23-inch-/320672088928?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&var=&hash=item76c00b13c0

Unbelievable how big Daisy has gotten--I think her name should really be Sunflower, since she's such a large dog now :)

And I'm so glad Cosmo is holding his own--I know you're relishing this extra time with him, Nataly!

Loved seeing your furbabies! Daisy is beautiful. What kind of dog is she?

Sorry your cat has been feeling poorly. Such a hard decision sometimes when is comes to their health and how much do we intervene in the natural course of their lives. I understand the vet bills. It took years to pay off the credit card after an emergency situation with one of our horses. But when I see her everyday out in the field healthy and happy, I know it was worth it.

I've thought from the very beginning that Daisy was an awesome dog. I just love her colouring.

I'm glad to hear that Cosmo is managing not too badly. I've been thinking about him and wondering how he's been doing. You're lucky to have this extra time with him.

What beautiful dogs! I miss my Maine Coon Lex, he passed on a little more then a year ago. Hope yours is still doing well.
