The pup, Daisy, is more interested in cuddling and snuggling than in romping and running. Everyone calls Daisy a lazy dog, except Mattie, who thinks her pup is perfect just the way she is. The notion that we are all good at something is realized when Daisy’s laziness becomes an asset as she becomes a “love dog” at a hospital.
This book is inspired by the mission of therapy animal programs across the country. When witnessing the human-animal bond that occurs between hospitalized children and visiting therapy dogs, one recognizes that it takes a special type of dog to be a “love dog.” Lazy Daisy, the Love Dog captures this concept in an enchanting tale of a puppy’s serendipity route to becoming a therapy dog. The whimsical illustrations are printed from original watercolors and skillfully convey Daisy’s personality and adventures.
