Pushing Daisies

“I’d rather be doing this then pushing daisies.”

When we’re complaining about our day-to-day, at times mundane life, let’s stop for a moment and weigh our options –

how about if our only other option was pushing daisies?

The daisies grow on their own – they don’t need pushing,

so it’s a worthless job.

Let’s get on the bright side of the equation while we still have options.

through animal-assisted support to individuals affected by crisis and disasters.

Dominated by watchful eyes and compassionate responses,

Lily and her team are responsible for making

so many in need,

lucky dogs.
