Beach again!

We went to the beach last weekend coz Tommy's dad says Tommy has not gone to the beach since his baby brother arrived, which is almost 6 months! (The last time we went to the beach Tommy didn't come coz he just had his bath). I hope when my baby sister arrive I don't have to wait that long to go to the beach.

Anyway, I was the last to arrive, and my M got me a new beach toy, right out of the plastic wrapping. Unfortunately, before I have much chance of playing with it, Tommy got to it first. He even ignored his own rope toy.

Tommy: Who wants old toys when there's a new one?

He got my toy! *sulks*

I tried to complain to my MM but I don't know why he's trying to keep me at arm's length. He kept trying to push me away. Doesn't he like me no more? (M:That's because you SCRATCH him with your nails!)

Me: Tommy took my ball!
MM: Stay away from me!!

Why? Doncha love me anymore??

So I have no choice but to take the rope toy.

I'd rather have my ball...

My ball was so popular that even another GR, whom the humans thought was my big brother herbie look-a-like, took it.

But herbie doesn't like toys!

I'm still not getting my ball back

Tommy was so greedy that he took Joey's ball as well. You can't see from this photo, but Tommy actually has 2 balls in his mouth, Joey's smaller one inside and my big orange one outside.

Gimme back my ball!

So after that Joey kept a very close eye on his ball.... or rather he tried to.

Where did it go again???

So when I finally saw that my new toy (now not that new) was untaken, I leapt at the chance!

My turn finally! I leap...

And leap...

And leap again...

Still not done leaping...

Until I finally got the ball...


Besides all the ball activity, I need to maintain training on my superpowers, so I practised flying again.

I also tried to practice breathing underwater, but I think that's too advanced for me... for now.

And I swam with my eyes close, to train my other supersonic senses.

I wonder if that's the right direction

Of course, my M had fun taking awful photos of me. She was laughing at my running photos, saying that when I bounce up, my eyes are opened...

Nice big eyes

But when I bounce down I have funny droopy eyes...

small beady droopy eyes

And I have beady droopy eyes when I shake as well.

Deformed eyes

But there's this peekture she likes, she says I look so puppyish in here, then I told her I AM still a puppy!

Anyway, after all that swim the humans took us to blow dry and have lunch again (they had lunch, we had nothing).

And I'm glad to say that this time, my tail was not broken. Maybe less posing did help!

Oh Helios, you went to the beach too? Looked like you had fun! That Tommy is greedy & should not steal other doggie's toys. Those pictures of your eyes are too funny!

Love licks,

Hi Helios,
Thanks for dropping by at my blog. I hope you and your family do not mind me bookmarking your interesting page in my blog. I had been reading about you and Herbie since a long time.
Yeah, I was talking to Miss C. Wong last week and we realised that I had met your M a while back in Sg. Indeed a small world. Send my regards to your M!
