Posts Tagged ‘Life with 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.

What About Me?


Hmm…never mind the humans as long as Oreo has his stock of dog food. He just love Dentastix.

I am getting quite lazy again. I was supposed to do a little gardening this afternoon  but around this time, it is still so hot outside.

Since Oreo isn’t here, the  house is so quiet. Josef and Jovy have an outing at Baler, Aurora province with their officemates. Baler  is one of Luzon’s hidden gems. Located 231 kilometers (143.5 mi) north-east of Manila, it is farther than our town in Pangasinan for about one to two hours from here. It is a surfer’s paradise because the town’s coast faces the Pacific Ocean. I asked Josef early this morning if Oreo has gone swimming yesterday. He said Oreo loves the water. They bought him  his own life jacket. Imagine a little dog complete with accessories too like that and sunglasses. They are made for small pets like him. This doggie is pampered.  He has his own “baon”,  provisions like Pedigree DentaStix, doggie biscuits, diaper and vitamins.

My goodness, I still love afternoon siesta, I thought when I woke up it is already morning. How lazy could one be? It is Sunday after all.

There are so many changes instituted by the church because of this corona virus. We have to take communions by the hands now, some holy water fonts are empty because they want to prevent contamination, holding hands while saying the Lord’s Prayer is now a no,no, no kissing during Peace greetings. Even the celebration on the Lenten rituals has changed.  Veneration of the cross will now be done by genuflecting.  The Kumpisalang Bayan (a night set aside for annual confessions) is now scrapped. They have it every day instead using the confessional box. Before, you can confess face to face.  It is no longer allowed.

I’ve gotten hold of one more novel. It’s entitled The Golden Son by Shilpi  Somaya Gowda. Getting to know more about rural India.  Love it. It’s my 30th read this year at Goodreads. Seventy more books to go 🙂

Since Thursday was  a regular working Day, Friday was Valentine’s Day and  Saturday was Family Day, it was decided that we celebrate Oreo’s birthday on Sunday.  Jovy prepared pasta and other finger food for the humans to enjoy but there was a special birthday cake just for Oreo and cupcakes too mixed with his favorite chicken liver.

Jovy took some photos.  There were actually so many but I just chose these four. This was held at Jovy’s grandma’s house.

 

Happy Bark Day indeed!

 

This time, he didn’t have doggie visitors but Jovy prepared these for the kids.

 

He knows how to pose in front of the camera…haha!

Yesterday while we were eating lunch and Oreo was seated near, he saw this fresh ampalaya (bitter gourd) that I planned of cooking for dinner sauteed in eggs and paired with fried fish.

We were all surprised when he started munching on the vegetable and seemed to enjoy it so we took a video. I tried uploading it here but a fellow blogger said she can’t open the link so I just erased it. This is the first time I’ve seen a dog eat fresh ampalaya, I am pretty sure he won’t touch it when it is cooked. We googled the benefits of eating fresh ampalaya by those other breed of doggies and it has several.

I was quietly reading when he came barking his heart out. Then he noticed our glass sliding doors and he saw two dogs, he stopped for a while and faced me. He went out of the room and  got his small doggie toy.

“A peace offering”? I asked.

He then positioned himself at the edge of the bed and looked at me.

“Oh, you’re sorry you are barking out loud”, I said. Look at his eyes, he seems sorry enough. I have to cuddle him and he licked my arms.

We’re friends again.

That’s Oreo….bow!
