Purple poppy puppa pictures

Where I work, one of our lovely volunteers has generously made crochet poppies for us to sell and raise funds for the The Royal British Legion and today she popped in to top up the basket with the final few she has made.

But joy of joys she has also made purple poppies to sell and she had kindly put one aside for Moss. So once I'd paid for it, Moss wore it with pride! (well - she didn't care but I was delighted!)

Two other 'staff' dogs have also 'bought' poppies and tomorrow we are going to do a purple poppy puppa line up - dog biscuit-bribes at the ready!

    1. I agree - they did not know or understand what their sacrifice was for - such waste and sorrow๐Ÿ’œ

    1. Moss would not sit still, so she was being bribed with a treat which only served to make her even more wriggly!

  3. The purple poppies are lovely and I always think about the poor animals who lost their lives at war. Your model doesn't look too happy and I hope you explained it's for a good cause :)

    1. no my model does not have photos taken of her unless she is facing the camera - we tried the treat biscuit trick but she just wriggled and shuffled and was silly!

  5. Purple suits her! Lovely to see Moss wearing her poppy and I will look forward to seeing the purple poppy puppa line up. Have you seen the film War Horse? I have several times it is a good film but it gets me weepy every-time! What all those animals went through for us Humans and on both sides! Amanda x

    1. I was taken to see the theatre production of War House and sobbed my eyes out - I was so invested in the puppetry that when the ghost horses representing all the horses who'd perished 'cantered' around the stage - it just finished me off!
