Daisy is a spunky girl with loads of energy and a zest for life, and her namesake underbite gives her a unique smile that’s sure to put a smile on your face too! Although she was born with her elbow, right shoulder, and hips dislocated, she doesn’t let her mobility issues slow her down. Prior to August 2015, sweet Daisy used a wheelchair to get around, but after weeks of practicing on her pawsome custom-made prosthetic legs, Daisy is now walking on all fours! Daisy’s mission in life is to spread the message that special needs animals are just that—special.
Cuteness recently had the pleasure of asking Daisy a few questions about her favorite doggie fashions (hint: comfort is a top priority!) and about what brings her happiness. She also provides some sage advice on how anyone can live a joyful life no matter what.
You have a pawsome sense of style. What is your favorite outfit that you’ve worn?
Why, thank you! I love my pink, sparkly dress because I feel fabulous in them. I also love the fact that they are sleeveless because I can wear my prosthetic legs without having to roll up the sleeves and feeling like I have sausage arms (although it sounds yummy) and being uncomfortable.
If you could hang out with any historical figure, who would it be?
Lucille Ball. I love making people smile and the queen of comedy can teach me so many valuable lessons that I feel I can also apply to my life. She is so wise and beautiful!
What makes you the happiest?
I am really drawn to people and can't help walking over to say hi every time I see a stranger. When they pet and talk to me, my tail begins to wag so fast and makes me truly happy when I see them smiling.
What would be your most pawsome day?
My pawsome day will begin by walking at a park on a sunny, beautiful day and saying hi to everyone. Since I love sweets, but only get a very small portion on my birthday, I want an ice cream cone all to myself. After my heart and stomach are happy, I want to take a long, sweet nap until the day ends.
What words of wisdom would you like to share with the world?
I've learned that it is important to understand that you cannot please everyone, so just walk away (or roll away if you use a wheelchair, like me). Stay focused on yourself and do what makes your tail wag. Keep moving forward even if the progress may seem slow to you. Best of all, life is short. Smile while you still have teeth!
