Photo Hunt 071: Numb

This photo was taken several ago when one of my dogs, little Lily, had a nasty fall. We brought her immediately to the vet and, after an xray test result showed a fractured left front leg, she was immediately sedated for surgery.

My poor Lily! It took awhile before the cast was taken off.

I remember this very well because when we took her home from the vet, she was still groggy. The vet said the injured leg was still numb from the anesthesia so she was unable to move properly yet.  My heart instantly went out to her. She looked genuinely sad just by looking at her eyes and obviously wanting extra TLC from me and my husband. And we did, but my husband and I couldn’t help but laugh at her cast though. It was bigger than she was.

Litratong Pinoy #37: maHUSAY

Kumusta, mga ka-berks sa Litratong Pinoy? Opo, nandito pa ako sa Phnom Penh. Nanahimik lang ako ng matagal at pansamantalang nagpahinga sa pagba-blog. Ang totoo niyan e inatake ako ng matinding katamaran. Nung naisipan ko namang bumalik ulit e nagkataon namang nawindang ang template codes ko dahil sa mga pagbabago sa Gugel Sayts. Heniweys,  pagkatapos ng  ilang araw na pangungulit sa designer ng template, naayos na rin at here na me again (baduy!), nagbabalik sa lingguhang  kodakang Pinoy.
Mukhang mangangamatis yata ako sa mga weekly challenges natin a. Ang hirap hanapan ng mga litratong tumpak sa tema. Tulad ngayong Huwebes, husay ang ating tema. Napa-esep-esep tuloy ako – sino o ano kaya ang entry ko? Naalala ko, may bago kaming kasambahay. Makulit, sobra. Hindi man siya kasing-talino ni Max, ay sobrang husay nito sa maraming bagay.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Joe…
Mahusay itong mag-tago. Lalo na pag bath time o  may nagawa itong kasalanan. Odi kaya’y pag nakita niya akong may bitbit na camera.  Camera-shy siya e. Notice the bald patch on his right leg? It was shaved when  he suffered from a severe case of diarrhea and the vet had to  put an IV  on to rehydrate him.
 
Mahilig siyang tumayo sa likod ng drayber at kumahol, na para bang nagtatanong:
Ar we der yet? Ar we der yet? Ar we der yet? Ar we der yet? Ar we der yet? Ar we der yet?
Mahusay mang-asar!
Kahit na medyo camera shy si Joe ay mahusay  siyang magpa-cute… 
 
 …kaya naman madalas ko siyang kuhanan ng litrato, lalo na at kapag nasa mood ito. Kuha ko ito  sa aming munting hardin, nung mga 3mths old pa lang siya.

 

PhotoHunt #030: Lazy

adogslife

In 2006, I was assigned to the coastal town of Kep and the whole family – me, my husband, and our dog Max – relocated. We stayed in a guesthouse on a hill with a sweeping view of the Bokor mountain and the Gulf of Thailand. Almost every day, after lunchtime, we all retreated to our hammocks on the mini-patio and spent the lazy afternoon enjoying the view. The breath-taking view and the refreshing sea breeze lulled us all to sleep, Max included.

Furry Friday #001: Max

This is my first entry for this week’s Furry Friday.
max, 8weeks
Max, half-breed Keeshond, age 8-10weeks old

When we brought her home, she was a very quiet dog and liked to keep to herself. This was taken days before she contracted distemper. A cocktail of injections was given by the vet to her everyday for 3months. Luckily, she survived. Except for her bad teeth and excessive shedding, she is very active and healthy.
