All about Sandy and Bowie

Ohhhhh... I can't believe I almost forgot to introduce you to the newest addition to our family...

Meet Sandy! She's already 9 months old, and she's a Lhasa Apso dog. We got her last Friday, and she's been nothing but nice and gentle to all of us. She was named after little orphan Annie's dog, Sandy.

She may look like a Shih tzu to all of you. Well yes, Lhasa Apso dogs and Shih Tzu dogs belong to the same family, but you should notice that a Shih tzu's nose is more "pango". And I'm also very proud to say that my Lhasa Apso dog doesn't need grooming to maintain her long straight hair. Whether you comb it or not, she has naturally straight hair (but this isn't true for all Lhasa Apsos ha, just for Sandy ☺).

Honestly, I am no dog lover who would let a dog sleep beside me on my bed, but over the past few months I have learned to appreciate dogs. I'm just not a fan of very playful dogs though. I used to always wish I had my very own yorkie because I like the way they look, but after researching and finding out that terriers are considered to be really aggressive and playful, I had to think of another kind of dog. So what I'm trying to say here is that Sandy is perfect for me. She's so much more mature than other dogs already (she's already 9 months) and she doesn't run around the house just to get my attention. When I'm sitting down, she just sits down on the floor too. She doesn't bark so much and she's not too papansin. I think Sandy's perfect for our family! ♧

As for our other dog Bowie (short for Ba-wa-wow), she's slowly getting used to Sandy. Although you'll notice that she's sometimes jealous of her, she's also happy that she has a new playmate. Bowie can be really rowdy and giddy when we let her and Sandy play inside the house, but what usually happens is that Sandy will lie down on the floor just looking at Bowie... and Bowie will run around wanting Sandy to run after her. But because Sandy's on heat (and has her period now), I think Bowie has to play with Cara first. After all, sila naman talaga yung mag-bestfriend. hahaha. Even if I shout at Bowie most of the time (because of how she equates biting with playing), I still don't want her to get jealous of the new dog so I'm posting pictures of her too para lang equal sila. Haha.

Who knows... In a month or so, my dad just might get another dog. It's really been his past time lately. 

And no one's complaining...
