Poppy of Thistleton

Our Best Little Pal Poppy
is 14 years old today
That's 72 in human Years!!!!

She's still such a pup
even though her hearing isn't so good
She has the sweetest personality a doggie could have
and always looking for treats!

Happy Birthday Pops.....our beloved Cairn Terrier!

Today would have been my mom's 96th birthday and it's also my brother Ken's birthday.
UPDATE - Just received the wonderful news that Laine is a big sister today!!!  Congrats to Scott and Nikki on the birth of their wee one - it's a girl!!!!
The 13th of June really IS a special day!

Poppy's favourite Treats (besides any table scraps she can find):

Puppy’s Golden Cheese Dreams
3 Cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp. garlic powder
½ Cup vegetable oil
1 Cup shredded cheese
1 Egg – beaten
1 Cup milk
In large mixing bowl combine flour and garlic powder.  Make a well in flour and gradually stir in the oil, cheese, beaten egg and milk until well blended.  Knead dough on floured surface for 3-4 minutes.  Roll out dough to ½“ thick.  Use bone shaped cookie cutter and place on lightly greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 400F for 25 minutes.

Till next time ............ I'll be baking a batch of doggie treats!!!

This is how they turned out - Poppy loved them - but then again she loves anything!!!!
Her tail waggeth at lightning speed!
Up she goes - now "give me that cookie already"!


  1. i love my baby girl!! happy birthday grandma and uncle ken!

  2. What a blessed little dog! I'm thinking that I should bake for Molly when I have the desire to bake. My hubby and I don't need any treats!

    Lots of nice memories and new memory making going on here today.

  3. I just know that your Poppy, with her puppy spirit, would love our cairn, Rory. Aren't they just the best!?
