Getting ready for the off.

Hello all.

Just to let you know that I have recovered from my surgery. I am frisky and full of vigour. Mum has taken up knitting cold weather dog jumpers again. here is a picture of Abbey in her jumper.

We will soon be leaving the boat marina after mooring up for the winter. We will be heading out on our travels once more. This time we should be away from home for about 8 to 9 months.

We have lost a family member. Jasper the cat who was my arch enemy when it came to my favourite basket has passed away at the ripe old age of 29 years 11 months and 7 days. Everyone was looking forward to celebrating his 30th birthday in a few weeks time.

Jasper passed away peacefully in his sleep and I now miss having him around. he has been laid to rest in his favourite sunny patch in the garden at home. Mum and Dad are also a bit sad, but we have loads of memories of him, so he will never be forgotten.

More news later when we get under way on our Spring - Summer - Autumn cruise 2012.

Yip Yap

  1. We have been away a lot recently - and are slowly catching up with all our friends. We are glad Abbey has recovered from her surgery - and back to her wirey ways. We love the jumper. Paddy wears jumpers - and our Mum might have to talk o your Mum about how to knit them - we use to buy them from a charity but they stopped doing them!

    We are so sorry to hear about Jasper - hugs to your family from us.

    Lots of licks

    Sally, Paddy and Klaus

  2. Poppy you've just won a holiday to Boneo Regis..

    Question: Was it you who's the 60th follower?

    If you don't know what the hek I'm prattling on about, just say & I'll go away...


    1. Hello Heth.

      I know exactly what you are talking about!!! There are not many dogs who can write or use a computer. However, I only write for my special friend called Heather! She is six years old and my dads grand daughter who lives in far away New Zealand.

      It may be just as far away as Bonio Regis.

      Can you guess who my dad is?

  3. Hello Poppy,

    Yes I put 2 and 2 together & actually got 4 for once. So I know who daddy is..

    Aw, your special friend has the same name as me & I have a grandson who lives in Germany. It's not as far as New Zealand but we don't see him very often :-(

    PS Bonio Regis is a real place,but due to cutbacks it's only open on Sundays. So its best to stay at home with dad.

    Yip Yap
