Yeah. Last week she tested out sheep poo. Hopefully she’s still just testing anything and everything, rather than getting a taste for it.

Poppy: Mummy why am I back on a lead?Mummy: Because you ignored me and had a good nosh on horse poo!Poppy: #^!?€$β€’*πŸ˜‘πŸ’©πŸ˜ˆπŸ’•πŸΎπŸ˜‡

Hmm, well it looks like it did claim to be the ISS, or an ISS, though it didn't really look like it. It's the 7647 Discovery space station one. I ought to get it out & put it on display somewhere - it lived on a bookcase in my London flat, but doesn't seem to have made it out since I moved. Nor has my Lego Ice Planet, or the Ferrari and Williams F1 cars.Yup, still love Lego.

Ooooh. I have one of their old space station kits, which wasn't based on the ISS.

Of course. πŸ˜‡πŸ’•πŸΎ

Forest walk, followed by lake walk. The park was quiet so Poppy was allowed some time off her lead. Recall was practiced, but she didn’t stray far from me. She definitely enjoyed the extra freedom though.


No mess detected. She goes in her crate while I’m out. She rarely complains & is usually asleep when I get back.She’s asleep now, after a walk in the forest, then a walk round the lake.

Just me and the puppy again now, my visitors went home this morning. Seems very quiet - & I think Poppy is missing her new friends, as she’s been rather grumpy and pesky today. She’ll be even more so when I go out to choir in a few minutes!!

The hellebore? Yes, they are very atrractive flowers, just a shame most of them hang their heads and face the ground.

I think one is enough. Especially as there's only me. My friend has two dogs & one is hers, the other her husbands, so no major rivalry.
