How I spent the first day of 2009

I was already snoozing before midnight and Dad and Mom sneaked out to the roof top to watch the countdown fireworks exploding from the Taipei 101 Building.

The humans ate and ate non-stop during the holiday season and sadly, I did not get to enjoy their human food, but Mom did not forget to prepare a special meal just for me on New Year's Day!

What's for lunch, Mom?

Lamb, carrots, broccoli and rice!

How long do I have to wait?


Chomp....the bowl was cleaned up in no time!

After a satisfying meal, we went to my favorite dog park.

I got to meet some new friends.

We had a good little chat.

The vet says I am fat and need to lose some weight.

What do you think?

There is a cold wave right now in Taipei and I feel like cuddling up to take a nap, but before I do that, I would like to introduce a new friend, Sephy the Shiba Inu and Shania the Siberian Husky from California. Check out! There are many excellent articles there about the Shiba Inu breed, dog training and problem behaviors. Remember to stop by at their blog ( too! I am sure many of you will enjoy reading it as much as I did!

Keep warm, my friends!

Dino you look nice and healthy. Dogs should be a little plump. You look very handsome. Your vet is sorry to say wrong.
