Sweet 16

Our Kess is sweet 16. That makes her equivalent to about 85 years old in human terms. Happy birthday sweet girl!

We weren't sure if she would be able to celebrate this birthday as she was diagnosed with oral osteosarcoma (bone cancer in her jaws) late last year. She was given 3 months survival without invasive surgery to remove all the tumor and chemotherapy. We've passed that mark. Recently we started her on Chinese medicine, including Yunnan bai yao to prevent oral bleeding and to make her life as comfortable as possible.

Each day is a gift. She continues to have good appetite and is fairly active for her age. We love you, our dear beagle.

Who is mirroring who?

As we mentioned earlier, it is very common for these two beagles to encounter buffaloes on our walks.

Guess who is mirroring who?

It's been too long...

This two beagles have been absent from the blogging world as there has been lots of stuff happening in our world. Since our last post, we've moved to the countryside and are loving the green space and nearby beach.

Our walks are so much more interesting now as there are lots of wonderful trails in our neighborhood. It is not uncommon for us to encounter a buffalo or two on our walks. Generally, the buffaloes ignore us and given their size, we've learnt to ignore them too ;-)

Warm and dry ;-)

Kess is 13 and it shows...

Kess turned 13 last month. See how she has aged. In her earlier photos, her brown and black coat is distinct, and her muscles are strong and defined. Now, her coat has turned whiter, her neck sags and her hind legs muscles have turned soft.

But you know what hasn't changed in her thirteen years? Kess' nature is still as sweet as ever. She is still our shadow, trailing us around the house as we go about our chores and she still loves to EAT, scavenging for food on the kitchen floor, on our walks, in the garden... Typical beagle!

Following birthday tradition in our household, Kess got a special treat on her birthday. This year Kess and Mia got roasted meatballs and bread served on a bed of regular kibbles.
But that's not all, grandpa had sent some money for treats for his two favorite beagles, so as result, the birthday celebration extended beyond the actual day with some yummy venison treats. Kess wasn't happy that she had to wait whilst her photo was taken with the treat so close yet so far...

But she was one happy beagle when she finally got her venison tendon treat!
To top off the awesome celebration, Aunty E was visiting us and decided to make a treat for the hot summer days - frozen yoghurt, peanut butter and bananas doggie ice cream. Needless to say, Kess and Mia thought it was Christmas and birthday rolled into one! All it took Kess was one gulp to gobble the icy treat.

After that, it was time for play as Mia and her went for a round of doggie sumo wrestling. Happy Birthday my sweet girl!

How Much Is the Doggie in the Window?

Do you know the song:
"How much is that doggie in the window?
The one with the waggly tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
I do hope that doggie's for sale"

Well, my human was walking down the street one day and this is what she saw - It was the cutest beagle figurine in the shop window of a luggage store.
When she got home, this is what she saw - one the cutest beagles on the block waiting for her human to come home. Now, whilst my human loves her two beagles, she would have loved to add the beagle figurine from the shop window to our home. Unfortunately, that little one was not for sale...
