Happy New Year!

Ma gave me the best gift to end the year on…A visit to the dog park in Oaks! Wow! Whee! What a blast!!!

at the head of the pack

I’m in the lead with my new friends Daisy and Rocky hot on my heels!

Daisy and Poppy attack Rocky

We’re all almost the same age – 10 months to 1 year old.

who was here before us

We stopped to see who left us snow mail.

tussling with Rocky

Rocky went home first, but not before a last-minute tussle!

          • Oh! In Canada!!! Ma got me mixed up! She thought you were in England…Jeez, the help around here. We’re south of you in Pennsylvania. It’s almost always wet and chilly in winter and hot and humid in summer.

            I’m so glad you have a warm safe home, Nylablue and don’t have to catch those tricky mice for dinner anymore. You earned a happy spot with Miss Sherri Ellen.

            Hmm…a game of pounce would be great! Dana gets cranky with me after awhile.

            Gentle hugs,

  2. What a great way to wind down a year and crank up another one!! Tell Miss Poppy not to get TOO friendly with Rocky – The Red Man might be jealous!! Happy New Year to both of you from all of us at Casa de Canterbury (soon to be Worsham Street in Texas)…:)

    • Tell Red not to worry. Poppy prefers an older, more experienced man. Boy puppies are foolish!!! 😀
      I wish ALL of YOU at Casa de Canterbury a Happy New Year and safe travels to Texas. 🙂


  4. Wow Na, those pictures are so good, I can just *feel* the sense of excitement around being at the dog park in the snow and poppy making new friends!

  5. Oh PS -> Best New Year Wishes To ALL!!

  6. Aww Popster! Your friends are soo awesome! I wish I was as lucky here, no one is fun where I live and don’t bother going to the dog park in the winter! Hey btw, my ma has a little surprise for you over at her bloggy! :”

    • Kirby, I wish you were here too, ’cause we could play together in the back garden where it is fenced in. Toss on our coats and romp around all afternoon! Your Ma’s surprise is awesome, and we’re heading back over to let her know so!!! 😀 Thank you!!
