After lunch today, i got both dad and Boy packing quickly. I told them... we have bright sunshine... i think we can leave this evening. Both grumbled under their breaths and started packing. I used to pack for both of them but they got lazy after that. Then there's the issue of not being able to find things. For the last few trips, they have been packing their stuffs on their own. Mom used to do all the packing for both of them.
At 4 sharp, it started to rain and rain.. and still raining now.
MAYDAY MAYDAY... we got hit! we got hit! MAYDAY MAYDAY...
Now its 8 hours later. After a very heavy dinner at the cafe and Harry Potter, we came back to a very happy Dommy who's been left home alone with just the tv on to keep him company. We just went out for 4 hours. But to a fluffy, 4 hours would seem like eternity. He greets us with so much happiness that it seems like we've been gone for days.
After the Kaboom... our electricity tripped and everything was darkness. I did mention that i live on thunder lane. When there's rain and thunder, its best to just lie low and just switch off the internet and everything else. Today i decided to drag on a wee bit longer as i was waiting for a response from work. And the kaboom did the honours and switched everything off for me. *LOL*
Its Piper's birthday today and he's 6. Its been 6 years since this little fiesty fella came to us.
Piper (puppy year)
One morning, my sister came up to me and said... i think i want to have a dog. As usual, i'll go on about dog keeping and loads of stuffs and responsibilities and the fact that we were living in an apartment and out the whole day working. Keeping a dog would be quite out of the question at that moment.
In the evening when i came home, there was Piper greeting me with a tiny woof. And there was sis... smiling sweetly. She went.. tadaaaaaaaaaaa!
We never have a dog living IN the house all our lives as kids. We did have dogs... many dogs.. but they all live in their big doghouse in the garden. And there was this tiny little fella in his dog crate staring back at me. *LOL* And that was 6 years ago.
I grew to love him and he became my best friend while i was still living my swinging days in Kuala Lumpur. He took care of me and stayed beside me all the time when i was sick. Sometimes checking on me by sniffing near my nose to check whether i was still alive.. *LOL*
We fed him a lot of green peas with his kibbles when he was little. He loves oranges and sweet potato. And he's fat. Overweight. It came about after he was "fixed".
He has destroyed quite a lot of stuffies but the longest lasting one is his Pikachu.
Piper & Pikachu
This little dog is quite a funny sort. Always fiesty and have a mind of his own. Stubborn and never went for obedience school. Still as stubborn as ever... and still very fiesty. But very cultured. Somehow, he doesn't quite like to mix with other dogs. Even Dom. But he does love Dommy's company.
Piper has an air about him and probably thinks that he's human. He struts when you say that he's handsome and when you put his collar with the red bell on him, he's automatically transformed into a flamboyant pooch.
He got tons of nicknames over the years. From his name Piper, some people (who is hard on hearing) calls his Wiper or Viper.
Using the dog age calculator at Pedigree.. here's how old our little guy is.
(here's the link http://www.pedigree.com/02All-Things-Dog/Dog-Age-Calculator/Default.aspx)
In human years, your dog is 40 years old and is considered a senior dog.
40?? are you sure??
We are all packed and ready to go :) We are just waiting for morning light and then we can be on our way. We'll take some pictures of our pawty and come back next week to share with you guys. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Our paws, fingers and toes are crossed for Sam. He just had a operation to remove some lumps. Do jump over to visit him.
And dear Wilfee... many life lessons to learn from the PON. My must visit each day.
To da Booker Man and Asa... thanks a lot for the early birthday wishes for Piper.
