Thanking April

Today is the last day of April and it is during this day that we give a toast to a month of endless celebrations! Why, you ask?

Let us first take you to a week before Easter (I know… it took the hooman that long.. tsk tsk..), when a package of sorts first arrived at my Mommy Lilli’s (of the Animal Doctor) house in Manila. In it was something that manong ordered for me- my very own red Classic XL Kong.

This little number travelled far and wide to get here- almost three months, more or less. From a certain online store in the US, it was delivered to the doorstep of Mommy Lilli’s friend, who is also residing in the US. After that, it was mailed straight to Manila, Philippines, then by Easter Week, it travelled to Ilo-Ilo City with Mommy Lilli. A week later, Ate Jenny, her sister and manang’s friend and officemate, went to Cebu about 2 weeks ago for a seminar, and brought it with her and finally, after a long time of endless passing of hands, it finally rested (not in peace!) in the enormous paws of his forever keeper. whew! some globe trotter, eh? That almost made me leak. BOL!

My first Kong’s arrival came at a very timely day. It was manang Clavel’s birthday.

If you remember, this was the same friend of my manang Tin and R’ who was deathly afraid of me during our first few meetings. She was also the one who brought me to our Eden and Isla Romantica. So to you manang Clavel- A barky belated Happy Birthday!

Yesterday, we read about handsome Mango and his Singapore Sling. It was about the slipper toys that our dear friends, Huskee and Hershey sent him. Funny enough, a few minutes after the mailman arrived and dropped off a similar parcel from H&H. To make things more interesting, our very sweet and uberly fashionista friend, Lorenza, also received her pressie during the same day. What coincidence!

(sorry, we weren’t able to upload the pictures of our actual pressie opening- Poopie wants to make a separate post for it because she has certain "issues" that need to be resolved... I say, whatever. :p)

Poopie and I are loving the slippers so much. The hoomans, were of course, the happiest. Now this is one piece of slipper that we are allowed to chew on. BOL!

And just when we thought we had already reached the peak, manang R’ gave us the best news!

May 1 is Labor Day in the Philippines. It is a non-working holiday, which means, today is the last day of work for the week for the hoomans. No more waiting for Friday to end, tomorrow, we are officially on vacation! wooooffffyyy!!!

After days and days of mulling over the pooter and browsing countless websites of resorts and beaches suitable for a (doggy) vacation (and even heinous hooman plans of staying in a resort overnight without bringing the “puppies”- the shame!), Poopie and I are all set.

Ginatilan, here we come!

Note from Aki and Poopie: We would like to extend our slobbery and woofy thank yous to manang Joyce for allowing us to stay in her fabulous place and to manang R’ and Tin, for always finding ways for me to come to these beach outings! We love you all so much!!!

See you all on Monday! mwah!

Chester's Mom said...

Nice BIG Kong! My Kong is only a little Kong and I think I will be bringing this to Mom's attention tonight when she gets home from work. I am a big dog like you so I think my Kong should be big like yours. Do you not agree?
Enjoy your vacation and don't forget your new Kong!

Woofs and king kong sized slobbers,
