I am featuring our two small doggies. It is International Dog Day today, August 26. Our pets are parts of our family too. 0ur fur babies are growing. Cookie turned a year old last August 22 but they celebrated it at Jovy’s grandma’s place.

Compared to Oreo, she is more behaved and so malambing.

We couldn’t take photos of Oreo anymore without him moving around. Last night when I took their photos, he hid himself under the bed.

Here’s the only clear one I have of him yesterday. He is beginning to have that attitude.

Three days or four days ago, Josef and Jovy found Noki at the pound. That was the second day that we were looking for him. They approached the police and they helped them to secure Noki back since he was not at the pound. Those in charge of it know healthy and nice breed dog so they didn’t bring him there. I guess he was also traumatized. My kids would have to buy him back.

The other day, they decided to adopt a dog, a Jack Russell. I was amazed that he is a good dog. He was wagging his tail when we fed him. Noki was jealous of course, he kept on barking but when Jovy finished bathing the dog, they were already friends. We decided to call her Niki.

Yesterday, I was surprised when the small truck of the pound arrived at our gate. As soon as Niki saw it, she readily hid herself under our dining table and she was shaking. She was afraid of those men she saw at the gate. Even dogs know who cares for them and who does not. They brought with them two more dogs. Jovy paid 1k for both. I guess they are Aspin (native dogs). A female and a male. She said the male would be given to her brother. One stayed in the rain yesterday. He won’t budge. They are now in the garden but they haven’t adapted yet to their environment.

I pity the poor dogs, those in-charge of the pound euthanize them after three or four days when nobody claims them. I bet they eat them too. They sell those which other dog lovers like. Josef and Jovy took pity on the two dogs. We cannot pet them yet because they are still afraid of us. They need baths too. It may take sometime before we could even play with them. The male one destroyed my Cosmos seedlings which I planted at one corner of the garden. He slept there last night.

So now we have five dogs in all, Cookie, Oreo, Noki, Niki and the new one. Dogs are family members too. The last three are our guard dogs.

Finding Him Finally


Jovy and Josef cut off their office hours ( they work from home) at around 10am today. Somebody called from the dog pound. They were there yesterday to inquire about Noki.

He is home now. Josef has to bathe him then he had his lunch. Oh my, I cried seeing him again. Thank God.

This is really, really sad. We lost our guard dog Noki two days ago. He is a half Lab, half Spitz. A very gentle and lovable dog. I don’t know if he went out when Josef opened the garage to take the car out. But he always come back once we close the garage door. I was calling him yesterday so he could eat his lunch but he didn’t come out.

He normally stays in our garage under the car or at our dirty kitchen to play with our two kitties. Josef and Jovy went to the dog pound yesterday to inquire to no avail. I love that dog. He is my companion when I am gardening. Maybe someone picked him while he was outside.

Jovy cried when they reached home. Noki was her gift to Josef years ago. Last night I dreamt that he came back. He usually cries when he is left outside the gate.

No Noki and I feel sad.

Yesterday, I took some shots of Cookie. She is now sporting a new look because she was newly trimmed.

She will be turning a year old come August 22 but she is twice larger than Oreo. Sobrang malikot. She is so playful that it is kind of hard to take photos of her now.

As for Oreo, we have a favorite place when he is out of the room. An automatic gesture for him because he loves a back rub.

I was able to take photos of Cookie by placing her atop our built-in cabinet.

She Has Grown


I was playing with Cookie the other day. She gave me a kiss when she went out of their room. Although she is only eight-month old, she is more affectionate than Oreo. The latter is now so independent and territorial. As for Cookie, even if the door is slightly open, she would not enter unless you call her. I took a few shots of her and compared to some of her photos when we brought her home at more than a month. She was so tiny then and was not used to puppy food. She eventually learned to enjoy taking a bath whereas a few months ago, she was afraid of the water.

At 8.5 kilos she is far too heavier than Oreo at 5.5 kilos.

They say that dogs are the most loyal friends. I watched a video some days ago. The dog was watching the niche/tomb of the man who recently died. He was his friend and caretaker.

Peace


Took shot of this early this morning. I was looking at the flowers of my Adenium when I noticed one of our kitties, she is a bonus…haha!

At peace. All is right in her world.

It is Oreo’s third birthday. They say that the equivalent dog years depend on the breed of the dog and on how big or small they are. For a poodle, Oreo is fully grown.

We took lots of pictures of course. He has lots of Dentastix, 2 cartoons of doggie milk and three kilos of dog food as gifts. There was this single small slipper as a freebie from where we bought the decor, buntings and balloon but it was a toy for him, it has a pretty sound when he shakes it.

What a lovely birthday, the humans enjoyed the food – pancit bihon, calamare and a medium-sized boodle bilao which has fried rice, lumpia, fried chicken, grilled pork slices, pork sisig and even eggplant and salted egg.

Happy third birthday Oreo.

That doggie cake has liver but I wonder what they used to color its face. Does it looks like Oreo?

We were at the garden this afternoon including Oreo. He has now learned to bark or whine when he wants to go out and pee. Dogs are intelligent, aren’t they?  When we are outside and are busy, we make him sit on the ledge of the front window. He couldn’t jump because it is high. Good thing he is friendly with our other dog Noki but when he is inside the car and Noki shows his face near it, he barks. Quite territorial. He goes with Josef and Jovy  when they visit the latter’s  grandma every week.

I took a photo of him earlier. I think he needs another trim, I could barely see his eyes.

Our Shih Poo Oreo is always curious when the car leaves the garage and he know when he is supposed to go with us or with Jovy and Josef because we put on his harness. For small pets, harness is more comfortable to them than having a dog collar.  He always guards the door when we are leaving and waits for us to carry him outside. I took a few shots before they left a while ago with Oreo in tow.

 

He just took a bath here and he is quite excited.

 

He looks like a cuddly bear.

 

Curious where he is going….haha!

 

Ready, set…..go!

In human years, he’ll be turning two this coming February. Another year to celebrate with Oreo 🙂
