DOGS, still are man's BFF


Me and my TUMMY
Me and my TUMMY

I used to have a dog.
She was given to us by my long-time
brother-in-law to-be :)
At first... I was reluctant to cuddle her
because it's my
first time to take care of a puppy.
She was a mixed breed poodle.
But in time, I learned to love
and respect this adorable canine.

She became my beloved acquaintance and I
always looked forward to going home and
taking her in my arms.
HUG and keep her just beside me.
 I even wrote a poem to honor her unconditional LOVE.


my very first beloved dog, tummy
Meet my first and last pet (for now)... TUMMY
HER name was TUMMY
"Her eyes seems to witness every turn of events in our lives.
She seems to be a silent shock absorber... knowing every detail that surrounds her.
That barking sound echoes in every corner of the house.
She has found a shelter within our hearts...
Sneaking around like a sheep rambling in the wilderness.
I became a lover of her kind.
Holding her gently and feeling her warmth give me some kind of security.
She somehow lightens up my everyday.
She fills up certain space that no rational being can.
A good fellow that preserves and maintains own uniqueness and identity.
A loyal friend in her own right."

Now only her memories linger in my mind.
She found her final destination without me by her side.
Heat stroke was the cause of her demise.
But I know that...
All dogs go to heaven.
It's been nineteen years since Tummy died.
I called her by that name because 
her belly was so big.
she loved to eat.
She used to be my focus of attention...
But now, I'm married with three wonderful kids.
My life has never been more meaningful...
Seeing them grow up to be good children and providing them 
their needs and wants
is my utmost priority.

I just want to share with you these photos
of dogs that are now part of 
our family...

  10. Currently we have two mini pinscher and 1 lab. I hated dogs until they came but one dog really touched my heart, my dog Bruno, an askal. He was the smartest and affectionate dog I know, he died two months ago and I know I'll never love a dog as much as I love him.:(
