Daisy is the law firm mascot. She is a West Highland White Terrier. She was purchased from a dairy farm in Kentucky that raised this breed. Remembering Charles Schulz, Snoopy, and the Peanuts gang, the dairy farm in Kentucky was referred to as the “Daisy Hill Puppy Farm,” and Daisy was named in honor of the farm from which she originated.
Shortly after obtaining Daisy, Daisy was forced to grow up in a nursing home when our Assistant, Suzanne Huston, took care of her mother’s failing health during the last two years of her life. Daisy would make the daily trip to the nursing home, and Daisy would curl up and sleep when not being fussed over by nursing home staff and residents during her visits. Daisy became very accustomed to people, and to being quiet during the day.
After her mother passed, Suzanne Huston joined Phillips Law Firm, Inc., and Daisy joined us also, and it has worked out wonderfully. Daisy stays under the front desk, unnoticed by most visitors, unless she comes out to say hello and welcome you. She loves it when people bring her a treat, like the mail delivery people, or the client that brings Fido’s Freezzys (https://www.facebook.com/fidosfreezzys/) a Daisy favorite treat.
So, if you are a dog person, ask to say hello to Daisy, and she will come out to greet you. If you are not a dog person, no worries. Daisy will stay comfortably under the front desk until she wins you over.
