Iherb Shopping - 99ct Shipping offer

We have just received a piece of good news - our regular online vitamins store - www.iherb.com is offering US$0.99 shipping offer!! This offer will ends on 31st Aug 2008 (I guess it's US time).

We were about to order some stuff last week, but thanks to HC's busy schedule (or rather, lazy mode), she has been unable to. Sometimes, one do get benefits when you procastinate!

For those new to this site, do use HC's referral code SIB351 - you'll get US$5.00 off.

P.S. I hate the rain....

Beach Outing

We left the house before dawn break this morning as I am worried that it might rain non-stop like the other few days.

I had fun swimming and retrieving balls. When I am tired from the swim, I will just chill out by the shore with my ball.

Trying to sink my ball...

Sometimes, my ball tried to run away...

But he is no match for me

Since I am not unable to drown my ball, I decided to bury him in the sand.

Digging his grave..

HC complained that I messed up the beach with my digging.

How it looked before I started digging.

End result!

Isn't it beautiful with all the potholes?

I'm bored....

I am officially bored....
didn't go anywhere yesterday (HC : Grrrrr.. I took you to play ball at our estate in the evening, remember?)

And today, I thought we would go out after HC's finished her work... and it had to rain!

So, I end up eating flies the entire day!
(HC : yes, Joey was really trying to eat a fly that was flying around him. I had to tell him "Stop eating flies"... but I think he might have ate it already!)

I am really really bored...

Pampered Life

After HC said I had a 'pampered' life.. I realised that the other creatures in my home enjoys a pampered life too!

During the day, when the weather gets too hot, the little creatures get to swim in their very own clean pool!

Spotted - a baby lizard coming out of the pool!

New 'things'

HC said I shouldn't be complaining about a boring 7th birthday... as I'm a very pampered (really??) dog who has alot of new 'things' almost every other week.

So.. she reminded me to post these pictures.

A new collar?

Don't I look smashing? Ermm.. actually I look smashing all the time, with or without collars.

New toy.

Besides trying to 'kill' the bird, sometimes I am very loving and sleep on it.

So... I guess I am luckier than most dogs..

My 7th Birthday

It's my birthday.. and HC would have forgotten all about it if not for a reminder by Auntie V :(

So, HC cancelled her appointment at night in order to spend some time with me.

She said she bought me a 'cake' from Delifrance.

Ermmm... is that a cake? or leftover 2-day old pastry from the fridge?
It was hard as a rock and as tiny as my little paw. Worse is, I had only 2/3 of it, as Jack had to eat some too.
There are NO PRESENTS this year, and NO CELEBRATION (WITH REAL CAKES AND COOKIES) with my friends!!!!! What's happening??????
HC explained that I had presents (i.e. new toys) every other week or so, so it is not important to have any present on my birthday. Most importantly, the person I love (which is HC - according to her *roll eyes*) spend the day evening with me, right?
Oh well, I did have fun in the park with HC..... sigh...
(HC : I used to really look forward to celebrating birthdays with my dogs - but somehow not this year. I guess it is because having birthdays mean that they are reaching their old age. it is the same with my own birthday too... hahahha... I have stopped counting the birthdays since my early 20s..
I was thinking back when Joey came into my family home when he's a mere 3 months old puppy. He's mischievous, naughty, hyperactive.... I remembered the damage he did - chewing off part of the wall, chewing the legs of tables and chairs, dragging Jack's bed across the hall with Jack STILL SLEEPING on it, stealing human's socks and lingerie and ran around the house happily, eating my mum's high blood pressure pills...
I am so glad that he has passed his naughty phase. After 7 years, he has become a very good companion, and the bond between us is indescribable... I knew exactly what he is thinking/plotting even before he act it out. I am so glad that he is still very active and healthy at 7 years of age... and I hope to have many many more years with him, and of course with Jack)

Too many visitors

Max is gone !!!! YAY!

His mum and human brother came to pick him up in the evening after HC returned home from work. Max was so so happy to see his family again! HC reminded the owner that Max's AVA tag is coming off, and advised her to also engraved their personal contact number. If they had done that, HC would be able to call them directly instead of waiting for the next morning when AVA is available to assist.

Anyway, Max's family said that Max should be enticed by the workers nearby with food cos he is very greedy (which explains his waist size!), and that Max was all along very well behaved and do not wander off on his own. He is so well bahaved that he won't step into the house until the owners give the okay (think they have a garden for Max). But they did say that they will fix the gate properly as it wasn't very secure.

Max's mum was very nice and gave HC a bottle of wine, chocolates and a thank-you card. HC gave the bottle of wine to her neighbour cos they sponsored Max's food last night. (We couldn't feed Max as we do not have kibbles at home, and all our fresh meat in the fridge are not enough to feed him! hiak hiak hiak)

Max finally left after some small talk made by the humans.... and Jack and I were so relieved to have HC all to ourselves again.

I think we had too many visitors this past week. First, we had Willy who left early this week, then now this Max!

We really need to have the bed to sleep on (HC:selfish bugger!)

Let me show you how I was denied a place on my own bed!

The injustice!


More waiting....

Finally, I couldn't take the waiting anymore and found a small spot on MY bed!
