The weather has been stinking hot for the past couple of days, and I am pretty glad that my new (much) shorter hair cut is keeping me cool. In fact the heat had been so bad that it's given mom a migraine (again).

Ok I am marking the lamp post... The humans claim that I have no more pee left in my tiny bladder to squirt out anymore, but hey, I still try.

And then of course we have to end the walkie with the obligatory photoshoot...

Oh and last but not least, here's the crazy pup trying to act all innocent and sweet for the camera.

I overheard a conversation between the humans one evening... it started off by someone saying that my fur looks long and messy, and my nails are too long. It was followed by a chorus of various other people agreeing. Before I know it, that someone picked up the phone and booked me in for a grooming session tomorrow. **HORRORS** Spending 3 hours in the torture chamber is NOT a good way to spend the weekend!!

It'd be nice to have some company but Hershey is spared from it because her fur does not require much maintanence, other than the usual brushing. This isn't fair, I tell you... Look at me, do I look 'messy' at all??? **sigh**

Mom is back from the faraway place called London, and due to jet lag, she hasn't been much fun to be around with yesterday cos she is always sleeping/ feeling sleepy, or when she isn't sleeping, she is grumpy and grouchy. We found some photos in her camera and London seems like a very lovely place. She hopes to go back there with dad one day for a vacation (and hope they take us with them!!)

Since she isn't up for a trip to the park, we spent Sunday lazing around and doing a lot of snoozing. Hopefully we can go to the park next week...

After barely a week of returning home from Japan, the big suitcase is out again and Mom started throwing in many winter coats, woolen scarves, and leggings. She says that she is going someplace far and cold. This will be a much longer trip than the last (14 hours in the plane each way) and she won't be back till the weekend. Well at least she got to spend her anniversary with Dad yesterday.

Our Dad and Mom thanks everyone for your lovely wishes for their anniversary!! Dad gave mom a pair of earrings from Tiffany. Mom loves the 4 little silver hearts as they each represent Dad, Mom, Lucas and Chloe.

Mom being ever so practical, bought dad a laptop bag while she was in Tokyo. Can't exactly say that it was a romantic gift, can you?

07 Mar is a very special day for Dad and Mom. On this day 12 years ago, they 'officially' became a couple after Dad held Mom's hands for the first time on the pretext of leading her across a road. They were on the way back to their hostel after a group date with a bunch of friends to the Moomba Festival in Melbourne. The interesting thing to note is that there are no cars on that stretch of road because that road was closed to all traffic for the festival!! It was pretty funny but Mom allowed Dad to contiue to hold her hand anyway. This day in 1998 marked the start of their future together.

On this very same day 2 years ago, Mom returned home from a business trip from Tokyo realized that she had forgotten to buy an anniversary present for Dad. He had bought her a matching set of Tiffany necklace and bracelet for their 10th year anniversary, and the necklace has 10 silver hearts, each one representing the number of years they had been together. Mom was mortified, totally guilty and 100% embarassed for not getting him anything, and promised that she would make it up to him. Little did she expect that on that day, she would give him a son, their firstborn, their little Lucas.

Sadly as you all know, mom miscarried Lucas after a short 14 weeks.

I wish their story has a 'and they lived happily ever after' kind of ending but unfortunately, that's how it really is.

Mom gave Hershey and I each a new toy that she'd bought for us from Tokyo over the weekend and I am very pleased with my blue ball 'cos it sure can squeak REAL loudly!! I am going to try squeezing it at 3am tonight.... the humans will be so thrilled!!

Mom just arrived home from a work trip to Tokyo and bought some things for us!! She didn't have much free time, so could only make a quick dash to a pet shop in the city to get us some pressies.

I (Huskee) have got 5 toys and 2 bags of treats while Hershey only got 1 bag of treats and 1 pink Elephant kong (it is written on the tag that the name of the elephant is 'Dexter'... wonder if it is in anyway related to Mango's little brother Dexter??). I am no Math genius, but I think it is clear who is Mom's favouritest pup.

Our poor dad fared even worse, he only got 1 pressie from Mom. This coming Sunday, the 07 March, marks the 12th year since they first dated/ became a couple, so that's Mom's anniversary present to him.

Here are some random photos that mom took during the trip... She had sushi and sashimi for dinner 3 nights in a row and I think she's still not tired of it yet!
