Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas...

Did you all have a good weekend? I spent mine helping LS around the house. I went under the couch to scratch, I mean, scrub the floor, furiously. Then I moved on to under the coffee table. Oh boy, she sure missed all the important spots.

When I jumped onto the sofa and attempted to remove all the lint and make it smell as nice as possible, by the only way we dogs know how to, she shrieked "Not on my new covers!!!"

If she's going to be so picky at the way I clean...I might as well take a snooze on the chair.

A while later, she stopped by my chair and said "Gee Happy, you could've make yourself a little bit more useful around here, couldn't you?"

It's true humans get more cranky at this time of the year, isn't it?

On another note, we would like to thank everyone for the lovely cards! We've put them in an album on the left side of our blog.

We're almost done with all our cards. We've sent out to all on the DWB list, except for a few which we did not have the email address. Some of our emails bounced back though. Perhaps there's a possibility they ended up in some of your junk mail. So if you did not receive from us, here's one for you.

Wishing Everyone A Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

Thankful Thursday


I'm thankful for a breather yesterday. Although a short one, it's really refreshing. At times that's all we need, isn't it?

Remember the cat and the kittens? They reappeared again at a nearby exit staircase. In a box this time. I'm not really a cat person but I must admit I was glad and relieved to see them. They have been at the back of my mind ever since they disappeared. I'm thankful to know they are fine.

The mother cat has been getting lots of cat food from neighbouring office mates. It's a funny sight to see bowls and containers of food and water at the entrance of some offices. But at the same time, it's certainly a warm sight, knowing that there are people who care. I'm thankful for that.

The kittens are growing really fast.

Aren't they adorable?


I'm thankful for thoughtful friends who have been sending us lovely cards. A big thank you! LS and I know how busy everyone can be, particularly in this holidays season. But knowing that everyone took the time and effort to share and spread the joy and cheer of this season is so heartwarming. This is a lot to be thankful for, isn't it?

Hope everyone is having a thankful time!

Thankful Thursday is hosted at Grace Alone.

You are not alone...

Recently I saw some of our friends sharing their kodak moments with all the flashes going off in their faces. All for the holiday seasons album. Here's mine. Misery loves company hehe....

Here's me trying to be co-operative...Ok, not really.

Here's me getting bored. I've lost count after 2 paws of clicks and flashes

Oh well, might as well snooze...zZZ...

Who says it's only the humans having it hard during the holiday seasons? Ours isn't exactly jingling all the way either. Don't you think so?


Here's a belated (again) thank you for these lovely awards.

Thank you, Mango!

We would like to pass it on to Chow Chow, Denise & Huskee & Hershey.

Thank you, Denise!

Thankful Time

LS :

This week I'm thankful for this story sent by a friend who thinks of me, knowing that I enjoy reading about dogs. I'm thankful for thoughtful friends.

After reading this story, I'm thankful for puppy size :-) Ok, my dog is not a puppy anymore. But she'll always be a puppy in my heart...

This is a terrific story. You will know what this little girl is talking about at the end.


"Danielle keeps repeating it over and over again. We've been back to this animal shelter at least five times. It has been weeks now since we started all of this," the mother told the volunteer.

"What is it she keeps asking for?" the volunteer asked.

"Puppy size!" replied the mother.

"Well, we have plenty of puppies, if that's what she's looking for."

''I know... we have seen most of them," the mum said in frustration...

Just then Danielle came walking into the office.

"Well, did you find one?" asked her mum.

"No, not this time," Danielle said with sadness in her voice. "Can we come back on the weekend?"

The two women looked at each other, shook their heads and laughed.

"You never know when we will get more dogs. Unfortunately, there's always a supply," the volunteer said.

Danielle took her mother by the hand and headed to the door. "Don't worry, I'll find one this weekend," she said.

Over the next few days both Mum and Dad had long conversations with her. They both felt she was being too particular.

"It's this weekend or we're not looking any more," Dad finally said in frustration.

"We don't want to hear anything more about puppy size, either," Mom added.

Sure enough, they were the first ones in the shelter on Saturday morning. By now Danielle knew her way around, so she ran right for the section that housed the smaller dogs.

