Daisy My Heart Dog
Lately, I've been pondering over why I find it so hard to write Daisy's blog posts vs. the ones I write on my No Dog About It Blog, and then I saw this blog post today and I knew. Daisy is my heart dog. No. She's not gone - Thank God! But, writing about someone or something that is close to you can be so much harder than writing about a story, a video, a news story or topic.
Right now I've got 3 blog posts just waiting to be finished, but every time I start to write or edit or tweak (yes, I do a lot of that too) I find myself getting stuck. Not one of them captures her perfectly. Not one of them seems to do her justice. Not one of them can tell you what a very special dog she is to me and how much I am going to miss her when she is gone. Keeping one's emotions on the sidelines is a lot harder when writing about Daisy. But, I'll do my best.
