Getting Back On Track

Missy and I are getting back on track after the scare some weeks back. Here we are at one of our old haunts.

Amazing Grace

I will run.

I must go after Missy.

I don't care if there's a gate before me, I will scale it.

I don't care if there are monster automobiles out there

that might crush me, I must find Missy.

No, I won't stop to smell the flowers,

I must keep going.

No, I don't care if my paws are bleeding,

I must keep running.

Missy's Extra: Waverly ran away from a friend's today. I had sent her there to be babysitted as I expected to be late today. I could never imagine that she would be so desperate to come after me that even a great big gate couldn't deter her! I turned cold and imagined the worst when I received the phone call, but thought, this just couldn't be! It just couldn't! Not so soon after Daisy. After hours of frantic and aimless searching in the huge maze of private residences, several hits and misses (passersby reported sightings), I prayed that He would just tire Waverly so that she would stop running. He must have been watching over her because she did just that. She found her way into the home of a kind family where she was comforted and fed. The thoughtful owner even kept a lookout for a search party and that was how Waverly was eventually found.

I cannot begin to describe the relief. It is beyond words. And I cannot be thankful enough, because had she gone just a little further, Waverly would have hit the main roads where I think all her chances would have been dashed. Harrowing, my poor baby. What am I to do with you, little one?

Waverly's separation anxiety has gone up a notch with Daisy gone. Right from the beginning, she had had the benefit and company of strong and independent Daisy. I'm rather at a loss now. If you have experiences in successfully countering separation anxiety in your dogs, please will you share with me?

Happy Monday!

It would have been the start of another dreary work week. But since Missy's grounded, it turned out to be one of the best Mondays ever!

First, I got to sleep in with Missy.

Then, she made me a nice brunch of Poached Egg with Scalloped Potatoes and Broccoli.

No smile, Missy!
Waverly wants eat, NOW!

I wanna play!
I wanna sleep!

I wanna play!
I wanna sleep!

I'm falling asleep!
I'm sleeping...
I'm asleep.

Here I Am!

Wondering where I've been?

Well, here I am!

As you can see,
I still have my signature
(unsmiling, dignified) good looks!

Puppy Cuzzie En

Cuzzie En wants to grow up just like me! Here she is on all fours trying to emulate me:

She's got some way to go. Keep going, Cuz!

Missy Back!

A little something Missy brought back for me.

Now I can sleep sound.

Missy's Extra: Poor Waverly missed me terribly while I was away. Dad said she was half-hearted at play and Mom said some nights, she slept out in the hall alone waiting for me. When I got home today, she literally jumped up and down in joy, and I suspect, relief. She wanted to be picked up and we cuddled for a good 10 minutes before she was satisfied, settled down and allowed me to bring in my suitcase. Good girl, Waverly. I missed you too, little one.

Of The Winged & Webbed

Finally I get out for a spot of fun and a breath of fresh air after Missy survives another peak period at work. But what do I have to show for it? It seems a certain someone was rather distracted and more interested in pursing a pair of creatures of the winged and webbed persuasion than yours truly!

I get two obligatory shots......



And the rest......







That's swell, Missy, just swell!

You would have been 11, Daisy.

Here's a bouquet of Forget-Me-Nots.

I'll never forget you, Daisy.

Don't ever forget me too, ok?

Oh Daisy, what would I give to see you again?

My St Francis Pet Medal

Last Christmas, Aunt Cel got me a St Francis Pet Medal.

This is what it looks like.

It came with a pretty set of poodle keychains!

There is a prayer at the back of the tag, for me and my friends.

Missy finally got me a chain for the pendant.

Don't I look nice?

I think I look very dignified!

I feel mighty blessed! Not just because I now have a St Francis medal but because I am so loved!

Thanks, Aunt Cel. You really do give the best gifts! I love ya'! Poodle kisses to ya'!

Happy 牛 Year!

Happy Lunar New Year of the Ox!

This has been a pretty good Chinese New Year. Missy decided to take me new year's visiting and bought me a pretty new dress to go with!

Here's me getting ready to go new year's visiting in my new dress

and matching ribbons in my hair.

The second day of Chinese New Year is traditionally when relatives come to visit. I kept busy being a good host to everyone!

Here's me on my black swivel chair meeting

and greeting guests with a great big smile!

Cuzzie En was in great form and was official entertainer for the day. Here's her dancing to 'Honey Honey' from the movie 'Mama Mia':

She received a resounding applause for her performance. Then, woozy from the limelight, and in a burst of spontaneity and affection, she threw herself at me, and offered me a kiss, for being her constant friend and supporter:

And then she got a bit overzealous and tried to keep me all to herself for a bit:

Here's wishing everyone:


(Happiness in the new year)


(May your course run smooth)


(Good health)


My Chinese New Year special,

Shredded Chicken Fillet and Potatoes with Tangerine!

My ang paos!


(Plenty to eat! To never be in want of anything.)

Waverly Goes To Chinatown

Since Chinese New Year was around the corner, Grandpapa, Grandmama and Missy decided to hit Chinatown to check out the buys at the bazaars and soak in the festive atmosphere, and lucky me got to tag along!

Because I am so cute and good and as Grandpapa said, probably the only shopping and sightseeing dog in Chinatown, I attracted a great deal of attention with lots of 'Hey look!", "Hey, there's a Poodle!', 'So cuuuute!' and people reaching out to touch me as I negotiated through the crowds.

Here's me in Grandmama's arms:

It was good fun so Missy said maybe we can do it again next year!

I'm Four!

Four years ago on this day, little fabulous me was born. So on this very joyous occasion of my glorious 4th birthday, Missy gathered her spirits and threw me a double celebration!

First, we had a dinner party on December 31, 2008 with family. Here's what the folks had:

My baked fish and potatoes with cheese

Here's my Missy and me, and my birthday cupcakes!

On my actual birthday, Missy took me for a romp at the park:

Back home, she had another birthday treat waiting for me:

Behold my Paris Brest!

Can you tell that I am pleased, very pleased?

Missy's Extra: Happy 4th birthday, my baby Waverly! I have only one wish for you - that you may have many happy, healthy returns of the day!
