Suddenly the house is so empty with no one to give me treats, no one to secretly sneak onto the bed with, and most importantly, no one to update my blog!
Jie Jie says you've gone off to some far off place for business. Why didn't you take me with you?? =( I am such an unhappy dog.
Come back soon Mummy! Toto and I miss you.

The morning began nice and early. Mummy woke us up and started getting us ready really early. She says we have to get there early or we won't find a place to park the car. So we got there nice and early but there were other doggies who were even earlier.
Look! There were so may doggies and their family around. All kinds of breeds, sizes and shapes. So exciting. I had a great time sniffing furbutts and making new friends.
Mummy registered us for the walk and we got a goodie bag. There were loads of things in the goodie bag. There were dog food, cookies and even a nice leather lead. Personally, I liked the cookies best.
After the registration we hung around poking around and making friends while waiting for the BIG walk to start.
The big flag off! There were so many dogs angling to be the first to start off. It was like a long choo choo train of doggies and their family.
Both Toto and I started off at a run. It was great fun. We tugged at our leads to join the doggies in the front of the train. But of course, Mummy who was holding my lead couldn't keep up and I had to humour her by holding back. Toto was luckier. Jie Jie was holding his lead and the both of them ran to the front of the pack and lead the rest of us along the path. Doggies stopped every now and then to sniff at the stuff along the pathway and of course each other as well. Some even pooped making their parents stop to scoop up the poopie. And of course, all of us peed at one time or another.
Here I am roving around
After all the excitement Toto and I were just exhausted. At the end the both of us were just lying in the cool mud (Mummy wasn't pleased) and resting.
I am already dreaming of next year's Dog Walk when I can come here and do it all over again.

My Kor Kor acted the role of Kurt von Trapp in the play The Sound of Music. It is a story about how a noviate (her name is Maria) went to work as a governess for the von Trapp family children. The von Trapp family are a family of 7 (yes seven!) children. My Kor Kor is one of the kids. Can you imagine how many treats their father will have to get to reward them!!
Anyway the father is a mean old sea captain that treats his children like they were his sailors on his ship. Can you imagine he whistled on a loud whistle when he wanted his kids. My parents never did that to me and I'm a furkid!!
Well to cut a long story short, and this is where it gets soppy and eeky! Girls would like this part. Maria managed to win over the hearts of all 7 children. Not only that she made the mean ole Captain fall in love with her. Ha! Ha! Sick! Eeky! All this love stuff.
The exciting part only came when the Captain had to report to the Nazi naval place and become a Nazi Captain. This was all set during the big war that happened way before I was born. The Captain didn't want to become a Nazi so he and his family (Maria and all 7 children) ran away. They were chased by the bad Gestapo but they managed to escape over the mountains into another country.
Mummy says that Kor Kor had a lot of hidden talents. He could dance and sing and act! Wish they let me go and see him.

Then there are these little cages on the wheel and hoomans go inside them. Then the wheel turns taking the hoomans up up into the sky. Quite exciting. I wish I could go. But as usual, some hoomans are so un-dog-friendly. They don't allow furkids. Its not fair.
Mummy says it moves really slowly but the view is very very good. She wasn't scared at all. So brave. She could almost see our house (and me of course) from the top. Daddy as usual was too busy taking photos of the flyer and the wheel. Here are some of his photos. Sorry about the wierd colour but they were taken at dusk. Also the funny curved bits is because he used his fish eye lens. Hmmm! Interesting. Do you think Daddy actually caught a fish and took its eye. Then put the eye on his camera.
The flyer is actually not open to the public yet. But Daddy says they are going again (without me as usual) during the day when the flyer is open to the public this weekend. He says that you can even see Malaysia and Indonesia from it during the day.

