Let's be honest. Is anyone here for anything other than dog photos?
Most certainly not.
We've decided to stick with Poppy, but are changing the spelling because random i-for-y swaps in names makes my eyelid twitch. It's been her name since puppyhood, she responds really well to it, and honestly, it just kinda suits her.
(A friend who was lobbying for keeping the name sent me like a dozen separate texts yesterday of increasingly ridiculous nicknames and I have to say, she laid out a compelling argument. Especially when she started changing "pop" to "poop.")
Beau is loving his playmate, but will let you know the second you are giving her too much attention. Usually by just climbing on top of her head and being like, "What other dog? Is just me here, sittin' on a dog-shaped pillow."
To which Poppy responds: "This is fine. Everything that happens is fine."
They play and play and play and then sleep and sleep and sleep.
(I feel like Poppy's presence really brings out the Ewok resemblance in Beau for some reason.)
Okay, any more photos and this site will never load and perhaps finally burst at its scotch-taped rickety seams, so I will stop. For now. Not to be a big ol' tease but I MAY or MAY NOT have gotten a stash of photos from Poppy's foster mom, taken when she was super brand-new and tiny. So we will have to talk about those, and ALSO I did go and get my big tattoo done last weekend, which was the most exciting thing for about 36 hours until the next most exciting thing came along. (I spotted it in the mirror this morning and was like WTF is all over my back? Oh right.) So I need to unveil that and also I got a (used) bike that I actually am really loving and I'm starting work with a personal trainer at the YMCA (he was on sale!) and Ike's got an IEP meeting next week and gaaaaahhhhhhh who cares let's just look at one more photo of dogs.
(DEAD. Framing this one after I come back to like and crop my chipmunk cheek out.)
