Missing the warm seas of Singapore

I, Benny !Xobile Setho, hereby declare that I miss the warm seas and waters of Singapore...and the coconut that comes with it. Its been about 2 months since I've arrived here in California...and yet I can't imagine ever swimming in the pacific ocean. Its freezing!

Thus this entry is to reminiscence my last tropical beach fun in sunny, hot Singapore. Here I was at East Coast Park just daydreaming. A strange presence was near me. I sensed a round tough fruit that came along with a floppy tongue.Hmm...*ponder*

AHHHH! What a face, its Coco-NUT!

As usual, she very speedily imitates my actions. We quietly sit together and stare hard at the 7-eleven, secretly wishing for anicecream.

Prayer: Dear Lord, please send me a lovely cold drink or ice cream...

Anyway, we got some cold water and went on our way... this is the pose of "smartness". We are learning to be Water-Smart and attempting to read the nice pictures.

Notice how windy it is? CocoNUT's big pooofy tail is a pawfect anemometer you know?

Whoa! Those palm trees and even my tail started to move with the wind!

What a nice beach eh?

Ooh! Grass...rub rub...*goofy grin*
(btw, the scarf around my neck is a cooler. Mummy soaked the gel thing in water and freezed it before she put it on me so that i'd stay cool. Nice eh?)

Whew, it sure is hot. Think i'll snooze here of a second.

Onwards! We found a lovely breakwater to sit on and watch the horizon. Isn't it pretty?

Here's the sticky little gal. Think she worried that i was leaving. Yah ok...i miss her (heard she developed a Benny-syndrome lately. Haha!)

CocoNUT couldn't sit still for long.

We pursued getting as sandy as our wee legs would get us... This is Aunty L's (CocoNUT's mummy) shoe print. Big and flat.

This is one of ours. I declare it to be CocoNUT's. I will explain why.

Look closely, you can see 2 distinct corgi tracks. One is deeper and more "claw-like". This means that the dog that left THAT print sunk deeper in and needs to claw its way out due to its...uh...lowness. =P

Tah Dah! Can you see? Can you see who left which print type? =P

And we're back where we started... It was a lovely day and I miss Aunty L, Uncle D and CocoNUT deeply. =)

Happy Barkday to MUMMY!

9th July was Mummy's barkday! I had a fun time with Mummy - she brought me out to Castro Street. There was going to be an event there in the evening so they had started to block out the roads and stuff. It was nice and empty! =D

There's always time to smell to the flowers...notice little white flowers on my head? I did poke my entire head in one of the previous bushes... heh.

Look! They are setting up a stage for some band to sing! Looking right...

Looking left...

Wow Mummy! This is the best type of Castro street time of day for a doggy walk ever! (Mummy: Yes I agree. Less chance of utter embarassment when u poop in the middle of the walkway. =P)

Mummy dropped me off in the car (parked in sheltered area of course!) so she could make a quick stop at a store. As expected, I'm the well-behaved corgi-in-a-car. Can u spot me? I'm there...really...staring hard at Mumy while she took this picture.

This is me up close. =D

When it came time for dinner, Daddy whisked mummy away. Uncle M joined in the celebrations. They sneakily brought mummy to Chessecake Factory (I can hear Snowy's mummy going "Ooh!!!"). They had cakes for dessert and the factory was nice enough to decorate mummy's plate! Look!

Candles were bought for Mummy in advance. The big 3-Oh.

Here's the forever "young" Mummy with her cake!

I love this photo of Mummy and Daddy. Where am I???? *wah!*

See all the cakes together...*drool*

This is a photo without flash. Place is really dark eh? =P

And finally a group pic with uncle M.

Mummy had a great barkday! I'm glad she's happy! Thanks to every one for your barkday wishes and emails and gifts to mummy! Thanks! Thanks! Thanks! =D

This is the usual handsome me...

This is the peek-a-boo...what-on-earth...why-do-i-looked-shocked Benny face.

Sigh. The things humans do to us nice loyal doggies. =P
