Here is my entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge. This may come a bit late but I love the message it brings. Water is one of the most important substances  in our life. We cannot survive if there is no water.

I remember the time I took this shot. My two kids and I celebrated Mother’s Day by dining out and visiting a zoo. Surprisingly, though at that time they were no longer little kids, we all enjoyed feeding the rabbits, seeing so many bird species and animals that we only saw on picture books when they were small.

I am not a political analyst, neither am I into politics but I appreciate President Obama’s visit here in our country. They say he is the most powerful man in the world on account of the USA being the most powerful country. I won’t delve into the nitty-gritty of the whys and the hows of his visit here because I am not qualified to do so. What I saw of the warm welcome, the warm smiles, the wonderful speeches that both leaders delivered yesterday are enough to gladden the hearts of the Filipino people who believe that peace could only be achieved not by arms and golds but through  a sincere dialogue and communication.

It was the second straight two days that I allowed myself to stay in front of the television to watch the canonization of  Saints John Paul II and Saint John XXIII in Rome the other day and the arrival of President Obama yesterday.  I enjoyed watching both. I found some pictures posted by the Gazette of the Republic of the Phils. on Facebook which I follow.

I love this.  he took his time shaking hands with the ordinary Malacanang employees, smiling and looks truly glad to step foot in the Philippines.

It was short (not even a twenty-four hour visit) but I saw a glimpse of the man who is so polite  and knows what he is talking about.  Report says this is the eight visit of a President of the United States to the Philippines.

He is a mixed breed Japanese Spitz and Labrador Retriever, a gift from my son’s girlfriend.  Yes, it is a “he”  while our Japanese Spitz is a “she”. Although they resemble in color, their legs are vastly different. Kuchi has short legs and fan-like tail while our Noki has chubby and long legs. He is three months old. Now, I wonder how  he’ll look like when he grows a little older because now he is more of a Labrador than a Japanese Spitz. He goes in and out of our screen door as though he owns the place.

NokiI laughed at loud when he saw our full-length bedroom mirror and kissed his image while maybe trying to figure out why there is another dog looking at him. This morning while my son was still asleep, he visited his room and put his two front legs at the side of the bed gently scratching him and trying to  wake him up.

He definitely enjoys running around the garden and playing with our two dogs. I tried taking him out on a leash this morning and he was so curious about his surroundings.  He has a big growl like a Labrador but is so cuddly like  a Japanese Spitz.
