Testarossa "Tessa" has found a home


Today (January 29, 2009), Tessa is finally with her new family. We were advised by my auntie that a common friend (supplier to be exact) of ours is actually interested in having a puppy. It's actually her first time in having one. She lives alone with her maid and doesn't have kids. I hope that Tessa will be able to fill the void in their home when her pamangkins are not visiting her. Mga kids, be nice to Tessa. She's quite shy kasi.

My auntie actually told us that she would be getting a male. The one she should have had if only her German Shepherd doesn't bite. As the days passed, I was waiting for my aunt to tell me when she would be dropping by to pick up the puppy. I was actually expecting her to arrive probably on a Saturday or a Sunday, when there is less work, most likely.

As the days passed, no news came. My auntie even asked me if she called me. I said, she did but it was purely business. I was starting to wonder if she will still drop by.

Just this morning, my auntie gave us a heads up that she will ask someone to come and pick up a female pup instead of a male one. Kasi ang mga boys daw, according to her bro, eh bad. Wawa naman mga alaga ko... Wag nyong pakinggan yan! Type ka nyan eh, sa totoo lang... hehe...

Probably around 3 or 4 in the afternoon, there was a doorbell and one of the boys checked it out and said it's XXX supplier! So I went out and asked the boy, "Is that Cely?" (since I don't know how she looks like). In my mind I thought, 'wow, she came?! I thought she would be busy in the office.' Any hows, it actually was good for her to be there so I can personally tell her the do's and don'ts.

I was supposed to bring the female pup down, but then I thought that she might want to see the boy, Momo. So I invited her upstairs, since the pups are doing their daily workout of running wild, karate-ing each other, pestering the older members of the pack etc etc etc at the terrace.
Cely and her maid was a bit afraid to go out coz some unhappy chap started barking . So I brought the two pups inside instead. They actually had difficulty choosing who of the two to bring home. But I think they like Momo coz he was so energetic and physically bigger compared to Tessa. As they were deciding, I was answering some of their questions and giving tips on how to care for them to which they listened attentively.

After much thinking, brother's advice won over. Personally, I would advice Momo since she's a first timer and Momo is like an energy ball compared to Tessa who's a bit shy. I hope and pray that they will be able to get along with each other (real fast). I did give them a print out of guidelines.. hope that helps them. I hope that when they encounter difficulties (knocks on ALL wood), they won't hesitate to give me a ring.

Tessa, you maybe missing your brothers and sisters (and us too); I hope that you will be able to start cheering up and get working on your "spunky" personality. Start snuggling, landi landi-ing, capture their hearts just like how your mommy did to your lola. (Si daddy? bato yan eh... ). I wish I can hear great news about you soon!

Brandy has found a new home!!!


Brandy is finally home!! Yehey!! This morning, my auntie Beth texted us to bring (another) a female pup to their place. She told us that someone would be dropping by to pick her up. I decided to bring 2 females instead so the said person could choose between the two. (And a male but that would be another story, hopefully soon).

At the last minute, I prepared their cage for transport. It's a good thing I didn't get scolded hehe..

In the car, the pups were practically whining all the way. And I thought all will be ok since I placed toys in the cage. Finally, they decided to stop and sleep.

When we arrived at our aunt's place, the person who's supposed to get a pup still hasn't arrived. So we (more like I) munched down the food offered to us. And after gulping down 2 glasses of water, my bro and I left to buy dog food (for the mommy; and stupid me, I forgot to buy puppy food) and buy jello at Greenhills. As we were driving back, my bro received a text message that "they" are there already. So we drove back, in the usual fashion we do.

Arriving back, there was Tita Len, cuz Mike, cuz Cae, and cuz Me-an!! Of course I knew it was them all along! Binibitin lang po kayo =D

So after much cuddling, playing (with the other pup/ dog of aunt Beth), running etc etc... They finally decided on Brandy. Although Cae wants the FAT and NAUGHTY one =D

Ayan, eh di nagka reunion sila ni Cloe!! Good luck Letlet!!
Mike!! Panu yan, dalawa lang ang braso mu! Saan na matutulog yan =D Sabi ni Jay sa ulo nalang (parang si Jazz) or sa dibdib hehehe...

Thank you po sa inyo!!

Cleopatra "Cloe" has found a new home!!


Cleopatra AKA "Cloe" (Just thought of the name a few day/s ago , hirap naman pag identify sila as puppy 1...) is finally home!! Our Tita Len was supposed to drop by a week ago but since she got sick (and still is -- get well soon Tita!!), her brother dropped by to pick Cloe up.

At first, we thought that they will postpone dropping by since it was around 4:00 and there was still no sight of them. But at around 4:30, someone rang the doorbell. And there stood Tita Len's Bro (sorriieee.. can't recall his name )
carrying two bags of goodies (grabe tiba tiba kame sa pagkain yummy). So I prepared her box, since the puppy food, doggie book and a toy had been taken care off earlier. I even got scolded (a little), bakit daw ngayon ko lang inaayos. Eeee.. it won't take long naman eh. So I accompanied him to the gate, so he won't have difficulty, just in case Cleo decides to jump off, which she thankfully didn't.

An hour later, mom wondered loudly whether they are home already or not. And I said, nah, can't be. Ang bilis naman. As if in cue, the CP rang and it was Tita Len. Ah, nandun na pala sila.. my mistake. Cleo, you're home!! (Kahit office pa lang ).

We'll miss you! Lambing lambing mo kasi, kahit si bro sabi ikaw pa naman ang close sa kanya. But no worries, we know you'll be in good hands naman. Ang you'll have a playmate too! ........ err... Chuplada pala si Letlet hehe.. sa simula lang naman yan. They'll get along sooner or later.

Will be posting more pics of her... some time!!

Bodies... The Exhibition

Just this Sunday, I accompanied my mom to the salon. As we were waiting for her turn to have her hair trimmed, I picked up an FHM magazine (I think it's an October/ November issue - their cover girl was Jean Garcia). As I was skimming through the pages, my eyes were caught by the "Bodies... The Exhibition", more specifically, by the images. Getting curious, I read the whole article and boy, was I shocked. And by the end (before reaching the end, actually) I became fascinated and curiosity has grown in me.

Who would have thought that the day would come when exhibits would use (preserved) REAL HUMAN BODIES? Some are preserved WHOLE doing a specific action/ movement like kicking a soccer ball etc (excluding the skin to show what our insides would look like while in that state). Some were chopped/ dissected to show a specific human organ/ system. While some use only a specific anatomy of the human.

I managed to see images in the net and here are some (for the curious ones)



I guess that's enough teaser. I'm actually just borrowing (ahem ahem... please don't sue me) the images. Besides the others might just be to eww... already.

***Wishing the day would come for me to see this exhibit***