Tired of the routine, mum sat in the small waiting room at the end of the first row of cages. There was an observation window so you could see the animals during times when visitors weren't permitted.

Danielle walked slowly from cage to cage, kneeling periodically to take a closer look. One by one the dogs were brought out and she held each one.

One by one she said, "Sorry, but you're not the one." It was the last cage on this last day in search of the perfect pup. The volunteer opened the cage door and the child carefully picked up the dog and held it closely. This time she took a little longer.

"Mum, that's it! I found the right puppy! He's the one! I know it!" She screamed with joy. "It's the right puppy size!"

"But it's the same size as all the other puppies you held over the last few weeks," Mum said.

"No not size... The sighs. When I held him in my arms, he sighed," she said.

"Don't you remember? When I asked you one day what love is, you told me love depends on the sighs of your heart. The more you love, the bigger the sigh!"

The two women looked at each other for a moment. Mum didn't know whether to laugh or cry. As she stooped down to hug the child, she did a little of both.

"Mum, every time you hold me, I sigh. When you and Daddy come home from work and hug each other, you both sigh. I knew I would find the right puppy if it sighed when I held it in my arms," she said.

Then, holding the puppy up close to her face, she said, "Mum, he loves me. I heard the sighs of his heart!"

Close your eyes for a moment and think about the love that makes you sigh. I not only find it in the arms of my loved ones, but in the caress of a sunset, the kiss of the moonlight and the gentle brush of cool air on a hot day.

They are the sighs of God. Take the time to stop and listen; you will be surprised at what you hear.

"Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.'

Hope your life is filled with Sighs!!!


I'm thankful that I can sigh! I'm also thankful that LS can always tell all my different sighs.

When I sigh in contentment, she'll cuddle me a bit longer.

When I sigh in boredom, she'll pay me a bit more attention. Of course, this sigh doesn't work all the time.

When I keep sighing after dinner, she'll know I want my dessert.

What do you sigh for?

Hope everyone is having a thankful time!

A Tag and Awards

A while back we were tagged by TiNKer Belle to do this. Sorry it took us so long to do it. *cough cough*

We're to comment about the last ten persons who leave a note on our blog. If you’re mentioned below, consider yourself tagged. We know this is a busy season, so if you're not free to work on it, consider yourself excused ;-)

I don't really have a good memory and LS says hers is like a sieve. Yup, everything just sieve through...hee...So we would like to apologise if we didn't recall some facts correctly.

We met most of them through serendipity hee ;-) Then there's DWB, a wonderful and warm community.

Here goes:

1. Thor - a handsome golden retriever who lives in Brazil. He loves girls as much as he loves the beach, the park and lots of fun.

2. Chef - a handsome boxer and a very talented one too. Chef has a passion for dog shows. Yup, our regular celebrity here. He has won some cool ribbons.

3. The Zoo Crew - a lovely family of danes and dachshunds. Kai, Willow, Echo, Lucy & Halo are an epitome of harmony. There's always something fun and interesting going on in their home.

4. Ruby - is a lovely mini dachshund and a genuine ruby. She's such a sweet girl, so you'll definitely like her the moment you meet her.

5. Raising Addie - Addie is a border collie/great pyrenees. She's training to be a therapy dog so that she can bring joy into the lives of everyone. She has a heart of gold! She sure does bring us lots of joy too whenever we visit her blog. She has a cute and fun sister, Zoe.

6. Bobby - we met Bobby through Ben the Rotti. Bobby always say that he's grumpy but we don't find him grumpy at all. He's really a sweet darling. His humans have kind hearts. Bless them for always rescuing and rehoming dogs.

7. Nancie - we met through Thankful Thursday. We are thankful for that ;-) Nancie is a strong person and she's definitely more than a conqueror! Her posts are always very encouraging and informative. She writes really well and she's very talented too. We love her photography and she has a knack for making beautiful homemade crafts and gifts. We love her bookmarks.

8. Rambo - is a tough and feisty chihuahua alright! He was once lost in a wood for 9 days and far away from home. He survived through it and came home unscathed. A true Rambo!

