I was given the 'Arte y Pico' not just once, not twice but THRICE!! One was given by my good friends, Rudolf & Goofy, another one by Mango, the little Maltese AND the third by my wife Baby and her brother Boy! (Impawtant note: Baby even said on her blog that she gave me this award 'for being the greatest hubby in the whole wide entire doggi-niverse.' Isn't she the best-est? THANK YOU everyone for this honour!!

Here are the details of the award: - 'This award was created to be given to bloggers who inspire others with their creativity and their talents, also for contributing to the blogging world in whatever medium. When you receive this award it is considered a special honor." (Extracted from Origin, Sen-Chan & Tom)

4) Award-winners and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "
Arte y Pico"blog , so everyone will know the origin of this award.
5) To show these rules.

Many of my friends have already received this award and I want to make sure no one is missed out!! I give this award to Charlie, Moco (I am especially inspired by the post on 'The Poop-o-Matic'), Lady Kaos, Boo Boo and T-man.

I also want to share with you that mom had a major meltdown at work on Tue. One of her colleagues (that very same one whom I mentioned in one of my earlier posts that told her that it was time to 'move on and get over it') started talking very excitedly about one of her friend was in hospital and in labour and her cervix was not dilating and there was contractions, and the pain, and the nausea and blah blah blah... After putting up for about 3 minutes, mom just 'lost it' and walked out of the office. She sat at some smoking corner for about 45mins looking like an absolute fool as she was trying hard to hold back her tears (cos when she walked out, she did not bring anything with her, including tissue, and being the vainpot that she is, she had mascara on... Imagine this, woman sitting alone with mascara running down her face... Not a pretty sight at all!).

I guess she had been trying hard to put on a strong front in the office and pretend like she is ok, but perhaps she really isn't as 'ready' or as 'strong' as she thought she is. Mom wanted to shout at her to say that 'at least your friend is going home with a live, healthy baby, so please freaking stop whingeing and whining'!! Anyway mom is also totally, totally pissed off with that colleague of hers for ripping open her wound AGAIN. Twice is one to many...

Huskee's Mom --- I am sooooooooooooo emotionally and mentally exhausted after this latest episode.... After weeks of trying so hard, I am now back to 'square one'. Felt like someone stabbed me with a knife on my barely healing wound and twisted the knife before removing it. I think this colleague whom I have always treated as a friend really hates me deep down.

Simba said...

Your poor Mum, I wish I'd been there to give her a hug. That woman has clearly never loved or lost or felt anything.

Congrats on you award.

Maggie and Mitch said...

Congratulations on your award, Huskee!

Hi Huskee Boy!

So far, the only female responses to my ad have been from Clover telling me she's too young for me, and Dewey encouraging me to go after his Mom (!) who's already had two husbands! She's a cutie, though.

If this woman at your Mom's office is truly a friend, can your Mom take her outside the office for coffee or something and tell her how much her comments hurt her. She honestly may not be aware that she's being so insensitive. Once your Mom has spoken to her, if she continues to be rude, at least your Mom will know to avoid her as much as possible.

Ahh, we doggies are so much more honest than people, aren't we?

Your pal,


Sparky said...


Congratulations on your award, man! You totally deserved it!

We're still praying for your human mom, okay? I can't even imagine how hard it must be for her, so we'll continue to keep you guys in our thoughts and prayers...


Peanut said...

Some humans just don't think. I think this woman is one of them.
Congrats on your thrice award.

Lady Kaos said...

Thank you ver much for the award! I'm so honored!!!
BIG hugs to your Mom! That lady that works with her is really making me angry. WE may have to arange for Air Ruby to bring us to visit you and we'll all go to work with your Mom and tell that lady what we think of her!
We've been trying to make time to email your Mom and thank her for the name of that book and stuff. As soon as the house stuff is over and the new fast internet is hooked up, you will be getting an email from us.
More big hugs to your Mom!!

Hi, Huskee!
Congratulations on your Award!
Tell your mom that I can teach her some bad words in spanish. She can tell them to that mean lady. The lady will not understand them but I am sure your mom will feel better!
Kisses and hugs

Hi guys,
This is Ximui, Mango's brother.
Thanks for looking at the pictures again. A pic woths a thousand words!
Wanna be on the giant float with me?

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Huskee Boy's Mom,
How I wanted to be at your side right now to support you. I'll do any tricks to make you always happy and those insensitive people disappeared!
I don't know that Huskee Boy is married, you have a very lovely daughter in law.
Do you think I'm mature enough to get married?

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Oh, how forgetful, congras on the award.
Three time award? You win big, man!

Moco said...

As you are finding out most people do not have any common sense. Stupidity runs amok in the general public. It is not easy, but you must ignore this person. They have shown that they have no insight into anyone else's feelings but their own. We are hoping that they are just stupid and not evil. You must progress on your healing at your own pace. This has been a major trauma in your life and don't let anyone else tell you differently. You don't just get over it, sometimes you never get over it. The pain just lessens some.
Thanks so much for the award.

T-man said...

Huskee Boy, thanks so much for the award!! I am very honored!

That nasty work person sounds bad. People at work can be so mean, can't they? Just remember, you've got friends here.

Amber-Mae said...

I think she's purposely doing it so to hurt your Mom again. Why is she such a b***h??? I mean, like a female dog? I mean, worse than a female dog?! Ignoring & just taking in whatever she's saying & pretending that you don't feel anything will not solve the problem. Maybe your mom should finally stand up for herself & tell her colleague straight to her face that she's a real big fat JERK!!! Maybe you could be there to help her out. I know you have those nice shiny canines ready to use. I think that's the only way to make her shut up once & for all. Excuse for my language. I learned this all from watching HBO. Bad bad HBO! I think Mommy's gonna wash my mouth with clothes detergent after this. Please tell your mom not to be too stressed. We're still thinking about her...

Butt wiggles,

How tactless and unfeeling of that colleague to do that!

Keeping your mom in our thoughts.

Bebe Bahnsen said...

To Huskee's Mom--if you are not already doing it, you need to see a therapist. Your feelings are natural and there is a complete grief process that you will go through. But you can suffer less if you seek professional help. You may also need, at least for a short time, antidepressant medication. A good professional will know how to help you. But remember--your grief is natural and completely understandable. Just don't let it overwhelm you.

Harry said...

Some people are just so wrapped up in themselves, that they don't think about other people's feeling before they open theior big fat mouths!! Hugs to your mum.

Hi Huskee
So sorry your mom has to be with thoughtless people like that. Tell her not to worry about being sad. It takes time. Give her a lick for me.

I finally answered your bath question.

Hi, Huskee Boy -

Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations! (That's for getting the award three times).

Hi, Huskee Boy's Mom -

Kaci, Mama and I cannot understand how and why some people can be so insensitive. You are going through a rough time and there really is no timetable when grief should end. We all are sending you lots of paw hugs, regular hugs and kisses. We sincerely hope that your "colleague" will think before she says something but she is definitely someone who puts her foot in her mouth.

We hope you all have a good weekend.

Love -

Hershey, Kaci and Mama (Dianne)

Jackson said...

Congrats on your award Huskee.
So sorry to read of your mum's sad time at work. Perhaps her colleague doesn't mean to be unkind but is just rather thoughtless. Is there anyone else she can talk to there about it? Wirey hugs, Jx

Pacco de Mongrel said...
