Alpha Intensive

No no no no no... It is not about me being the alpha, it is about this post being made up of words, words & more words.

See, it has been raining quite a bit where we are & it makes it impossible to take nice pictures.

Anyway, I've got a story to tell. I'll use a few pictures from the "archives" to "spice up" the story a little. And here's how it begins...

We set off to Chestnut Ave again yesterday afternoon. It started to rain before we even got there. Since it wasn't too heavy, we decided to still go on the hike. A third of the way we came to our favourtie spot...

We all enjoyed a quick dip. Then we heard our names being called. We got out of the water all ready to continue the exciting hike...

We started running ahead leading "the pack" as it were. MaMa started to call for us again cos she likes to "check" on us every so often to make sure we're keeping with the pack. That was when we noticed Jose was nowhere to be found. Aunty Y was worried but remained rather calm. We "combed" the surrounding area for close to half an hour, shouting out to Jose but still no sign of him. Aunty Y suggested one of us head back to the car while she continued her search around the water but MaMa knows better not to leave her alone there.

Then we lost PaPa as well!!! MaMa called out to him but there was no reply. He didn't tell us which way he was heading to look for Jose. By about 6.15pm MaMa had to make a decision. She told Aunty Y we should start heading to the car before it gets too dark & we all get lost in the woods.

As we headed along the path to the car we saw PaPa running with a "package" in his arm. It was Jose!!! PaPa found Jose en route to the car. Anuty Y was relieved, as you can imagine.

We can only guess that Jose had headed too far too quickly, lost sight of us & sorta lost his way. He must have used the scent that we left behind every so often to get back the path that leads us back to the car. He is a smart little terrior.

PaPa said Jose looked a little "shaken" when he found him. He was a little wary of PaPa as PaPa approached him. PaPa knew the only thing that could win him over were the yummy treats we brought along on each walk. And yes, PaPa was right, he ran to PaPa for the treats & the rest is history.

Aunty Choo has phobia for water... only enjoy looking at oceans and lakes but dare not swim in any of them.

Very brave of you all to swim in the lake, rivers and seas. I guess dogs never get drowned.... only human beings, right?

isn't it a little bit inconsiderate to be swimming in the reservoir considering that the people get their drinking water from there?

and i'm sure that there is a fine too.

wouldn't the press or love to hear about such people in singapore.

Hey Jaffe Boy,
Man are we glad your Papa found Jose. Our Mama would have been hysterical if we were lost. Too bad it had to rain on you guys too. It rained here today starting in the afternoon, so we had to go in the house.
Hey, is your birfday on May 14th??? That is Mama's birfday too!!! Yippee! We can celebrate 2 birfdays on one day.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
