Introducing Poppy

Those of you who have been following my blog for a year will know that I had to have my lovely dog Bonnie put to sleep last February. As I have health issues I had thought that I would not be getting another dog. However, the more time that passed the more I was missing Bonnie. Instead of getting easier it was getting harder so in the end I decided that I just had to have a new dog.

I should like to introduce you all to my lovely new Heinz 57 Pup who I have called Poppy. She pops around all over the place, doesn’t run, but bounces in a poppy fashion so the name really suits her. She is a cross between a full Jack Russell on one side and a Jack/Yorkie cross on the other. Her face is quite yorkie, her back legs Russell, and her markings Russell, but other than that everyone who has seen her in the fur says she resembles a Guinea Pig as she is rather wide in the beam and has the most peculiar walk.

She came to live with me late on Friday and already she is sneaking into my heart. I think perhaps I should have called her Mischief as I can already tell she is going to be one of those naughty little dogs who gets into all sorts and then looks at you with that ‘who me Mum’ look on their face and gets away with all sorts.

Anyhow enough boring rambling now for some uber cuteness. If cute offends you look away now, cos this was described by a friend as ‘an explosion of cute’. A few, so far, lol, of my favourite Poppy pics.

The first one is my Daughter with Poppy.

Poppy had only been with me about an hour when I came back from the loo to find she had pushed one of the minimo bears on their backs and was giving it a good licking so I had to move them all out of her reach, and this is the closest she will get, when she is asleep!

I doubt if I will be getting much chance to craft for the foreseeable future. I have paper everywhere, and I don’t mean the craft sort, and every time I sit down Poppy wants to go out, bite me, or just generally be a pickle. She is having 40 winks right now, so I thought I would get this done while I had the chance.
