Chinese New Year Pawty

Last Friday evening we all went for a Chinese New Year pawty which was organized by Amber the Big Dog and her Family. Before the pawty started, I played at a small open space near their house which double-up as a training ground for dogs. However, the obstacles there was a little too challenging for me so I just walked around instead. At 7pm there were a few people but by 8pm more than 20 persons and many more doggies arrived. Wow, I was excited and exhausted already by then when all those doggies and their Hoomans turned up one after another !

Hey, Spotty ... can you spot how many furkids are there ??

Chilling out in the living room.

Me taking a rest and watching everybody else. Oops, I've lost count already !

There was delicious food for me and Hoomans too. I enjoyed all the special dog treats made by Amber's Mommy and when I wanted to have some more later, there were none left! I guess everydoggy lurved the treats a lot.

Dog treats - baked cakes and chicken liver

Guess what, the Big Dogs went around each Guest asking for pawty favours ! Chloe and Faith waited patiently for some nice food in front of Coolboy. They are so good at this that within seconds the Big Dogs were enjoying pieces of Kentucky Fried Chicken. Hmmm note to self, I must learn from them and impersonate their threatening "Please can I some more food" face.

The Big Dogs - Faith and Chloe (L-R) can be very persistent in their quest to have a piece of chicken. Finally, Coolboy could not resist their charming faces and gave them each some yummy Kentucky Fried Chicken.

The pawty was like a mini dog carnival with food and games. I participated in 2 games - "Best Tricks" and "The Fastest Eating & Drinking Duo". In the video below, I was a nervous wreck and touched the wrong place but I got it right the 2nd time. I also performed other simple tricks - sit and circle around.

The second game was The Longest Sit Stay. Faith (below right) the Sit Stay "champion" was there just to challenge the rest not to break their stay. Duchess (below left) came in third place. Both of them look so regal in their positions, don't you think ? The third game was the fastest eating and drinking duo. In this game I had to eat a piece of cocktail sausage whilst Nicejellybean quickly drank her cup of water. The Duo that finnishes everything wins a prize.

Later, our Hosts entertained and performed a few tricks for all of us. I enjoyed watching this one - The Elephant Trick by Amber and Chloe

Oh did I mention that the Big Dogs are crawzy about tennis balls. They have eyes fixed on balls that no matter how high or far you throw those balls .... the Big Dogs always manage to catch them. Amazing !

Chloe and Amber (L-R)

Throughout the evening, I could not I could not keep my paws off my new friend, Bosco. He was so light and fluffy. I had fun chasing and playing with him the whole night.

I was tad overly too friendly that I think Bosco was kind of relieved when I went home with Coolboy and Nicejellybean. Hee, Hee.

I also won prizes in those 2 games and that made my Hoomans so happy. The prizes were 2 delicious muffins which I gobbled up as after-dinner dessert the next day. In addition, I also received a screwball dog toy. (so happy)

The pawty was well organised and I think everybody felt at home at the Big Dogs' house. Although I was the only Pug at this dog meetup, I had no problem networking with other new friends but I felt more at ease with breeds my own size. This is one pawty I'll never forget. Awesome !

Healthy Diet

Nicejellybean does not like me eating especially canned food although sometimes I like having Cesar Lamb in moderation. She tries to prepare simple and nutritious meals that are low in fat and salt for me. It sounds bland and tasteless but it actually smells really good. Here I would like to share with everydoggy the recipe for chicken, kibbles and vegetable stew. Whenever Nicejellybean prepares this yummy food for dinner I would finnish everything without fail till my bowl's spanky clean. I luurve it a lot and I always want more. This is a meal I don't mind having every day !

-1 potato peel and diced
-3 carrots diced
-1 onion diced
- tomatoes cut in half
- 1 piece chicken thigh or drumstick

Bring half pot of water to boil and add in the chicken, onions, tomatoes and carrots. Simmer and after 20 -30 minutes put in the diced potato into the pot. Next, simmer the soup for another 15 minutes and off the heat. That's it ! Very simple.

Once the vegetables have soften, scoop out some carrots, potatoes and shredded chicken. Mash everything and mix together with kibbles.

Does it look yummy or not ?

Do not disturb me. It is time to dig in.

I am quite the messy eater once I start eating. The food tend to splatter everywhere !

However, I usually finnish all my food and lick clean the whole bowl in the end. BURP. Yumz.

Actually hoomans like it too. This is Nicejellybean's bowl of stew with macaroni. For hoomans, do add a dash of soya sauce and a pinch of salt for flavour. Do you have any recipes which I may try ? Please do share with me your recipe for a nice meal.

Chinese New Year

This year Chinese New Year is held from 7th February to be exact and the festival lasts for 15 days. Over here in Malaysia, the festival is celebrated on a less grandeur scale as compared to the people in China/Hong Kong Kong and Taiwan. On the eve, we all attended the REUNION dinner at my Grandma's house and we also enthusiastically wore red on that night. She cooks the most yummylicious and delicious dishes for this special day. My hoomans ate sweet and sour prawns, fried chicken wings, fried fish, green vegetables, duck soup and pork stew. Me = zero.

But OOoooo ... I smell different kind of foods around the house these days. Hee hee, I smell (anti-clockwise) mandarin oranges, pork jerky, nian guo, sweet rice crackers and pork floss. I ate some pork jerky and boy, it tasted gooood that I insisted on having more. Oh no, I think me .... and Nicejellybean have really put on weight after eating and eating and eating for the past 4days ! Boy, we were stuffed. Somehow, my weight has increased to 7.9kgs so Coolboy decided that I should go on a diet until I am back to my ideal weight of 7.5kgs. (shucks!)

I also wore so many new clothes because Nicejellybean bought 4 outfits for me for Chinese New Year. I think because she believes it is good luck to wear new clothes on the first, second, third and fourth day. She bought them cheap from the 'pasar malam' ( weekly night market) and 1 -2 year old baby section in Carrefour Hypermarket. I likey them all because I look like a pwetty chinese princess.

The favourite red "cheongsam" which I wore for the Reunion Dinner on Chinese New Year Eve.

Pwetty flower and butterfly motifs on my dress

You are my yellow sunshine dress

OK time for another change of outfit

me wearing a frilly pink dress

Doncha I look like a pwetty Princess ? Where is my Prince CHARMING , where ?

I call this my most oriental one because of the dragon motif at the back.

Nicejellybean has even bought a cute outfit for my Valentines Day which you must see ... in the next post.

Wishing You & Your Family "A Happy & Prosperous 2008" & "Gong Xi Fa Cai"! We hope that everyone are having a wonderful time celebrating with their family and friends.

A Basketful of Toys

I certainly know where to go looking for toys and playthings. I choose my toy or anything that catches my eye from this basket.

I do have a special liking towards this hairy lion which may soon be a 'bald lion' because I lurve to munch on his hairy mane. Sometimes, the lion's hair did not digest fully in my stomach and it comes out from my butt when I poo. It can be quite disgusting and embarrasing when that happens ! Afterwards, I was banned from playing with the Lion and it was hidden away from me.

He is my best buddy and I like to snuggle up beside him for an afternoon snooze.

However, when I loose interest in my toys, I leave them lying here and there on the floor just like that !
