Sweltering summer day

We didn’t go to the gardens till 5. coz it was like a steambath out there. We would have gone much earlier if I had my way but no one listened to me. It was a long wait but we went in the end. There, we met a little cocker spaniel. I saw him first and I barked at him. Then he barked at me. This went on for a while. Fomfomfom and Ah bee, his owners, an elderly couple, and this family of three just kept cackling while we barked at each other. His owners said he’s only 6 months old. Fomfomfom told them that I’m four. Four, they exclaimed. They thought I was a puppy. *giggles* Anyway he’s such a baby. I bet it’s the first time he’s at the gardens. His owners had with them a tote, in baby blue no less. It looks like a diaper bag to me. They had a bottle of water and his drinking bowl with them. I bet they also have food, tissue and maybe wet wipes in that bag of theirs. You can never be too preprared. And proud grandparents they are. They remind me of my Ah ma. Kiss kiss Ah ma.


Where's my dor-zhai?

Today I had a heartworm pill. You eat it so that your heart will not be infested with worms. Self-explanatory really. I eat one on the 26th of each month. Don’t ask me why the 26th; it just happened to be that way. I never thought I would be so happy to be eating a heartworm pill. I mean it’s rather tasty and all; it’s beef flavoured but it’s just one of the many things I eat, if you know what I mean. But today, today was different. Today I was happy to be eating the heartworm pill. It’s variety, considering how I have been on a kibble-only diet for the past three days. Oh how I have sunk.

Yes I am very bitter about it.


Shh your head lah shh

Today Fomfomfom came back with a pan/tray of sorts. She opened it up and put my peepee-stained newspapers in there. And then they kept making that shhshh sound at me. I obviously paid no heed. Then at night, when I had to go, I went out to where they would lay newspapers for me. But there weren’t any papers there tonight. In its place was that pan. I stared at it for a really long time, not knowing what to do. I decided that they must have forgotten to lay the papers so I sat there and waited. And waited. But no one did the task. Instead, they kept pointing to the pan and making shhshh noises. It was all very frustrating. I had to go but I couldn’t possibly just pee on the floor, could I? No, I’ve long outgrown that stage. I only go on papers now. Finally after many a bigeyestaresmalleye, Cha went to get papers and lay them on the floor for me. Where they were supposed to be. Many hours ago.



Day one of my new diet

Today I started on my new diet. I was hoping that I would get my chicken drumstick rice combo for lunch but it never came. I waited till about 1pm and then i couldn’t take it anymore. So I ate the kibble. For 5 times today, I ate the kibble. They were starting to wonder if the kibble might actually be tasty so Ah bee bet Fomfomfom one dress that she wouldn’t eat my new kibble. Fomfomfom now has a new dress. And she concluded that my kibble tastes like cardboard. Anything that tastes like that must be full of goodness she says. So it's kibble and plain water. All I can eat. For the next two months sans one day. Sigh.

I had a really bad day. And that is an understatement. I haven’t been so upset in a really really long time. Today really stinks. I shall go to bed immediately after writing this so that I can forget all about today.

We went to the vet. We were there for almost two hours. I hate it there; I’d start shivering way before we’re even there. That vet woman knew that I was scared and she said, “Can I traumatize her? Can I carry her?” Ah bee handed me over to her and they said bye to me, that they were going home without me. Shame on them, scaring a little baby like me.

And so I got my blood test done. That came back good. Then I got my ears checked. They are beautiful so that’s good news too. Then she looked at my skin and she decided that I might have an allergy. She told them that I will either have to go on antibiotics or a prescribed diet. They chose the latter. So that means I can only drink water, and eat the prescribed kibble for the next two months. TWO DONKEY MONTHS! I am devastated. No more tidbits, no more treats. No food off the dinner table. No nothing. But kibble and water. For two months. TWO MONTHS. I can’t get over it. Two months. Two. Months.

And then I got my backside squeezed. That is always unpleasant but I got my revenge by shitting in the vet woman’s hands. And overpowering them with the stench. Orbi.

Then she looked at my teeth and she said they should start brushing my teeth. Yeah right, like that is going to happen. Fomfomfom says she will try to do it. I guess she doesn’t like her fingers much.

They thought that they would make me happier by bringing me to the gardens straight after the visit to the vet. Turns out that there was a cross country race at the gardens and the entire place was filled with runners and people standing around. This guy who was directing the runners started screaming when he saw me. He screamed like a little gal- Small dog, I’m so scared of small dogs! Argh argh ahhhhhh!- and he was trying to run away from me when I was a good distance away from him. We just looked at him puzzled. Me and Ah bee. Fomfomfom was staring daggers at him. It was really quite unnecessary. His friends were telling him to zip it but he kept screaming. Then his team leader who saw the whole thing from somewhere else yelled at him to shut up. I hope he was embarrassed. Later, the said leader ran up to us and apologized. Fomfomfom told him that it was very rude of him to be screaming like that. He assured her that he will be disciplined. That appeased her a little.

