Daisy is our youngest member of staff. At just turned two, she is endearingly barmy, with a lightness of foot that always brings to mind a floating dandelion seed. Sometimes, when she is running, she will make a flying leap into the air, seemingly for no other reason than sheer joy of living.

I had to take her to the vet’s on Wednesday for her annual injection; a procedure to which she took grave exception, nobly demonstrated when she was volubly sick all over the consulting table. I expected that when we arrived home she would be a bit quiet, but no – apart from a tendency to demand more cuddles, she was her own, tiny dancing self again.

Daisy’s teachings:

  • Live in the moment.
  • Dance whenever you have the opportunity.
  • Forgive all and bear no grudges.
  • When you feel like you want a cuddle – ask.
