Menosukhi Repawt

It has been a while since my PDSA pup, Poppy, sent a repawt card. It arrived last week.

For those who are more recently arrived at the MENObloggy...

The YAMster has a handful of charities she supports monthly, two of which are animal organisations.
The Guide Dogs UK where I currently sponsor Irvine; and the Peoples Dispensary for Sick Animals. 

Poppy has been getting my support money for a little over a year now. Both Irvine and Poppy are my second supported dogs. It is my way of sharing in pet ownership, as I cannot realistically have my own dog at the moment.


  1. YAM-Aunty....Poppy is beautiful and OMCs that golden smile and beautiful golden coat...
    Hugs Madi and mom

  2. So pleased to read that Poppy is doing well and is enjoying daily walks to tHE PARK.
    Toodle pip!

  7. that are such wonderful news about Poppy... and she is as beautiful as a poppy, that's for sure

  8. I took a look at Irvine, and have read this and you are a blessing to these dogs for supporting them. we have a guide dog school here in our town, they are seeing eye dogs for the blind. Poppy is beautiful and so glad the meds are helping her. my cousin had a German Shepherd named poppy back in the 60's and that dog ate the arms and legs off her sofa and once ate a roast that was meant for Sunday dinner. the name poppy flipped me into memory lane

  9. Oh my goodness what a precious one Poppy is! And the same can be said for Irvine. How lucky they are to have your support, and what a gift to you to share in their life with the reports you receive. The best win-win.

  10. Oh, that pretty face made me think of our sweet Samantha, 1988-2002. So glad Poppy is doing better.

  11. Good work, Yam. So many critters have been given up for adoption around here, due to owners going into homes...
