WHO came to see ME???

Mum took me to YVR (Vancouver International Aireport) today,

Everytime I was here, I was either seeing someone off, or picking someone IMPORTANT up! Only mum and I came, so obviously, we weren't seeing anyone off.

Soooooo, whom could it be that I was picking up???

See for yourself!!

Yes it's MY Grandpa and Ah Yi!!!

I haven't seen MY grandpa for SOOO long.... Last time he came was 4 years ago! Mum did get to see grandpa because she went to Taiwan to visit him, but I couldn't go with her because they would lock me up in a cage for 21 days to make sure I didn't have SuperBUGS! (What's a cage btw?)

I have only met Ah Yi once before today, so I didn't really say HI to her. But I do like her because I hear she takes really good care of MY grandpa, and she makes MY grandpa very happy, so that makes me very happy too!!

(mum: Sunshade doesn't bond with people easily, and is usually quite aloof towards people outside of her pack. That being said, once you've "earned" that bond with her, you'll have it forever, no matter how long you've been away. Over the years, there are probably only around 7-8 people that gets that kind of welcome from Sunshade.

Just the other day, I stopped by a coffee shop to get a coffee. Left Sunshade outside where I had clear view of her. Saw a man petting her, very gently, very respectfully. He must have petted her for at least 2 minutes, all the while Sunshade acted completely oblivious of his petting. She just stood there and looked straight ahead at the entrance to the coffee shop. Got my coffee and went out to greet her. Well, she came to life alright. Wagging and wiggling, barking, rubbing her face between my legs etc. The man that was petting her earlier was still around. He came over and said to me - that's a good dog you have there, he doesn't talk to strangers!

Btw, I don't understand why people always think I would dress my MALE dog in a pink harness and walk HIM on a pink leash!!!)

Checking to see if they brought any yummies for me,


That's ok grandpa, I'm just happy you came!!

I asked mum what I was suppose to do with the overwhelming, over-abundant happiness I was feeling,

She told me to just let it all out!

So I did. I just love Love LOVE MY grandpa!!

Awww cute! What a great visit!
Darwin's the same way. She's very aloof to strangers, but LOVES people she knows. And people always call her a him too even with her pink collar and harness. I dont get it. It's not like pink is MY favorite color and I want to dress my dog with it. Pink just looks better with her coat!

Hi Miss Sunshade, that's really very nice. I bet that you'll be really happy for days and days.

Sunshade, you are so lucky to get to have a grandpa! (Mommy says he looks so young.) Your happiness at greeting him again is understandable. Will you get to show him all around your favorite haunts? Btw, I,BabyRD, always find myself being called "him" and Mom tries to keep me looking as feminine as possible!
Have a great visit with your grandpa and Ah Yi.
Smooches from pooches,

Have fun with your Grandpa and Ah Yi!

How exciting for all of you! Are they staying long? Sunshade, I tell myself that if we met, you'd like me enough to greet me with some of that affection you showed your Grandpa!
