daisyDaisy, the faithful and gentle pit bull – the nicest example of the breed I’ve ever met – died last weekend.

Daisy was 12 and belonged to my son’s wife, Ruth Greenberg. Daisy loved to hang out in Ruth’s ceramics studio and Sean’s recording/mixing studio at their home in Portland, Ore.

Sean called me Friday afternoon and told me they were going to have to put Daisy down on Saturday because she was suffering with cancer. I could tell by his voice that he was miserable about losing her.

I checked in with them about 6 p.m. PDT on Saturday and he said they were expecting the person who would administer the drug at their home in about an hour. He texted me later that night to reassure me that they were at peace with the situation.

Daisy was the ring bearer for Sean and Ruth’s wedding on Sept. 27, 2004.
