Everybody loves Chow Chow

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.

Chow Chow,
Your Baby sister is soo cute. Do you help your Mommy to change her nappies? She will remember you well when she is bigger. You are her first doggie, and you might end up giving her some rides. When my Mommy was a really little, her friend had a huge dog. That dog gave my Mommy and her friend rides some time. They were two and three at the time, so quite a while ago.

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hehe... Chow Chow, are you sure you didn't escape because there were too many people around or because there was too much good food that day?? :P

Amanda's a sweetie.. our mom says she misses her and can't wait to see her soon! In no time she will be old enough to play with you..

Good to hear from you again Chow Chow! Of course everybody loves you! Amanda is such a cutie!

Aki and Poopie said...

Sorry buddy. We had to agree with Huskee. We think all that food made you stay too! (We know we would!)

Boy, aren't you getting more and more handsome every post... We just love your cinnamon hue! I bet all the kids were just dying to hug you, you handsome fellow!

I am glad that you are being such a good big brother to Amanda. We cant wait for the both of you to play very soon!

Happy New Year Chowie!
