Sweet cure for a boo-boo

Preston had a boo boo in the dog park today as result of rough and tumble play. It was just a small cut but the bloody paw did scare Mommy a little.

Mommy patched him up. What else is going to make him feel better?
These yummies certainly will!
Preston is always a fan of Sprinkles’ pupcakes.

Mommy and Daddy brought home a souvenir from their vacation.

A doggie treat from Houston’s Dessert Gallery Bakery and Cafe.

RodeoHouston 2011

RodeoHouston is the biggest annual event in Houston. It is actually the world’s largest live entertainment and livestock exhibition. It is a 20-day event attended by over 2 million people. Mommy and Daddy are excited about checking it out for the first time this year. Sadly, it is not a dog-friendly event and Preston couldn’t go even if he put on his rodeo cowboy costume…

It is a fun event where lots of people are going in their western outfits.

Food…food…food! all Texas-sized too!

Mommy and Daddy were most fascinated by the livestock exhibition.

Hmm…whom does this remind Mommy and Daddy of? See the resemblance?
Mommy and Daddy still have to learn to fully appreciate steer wrestling and bull riding but they had fun watching chuckwagon racing.

Mommy is back!

Mommy missed Preston so dearly when she was away.
Daddy put Preston in his study room when he went to work. It could get quite lonely being home alone all day. Mommy had remote access to the computer at home so she could start the home computer remotely and set up a video conference with Preston through a webcam. Isn’t technology a wonderful thing? Mommy got to chat with Preston everyday when he was alone at home.
Screen captures from the webcam:

Meet Gilli, Grandma and Grandpa’s beloved dog in Taiwan. Gilli is the family hero. Grandma and Grandpa has a beautiful garden but occasionally on warm summer days, there are unwelcomed visitors in their garden…snakes! (scary, huh) When that happened in the past, Gilli was always the first to find out. Sometimes, he just took care of them on his own. Hope Gilli continues protecting the family but stays safe at the same time. Thank you, Gilli!

Mommy is back from her trip. She didn’t bring home any dog treats because she didn’t want to get in troubles at customs for bringing in any meat products. Those sniffer dogs at customs are very good at their job, like this one Mommy saw in Houston airport…

But she did bring home some yummy human treats that Preston was also lucky to be able to get a bite or two.
Two of very well-known snacks in Taiwan-
Cow’s Tongue Biscuits (Niu-Se-Bing) and Sun Cake (Tai-Yang-Bing)

Mommy was also excited about her flight layover at Tokyo’s Narita Airport because she could get the famous Hiyoko– buns shaped like a baby chick.
