Kung Hei Fat Choi! (Happy New Year!)

Today is Chinese New Year's Eve and mom has been busy preparing a feast for tonight and tomorrow. I hope I get to taste some of the goodies.

According to the Chinese calendar, 2009 is the Year of the Earth OX (January 26, 2009 - February 13, 2010). The Chinese calendar is based on solar and lunar cycles so the new year falls on a different day of the Western solar calendar each year.

Here's what's in store for us this year:
The OX year is a conservative year, one of traditions and values. This is not a year to be outrageous. A slow but steady year.

This OX year will bring stability and growth where patience and diligence pays off.

This is a year of Harvest - when we reap what we have sown. Take care of business this year, do not let things slide.

If you were born in the year of the RAT

This year is a stable year for family life and will be a joyful year. Career wise the rats will take on more responsibilities and will feel the pressure of the extra duties. A good year of steady progress.

If you were born in the year of the TIGER

This is the year for keeping a low profile, tigers. Because of the slow pace of the OX year, it will be a frustrating time for you. You like things to be move quicker, you will need to show restraint.

If you were born in the year of the RABBIT

The year of the OX is well suited to the rabbit nature. The slower pace of this year will see you spending more time with friends and family. A good year to upgrade your home, or for buying or selling a house.

If you were born in the year of the DRAGON

In business and in romance your word for this year is integrity. Keep your head down and you will make steady progress this year. Established relationships will be comfortable and easy during this year of the OX. A slow but sure progress will be made.

If you were born in the year of the SNAKE

A very good year for Snakes! The steady pace of the OX year is well suited to the snake person. Act on an opportunity - this is your year.

If you were born in the year of the HORSE

Although you are rearing to surge ahead, this is another year of caution for the horse. Not a good year to strike out in new directions, consolidate your positions instead. On the brighter side, Love will bring comfort this year.

If you were born in the year of the SHEEP

The Ox is the direct opposite of the sheep, therefore expect challenges in all areas this year. Keep a low profile.

If you were born in the year of the MONKEY

This is a year of moderate progress for monkeys. Work will slow down this year allowing the monkey more personal time. It also allows for quality time with friends and family.

If you were born in the year of the ROOSTER

Great opportunities for rooster this year. A good time to recoup losses. You will make great progress at work, reaping rewards of your labor. Emotional ties bring joy. Your prestige and reputation increase.

If you were born in the year of the DOG

A year for dogs to keep a low profile. Put more attention into matters at home, spending quality time with loved ones. The simple pleasures will bring happiness this year.

If you were born in the year of the PIG

A year for the pig to follow his/her instinct, laying foundations for the future. This is a bright and hopeful year for the pig. Do not take unnecessary risks though.


Proud Moment - Grad night for my human brother

June 26th 2008 11:22 am

Last night my human brother Oliver went for his Middle School graduation. It was such a beautiful day as all the graduates gathered at the school dressed in their finest. I wasn't allowed to go but when I went out for my evening walkie I saw a bunch of good looking kids. The boys were dressed in tuxs and suits and the girls had on beautiful prom dresses. It looked like there was a wedding at the school.

Mom and dad were beaming with pride when they learned that Oliver won the prestigious award for Academic Excellence along with a school medal for all the hard work he did. It was a long night and then they had a party for the graduates. It's called a PROM. There was food and drinks and of course lots of dancing. I wish I could have gone but mom said "no dogs allowed" and besides there's a mean old Principal there who does not like dogs. Tim had a run in with her and he called her the wicked witch of Silver Creek (that's the name of the school).

Oliver finally got home after 11 pm. Dad was already in bed because he had to work the next morning but mom went to pick him up and they chatted about the big night. He had a lot of fun and even danced with a few girls. It was a very memorable evening and now he gets to enjoy the summer before heading off to high school.

We lost our Grandma

Things have changed at home for the past few weeks. I wasn't exactly sure what was happening. First, mom and dad left in a real hurry one day and didn't come home for a few days. It seemed like eternity to me. I was being a good bichon and guarded the house in their absence. My human brothers did try to comfort me but I missed mom and dad a lot. When they finally arrived home, I was so excited. I started to bark and do the blitz.

Mom was real stressed out and I did my best to cheer her up. Then we learned that one of my human grandma was not doing well. I think that's why mom and dad have been so sad. Dad had to rush back to Montreal and we later learned that grandma passed away. When pets pass away, they go to Rainbow Bridge and when humans pass on they go to Heaven.

Mom has been crying a lot. I'm trying my best to cheer her up but I just can't seem to plug up the tears. I even told her that when she cries it makes me cry and my tear stains will make me look awful. Dad is coming home today so maybe he can work his magic on her.

I overheard mom talking to the kennel lady this morning. I have a feeling they are going away again. Oh well, I guess I'll have to be brave and try to enjoy myself. Maybe I'll get to meet some new friends.

