Puppy Fix

I got trashed today, by a tiny creature not much bigger than a gerbil.
The newest dogs on the block are all small.
Lily is a Shih Tsu,

Cinders a miniature Jack Russell,
and Winnie is a cavapoo.
Hubby and I were going for a walk this afternoon and some of our neighbours a few houses down were chatting in the garden. We said hello and a little head popped up out of the stroller.
Poppy is a longhaired chihuahua of some 14 weeks now, and much smaller than Maggie was at 7 weeks. How could I not go over for a fuss?
I was invited to pick her up, and little needle teeth were trying to nip my ears. She is so gorgeous and playful. Hubby jokingly asked where I’d like the lead cut so that she could come home with us. We don’t want another dog but it’s nice to fuss and get trashed.
All pictures from the internet.

As we continued on our walk, we met up with some friends who have two much older dogs, but they too are small and were demanding fuss today. I got trashed again, and it felt good.
We always told Maggie we loved her best, but she was used to me fussing other dogs. Sometimes she might take umbrage and do The Elvis, other times she’d tolerate inquisitive noses and bouncy bodies, but we always made a fuss of her afterwards, and she seemed content with that. She was actually the first adult dog Poppy was introduced to.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    The best way to meet all the neighbors is to have a dog! We are dog sitting saintvi’s dog, Oreo, and all the neighbors want to know if we got a new dog! Sparky has been walking him and all the people who knew Ranger have to come over and greet Oreo.

    • Having a dog is a great ice breaker. I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t want to talk about theirs. Hubby couldn’t go five yards without someone wanting to fuss this little bundle of fur in his coat when we first got her. I can’t resist, but always ask permission first as you never know if the dog is anxious, excitable, protective or unfriendly. Maggie, bless her, got used to having to share, but we always told her we loved her best. And we did. ❤

    Have to fill up your puppy hearts somehow and other people’s pups are a great way. 😀
