Manang met up with some highschool and college friends yesterday and she got shocking news when she chanced upon manang R' in the mall.
We learned that manong Aki had been a naughty little boy back in Cebu quite recently. His nanny reported yesterday that he destroyed his harness (which means we’ll need a new one in 2009), his food bowl and his water bowl. I don’t blame him really, my brother said he’s rather bored there- not being able to sleep inside the house and play with the other dogs and all. There is no need for you pups to worry though, he is getting several minutes of play everyday but probably missed the amount of belly rubs and hugs that our hoomans give him. On the bright side, manang tin and manang R’ will be going back to Cebu earlier, which means that he will be back to his normal routine on Saturday — yay!
We also forgot to mention that we i.e. manong Aki, myself and the rest of the Hugdogs received lots of pressies from The Animal Doctor, Mommy Lilli and their gorgeous pups and kitty: Trudis, Moymoy, Jappy, Scarlet and Pussy.
Mommy Lilli and the Animal Doctor’s gifts for my brothers and sisters in Bacolod (and what an opportune time to be getting loads of Banjo soap! Now, this is what I call impeccable timing and a furfect present! *grateful grin*)
gorgeous Jappy’s gift to moi and the dashing Moymoy’s gift to manang…
and sweet Trudis’ gift to manong Aki…
We’ll we don’t really know what it is cos’ manang refused to let me open the pressie and just tell manong Aki about it. I guess we’ll just have to wait on Sunday to see what it is. (manang: of course, we want Aki to be the one to open his pressie seeing how much he loves ‘unwrapping’ them)
THANK YOU SO MUCH FURRIENDS!!!!!!
And to all those who may have sent us pressies or cards in Cebu, a big thank you! We will be getting them on Monday and will post about it as soon as we can.
Today is New Year’s Eve here in the Philippines. My hoomans capped the evening by giving me and my brother Batista a bath. Manang says that if I welcome the year fresh and clean, I would be just as squeaky clean throughout the year. I’m not so sure about that but it doesn’t hurt a bit to believe.
As most new years go, manang said that manong Aki and I should come up with resolutions for 2009, so I communicated with him telepathically and asked him what his new year’s resolution would be…
1. Refrain from chewing furniture, shoes and all other hooman property
2. Eradicate ‘accidents’ inside the house- esp. during mornings (I have the tendency to make a ‘mess’ if the hoomans don’t give me attention in my quest to win the coveted Stain Award *naughty grin*)
3. Finally do a big boy peepee
4. Minimize shedding fur on manong’s bed
5. Stop playing rough with Poopie (and chewing her pillow)
6. Devise new ways to get my hoomans to bring me to the beach often
1. Quit being picky with food
2. Quit rummaging through Gring Gring/Peachy/Choy Choy’s food bowls
3. Quit running out of the house without a leash
4. Learn to take in vitamins without much of a fuss
5. Internalize the real meaning of ‘NO’
6. Retain fresh newly bathe scent (so as to avoid getting more baths)
Now that we have listed down our New Year's Resolutions we are now all set for 2009!
Cheers for a wonderful 2008- for the tears and triumphs and for meeting new friends, celebrating old friends and finding future friends. We are forever thankful and blessed! Being part of the DWB community and meeting people like our Mommy Lilli and The Animal Doctor is indeed one of the highlights of our year.
May everypup (and your hoomans) be blessed with good health, endless outpour of love and happiness, lots of tummy rubs, kisses, toys and treats and longer life. Thank you so much for the love and friendship.
A GLORIOUS AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!!!! WE LOVE YOU ALL!
