Poppy is a Shih Tzu puppy. She has soft white fur and truly is the cutest puppy around. Whenever her owners take her out for a walk, people stop to say hello to her and admire her beauty. But despite all the admiration that Poppy gets, she is not a pompous or snobby dog. She’s more than just a pretty face – she is humble, friendly and loving.
Her day to day hobbies includes playing with her toys, playing hide and seek with her owners, and running around the park. She is very active, and sometimes it’s hard for her owners to keep up with her. As many Shih Tzu owners know, it’s hard to get them to fall asleep. Add in the fact that Poppy is still a puppy who always wants to play – you can imagine how hard it is for her owners to tell her to nap!
One day, Poppy decides to get up early. Her owners have recently bought her a new toy, and all she wants to do is play with it. When she goes to sleep at night, all she can think about is waking up in the morning and playing. So when Poppy rises in the morning, she has a quick breakfast and plays with her new toy all morning, carrying it around with her wherever she goes. She is constantly running around, and her little puppy legs soon get tired, especially because she was up since 5 am. By noon, she starts to get sleepy and decides to take a nap. She settles down on her sofa, trying to fight the tiredness. Her eyes slowly droop shut, but she keeps opening them, determined to not fall asleep so she can play with her toy for a little bit longer. Eventually, the sleepiness takes over and Poppy can’t fight it anymore. She falls into dreamland.
