Poopie has a Dilemma

Hello dear friends! The Pooper Scooper here.

A lot of sheep and cows had been running around my head for a day now. As some of you might know, the Lenten Season is almost here and as a matter of tradition, our hoomans, specifically, manong and manang will be going home to Bacolod for the entire week.
Now you all know that Aki and I live with four hoomans in the Ilonggo House, so that leaves us with two more to keep us company, right? Well, that’s not exactly so. Manang Tin and R’ will be going with some friends to some place called Ginatilan on Thursday and they will be back by Friday.

Since we don’t have a car here (and the muscle for Aki) they would not be able to bring both of us along. They were so kind enough though, to make arrangements for one of their friends to baby sit us in the mornings, while Ms. Dams (Peachy and Choychoy’s hooman) will look after us at night. It would only be roughly two days, afterall.

So everything was set. Aki and I were supposed to stay behind and look after the house while our hoomans are away… Then Manang Tin and R’ broke the news yesterday. They said they will take me along. I am small and manageable and I can accompany them anywhere they go.

I am torn.

Shall I go to the beach with the hoomans and their friends and leave Aki behind? Or shall I stick it out with our nanny’s for two days and keep Aki company considering that I’m not any inch close to being a water lover?

What do you think, puppies? I would really appreciate (read: need) your opinion. Manang and manong will be leaving for Bacolod on Sunday afternoon. I hope by then, I have already decided.

A confused,

Ms. Poopie du Claun

That is a rather big dilemma you got there, Poopie...I don't really know what I'd do too. On the one hand,I'd be SOOOO happy to be going to the beach with Mom, but if I had to leave Kenji behind, it'll be quite sad to see his face when I leave =( Whichever way you choose, I'm sure you'd have thought it over with...=)

Hope you have a great weekend!

Ayyyyyyyeeee Poopie, mum always thought I'll be glad to be separated from stinky Barley until one day when she was so tired from work that she decided to bring me for a walk and leaving Barley at home. We were only a few steps away outside our door when I stopped, turned back and barked to Barley! So mum brought us out together instead and decided we 2 brothers shall always stick together!

So hmmm.. we would think maybe you two can just hang around playing and then falling asleep together (awww).

Wow it would not be a hard choice for me I would go, well then I would have to think is it the best thing for me, would I be better off not going. Only humans know if you are better off at home or with them. John said he has seen dogs at some places that they would have been better off left at home. Even fire work displays.

Maggie and Mitch said...

If one of us were in your shoes/paws, Poopie, we'd choose to go with our hoomans! We just LOVE adventures with mom and dad!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Hmm...Zeke and I both like going somewhere for a short time without the other one, but if it was overnight or a couple of days I think we'd start to feel like something's not right. It might be easier for the nannies to have only one to care for, though. My mom and dad are on their last day of a full week of caring for a neighbor's dog - going over three times a day, one or two walks, cuddle time. Since there was only one, she got all the attention and it was easier for them. It's a hard decision, Poopie.

See ya!

Dino and Family said...

Oh dear! That is certainly one difficult decision to make! I would be torn too! Anyway, I think you should just go, I am sure Aki will be in good hands. Perhaps next time they will take Aki instead of you. Have a great weekend!

It depends:

How nice do woo smell when wet?

PeeEssWoo: I'd stay with Aki!

the 4 Bs said...

what a dilemma. you can't be in two places at once. poor Aki would like you to be with him so he is not all alone, but you could have so much fun at the beach, even if you are just rolling in the sand. we are always together, so we would advise you to stay with Aki, but that's just us. you have to do what is right for you.


Snowy and Crystal said...

awwh Poopeie, we are sure that it isn't an easy decision to do, but we would vote for staying with Aki to keep him company ^_^

The OP Pack said...

That ia a very big dilemma for a little one like you - we think you should stay with Aki. But maybe the humans need to think about getting puppy #3 and then they could rotate who gets to go on the trip and still have two together at home:-)

Woos, the OP Pack

Hi, Poopie!
Sure you have a hard decision to make.
If I were you, I'd chose to stay with Aki!
Kisses and hugs

The Animal Doctor said...

hi poopie!
you looked pretty confused in your photo! i hope you've made up your mind, girl?

if i were in your paws, of course i'd want to stay with aki and keep him company,but...but i'm also thinking how nice if i could work on my tan while rolling in the sandy beach.ohhh, what a dilemma indeed. i hope you'll make a wise decision.

by the way, the secretary abandoned us last friday afternoon. like manang, she's spending lent in her hometown too. but i was surprised when she returned that same evening.

it turns out her airline ticket indicated her flight to be 5:00 which is in the morning and not afternoon! silly, silly girl!

she had to buy a new ticket which was almost equivalent to our one month food allowance. booo!

anyway, i hope your manang will come back soon, which is my same wish for the secretary. i hate typing using my thumbs!

send me an sms if you got to the beach, okay? poor koykoy if he will be alone though.

your galpal

Joe Stains said...

You certainly have a lot to think about, maybe you should make a list of Pros and Cons of each?
