Our Poppy



Our lovely wee dog Poppy died last night. She was two. Here’s some pictures from her short life.

She’ll be missed by us all as she was one of us – a companion, a protector and a friend.

We don’t know what it was that took her away from us. She’d been ill on and off since Christmas, but, each time, seemed to recover. The most recent photographs here were taken on St. Patrick’s Day, when she seemed full of the joys of spring.

She took ill again on Friday last and, despite going backwards and forward to the vets, she gave up late last night. We all had the chance to say goodbye to her and now her body lies buried in our garden.

Her spirit is running around the beach at Lagg!
