Large fries please, thank you!

Yesterday was a fun day. As usual, daddy brought me along to fetch mommy from work. Although it was a public holiday (Vesak Day), Mommy had to work. Poor Mommy. I decided to give her a good hug when I see her.

Little did I know that Mommy had some surprises installed for me! 3 to be exact.

Surprise no. 1, a giant play pool!

Surprise no. 2, a yellow frisbee to go along with it


 And surprise no. 3, a new ball for me. Yay!

Our initial plan was to head down to East Coast Park in the afternoon, but there was a torrential downpour islandwide. =(  So we decided to head back home and play in my new play pool!

Along the way, daddy was feeling a little hungry so we stopped by McDonalds for a snack.

Can't wait for the food...

Feeling a little nervy now...

Resigned to wait...patience is a virtue...

Once we got home, daddy and mommy set up the play pool. They were trying very hard to get the right water temperature. They did not want me to be swimming in a freezing pool! 

Because it was my first time in a pool, I started off hesistant. But Daddy and Mommy encouraged me along the way.

Testing water....

Hey, this isn't as bad as I thought and I'm a natural born swimmer!

Posing for the camera...

Playing water polo...

Mastering the doggie stroke...

Now that I've conqured the mini pool, maybe next time I can attempt the sea! Woo hoo! 

Oh and here's something paw prints!

You are so gosh darn lucky. French fries and a new pool and toys. Did you get to eat some too? Mom gives us a couple of peices when she buys a burger but she doesn't give us people food very often except for meat.

Toby said we shouldn't fuss because she does give us lean meat and chicken pretty often (the Vet says it's OK). The bad part is she doens't give us our regular food along with......BUMMER!! She does give us cheese too to help us take our medicine.....we hate medicine so she is very sneakey and folds the cheese around our monthy heartworm and flea protection. Shame on her for tricking us like that!!

Jacks likes to go with Mommy to Sonic and he does the same thing you did.......he pokes his head out the window but he's begging for a treat and he usually gets one.

Some kind of mischief is going on outside and it woke us up. Mommy wouldn't let us go and check it out---she said it's not safe to go out late at night. She let us read up on you, Lorenza and the Dashsies until we calmed down but it's 1am here and Mom said its back to bed for all of us.

Keep on taking such good pictures !!

Hugs & kisses from us......Mona, JACKS, Toby and bradley too!!!

Ruby Bleu said...

Hi Reina...
What a fun time!!! I love your pool and your frisbee and your ball!!! Lucky!!!! Did you get any fries???

Lots of Licks, Ruby

reinadoxie said...

Unfortunately, I did not get to taste the fries. I was just helping my Daddy order.

Mommy and Daddy are very strict with my diet. =X

Lorenza said...

Hi, Reina.
My pool is very small compared with yours! Yours is huge! Don't you think its great being in the water??
You are a great helper for your Daddy. My mom is also strict with my food.
Have a happy weekend

geosen said...

geosen said...

I bet you're nice and cool now!

Love ya lots,

Pearly said... got a pool... ...i could only use a tub... can i join you even though i can't swim..hehe

Copper said...

I have never been in a pool but I love to go to the drive thru with my Mom and Dad.

reinadoxie said...

Hi Lorenza,

Mummy saw the pool your mum bought for you and decided to get me one too! All thanks to your Mum!

Hi Maggie,
You dad looks like a very good swimmer! Maybe we can have some competitive swimming one day :p

Hi Pearly & Hershey,
Come on in cause i can teach you to swim!

reinadoxie said...

Hi Mona, Jack, Toby & Bradley!

Mummy stuffs pills within the cheese to trick me into taking the medicine. But they can't fool me. I ate the cheese and spit out the pill :p

Hi Simba,
I didn't. I should have gotten a Hotdog with Chili!

CJ said...

Reina, i have contacted my auntie and she will be bringing ur sister to my house one of these wkend and you can have a family gathering at my place. Cheers! Remember, keep yourself dry..

Dachsies Rule said...

Oh, your pool makes us think we might like that. We don't like baths but it might be fun to splash and play as long as no one is spraying us. We will have to remind Mom about your pool so she will get us one. Even if we decide we don't like it, she should spend the money on us.

Roxie, Sammy & Andy

reinadoxie said...

Hi CJ,

YAY! A family reunion!!! I can't wait. Don't worry, the water is warm and Daddy prepared 3 towels to dry me up that day :p

Hi Roxie, Sammy, Andy!
Swimming is really fun while baths are a little less fun :p

Luckie Girl said...

Hey Reina,
Do you wanna share your pool with me?? :) hehe... I like that pikture of you at cute!!
My hoomans are bringing me to Bontanic Gardens next weekend. If you are free, you are welcome to join us. My Dad would love to take some shots of you.
We will be posting on the forum to see if anydog else is interested.

Mona,Jacks, Toby too!! said...


I hate to have to do this to you but Mommy said I have to tell your Mommy another way she gives us our medicine and it is foolproof........Mommy said it works everytime.

She gives each of us a dollup of peanut butter with the pill covered up. We LOVE peanut butter and there is no way we can't chew the pill when we lick it off her finger. We told her it wasn't fair that she tricks us like that but she doesn't care. She said if it keeps us free of heartworms and fleas then it is justified-whatever that means. We really don't mind because down here in Texas those mangy blood suckers are the size of
tennis balls.

Please don't be mad at me because I gave the secret away. Love you Jacks and the rest of us too!!

reinadoxie said...

Hi Luckie,

Come in and join me in the pool! I would love to join you at the botanic gardens! I want to take superstar shoots! Let me know when yea?

Heya Jack!
Thanks for warning me of this trick. I hope my mum won't read this!


Hana the Dog said...

Wowie Zowie!! I LOVE your pool!! Not sure if I like the water in it, but your pool has pretty colors. I've never seen a pool like that. The ones I've seen here are usually just one color. Yours is really cute!

Hey, are you and Luckie gonna have a meet up? It would be a good photo op since Luckie's dad is master of the camera! We will be looking for pictures of your meet up!!! Is Luckie gonna swim in your pool?

reinadoxie said...

Hi Hana,

Hopefully Luckie and i will be able to meet up soon, together with some other doggie frens here in Singapore.
I can't wait to be snapped by Luckie's father. I will look so pretty in his pictures!!!!!!!!


Peanut said...

Did they give you any of that mcdonalds? Your pool looks like fun (well actually it doesn't but you seem to like it so I thought I would say that)

Nachos said...

Yay~!!! Next time we can go swimming together...~~~
Murrey loves swimming too... Slurpee doesn't thou. so you are safe from her if you are in water~~ Gigi loves to sit and cool down in water.
