Prancing In Penang

Man, all I can say is we had a fantaboolous time in Penang! Oh yeah, we did. Actually, we were supposed to go to Penang for the doggy trials but whoops! I came on ...yes... (wrong timing) and so I did not join any of them but my sistas did & they qualified for the OB trials. I on the other hand was still allowed to do my dance demo when all the trials were over. I did the Grease routine again & then I took a short break while my sista Chloe performed her bag of tricks. I then joined in with her & we did a duo performance together & then I performed more cool tricks by myself & closed the show. Everybody enjoyed it & I was one happy doggy!

Anyway, I'm gonna start this post from the 1st day we arrived in Penang. We stayed there for 4 days & just came back late last evening. 6 hours drive back home... Ugh! So this is gonna be like a long story post like the previous one about the Cherating trip. Enjoy the pictures & our adventure in Penang!

Here we are posing with our other doggy friends in front of our accommodation which is, Aurora Court.

While our friends head to the beach, we posed for more pictures. Awww, we're so cute! Can you see what's behind us?

Yesssss!!! Fountain /slash/ waterfall...

Ugh, can't reach it!

It was fun!

Just right in front of Aurora Court, is a bootiful Buddhist Temple. There the monks own many dogs that were let loose all the time so we can't really step in their territory as they weren't how do I put it? Very nice to us?

Now, let me be your guide dog & show you the inside of our Deluxe Two-Bedroom Suite. This is the living room. Quite spacious I must say but a little bit bare...

This is the master bedroom. Mommy quickly grabbed this room. Chloe & I sleep with her in here during night time...

This is the other bedroom with two single beds where Ms Owner (Hooman M) & Faith slept together in. Ms Owner joined the two beds together & made it as one. Smart woman. By the way, aren't we just cute posers...?

On our 1st night, our Ms Owner ordered some real Thai food from a restaurant which was just few steps away from where we were staying. The food were cooked by real Thai people too & can you guess how much all together it cost? Just RM60+ (US$17+) So cheap huh?

Woah, look at all that food! Are you sure you can finish that all or do you need some help???

Licking lips...

After all that hard work of staring & begging, I finally got my own plate of rice, deep fried kangkong (local vegetables) & fried chickedees!

The other two girls got some too. Faith loved the crunchy bones...

The next morning, we woke up early to eat our breakfast & then go down to relieve ourselves. After our owners took their baths & got ready, do you know what they did to me? They locked me in Mommy's room & then left with the other two girls!!! I was worried, started whining & was angry that they DARED to leave ME, the Alpha Bitch of the household, the Dancing Queen behind & go off to the doggy trials with the other two, without ME. Do you know what time they finally came back after the trials were over? They left at 8a.m. & only came back around 3p.m. Seven hours later! Oh, I was ticked off but then, I was soooo happy to see them again. I wagged my tail vigorously, jumped on my owners & greeted my two sistas. I forgave them both after that... We can never be angry with our owners for too long can we? Heehee!

Here's Faith during Pre-Novice down-stay exercise.

Here's a closer shot of Faith. Ooops! Looks like someone broke the down-stay... Faith did not budge at all.

Chloe's turn... She enjoyed the down-stay exercise alot as lying down is her favorite position. Mommy had so much confidence that she'll stay down that she didn't really bothered to say the "stay" command clearly to her. Chloe never breaks during this exercise.

After they all came home & rested for a while, our Owners decided to bring us somewhere really fun. Can you guess where we were heading to in this picture? Come on guess.


Here we come!

We reached there around 7p.m. so the sun was already beginning to set. But we still had fun!

The sea was pretty calm so we could go deep.

Chloe said the water tasted disgusting. She drank a few gallons of it & also vomited out some...

There were many people at the beach & I mean LOTS. There were many Arabs particularly & they were very nice to us. The Arab kids patted, hugged & played with us.

We met three not-so-stray dogs taking care of the beach. They belonged to somebody coz they had their collars & licenses on. There was mama dog, papa dog & baby pup who I think is named Miko or Neko. The people at the beach know them very well.

Here's Faith, happily running along the beach & playing with her imaginary friend.

We were still enjoying ourselves in the dark.

Chloe aka The Frog Hunter has become the Crab Hunter too. She found two glowing baby crabs running away & she tried to chase them but did not manage to catch them. The crabs glowed like fireflies. Kewl!

