Humane Society Silicon Valley (Milpitas, CA)
Hi! My name is Daisy, and I just don’t feel I need to be defined by my teeth. Yes, I have quite an underbite, and I’ve heard all the jokes. But honestly, didn’t a lot of you humans have braces as a kid? Well, I didn’t. Thus, I have an underbite. And by the way, I’m perfect. I’m 5 years old––old enough to behave in a dignified fashion and not eat the sofa or steal every last sock you own. The staff calls me a “gentle soul” and it fits. In my last home, I had a canine sister so I’m good with other dogs. When my owners moved, their new place wouldn’t let us come so here I am.
What movie star would you want to portray you in a movie of your life and why?
I think Meryl Streep is the obvious choice. Such beauty, such grace and there’s a kindness to her that really reflects me very well. We could do a prosthetic on the teeth for her of course – but she’s the only one that would do the role justice.
If you won the lottery, what would you do?
Everyone expects me to say ‘do something about the teeth’ but honestly, I wouldn’t. They give me character. You wouldn’t ask Cindy Crawford to remove her mole, would you? First, I’d sponsor the adoption fee of every single dog here – I’m a sweet girl. Then I’d go run amuck in the pet store – just leave a credit card on the counter and say “charge me for everything I eat out of the bulk bins, because I’m running amuck.” Then I’d hire a bunch of older folks to come sit with me all day and I’d go from one lap to the next.
Who is your best friend?
Why you are, of course. And I can’t wait to go home with you. Why haven’t you come in to see me yet?
If you could invite anyone to lunch, who would it be and why?
Let’s be real here. While my retiring, calm demeanor defines me, I am a dog. The proper question is ‘who is most likely to feed the dog what they’re eating and would they like to go to lunch with me?’.
