Sit, Daisy! Sit!
She’s such a cutie!
Hopefully this isn’t the first step in renaming her Ubu.
Congrats on the furry new addition to the Scalzi family. So happy for you all.
She’s a keeper alright. A total star.
Oooh, she’s going to be a smiler! I can see it in her eyes. One of these days she’ll flatten her ears and wrinkle her nose and pull her lips back and just give you the biggest smile you ever saw.
And you’ll melt. What a cutie!
A good dog. A photogenic dog, even better. You’ll love it here, Daisy.
And if Chang≠Chang tries to call you “anteater thing” or something similar, take it as a compliment. ;-)
She’s beautiful. :)
Really does make me miss the golden retriever my parents had.
All hail the new Radiant She.
The Official Daisy Fan Club
Awwww! She looks so… so… cuddly!
Where do I sign up for the fan club?
As previously mentioned on Facebook, she looks a lot like our Fargo. May she bring you as much joy, and less exasperation, as our friend.
I like how she looks delighted to be there, yet also a little wary. She must be a regular Whatever reader.
So I see you used a flash.
For a mix, she’s got that laid-back lab look down cold.
A very good dog! *pets ears* *fusses over shamelessly*
*….may, in fact, be a dork*
O Lowly Minion Scalzi, how lonely you must have been all alone at the bottom of the Minion Totem Pole.
So now you have the satisfying company of a peer. (Actually Replacement Minion Daisy is – as usual – one notch above you. So you are still alone at the bottom.)
The Executive Committee has called a subcommittee into session to determine a correct name for this New-Thing. When it has been selected, we’ll let you know. Don’t call us, we’ll call you.

Aww, she’s so cute! She looks a lot like my boyfriend’s dog, an adorable Lab/mystery mix. Gotta love the soft ears and, if she’s anything like the lookalike puppy, the plentiful early-morning kisses.
She’s beautiful. What a great find — for you and for her.
She’s just BEAUTIFUL. And she looks sweet. Congratulations.
She looks like a sweetie. Hopefully she and the cats will get along fine.
Ok, you need to stop with the cute dog pics. Because the next thing you know, I’ll be fencing my back yard (can’t really afford at the moment), and bringing home Vera or Jackson (yes, their real names — Vera is an awesome young pit (I think boxer)/shepherd mix, and Jackson is collie-hound and a couple of years old — from the no-kill shelter…
gawd, Daisy is such a sweetie!
What a sweet little gal! IMO, you can never have too many doggie pics on a blog.
Lucky Daisy! She looks like a beautiful dog.
Congratulations to the whole family.
Permission to slobber?
The first official portrait of The New Radiant She is perfect. We, the Executive Committee of The Official Daisy Fan Club forthwith authorize you to place it in the most ornate frame possible and mount it over your mantle.
If you do not have a mantle, you are hereby ordered to get one.
And Chang, the Radiant She’s name is Daisy. Do not blaspheme it again.

Such a pretty girl! My little french bulldog is named Daisy! Actually her official name is something awful like Baby Tess but I changed it. lol. And actually call her DaisyLouWho. But I babble…….
Hi, Daisy! You are a very pretty dog!
It’s a good weekend for pound dogs. Friends of mine just picked one up as well. Daisy sure looks happy!
She’s definitely part lab. She’s got that “Ooh! Is that a camera? I bet I can get my nose all the way to the lens” expression all labs have.
Cute Labrador, John.
Just a thought: John seems more Steven Keaton than Alex Keaton. ;)
She’d look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two.
She’d look uncomfortable on it, more likely.
Those eyes! Those expressive, happy eyes!
Congrats on the new member of the family.
I could be remembering wrong – or, more likely have never actually seen the boundaries of your vast expanse of lawn – but: is it fenced? Will Daisy have free run of the 40 or so acres that comprise the Scalzi yard?
aww… she looks really happy!
“…and there will be treats afterward, right? RIGHT?”
::talkin’ to the puppy voice::
Who’s a good girl, huh ? Who’s a good girl ?!?
(while scratching behind the ears, of course)
BTW, Lab and Mastiff has gotta be a great mix. I bet Daisy will make a wonderful “family” dog…
Does she give puppy kisses?
Oh, my, yes.
Oh my G-D I need to come over for puppy kisses, then. Nothing ensures a great day like puppy spit does!!!
Thank goodness it looks like she has Lab flews more so than Mastiff ones. Slobber should be pretty managable, except after drinking, when most any dog drips from the lips. And the fur situation may be slightly better as her coat doesn’t look as poofy as Kodi’s (good dog) – if you didn’t have a Furminator before, I highly, highly recommend one. I, too, have a Lab mix, named Daisy Jane the WigglePig, and spent 10 minutes ever other day of the last week on helping the fall shedding along. I’ve pulled out so much, but the tuffties just keep mocking me with the way they shove themselves out of the coat. Lab undercoat is a scary thing.
In my official capacity as a crazy dog lady who is especially crazy for recuse let me just say, omg she’s such a Cutie McCuterson and I want to snorgler her cheek and scrootch her belly!
