Ever since I started blogging, this is the first time that I am featuring Moshi, our family's dog. It's time you meet Moshi, our 10-year old Labrador-Golden Retriever-look-alike pet.
He sings to the tune of Selecta Ice Cream each time the ice cream vendor passes by. He can sing, yes, but he can also cry, cry and cry out loud!

Get to know Moshi a little bit more...
His first call is to alert us in the morning when it's time for him to pee and a little after eating to poop, that is, if nobody is around to anticipate his personal needs.

With the rain starting to pour, he attempted to run back to his corner had I not pulled on his collar. Well, just like yesterday, it was worth the wait after all! Yeah, patience indeed is a virtue, as it took me almost 30 minutes standing there outside, just watching and following his every movement with an umbrella (lest we both get drenched in the rain), whispering to him once in a while to hurry, as I had something brewing in the stove inside.
Just awhile ago, I heard his cry again. You guessed it right, it's raining! I peeped thru the window to see the chairs out of position. I went out to fix his sleeping carpet on the chair but he wouldn't use it. Guess where he preferred to lie down instead?
Oh there he is... underneath the chair with a newspaper for his mat. Do keep still and give us a quiet night tonight, okay? Back to work tomorrow after the two-day holiday and a two-day work suspension due to the storm. Does that call for a
