About a month after the arrival of Baby Amanda, my pawrents threw a party in the house to celebrate the addition of our newest family member with our relatives and friends. Daddy was worried that I might plan another escape during the party cos the front gate will always be opened as the flow of guests arrive at different times throughout the 2-day party. Daddy decided to put a mini gate made up of two panels of the dog gate at the door so that the "double doors" will prevent me from sneaking out of the house easily.
Trust me, it wasn't easy to sneak out of the house just like that. I mean besides the "double doors", there were also many pairs of legs blocking, hands patting... AND eyes on me. Tell me, how could I possibly run away?!
At first I was growling and barking and acting all macho when the first few guests arrived. I wanted to show them who's the boss in the house. And then I see some familiar faces, like grandpa and grandma, I get all happy and excited and started to wag my tail! Then more and more people came and I started to get a bit scared, especially with the rowdy kids who loves to scream. They really make me nervous.
Some kids were terrified of me and thought they entered the lion's den. After some coaxing from my pawrents, they tried to touch my coat and let me smell their hands. Very soon, they realised I am just a friendly doggie and only then do they dare to come near me. I honestly think I 'cured' them of doggie phobia!
Here are some pictures to share. And proof to show that I was also the star of the party.
