Poppy Green is always 'manicuring' her claws, she 'files' them on the patio and doormat, chews and licks them [I'm just waiting to see if she demands nail polish ...!] She has lovely claws and has never needed them clipped. Unlike her big brother who has to have mud cleaned out and clipped.

Frozen peanut butter filled 'Kongs' help Poppy, the licking is soothing and by the time it's finished, it has helped settle that initial anxiety when leaving. It's a bit heavy on the calories, but as an occasional treat it worked.
We thought Poppy Green would love a companion, but would not be very gentle with a puppy. When she had been speyed we looked for an older dog and were lucky enough to get 4 year old Oscar from the Doodle Trust. Despite him having treatment for mast cell cancer it was the best decision for us all. No...
Well done Lucy! Oscar Green is a few months ahead of you and making up for lost time really enjoying life to the full. I don't know if it makes them even MORE precious, but I still get teary when I look at him and think how poorly he has been and how fit he is now. They put up with so much without u...
Our Oscar Green is still having ongoing treatment for mast cell. We don't know if it will ever be a cure, but we do know he is enjoying life and spreading the joy! It gets easier to live with... our early days with the news were emotional as we has only had him from the trust a week when the results...
Hi, yes it was Oscar Green who's insurance got passed on, he came through the Doodle Trust, so we were put in touch with the previous owners because the Mast cell was discovered a week after we got him. The Trust would have also helped out if needed. Tesco's pet insurance were very helpful. Oscar is...

If your garden is too big to secure completely why not secure a section he can be free but can't get out. We have a four and a half metre post and rail fence covered in chicken wire as the dog run from the back door which keeps the rest of my garden [and the cats and rabbits] safe from being doodled.

Well! we is SHOCKED that any-one should fink we should sleep anywhere ELSE! we has lovely snuggly blankets on our sofas, and if any smelly HOOMANS want to sit down, they has to tuck them back a bit so as not to steal our lovely fluffy fur what we has carefully spread to make it even more snugglyerer...
Poppy Green, pats my arm or shakes it gently if I ignore as though to say 'Muuum....Muuum......' then I list the usual requirements until I hit the right one..Rubby tummy? game? biscuit? garden? then I get a kiss and the waggy tail as a reward! I'm sooo well trained
We played a lot of hide and seek with toys, treats, human sisters....gave Poppy magazines to rip up [take the staples out] to take out her frustration, endless hours of soothing 'rubby tummy', a bit tricky around the stitches, gentle walks in the front garden to look at the cows over the road. Good ...
