Looking back at 2010

To those who have been with us through our ups and downs for the past year, may I say, "We did it!"
To those who we have met in our journey along the way, may I say "Welcome to our adventures!"

It's been a tough year for our dogs, and for many many other dogs in the world. Somehow, this year has not been good to us dog owners. May 2011 be a better and happier year for us all!

Here are some highlights of the year we'd like to share with you (all in chronological order!):

With my beautiful mommy.
My 2 week stay at mommy's parent's house while she was away in the UK.

During which time, momma Hana passed away (on Valentine's day). 

Grandma Laura's 10th birthday. Here I am giving her a birthday kiss!

My first outing to a park!! 

Also the first time I met my daddy Sunshine and half-sis Sweetheart!
Sweetheart and I
My Daddy! Are you sure I'm not half bear??

My first Obedience class where I met my BFF, Joey!
(P.S. At 6 months old, I passed puppy obedience with flying colours!!)

I learnt how to jump and do tunnels in agility!!

Posing with my friend, Happy

The first time I saw so many doggies that look like me!


The sad passing of my sweet Grandma Laura.

My first beach trip!

I also met blogger pal, Hero in the annual Dogathon!

And had my first swim in a swimming pool!

Uncle Mika also had a car accident and needed surgery.

I met with blogger buddy, Lian. She visited me with lots and lots of goodies :) 
She is by far my favourite person (apart from my hoomans, of course!)
She got me this pretty harness!

Uncle Mika had his second operation as the first was unsuccesful.
He has started swimming a lot and building up his leg muscle, 
which is looking really good now!

 I had my 1st birthday!!

Christmas already!


Before ending this last post of the year, I want to give a bit shout-out to our friends to kindly send their prayers and blessings to these two dogs who are suffering terribly. 

Sweet Misty is suffering from an unknown disease. Her humans are trying their best to keep her fit and healthy and she's already 12 years old! Please send her your prayers to get better soon!! 

Our other friend, Hero is suffering from a terrible disease known as Familial sharpei fever which attacks the sharpei breed very violently. His infections are getting worse and his humans have a lot to worry about. Please send him your prayers and well wishes for a speedy recovery!

And to end with, I hope you all have a  
Please don't get too frightened by the noisy fireworks!!!
