a new family member…

it’s a Daschund
a 2 years old female
beautiful color Red Tan
got it from a friend.

First night was really hard
she was crying all night
scratch the door with it’s paw
I couldn’t sleep well

Washed her in the morning
with my kids shampoo
Smell good and look good
put a green scarf on his neck

She is defenitely loveable
follow me everywhere
lay up so I can touch her belly
love when I took her out for walk

but sometimes she get too possessive
barking at strangers
even at my niece and nephew
who like to visit our home

Her name is Niyomee
She’s the new member in our family..



Did I tell you that we have a new member in our family? Her name is Beyonce. she’s a Min Pin.

For a long time, I, who grew up in the family who always have dogs, wanted to have one for myself, but I always  debate that there will be too much trouble about it. The kids are too young and my sisters, who are my neighbour, don’t really keen for animal. We once have a cat and named him Zero. My son got it from a market when we went  shopping.  Edgar always have a passion for animal, that’s the second time he brought home a cat.  One day for some reason my brother-in-law throw the cat over the fence.  I took my kids in the twilight to look for him and found him in the road in the back of our house. After that he keep on ran away but we always found him even when someone had brought him to their house. The  last time he ran, we still try to look for him but couldn’t find him, so we gave up. My son then try to have an ants farm, but the ants keep on dying on him. 

Anyway back to Beyonce. She’s a present for my son 7th birthday. Many friends have adopted dogs, and the wanting for a pet increased.  Couple months ago my husband said that we will have a dog, he showed us a picture of a baby Min Pin, and we all fall in love to her right away. When she was about 2 months we went to visit her, I remember she was shaking when my son hold her. Then on Sunday September 12, right on my son’s birthday, we picked her up. It’s so funny because Edgar acted like a mom when it comes to his dog needs. She made sure Beyonce is drinking or having the vitamin. During the first week, she was crying every nights because we didn’t allow her to sleep with the kids. At first it’s kind of annoying,  it’s like having a baby all over again. But now she’s get used to sleep alone, she’s not crying anymore.

In fact having a dog is not as hard as I though, since she stay in a cage, she is pee and poop in there. My son’s duty is to clean after her every morning and noon after school. If he was too tired, I asked my maid to help (By the way we found a maid as well). Horey for that! She (i mean the dog, not the maid) eat 2 times a day. Last week-end she had diarrhea. I was a bit worry but the breeder really help to tell us what to do. Now she’s fine.  I bathe her every 3 days, when she get really stink, and let her play around the house when we’re not too busy. She’s a very aggressive dog, jumping and running all the time, try to bite on clothes or things that she found. I try to train him to sit and do other things, but not consistently. Now every time I call home, naturally I will ask my son or maid “how’s beyonce doing”. She’s truly has become the member of our family.

Now I am thinking of having another dog. What do you think?



I want you to meet Pedro. I would like to say that this handsome dog is mine but that would be a lie. Because I wasn’t the one who take care of him and I don’t even know what kind of dog he is…

When he was born with some of his siblings (his mother is my parent’s dog), I instantly fall in love to him. And i told my mom that he is mine. But since I live in the neighborhood who didn’t like dog, and hardly any maid (cause most of them are Moslem) like to take care of dogs,  I never take him home with me. He stay in my parents house and Pa Aki (my parents’ gardener) took care of him. I just come once awhile and play with him.

I guess Pa Aki took care of him really well. He feed him good meats, and I was surprise because Pedro get so big and so handsome. I feel bad I didn’t took him at the first place, because the bonding between us will be much stronger.

I grew up always having dogs in my house. And I love puppies, but once when I was young, my puppy died from car accident, I was so hurt, I remember cried when saw him buried under a tree in the back of our house. And I said to myself that I would never love any dog like that. Since then I never have one on my own, just the family. But deep in my heart I want to have a dog, one that waiting for me to come home, one that walk with me in the morning, one that I can hold and teach to do things.  I am not really picky what kind of dog I would have, but I like a big dog with lot’s of hair.

I promised my son that one day I’ll allow him to have a dog. He love animal too, he brough home a cat one day, and even though I don’t really like cat, but the one whom I name Zero live with us for about a month,then runaway.

 Couple months ago my mom said that my Dad will give Pedro to someone else, because he became old and grumpy. Once he run after people on the street and bite someone, even though not too bad. When I heard this I feel so sad. I went to my parents house and thinking to spend our last time together. I was crying, but then my Dad cancel his plan cause my Mom told him that I was so sad. So Pedro still around. I  just wish to spend more time with him.