9. Denise - we met through Thankful Thursday. We are thankful for that ;-) Denise is truly a heaven sent angel. She has such a thankful heart and such an encouragement to all. We always think of her as one sweet, cute and lovable teddy bear. LOL! Sorry, that's probably due to all the cute teddy bears in your blog ;-)

10. Maggie & Mitch - a pair of airedales that simply love life! And life love them back too! They are one of our first friends when we started blogging. Maggie is such a sweet sister to Mitch, who always make us laugh with his antics. They have wonderful parents who happen to be very talented too. Their mom is really good in sewing, stitching and baking while their dad is very skilled at carpentry! There's always something interesting going on in their house.

Thankful Thursday


I've missed a few thankful posts so far. But I'm thankful for the time to do one this week.

Recently on a wet and gloomy early morning, I saw a rainbow from my kitchen window. It wasn't a perfectly arched rainbow, just a fragment that disappeared into the dark rain clouds. But it'll do. It's enough to lift up my spirits. Amidst the current gloominess. I'm thankful for the rainbow.

I took this picture minutes later. The sky brightened somewhat. The rainbow was still there.

Life has not been exactly normal around here lately. Or perhaps I'm the one not being normal. That's a thought. LOL.

This sight couldn't have appeared at a better time. It's such a great reminder and comfort to me. Life can be dark and gloomy at times, but not for always. Just like the dark and gloomy clouds, they always clear and make way for the blue skies.

The rainbow? Although not always a complete and perfect arch, but always a spectrum of vibrant colours. That should be us, isn't it? It's not easy but I'm still learning.


I'm thankful for an unexpected visitor. The doggie. I know...I know... I've been grumbling about him and haven't exactly been on my best behaviour when he was around.

Truth be told, I liked having him around. When the doggie was hanging around outside our door, I kept sniffing under the door. At times I sniffed so hard that LS said I snorted like a pig. Hee...

Although he's gone to live in his new home, I still run to the door to sniff...I guess I miss him.

LS said we should be thankful and humbled by this doggie's visit. LS said although she understands how tough a rescuer's work is, she didn't truly feel it till she experienced it. She said it was a humbling experience. Something to be thankful for.

Hope everyone is having a thankful time. What are you thankful for?

Now I Can Sleep Easy...

Hi everybody! Sorry we haven't been going around visiting lately. Will try to do so soon. LS has been really busy...What else is new, huh?

Just a quick update. The minpin has been adopted by a neighbour's friend. I think I'm more relieved than LS...

On Saturday, LS brought the doggie into our house without my permission. I wasn't so pleased about it. I got mad when the doggie peed on the floor and on my crate. So I retaliated by peeing next to his spot.

LS got mad at me but not at the dog, can you believe it? So I sulked for the rest of the day. LS must have felt bad after that because she went out and bought me some cake. Oh well...the cake was yummy though.

Yesterday LS went to work and found the cat and kittens gone. Neighbouring office people said they still see the mother cat going around but don't know where she hid the kittens. They said it would be somewhere safe so not to worry. For now, the cat won't go hungry as LS said she saw neighbouring offices putting bowls of food and water outside their doors too.

It was the same at our place. We saw some kind neighbours putting out containers of food and water for the doggie for the past few days.

Well, now that the doggie has been adopted and the cat has a safer place for her kittens, I guess I should be relieved.

I can sleep easier now...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! Hope everyone have a good celebration!

The cat and her two kittens are still there. The kittens are getting chubbier now. LS has been asking around if anyone is interested to adopt them. So far no good news yet.

On Monday morning when LS went to work, she saw a small doggie running around near the road. She didn't think much of it as there are plenty of dogs around. But the dog turned up outside our place on Tuesday. Poor doggie...think he must have either gotten lost or abandoned. Looks like a miniature pinscher though.

LS and a nice neighbour are feeding him for now till they locate his owner or gets him adopted.

LS has been going around gushing to everyone about how adorable the cat, kitties and now this dog. I'm pretty much not in the conversation except for the occasional remarks by LS that I'm not exactly friendly to the dog.

