Posie is one of our dogs. She turned 7 in 2016, and is allegedly a Maltese + Pomeranian cross – although we have our suspicions that she might be part miniature poodle. She is feisty, wickedly smart and very vocal – constantly growling/braying as if she is trying to tell us things (and frequently, she is). Unlike Rupert who was adopted, she was bought from a pet shop as a puppy, which is something I feel extremely guilty about. Posie has been an incredible support for me through some tough times, so we have a very close bond.
Everyone in our family loves our dogs, but is secretly either Team Posie or Team Rupert. Posie is a bit highly strung and can have a difficult personality, but she does have her fans – whenever my Dad skypes from India or Singapore or wherever he is, he always asks for me to put her on camera so he can say hello! Posie is incredibly expressive and a bit hyper – the downside of that is that she isn’t very photogenic. But I’ll keep trying – even if I can’t capture a photo of her looking adorable, at least I will have a catalogue of her different moods.
