I was contact in February by Meagan who found me through the Joy Session Website. She wanted me to photograph her beautiful Great Dane mix, Daisy after she was diagnosed with cancer the day after Christmas.
Meagan met Daisy 7 years ago after an extremely difficult time in her life. Meagan was volunteering at the SPCA of Texas by walking the dogs. After meeting Daisy and noticing about much that Daisy looked like Meagan felt, there was an immediate connection. Not prepared at all to adopt a dog, she left the shelter. On her drive home, she called her mom and told her about this dog she met. Her mom urged her to go back and adopt her and she did. When Meagan returned to the shelter, there was a man in her kennel and Daisy looked terrified. Meagan told this man that Daisy was hers. He looked at her like she was crazy, but when Daisy came over and sat on her feet, he realized they weren’t meant to be together. Daisy was one very lucky girl that Meagan saved her that day because the next day, Daisy got bloat and almost died. Had Meagan not gotten her the treatment she needed immediately she would not have survived. That was the beginning of their life together.
In Meagan’s words “Daisy Martin was a most precious soul and hands down one of the greatest blessings in my life. She knew I was hers before I did and spent her time on Earth teaching me to slow down, be more patient, pick cuddle time over chores, and to always take time to breathe everything in. ”
