3 Weeks at Gramps

We have so much to share after being away for 3 weeks, we don't know where to start. Since this is my blog, I get to share about my holiday at gramps first. After this, mum gets to share about Napoleon and Ginger, 2 awesome dogs she met during her recent trip to New York.

I know when my humans plan to be away. I always have a bath and get my ears cleaned. The grooming routine by itself is not unusual. But, when mum starts packing my bedding and towels into the car, I get suspicious. Then, when their suitcases come out and they start packing their clothes, I know for sure they're going on a trip!

Anyway, I don't really mind coz there's so much to do at Gramps. In fact, I like going to their home so much that I actually walked there by myself once. Gramps live opposite a playground which is a hub of activity in the mornings and evenings. I get to meet all my canine pals again coz the playground is a favourite spot for dog walks. Spotty, a spaniel mix, who lives behind gramps' home is a particular favourite pal. I've known him since he was a wee pup. We always have a good sniff session. Lots of other doggies will always stop by the house for a smell session. It's like Grand Central Station!

In addition to my four-legged friends, a little 2-year old boy who lives down the street also loves to come by and say Hello. Initially, he called me "Dog". "Hello? Dog?" That could be any dog on the street. But, I forgive him coz he didn't know better. Anyway, Gramps told him my name is Kess.

Gramps loves to exercise. After our morning walk, she continues with her exercise. Naturally, my doggie instincts kicks in and I watch her like a hawk to make sure nothing happens to her. Occasionally, I bark my displeasure for being left at home. Then of course, there are the squirrels in the garden. I tell you, I am constantly on the look out for these nasty lil' squirrels who loves to hide in the garden.

Then there is the FOOD. Gramps is truly Chinese. So I get to eat rice with my kibbles every day. Hurray! I love rice. Aunty Evie also bought me some treats. But she makes me perform tricks first (Mum must have told her...). Anyway, I usually pre-empt the commands coz I am so programmed to do tricks for treats.

Anyway, the 3 weeks just zoomed by. Before I know it, mum & dad are back and I have to say goodbye to my canine pals and the little boy who lives down the street. What a great lil' holiday.

Kess! It sounds like you were the talk of the neighborhood! Maybe everyone put up notices saying that you were coming...maybe!

I think they did! It sounds like your Grandpa and the entire neighborhood enjoyed having you around for the vacation!

Hope you are recovering well with your mom!
