Oh Happy Day

I'm relieved the vet visit is done with. All good except for a small lump on my leg. The vet said nothing to worry about as it could be just fatty tissue. LS says she'll monitor it and arrange for a biopsy later. Hmm...I sure hope it's just fatty tissue.

Oh yes, the vet said I could do with more supplements now that I'm turning 8 and getting on with age... Me old? I bet I could show her what a good shape I'm still in by dodging her or sprinting off anytime at the clinic. If not for the fact that LS had me on a leash.

On another happy note, we would like to thank Sweepy for the lovely gift we've received a week ago. Lorenza and I won the contest by Sweepy last Christmas. It's a beautiful set of calendar specially designed by Sweepy. How artistic of Sweepy!

A package for me?

What a pretty packaging!

Hey good looking!

Look at these!
Each individually designed!

Now I can keep track of my days with this calendar,
since the vet said I'm getting old.

Thank you so much, Sweepy!

And they called it Puppy Love...

Thanks everybody for your feedback. I guess none of us have yet to successfully gotten out of the vet visits so far. LS is not budging from her decision either.

Since I'm not an expert escape artist (yet), I'm going to practise clamping my mouth shut at the vet.

What do you think?

Truth be told, I don't like my new vet. LS said I should give her a chance. Mmph...

I missed my old vet but he has moved a distance away. I still remember my first visit. It was love at first bite. Hee...

I remember him asking LS if I bite and she said not that she knew of. How naive of him to take her words for it! When he reached for me so enthusiastically with a needle, I reciprocated with a good chomp.

I remember him giving me a startled look while I looked back with glee. LS stared at me in disbelief, but quickly regained her composure to congratulate him for being the first to be bitten by me. Yes, she has a weird sense of humour.

I certainly wasn't the best behaved dog at his clinic that day. I kept barking at a big golden retriever, not realising that his bottom alone could muffle me effectively. I've also frightened a kitty so much that LS had to take me outside to wait for our turn. Oh boy, was I a really naughty puppy or what?

But still the vet wasn't mad at me. Instead, he gave me a treat, which multiplies over time. How can one not love a vet like him?

Do you like your vet?

Say Aaah...


All good, see?
Cancel dental appointment?

Overheard LS making an appointment with the vet.
How do I get out of it?

Time for Reflection and To Be Thankful

Blessed & Peaceful New Year!

“I have told you these things,
so that in me you may have peace.
In this world you will have trouble. But take heart!
I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33

I'm glad to be able to start off the year with a thankful post!

2009 has been quite a ride. But I'm thankful that God has been there with me through the whole journey. I'm also thankful that He has always provided enough. Enough challenges to be strong. Enough grief to remain human. Enough hope to be happy (these are borrowed words but they describe how I feel). How thankful I am to be able to look backwards with gratitude, upward with confident and forward with hope and purpose!

I'm looking forward to this year. A new time and season that God is bringing us into. Hope you are too.

a HAPPY dog

Hi everybody! This is the old me with a new pose on our old coffee table. Do I look pensive here?

LS said I was just napping. I was not. Guess she didn't know I was doing some quiet reflection and being thankful for everyone's friendship. We made it through another year of good and bad times, happy and sad times... The friendship and support by everyone for each other has been incredible. That is a lot to be thankful for.

May you always have
Love to share
Health to spare
And friends that care

Nancie has given us an award to start off the year. It's such an encouraging award! Nancie, you have been such an encouragement to us too!

Thank you Nancie!

We would like to share with everyone here as we think that all of you are More Than Conquerors too! Wish we could list down everyone's name here (like how Nancie did on her post) but LS says that would take quite a bit of time which she'd prefer to use it to go around visiting everyone. Yup, we are already way behind eventhough the year has just started. Hmm...not a good sign...

Hope everyone has a good start to the year and a thankful time!
