Scuba's birthday

It was Scuba, the bull terrier birthday last Friday.

HC brought us to celebrate his birthday with him. (read : eat his cake! lol)

Our presents to him (HC: ya right... Joey tried to steal the presents back from Scuba a couple of times, luckily I managed to remind him it was supposed to be a 'present' and you can't take it back. lol)

Scuba's mum bought him some cookies and a cake (see later pic).

Since it was his birthday, HC decided to do something unheard of... she encouraged Scuba to take the dog cookies from the human table! That was a NO-NO for all of us.

But Scuba, being the most gentle and s-l-o-w (as in movement.. not intellect, ok?) dog need lots of physical encouragement.

(Note from HC : Scuba is unlike any bull terrier, or any other dog for that matter. He's very gentle, has a good temperament, sleeps alot (like 22hrs a day), walks a little, He spend whatever little waking moments in a trance-like state.... he's a really sweet but peculiar dog)

HC formed a 'bridge' for him to cross to the table.

It took him like 5 long mins and baits to get him to cross the 'bridge'. LOL

Finally... he's m-o-v-i-n-g.... s-l-o-w-l-y to the target.

Can u see Jack waiting patiently behind the table? I was actually right beside Scuba, like a jumping kangaroo!

Can you save some crumbs for me, Scubs?

Finally his cake!

Scuba thinking if he should eat it?

Then he decided to slowly lick the cream off!

We got so impatient with Scuba that we were screaming our lungs off. It took a long time before the humans decided to do him (and us) a favor and cut it into smaller pieces.
We had fun that night. Who's birthday next? MINE! And I want a double storey house, with an extra attic, ok? oh.. and maybe a large garden?


Last weekend, we found a secluded spot to walk off-leash. This area is out of bounds for cars and almost deserted! Thanks to BJ & Cookie's owners for bringing us there.

A few weeks ago, HC bought us a huge water-filled pad as the weather was very hot. However, we refused to sleep on it cos it is not as comfortable as our 6 inch thick bed. So HC had to resort on putting the pad on our bed.

Jack enjoying his new cool pad.

HC also received a gift from Auntie SK - my late girlfriend's mum.

It is a very heartwarming book! Go get one and read it!

Cob Corn

This is possibly my cob corn #4.. or is it #5?? oh.. I can't remember but is my favorite chew toy.

I have to wait patiently for HC to remove the packaging and her mini-training (sit, stay, wait, speak etc.. OMG.. can I have it NOW?).

I love my cob corn.
