Converting a cat lover...

First of all....Happy Thanksgiving! =) I will post about my thanksgiving dinner next time.

As promised, this post is about an old friend of mummy's (from primary to junior college days) who came to visit and stay with us a couple weeks ago. Aunty M is really a cat person. She loves and adores cats and is even a bit afraid of us doggies. So mummy tasked me to make her love dogs, or at least, love me. =)

Wasn't hard. I'm an old-hand at first, thing is to greet with a goofy enthusiastic face that says "I'm friendly!" Apparantly it was a little overwhelming so i had to tone it down and slowly hypnotise her with my eye-power. Watch this:

Aunty M, you will realise I'm totally harmless. Aunty M, you will now scratch my chest.

Now Aunty M, you will pat my head (incidentally, the first dog's head she's ever patted. =D ).

Now that I have her under my powers, i can look away and pose for a picture with her. Easy peezy lemon squeezy!

She even got all up close and personal with me.

I like her. She would throw the ball and play with me too. She's nice. Hope to meet you again Aunty M! Last photo of 2 very tired people and one very skillful hypnotising corgi! *wink*

Its Winter-Coat time!

I've been shedding like a mad-dog. Is it my fault? No way... =P Its the all-natural doggy response to the reduction in daylight hours. The horrid wet weather hasn't helped and the rain means the construction completion will be delayed. Ugh.

The trees have been changing colour which is kinda pretty.

The daffies in the yard got confused and bloomed 6 mths too early. Hee...

Mummy can't stand my crazy shedding so she sat me down and started furminating me. Phooey.

Evidence of my mountain of fur. =P

Seriously though...look at my eyes. I'm totally innocent of causing mummy's allergies since I didn't do it (on purpose anyway. hee...).

Next post will be about me fulfilling my duties to the dog-world and transforming a 110% cat-person into a dog-person. =D

First reroofing?

Mummy's been pretty miffed lately. Our apartment estate is undergoing reroofing works and its been 2 weeks worth of dust and noise. They've finally started on our block yesterday which ended up with mummy sneezing like its spring.

Today, they tore off the old tiles and are hammering stuff everywhere. Thump thump...thump thump. Ever since 8am. =( The whole building shakes too. Yeah, I'm hiding under mummy's chair.

See the dirt that fell from the skylight which they are replacing... this is the sink.

This is just a small portion of the floor.

This is the skylight. You can see ALL THE DIRT its just holding up there. Arrgh.

Dear Lord, please help them to finish the works quickly. I can't go out into the yard too...not fun. =(
