Going home to my parent’s house isn’t a regular thing, I easily get tired despite of its short distance but its gives me too much guilt knowing that someone gets heartbroken everytime we skip driving home.
I know how B wanted to see us more often, I know she looks forward to hugs and kisses and I know right she feels more love when Momi and Dadi are around. So to make up for the lost time, we ensure to bond with her no matter what. We ensure we got something for her when she makes salubong, it’s mandatory or else she would throw tantrums. Imagine how a 70 pounds lab gets rowdy, hehehe, actually it’s the other way around, she would just walk away and make mukmuk to one corner as if we don’t exist at all. Bunso, when we don’t have any it is because Dadi forgot it remember he’s in charge of take outs. Dadi’s getting older and sometimes becomes forgetful. 😀
Aside from getting her regular pasalubong the most we wanted to give her or rather do is to take her out and Saturday night was perfect. She loves Tagaytay cold and windy atmosphere, she loves to go around with us like the old days and the favorite coffee shop was the ideal place to hang around. Oh no, she’s not a coffee drinker, she’s not allowed to, her treat would be honey-glazed doughnuts and French toast alone.
See how focus she is, can’t take off those eyes. 😀
We used disposables or we bring chopsticks to feed her to avoid any sanitation issues and we believe that every pet owner should be responsible to his own.
We taught her to eat slow and little by little especially when we’re out, we give her reminders to behave doubly so she would be allowed the next time and in my mind I know she understands. If only I can freeze these moments, no leaving her again, no work for Momi, I would love to spend more time with her.
Bunso, even we’re apart I never stopped thinking of you every single day. I never stopped including you in my silent prayers, I even asked the Peach Sisters to help me pray that you live longer and healthier. Dadi does the same; he would always quote your name. We would browse your photos every night before going to sleep and say our goodnights. You see, one day we would be together once more. But while we’re still away from each other, make happy times with people around you now. I know how you find comfort in Dadi’s arms; he missed you so much and looking forward to our next home coming. Oh btw, we hope to see your flab back again, it’s bagay to you and Lolo thinks you’re better that way, no more diets for now. And tell Lolo to renew your vaccines, you’ll need that when we travel to Ilocos this Holy Week. We love you dearly Bunso, will call you from time to time. It’s Momi missing you here.
Not everyone would understand and accept the love we have for B, and I don’t mind. B may be four legged and completely different from us but she has a big heart, probably bigger than yours. 🙂
