We (mum, dad, grandmum and me) visited petland. It's like one of the 2 or 3 petshops here in U.A.E. I didn't count the ones in the marketplaces. This is where Daddy bought those pressies for me! (now I remember)

Here I am at the backseat with grandmum..
Can you believe the variety of shops that I'm exposed to? boooring!

Here we are! it's straight out in the boonies.. sand sand lotsa sand!What kind of dogs are these? That black one looks bigger than me.. they have vewy long pointed ears.

This one looks like me but with pointed ears.. they're whispering.. I think they said Rabbivolution.. wonder what's that all about. Hey! I think I saw someone familar...Is that Boo and Suki??? let me take a closer look..

Nahhh.. that's definitely not Boo.. Suki????? Suki!!!!! Hey Suki.. what are you doing here in U.A.E.?

I think Suki.. or somedog who looks like Suki recognises me.. Look at her trying to step over the brown dog just to speak with me..
I'll try and get their names when I get back here! Now I have Doggies friends here in U.A.E., I hope they're still here when I get back. I heard they are on sale. Hope they go to good homes and I could visit them.

Here I am trying to figure out what to buy..

Daddy trying to tempt me with a big bone!I'm very curious about the cuz.. but they don't have it here in the U.A.E. petshops..

next time I visit here, I'll take picture of the toys as well.. Mommy ran out of battery.. hehehe!

My 1st Bathie...amongst the next many..

Help me!!! I don't want bathie!!! helf helf! I demand to speak with my lawyer before I'm prosecuted... noooooooo... I'm innocent!!!!

What am I doing here? Is this what they call jail? I demand 7-course meals on my stay here..

What the... water???? I'm telling you.. this is torture! After 1 hour of gruelling punishment..

Sniff sniff.. is that me? hmmmm! I smell nice.. But look awful!

I thought that was over.. or is it? Drying off and the brushing is alot worse!Let me dry myself..

Are you telling me it's still not over?*sigh* is this in exchange for my being sooo cute or the biting of the wires or the fact that you're taking me out and I have to smell nicey for the hoomans?

(Toffee's Dad: He's exaggerating.. he's very calm during the bath and he looks like he's enjoying it.. got a bit frisky during the brushing part).

My visit to the vet...

Hi furrends!
Leave it to my overly dramatic mum and my equally easily freaked out dad to turn a small pop into a nuclear bomb.

The truth is.. uhhh.. I had a eenie meenie teeny tiny bite of a spicy chicken which fell to the floor. I thought no one noticed.. but I guess my stomach did.

Anyhow, I got the chance to go out.. that's part of my plot to get Daddy to bring me to his office.

Whew, the consequences?
See for yourself..
1. I runned up the medical bill to a $100
2. I got injections (ouch!) - the vet said I'm very quiet during that time
3. I had to take medications - for deworming
4. soft food diet (no kibbles) - this is for 2 days.. it ain't bad because I can eat the Chicken and Rice (Royal Canin) instead of those boooring kibbles.

5. I got to go to my Daddy's office (a good thing)

6. I went back to my pen sentence (a bad thing) until I'm well.

Mommy and Daddy got suspicious since when I got out from the house, I'm not hacking anymore.. and I'm very keen to be in my carrier.. ooops.. my acting's a bit rusty..

"C'mon, c'mon.. we haven't got all day! I'm sick.. remember?? Now zip me up and let's go go go"
Mommy went to Daddy's office after work. When Mommy tried to check if I'm okay...

Bitey hand bitey hand!!! (Toffee's mum: He's okay!)

(Toffee's mum: I appreciate all the furry friends of Toffee for their concern and their inputs. I've told Toffee that it's definitely NOT the bath! Look at his reaction when I told him he needs a bath again..)

Bathie????? Bltpthpllltphhhhtt!
(Toffee's mum: now I'm sure he's definitely okay!)

Toffee's Sicky today.. (26-JUN-07)

Hi! This is Irvi (Toffee's Mom)!

Toffee was supposed to tell about his long overdue weekend escapade but he got sick yesterday evening.

Actually, I was home that time in the evening and he is his usual frisky self.. hanging with me.. following me around.. he was sort of hacking at one point but I thought it's because he's sneezing.

Toffee's Dad (Chris) came home a bit late and I told him about it. We watched him like a hawk over the whole evening (but no hacking was observed) and slept.

In the morning, I saw he had two spots on his bed.. I know it's not the pee as it has sort of solid in it and I told Chris to take him to the vet.

I went off to work and got a call from Chris that Toffee had hacked and vomited twice while he's at home and had brought Toffee with him to the vet.

Chris said maybe it had something to do about the bath. We bathed him twice. Once the last weekend and yesterday because we placed him in a pen on our hall and he had ran over his peepee pad so he got a bit stinky which we decided to give him a bath again and take him inside the room.

I do hope he's okay and We're really very worried about him.

It's just Mommy and me today..

I felt sad Daddy has to go to work today. But at least Mommy is here..

Mommy just went down.. are you thinking what I'm thinking.. please please I hope it's what I've been craving for!

She got back.. she's carrying a big bag.. is that it?

Yeah! she's making Frosty Paws!!!!!!Let me tick the ingredients.. zanana, honey, peanut pawter, yoghurt, doggy biscuit, water, blender.. what's that stars? (Thanks to Frasier and Frasier's Mum for the recipe!)

Yum yum! I have to wait until Mommy has it frozen in the fridge!

Mommy! Is it done yet?

After waiting endlessssssllyyyyyyyy... Here comes the result!Sniff sniff! I think it's okay now Mom!Kewl! Frosty Paws Stars!
Yum yum! up to the last drop!

My 1st Weekend (15-Jun-07)

Whee! Weekend! Wonder what's in store? After my ordeal last night I need a break.
Daddy and Mommy had to do household chores today. I decided to lend a "paw"
Alright.. So I have to do the laundry...

Wait.. Hey.. how can I get in the laundry basket?

Okay so.. these are the whites..

And these are the darks...
All these segregating makes me tired..

Now Daddy has to clean the house... I don't like this monster (that blue one)! I better silently move out before it attacks.. I'm keeping my paws crossed it wouldn't notice me..
Is it safe to come out now?
We went to this Marketplace to buy my leash. I saw many dreadful things that I don't want to show you..

We went in a shop.. the puppies look nice. They're in a glass jail. I feel sorry for them..

We went to another shop. This time, I feel more worried because they are in a cage. One of them looks very young. The shopkeeper said, she's new. I tried to speak with her but she looks spaced out. Poor little thing. I heard she's only 4 weeks old. Oh my, that's too young to be away from pawrents!

Good thing we left that dreary place.. Daddy decided to buy my leash elsewhere. Anyway, I don't need them yet since it's still very hot for a walk.

We went to Grandpawrents! I saw them for the 1st time! They were sooooo happy to see me! They gave me a soft ball. I better hide this ball before they take it back..

Wow! That's so many things done on a one day weekend. I think I need a weekend to recover from this weekend! I'm bushed!

The Night before my 1st Weekend.. (14-JUN-07)

I got invited to this Hooman party.. it's for a christening of house. Did you ever heard of such thing???
Here I am in my carrier..
Huh???.. there is not even one doggie in this bunch! I didn't met ANY cute doggie or hamsters or cat or anyone not hooman..

They kinda scare me.. so I stick to Mommy and Daddy the whole time. That's Daddy's wrist!
waaaaaaaaah.. hands keep pawing me! make it stop!
I think I like my bed better... Now I'm getting bored...

Finally, we're heading home... this is my 1st Hooman party.. overall. this is what I think!Priceless!
Wuffs! Toffee