When we went back to our apartment room, we were washed down, dried up & fed. I wasn't all that tired yet & decided to play ball with Mommy.

She would bounce the balls on the wall & I would have to catch them. I manage to fall a sleep finally after playing...

The next day, it was a relax day for us. We didn't have to go to the event place till 4p.m. coz before that time, the Agility trial & Flyball tournament was going on. Our demo only started after all was over. We stayed outside of the hall where it was cooler. Our Owners made sure that I stayed far away from the males so that I didn't make them go, coo-coo...

The Fancy Dress game went on first. Both Mommy & Ms Owner were chosen to be judges for that game. Many of the doggies' costumes were creative & few of them could perform neat tricks. Our friend Scruffy da' Mafia won 1st place. He looked very pleased with himself...

Next it was our demo. Our friend Groovy performed his routine 1st before me. Ms Owner took a video of my dance but I didn't so so well this time but the audience still enjoyed it. No video of the Tricks performance though. I know, what a pity...

We finally collected Chloe's & Faith's medals & certs. I'm just posing with one of Faith's medal for her. Our Owners even received certificates of appreciation & two big boxes of goodies. Both Chloe & Faith qualified for the OB trials.

Just for fun. Okay, all the attention on me now. Don't I look gorgeous? Please say yes...

The 4th & last day in Penang, we went to the beach again this time early in the morning. Oh, it was sooo fun & there were hardly anybody there except some boats, banana looking stuffies floating about, people flying in the air with big colorful umbrellas (I have no idea why) & a brown pony giving people some piggyback rides. We kinda went after the poor horsie but we didn't mean any harm. Ms Owner managed to stop us from barking at it... The fella didn't seem all that intimidated by us. Thank dog it didn't kick us!

Here we come again!

It was a nice cool day & it was about to rain.

Chloe saw this boat & started barking at it. I think it freaked her out...

Here comes the "Three Beach Babes"...

Why does Faith always have that worried look on her face? Funny girl.

Faith always tags along like it's her duty. BOL!

Played fetch,

More fetching...

Faith decided to stay out of the water for a while & play with her yet another new imaginary friend. I wonder where she finds them?

Chloe looking all cute & wet. Hey, where's a cute picture of me???

Here's me doing my usual ball burying... There was one time I buried it deep under the sand until I could not find it anymore but Ms Owner managed to find & rescue it. I was so happy to see my ball again!

Remember the boat Chloe was barking at in one of the pictures? Well, Ms Owner decided to ask the man in charged of it whether we doggies are allowed on it. Guess what? He said YES!!! So we went on happily & enjoyed our 10 mins fun ride.

Here's the dude starting up the engine.

And off we go!

Faith posing like a show dog & enjoying the cool breeze rushing towards her face.

Ahhh... Titanic... My Heart Will Go On if you do not sink...

Chloe looked like she was having sea sick. She did not enjoy it as much as me & Faith did. She was really happy to get off it as soon as we finished...

She just laid down like that the whole time looking sooo sad.

Just chilling with our Owners...

Just a short video of us on the boat. We definitely recommend all doggies out there to try it out. It's pawsome! But there are risks ofcourse so don't be too smart to jump off the boat while it's moving OK?

After our beach fun & all, we were sent to the Doggie Pawlor which was just 5 mins away from the beach itself. Can you guess what we were there for?

Chloe & I were left there to take bath! I couldn't believe I was being left alone again but this time I had Chloe by my side so I didn't feel sooo lonely but still...

I was thirsty like hell after the swim so I drank alot of water.

When they started to drive off, I just stared looking all worried & confused. I thought they were abandoning us. Why didn't they leave Faith here too? I didn't understand why. Something about Faith being easier to bathe or something like that...

When we were picked up after 3 hours later, we were all fluffy & smelled like baby powder. Ugh! I prefer smelling like a dog anytime. But look at what Ms Owner bought for us at the Doggie Pawlor. Crunchy cow ribs!

The rest of our friends left before 12 in the afternoon but we extended our stay for 6 hours more so we only left around 6.30p.m. It was time to say goodbye to Aurora Court & Penang. But then again, we were so excited to go back home & go back to our normal everyday life routine. We'll be back soon Penang. Just wait & see!

Hi Amber,
You and Faith and Chloe had another wonderful adventure! I am so sorry it was "your time" or I know you would have had some certs and ribbons as well. I'm proud of Faith and Chloe for theirs!

I loved the dance and am glad you had a video of it.