Can she blame me? I get scolding when I pee anywhere else out of my toilet. But this dog pees outside our door and LS didn't say anything at all. Hmm...

Isn't he adorable?

Let's hope they find a good home soon. It's sad to see them homeless.

Cats in the cradle

LS came home from work yesterday smelling different. When I started giving her an all over sniff, I saw a guilty look on her face. After a few more sniffs and long stares, she caved in and confessed.

Her confession?

Can you see the cat and her two newborn kittens?

LS said she went to work yesterday and came across this cat and her kittens right outside her office entrance. The cat must have given birth over the weekend as she remembered seeing the cat still heavily pregnant last Friday when she left her workplace.

LS said it's not her fault the cat chose her delivery room just outside her office. She's still wondering how the cat managed to get into the office building.

LS took some food and water for the cat but the cat didn't touch them at all. Will she be all right?

This morning when LS went in to work, the cat and kittens are still there. So she gave the cat some milk. She was quite relieved that the cat drank some of the milk.

Ok, I guess I forgive LS...As long as she doesn't bring them home and upset the status quo...How long do you think the cat is planning to stay at the maternity ward?

You know you're a dog person if...

LS was going through her files when she saw this. Yes, she has a file on dog humour. Some or all of you would've probably read it before as it was published quite a long time ago.

When LS read this a few years back, she went "Oh no, I don't think I do many of that".

But when she read it again minutes earlier, she went "Oh no! I'm doing most of that!!!"

I have trained LS well, haven't I?

Can your humans relate to these?

~ You can't see out the passenger side of the windshield because there are dog nose prints all over the inside.

~ You don't go to happy hours with co-workers anymore because you need to go home and walk your dog.

~ You don't think it's the least bit strange to stand in the back yard chirping "Molly, Pee!" over and over at your dog who tends to play and forget what she's out there for.

~ You go to the pet supply store every Saturday because it's one of the very few places that lets you bring your dog inside, and the dog loves to go with you.

~ You get an extra long hose on your shower massage just so you can use it to wash the dog in the tub, without making the dog sit hip deep in water.

~ You and the dog come down with something flu like on the same day. The dog sees the vet while you settle for an over the counter remedy from the drug store.

~ You not only have dog toys strewn about, but your guests also have to be careful not to trip on the dog jumps. (well we gotta exercise them in the winter somehow)

~ Your weekend activities are planned around taking your dog for a hike.

~ You refer to yourself as "mommy" and "daddy".

~ Your dog sleeps with you.

~ You'd rather stay home on Saturday night and cuddle your doggies than go to the movies with your sweetie.

~ You keep an extra water dish in your second-floor bedroom, in case your dog gets thirsty at night.

~ Poop has become a source of conversation for you and your significant other.

~ You are the only idiot walking in the pouring rain because your dog needs his walk.

~ You send birthday, anniversary and Christmas cards from your dog.

~ You like people who like your dogs. You despise people who don't.

~ You lecture people on responsible dog ownership every chance you get.

~ You keep eating even though you find a dog hair in your pasta.

~ You carry dog biscuits in your pockets all the time.
~ You make popcorn just so you can play catch with your dog.

Oops We Did It Again....

For not being law abiding bloggy citizens...heh....

LS has never been good at following instructions and rules. So I guess I'm only following the leader heh heh...

In our previous post on A Perfect Blend of Friendship Award, it was supposed to come with a set of questionnaire which we *cough cough* must have lost it along the way. Thank you Peggy for letting us know!

This award comes with a questionnaire. Here goes:

1. Do you have the same friends since childhood?

LS : Yes! One, that is. We've been friends since pre-school.
Happy : Yes! LS. Then there's Fifi and Chichi...Hmm...come to think of it, we've not visited each other in a while now. LS, when are we going to visit them?

2. What do you value most about your friends?

LS : Being themselves.
Happy : That they're so caring, loving and fun!

3. Are your friends your sounding boards?

LS : Yes.
Happy : Yes! Not only that, we also woof together when there are happy news and we all howl together when there are sad news..RIGHT?

