Thought you might like to see these pics, we have had a good day. Poppy needed to be woken up this morning, well Dylan thought so, there he was, all eager to play and Pops was still extra sleepy and stretched out.

We walked to the vet to register Poppy and pick up pills for Dylan. We didn't wait around to see if her ear mites have gone (they smell fine), not with her being at the tail end of her season, the place full of Staffs and an estimated 90 minute wait. I'll go back tomorrow. I find it hard to walk two dogs so my neighbour came with me. Dylan usually pulls but is better with her and Poppy was great on the lead. A really enjoyable time.

She loves the sofa.

We came home and I couldn't resist bathing her. I had heard she loved a bath and she tried to get into my bath with me this morning! It was so easy compared to doing Dylan with his masses of locks. She has such a shiny coat.

Ash came home and a very loving, wet dog placed herself on his lap and he was smitten!

So glad it's going well and Dylan is getting used to his new sister :D

Poppy seems quite settled already!! Nothing like a damp soggy dog to fall in love with :eek:


Glad to see you have a table ornament too - we have coffee table ornaments :eek::rolleyes::D It's a great short cut between the chair and the sofa :rolleyes:

Lovely pictures Pauline, so glad she is settling in so well. You will have to keep your chairs pushed in to the table:p Can't believe your vets is open on a Sunday, you would not find that around here.

Yes, they are great for opening hours. You don't need to make an appointment but you might have a long wait. They have a 24 hour service now, assuming out of hours is more expensive but they do open Sundays until midday for the usual rates.

I changed to them because my old vet used to charge 10 for a repeat prescription and 5 for insurance admin, things you can't claim back on insurance :eek: When you give your pet pills every day for the rest of his life, this can be expensive.

Oh thats good. Mind you it does look like Dylan has drawn the short straw there and is getting pushed off the bed:p Looks like Poppy might be the boss and maybe its the photo but she looks a bit bigger than him.

Pauline, you take super photos, Poppy is gorgeous and seems to have settled in to her new home very quick. Lovely to see them both snuggling up together although poor Dylan looks like he's been squashed onto the edge of the bed.:p

Congrats, Poppy is stunning! Looks like she won Dylans heart too!:D

We went to the vets today to get her microchipped and she listen to her heart, everything is fine. She is not over weight according to the vet even though she weighs a hefty 10.55 kilos. She didn't yelp when she had the chip and the vet put the chip in lower than usual on my request.

She looks adorable Pauline......how has Dylan taken to his new sister?

Keep the photo's coming:-p

He walks round humping the air, even if he's walking beside her. Having a dog in season is hard work. The vet said one more week but he'll be interested for a while. She said she's willing to do it in one month. What does everyone think? Poor Dylan is exhausted.

Poor Dylan, didn't realise he was not neutered. Lets hope he loses interest when she is finished being in season. Should think a couple of months time would be Ok to spay her, you don't have to decide now, wait and see how it goes.

And on my table, only two chairs at a time fit neatly under the table. I have put cushions on the others but she could pull them off. Nothing else I can do.

She is a beautiful little girl. I love Black and Tans.

All of this phantom humping will settle down when Poppy has completely finished being in season.

Half way between heats is usually thought to be the best time to spay, and there really won't be any hurry once she stops smelling so interesting.

Thanks Margaret. I'll wait. As we spoke about on the phone, he can tell if a girl is un-spayed, season or not :rolleyes: She is doing her best to put him off without being nasty.
