Our dear Poppy turned 4 on April 20th and she celebrated her birthday with two weeks of walking on the beach and listening to the waves in Provincetown.
Here is her official age four birthday portrait. She was sitting on the window ledge in a bay window keeping watch on the comings and goings of neighbors. The wonderful Provincetown light picked up the blue cast from the glorious sky and used it to outline her white fur.
Her pose shows that she does have her serious and thoughtful moments ... ("Aren't you supposed to be preparing my lunch?")
She spent a lot of time in this window seat ...
Snoozing on the window ledge ...
Or curling up on Penny's lap since this was a favorite indoor reading spot. That's her waterproof Mambe throw that she's cuddled into.
The dog-loving staff at Bayshore/Chandler House were on hand to wish her a Happy Birthday and her personal staff of human retainers (that would be us – Penny & Ed) took her for many walks on the beach at low tide.
Except for the pesky delivery trucks and the beep, beep, beep of construction vehicles, it was a quiet and happy two weeks for the little Westie girl. She had to be shown the water at the bottom of the access stairs to the beach at high tide because we all know that beach walking is much better than road walking.
So here's a belated happy birthday post for our favorite Sunday Dog. We hope all of you find a happy place with fun things to do for your special dog's birthday or Gotcha Day!
