The Monster Revealed, Cheesy Tarts & Calendar

Now the moment you guys have been waiting for... I present to you something soooo frighteningly scawie, that it will practically make you pee in your pants. Are you ready for this guys? Okay, here goes nothing. May I present to you, The One, The Only, Theeeeeeeeeeeee... MONSTER!!!

Okay, it doesn't really look exactly frighteningly scawie but wait until it comes to live. Good thing it's beige in color. Imagine it was black, hairy & has red eyes? oooOOOOOOooooooo...

Oh dear Lord, why do I have to endure this torture...?


Gosh, can you hear how loud it is??? I was not happee at all but look at Faith! She wants that monster to be blasted into her mouth. I think she's nuts! How could any dog like this this this thing? I don't understand... I mean, would you?

According to my mommy, this is actually a multi-purpose vacuum cleaner. It can vacuum up rubbish, vacuum up water & blow out dirt on the floor or any corners. So instead of my hoomans buying the real professional soooper hair drier for dogs which can cost up to a few thousand dollars, why not they just buy this which only cost RM159 (US$477). It does the same thing & it does a good job too! I don't think sooo...

But anyway, what it actually does is it blasts off the water on our fur. Unlike the normal small hair driers, they take a looooooooong time to dry. But this 1600 watts hair drier, dries us up 5 times faster than any normal hair driers. And it makes our hair fluffy too! See how good we look after we're done!

That's me! Don't I look gooooood?

Chloe looks good too!

Hey, look! A statue! Okay, it couldn't do much for Faith but it did make her hair stand up a bit... She obviously wanted more of it.

The day after the cookies galore day, mommy baked some more goodies
& this time she baked, cheese tarts. We kinda like ate most of them...

Mmm, they smell good!

Yummylicious bebe!

I got one...

My sistas too. Look at Faith's concentration...

Last week, we received a LOT of mail(we as in us, not our hoomans) becoz the mailman disappeared for no apparent reason for a few days & then came back again to deliver us the cards & this!

Tofu-Burger sent us this! How sweet & thoughtful of him... Hey, I see little Girl Girl right there! Wow, are you really that small GG? I have no idea how small hammies are coz I've never seen one personally.

Look, there's US! We're on February together along with Huskee Boy, Verdi & Gaucho, Butchy & Snickers, Akira & Shiro & of course, Tofu-Burger! Isn't this just pawsome?! Damn, we look fine in this picture...

Here's me giving a smoocheroonie to Tofu. A big thank you to you my dear friend! My hooman M was sooo desperate to find a calendar for next year & she sure was happee that you send us this one!

Tomorrow is New Year's Eve in mah country, so I'm sure there'll be lots of huge huge fireworks going on at midnight. I love watching fireworks! I find them fascinating & bloordy loud! I hope you guys have a bigger & better year next year.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of mah friends!!!

A very Happy New Year to you girls and your family too - hope 2008 is wonderful for all of you!

I love your blog - your human is always sharing such great food with you guys and those fur drier things should be banned. HM takes me to a place to get bathed where she can dry me with those and I HATE it - she tries to tell me it's no different to wanting to stick my head out the car window but it is I tell you - those humans are so stupid inventing a dog fur drier that makes so much noise when our hearing is so good compared to humans!!

Thanks so much for your trial tips too - I've passed them on to HM and we'll definitely get there early so I can sniff around first - she learnt her lesson after being late to a few obedience and agility lessons and has sworn to never do that again hehe!!

You are right we also lose 10 points for toileting in the ring - I'll do my best to empty myself beforehand!!

A lot of people do the food on hands thing here too - HM is also planning on putting treats in her pocket when we leave home and using them for warm up exercises and taking them out just before we go in so her pockets still smell like food - I haven't yet decided whether I'm going to play along with this little game of hers though :)

Mack said...

Look at that Faith! I think all vacuums should be murdered in their sleep - they're basically evil...
Faith has too much...yes, the evil one!
Anyhoo, pweese oh pweese send me some a those cheesy tarts. I am drooling outta control over here.
Happy new year!

Katie said...

