Daisy, Around Town’s trusty canine model (pictured below in this week's issue) and beloved member of the Sheehan family, sadly passed away Wednesday, just a few days after our photo shoot. She was 15 ½-years-old.
Daisy lived a long, good life but that doesn’t make her loss any less heartbreaking. When Daisy first joined the family, she wasn’t young anymore—but neither were my parents. She’d never been trained, so she never responded to commands with anything more than a sidelong glance—but her freethinking ways were accepted, even respected, in our house. Daisy wasn’t the most doting dog on the block either, but she won us all over with a charisma born of her catlike aloofness: It made you cherish those rare nuzzles of the hand or offerings of her paw even more.
We'll miss you, Daisy.
