I am such a poor thing

January 12th 2009 7:03 am

My birthday was two days ago but no one remembered it. They even made fun of me that day, fomfomfom taking off my collar and throwing it to cha some distance away, making me walk to cha to have it put on and then back to fomfomfom who'd take it off again. It's ah bee's birthday today and everyone remembered.

Not only were they not apologetic, fomfomfom even got angry at me today. I only ate 2 chicken bones during my walk, and she lost her temper and dragged me home after only 20 minutes downstairs. I tried to say sorry but she won't even feed me kibble by kibble. For the first time in a very very very long while, I had to eat my kibble myself out of the bottle cap.

I approached fomfomfom a few times and looked at her with big watery eyes but she stayed angry. Only ah ma would give me the time of day and she sayang-ed me and said poor thing and patted me.

Half an hour of misery is a lifetime. Later fomfomfom was appeased and brought me downstairs again. We walked for one and a half hours. I was happy again.


Emptiness does not become a bottle cap

Fomfomfom told everyone I was very playful tonight. But I think it's not my fault. She showed me the cap of my kibble jar, and tried to cap my nose, my ears, and then she hovered it above my head and told it to beam me up. I jumped and jumped and stood on my hind legs and tried to hit fomfomfom with my hands. I was so agitated fomfomfom surrendered and made me eat supper.

Out of that cap of course. A bottle cap should not be empty. When fomfomfom filled the cap with kibble, I calmed down and ate my supper like a good girl. Then she screwed the cap back on the jar and I couldn't play with it anymore. So I bit shiu shiu who squealed and squeaked and they all said I was too playful tonight.

I don't think so.

My new pink pillow has a pillowcase now. It is bright and colorful. I think it's quite nice, so I sniffed at it and maybe I will rest on it when I deign to.

I like new things.

The wind was so strong today I got a little frightened listening to it. Then fomfomfom brought me down for my walk and the wind almost blew me away. My ears flapped and fomfomfom held on to my leash tight in case I became airborne. It was an adventure.

Cha and fomfomfom brought me to cut my hair today. I waited 40 minutes before the groomer would attend to me. I'm so tired from all that trembling.

Ah bee and cha kept laughing at me, coz a few strands of hair on my nose weren't cut and are longer than the rest. Was it something that happened in their childhood that left them so strange?

The only happy thing today was the secret I discovered while on my afternoon walk with fomfomfom. The playground is full of tasty nibbles! It is tidbits galore! The kids buy snacks from the vending machine and eat at the playground and they drop the snacks all over the place. I chomped down a xiaomantou before fomfomfom dragged me away. Later she won't let me near the playground.

I'll try again tomorrow.


Ponyo on the cliff by the sea

Ah bee taught fomfomfom how to sing the ponyo song and fomfomfom kept singing it to me today. I think it's quite a nice song.

At night ah bee said my mouth smells like I drank water from a fish tank again. She's been saying it for years. But I have an answer for her tonight. I told ah bee, that's because I am (singing) ponyo ponyo ponyo little little fish.

They praised me for being so smart.


The herb patch

I walked to the herb patch coz I remembered it was so fascinating yesterday. Fomfomfom was peering intently, trying to find the dead white rat she saw in the patch yesterday, so that I won't step on it. She was so concentrated on the patch that she didn't notice me sniffing by her feet.

And there the dead rat was. Fomfomfom probably nearly stepped on it herself. Who dragged the rat out of the patch, fomfomfom cursed. And I got a good sniff before fomfomfom yanked me away. Giggles.

I was in the lobby when I saw this boxer-like dog. I barked up a storm but fomomfom won't let me approach him. She then dragged me into the lift and before I could say "a pox on the box", the lift doors had closed and I was left in regret.

I scratched at the lift doors furiously and wagged my tail, staring hard at the renegade doors. Alas, when they opened, I was in another place.

Anger can really consume one if you're not careful.


My pillow

I got a pillow today. It is pink and it is a little shiny. I immediately made myself comfortable on it.

I was very happy I finally got a pillow just like the rest of the family, but I begrudge them for taking so long to give me one. And it's one they're about to discard. My beds and mattress are so thin I hit the ground whenever I lie on them.

This pillow is good and thick and I'll be sleeping on it tonight. It's just that pink is hardly royal enough for me. I'll get them to buy me a shiny yellow pillow, the color of chinese emperors.

Only that would be befitting.


Pai Pai

I had lots of great things to eat today. Ah bee gave me fried rice to eat just before we went downstairs to play. For energy, ah bee says.

At night fomfomfom came back with Popeye's chicken for ah bee. I had to have some too, so I sneezed and ah bee gave me some. And I sneezed again and again until the floor was covered with my mucus and fomfomfom and ah bee laughed at me.

So I tried another tactic, the quivering lips. I showed them my lower teeth and quivered my lower lip. It was a moving scene. Fomfomfom and ah bee were duly impressed, but alas the chicken was no more. But they praised me and I'll be sure to use the quivering lips on them in future.
