Introducing Poppy - Kennel name Weyahead Princess Poppy (Mum is Whisk and Dad is Elmo)
Poppy is our second Border Collie and is now 16 weeks old (as at 28th Feb 2014). She's changing in nature every week as she develops from a soft, tubby pup into a leggy, active, water-loving, frisbee and ball-loving young lady. Her best friend is our black cat Pushkin (7) who keeps Poppy in her place if she's bothered (which is seldom). Interestingly when she does 'bat' Poppy, it's with an unarmed paw (claws not drawn). They've already been spotted on a number of occasions curled up together.
While we were waiting for Poppy to have all her injections (before she could go out in public), I bought a HUGE plastic bowl from the $2 shop (at $22) and it is still being used several times a day for water play on our deck. Small floating dog toys have been a hit in the 'pool'.
Poppys just completed a 'Basic Manners' class and is just about to commence a 'Refined Manners' class where another owner (described her walking as very 'ladylike'). She's already showing signs of being very interested in agility (loves running up the stairs and across the puppy agility gym at great speed) so we're going to pursue this now at a fun level (which takes into account her age and growing bones) and perhaps more seriously when she gets to the correct age.
Thanks Gavin for breeding such a happy, healthy and carefree pup!
