Today, I’m talking about my dog. If you’re a dog lover, you’ll be excited, if not…come back tomorrow ;).
The other day, I briefly mentioned Poppy and many, many, many of you had questions about our dog, wanted to see more pictures of our dog, you didn’t know we had a dog…let’s put it this way, I received a lot of dog comments and/or emails.
Quick Facts about Poppy:
1. She’s a Coton de Tulear.
2. She’ll be three in April.
3. She’s small (about 10 pounds).
4. She’s really sweet and super friendly.
5. She has decided that she’s Andrew’s dog and follows him everywhere.
Since so many of you wanted more Poppy pictures, I decided to do a Day in the Life of Poppy
Andrew’s up at 4:15 each morning, I’m up at 4:20 and Poppy is up at 4:25. She’s waiting for us to get our coffee and then to let her outside to potty.
As soon as she pottys, she comes straight to my office and lays on the floor by my chair while I work.
Around 6:20, when I go to the kitchen to get the kids’ breakfast together, she always goes and sleeps on the back of the couch. Andrew doesn’t let her on the furniture (which she and I both know) but…I really don’t care what she does as long as she’s being quiet (let’s all hope Andrew doesn’t see this…).
This is where Smith sits each morning while he’s watching TV and waking up…she can hear Smith talking in the kitchen, so she’s waiting on him.
Andrew gets home from the gym (we all pretend like she’s never been on the furniture…she scampers off quickly when she hears the back door open) and he feeds her breakfast (or Kensington does…they take turns).
And then Poppy heads to her favorite spot…under my bed. This is where she stays 95% of the time that she’s at home.
Andrew takes Poppy to work with him every single day. He’s been doing it since she was a puppy, and they both love it. Each morning, she hops in his car and off they go.
Poppy lays on this little pillow under his desk all day. When clients and staff members come in and out, she just stays there quietly. Clients never know there’s a dog under there. There are perks to owning your own business…and bringing your dog to work every day is apparently one of them :).
Occasionally, she’ll come out for some fetch…
…or to chew on a bone.
Kensington ran out to greet them after work. (FYI: I was yelling at Kensington to get in the house as I took this picture. It was 20 degrees and she’s barefoot and in short sleeves!).
Poppy comes in and says hello to everyone.
She’s walking to her spot under the bed.
As I’m making dinner, she brings me her dragon for fetch.
Now, she’s listening to me tell her that I can’t play fetch now, I’m cooking dinner.
It’s 9:50 and she’s looking at me still awake saying “come on mom, isn’t it time for bed?”.
And so, we head to bed. Her under the bed, of course :).
That’s it! That’s our Poppy Popsicle. She lives the most exciting life ;). For exercise, Andrew either walks her or he rides his bike and she jogs next to him on one of those dog jogger pole things (you know, you attach the leash to it and it to the bike). I didn’t document exercise pictures because it was too cold for me outside!
Hope you got enough Poppy today!
And Psssssst: don’t forget about the engraveable stuff too!