Only 4 days left until Valentine's Day. Mom said it's the day of LOVE and there's no shortage of that in the Clubhouse. As a matter of fact, Reggie White and Camry are a couple now. Ellie Mae and Torrey have been a couple for awhile. It's so nice to see everyone falling in love. Mom said that Cupid has been very busy. He/she is the little fellow that goes around shooting his/her arrow that infects us with the love bug. I'm not sure if I buy that silly story but it sure sounds good to me. Check out our BLC Valentine Slideshow to see all our Bichon Valentines sending messages to one another. Then of course, don't forget to drop me a kiss at my KISSING BOOTH. Have a great Valentine everyone!

Love, Pep


JR Angel - Forever in Our Hearts

It's been an emotional week for a lot of our BLC buddies as we mourned the loss of Auntie Mary's JR who is now looking down on all his friends from Rainbow Bridge. A lot of tears have been shed but we hope time will heal the wounds and Auntie Mary will open her heart to love another fluff. I just know in my heart that there is a little boy or girl that will light up Auntie Mary's life again. We all know bichons are great listeners so he or she will be able to hear all of JR's tales and follow in his pawsteps.

Some of our friends attended a Memorial Service for JR on Monday, January 21st. We lit candles and said some nice prayers. I watched mom as she read this poem "A Dog For Jesus" and then she glanced over at me. She came over and gave me the biggest and longest hug. It made me feel all fuzzy inside.


(Where dogs go when they die)

I wish someone had given Jesus a dog.

As loyal and loving as mine.

To sleep by His manger and gaze in His eyes

And adore Him for being divine.

As our Lord grew to manhood His faithful dog,

Would have followed Him all through the day.

While He preached to the crowds and made the sick well

And knelt in the garden to pray.

It is sad to remember that Christ went away.

To face death alone and apart.

With no tender dog following close behind,

To comfort its Master's Heart.

And when Jesus rose on that Easter morn,

How happy He would have been,

As His dog kissed His hand and barked it's delight,

For The One who died for all men.

Well, the Lord has a dog now, I just sent Him mine,

The old pal so dear to me.

And I smile through my tears on this first day alone,

Knowing they're in eternity.

Day after day, the whole day through,

Wherever my road inclined,

Four feet said, "Wait, I'm coming with you!"

And trotted along behind.

Author: Rudyard Kipling

Now that JR is settled at Rainbow Bridge, his buddies must all move on with their lives to make their mommies and daddies happy. After all, that's what we do best so we must live up to our reputation. JR would not have it any other way. Just look up to the heaven's skies and you'll get your answer. will live in our hearts as we remember all the good times we've shared in the Bichon Lovers Clubhouse.


My Woofie Day Today! WOOHOOOOOO

Today is October 29th and it's my Woofie Day today. Humans call it BIRTHDAY...the day you were born.

I am officially 4 years old today but mom said in human years I'm older than that. I don't feel old at all so I'm not sure what she's talking about. This morning my human brothers sang "Happy Birthday" to me. It sure was noisy but I felt very special and loved. Thanks guys! Yesterday my brother Oliver baked me some banana pupcakes. Boy, it make the house smell nice. I had my snout in the air sniffing away. As a pre-celebration to my Woofie Day, mom couldn't resist giving me one to try. It was a new recipe she got off the world wide web. It was DELICIOUS so I thank whoever posted that recipe. 4 paws UP!!!! I'm quite sure I'll get one later on today.

Of course, mom couldn't resist taking a picture of me in my party hat (see above picture). See all those banana pupcakes? Well, I'm more than willing to share with all my fluffer friends so drop by and you can have one.

Bark to all you fluffs later!



Spring FEVER!!!

Hey, mom said today is the first day of Spring. It's starting to warm up here and the snow is all gone. I can finally pee on the grass. The problem is we keep finding little gifts on some lots and mom isn't too happy about that She hates it when I try to sniff it. The weekend is supposed to be really nice so I'm hoping that mom and dad takes me to the park so I can blitz to my hearts delight.

I got to tell you what happened last night. Dad took me out for a late night walk last night. The air was crisp and the sky was clear. I was loving it. On our way home, my eyes caught a little dog. It was slightly smaller than me and dad called her a shitzu. I instantly stopped to check her out. She was cute!!! As we got a little closer and I proceeded to sniff her out, all of a sudden she growled and snapped at me. Dad quickly pulled me away just in the nick of time. He wasn't the least bit happy. The shitzu's owner apologized and left quickly. I've got to learn that not all dogs like me...was it my look, my smell or WHAT?

Anyway, I'm harm done! Enjoy the day but make sure you stay out of the mud puddles or else you'll end up in the bathtub.



A message to my secret admirer

Oh boy, oh got an email notice tonight saying someone sent little ole me a rosette. They wanted to be my Valentine. Only problem is...we don't know who sent it as it was signed by a secret admirer. Could it be a perfect stranger from the world wide web? Could it be one of my many friends on BLC? Whoever you would be an honor to be your Valentine. Sending you bichon hugs and kisses for the lovely rosette.

Love, Pepper
