Miss Poppy Seed had a busy day. After a morning play session in the garden, I took her along on my weekly doctor visit. He loves dogs, and welcomed her into the office, letting her play with a squishy brain-shaped hand exerciser. She removed a section of the occipital lobe. Oh well! On the way home we stopped in a remote part of Valley Forge National Historical Park known as Pawlings Farm or Walnut Hill. Poppy enjoyed a walk in tall grasses, stalking butterflies. A sudden thunderstorm brought the trip to a close. Once home she turned on the devil, managing to squeeze through the dog pen gate posts. I lured her back with a piece of chicken. Do all new dog owners carry a supply of treats in their pockets? She wasn’t through. Once inside the house she terrorized one of the cats; the one who took a swipe at her. She remembered. After supper, I drove to Wal-Mart to buy two dog gates. Her freedom curtailed, she’s now settled by my feet. Hope she sleeps tonight!