4. What is your favorite activity to share with your friends?

LS : Dining together.
Happy : Barking at each other hehe... Visiting each other's blogs...

Since we've made a blunder on this, we won't make this compulsory to our friends we have awarded to. But...feel free to do this questionnaire. Everybody! Anybody?

We've also received these lovely awards from our friends. Sorry it has taken us a while to post them.

Thank you, Thor & Honey!

Thank you, Ruby!

Thank you, Honey!

We would like to pass on the awards to all our friends! We hope you'll accept them.

Have a good weekend everybody!

Thankful Time

LS :

I'm doing this post a day earlier, just in case I have to take time off from the computer tomorrow. I've hurt my neck and right now it's protesting at my sitting here looking at the pc screen.

This week I'm thankful for the time to stop and smell the flowers. Ok, it's just a figure of speech LOL! I didn't exactly do that, simply because there is only grass where I live. Not that I'm not thankful for grass...I am! The grassy greenery is so soothing to the mind and the eyes too.

I was looking through my files for some flower pictures for Mona's Mommy and I found these. No, these pictures were not taken by me. My photography skill is next to zero LOL! These pictures were taken by a friend at a local garden festival.

I've forgotten how beautiful Mother Nature's gifts are!


I'm thankful for the opportunity to say again how thankful I am for so many wonderful friends. Isn't it true we can never say enough of that? Recently, we've lost yet another friend, Girl Girl. She was a sweet friend and also my first hamster friend. I'm thankful for her friendship eventhough it was just for a short time.

A candle for you, dear Girl Girl

Hope everyone is having a thankful time!

Lazy Sunday

Hi everybody! Can't believe it's Monday again. The weekend went by so fast, didn't it? I had a quiet weekend. Spent most of it snoozing.

Aah...pure bliss...This is the way to relax...

Knock it off, LS! I'm trying to chill here.

How was your weekend?

LS :

The monkey wrenches are still around. But they have been on frequent long peanut breaks. I'm thankful for that. A breather for me and some peace too. Having inner peace makes us see things in better perspective, doesn't it? I'm thankful for that.

Have I said how thankful I am for my dog? I think I have. Sometimes her funny and mischievous antics can be a stress reliever, depending on how you look at it. LOL.

A few days ago, I was walking out of my bedroom when I stumbled upon Happy trying to paw at some pastries on the dining table. My first reaction was to reprimand her.

But the guilty look on her face plus the hilarious sight of her with two paws on the table and two back legs stretched to the max on the dining chair made me tried so hard not to laugh.

That wouldn't do, for she has to learn that she can't get away with that. So after reprimanding her, I gave her a treat. And then I had a good laugh. Thanks Happy, for some light moments.

Happy :

This is NOT ME in the picture below.

But I was caught in the same situation few days ago.

Attempting to paw at some pastries. On the dining table. With my two front paws in exactly the same way and my two hind legs on the chair...Can you picture it?

I was just a paw away from them when LS walked out from the bedroom. I was bracing for her famous "Who's a naughty girl?" but instead, she said "Feeling hungry, Happy?"

I know I've just turned 6 few months back and as we get older, we tend to lose a bit of our hearing. But do we start hearing things too?

Ok, LS did reprimand me but she also gave me a cream puff after that. Yummy! Yummy! Yummy!

So...I'm thankful that LS was being magnanimous about it. Have you ever tried to reach the dining table? Did you succeed?

Hope everyone is having a thankful time.

A Haunting Weekend!

Hi everybody! Did you all have a good weekend?

With LS busy lately, I was so happy to get away from my busy time of doing nothing to enjoy the pawsome halloween pawty put together by Asta, Eric and Lacie! It's my first time attending a halloween pawty too! What a hallo-screaming time it was, wasn't it?

Asta's Mommy made me this bumblebee costume. (Thanks to LS, she toadally forgot) Thank you, Asta & Mommy! You're the best!

Can you see me in the picture?

Our dear friends had given us these lovely awards too. Sorry it took us so long to post them and say thank you.

Thank you Thor!

We would like to pass this award to Addie, Chef, Denise, Deetz, Eric, Huskee & Hershey, Mango, Peggy & Friends, and Ruby.

