Puppies And Poppies..

How big is Mollie getting now?

Mollie is just over 12 weeks old now. When your with your puppy all day everyday, you do not notice them getting bigger until someone mentions it. I can tell she is getting heavy when I pick her up though..

These photos were taken on Tuesday when she had her first visit to the woods. She loved it. I let her off the lead when no one was around and we had a fun little run and a game of hide and seek.

I love to see the poppies out in bloom but trying to get Mollie to sit near them and pose was a little hard as she just wanted to run. So many dogs around for Mollie to chase at this time of day.

A usual 20 minutes walked to drop my daughter of at school,  is now at least a hour long. Mollie has her own little fan club where ever she goes. Every body loves her. People stop to stroke her. People stop to chat. People stop to pick her up and kiss her. People stop to tell me all about their puppy. People who have never spoke to me ever on the school run now chat.

Yesterday I walked by a couple who said morning Mollie!! and I can’t even remember speaking to them before. Everybody loves a puppy. Maybe they would change their mind if they looked after for half an hour when she has her mad biting spree..

      Aww thank you Annie, Aww bless :):) my children have always been wary of dogs so we though a dog would be good to help them around others, Mollie is so much fun 🙂

    I'm loving the poppies out at the moment. I saw a whole field of them the other day but it was impossible to stop the car anywhere!

    Gorgeous pup – they grow so fast, make the most of the tiny cute phase :)I love those poppies and the way they've put themselves in exactly the right place!

    lol, every time we go out into the desert it's always 'Bob's here' or 'hello Bob' I don't think anyone actually knows my name
