Mimi’s Poppy

365 Journal Challenge:
For Day 2 in Noah Scalin’s 365 journal he asks “What’s your favorite animal? Use it as your inspiration today.”

Dogs are not necessarily my favorite animal but this little canine stole my heart like no animal has ever done before. I suppose it was a perfect storm of sorts because after taking care of this newborn pup for a short while our bond was forever forged. Poppy was my niece’s dog and I was awarded the privilege of looking after the little fur ball on more then one occasion. Sadly, Pop’s life was cut short last fall after an unfortunate accident.

For my nieces birthday last month I made her this picture in honor of our furry friend. Thanks for the cuteness, cuddles and carefree laughs Pop! xo

    I loved your tribute to Pop and your thoughts on the way he had touched your life, as they can. I too lost a friend recently with the passing of my siamese fighting fish whilst I was away on hols he developed fur(not really a good sign on a fish) I have felt his passing as I walk past daily is absent fishbowl I think of his little wagging tail when I approached him, and how such a small thing can give much happiness.

    Tears flowing, reminder no life is to small to make an impact.
