Doggy Sitting

Having a pet or pets at home is quite rewarding. Pets are good for your health, apparently. A cuddly cat, a loving dog: Some people are so attached to their pets you'd think they were part of the family. Well, as any pet owner will tell you, they are! But unlike relationships with human family members, which can sometimes be difficult and a source of stress, owning a pet can significantly improve overall health and reduce risk of disease.
When I moved here in the US from the Philippines four years ago, hubby and I bought a 3 year old half chow and half collie dog. And we named him BUDDY. Since we don't have Akesha back then, we treat him like our own son, and we even bring him to the dog parlor once in awhile. When Akesha came from the hospital, Buddy felt like his out of the picture. He maybe got jealous when Akesha arrived in our family, but now he's more than like a big brother to her. He protects Akesha every time we have people come over, or even when the doorbell rings. It is good to see them together playing, and it takes our breath away.
Once a year my sister-in-law take 2 weeks off vacation, and it happens that they owned a dog and nobody can look after their dog while they are gone. So since Monster and Buddy get along very well, she let us take care of Monster. A couple of weeks ago we doggysitted their dog. Akesha was having a great time with Monster, she was fascinated with Monster, and she follows him everywhere.

This was taken last December, 2007
One year and four months later, here they are now!

They're lovely to look at!

Btw Madam sis, am pissed w/ my i.c. for 2 days it's so slow! I can have it for an hour or 30 mins then the tower turned blinking that means the it went disconnected. I got pissed and makes so frustrating that in 2 days I haven't post anything to update my blog but now it's okey because we have already a good connection and guess what, they ask an additional 10 bucks every bill but that's okey according to habibi 'coz I need it everytime. heheh.. and now it's back for business.. hahah!
Before I forgot Madam sis, I have an award for you, here it is: http://www.cacainadjourney.com/2009/04/queen-of-blogs-and-blogger-award.html
