"For flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
For song of bird, and hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!"

-Ralph Waldo Emerson





Hope you have a lovely time and get to enjoy heaps of table treats!

Love you


Pee ess: You can probably tell that Mummy has gone back to work from our now customary disappearance from the blog world.



Day 16 Post Surgery. Our puppy brother is doing just fine.

No licking the wound. Absolutely NO attempt at removing the stitches. They are gone now anyway. COLLARLESS recovery achieved!

Back to full duties.

Pigeons and Magpies invading our balcony chased, the night guard with the loud whistle admonished for waking up the neighbourhood, every dried fallen leaf investigated (It is fall! Our potted plants are shedding and changing colours and looking sad), every stray on the street reminded once again that the neighbourhood park is exclusively our territory.

And yes, he is back to herding us all to bed at night. SIGH!

Does he imagine he is the pack leader?

Well, we don’t mind as much as long as he doesn’t boss us around. Besides we were a bit sad to see him so subdued after the surgery. The first couple of days he wasn’t himself. The generalised weakness post surgery wasn’t the only reason. Our super brave pup seemed rather jarred by the vet experience. Tail tucked in, ears folded, scared eyes – poor dear boy. Was it such a scary experience for him?

That is why we are so glad he is back to his normal self. Tail definitely upturned into his trademark ‘J’, super active 15 hours a day.

Our Puppy brother is all repaired and we are just so thankful for it.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the warm thoughts you’d sent our way.

We indeed are thankful for you, our friends, today and always….
