Meet our February pet of the month Daisy. This sweet girl enjoys hiking 2-4 miles every day with her sidekick Jasmine the cat and her favorite humans Ginny and Tom. Daisy is from Jamestown, Colorado where she lives in a forest at 8,000 feet. On any given day she enjoys taking lots of walks and depending on the time of year a brisk roll in the grass or snow. While some folks were experiencing snowy weather this pup enjoyed a few warm January days at Ambrosia. While at Ambrosia Daisy loved how friendly and welcoming everyone was. Daisy loves that she is able to go everywhere with her family in Key West. After a long day of exploring she really enjoyed the air conditioning in Katie's Kottage. Per Daisy a donation will be made to Florida Keys Wild Bird Rehab Center.
