PQT..Poppy's Quote for Today

"...We know from the truths of evolution and ecology that we are all related and interdependent. Anthropomorphism (crediting animals with human emotions and traits) is, however, outdated. Rather we know that we are like animals."
(Michael W. Fox)
Mmm, I'm not sure thats much of a compliment.

Fishy Goings On......

Hi Food enthusiasts, Today Dad was having something called 'Sooshee' for lunch, He made a lot of fuss about it. Mum on the other hand steered well clear of it, I of course watched with interest, so intensely so that the moment a large portion hit the kitchen floor I was on it in a Flash. Dad had what Mum called a ‘Why me’ dance, a bit like I’ve seen the pigeons do. Well what a to do, it just tasted like raw fish to me, Dad never makes all that fuss about his fish bait. My humble verdict was, I’ve tasted better, .. actually Mum’s cheese sandwich smells pretty good.. mmmmm

Poppy's Quote for Today

Art is not about thinking something up. It is the opposite -- getting something down.
Julia Cameron

Canvas Art

Hi ..Today was a first, I placed my right paw forward for some pawtrait art. At First when Mum started to busy around, I got a little worried, cos she normally only lays things out directly in front of me, when its ‘Ear Cleaning Time’., as I was suspecting the worst, it came as a pleasant surprise to find out I was only going to paint some art.
Here's my first miniature canvas, I used acrylics, I’ve titled it,' Trick or Treat’, as I think this sums up the season, and the eternal dilemma life asks of us dogs.

Poppy's Quote for Today

Food is an important part of a balanced diet.
(Fran Lebowitz)
Very very important, I agree, and don't forget treats..

Wheat Free Menu

Well Mum and I, participated in an Etsy Virtual Discussion, a new experience. One of the topics was what do you like to see in Blogs, apparently its 'the food we all eat'. Now Mum couldn't see why anyone would like to see what she eats and knowing what she does, I can totally see why!! (Actually its a lot of Chocolate, and cups of Tea). Now me I'm a Wagger and a Shaker, and I like to pad with the pack. I am incredibly interested in what Everyone eats, and hopefully drops onto the kitchen floor. I am a Wheat free girl, so I have healthy treats that include carrots and apple slices. Here is some of my daily food Platter.

Apologies to my Blog Readers; I'm afraid I could only get Mum to take a picture of this type of food, as she doesn't approve of my outward bound foraging of natural foods like cat cookies, and wild snacks.

Poppy's Quote for Today

"In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semihuman. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog."
(Edward Hoagland)
Semi human, thats pretty insulting Eddie..

Poppy, Who am I?

This picture is of me with my human Dad.
I'm a black Labrador; and I'm sure I'm nine human years old!, I forget. I was Named 'Poppy' when I was a young Puppy, apparently I was nearly Named 'Tahlula', but my human Dad put his foot down on that one, Thank Goodness; mind you I think it would have been a good name for my showbiz career. I was born locally and had quite a few brothers and sisters, I never knew my Dad; but my mum was named 'Daisy', and I used to see my sister 'Flea' sometimes.
I live with my human Mum and Dad, and its a comfortable life, apart from my diet. I love food, but I have to watch my waistline as I get older, actually Mum watches my waistline....
I enjoy walks in the countryside, where one can always chance the opportunity to try new 'al fresco' food experiences, and afternoon power naps. Excuse me, that reminds me, my paws are so tired, time for the executive nap..zzzzzzzz
