Anything else you'd like to add: She’s very talkative, clingy (in the nicest way possible), and very attached to her sledding sibling Grey. She avoids all dog-related conflict and she’s very intuitive regarding the energy of other dogs. She is constantly trying to push past things/situations she’s nervous or unsure of, especially when she sees that Grey is ok with that situation.

SESSION NOTE ~ When I first met Daisy I wanted to take her home. She had just come into care with the Victoria Humane Society and went I went to photograph her and the gang she came in with, she was such a love bug. My husband had come along to help and she followed him around and as soon as he sat down on a ramp in the kennel, she jumped up to get some pets.
I knew she would get a great home... and she did.
She was pretty nervous at the session, but she saw the her sibling GreyGrey was ok with it, so she did her best to be ok with it too.
