Who's Stinky Now?

It is the peak of summer here in the Philippines and as you can just imagine, it’s boiling hot... too hot in fact, that I can practically cook eggs on the pavement.

On a normal occasion, the hoomans would give us a bath every Sunday. This of course, is a little too much for most puppies we know. But here in the Philippines, where the temperatures play at 30º Celsius degrees during summer, who can blame us if we ask for a little more water than usual?

The hoomans gave Poopie a bath last Sunday and as expected, she smelled fabulous.

The hoomans were supposed to give me a bath too but sadly, manang had to attend a baptismal ceremony early in the afternoon and had deferred my usual bath until next Sunday.

That’s all fine and dandy considering that I still have my trusty fur deodorizer. A few spritzes here and there and I’m all sweet smelling and fresh.

But while Poopie and I both smelled like freshly picked flowers, guess who raised the stink-o-meter ten notches higher?

Today marks the 3rd straight day that she did not take a full bath (manang: I did take a bath! I just didn’t wash my hair!)… pretty icky, I know… tsk tsk. And all for what, you say? For fashion (read: vanity), what else?!

The hooman had something called an ear reboned (manang: it’s hair rebond, Aki!) last Monday and as result, she had to let all the chemicals settle in for a few days. She was already supposed to wet her hair today but her obsessive compulsive nature kicked in so she decided it was too soon and extended her stinky lifestyle for one more day.

At the peak of this travesty, I would normally consider resettling myself somewhere far and out of reach, but since the hooman provides for my food, and frankly, Poopie and I do not have enough resources to afford a hotel room on our own, we resorted to less drastic measures.

In any case, I’m just glad our computers don’t have smell-o-vision.


Poopie and I would like to ask for your prayers for manang. She will be going to the doctor for a check up tomorrow to have her intestines checked. She had always been having big problems erm… defecating… usually once in three days, and with very abnormal "results". It has come to the point where all forms of laxatives and fiber supplements are no longer effective. Please help us pray that her test results would turn out normal and that she will be back into our loving home immediately.

Hi Aki! I don't like it when my mom's hair smells stinky, either. We'll keep you in our thoughts that the tests come out okay and hopefully the solution is something simple.

Your pal,

Aw...I'm sending lots of slobbers for your human - hope she gets good news from the doctor!

Hey, Aki, you know I usually get bathed every week too? And I don't even have the excuse of living in a hot place! But my humans like me clean and smelling nice, so they like to bathe me often...especially if I have just rolled in rabbit poo in the park! :-)

Just found your blog! It's hilarious! My momster was laughing so loud she woke me from my nap! Sorry to hear about your manang - hopefully her -um- digestive system will return to normal soon. Oh, and my grand-momster did some perming and it smelled like horrible rotten eggs - then the hoomans complain about my breath?! Crazy, I tell ya!

Dino and Family said...

Poopie is all fluffy and smelling great! And Manang's hair is look really shiny and straight! My mommy shares your Manang's pain and she has a few tips for her: drink lots of water and eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. The current fruit that works for her is guava! Oh and don't forget to exercise and don't sit too long or strain too much on the toilet bowl. Love, Dino
