Here comes Trouble... My Diabolito!

Eventually Daisy took to her doggie duties by teaching Sid how to play nice and not too rough. Through his first two years, he tormented her trying to get her to play with him, and she would grab him by the jowls and shake him, letting him know to settle down. He had the most mournful Woowoowoowoo whenever she scolded him. They were so entertaining together and she showed so much patients with him. But they also loved each other. He always wanted to sle…
