DAISY is a fal­low deer; he ar­rived in a bas­ket one June day in 1909, a forty-eight-hour old baby, a lit­tle spot­ted thing with huge brown eyes and long, un­gainly legs. He never seemed to miss his mother and from the first took an in­ter­est in ev­ery­thing around him. He soon made his home in the ken­nel, sleep­ing at night with three small ter­ri­ers. Af­ter his first year he came and went pretty much as he liked. Twice he has been found solemnly at­tend­ing a fu­neral, his ears droop­ing. His favourite amuse­ment is to go shoot­ing, and he al­ways eats the empty car­tridge cases. Of­ten he is very tire­some, but nearly ev­ery­one loves him, as he has such friendly ways.
