@matigo Hoops, but for pierced ears. Doesn't take much to pull them out - but that's preferable to having a ripped earlobe.
@matigo It’s good things have worked out for you.
@matigo She's getting quite good at "snuggling" up & removing my earrings. 😈
Somebody is tired…
@matigo Poppy was one of only three and they had all been sold. A rescue would be a better option (& cheaper) but one is more than enough for me!!!
A bit warmer this morning than yesterday. Still can’t take Poppy out to the forest yet.
@matigo Two of them at the same time? Oooh no. I'm far too selfish to deal with two dogs. But I expect I'd be lonely if something happened to Poppy, ao I guess depends how long she lives. That said, assuming she lives a normal number of years then I would be in my late 60s…
@peemee That sounds good. I'm not a fan of ginger, but have to admit that it settles my stomach better than peppermint does. An irritated throat from reflux is just horrid - hope yours continues to improve.
@hybotics True. I am finding it hard work though. It might have been nice to get a slightly older pup, but people I know who work with rescue dogs said they wouldn't recommend I got a rescue because I had no previous experience of owning a dog. In future I'd consider a rescue though. This time I really wanted a Schnauzer so had to purchase one - they aren't cheap, although not as expensive as some of the trendy new crossbreeds.
@matigo That's the plan. Of course, after her snooze she reverted to hellhound mode this afternoon. And this evening I fell asleep in front of the tv, with her sleeping on my feet. It's exhausting! But I'm sleeping much better at night now, with her in the house. Can't quite believe how much of an impact she has had on me in just three weeks. I was so proud of how she behaved this morning.
