Fun with Grandma - Part One

Things are a little quiet around here today because Grandma left last night. :( I miss her already! Since, it's a slow and quiet day, I thought I will arrange some photos and review the last three weeks with all of you.

The weather was erratic, sometimes rainy and sometimes freezing cold. On a few occasions, not sure if it was due to the change in the weather, I had the runs and vomited. So, we ended up not having too many outdoor activities.

When Grandma first arrived, they went to Costco to stock up on lots of foodstuff and more importantly, treats for me!

Besides shopping and feasting on Taiwanese delicacies, Grandma also went on some sightseeing when the weather was good.

There was one fine sunny day where we attempted a second trip up the Yang Ming Shan National Park. It was a long and winding road up the mountain and I threw up my breakfast in the car. Many cars were lining to go up as well and we didn't know how long we will be stuck in the queue, so finally the decision was to go to the groomer's for a bath since I had soiled myself rather badly. Sigh! Another failed trip! When will I ever conquer this mountain???

On another day, Mom tried her luck and called up the Zoo to ask if she could take me along! Silly Mom! Of course not! All kinds of pets are not allowed into the zoo! So, they went without me!

Welcome to Taipei Zoo!

Turtle Power!

Lovely butterflies.

A butterfly that camouflages.

Big Black Bear.


Some scary amphibians.

More zoo friends!

Hope you enjoyed this little introduction of the Taipei Zoo.

Hi Dino,

Your Granny looks young.

I had the runs (bloody stools) and been vomitting about 2 weeks ago. My vet said there's some virus going around in my neighbourhood. Anyway, I'm better now. I hope you will get well soon.

Your grandma looks so lovely, Dino! She looks like such a fun person in all the photos - I'll bet you had a fantastic time with her.

Such a shame about the zoo! It is the same for the zoo here in Auckland - I think maybe all over the world, coz they don't know how the animals might react to seeing a dog? Anyway, the photos are great!

Hope your tummy upsets have settled down now...

you have one cool and lovely grandma there Dino. Bet you really missed her as we bark.

Your folks seemed to have a great day eating and going to the zoo. It looks like your zoo has sufficient space for the animals to live in. I hope theyr'e well taken cared of there.

As for your failed mountain trip, i don't think it ended badly when you got a bath in the end. baths are good and i absolutely love it, don't you?

We hope to read more of grandma's visit. We missed you.

Drooly kisses,
