Friday, March 19, 2004BELATED HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TASHI BOY!
My little Lion,
I can't believe I forgot your birthday (March 4). I can't believe I wasn't able to give you a gift (will do that this weekend). You're 2 years old now, can't believe its been that long. Seems just like yesterday when we first picked you up from your Mommy Vicki's house. You were the best birthday gift, ever.
You were the youngest of 7 cute pups. Your Mommy Vicki named you and your other siblings from the colors of the rainbow. And because violet is the last color of the rainbow, she fondly called you, "Talong".
Because Lhasa Apso's orginated from Tibet, I gave you a Tibetan name. Your great great great grandpa was probably the Dalai Lama's favorite pet. Your name, Tashi means "good fortune" and indeed, that was what you brought me.
As with all other dogs, you have your quirks and eccentricities. You are like me and your daddy...very temperamental. You want to be left alone when you're in a bad mood or you will feel agitated otherwise. You love eating food which should not be eaten. How many times have I rushed you to the vet because you couldn't poo, only to find out from your gay doctor that you had eaten something toxic. I remember one time we went to pay him a visit and he took one look at your nails and said, "Naku, Tashi! Look at your nails. Parang eagle!" Hahaha! And remember that time we brought you to that nice lady's house in Makati to get you groomed? You gave her such a hard time even when she was already bribing you with all sorts of doggie treats. You're a bad, adorable boy. People have to work hard to earn your affection. You're fearless. I like that about you.
You give meaning to the phrase, "small but terrible". Your looks are so decieving. You look all cute and cuddly but you are very wary of strangers. Do you know that someone once asked Kristine if you were real? She was walking in the street while carrying you in her arms and a car stopped asking if you were a real dog? You look like a stuff toy, kasi. Do you know that there are 2 female Lhasa Apso's in the village who has a crush on you? Their "parents" want you to be the hubby/boyfriend of their doggies. But it's the lhasa apso who lives in Milan St., Angel, you really love, huh? I heard from Francine and Sunshine that you have been paying her weekly visits.
You've made all of us really happy, you know that? Thank you for jumping excitedly, wagging your tail and smothering us with kisses when you see us. It makes coming home all the more worth it. It's weird how you know when I'm sad, I don't know how you are able to sense it but nevertheless, thank you for sleeping beside me during those times.
I miss you, Tash. I'll see you this weekend and I'll give you the much needed bath that you hate (now, that trait, you didn't get from me. hehe!). I love you and thank you for keeping guard over Papa, Manang and my sisters. I promise to bring you those beggin' strips you love so much.
Loves the beach, wishes she had more time and money to travel, recently got hooked to climbing mountains, reads anything she can get her hands on, frustrated writer, adores her 3-year-old Lhasa Apso, Tashi, constantly needs caffeine,