We would like to pass this award to Asta, Angel Lacylulu & Rocky, Denise, Girl Girl, Lorenza, Maggie & Mitch, Deron, Nancie and Thor.

LS :

Once again, this week I'm thankful for the time to do a post. Sorry I have not been around to visit much lately. Things are a bit rough at the moment. Even right now I'm struggling with this post as it is. LOL! Not sure why my blogger page keep getting disconnected after every other sentence I typed. I have no problem with other websites though. Hmm...Any idea?

I've been at the receiving end of plenty of monkey wrenches lately. This morning I had a rather testy time dealing with some people. I have to admit I was ready to throw back a couple of wrenches. LOL! Oops! Then out of the blue these words popped into my mind.

"If life throws you monkey wrenches, tighten nuts and bolts with them"

I'm sure we all have heard of the saying "when life hands us lemons, make lemonades out of them". Right, but I don't have a creative mind and I'm never good with words. So where did that come from?

Something to be thankful for. A reminder to stay in perspective and change my focus. I felt quite a lot better now. I'm thankful for this. So I'm going to find out what I can do with the monkey wrench.


I'm thankful the diapers were finally off few days back. Phew! I'm also thankful that LS brought back some lamb chops for dinner few days ago. She's been giving me some of it. Yummy! Now I'm eyeing the extra leftover gravy. Do you like lamb chops?

Hope everyone is having a thankful time!

Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9


I'm thankful for the time to do a thankful post this week, although it's a day earlier. Of late I've been rather busy and altogether missed doing a thankful post, which I've very much come to enjoy doing. So here's a little break of convention *cough cough*

Having a loving mother is such a blessing. Having another person who became close to being a second mom to you is a double blessing. I had that. For she came when I was so far away from my own mother. Even though she was here just for a season of my life, I'll always be thankful for that. Sadly, she lost her battle with breast cancer.

As October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, here's a tribute to this special woman. And to all who had fought and is still fighting. Have courage.

May their cups runneth over
with our thoughts and prayers


I'm thankful that some of our doggy friends have been able to sniff out cancer. Although it's a small percentage and more research need to be done, it is still quite a breakthrough. Do you think dogs can sniff out cancer?

I'm also thankful that we doggies have an incredible sense of smell. To think of all the lovely smells we can sniff! My favourite would be the yummy aroma of bacon. What's your favourite smell?

Hope everyone is having a thankful time.

Nappy for Happy?

Hi everybody! Hope everyone is having a good week. It has been a crazy time around here. LS is rather busy. Sorry we haven't gotten around to visit much. Sure have missed everyone.

I've been rather bored too. No walkies, not much playtime with LS and worse of all, on diapers the whole time!

But I did have an entertaining time watching LS trying to explain to a neighbour about the bag of diapers she lugged home from her shopping hehehe...

LS said it was a bit of a misfortune to bumped into this nosy neighbour while she was carrying the diapers in a transparent shopping bag.

The lady was eyeing LS up and down, mostly looking very hard at her tummy. But when LS said the diapers were for me, her eyes nearly popped out. Wonder what she thought of LS.

I decided to rescue LS after seeing that she was starting to get a bit flustered without knowing how to cut short the conversation. The lady is known to be not so easily shaken off.

So I did what we doggies would do in times like this. Barked my head off. So LS told the lady she'd better go in before the whole neighbourhood heard me.

LS said she owed me one. So I'm preparing her a list for this weekend. I deserve lots of yummy treats, don't you think?

Have a great weekend everybody!

We're back

Hi everybody! Looks like LS and I have been missing for a bit here. LS has been busy with work. Then she was off for a break and after that she caught a bug. So she couldn't find the time to help me with the computer.

I've been busy too. Busy with nothing. Have you ever been busy with nothing?

Remember this picture a while ago? Well, the diapers is back on again. Sigh...

This is long overdue...oops! We'd like to thank our friends for these awards.

Thank you Abby! Thank you, Hershey & Kaci!
Thank you Cocoa & Barley!

We're quite behind in catching up with everyone. We'll be going around soon.
