Life Wif Poppy

Bear wif us as some posts are a little out of order, things are a little crazy (new puppy, toofer problems for mom, and work issues for mom).  But here are some little odds, ends and pics from the first few weeks wif Poppy in da house.

After the vet (7-2-18) Poppy got to rest the remainder of the day.  She isn't going to daycare yet, as momma doesn't want to frighten her with too much change.  We put up a tv in the living room at Poppy's eye level and set it for E!  So she can keep up with the celebrities and left out chewies and toys.  When we got home that evening she had eaten well during the day and done her business.  After a good 10 minutes momma finally was able to leash her with my slip lead.  Then we ventured outdoors and she did her business.

(please ignore the messy house...please please!)

As bedtime rolled around we put her in the kitchen with her crate just as we had done on the first night.  But instead of going night night she cried for us to come get her.  Even though she was scared of people  she wanted to be near us.  Momma held out as long as she could and I told her to let Poppy free.  We got her a little fleecie from the closet and put her in bed wif us and well it was a cute sight.

 The next morning we loaded up and headed to the Walmart Pick Up line.  She has impeccable car  manners.  By the end of the trip she even walked over and put her paws on momma's arm.  #PROGRESS

As the days came and went, Poppy got more brave.  Soon enough she was coming right up to momma when we came home at night, following us around the apartment and even jumping up on the recliner/couch when we were sitting down.  Now she is even coming when called or if she gets scared sitting in place for momma to come pick her up.

Right now we are working on sitting for treats.  You never know she may be a trick dog like me one day.

She is definately a snuggler.  Heres proof.  Here we are helping momma recover from her root canal.  Shes been having lots of mouth pain due to an infected toofer.  Sadly she wouldn't let us lick it to make it better.  Silly momma!

Here we are comforting her after she had to have more dental work on her gums because the infection got worse.  Update: now that she had the work on her gums and got a super powerful antibiotic she is doing much better.

Just in the past few days shes let her tail down, literally.  She kept it tucked so hard the feathers were up between her front legs.  Her tail is quite cute with all the flowing feathers.  I may need to look into tail extensions.

We have been taking her to Doggy Nannys to help her get used to new people and places.

After a trip to pick up furniature for the apartment (another post on that soon), Doggy Nanny said that Miss Poppy could come to daycare when ever she was ready.  Mommas heart was full of happiness.  Doggy Nanny reported to momma that she acted well.  :)

She loves the doggy tv.

New people still frighten her but shes getting used to daycare life.  Shes met Doggy Nanny, Grandpa, Aunt Missy, Aunt Brenda, Aunt Net and Cousin Cody. 

Momma has been research CC care.  There are two camps of thought.  Using sunblock or light colored clothes to block the sun.  She decided to try the clothing option since we do live in Texas and its hotter than blue blazes.  Like the week I am pawing this we are sitting at 109 degrees.  Icky!  Well momma was talking about it on facebook and Aunt Brenda said she had a box of onsies that were not being used.  She is a 0-3/3-6 month in baby clothes.  They fit her nicely in the chest and  are long enough to cover her back and bum bum.  Thanks Aunt Brenda!!!!  Haul photo coming soon. 

After seeing she wanted to look out and see the world momma put a car seat back in for us.

Sadly we was de-carseated cause I am too rambuncious and stepped on Poppy.

What I can't help it!  Life excites me!

We have been shopping again.  Here we are at TJ maxx.  Didn't find anything interesting here.

But in the parking lot momma got a fright.  She saw this decal out of the corner of her eye and jumped.  BOL

Other than that we have just been including her in our normal activities momma scoops her up, leashes me and we go about our business.

Oh before we go.  Momma updated the kitchen nook.  It got Poppied!
