Missy always keeps a promise! We had a lovely English tea today! Of course, we had to dress up as proper ladies do. Jie Jie had on her special handmade beaded pink ribbon, a pressie from our beloved Aunt Hazel, and I had on my pink pearl necklace.

The spread included Shortbread, Cranberry Cream Scones and Strawberry-Cinnamon Muffins.

♫♪♫ Heaven...we're in heaven, ♫♪♫

And our hearts beat so that we can hardly squeak.

And we seem to find the happiness we seek,

When we're sipping tea together you and me.

Kent Ridge Park

We checked out a different park today, Kent Ridge Park. It was quiet, peaceful, vast and had lots of greenery which Missy really loved!

Under the greenwood tree

Who loves to lie with me,

And turn his merry note

Unto the sweet bird's throat...

(As You Like It, Act II Sc V)

Jie Jie looking very pretty.

I try out a pose too....

"Yikes! I'm spooked! I'd better scoot!"

"Me too! I'm outta here!"

Is that a monkey we spot? Nay, 'tis Waverly merely.

Ant attack! Jie Jie is too sweet for her own good! She's an ant magnet!

"Waverly, you're going in the wrong direction!"

That's right, Jie Jie and I will find our way together, side by side.

Mmm....we can't wait!

Cheese & Whiskers, oops, I mean Crackers

It's Monday night and the whimsical folks are feeling like cheese and crackers......

We had Brie with Herbs and a Walnut Cheese. YUM-MY!

Still, 'The Glue'

Ever since I was little, Grandpapa nicknamed me 'The Glue' because, as the name implied, I stuck to Missy like superglue! Wherever Missy went about the house, I was sure to follow. I was her shadow! And whenever she went out, I would whimper and cry. (Read about the time when Missy left me behind here.)

Just when everyone thought I'm a little more grown up and independent these days, I went and did it again.

Today, Missy had to bring Jie Jie to the vet for a review. When she left with Jie Jie without me, I waaailed. Grandmama tried to coax me to sleep. I tried to repeatedly but got up each time and ran to check the gate for Missy, only to return to Grandmama's side in disappointment and with more whimpers. I was so glad when they finally returned and was literally all over Missy. I love Missy! I can't help it!

My love-love!

Missy is cross with me for licking my paws non-stop. One of it is now red and sore and inflamed so Missy's had it dressed lest I go at it again.

At The Beach

As promised, Missy brought us to the beach today! Boy did we have fun! Here are some video clips and photos to show:

Jie jie the beach babe!
(Missy's Extra: I really love this picture of Daisy! She's so beautiful!)

Jie jie really loves the water! She couldn't wait to jump in!

Can you tell how happy we were?

I did have a slight misadventure though. I forgot I wasn't half as good a swimmer as jie jie and before Missy could put on my life vest, I had jumped into the waters after jie jie to retrieve our frisbee. I got to the frisbee all right and paddled hard to get back to shore but I couldn't move an inch! This was me struggling in the waters:

Luckily, it didn't take long for Missy to realise after taking this shot that I was in trouble. She didn't even wait to set down her camera somewhere dry and rushed quickly, camera above her head in one hand, still fully-clothed and scooped me up with her free arm. Good thing the water was only chest high.

I didn't let the episode get to me though for I knew Missy would never let any harm come to me. She did promptly clasp on my life jacket after the rescue and then back into the waters I went!

I may not be as good a swimmer as jie jie (Missy thinks I look clumsy when I swim!), but I'm definitely the better retriever!

Another successful retrieval mission! Did you catch jie jie taking a dive for the frisbee?

Here's jie jie looking very funny trying to dig up the frisbee stuck in the sand!

Still not the most confident of swimmers, I whimper as I swim!

Was jie jie rolling her eyes at me?

We sneaked a final shot before going off, on the Wall's Ice-Cream buggy! Of course, the ice-cream man wasn't around and no, we didn't get any ice-cream.

What great fun we had today! Missy's all tired out from bathing, blow-drying and brushing us. And there's all that sand we brought with us into the car too!

Missy's Extra: Wonder if I might strike a deal with the govie for all that sand?

Thanks, Aunt Mary!

Today was Missy's last day at work and Aunt Mary made cupcakes for her farewell reception. They were as yummy as they were pretty! We had one too as generous Aunt Mary made sure there were plenty to go around. Now, if only Missy would let up on the photo-taking already......

No work for Missy......Woohoo! Does that mean bonus time for us? The beach, the park, the great outdoors, here we come!

♫♪♫ Happy days are here again...♫♪♫

Daisy Nightingale

Whenever one of the folks at home falls ill, jie jie becomes our little Florence Nightingale. She will keep company with the patient, unwavering in her attentiveness, never leaving the bedside no matter what activity takes place outside. Her most recent charge was Sissy S who was down with indigestion. Here's what Sissy S has to say:

"Daisy Nightingale is the best company ever. She doesn't do very much but provides the best comfort and respite just by staying by my side. Highly recommended!!!" - Sissy S
