Hi, I know it's been awhile.  As you know I lost my 16yr old dog Jasmine at the end of June, which was a shock after already loosing an Aunt, Father in Law and my Dad already this year.  Towards the end of July we decided to buy a toy poodle.  We picked her two weeks before.  Then when we picked her up she seemed quiet which is normal.  She was 8 weeks old and we called her Poppy.  That night she wouldn't eat, we took her to vets who said it's just nerves.  By the next day she still hadn't eaten and we had been shringe feeding her all night puppy milk.  They took her in to the vet hospital.  She was there longer then she was with us and after 4 days she passed away with aneamia due to a blood disease. She also had complications of a bleed in her liver and after surgery she just passed. It was a huge loss.  We were offered another puppy from the same breeder (who mum has been to for her puppy in May so she was a good breeder).  The puppy was almost 13 weeks and had been left as the people who wanted her decided they didn't anymore.  We wasn't sure but in the end we tried again.  She has bought so much Joy after so much loss. The problem was she was already named and knew her name which was Poppi.  We decided not to change her name. Poppy and Jasmine have been cremated and sit with their pictures keeping each other company.  Forever in our hearts and family. The pictures below are of my temporary desk downstairs while Poppi is learning the word NO!!!! lol.  Also are pictures of Jasmine during WOYWW 260 and near the time she died.  Also pics of little Poppy and our new puppy Poppi.
And of course if you would like to share your desk please pop on over to WOYWW :-)

Just about to put some colour on these journal pages.  Some teabags for a swap.
Bad lighting as in living room :-)

WOYWW 260 May 2014
Both pictures show how happy Jasmine was to be creating.  
During 2015 she had to stop coming up stairs.  So I used to try and do
most bits downstairs to keep her company. <3

Jasmine a few days before she died.  Such heart ache.  It was time.  She was almost
17 and so tired and in lots of pain.  She had lost control of toileting.  She also
put up with use but didn't really know us by the end.  We took this 
photo with her favourite toy even though she hadn't played with it in 6 months <3

Little Poppy, two weeks before we picked her up.
We had already fell in love <3

First evening in her new home.  She was so tiny. <3

First 24hrs in hospital.  We was allowed to visit in a evening <3

The evening before she passed away. Such loss <3

So sorry to hear of all your losses. That last picture of Poppi looking up at you is so similar to the pictures of Jasmine doing the same thing; the expression anyway. Hugs, may Poppi bring you joy and comfort. Sarah #13

Yes, what a year you have had! Your new Poppi is adorable! I hope she learns "no" soon so she can keep you company in your craft room.
Thanks for sharing. #39

Pets are truly members of the family. I still miss one particular little sweetie paws who passed away a couple of years back. They are special individuals, each and every one. My heart goes out to you. Your newest Poppi looks charming and sweet, very lovable

Crumbs Kezzy, I'd have been in a puddle on the floor. Just know you are not alone. Our pets have always been a part of our family. I'm still struggling with sadness a year on after loosing my boy Eddie, the cancer he had took him so quickly that it stunned me. I didn't have time to process that he was ill.

So that you know I can tell that Jasmine was well loved and looked after beautifully and I know from experience people that love their animals and make them part of their family are truly loved and are treasures to their human family as well as their pet family too. I hope the rest of this year is much kinder to you huni and your little Poppi brings much happiness and joy Karen x

Oh you have been through it, poor you. Pets are family, for sure and so I am very pleased to read that Poppi is bringing you joy. It doesn't for one minute make up for the otherlosses, but it sure helps the painful moments. Good to see you again, and I'm loving the idea of a genuine teabag swap!

Hi Kezzy, so sorry for the losses you have suffered. Our pets do indeed become family members, and how strange that your new pup had already been named Poppi. Was clearly meant to be. Have a much better week, Hugs, Shaz #3 X