I hate fur dryers and vacuums too. I hope you are coming to the corgi lounge party, as we will be there. Those cheese tarts look fab. Our mom made us some sweet potato treats. WE will blog about them later.

Comet and BLU said...

That monster was really really scary! That was very brave of Faith to try to save you by letting the monster attack her mouth.
Hope you have a very happy new year!

Maya and Kena said...

Lorenza said...

Hi, Amber
Yes, you don't look happy but sure Faith loves that monster!
Your mom is mean showing those delicious cheese cakes! I am drooling and I can't have one!
Tofu is very nice sending you the calendar! My mom ordered ours like a month ago and we are still waiting for it!
My best wishes for you, your sisters, your mom and all your family. Sure 2008 will be a great year for all of us!
Kisses and hugs

4xBs said...

HI Amber, that hair dryer thing is funny. it's hilarious that Faith wants to eat the air. that made us laugh. hee hee. but we're with you. we wouldn't like that at all. our mom can't dry our hair with anything. she just towells us and lets us dry naturally. it takes a very long time - sometimes 5 hours for Baxter who has the thickest hair.

that was really nice of Tofu to send you that DWB calendar. we saw your picture. you dogs sure are good at posing together. that's why we don't have a picture on the calendar - because we won't let mom take a picture of us all together. - well, maybe next year! hee hee


Amber said...

AHHHHHHHH, the monster! that's the most frightening monster and is LOUD! I can't understand Faith at all, but it sure is funny and amusing when she do that! LOL!!!! Yummy CHEESE tart!! *faint* HAPPY NEW YEAR AMBER MAE, CHLOE, FAITH, MELISSA AND YOUR FAMILY!!

big hugs and licks!
Amber :)

Frasier said...

Those cheese tarts look yum !
I hate vacuum cleaners

Bai said...

Oh, I tot your mummy use the monster to "suck" your loosen fur, hehehe, coz my mummy always wanted to do so.

Wishing you a Happy 2008 ahead ;)

Huskee Boy said...

Hi Amber,
Yay.. I am glad we are Mr and Ms Feb!
For the record, I HATE vacuum cleaners.. YIKES!

Ripley said...

Oh, Amber-Mae! What an indignity! How can your mom say she loves you?? Maybe we should start a new group, Dogs Against Vacuums, to protect this kind of abuse? But, you'll need to explain it to Faith because she's not helping our cause any! Anyway, here's wishing you, Faith, and Chloe a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year! Also, here's wishing each of you lots of squirrels to chase!

shushu, momo & kero said...

LOL, faith looks so funny in the video - she keep trying to swallow all the air from the vacuum cleaner. My owner dry us up using towels and it take a looong time - she used a hairdryer before but i keep barking at it and run away from it all the time. She is considering to get us one of these vacuum too....yikes!
The cheese tart look super yummy and you gals are really lucky to get such nice treats.
Happy New year and have a wonderful year ahead!!!

Kirby said...

I hate those drier things. Mom and Dad use that at the self wash and I'm so not a fan, but you are quite lucky that your Mommy makes those yummy treats for you! Looking at those made me HUNGRY! Have a wonderful New Year!

Your pal,

sharkgila said...

Ha-woo. What a nasty monster. So noisy! But it does make you all nice and fluffy. My mommy uses a small dryer, it takes ages and I really really really hate it. I hope she doesn't get funny ideas and go buy the same monster as yours...

Happy New Year!


Crikit, Sparky & Ginger said...

Hi Amber-Mae & Faith & Chloe! Happy Happy New Year! oh what yummy eats ya'll got mmmmm

Hey, Amber!

You, Chloe and Faith look pawsitively FABuloso after your time with the vacuum cleaner/super dryer! All I know is that I try to attack the vacuum everytime it goes on.

You guys are sure getting used to the good life... cheese tarts, professional blow dryers... What next?

Tell Faith I love her look of intensity at the cheese tart! She is one focused pup!

Hey, I'm trying to catch up after being away from the pooter so much during Christmas. I haven't forgotten you, girlie, just getting behind alittle.

Happy happy new year!!!

Happy New Year to you & your family
