It's a while since I gave a bit of a pet update. Poppy is now 2 years old and most of the time she is pretty sensible
Needless to say poppy and Sky helped with a bit of haymaking.
Well it made a good playground anyway.
Poppy has a new mate now. Heidi who belongs to my brother in law pops round most mornings looking for Poppy. They enjoy a good romp together on the lawn.
Poppy took part in the village dog show. She came away with two rosettes. A first for dog with the waggiest tail and a second for best condition. It's probably best not to ask too much about the obedience class. Put it this way her and Farmer Daughter were doing well until she spotted me behind the rope!
Things haven't been so happy with the cats. It was rather a shock to find Socks having died in the flower bed. It must have been very peaceful but rather unexpected as he had seemed fine earlier in the day and was only 8 years old.
These photos show what a lovable and crazy character he was from very early on.
He adored Poppy although I think she just tolerated him. We will really miss him and his funny ways.
That leaves us with just his half brother Tiggy who is just a few months older. He doesn't seem to be too bothered by the loss and is revelling in being our only cat.
