Goodbye, Oreo!

“Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love, they depart to teach us about loss. A new dog never replaces an old dog, it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs your heart is very big.”  – Erica Jong

Our beloved dog of 10 years crossed the Rainbow Bridge five days ago. We somehow prepared ourselves of his eventual passing since he was really sick for the last three weeks. But we are still devastated. We miss you, Oreo! :'(

Dog Appreciation Day

Our old pooch Oreo is 10 years old. It seems like yesterday when he’s just a little fur ball who loves to play bite. Our legs and feet bore the brunt of his play biting. We love him even when he’s just grumpy most of the time. He is still the same Oreo who loves belly rubs.

Oreo is 3 years old in this photo.

Happy National Dog Day, Oreo. We love you!

National Dog Day or Dog Appreciation Day, is celebrated on the 26th of August. As an all day event, you can celebrate with your furry best friend for as long as you want.  

Speedy would have been 11 years old this year

Speedy was our first pet turtle. A good old neighbor gave this critter to us in 2008. We enjoyed taking care and playing with it until its unexpected demise a few years ago.

We badly miss Speedy and our other pets that already crossed the Rainbow Bridge
