Something to wag my tail about..

Yesterday, right after we brought home the new STINKY (SIGH...), mum took me to this place, yet again.

That's right, it is YVR - Vancouver International Aireport. Look at how many people there were, but I was a good girl. As usual, I drew a lot of attention because of my teddy bear look.

So WHO is coming this time?? Is it MY Veronica again???

HMMMMMM...... I wondered, but mummy started asking me "BA-BA ne??", and I knew then, exactly WHO I was there to pick up!!

Yup, that's MY grandpa!!!!! "BA-BA" means dad in Mandarin, even tho he's my grandpa, I know him as "BA-BA" because that's what mum calls him. The "ne" in the end just made it a question. So if you translate it, mum asked me "where is dad??" (even tho he's really my grandpa..).

I was way too excited, so I couldn't help it by to let the world know that MY grandpa was here to see ME!!

I LOOOOVE my grandpa, and grandpa LOVES me too!! He gives the bestest rubs!

Grandpa got me for mum as her 16th B-Day pressie, and I gotta admit, that was a pretty smart move! This was me and MY grandpa on my first day home. I was just 7 weeks old in the picture with my ears glued.

Me and MY grandpa when I was 16 weeks old.

Here are pictures of MY grandpa and some FAT baby, taken 23 years ago...

Look at that FAT baby, spitting milk on MY grandpa and all,

Geez... and to say that I'm fat???

Anyway, I'm so happy MY grandpa is here! Finally, after all the STINKIES, there's something for me to wag my tail about!

How cool your grandpa came to see you!! It's so fun to see you so happy!

Guess what? Before you translated what your mum was asking you, I already knew? How could that be, you ask? Well, my hooman, while not Chinese, lived in mainland China for over 7 years and is teaching me some basic, survival Mandarin. Maybe we could have a chat in Chinese sometime!

Goob love to you girl,

P.S. The fat baby is TOO CUTE!! She could stand to gain back some of that fat from what I've seen. ;)

Oh Sunshade that is great news! I'm glad you are so happy because I know you've been a bit upset with all the stinkiness. Because your grandpa is visiting does that mean the Stinky1 is going back with him when he leaves?

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Good news for your Grandpa's visit. I hope it's okay, but I borrowed a bit of your footage for the latest music video. You've got real star power.

Amber-Mae said...

Wow, your grandpa came all the way to Canada just to visit you! How sweet of him... And you're so lucky t be allowed in the "Aireport". So sad that our country don't allow such thing. hehe, you were really anxious to look for your "Ba Ba ne" in that video. You looked like the happiest Airedale in the world!

Love licks,

Whoo hoo - how exciting - your grandpa is there to take Stinky home! Hopefully. Then there will only be one Stinky left to deal with. One day soon you might have a stinky-less household again.
