Brrrrr! Poppy is back in a jumper - if her ears are not warm I know she needs an extra layer or two.

Good girl, Poppy.

Peggy hops and barks at the sight of her cozy fleece. She hates anything that goes over her head. But as I type this, she’s trembling for the second day in a row. Sigh. Might have to get creative and will definitely not be clipping her so short again until spring. It’s not even that cold here yet. We’re still in the 60s.

Such a good girl to not chew on her fleece! And how on earth do you keep all your light coloured furniture, bedding clean with Spoo around!

I've never had any issue with staining from Evelyn either. I just don't let him on anything if he's wet and muddy, but I don't put any special effort in either.

I find white linens the easiest to keep clean because you can just bleach the heck of them when necessary!

But generally speaking, as long as we keep Peggy’s feet shaved, she’s not too messy. Sometimes we’ll give them a wipe at the door with a dry towel.

I really love Peggy’s topknot. It seems to have a bit of a curve, which I really like. Could you take a profile picture with her ear up so I can see how your groomer did the line from her eye to the ear? You can put it on your thread here or feel free to send me a picture. Thank you! 😊

Are these helpful? I took one with her ear relaxed and another with it pulled back. Peggy thought I was being quite rude. Lol.

Let me know if any other angles would be helpful. Maybe a profile shot in front of a white wall?

I don't have a practical reason like Spottytoes, but I'll take all the pictures of Peggy I can get!

Peggy had a busy Sunday. She went for a walk downtown, followed by a run in the field behind the library. And then it was home for a quick nap before running some errands with us. She quite enjoyed this one:

But two things made her very nervous, and they’ve got me scratching my head. First she recoiled from the smell of an open box of treats. They looked like fish skins, but turned out to be alligator. Peggy gave those a big NOPE.

Then we encountered this white freezer:

All the other freezers got a casual sniff. But the white one? She hopped back and then looked at me like I was nuts for touching it. ¯\(ツ)

Before we left, we asked her to step onto the scale. (Love that our pet food store has a scale!) She delighted me by carefully sitting on it without even being asked.

47.12 lbs!

She’s only gained about 3 lbs since she was 8 months old, and that was a whole pound in just a few months. I guess she’s filling out a little since her spay.

The pals had quite the play session today.

I saw multiple moments that could have turned into squabbles (or worse), but they’re so lovely with one another. Lots of little licks and other forms of appeasement.

Will be interesting to see if the dynamic shifts at all with the collie’s maturity. He’s only a year old.
