As you may have noticed our little Westie, Duchess Poppy Whitehead, can be a bossy little bit.
In part, that's because she was named after "Duchess Poppy" a very eccentric character in E.F Benson's Mapp and Lucia novels. (She's also named for the "POP" of the cork when we open a bottle of sparkling wine.)
After discovering this wonderful podium in Pemberton Square, we couldn't resist letting Poppy have a few moments to address the people as they passed by.
Never fear, she was not up there by herself. Ed was hiding right below ready to grab her in case she forgot where she was in her excitement of her address to the masses.
While we took this photo in fun, we are doing some serious research on this piece of public art for a feature article. Watch for more about that in an upcoming post.
