What About Daisy - Book Review & Giveaway

While shopping for pet food in 2008, Maryam Faresh and her partner Bruce Meade saw a sign hanging on the wall with a picture of a white puppy with spots and strange looking eyes. The sign read, “Blind and deaf puppy needs home.” Bruce looked at Maryam and without a word, called the number on the sign. Immediately, they went to meet the puppy – within minutes, they knew they had to have her.

Maryam and Bruce have already experienced a “special needs” animal with their cat, Louie. At only 10 months old Louie was in the process of having half of his back right leg amputated while his back left leg was broken and in a cast. Now a three-legged wonder, Louie, has a special bond with his pet siblings Daisy and Olivia.

The first 6-8 months of having Daisy was tough. Not only was she a puppy, but she was puppy who couldn’t see or hear! Maryam and Bruce figured out that they needed to be patient and it would be up to Daisy to let their love and care in. This patience paid off and in 2010 Daisy inspired the children’s story, “What about Daisy?” to come to life.

“What about Daisy?” is an inspiring children’s story about a deaf/blind rescue dog in search of her forever home. With the help of her canine rescue mom, Ms. Didi, her two fairies, Bella & Beva and a three legged cat named Louie, the adventure to find Daisy her loving home will entertain and warm your heart.

Today, Daisy is truly a wonder. She can go up and down stairs, plays with Olivia and Louie, can swim and even goes to schools with Maryam to teach kids the importance of loving everyone, even if they have special needs, unconditionally. To date Daisy has visited and taught more than 1,500 students throughout California.