Here is another one of me cutting my birthday cake. I wasn't very cooperative as you can see but I was already salivating at the thought of the cake.
Wednesday, February 20, 2008
Mummy is getting very upset with her. So am I!!! We were supposed to have got my birthday cake last weekend but because Jie Jie was not even around during the weekend, we didn't get it. We wanted to celebrate as a whole family. Bad Jie Jie!!

For no reason whatsoever she took Toto and I to the VET today. And we got jabs!!!! I don't even feel sick. I don't see why I have to get jabbed.
My cruel Mummy claims that it is good for us to have the jabs. She says its to vacinate us against nasty illness and we need to do this once a year, every year. Why do I need it?! I am big and strong and healthy. I can fight all the nasty diseases.
The only saviour is that Toto the big baby cried when the vet jabbed him. Ha! Ha! He squealed like a baby!!! I was brave. I didn't make any noise whatsoever. But it did hurt.
I'm going to sulk and not speak with my Mummy for the rest of today. That will teach her to be so mean to me. Taking me for jabs I don't need.

See my birthday presents
Anyway all in all it was a wonderful birthday. And I still get to celebrate one more time this weekend when Mummy will get me my cake.
Eat your heart out Toto! I celebrate twice. You only celebrated once.

It is also very important for Chinese to have a Reunion Dinner with all the family on the eve of the New Year. Its a time for everyone in the family to come home from near and far and sit down together for a huge slap up meal. Tonight we will be having our Reunion Dinner. Mummy normally cooks the Reunion Dinner at home and I get to eat all the good stuff that she will for sure pass to me surreptitiously. But this year, Mummy is not cooking. Its going to be at a restaurant and I DON'T GET TO GO!!!! Its not fair, I am family too!! Why can't I go? Sulk! Sulk!
Its my birthday coming up this Sunday. Mummy asked me if I wanted to celebrate it on that day or to have a belated celebration. The reason is that she wants to get me this yummy cake for my birthday with 2 candles. But the bakery is closed for the Chinese New Year until 12 February which is after my birthday. I am opting for the yummy cake!! I sure hope its worth the wait.
I would also like to update you on Toto's operation. He now has no boy bits. Ha! Ha! He weathered through the operation like it was nothing. When he came back, he was back to his greedy pigginess and had a whopping huge meal. The anaesthetic didn't affect him at all. He is running around like it never happened. That's my brother for you!!
I would like to wish all my furfriends and their hoomans

First, he can't eat or drink from the night before. Mummy says this is because they will put Toto under general anaesthetic. This makes him go to sleep and not feel the pain.
Then he will wake up and feel really whoosy and sleepy for the rest of the day. And worst of all, the lampshade!! He will have to wear it at least 2 weeks.
Poor Toto! My heart goes out to him.

Meanwhile Toto thought he was Superman and followed me jump in as well. This is where he became totally silly. That twit, he kept drinking the sea water. Lapping it up with his greedy tongue. Daddy told him not to do it and that he would get sick, but did he listen - no he did not. True enough, when we went to rest on the beach with Mummy, that silly brother of mine puked his guts out. Serves him right for not listening to Daddy.
But that's not the end of his silliness. When we got home, Toto suddenly started shivering and wouldn't stop. And horrors - he didn't want to eat his dinner. This is very very very unusual as we all know how greedy Toto is. Food is his first love. And sea water it seems!!
Mummy got real worried and kept holding him and covering him with a warm towel. I have to say I got rather jealous and wished I was sick too. Daddy said it was probably all the sea water he insisted on drinking and exhaustion. He is littler than I so he's not so used to hectic activity. Anyway, luckily after all the mothering Mummy gave him he felt better. After sleeping the whole night, today he is right as rain and gobbling down his breakfast like he always does. I sure hope he learnt his lesson and listen to Daddy next time. But I know my brother, he will forget and do exactly the same thing the next time we go. That silly boy!!

Here's one of my Mummy and I.
How do you like my bling bling collar? Mummy made it out of teeny weeny beads and crystals for me. I only wear it for special occasions.
