First Welcome Message

I am especially thankful to my influences, without whom I would be unique. They are women whom I identify with to the utmost degree. Firstly, the duchess of Windsor, a pug lover. While I, Poppy, would never cause a constitutional crisis, the duchess refused to abandon her pack (the prince of Wales). Secondly, Dorothy Wordsworth. The fears and motives of an unmarried, dowerlyless woman in the early 19th century cannot be too far removed from the fears and motives of a dog, today. Think about it. Plus, I love to gather sticks and sleep between people.