And that wasn’t all. While we were walking, we’ve got people heckling me. I don’t know what exactly they said but I know it’s not anything nice. And the runners were just stomping the entire gardens; I couldn’t take a proper walk. We met Melmel, Chipchip and Sidongxi Number 1 and they had to hide from all the runners by waiting on the bridge. They are never on the bridge. Come to think of it, I think they’re smarter. We were walking behind the runners and believe me, the air doesn’t quite smell of flowers like it usually does at the gardens.

Later, Ah bee and Fomfomfom spotted an ex-teacher and they were quite excited. But she yelled at them to get me off the path. Believe me, she was really rude. Barking orders at us, treating us like her students. That’s unacceptable behaviour. It’s not like they owned the gardens today. Holding the race there does not give them the licence to be rude to regular garden-users. She totally pissed us off. Besides, if they wanted the gardens for their race, they should have applied for a permit to keep the gardens closed to the public. It really spoilt the day for all of us. A bunch of kids had some outing planned but they were relegated to playing in a tiny area because of the race. Poor kids.

We were in no mood to continue so we just went home. Fomfomfom was so angry she forgot to dump my poop. It was the first time we actually brought my poop home.

And I threw up at night.

I’m going to bed.


Wo men are you le ma?

Fomfomfom declared that I’m can move up to EM2 after they tried to let me freestyle at the gardens again today. I was really good and I didn’t stray once. They tried to throw me off by taking another route but I didn’t bite. Actually it’s not that I’m THAT obedient; I just like my newfound freedom. I’m four now and they shouldn’t have to hold onto me like a baby. Except when there are other dogs around that is. That’s another story altogether. Anyway, they even tried to hide while I was smelling the flowers just to see if I would panic if I didn’t see them. Silly gals. I could hear them whispering away even if they’re outta my sight. And I wouldn’t panic; I’ll just meet them at the car. I know my way around very well indeed. I’ve been to the gardens more than 400 times I reckon. And I'll never get sick of going. *giggles*

It was really quiet at the gardens today so they decided to let me run free. Well, not exactly free coz I still had my leash on but no one was holding onto the leash. Ah bee and Fomfomfom were walking ahead of me; they were trying to see if I would keep up with them. And I did. I was a little far behind but I didn’t wander off on my own and they were so proud of me. Ah bee says it’s terrible how I’ve only learnt to obey instructions after four years. How many times have I told her; it’s not that I don’t know how to, I just don’t want to. And today I wasn’t really listening to instructions either; I was trying to get her to carry me coz I was tired but she kept walking away from me. That’s why I had to keep chasing her. But if it makes them happy, I’ll pretend that I was really good today. *giggles*


And how did you spend your Sunday?

Today we had visitors. My ah yi mamas came over and my Ah gu pekpek joined us later. I think my Ah yi mamas are so cute- everytime they come over, they would insist on playing Mahjong when neither of them knows how to. And my Ah ma would gladly play with them. Ah bee says Ah ma is just trying to cheat their money. I think Ah ma is just happy to be winning for once. *giggles*

I was so bushed from entertaining them the whole day I slept the night away. But even my extended nap wasn’t long enough; they were still watching the Sunday Night Korean Drama after I woke. I am just glad I can go to sleep now.

My bed beckons. Toodles.

I told Cha that women after 30 are like toufu dregs. And she is not far from being a toufu dreg. I just have to blink once and she’s there already. Fomfomfom was sniggering away and I told her not to be so happy; I only have to blink twice before she turns into one too. Cha immediately laughed at her. Well, I’m not going to turn into one sooner than you are, Fomfomfom said. I can’t remember if Cha said anything in retort.

But since we are on the topic of toufu, let me tell you what kinda toufu I am. I am the Egg Toufu. That’s the sort they use to braise with mushrooms and dried scallops. And abalone too. It’s high class toufu. That’s me all over. Ah ma is Daogua and Ah gong is Daopok. Cha is Daokee and Fomfomfom is Daojoo. Ah bee is Daohuayzhui and Merrilyn is Daohuay. Just don’t ask me how I came up with that; you don't want to know.


Everybody loves Xp.

When we were coming back from the gardens today, we pulled up next to this MPV. The diver happened to glance over and she saw me. She turned to her child and pointed at me. They both started smiling. And she waved at me. Ah bee carried me so they could see me properly. Then she did the dayanjing action a couple of times. *giggles* Wo shi Xiaoping, wo da yan jing.. zhuzhuzhu! *giggles* Everyone knows that.

A grandma and her grandchild walked by just now and she was trying to get him to say hello to me. She gave up after a few minutes and started walking away, him in her arms. When they were about one house away from me, he suddenly yelled, “Hayo there!” I think he meant goodbye. *giggles*

Just now Ah bee was frying some mushrooms and she let me wander at the back. I was a good girl. I stayed within her sight and when she was done, she called out to me and I promptly went back into the house with her. She says that I'm a big gal now and I deserve some freedom. I cannot agree with her more. Now if only they would remove the boards at the front so I can go to the garden to catch lizards and chase birds.
