Artsy Poppy

While we are all feeling so badly for Maggie and the Brat Pack, we wanted to take time out for some fun stuff. Here's an artsy photo of me (Poppy). Ok, so it's not really an artsy photo. My secretary was trying to get a close-up of my beautimous face and she doesn't know why it turned out all blue. As you can see, I could never have won Stanley's beard contest. Mine is pretty short in comparison to a lot of yours, but it can still sop up lots of water and deposit it on the floor. Mom says Penny and I are driving her into the poor house because she uses sooooo many paper towels to clean up our dribbles. Recently, she put a big towel under each of our feeding stations, in the dog-feeding room, but it only helps a little. We are experts at getting a whole beard full and bringing most of it out into the kitchen. Our mom thinks that for every ounce that goes into our bellies, at least a gallon goes on the floor. Penny dribbles the most because her beard is about 3 times as long as mine! Oh, yeah, and our poor Personal Servant (Dad) fills up Penny's water bowl about 10 times a day. She does drink a lot, but way more of it ends up on the floor!

My long beard cascades water everywhere! Mom needs to take out stock in paper towels too! And Mitch is just a messy drinker! Somehow he gets his whole beard dunked in the water and then he runs off shaking it everywhere! Oh well! That's just the way it is for us Terriers!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Hi Poppy,
The other day D trimmed our beards because she was sick and tired of water all over the floor, especially from Willow who manages to put more water on the floor than in her mouth....sigh.
Do you and Penny have your own personal water bowls or do you share. We have one big bucket inside and one outside between the four of us.

Hugs and tail wags
Noah Willow Tess & Lucy

Hi Poppy and Penny! I love your blog!

I think that's actually a pretty cool picture of you, Poppy.

Ha ha, I laughed when I read what you wrote about, having most of your water end up on the floor. As for me, I don't usually drip water from my beard, but I do normally have food stuck all over my beard. He he.

I hope you're all having a great New Year so far!

Hi Poppy,

I'm a dribbler too! Mom & Dad are constantly mopping up after me when I drink. Sometimes I fill my mouth up with water and then just spit it out on the floor. He he!

Your pal,
