This was Poppy in the car on the way home. So little and bewildered. She was living with her Mum and two sisters and a brother when we picked her up. David20 was with me and in the car all the way up I kept suggesting different names to him, but ‘Poppy’ she stayed. He was adamant. I have to say that it suits her.
When we got home Tom21 came out to the car to greet us. He looked in at Poppy sitting on David20’s lap and his face just softened. He picked her up and carried her out to the backyard to introduce her to everyone else. I love this photo of them both bonding.
Within the first 5 minutes she’d learned about cats. Maris gave her a quick swipe across the face and she hasn’t willingly been near a cat since. This suits everyone, though Daphne keeps trying to walk up to her and smooch her as a sign of dominance but Poppy keeps backing away.
This is pretty much a picture of her life so far. Yesterday was a rainy day so we were all inside for much of the day and I don’t think she hit the floor very often. The firm rule of ‘no dogs on the couch’ is being circumvented – “She’s on my lap, Mum.”
