Minty Freshness

Matchy nails and outfit. Nails grow at an alarming rate…it’s time for manicure once again soon!
Do you like my haircut? 
Got these mint coloured shorts at a steal from H&M a couple of days back and decided to wear them and take the dog, Domo to the groomer’s and run errands. Loving the clean palette I had on, I was glad to have worn light colours because it was so darn hot out. Was feeling slightly nervous about leaving Domo with a new groomer but am glad all turned out good when I picked him up. Love how spiffy and ’round’ he looks everytime he gets a hair cut! 🙂 Sneaked some burger bites in between and it was so good. Absolute comfort food, I love burgers and fries. Maybe I should have been born American! 
Haven’t been feeling too hot about things lately, but I got this quote from the drama I’ve been watching, Sopranos and it’s definitely helping me along:

“Sometimes I go about in pity for myself, and all the while a great wind is bearing me across the sky.” – Ojibwa saying
Stay happy & positive people!

Happy 4th Birthday Domo!

Domo, the Halloween baby turned 4 on 31st October. The sister and I decided to pack the family and the dogs to Botanic Gardens for a picnic and little ‘celebration’. We were really worried that a thunderstorm, as reported by the weather forecast, would rain on our parade, but we did a little ‘raindance’ or should I say, ‘anti-raindance’ and all was fine. 
I don’t think Domo understood what all that fuss around him was about, but here’s a lovely cake, just for you! It’s lamb, cream cheese and carob cookies. Absolutely divine in the doggie world. I placed an order for a slightly larger cake so that Domo could share it with his doggie friends, Moon and Toto. It was a pity that Toto was busy that day and could not make the party. 
Domo even got a birthday present from the sister! What a lovely personalised bandana. 🙂
We found that this was the only way to take a decent, non blurry shots of the two dogs – wave a treat in front of them and have them ‘stay’. 
And then it was time for the birthday boy to pose for pictures with his cake. I must say that he was pretty good at that too! He didn’t try and attack the cake at all. Maybe all that training school did pay off after all. 
He even let me put a little party hat on him. Haha. 

My camera-sensitive dog. Notice that no one else is looking into the camera? 
He got really bored waiting.
My mum insisted that he ‘cut’ his own cake. I found that pretty much ridiculous and was really tickled by the thought. We did it to humour her anyway. 
Being the gentleman that he is, Domo let his guest, Moon have her slice of cake first. 

 Finally! He lapped it up in an instant. 

Here’s the both of them looking happy and satisfied:

 Happy duo. Happy birthday Domo!! Live long and prosper!! 
Here’s an old picture to reminisce. He was a tiny pup! 

Mr Firedog Goes On A Date

My sister and I dressed our dogs up one day. Yes, this is what we do when we’re bored. Domo (poodle on the left) kept trying to paw his fireman’s hat off his head, and Moon kept trying to peel off her dress. They obviously weren’t quite as amused as us.


I am quite proud to say that Domo has quite an extensive wardrobe, because he’s vain like his owner. Haha.




Doggie’s Day Out!

A bunch of us took our dogs out one fine afternoon and spent a glorious day having a picnic at the Botanic Gardens.

Meet ‘Summer’.

‘Toto’

My sister’s new dog, ‘Moon’.

And ‘Domo’.

That’s Hercules at the far end. I didn’t manage to get a shot of him. And obviously, the dogs were really warm. Their tongues are practically reaching down to their chests!

Domo had this strange fixation for Moon’s ears. Couldn’t stop sniffing them.

Treat time! (a.k.a ‘I will do anything you want me to, and I’m the most well-behaved dog in the world!!’)

I really cannot remember what was so funny now. How did the boy keep such a straight face?
