Chinese New Year

The Chinese Lunar New Year is tomorrow. Mummy says its going to be the year of the Rat. This year is the year of the Pig. There will be many celebrations and good things to eat over the new year.

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

GONG XI FA CAI!!
May you all have a prosperous and happy new year of the Rat!!

Hi Scruffy
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR TO YOU AND TOTO AND YOUR FAMILY .. AND.. A VERY HAPPY BARKDAY TO YOU !!!
We hope you have a pawsome Barkday full of fun and treats. You should ask your mum if you can have 2 pawties.
