Poppy doesn't look impressed with her new Christmassy coat. Lol..To be honest she always looks like that, when she sees anyone of us getting her ready for a walk .. ..Lighten up ,Poppy,it's Christmas ! xx

Aw,thank you Kate, Poppy is our Daughters dog,but we take her out most days,as she works. I call her my little shadow,as she follows me everywhere :o).
Have a wonderful Christmas..xx

She's a pretty little girl who looks very smart in her new coat.

Thank you Anget,she is so funny,as whenever she sees us getting her coat and lead,she stands rigid,and would probably not move at all,if we left her..Lol .Once outside ,she's fine ..:o) The photo shows just how she reacts ! lol

Beautiful Poppy...love the coat...very festive colours.

Thank you Julia, looking forward to seeing her tomorrow,and our Family,of course ! :o) x.

She is so cute Sandra! I just want to cuddle her! I wouldn't want to send her home!
I love the coat too! xx

Rose,she has stolen our hearts, and considering Russell wasn't really a dog lover,he is worse than me ! lol. she has such a lovely nature too,but she seems to think she's a Rottweiler when she sees other dogs ! Lol. She would love you ,Rose,as she loves cuddles ..:o) xx

Haha Sandra, she's like Lottie, anxious until out the door then Bark bark bark at any dog she sees, even the ones who would eat her for dinner! They're protective of us tho.
If you managed to get Poppy out of the door wearing her new coat, you've done better than me. Lottie won't walk at all until it's taken off and I can't really drag her round like a sack!

Lol Janey,Lottie sounds just like her ,doesn't she? Barks at almost everyone,which is embarassing sometimes. If we see someone approching,especially with a child,I warn them she will probably bark,so not to scare them,but she definitely doesn't bite.
Once she gets to know someone, especially if they have a dog,she is friendly,
I think it's just a small dog/breed trait,as Alison is a member of a Dachshund Society,and they all meet up at different venues ,on a regular basis and the majority of them bark ,but all get on well together. They went to Temple Newsham last Sunday..it was bedlam,apparently ! lol.
Dog training didn't work..been there ,done that ! ha ha.

She was very naughty a couple of weeks ago,as Alfie forgot to move his Chocolate Advent Calendar out of reach,when he went to School..and when we arrived later that morning,all had been eaten from 15th Dec..till 25th,
! Clues of ripped packaging all over the floor..

Alison had to ring the vet ,as you will know ,Chocolate can be poisonous to dogs,and we worked out the amount she had eaten ,in Grammes,from the packaging.. Thank goodness,the amount consumed ..42 gm..wasn't a dangerous level.. Phew.. I think she was very partial to 'Kevin the Carrot ' ! ha ha,, x

Have a lovely Christmas Janey,and hugs to Lottie :o) x

She looks like that because it's Christmas lol like me, it just isn't my thing ... :D
Have a lovely day Poppy xx

24 Dec, 2021

 

Ha ha,Hywel. Possibly !. I think she will change her mind tomorrow,when she has lots of attention,and a few allowable treats ! I will pass on your good wishes . :o) x

24 Dec, 2021

 

She should have that every day Sandra :) x

24 Dec, 2021

 

Lol.she doesn't go short,Hywel.. ha ha..

24 Dec, 2021

 

I really like her new coat Sandra and hope she cheers up as the day unfolds!! I know how much she means to you and I can see why!
Hope you have fun with her and the family over Christmas ......just keep her away from the chocolates!!!
xx

She is gorgeous. Happy Christmas Poppy.....Have a good day...and don't eat the CHOCOLATE!!!

25 Dec, 2021

 

Im not surprised she doesnt want to go out, even in her Christmas Coat, its raining this morning.

25 Dec, 2021

 

Ooh Poppy! Advent chocolates, they're sacred!
I can.imagine her face when.you found it...That sort of side long glance and slow slink into her basket? Haha...what a tinker. I'm pleased all's ok though.
I brought mum in law over and Lottie was the star of the show, throwing her Christmas pudding..(new velvet toy not a real one!) into June's lap for June to throw. Even as June was beginning to nod off, pudding was thrown harder..then the begging began..along with a whine which woke June to fling it and begin to nod off again! What an afternoon..

Thank you Chris,and she was very well behaved on Christmas day,and she had quite a few acceptable treats ,so all is forgiven ..all chocolate related goodies,were well out of reach ! x
....
Thank you Linda,she is a lovely dog,and wished her a Happy Christmas on your behalf She was given a doggy Chocolate ,in case she had withdrawal .symptoms ! Lol x

Siris, she hates going out in the rain,but when you have to go,you have to go ! lol ..Lucky she doesn't need her lovely coat on,in the garden :o)

26 Dec, 2021

 

Lol,Janey, It sounds like you know all about( 'The look' )with Lottie,and it was just the same ,,must be a guilty dog trait ! ha ha..Little devils :o)
It made me smile about the Christmas Pudding..:o) Poppy had an Elephant,and so far,only one ear missing,and the 'Squeaker' is still intact ! The crocodile is as yet,all in one piece,but I'll give it a couple of days !
Poor June, having her Chrismas nod disturbed though.,but no chance here with two energetic boys and Poppy.:o) I'm sure you still had a n
Hope you had a lovely Christmas day,as we did..xx

26 Dec, 2021

 

No, June thought it was funny..:))
We celebrated Christmas Eve, as Katherine was working Christmas Day, so I brought June to mine.. we had a lovely time.

So pleased you had a smashing Christmas too..x

Poppy's beaten Lottie to it, Lott's new toys are still intact!

27 Dec, 2021

 

That was nice to have June's company,Janey. How good is your Lottie ? I bet she won't be long in making a dent in them,once boredom sets in ! ha ha.
Not sure how Poppy's are ,they were still looking the same when we got back after a lovely Boxing day lunch out :o) x..

27 Dec, 2021

 

That sounds heavenly Sandra, I hope you enjoyed it. x

27 Dec, 2021

 

Thank you Janey. we went to pub that does a lovely Carvery,so we all had a lovely meal ..Alison took a small dish,so we put a few tasty morsels in from our plates to take home for Poppy :o) all gone in a few seconds ! lol x

27 Dec, 2021

 

Poppy looks like a child not wanting to play the part Haha , Love all these doggy pics , makes me realize how much we miss our old Barney , x

30 Dec, 2021

 

Ha ha,Amy.that's it exactly ! she still tries to slink away from us, when she sees us getting her coat,or harness, then she goes rigid,when we say 'No'.,and we then get 'The look' ! Once she is outside she is fine..Lol. I'm sure you do miss Barney,I don't think you ever forget a much loved pet. xx.
